About Slynd 

Slynd is considered a progestin-only oral contraceptive (birth control pill), which stops the body from releasing eggs and creates an environment that makes it harder for sperm to attach to a fertilized egg.

Slynd is used to prevent pregnancy. Slynd is available only by prescription. It is available in a generic formulation as well as under different brand names, including drospirenone.

Slynd may be prescribed 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 prescribed.

If you're prescribed Slynd, be sure to complete the full course of the birth control pills unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to stop. If you don’t complete your prescription, the birth control pills may not be as effective in preventing pregnancy.

There is one FDA-approved use for Slynd, but it may also be used off-label to treat other conditions. Your online healthcare professional may prescribe it for any of the following common reasons.
