Blisovi Fe 1/20 is a prescription-only birth control pill that contains a combination of hormones - ethinyl estradiol and norethindrone. It is categorized as a "low-dose" oral contraceptive, meaning the level of hormones is lower than traditional birth control pills.
Blisovi Fe 1/20 works by preventing ovulation. This means that the hormone levels in the body remain stable throughout the month, preventing the release of an egg from the ovaries.
Additionally, the pill thickens cervical mucus, making it difficult for sperm to reach the egg. Finally, the uterus lining thins to make it hard for a fertilized egg to implant in the uterus.
Blisovi Fe 1/20 is typically recommended for women who want to prevent pregnancy. However, it should not be taken by women who have a history of blood clots, stroke, heart attack, liver disease, certain cancers, or uncontrolled high blood pressure.
Women who smoke or are over the age of 35 are also advised to avoid Blisovi Fe 1/20 because of the increased risk of blood clots.
