Vienva is easy to use.
You take one white pill per day for 21 days in a row, then take a peach-colored inactive pill for seven days. Take your birth control pill at the same time every day to increase how well it will work.
Also, when starting birth control pills for the first time, Pandia Health’s expert birth control doctors recommend using a backup form of birth control during the first week.
Vienva birth control pills have two main active ingredients: Levonogestrel (progesterone) [1 mg] and Ethinyl Estradiol (estrogen) [20 mcg].
The risk of experiencing negative side effects with Vienva is very low. It is possible for some women to experience mild side effects like headaches, nausea, spotting, bloating, water retention, and breast tenderness. Some women may also experience slight increases in blood pressure or blood sugar levels. Many women taking Vienva appreciate the beneficial side effects such as: lighter periods, fewer mood swings, and decreased acne.
It’s unlikely for someone to have serious side effects of Vienva birth control. In rare cases, Vienva may increase the risk of blood clots. Blood clots can happen in the lungs (causing chest pain and shortness of breath), in the stomach or legs (causing swelling and pain), or in the brain (causing a sudden and intense headache, double vision, and other symptoms).
Because cigarette smoking can increase the risk of serious birth control side effects, women taking Vienva should not smoke.

It’s possible that taking Vienva and other birth control pills can contribute to small amounts of weight gain, but this is usually due to fluid retention rather than true body fat. Each person is different and most research shows that birth control pills do not cause weight gain.

Estrogen containing birth control like Vienva may not be right for you, depending on your medical history. Tell your doctor if you have a history of health problems like epilepsy, cancer, heart disease, blood clots, diabetes, HIV/AIDS, or high blood pressure.

This depends on your definition of low dose. In the old days, pills had 110mcg of estrogen and then 50 mcg. So, when research says low dose, they mean anything under 50 mcg of estrogen. When we say low dose at Pandia Health we mean anything less than 30 mcg of estrogen which is NOT good for your bones if you are under the age of 30 years old. We recommend that you use at least 30mcg if you are under 30 years old.
