What is Vienva?

Vienva is a combined birth control pill that’s used to stop you from getting pregnant. It’s over 99% at preventing pregnancy when it’s used correctly, according to instructions.

The hormones that Vienva uses to prevent pregnancy are Levonorgestrel and Ethinyl Estradiol. It’s a lower-dose alternative to some other types of birth control which means that it’s less likely to cause the hormonal side effects that can be associated with some birth control pills.

It’s known as a ‘mono-phasic’ birth control method as it contains consistent levels of hormones in active pills. Vienva comes in packs of 28 so that you don’t have to worry about remembering to take a break in your cycle, but you’ll still have a break in hormones to have a period.

How does Vienva work?

It works by preventing the release of an egg during your menstrual cycle and changes the conditions in your vagina and womb to prevent an egg from fertilizing. It makes your cervical fluid thicker so that sperm can’t get through and prevents your womb lining from building up. This means that an egg can’t implant there, which signals the start of a pregnancy.

Birth control can also help to make your periods lighter and more regular – this can be really helpful if you have heavy periods or an irregular cycle.

Vienva doesn’t protect you or your partner from sexually transmitted diseases, it just reduces the risk of pregnancy. Barrier birth control methods like condoms are the only way to prevent sexually transmitted diseases, though these aren’t always 100% effective.

What doses of Vienva are there?

Vienva birth control pills contain 0.1mg of Levonorgestrel and 0.2mg Ethinyl Estradiol. In each pack of 28 pills there are 21 active pills that contain these hormones and 7 inactive pills that have no effect. This means that although you take this birth control continuously, you have a dose of hormones for 21 days out of the 28 with the remaining 7-day break allowing you to have a period. This means you don’t have to keep track of dates or when to restart a pack of pills.

There are other birth control pills that work in a similar mono-phasic way to Vienva, but contain higher doses of the active ingredients. Another alternative is a biphasic or triphasic birth control pills that stage hormone levels throughout the month. If this is what you’re looking for then, you’ll need to switch to a different type of birth control pill.

How to take Vienva

You should always follow the guidance given to you by your health provider and read the instructions that come with your Vienva prescription carefully. Even if you’ve used it before or you feel that you’re familiar with using birth control.

It’s important to take this birth control as instructed to ensure that you’re more than 99% protected from unwanted pregnancy. The instructions will tell you what to do if you miss a dose.

Vienva comes as either a chewable pill or a pill that needs to be swallowed without chewing. You can swallow or chew the chewable pill. Your manufacturer’s directions will tell you which type of pill you have and how to take it.

Here are some general instructions to take Vienva:

  • You should start your very first dose of Vienva on the first Sunday following the beginning of your period. If your period starts on a Sunday, this is when you should start Vienva.
  • Take Vienva by mouth, usually once a day, every day.
  • It’s important not to skip any doses, start any packs late or take your pill at a different time of day to usual as this could leave you unprotected.

You should have your period in the 7 days where you take your inactive pills. After you’ve taken the last inactive pill then you should start a new pack the next day whether you’ve had a period or not. If your period doesn’t come during this time, it’s best to get checked out by your doctor.

Some people find it useful to set a reminder to take their pill so that they don’t forget to take it, even if they’re traveling or in a different time zone.

Vomiting, diarrhea and illness can stop all birth control from working well. If you’ve been unwell you might need to use a back-up birth control method (like condoms) to ensure that you don’t become pregnant.

How long does it take Vienva to work?

If it’s the first time you’re taking birth control, or you’re starting without switching from another type of hormonal birth control then you’ll need to use another type of contraception to prevent pregnancy. For the first cycle of Vienva, you should use an additional form of non-hormonal birth control (like condoms or spermicide) for the first 7 days to prevent pregnancy.

This will mean that the hormones in Vienva have had enough to reach optimum levels in your body to protect you from unwanted pregnancy. If you’re not sure about this or you need help, ask your doctor for advice.

What should I do if I make a mistake when taking Vienva?

If you forget to take a pill or you’ve been ill with vomiting or diarrhea, then you may not be protected. If this is the case then you should use a back-up method of birth control like condoms or spermicide for 7 days to avoid becoming pregnant.

You should follow the directions in the leaflet that comes with your prescription on what to do next. If you’re not sure if you took your pill, or you think you may have taken too many birth control pills too closely together, consult your doctor for help or advice.

If you do not get your period during the time where you’re taking the inactive pills in the pack then you should get in touch with your doctor for a check up, especially if you have any concerns about something that might have affected the effectiveness of your Vienva.

Vienva: 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.

How is Vienva different to other birth control pills?

Answer:
Vienva is a low dose birth control pill. That means it contains a lower dose of the active hormones that prevent pregnancy. This doesn’t mean that it’s less effective than other types of hormonal birth control, but does mean less hormonal side effects than other types of birth control with higher levels of hormone.

If you’ve had side effects from other birth control that uses higher levels of hormone (such as Levora or Seasonale for example) then Vienva might be a good option for you.

Is Vienva similar to any other birth control pills?

Answer:
Some other birth control pills contain the same hormones in the same levels as Vienva. These include Lutera, Aviane and Microlite. They’re made by different manufacturers and have different packaging, but the active ingredients used are the same.

How effective is Vienva?

Answer:
Vienva is more than 99% effective when taken correctly every day. This effectiveness drops slightly if you miss a pill, make a mistake or the pill isn’t absorbed due to sickness.

Do I need a prescription for Vienva?

Answer:
You need a prescription for Vienva so a doctor can make sure it’s safe for you to take. They’ll check out your medical history and speak to you about whether it’s the right birth control for you. They might ask you some medical questions and do a general health check too.
