Levonorgestrel - ethinyl Estradiol (extended cycle) is a combination birth control pill (oral contraceptive) that contains a progestin (levonorgestrel) and estrogen (ethinyl estradiol) used to prevent pregnancy. Seasonale works to prevent pregnancies by inhibiting ovulation (the release of an egg from an ovary) and causing changes in the mucus of the cervix, making it difficult for sperm to penetrate and for an egg to implant.

Seasonale information

Side Effects
Available Form

The dose of this birth control pill is one tablet daily at the same time each day. Each pack contains 84 active tablets and 7 inactive tablets. Take 1 active tablet daily for 84 days, then take 1 inactive tablet daily for 7 days, and then begin the next pack to start the 91-day cycle again.

Talk with your doctor about the best time to start Seasonale. The first day of your menstrual period (bleeding) is known as Day 1. You should start taking your active tablets on the first Sunday after your period starts. If your period starts on a Sunday, take the first active tablet that day. Continue taking the active tablets for 84 consecutive days, then take 7 days of the white inactive tablets. You should have menstrual bleeding during the first 7 days after you have finished the active tablets.

The pills should be taken approximately the same time every day. You should use a second method of birth control (e.g., latex condoms or spermicides) for the first 7 days of the first cycle of pill use.

Many women have spotting or light bleeding during the first few months of taking the pill. Do not stop taking the pill even if you are having irregular bleeding. If the bleeding lasts for more than a few days, check with your doctor. Many women may also feel sick to their stomach during the first few weeks of taking the pill. If you do feel sick, do not stop taking the pill. The problem will usually go away. If it does not go away, check with your doctor.

If you experience vomiting or Diarrhea, or if you take certain medications (such as antibiotics), your pills may not work as well. If you start a new medication while taking birth control pills, check with your doctor or pharmacist to make sure that it will not reduce the effectiveness of the pills. Use a backup method of birth control, such as latex condoms or spermicides, until you can check with your doctor or pharmacist.

Many things can affect the dose of a medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

It is important that Seasonale be taken exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you miss pills at any time, the risk of becoming pregnant increases. If you miss one pink "active" pill, take it as soon as you remember, and then take the next pill at the usual time. This may mean that you might have to take 2 pills in one day. You do not need a backup method of birth control.

If you miss 2 pink "active" pills in a row, take 2 pills on the day you remember and 2 pills the next day. Then take one pill once a day until you finish the pack. Use a second method of birth control (e.g., latex condoms or spermicides) if you have sex in the 7 days after you missed the pills.

If you miss 3 or more active pills in a row, do not take the missed pills and leave them in the pack. Keep taking one pill every day until you finish taking the rest of the pills in the pack (except for the pills that were missed). For example, if you restart taking the pill on Thursday, take the pill under "Thursday" and do not take the previous missed pills. You may experience some bleeding during the week following the missed pills. Use a second method of birth control (e.g., latex condoms or spermicides) during the first 7 days after you restart your pills. If you miss your period when you are taking the inactive pills, call your doctor as you may be pregnant.

If you miss any of the white "inactive" pills, throw away the missed pills and keep taking the scheduled pills once a day until the pack is finished. A backup method of birth control is not needed unless you missed 2 or more pink "active" pills in a row within 7 days prior to starting the white "inactive" pills.

If you are not sure what to do about the pills you have missed, use a backup method of birth control any time you have sex and keep taking one pill each day until you can consult your doctor or pharmacist.

Store Seasonale at room temperature, and keep it out of the reach of children and pets.

Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g. down the sink or in the toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.
