Junel 1/20 (21 Day)

Description

Concerned about side effects or looking for less estrogen? Combination birth control pill Junel 1/20 contains a lower dose of estrogen compared to other pills, which may help prevent side effects like headaches and nausea. The pill contains progestin and estrogen, which prevent pregnancy by inhibiting the release of an egg during your menstrual cycle and by thickening vaginal fluid to make it more difficult for sperm to reach the egg. Junel 1/20 is not considered safe for women over 35 who smoke or women with history of blood clots or breast cancer. Keep in mind that oral contraceptive pills do not protect against STIs like HIV, gonorrhea, and chlamydia—only condoms do that!
