Combined estrogen-progestin oral contraceptive Alesse is manufactured by the American pharmaceutical company Pfizer. It is widely known in many countries worldwide and is used to prevent pregnancy in women of reproductive age.
When buying Alesse, you can be sure that you will get the right birth control method, which suits your lifestyle the best. When used properly, Alesse guarantees protection from pregnancy with an efficiency close to 100%.
Alesse is supplied by Pfizer in the form of oral tablets. Birth-control tablets are supplied in a blister pack in a cardboard box. The number of tablets may differ:
• 21 pink tablets
• 21 pink tablets
• 7 light-green tablets
Pink Alesse tablets contain a small amount of synthetic variants of female hormones. These pills are the ones that alter the normal functioning of a woman’s fertility cycle, so that pregnancy cannot begin.
Light-green tablets do not contain active substances and do not have any therapeutic effects. Inert pills are necessary to help women get used to taking pills every day and not to miss the next dose of hormones.
If you want to buy Alesse pills, and they are not available in the city pharmacies, perhaps, similar birth control pills by Pfizer are sold under the trademark Loette.
Alesse and Loette pills contain the same doses of Levonorgestrel / Ethinyl Estradiol, are manufactured by the same company, yet are sold in different countries.

Alesse is an effective, reliable and safe method of hormonal contraception. Follow all directions and recommendations of your pharmacist or doctor to ensure that contraceptive protection provided by Alesse was continuous.
Regular doses should be used continuously. If you order Alesse in an online pharmacy, place an order in advance, so that the new package is delivered before you finish the previous pack.

- Finish Alesse 28 pack and do not take breaks.
- Finish Alesse 21 pack and make a 7-day break.
- Start a new pack after a break of 7 days or after 28-day regimen.
Keep these tips in mind to use Alesse tablets correctly:
- Choose a convenient time to use Alesse always at the same time every day.
- Take Alesse with food to minimize the risks of nausea.
- Do not forget to take inert tablets to start a new pack in time.
- Set a reminder on your phone to remember to use the dose.
- Know what to do if you miss an Alesse pill.
If you accidentally missed a pink pill (not a light-green pill), you might need additional precautions for contraception. If you have vomiting or diarrhea, the hormonal contraceptive may not work, as well.
You need to consult a pharmacist or physician, when changing from:
- Progestogen-only pill.
- Injectable contraceptive.
Alesse is used immediately after discontinuation of other contraception methods, yet it does not always ensure high efficacy. Therefore, you may need to use a condom or another barrier contraception method (for a week).
Before Alesse became available for sale and women began using it, it was evaluated for safety. Clinical trials have shown that Alesse usually does not cause serious adverse reactions, including in an overdose.
Before you start using Alesse 100/20 tablets or its generics, read the leaflet and learn about possible adverse reactions. Some of possible body’s reactions to an increase in hormone levels are:
Increase or decrease in weight
Decreased sexual desire
Headache, including migraine
If you took too much Alesse or notice any side effect even with the correct dosing, call and consult a doctor. Some side effects (e.g., shortness of breath as a symptom of thrombosis) can be very serious, though may not seem serious at first glance.
Smoking increases the risk of serious vascular and cardiac adverse reactions. This risk increases with the number of cigarettes smoked and is especially noticeable in women of 35 years of age and older.
Before you buy Alesse 100/20 pills or its generics, tell your doctor if you smoke or if you have:
Overweight or obesity.
Inflammation of blood vessels.
Heart valve disorder.
Heart rhythm disorder.
A history of thrombosis, heart attack or stroke.
Prediabetes or diabetes.
High blood pressure.
Diseases of the liver, kidneys or gallbladder.
Some of the above conditions, especially a combination thereof, may present contraindications to combined hormonal contraception. Therefore, you should inform your doctor about any hereditary or acquired diseases.

If you are taking or have recently taken any medications or herbal products, inform the pharmacist or doctor. Some commonly used drugs can affect the effectiveness of pills.
The following medications have a potential for interacting with Alesse:
Hypnotics and sedatives
• Chloral Hydrate
Enlisted and some other medications interact with synthetic hormones, and can:
- Become the cause of side effects.
- Interfere with or stop the action of Alesse.
In many cases, it will be possible to avoid negative interaction, if contraceptives and other drugs are administered at different times. In some cases, it is required to stop taking medications or find another contraception method.
If you are looking for a reliable, effective, reversible, coitally independent contraceptive method, you can buy Alesse. Combined oral contraceptive protects against pregnancy with minimal risks of side effects.
