Description of Azurette
Azurette is a combination medicine that uses synthesized forms of an estrogen and a progestin. You can buy Azurette as a birth control method or, in some cases, to treat the disease of ovaries with cysts.
Azurette prevents pregnancy by preventing ovulation, which stops the release of eggs. It also changes the mucus that lines the cervix, which prevents sperm from reaching the uterus. Azurette also performs a third action by making the uterine lining unfit for a fertilized egg to latch on to. Your doctor may prescribe Azurette for other medical conditions as well.
Indications & Dosage of Azurette
Azurette is indicated for preventing pregnancy and also in regulating periods, reducing blood loss and treating painful periods, which is a condition known as dysmenorrhea. It is also indicated for reducing the risk of ovarian cysts.
If you buy Azurette on your doctor’s orders, you should follow only the specified dosage of this drug. Regardless of whether you have bought Azurette as a prescribed medicine or over-the-counter drug, you must read the patient information leaflet that comes along with the package beforehand. If you have any doubts related to the procedure, you may consult your doctor.
Each pack of Azurette contains 21 pills that contain the active synthetic hormones. There may also be 7 reminder pills that contain none of the hormones. It is important that you take each tablet as recommended by the manufacturer or prescribed by the doctor. This is because the amount of progestin and estrogen in the body and in each tablet changes according to different segments of the menstrual cycle. You may choose a time of day when you can take the pill, and continue taking one pill each day at around the same time.
