Preventing pregnancy is not the only reason that patients choose to get an oral birth control contraceptive. Birth control in a pill form was approved for use in 1960, so for over half a century, it has been tweaked to perform safely, effectively, and flexibly. Some women find that taking birth control lessens menstrual cramps while others find it to clear up facial acne. Each brand of oral contraceptive is different, but Natazia is a kind all its own. Natazia is the only FDA approved oral birth control contraceptive that works to lighten heavy periods of women who bleed high amounts during their monthly menstrual cycles, along with preventing pregnancy effectively.
Who is Natazia For?
Natazia is approved for women who experience heavier than normal periods. If you think that you experience heavy menstrual cycles, ask your doctor if Natazia is right for you. Your annual gynecological visit may only be once a year, so take advantage of asking your doctor about all of your contraceptive options, including one that could help to make life more manageable like Natazia. For women with heavy periods due to a condition of the uterus, like polyps or fibroids, Natazia may not be the right option. Again, talk to your doctor about which method of birth control is best for you; he/she will choose the option that is best suited for your health.
Who Should Not take Natazia?
Women who are smokers and over the age of 35 should not take Natazia. This is because taking oral birth control contraceptives increases the risk for health issues like blood clots in smokers. Blood clots can lead to heart failure and stroke, so if you wish to take birth control, you shouldn’t smoke. Women that have heart problems, have had a stroke, had or have cancer, or may be pregnant should also not take Natazia. Additionally, Natazia should not be prescribed for women who have heavy periods due to a medical condition of the uterus.
Common Side Effects of Natazia Include:
- Sore breasts
- Mood swings
- Weight gain
Taking Natazia: An Oral Birth Control Pill
Taking Natazia is as simple as swallowing the pill at the same time daily. Most women either take the pill as soon as they get up or when they lay down to go to sleep at night. Setting an alarm can be a helpful reminder of when to take your pill. A major concern for may women is that they will forget to take their pill on some days. This is okay, as there are detailed instructions on what to do if that were to ever happen. Most of the time you can just take the pill that you missed and you still don’t need any other form of contraceptive to prevent pregnancy. Preventing pregnancy and reducing the aggravation of a heavy period can be done with one pill every day!
