Product Details

How to Use Vestura

Vestura is super easy to use. Simply take one pill every day, at the same time each day. Many women find that taking Gianvi before bedtime or just after their largest meal of the day helps reduce nausea and other side effects. After taking 21 days of active pills, you’ll switch to 7 inactive pills with no hormones.

The inactive/placebo/bleeding week pills are there to help you in the habit of taking your pill every day.

Vestura Dosage

Vestura birth control pills have two main active ingredients: Drosperinone 3mg (progesterone) and Ethinyl Estradiol 20 mcg (estrogen).

Vestura Side Effects

The risks are very low, but some women have experienced unwanted side effects when taking Vestura. Minor ones include breast tenderness, headaches, nausea, swollen feet or ankles, and slightly elevated blood pressure or blood sugar levels. Positive side effects are also a possibility, too — reduced acne, fewer mood swings, and other perks are fairly common.

The chances of serious side effects are extremely unlikely, but some cases have been documented. Symptoms include heart disease, blood clotting, shortness of breath, migraines, vision problems, slurred speech, confusion, and fainting. Those who wear contacts or are nearsighted may notice vision problems as well.

These may sound scary, but remember — they’re very rare.

What is Vestura?

Vestura is a “low dose” combination oral contraceptive pill (OCP, birth control medication, birth control pills) that prevents pregnancy by preventing the release of an egg (ovulation), and thickening the cervical mucus, blocking sperm from getting into the uterus and getting to the egg.

Sophia Yen does not recommend “low dose” pills for those aged 30 and under because it is not good for your bone density. It is better to be on a birth control pill with a minimum of 30 mcg of estrogen (ethinyl estradiol) until you are 30 years old. Watch this video if you want more information. Instead, Dr. Yen recommends you use the slightly higher dose version of this medication Yasmin and its generics.

If you have high blood pressure or certain other conditions, Isibloom may not be your best choice. Dr. Yen and her team at Pandia Health often recommend alternative options including progestin-only pills, IUDs with hormones (Mirena, Liletta, Kyleena, Skyla), implants (nexplanon), the birth control shot (depo-provera), condoms, and/or spermicide.

Frequently Asked Questions

Very few women experience weight gain when taking Vestura. Vestura has a theoretical diuretic effect, meaning it helps shed water from the body.

As with any new prescription, you should go over anything you’re already taking with your doctor or Pandia Health Care Advisor before starting on Vestura. This includes recreational drugs, over-the-counter meds, and even herbal supplements. Even something as relatively harmless as St. John’s wort can cause Vestura to be less effective at preventing pregnancy. There are certain meds you should absolutely bring up. These are aromatase inhibitors, cancer medications, HIV drugs, seizure medicines, and those used for chronic hepatitis C.

Pretty much every kind of prescription birth control comes with a tiny risk of allergies, including Vestura. The symptoms are usually mild and include rashes, itching, dizziness,  or more serious symptoms of trouble breathing, and swollen lips, throat, or tongue. If you experience the latter, STOP the medication and call 911 or at least go to the emergency room.

Depending on your medical history, hormone-based birth control may not be for you. It’s important to discuss your medical history with your physician or one of our helpful Pandia Health Patient Care Advisors before you get started on Vestura. This is especially the case if you have cancer, heart disease, blood clotting, diabetes, or high blood pressure.

Vestura uses a blend of two hormones, estrogen and progestin, to make your body think it’s pregnant so a real pregnancy won’t happen. It’s super easy to use. Simply take one pill every day, at the same time each day.

Many women find that taking Vestura before bedtime or with your largest meal of the day helps reduce nausea and other side effects. After taking 24 days of active pills, you’ll switch to 4 days of inactive/placebo/sugar pills. These inactive/placebo pills with no hormones are there to keep you in the habit of taking a pill every day.
