Katya

Katya is a contraceptive pill that uses two different hormones (ethinyl estradiol and gestodene), and as such is what is known as a combined contraceptive pill. The active substances in Katya inhibit ovulation and change the composition of the lining of the uterus and cervix, thus preventing pregnancy.

What is this medication used for?

Katya is a contraceptive and is thus used to prevent pregnancy. Because of this combined contraceptive pill, there is no real menstrual bleeding but a mild withdrawal bleeding, which makes it also suitable to combat menstrual symptoms.

How to use Katya?

The collaborating pharmacies offer the Katya contraceptive pill online in packs of one, three or six strips of 21 pills. Take one Katya contraceptive pill each day at 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 week off where you do not take the Katya contraceptive pill for seven days. During this stop week, a withdrawal bleeding will start. On the eighth day, 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 diarrhoea, the protection from pregnancy may be reduced. You will find explanations on what to do in these cases in the leaflet. You can also consult a doctor or pharmacist.

Dosage

The dosage for adult women is to take one Katya contraceptive pill once a day around the same time for 21 days, followed by a stop week. Read the instructions before use.

Side effects

Like other birth control pills, the Katya combined contraceptive pill can sometimes cause side effects, including strained or painful breasts, breakthrough bleeding, gastro-intestinal problems (nausea, vomiting or abdominal pain) and headaches. 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 tend to 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 the Katya combined contraceptive pill if you:

  • Are oversensitive to ethinylestradiol, gestodene, or any of the excipients used;
  • Suffer (or have suffered) from thrombosis, a blood clotting disorder, a stroke or a myocardial infarction;
  • Suffer (or have suffered) from a liver disease or certain cancers;
  • Suffer vaginal bleeding of unknown cause.

If you suffer from another condition, present risk factors (see package insert) or are taking other medications, please consult a doctor before you start using the Katya contraceptive pill. You can read more about the contraindications and other warnings in the leaflet.

Pregnancy / driving / alcohol

The Katya contraceptive pill should not be used during pregnancy. Do not use this contraceptive pill if you are breastfeeding – your doctor may prescribe a different oral contraceptive in that case.

Katya does not affect your ability to drive. There is no warning against the consumption of alcohol with this contraceptive pill.
