About Drospirenone; Ethinyl Estradiol
Drospirenone Ethinyl Estradiol tablets are a combination of 2 hormones an estrogen (Ethinyl estradiol) and progestin (drospirenone). Loryna birth control pill is used to prevent pregnancy. Yaz dosing works mainly by preventing the release of an egg (ovulation) during your menstrual cycle. Loryna review also makes vaginal fluid thicker to help prevent sperm from reaching an egg (fertilization) and changes the lining of the uterus (womb) to prevent attachment of a fertilized egg. If a fertilized egg does not attach to the uterus, it passes out of the body. Besides preventing pregnancy, Loryna medication may make your periods more regular.
Decrease blood loss and painful periods, and decrease your risk of ovarian cysts. Using this medication does not protect you or your partner against sexually transmitted diseases (such as HIV, gonorrhea, chlamydia).
How to use
