What is Katya?
Katya is a contraceptive pill that works on the basis of two different hormones (ethinyl estradiol and gestodene). This contraceptive belongs to the group of so-called combination pills. The active substances in Katya inhibit the ovulation and change the composition of the lining of the uterus and cervix. This way, pregnancy is prevented. You can order Katya online through the pharmacies working with Dokteronline.com.
What is this medication used for?
Katya is a contraceptive and is thus used to prevent pregnancy. Because of this pill, there is no real menstrual bleeding but a mild withdrawal bleeding, this makes it also suitable to help in case of menstrual symptoms.
How to use Katya?
The collaborating pharmacies offer Katya online in packs of 1, 3 or 6 strips of 21 pills. Take one tablet each day around the same time. It does not matter whether the pill is taken with or without food. When the strip is empty, follow with a stop week: do not take the pill for seven days. During this stop week the withdrawal bleeding will start. On the eighth day you start with a new strip.
Katya is a very reliable contraceptive pill as long as you do not forget to take it. If you do forget it, or if you vomit or suffer from watery diarrhea, the protection from pregnancy can be reduced. You will find explanations on how to act in these cases in the leaflet. You can also consult a doctor or pharmacist.
The dosage of Katya is as follows:
- Adult women: take a pill once a day around the same time, followed by a stop week.
Read the instructions before use.
Like other birth control pills, Katya can sometimes cause side effects including:
- Strained or painful breasts;
- Breakthrough bleeding;
- Gastro-intestinal problems (nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain);
These (or other) side effects may occur especially in the beginning. After a few weeks, when the body has become accustomed to the hormones, the symptoms disappear. If this is not the case or if you suffer from severe or serious adverse reactions (see package insert), please consult a doctor. You will find a complete list of possible side effects in the leaflet.
When is it best not to use this medication?
Katya is not a suitable contraceptive pill for everyone. Do not take Katya if you:
- are oversensitive to ethinylestradiol, gestodene, or any of the excipients used;
