What is Lutera?

Lutera is a low-dose birth control pill. It’s just as good at lowering your chances of becoming pregnant as other pills, but is better for women who normally get side effects (win-win). It’s called a “combined” pill because it contains two versions of naturally produced hormones. These are called levonorgestrel (a type of progesterone) and ethinyl estradiol (a kind of estrogen).

When you take Lutera, your hormone levels change, and this stops the body from doing the regular things it does to make you ready for pregnancy. Combined pills like Lutera are one of the most effective methods of birth control.

Does Lutera have a generic name?

Yes, quite a few. Let’s back up a second — generics are pills that have the same ingredients, in the same amounts. Generics for Lutera include Alesse, Aviane, Delyla, Falmina, Larissa, Lessina, Orsythia, Sronyx, Vienva, Evaluna 20, Anulette 20, Prionelle, Leanore, Microlite and Aubra EQ.

Because all of these birth control pills contain exactly the same levels of the same hormones, the way they work and the types of side effects you could get are the same. The main differences are what the pills look like, who makes or markets them (Mayne makes Lutera) and how much they cost. Lutera is pretty cheap for this type of pill, but Vienva is a little cheaper.

How does Lutera work?

There are two hormones in Lutera. They’re pretty much the same as progesterone and estrogen. You have these hormones naturally in your body, and they fluctuate over the course of your menstrual cycle. When they rise and fall, they tell your body to do different things like ovulate and shed your womb lining (that’s when your period happens).

The way the pill works is by supplementing hormone levels in the body. This tricks your body into thinking that ovulation has already happened. The ovaries don’t release an egg, and fertilization can’t take place. These hormones also stop the lining inside the womb from getting thicker, making it less likely that an egg would be able to implant itself there, assuming it somehow got fertilized. For some women, this has the added benefit of making periods lighter.

How to take Lutera

It’s important to take Lutera exactly as the doctor tells you. There’s detailed advice on the package insert that comes with your Lutera pill, which also includes everything you need to know about what to do if you miss a pill. You can always speak with your doctor or pharmacist if you’re unsure.

There are a few different ways to start taking Lutera. They’re listed here, but you should discuss them with the doctor to decide what’s best for you. One way is to start on the first day of your period. This way, you’re protected immediately. Alternatively, you can wait until the Sunday after your period starts. On that Sunday, take the first white pill in the pack. You’ll need to use a back-up birth control method like condoms for a week because this way doesn’t protect you immediately.

Make sure you take Lutera at the same time each day. The Lutera pack contains 21 “active” white pills (which contain hormones) and seven inactive pills (which are included to help you get into the routine of taking Lutera every day).

How effective is Lutera?

Lutera is highly effective when taken correctly. Fewer than one in 100 women who take the pill exactly right over a 12 month period will become pregnant.

Missing pills makes Lutera less effective. If you’re more than 12 hours late in taking your pill, it’s officially missed. If you do forget to take a pill, take it as soon as you remember. Then take your next pill at the regular time.

If you go to take a pill and realize you forgot your last pill, take two at once. Then return to one pill a day. If you miss more than two pills, speak with a doctor or your pharmacist for more information. You should use barrier methods (like condoms) until a high level of protection has returned. Refer to the package insert for more help on what to do if you miss a pill.

Lutera: FAQ

Have something specific you want to know? Search our info below, or ask our experts a question if you can’t find what you’re looking for.

Does Lutera help acne?

Answer:
It depends on the person taking it. Combined pills like Lutera can help reduce acne. Because all bodies are different, though, it’s also possible that Lutera wouldn’t change your skin at all, or that it could even cause acne as a side effect. If you’re looking for a pill that specifically helps with acne, or if you experience acne as a side effect when taking Lutera, let the doctor know and they can suggest an appropriate treatment for you.

Why should I buy Lutera with Treated?

Answer:
Start a Treated subscription plan today and get Lutera sent right to your door, with refills as often as you need them. All it takes is a quick consultation with a licensed doctor and your prescription is on the way to an online pharmacy to be filled.

It’s all entirely online, so no need to put on pants or leave the house. Instead, your pill is shipped to you in discreet packaging, as often as you need it. And you can log in to your Treated account and change, pause or cancel your plan at any time.

Is there more than one Lutera dosage?

Answer:
Yes. Levora is a slightly higher dose of the Lutera pill. It’s recommended for women who tried Lutera but found it didn’t do enough to control menstrual symptoms, like acne or heavy periods.

The best thing to do is let the doctor you’re consulting with know what you want out of your pill. Plain and simple birth control? Lighter or more regular periods? Help controlling symptoms like vaginal dryness or swollen breasts? We’ll work with you to find a birth control method that meets your needs. And if you try it for a few months and aren’t feeling it, switching to a different pill is easy with a Treated subscription.

Does Lutera cause weight gain?

Answer:
There’s no evidence linking birth control pills and weight gain. Despite that, many women who take the pill find that their weight fluctuates. Because weight changes can be due to so many reasons, it’s not known whether there is any true correlation between the pill and weight gain.

If you do find yourself experiencing weight fluctuations when taking Lutera, speak to a doctor. They may be able to help or suggest a different pill.

Does Lutera have any other health benefits?

Answer:
Lutera is a “low dose” combined contraceptive. This means it contains a reduced level of the hormones necessary to prevent pregnancy. One reason some women choose Lutera is because it can make periods less heavy and painful. Some women observe minimal to no bleeding during their period when taking Lutera. Lutera can also be prescribed to treat acne or ovarian cysts.

Can I take Lutera with food and alcohol?

Answer:
You can take Lutera with or without food. If you experience feelings of sickness or nausea, try taking the pill with a meal. It’s generally safe to drink alcohol while taking Lutera, but you should keep your alcohol consumption within healthy limits.

Can you get generic Lutera?

Answer:
Yes, there are several other brands that are the same as Lutera. They include Alesse, Aviane, Falmina, Larissa, Lessina, Orsythia, Sronyx, Vieva, Evaluna 20, Anulette 20, Prionelle, Leanore, Microlite and Aubra EQ. These all contain the same ingredients as Lutera and work in the same way.

If you used to take one of the above pills but it has been discontinued, Lutera may be a good alternative for you.

Are Lutera and Vienva the same?

Answer:
They’re very similar. The hormones in both pills are the same, and the amounts of each are the same, so they work in a very similar way.

The main difference is that the price of Lutera is a little higher than that of Vienva.

Which is better: Aviane or Lutera?

Answer:
They’re both the same medication, just in different packaging. So they should be as effective as each other and have the same side effects.

They are a little different in price. Lutera is slightly cheaper than Aviane.

That said, some women may find that a particular brand works better for them, even though the ingredients are the same.

If you’re not sure which is best for you, or you’re thinking about switching, log in to Treated and ask the doctor for help.
