Lutera Birth Control

Women who are interested in taking a pill for birth control may want to consider Lutera™ (levonorgestrel/ethinyl estradiol). This generic version of Alesse® contains two different hormones that work to prevent pregnancy by stopping ovulation, altering the lining of the uterus, and changing the cervical mucus.
 
When taking Lutera for birth control, you need to take it every day, preferably at the same time each day. Missing pills increases the risk for an unplanned pregnancy. If you forget a dose, your instructions will depend on how many pills you missed and where you are in your cycle.
