    Twirla Side Effects

    Twirla side effects

    The most common side effects of Twirla include: skin reactions at the patch site, nausea, headache, menstrual cramps and/or weight gain.  These are not all of the possible side effects of Twirla.  

    The chances of serious side effects are rare. Like pregnancy, hormonal birth control may increase the risk of serious blood clots especially in women who have risk factors, such as smoking, high blood pressure, high levels of cholesterol in the blood, diabetes, obesity, a family history of blood clots or are older than 35 years old. These may sound scary, but remember — those side effects are rare.

    What is Twirla Patch

    Twirla is a combination birth control contraceptive patch with 30 mcg estrogen and 120mcg levonorgestrel for women with a BMI less than 30 kg/m2.

    Twirla may not be as effective in women with a BMI of 25 kg/m2 or more. It lowers the risk of becoming pregnant by preventing the release of an egg from the ovary (ovulation). In addition, combination birth control also thickens the cervical mucus,helping to block sperm from getting into the uterus and getting to the egg.

    Do not use Twirla if you smoke cigarettes and are over 35 years old. Smoking increases your risk of serious cardiovascular side effects from combination hormonal contraceptives (CHCs), including death from heart attack, blood clots or stroke. This risk increases with age and the number of cigarettes you smoke. In these cases, Pandia Health Medical group’s doctors recommend progestin-only pill (POPs), IUD with hormone (Mirena, Liletta, Kyleena, Skyla), implant (nexplanon), the birth control shot (depo-provera), or condoms and spermicide.

    Do not use Twirla if your body mass index (BMI) is 30 kg/m2 or more. Check your BMI here. Women with a BMI of 30 kg/m2 or more who use combination birth control have a higher risk for developing side effects like blood clots compared to women with a BMI lower than 30 kg/m2.
