Previfem Birth Control

One of the many birth control pills available to women is Previfem® (norgestimate/ethinyl estradiol). This product comes in packs of 28 tablets. One tablet is taken daily, at the same time each day. It is very important to take this medication correctly, as missing a dose increases your chance of pregnancy.
 
Breast tenderness, nausea, and headaches are a few of the side effects that may occur while taking Previfem. However, most women tolerate it well.
 
Though mainly used for birth control, Previfem is sometimes prescribed for off-label (unapproved) uses, such as:
 
  • Acne
  • Heavy menstrual bleeding
  • Painful menstrual periods.
