My birth control was switched from emoquette to enskyce three months ago and I am very pleased with the medication overall. It does the job and I have had no strange side effects.

This medication made me angry and difficult to be around. I felt demon possessed after the 1st week of being on it. I stopped taking this after the 1st month when I realized I was looking for someone to physically hurt. I am not an angry mean person.

Condition: Birth Control EffectivenessEase of UseSatisfaction

I’ve been on this pill for 7 months now. I had to get off the copper IUD and this is what I ended up with. It has not helped with acne. My complaint: I have gained 10+ pounds since I’ve been on this pill…no diet change, no decrease in my exercise. My doctor says that the pill does not make anyone gain weight. Sorry, but I stayed at 120lbs after I had my daughter (with copper IUD) for two years and after I got on this pill I have steadily put on a little over a pound a month. My jeans and dresses LITERALLY do not fit. I had to go buy bigger clothes. I’m not happy with this pill. I’m not going to go in and argue with my doctor, but this whole “it’s just water weight” is crap. I’m not telling anyone not to try this pill, this was just my experience.Read More Read Less

This was the first method of birth control I tried. I took it for a month but switched to the patch (only because I kept forgetting to take it everyday) but that didn’t work either so I switched back. Overall good experience. No strange side effects. It also made my period much lighter and they only last 2 ish days instead of the usual 5.

Broke out a little the first month but then my skin went back to normal. Nausea on this BC was really bad for me as well as headaches I got almost daily. I also experienced A LOT of vaginal dryness which caused burning. Diminished sex drive was also an issue. No weight gain though. I was on this pill for 8 months and will now be switching to a different pill in hopes of not experiencing these side effects.

I was switched from Apri to Enskyce because I was told it was cheaper. NOT WORTH IT. Enskyce gave me terrible mood swings. I would get mad at every little thing my bf did and it caused lots of fights. Good think he is super patient and understanding and even suggested that it might be my BC. I havenâ??t had issues with my depression in months and when I started Enskyce I would go multiple days in a row feeling super sad and even having suicidal thoughts for literally no reason. I cried at anything and everything. My sex drive went down so much it was basically none existent. I highly recommend if you have ANY other option, then do anything you can to avoid taking this contraceptive. Read More Read Less

I broke out a little bit in the beginning, but I expected that as I have sensitive skin. I was on ortho tri cyclen which made me gain about 20 lbs and was really scared about “what could happen with THIS one” but I was pleasantly surprised. No cramps, nausea, or anything like that, though I did notice when I eat I get fuller faster, so I think it suppressed my appetite. But my sex drive is fine, I feel really good!

I wanted to write a review for Enskyce after being on it for 6 months after 3 back to back pregnancies and our only means of birth control. It cost me nothing to pick it up and I only experienced mild breakout the first month of being on it. No mood swings or changes that I felt from taking it other than the mild breakout the first month. It has worked well as our only means of contraception. No pregnancies yay lol. Sorry if tmi but it has not shortened or lighten my period. I know some people say birth control can but it has done nothing for me in that aspect. It has not gotten heavier but not lighter either. No weight loss or weight gain in 6 months either. I would definitely recommend this birth control. Read More Read Less

I did not last a full week on this birth control pill because the nausea was too much for me to handle. The minute I stopped taking it, the nausea went away. I immediately called my doctor and was switched to an alternative pill that has given me no problems thus far.

I’ve been taking this medication for three years. I’ve never had any problems. It’s nice to know when to expect my period. My periods are also lighter and shorter.

Does the job. Made my periods light and short. But It has lowered my sex drive tremendously though.

The pill works, but I am always very nauseous the first one or two days of each pack. It is unbearable. I am going to the doctor soon to talk about switching.

1 ShapeCreated with Sketch.thumb_up copy 5Created with Sketch.Report this postFill 3Created with Sketch. Condition: Birth Control EffectivenessEase of UseSatisfaction

I have only been taking Enskyce for a week and I am nauseous 24/7 and throwing up almost every night. (I take the pill at noon).

1 ShapeCreated with Sketch.thumb_up copy 5Created with Sketch.Report this postFill 3Created with Sketch. Condition: Birth Control EffectivenessEase of UseSatisfaction

I’m 6 months into the medicine and I can say that my periods are lighter and my acne is going away. However, I still get very painful cramps, I’ve become more emotional and the worst side effect has been the nausea. I’m extremely nauseas at the start of each pill pack which is very misleading because that is also a symptom for pregnancy which is what I’m trying to prevent. I’m going to contact my doctor soon about switching because I can’t take feeling this nauseas each month anymore.

I used to have another birth control but recently switched to this for lower estrogen and its literally been the worst. My emotions are all over the place and I end up acting like a child, cannot wait to switch

This treatment has been amazing. I used to be in such pain from my periods that I would pass out, and Enskyce has really impacted my overall lifestyle during my period, along with not fainting.

ShapeCreated with Sketch.thumb_up copy 5Created with Sketch.Report this postFill 3Created with Sketch. Condition: Birth Control EffectivenessEase of UseSatisfaction

My doctor prescribed this to me to help with my periods since they were so painful and heavy and also as a birth control. Overall it made my periods so much lighter and pretty much taken away cramps minus a few random ones. When I first got on it it did make my period a day longer but them second one was shorter. I have found out however it makes my anger a little more easy to trigger than normal when I am on my period but that was pretty much normal before since PMS is a huge deal with me. But overall I’m pretty happy with this.Read More Read Less

I am going on my fourth month and my acne is getting out of control. ..After years of clear skin and no dermatologist visits, I am going back to my dermatologist because my face has been wrecked by horrible acne. I am 99% it is because of this birth control. Everyone is different, but from my experience, this has given me horrible acne. I am going to switch birth control according to what my dermatologist recommends.

I’m used to semi-regularly rotating BCP because my body tends to “get used” to the pills and my heavy periods power through and flow for days on end. With that being said, this pill has limited the length of periods, but not the flow. Additionally I act like a psycho – crying almost everyday, angry all the time, completely irrational and erratic behavior! My boobs have grown an entire cup size and are constantly tender. Never have experienced these side effects to this extent before. Hoping to be off this pill as per doctors orders within a week! Read More Read Less

On the Enskyce it made me feel weird on the first week and then when I started the first blue or whatever color pill it made me feel like I was being demon possed and it made me wanna hurt people, I was never like that and I would not recommend this product.

Do not take this medication. It has adverse side effects depending on the person, but is definitely not worth the risk. NOT A GOOD MEDICATION.

Enskyce Delivery Options, Uses, Warnings, and Side Effects

Enskyce Delivery Options, Uses, Warnings, and Side Effects – Nurx.com

Javascript must be enabled for the correct page display

Product details

Enskyce is a daily birth control pill that is meant to regulate hormones and menstruation symptoms while preventing pregnancy. The packet contains 21 active pills which you should start after your period ends, followed by seven inactive (or sugar) pills. This allows your body to continue its menstrual flow while you stay in the habit of taking a daily pill. In order to be effective, Enskyce should be taken every day at the same time.  Our team at Nurx™ can prescribe Enskyce at special request or can offer the generic equivalent Apri for as low as $0 with insurance or as little as $20 without insurance.

FAQ
  • How Does Enskyce Work?

    Enskyce uses two hormones, a progestin and an estrogen, to regulate your hormones. The birth control pill does this in three ways: it prevents ovulation, blocks sperm by building up your cervical mucus, and creates a thin uterine lining. In this last part, the thin lining prevents any fertilized eggs from latching to the wall of the uterus. A thinner lining also results in lighter periods and lessened cramps for many women.

  • Where Is Enskyce Available?

    Consult your doctor before you start Enskyce as you will need a prescription in order to take this birth control pill. Enskyce is readily found in most pharmacies, so you shouldn’t have a problem finding it.

    Most health insurance plans cover Enskyce; however, not all will. If this is the case for your coverage, our team at Nurx may be able to help. We offer affordable birth control options and generic alternatives to Enskyce.

    Our company can also help if you can’t locate Enskyce nearby. We ship to several states across the country, making birth control access easy.

  • What Precautions Should I Take Before Starting Enskyce?

    Talk to your doctor before starting Enskyce. Let them know about any allergies that you have or any medication that you are on. Your doctor will recommend a birth control option that works with your allergies so you don’t have a reaction.

    Telling your doctor about existing medication is particularly important because two medications can cancel each other out, increasing your chances of getting pregnant while also causing problems for other conditions you have. Your health and safety are the top priority.

  • Are There Any Known Side Effects?

    Everyone’s body reacts differently to different medications, and women who take Enskyce are no different. A few side effects of taking Enskyce include bloating, breast tenderness, swelling of the feet or ankles, spotting in between periods, and moodiness. These side effects are typically mild and will likely stop after a while.

    You may, however, notice more severe side effects while taking Enskyce. Seek medical help immediately if you experience a rapid heartbeat, trouble breathing, abdominal pain, sudden heavy bleeding, lumps in your breast, dizziness, confusion, and depression.

  • Does Enskyce Cause Weight Gain?

    Enskyce will not directly cause weight gain; however, some women may notice that they gain a few pounds when they start taking Enskyce. This may be the result of hormonal changes or temporary weight gain from water.

  • Does Enskyce Help With Acne?

    Enskyce has been know to improve acne as your hormones are better regulated while on the pill. However, it is not approved as a direct acne treatment.

  • What Else Should I Know About Taking Enskyce?

    Enskyce is not effective at preventing sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and diseases. These include infections like HIV and HPV. Use additional protection while having sex, including condoms, in order to prevent the spread of these diseases to you or your partner.

    Enskyce is also not made to terminate pregnancies. Stop taking Enskyce and see your doctor if you think you are pregnant. If you missed two days while taking Enskyce and then skipped a period, you may be pregnant.

Descriptions

Desogestrel and ethinyl estradiol combination is used to prevent pregnancy. It is a birth control pill that contains two types of hormones, desogestrel and ethinyl estradiol, and when taken properly, prevents pregnancy. It works by stopping a woman’s egg from fully developing each month. The egg can no longer accept a sperm and fertilization (pregnancy) is prevented.

No contraceptive method is 100 percent effective. Birth control methods such as having surgery to become sterile or not having sex are more effective than birth control pills. Discuss your options for birth control with your doctor.

This medicine does not prevent HIV infection or other sexually transmitted diseases. It will not help as emergency contraception, such as after unprotected sexual contact.

This medicine is available only with your doctor’s prescription.

enskyce side effects reviews esidrix

Reading these review makes me feel so much better because I really didn’t know what was wrong with me.Please dont drink this pill 2nd monthe drinking and had the worst experience. My skin is pretty normal for a 32 year old. The sex drive,what sex drive. Remember to always consult your physician or health care provider before starting, stopping, or altering a treatment or health care regimen.Every effort has been made to ensure that the information provided by on this page is accurate, up-to-date, and complete, but no guarantee is made to that effect. I hope this is the cure, because I already feel better.When i read these reviews, i brushed off the 1 star reviews. This information is for educational purposes only, and not meant to provide medical advice, treatment, or diagnosis. I have been having back pain, palpitation, anxiety (I had panic attack and went to the ER once, felt short of breath in public or in a car), stomach bloating, nausea, dizziness and high blood pressure you name it. This pill isn’t bad how other reviews mention, it all had to … I never trusted the pill before Enskyce, and now I don’t foresee myself going back to anything else.Been on this pill for a long time and I’ve never had any symptoms besides common mood swings before my period!Do not take this drug. I’ve never been negative. It is a terrible pill, i have never dealt with mood swings and depression as bad. I didnt listen to the people that said not to take it, which was a mistake. Haven’t had crazy breakouts since my early 20’s, so this shit is ridiculous!!! Terrible side effects, headaches, stomach cramps, bloating. i had never had any of these problems on apri.Horrible medication. When I say: DO NOT TAKE THESE. So I took the pill, and the pill for that day at 4pm, by 10pm I was feeling extremely nauseous again. Women who use oral contraceptives including Enskyce are strongly advised not to smoke. Also didn’t get pregnant, so five stars.The first night I took this birth control I projectile vomited all night long. Since being adjusted to it, I have had little to no issues besides your occasional bloating and headaches . I did some research and found out a lot of women that taking this medicine are having the same health issues. So in the mean time, I needed a BC. Acne 2. I was taking Apri and got switched to Enskyce. Dizziness 4. It gave me horrible mood swings, made me nauseous, and gave me some of the worst headaches. I also had no breakouts of acne. Everyday Health is among the federally registered trademarks of Everyday Health, Inc. and may not be used by third parties without explicit permission. And I’ve definitely gained weight.. oh, and the nausea!! I am 27 years old and have been taking this birth control for 9 years. puffiness or swelling of the eyelids or around the eyes, face, lips, or tongue. Cigarette smoking increases the risk of serious cardiovascular side effects from use of oral contraceptives such as Enskyce. It was horrible and I tried it again the next night to make sure it wasn’t something else and I did it again! Vomiting 7. Neither Everyday Health nor its licensor assume any responsibility for any aspect of healthcare administered with the aid of the information provided. I have two babys (planned) and the most it took me to get pregnant was 4months max. I don’t remember exactly when they switched me from Reclipsen to Enskyce and why. My GYN’s nurse put me on Enskyce, and I didn’t think the symptoms all the reviews talked about would happen to me but boy did they. Presently I have been on my period for 2 weeks. I was on and off Apri for roughly a year and a half and never had one bad symptom. My anxiety also came back in full force as well. I thought it was me being lazy and unmotivated and not this pill.

Birth Control Pills in the IVF Process

You may be surprised to find out that in many cases, the first step in the IVF process is to take birth control pills. Though this seems to be counter-productive to your goal of getting pregnant, there are several reasons why they are used.

Birth Control Pills and Ovulation

First, in a normal menstrual cycle multiple follicles (which contain the eggs) begin to grow, but then one follicle becomes dominant and grows faster than the rest and the remaining follicles stop progressing. In an IVF cycle though, we want as many follicles as possible to grow. By taking birth control pills before starting the oviarian stimulation medications, the follicles are more likely to grow at a similar rate. This leads to a greater number of follicles being mature at the same time, and therefore increases the number of eggs that are retrieved.

Using birth control pills also allows the fertility clinic to effectively schedule retrievals. This allows the correct number and type of staff to be available when needed. It also ensures that the embryology lab does not have too many retrievals in one day; the number of times incubator doors are opened in one day has to be controlled to maximize results in our embryology lab. This type of scheduling also gives us the ability to arrange your cycle so that it does not interfere with business trips or vacations.

Lastly, birth control pills can also decrease the chance of developing cysts prior to starting the stimulation medications. When cysts are present, sometimes we need to drain the fluid from them and that can cause a delay in your cycle.

Type of Birth Control Pills Used in IVF

Not just any birth control pill can be used in IVF. Birth control pills vary in the amount of hormones delivered with each pill. For the purposes of an IVF cycle, we use a monophasic type which contains the same amount of hormones in every active pill. Therefore, a consistent level of these hormones is maintained. The birth control pill that we prescribe is Desogen (or its generic substitute). If you prefer, a NuvaRing can be used instead. This is a flexible ring that is inserted vaginally and remains in place while releasing a continuous level of hormones.

How Birth Control Pills Fit Into the IVF Cycle

Here’s how taking birth control pills fits into the IVF process: To start an IVF cycle using birth control pills, you would call with Day 1 of full flow of your period, and then be scheduled to come in on Day 2, 3 or 4 for a baseline blood draw and ultrasound. If these results are normal, you would be instructed to start taking the birth control pills (or insert the NuvaRing) no later than day 5 of your cycle. One pill is taken each evening. The pills are arranged in four rows. The first three rows are active pills, but the fourth row does not contain any hormones. Therefore, if you finish the third row of pills, you would not take the fourth row but instead start a new pack of pills the next day. It is very important to take the Desogen at approximately the same time each evening, and not to skip any pills. If you are using a NuvaRing, you would remove the ring after 21 days and insert a new one.

In most IVF cycles, you must be on birth control for a minimum of 10 days before starting the next medication. You will be instructed when to stop the birth control at your nurse consult appointment. In most cases you will take it for about 21 days, but it can be up to 42 days. While using birth control, you may experience some light breakthrough bleeding. This spotting is normal and will not interfere with your cycle. Your physician will review your health history with you before prescribing any birth control products. If you have any risk factors such as a history of blood clots, birth control will not be used in your IVF cycle. Instead other medications will be used to prepare your ovaries for an optimal response.

So, when you are instructed to start birth control, just remember that you won’t be taking it to prevent pregnancy but rather to encourage it!

Is the pill killing your sex drive?

Like most medications, the birth control pill comes with a few side effects. Most of them are mild and similar to the symptoms you may have right before your period—like nausea, bloating, breast tenderness, and mood swings. Thankfully, these side effects often go away after a few months. But some pill users feel that the pill also causes them to lose interest in sex and that this doesn’t go away, or even gets worse, with extended use.

Decades of research do not support this claim. Studies on thousands of women suggest that most don’t notice a decrease in libido from using the pill, and the most recent research finds that relationship issues may be behind any post-pill dip in desire. After all, most people go on hormonal methods like the pill, patch, ring, or shot once they enter into a long-term monogamous relationship—and people in long-term monogamous relationships tend to have less sex than they did in their early days together.

Still, you are the only one who lives in your body and the only one who can possibly know if you feel different since you started using a hormonal birth control method—so always trust your instincts. If you think your birth control might be affecting your sex drive, here are a few things to consider before you decide to part ways with your method.

Research says it’s probably not the birth control

The idea that the pill causes libido to drop has been around for almost as long as the pill itself. Some coverage of the subject even offers a biological explanation based on the fact that the pill reduces the amount of testosterone women produce. (Yes, even though we think of testosterone as the male sex hormone, females make it too and it is instrumental in their sex drives as well.) The theory is that the decrease in testosterone, which is similar to what happens after menopause, causes a decrease in desire.

While this seems to make sense, the research doesn’t back up the idea of the pill as a crusher of sex drives. A review of 36 studies conducted between 1978 and 2011 found that only 15% of women felt lower libido when they went on the pill. Another 22% said they felt no change, and 62% actually said they felt an increase in sex drive since going on the pill.

The most recent research on this topic used a tool called the Sexual Desire Inventory on over 900 women and men in heterosexual relationships of various lengths. The tool questioned participants about both their desire for sex with their partner and their desire for masturbation when they were alone. The results initially suggested that women on non-hormonal contraceptives had higher desire on their own, while women on the pill had higher desire with their partner, but these correlations went away when the researchers adjusted for age of the women and length of their relationships.

The researchers say this suggests that the differences are more about relationships and less about birth control. Dr. Kristen Mark, the lead author on the study said in a statement: “Sometimes women are looking for something to explain changes in their sexual desire, which is not fixed throughout her life. The message that hormonal pills decrease desire is really prevalent….[But] our findings are clear: the pill doesn’t kill desire. This research helps to bust those myths and hopefully eventually get rid of this common cultural script in our society.”

But you may have to troubleshoot

If you’re taking hormonal birth control or thinking about starting, it should be reassuring to know that generations of women have road tested the pill and found that it is not a libido killer. Of course, if you are on a hormonal method now and finding yourself less interested in sex—or if you have a partner in that situation—mountains of research mean next to nothing. Luckily, we have some suggestions for troubleshooting—and hopefully getting your mojo back.

  1. Rethink your definition of desire. We often think of desire as a rousing in our loins that should come out of nowhere and be so urgent that we need to rip off our partner’s clothes. Right. This. Second. This kind of “spontaneous desire,” as researchers call it, does exist and can be great, but many people (women in particular) are more likely to experience “responsive desire,” a stirring of sexiness in reaction to something you see, hear, or experience. There is nothing wrong with responsive desire—it’s not a lesser type of desire—it just requires some, ahem, stimulus to get you going.

  2. Just do it. Next time you’re worrying about your libido, try forgetting about whether you’re turned on right this second. Start kissing your partner or watching a sexy movie and see what happens. We’re not suggesting doing anything you don’t want to do, and if a few minutes in you’re still not feeling it, stop. But you may find that responsive desire kicks in faster than you’d think.

  3. Talk to your partner. If you’re feeling less in the mood lately, it might be tempting to keep it to yourself so that you don’t hurt your partner’s feelings, but this isn’t the best idea. Find a gentle way to tell your partner you’re in a slump, and see if you can find a way out together. Think back to a time when sex was great and try to recreate the magic, or brainstorm new ideas. The conversation alone may be a turn-on.

  4. Consider medical issues. There are medications (such as anti-seizure meds and anti-depressants) that are known to cause a decrease in libido. Medical issues like diabetes, high blood pressure, and even high cholesterol can also interfere with sex drive. If you have any medical issues that you know about, or if it’s been awhile since your last check-up, make an appointment and talk to a health care provider about any possible culprits other than your birth control.

  5. Get in touch with your emotions. It can be hard to get in the mood if you’re overwhelmed with stress, secretly angry with your partner, or suffering from anxiety and/or depression. Self-esteem or body image issues can also play tricks on your desire. Do a mental health check and be honest with yourself about whether it could be time to see a therapist or counselor to talk about your lack of desire and any underlying issues that might be at play. You could also engage in some self-care by getting a massage, reading a good book, or going out for a night with friends.

  6. Don’t forget the simple things. Here’s an easy one: The pill can lead to vaginal dryness, which can in turn lead to pain during sex—and pain during sex can make more sex seem less appealing. Fortunately, if dryness is the issue, lube can help!

  7. Consider switching methods. The bottom line is that you know your body best. If you don’t like your birth control method for any reason, you should change it, regardless of what the research says. If your sex drive feels different to you, ask your health care provider first about switching to a different hormonal method or even just a different formulation of the pill, which can have a big impact on side effects. If that doesn’t help, a non-hormonal method may be the best option for you.

Birth control is important for anyone who doesn’t want to get pregnant, but it shouldn’t prevent pregnancy by killing your sex drive. You can find a perfect balance between method and libido—you may just have to troubleshoot a bit.

What to do if pills are missed

If a woman is less than 12 hours late in taking a pill, contraceptive protection is not reduced. She should take the pill as soon as she remembers, and then continue at the usual time.

If the delay in taking the pill is more than 12 hours, contraceptive protection may decrease. If you miss taking pills, you can follow two basic rules:

1.Tablet-taking should never be interrupted for more than 7 days.

2. To achieve adequate suppression of the hypothalamus-pituitary-ovarian axis, continuous pill intake is required for 7 days.

1 week

A woman should take the last missed pill as soon as she remembers it, even if she has to take 2 tablets.simultaneously. She then continues to take the pills at her usual time. In addition, a barrier method of contraception, such as using a condom, should be used for the next 7 days. If intercourse took place in the previous 7 days, the possibility of pregnancy should be considered. The more tablets are missed and the closer the time of the break, the higher the risk of pregnancy.

Week 2

A woman should take the last missed tablet as soon as she remembers it, even if she has to take 2 tablets.simultaneously. She then continues to take the pills at her usual time. If the woman took the pills correctly in the 7 days leading up to the first missed pill, there is no need to use additional contraception. Otherwise, or if she missed more than 1 table, additional precautions should be taken within 7 days.

Week 3

The risk of reduced reliability increases as the pill break approaches.However, if the pill regimen is followed, a decrease in contraceptive protection can be avoided. If you adhere to one of the following two options, then there will be no need to use additional measures to prevent pregnancy, provided that during the 7 days preceding the first missed pill, the woman took all the pills correctly. If this is not the case, then the woman should follow the first of the two options and take additional precautions for the next 7 days.

1. A woman should take the last missed tablet as soon as she remembers it, even if she has to take 2 tablets. simultaneously.

She then continues to take the pills at her usual time. The tablet from the next package should be taken immediately after the end of the used one, i.e. there should be no break in taking between tablets from different packages. It is unlikely that a woman will have a menstrual flow before she finishes taking the pills from the second pack, although she may experience spotting spotting or sudden heavy bleeding while taking the pills.

2. It is also possible for a woman to stop taking pills from the package she is using. In this case, the break is 7 days, including the days of missing pills; which is renewed from the next package.

If a woman missed a pill and did not have a menstrual flow during her first regular break, pregnancy should be considered.

Recommendations in case of vomiting

If vomiting is observed within 3-4 hours after taking the tablet, the drug may not be completely absorbed.In this case, see the recommendations for skipping the pill. If the woman does not want to change her usual drug regimen, she needs to take additional pill (s) from a different package.

How to change the time of the onset of menstruation or how to delay menstruation

To delay the onset of menstruation, a woman should continue taking Mercilon ® from a new package without interruption. If desired, the period of admission can be extended until the end of taking the pills from the second package.In this case, there may be sudden heavy bleeding or spotting spotting. Regular use of Mercilon ® is resumed after the usual 7-day pill break.
