New Questions

Periods are optional! The only reason that we build the lining of our uterus every month and pop out an egg (ovulation) is to make a baby. On average in the US, periods start at 12 years old and women have their first baby at 26 y/o. If we aren’t going to make a baby, then why bother with that? Every time we shed our lining and pop out an egg unnecessarily, that adds to the risk of endometrial and ovarian cancer. That’s 14 years of monthly periods for no good reason. So you can turn those off with the ring or pill or IUD with hormones. It prevents endometrial and ovarian cancer and anemia. Women and physicians have done it since 1960s. And the natural state of a woman is pregnant or breastfeeding and she has no periods during that time. Refer her to the wings of inspired business podcast for more info.

Yes. Generics, by law, have the same active ingredients as their name-brand versions. Generics may differ on the inactive ingredients.

What is Taytulla?

Taytulla (ethinyl estradiol and norethindrone) is a birth control medication that can prevent pregnancy. It contains hormones that stop an ovary from releasing an egg (ovulation). Taytulla also changes the mucus of the cervix and the inner lining of the uterus so that it’s difficult for sperm to get into the uterus and for an egg to attach to the uterus.

In addition to preventing pregnancy, Taytulla can also be used to treat moderate acne in females over the age of 15 who have already started their period.

Taytulla Birth Control Side Effects

The risk of side effects while taking Taytulla is low. Some women experience mild symptoms like spotting between periods, headaches, nausea, breast tenderness, or changes in sex drive. These side effects tend to improve or go away within a few weeks to months.

Serious Taytulla side effects are rare but possible. For example, blood clots may develop which can block the flow of blood in certain parts of the body, such as the legs, chest, and head. Smoking increases the risk of blood clots, so you should never smoke if taking Taytulla or any other oral contraceptive.

FAQ

Does Taytulla cause weight gain?

Some women notice temporary mild weight gain when using Taytulla, especially in the beginning. This is generally due to fluid retention rather than true fat gain. Additionally, some women experience changes in their appetite while taking Taytulla birth control, which might also affect their weight.

Any other important information about Taytulla?

Prescription, over-the-counter, or recreational drugs may interact with Taytulla, including drugs used to treat HIV, cancer, seizures, and hepatitis C. Even some herbal supplements and vitamins could interact with Taytulla and make it less effective.

Always tell your doctor about the medications and supplements you take. If an alternative to Taytulla is necessary, our licensed medical providers at Pandia Health can help you make an appropriate selection.

What precautions should I be aware of with Taytulla?

Birth control pills are 91 to 99% effective at preventing pregnancy—provided that they are taken correctly! You shouldn’t use birth control pills if you don’t think you’d be able to consistently take your pill every day at the same time. Dr. Sophia Yen also recommends using a back-up birth control method during the first week of taking Taytulla.

Medications like Taytulla come with a small risk of allergic reactions. Talk to your doctor or one of our Pandia Health Care Advisors if you notice any symptoms like itching, rashes, or dizziness. In extremely rare cases, serious allergic reactions may occur. Call 911 immediately if you experience swelling of the lips, tongue, or mouth or if you have trouble breathing while taking Taytulla.

Taytulla might not be the best option for you if you have certain medical conditions, including high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, or severe migraines. That’s why it’s so important to communicate with a doctor you can trust before starting, stopping, or changing any medication like Taytulla.

How does Taytulla work?

Taytulla contains two types of female hormones, ethinyl estradiol (estrogen) and norethindrone acetate (progestin). These hormones can prevent pregnancy by:

  • Preventing ovulation (the release of an egg from an ovary)
  • Making it hard for sperm to reach the uterus
  • Making it hard for an egg to stick to the inside wall of the uterus

Unlike many other types of oral contraceptives, Taytulla is a capsule rather than a pill. The capsules are easy to take, but it’s important to take one at the same time every day to make sure it works effectively.

Simply take one pink “active” capsule per day for 24 days, then one maroon “inactive” pill for 4 days. The pack will then be empty, so you’ll just need to start again with a new pack. Taking the inactive pills (pills that don’t contain hormones) helps you stay in the habit of taking your medication every day at the same time.

Does Taytulla birth control cause infertility?

Taytulla does not cause infertility and you can still take Taytulla even if you want to have children in the future. When you’re ready to try for a baby, simply stop taking Taytulla with your doctor’s supervision and your normal full fertility should return within one to two menstrual cycles.
