Qlaira FAQs

What are the benefits of Qlaira?

The most obvious benefit of the Qlaira pill is the fact that it is almost 100% effective at preventing pregnancy, if it is taken correctly. Other benefits include the ability to reduce the flow of heavy periods and also to make them less painful.

This birth control method is a 28-day pill treatment, which means it is designed to mimic the changing hormone levels of your natural menstrual cycle as closely as possible. This is beneficial because it means you are less likely to experience adverse side effects than with other oral contraceptives.

How does it work?

The hormones in combined oral contraceptives such as the Qlaira pill alter the environment of the reproductive system to make it almost impossible for conception to occur. The first way this is achieved is by the hormones tricking the body in to thinking that ovulation has already occurred, meaning an egg is not released from the ovaries. In addition, the cervical mucous is made thicker so the sperm cannot travel to the uterus. Lastly the womb lining is made thinner, meaning that, were an egg to be released and fertilised, it would not be able to attach itself to the uterus wall to grow.

Who can and can't take Qlaira?

The Qlaira pill is a very safe contraceptive for the majority of women over 18. However, it will not be suitable for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, or smokers over the age of 35. This is also the case for those with circulatory, heart or liver problems; high blood pressure; high cholesterol; diabetes or a history of migraines.

This medication should not be taken in conjunction with certain other medications, including certain antibiotics sedatives and medications used to treat epilepsy. St John's Wort, griseofulvin and phenylbutazone are incompatible with this contraceptive. If you choose to buy this contraception online, we will use your online consultation to determine your suitability for the medication.

How do you take it?

A pack of Qlaira contains 28 pills, meaning one pill should be taken every day, with no breaks at all. You will find four different types of active tablets that contain different doses of hormones:

  • Two dark yellow tablets (3mg estradiol)
  • Five light red tablets (2mg estradiol and 2mg dienogest)
  • 17 light yellow tablets (2mg estradiol and 2mg dienogest)
  • Two dark red tablets (1mg estradiol)
  • Two white pills (inactive - no hormones)

The different pills means that it is very important that you take every pill in the pack in the exact order as directed, starting with the first pill on day one of your period. You will find that self-adhesive strips are supplied with every pack of Qlaira to help you to remember the order in which to take the tablets.

Though the two white pills do not contain any active ingredients, it is still important to take them as scheduled. This is to ensure that you remember to take each pill regularly. You will still be protected against pregnancy while you take these two pills.

Are there any side effects?

Experiencing side effects while taking the Qlaira pill is rare, though it is always a possibility. Mild side effects can include nausea, acne, headaches, abdominal pain, irregular periods, breast or nipple pain, bloating and weight gain. More serious side effects, which are even more rare, can include back pain, constipation, liver problems, excessive hair growth and blood clots.

If any side effect particularly concerns you, or you experience a severe reaction, you should contact a qualified healthcare practitioner.
