Amethyst Medical Information
What is Amethyst?
Amethyst (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) is a combination medication that provides female hormones (progestin and estrogen) to prevent pregnancy. Amethyst prevents ovulation (the releasing of an egg by an ovary), alters the cervical mucus so sperm can’t reach the uterus and fertilize an egg as easily, and alters the uterine lining so an egg can’t attach to the uturus as easily.
Amethyst should be taken exactly as directed. Take one white tablet daily, at around the same time, and do not allow intervals between tablets exceed 24 hours. One course of Amethia contains 28 white tablets. Use of Amethia may begin with either a Sunday start (the first Sunday following menstruation) or a Day 1 start (the day menstruation starts). If your period begins on Sunday, you should take the first tablet that day. For each course, without interruption, take one white tablet daily for 28 days. When all 28 tablets have been taken, begin a new course the next day by taking the first tablet from a new course, regardless of whether or not your period occurs.
