Frequently Asked Questions

What is Qlaira? 

As a form of birth control, Qlaira tablets enable women to prevent unwanted pregnancy. In addition, they can also help women with their menstrual bleeding, alleviating their symptoms.

What type of pill is Qlaira?

As the combined pill, Qlaira consists of progesterone and estrogen, two female hormones. However, these pills contain synthetic versions of these two hormones that are metabolized as natural hormones. Progesterone is absorbed as its synthetic version, dienogest, and estrogen’s synthetic counterpart is estradiol valerate.

How do Qlaira pills work? 

Since Qlaira pills contain female sex hormones, they are able to change the way the body reacts throughout the menstrual cycle, tricking the body into believing that the ovulation process occurred when it actually had not.

During their menstrual cycle, women experience changes in their hormone levels. The role of hormones is to trigger the release of an egg from the ovaries, preparing the body for fertilisation. Estrogen and progesterone also affect womb lining, making it more suitable for a possible pregnancy. However, if the egg is not fertilised, hormone levels decrease, which leads to menstrual bleeding as a result of womb lining shedding.

Therefore, when women take Qlaira pills, the hormones prevent the body from releasing the egg. They also lead to the thickening of the mucus found in the cervix, which is another way how Qlaira prevents pregnancy. The pill makes it more difficult for sperm cells to fertilise the egg by stopping them from getting through the mucus at the womb neck.

Finally, Qlaira contraceptive pills also prevent pregnancy by changing the womb lining quality. This way, the womb is less suitable for egg implementation in case it has been fertilised.

What are Qlaira benefits? 

Women who decide to start taking Qlaira pills can experience the following benefits:

  • Qlaira pills prevent the release of an egg from the ovaries by making the body believe that ovulation took place.
  • This type of birth control also prevents sperm from entering and fertilising an egg by thickening the natural mucus.
  • These pills also make the womb lining less conducive to the possible implementation if an egg has been fertilised.
  • Qlaira also alleviates the symptoms of the menstrual cycle in women by making the bleeding lighter and regulating their cycles.

How do I take Qlaira? 

If you’re considering going on the pill and your medical professional has prescribed you Qlaira in the UK, you need to follow their instructions on how to use this contraceptive. Your doctor will advise you on how to take the pill and what to do if you miss to take one.

In general, Qlaira pills contain different amounts of hormones. In a pack, there are four different types of active Qlaira tablets:

  1. Dark yellow pills: There are two pills in a pack that feature a dark yellow colour. These pills consist of 2 mg of the synthetic estrogen – estradiol.
  2. Medium red pills: A Qlaira pack contains five of these tablets that contain both estradiol and dienogest, the synthetic version of progesterone. There are 2 mg of both of these hormones.
  3. Light yellow pills: There are 17 of these pills in a Qlaira pack. They contain both estradiol and dienogest, but in different doses. They contain 2 mg of estradiol and 3 mg of dienogest.
  4. Dark red pills: There are two of these pills that contain only estradiol in the dose of 1 mg.
  5. White pills: These pills are inactive.

How to take Qlaira

Here are a few guidelines on how to properly take Qlaira pills:

  • Make sure to take the pills orally.
  • Follow the markings on the pack.
  • Start taking the pills from the one marked with 1.
  • Use self-adhesive strips to mark the particular days on the pack.
  • Use the strips to mark the day you start taking Qlaira, and then follow the remaining day markings.
  • Take the white pills in order not to forget to take the pills from your next pack. This way, you don’t have to break the cycle. Qlaira pills provide protection against pregnancy even during the days you take the inactive pills.
  • Make sure to get a new pack and start taking Qlaira tablets immediately after completing the current pack. That is, once you’ve taken the last to white pills.
  • Try to take the pills at the same time every day. This way, it will be easier for you to remember to take a pill every day.
  • Take a Qlaira tablet on the first day of your menstrual cycle if you haven’t used this type of birth control.
  • Don’t break the cycle even if you’re switching from some other type of contraceptive to Qlaira. Take Qlaira immediately after you complete the pack of the other contraceptive pills you’ve been taking.

Want To Know More About Qlaira?

It’s always best to consult your doctor before going on the pill. They will not only examine you to determine what contraceptive pills will benefit you but also give you their expert advice on what to do in case you’ve given birth, had an abortion, etc.

In general, you should have the following factors in mind when going on the pill:

  • Taking Qlaira after giving birth. In this case, you can take the pill if you’re not breastfeeding. You can start a Qlaira pack on the 21st day after your delivery. These pills will immediately become effective, so you don’t have to use additional methods of birth control.
  • Taking Qlaira after an abortion. In the event you had a second-trimester abortion, start taking Qlaira within 21 to 28 days after the procedure. You won’t have to use additional contraception.
  • Taking Qlaira after using skin patches or a vaginal ring. To protect yourself against pregnancy, make sure to take the first Qlaira pill on the day you stop using the patches or remove the vaginal ring.

What to do if I missed taking Qlaira?

In the event you forget to take a pill from your Qlaira pack, you should take it immediately after you remember. This means that you can take the missed pill along with your next one. You will still be protected against pregnancy even if you missed taking a pill.

Forgetting to take a white pill doesn’t have any effect since white Qlaira pills are inactive. You can just continue taking the pills, as usual, disregarding the missed white pill. However, if you miss taking more than one pill, you should schedule a consultation with your doctor.

Additionally, if you happen to vomit or have severe diarrhea within the first three or four hours after taking Qlaira, make sure to take another pill once you get better because it’s likely your body hasn’t absorbed it entirely.

In this case, it’s important you take the pill within 12 hours and continue with your schedule. If you still feel sick and continue vomiting, make sure to contact your doctor.

As with any other type of medication, there’s always a possibility that you may experience some side effects. However, that doesn’t mean that you will experience any or all of them if you start taking Qlaira. Whether or not you will experience some of the following side effects depends on your individual case.

Some women who start taking Qlaira may experience the following:

  • Feelings of depression
  • Feelings of nausea or possible vomiting
  • Pain in the abdominal region
  • Migraines or headache
  • Gallstone
  • Reduced sex drive
  • Gaining or losing weight
  • Infection such as candidiasis or aginal thrush
  • Possible problems with the liver
  • Tenderness in the breasts
  • Enlargement of the breasts
  • Oedema or retaining extra fluid in the body cells
  • Blood clotting in the blood vessels
  • Discomfort while wearing contact lenses because of the corneal curvature steepening
  • Irregular menstrual bleeding, breakthrough bleeding, or spotting
  • Possible skin patches and reactions
  • Higher blood pressure

Additional precautions

You should consult your doctor before taking Qlaira if:

  • You are older than 35.
  • You are pregnant. Since these pills are intended to prevent pregnancy, you should not take them. Make sure to contact your doctor if you believe you might be pregnant and stop taking the pills.
  • You are breastfeeding. Since these pills tend to cause women to produce less breast milk, women who are breastfeeding should not take Qlaira.
  • You have certain medical conditions or a higher risk of stroke, blood clots, heart attacks, etc.
  • You’re taking additional medications. It’s important that you inform your doctor if you’ve been taking certain medications prior to going on the pill. You should also let them know if you need to start taking certain medications while you’re on the pill. They will determine whether it’s safe for you to combine Qlaira with other drugs.
