Seasonique .15/.03mg 182 tablets


The usual cycle of Seasonique involves taking active hormone pills for 84 consecutive days, followed by 7 days of low-dose ethinyl estradiol. This regimen leads to four yearly menstrual periods instead of the typical monthly cycle. By extending the cycle, Seasonique may benefit from fewer menstrual periods, which can be preferable for some women.



Seasonique is an extended-cycle oral contraceptive pill designed to reduce the frequency of menstrual periods from once a month to once every three months. It consists of a combination of two hormones, ethinyl estradiol (a synthetic estrogen) and levonorgestrel (a synthetic progestin), which together work to prevent ovulation, alter the cervical mucus to prevent sperm penetration and change the lining of the uterus to prevent implantation of a fertilized egg.
