Safyral is a birth control pill. It contains two female hormones, a synthetic estrogen called ethinyl estradiol and a progestin called drospirenone. It works mainly by preventing the release of an egg during your menstrual cycle. It also makes vaginal fluid thicker to help prevent sperm from reaching an egg and changes the lining of the uterus to prevent attachment of a fertilized egg. This product also contains a folate supplement (such as l-methylfolate, levomefolate) which is a B-vitamin that women of childbearing age use to help prevent spinal cord defects in an unborn baby. The folate supplement in this medication, along with a diet rich in folate, lowers this risk if you become pregnant while taking this drug. Besides preventing pregnancy, birth control pills may make your periods more regular, and may decrease blood loss, painful periods, and the risk of ovarian cysts. Using this medication does not protect you or your partner against sexually transmitted diseases. The better you follow the directions, the less chance you have of getting pregnant. Be sure to read these directions before you start taking your pills or anytime you are not sure what to do. The right way to take the pill is to take one pill by mouth every day with or without food at the same time in the order directed on the package. Preferably, take the pill after the evening meal or at bedtime, with some liquid, as needed. Taking this medication after your evening meal or at bedtime may help decrease stomach upset and nausea.
