Drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol prevent ovulation (the release of an egg from an ovary) and also cause changes in your cervical and uterine lining, making it harder for sperm to reach the uterus and harder for a fertilized egg to attach to the uterus. The combination of drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol is used as contraception to prevent pregnancy. It is also used to treat moderate acne in women who are at least 14 years old and have started having menstrual periods, and who wish to use birth control pills to prevent pregnancy. This medication is also used to treat the symptoms of premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), such as anxiety, depression, irritability, trouble concentrating, lack of energy, sleep or appetite changes, breast tenderness, joint or muscle pain, headache, and weight gain. Drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.
Vestura is a type of drug that is able to prevent the release of an egg from the ovaries in females, otherwise known as ovulation. Vestura also causes changes in the uterine and cervical lining, which makes it more difficult for sperm to enter the uterus, and more difficult for a fertilized egg to implant itself to the uterus.
