About Loryna Birth Control 

Loryna is considered a "third generation" oral contraceptive pill or Combined Oral Contraceptives Substances, which function by suppressing ovulation. It is made with two contraceptive hormones, drospirenone and Ethinyl estradiol. Like any oral contraceptive pill, this medication can only be used for contraception if taken daily.

Loryna, like other hormonal birth control, does not offer protection against any other sexually transmitted diseases. It does not as emergency contraception if you are worried you may be pregnant, because it will not prevent ovulation if it has already occurred. 

Some other conditions that Loryna is known to treat include acne and premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD).

Loryna is available only by prescription. It is available in a generic formulation and under different brand names, including Gianvi, Jasmiel, Lo-Zumandimine, Nikki, Ocella, Syeda, Yasmin, YAZ, Yaz 28, Zarah, Zumandimine, Zumandimine. These brand names have different amount of hormones, which may be chosen by you and your doctor together based on your history.

Loryna may be prescribed in capsules or as a tablet. It’s always important to follow the specific instructions on your prescription, as they can vary based on the formulation and dosage you are prescribed.

If you are prescribed Loryna, be sure to take it daily unless you no longer want contraception, or unless your doctor or pharmacist explicitly tells you to stop.
