Zovia 1 Medication
I put my bc bill in a pill box and probably take them out of order. I use zovia 1/35. Is there a reason the active pills should be taken in order?
I am wondering what is the brown discharge I am having, I am on birth control, zovia 1/35 it has been going on since thursday and its tuesday now.
BTB: Oral contraceptives tend to have a thinning effect on the lining of the uterus (endometrium). If the lining becomes too thin, it becomes fragile and small areas may break down causing either bleeding or brown spotting (btb). Of course, noncompliance (skipping or consistently taking them later) can cause premature breakdown and bleeding or failure. See gyn if problem persists. ...Read more
Taking zovia 1-35 on 3 mth cycles for heavy bleeding from a fibroid. I am only midway through my 2nd pack for this cycle and having very light/tan spotting that seems mucus-like. What's going on?
Could be normal: Any change in activity? Recent sex? Probably it's just breakthrough bleeding, especially if there' s a fibroid. Often the pills won't stop bleeding from a fibroid. You may want to discuss a Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud with your doc if the pills don't work. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have been taking The Zovia birth control pill for almost 3 months. I'm on the last week of pills for the third month. Will I ovulate?
Birth control: Birth control pills prevent pregnancy through several mechanisms, mainly by stopping ovulation. If no egg is released, there is nothing to be fertilized by sperm, and therefore you cannot get pregnant. If you stop the Birth control, then your hormones can return to normal, and you may ovulate, and become susceptible to getting pregnant if you have unprotected sex during ovulation. ...Read more
What is the difference between Sprintec BC and Kelnor (Zovia) BC just switched, what side effects should I keep an eye out for?
If i just had sex but forgot its time for my placebo birth control week, could i skip my placebo week and start a new pack? My brand is zovia.
Many do: Some patients prefer not to take the placebo week pills. As long as you follow the directions taking one pill per day during the 21 days and restart the next pack no more than 7 days late the pills will be effective. It is easier to just take the pills as the come in the pack so you don't have to keep up with it. Better yet- consider an even easier more effective option such as an IUD or Nexplanon ...Read more

Is it good to use safeway brand medication like there vitimins(spellcheck), vs sombody like one a day?
Yes, should be fine: If a person has knowledge of nutrition and has a very balanced diet, then he may not need to take a daily multivitamin because his foods contain enough. I recommend each person take a multivitamin because many people don't have a truly balanced diet. Some people need more vitamin d, calcium, folate, omega3, etc..., depending on individual issues. Generics are fine if one trusts the store or maker. ...Read more
