Qlaira can be taken by sexually active women as a contraceptive to prevent pregnancy. Women who have heavy periods can also take it control their symptoms.
Don’t take Qlaira if you are pregnant. If you become pregnant while taking it, you should stop straight away. You also shouldn’t take Qlaira if you are breastfeeding, as the combined pill shouldn’t be taken until your baby is weaned or at least six months old.
If you are less than 12 hours late taking a Qlaira pill, take it as soon as you remember and continue to take it at your usual time every day. You will still be protected against pregnancy. If you miss more than one pill, ask your doctor for advice.
If you are more than 12 hours late taking an active pill, you may not be protected against pregnancy. Take the missed pill as soon as you remember (even if you have to take two pills in one day) and carry on taking your pills as normal.
If you forget to start a new pack of pills, or forget a pill on days 1 to 9, use extra contraception such as condoms for the next nine days and carry on taking the pills as normal. If you have had unprotected sex in the seven days before you missed a pill you could be pregnant, and you need to speak to your doctor.
If you miss a pill on days 10 to 17 of the packet, you’ll need to use another form of contraception, like condoms, for the next nine days, and carry on with the rest of the pack as normal.
If you miss a pill from days 18 to 24 of the packet, start a new packet straight away with the first pill, and discard the old pack. You’ll also need to use another form of contraception such as condoms for the next nine days.
If you miss a pill on day 25 to 26, take the missed pill immediately and the next pill at your normal time. You don’t need to use any extra contraception.
If you forget to take one of the white inactive pills you will still be protected. Just discard the missed pill and carry on with the rest of the pack and the next pack as normal.
If you miss several tablets or are erratic taking your Qlaira pill, you may be at risk of pregnancy. Speak to your doctor or nurse to see if there is a more suitable method of contraception for you.
If you are sick within three or four hours of taking a pill, take another pill as soon as you feel well enough, within 12 hours of the normal time you would have taken it. Take the next one at your normal time. If you carry on being sick, or you were more than 12 hours late taking the next pill, ask your doctor for advice.
If you have very severe diarrhoea which lasts for over 24 hours, keep taking your pill at your normal time, but follow the instructions for missing a pill.
For further information and detail, read the patient information leaflet that comes with the medicine.
You should always tell your doctor if you are taking any other medicines, including over the counter and herbal medicines, before you start taking Qlaira. Also make sure that any new medicines are safe to use while using Qlaira.
Always follow the directions given to you by your healthcare professional. Each pack contains 28 pills. There are five different types of pill, four types which contain a balance of hormones and one which contains no active ingredients.
Qlaira pills are numbered to make it easy to see that you have taken the right pill, and there are also helpful stick on strips in each pack to tell you on which day of the week you should take which pill. The last two tablets in each pack are inactive.
It doesn’t matter what time of day you take Qlaira but it’s best to take it at around the same time every day. You can take them with or without food.
The active ingredients in Qlaira tablets are estradiol and dienogest at varying strengths.
Tablet core: lactose monohydrate, maize starch, pregelatinised maize starch, povidone K25 (E1201), magnesium stearate (E572)
Tablet film-coating: hypromellose type 2910 (E464), macrogol 6000, talc (E553b), titanium dioxide (E171), iron oxide yellow (E172) and/or iron oxide red (E172)

If you notice these, or any other side effects, especially if they are severe or persistent, take advice from your doctor. For a full list of side effects, please look at your patient leaflet included with your medication.
The following common side effects have been linked with Qlaira:
You may experience irregular periods, spotting, and breakthrough bleeding when you first start taking Qlaira. If you don't have a withdrawal bleed for two months in a row, take a pregnancy test before you start the next pack.
Women taking the combined contraceptive pill are at a slightly higher risk of developing a blood clot in a vein, the lungs, or an artery, which can lead to a stroke or a heart attack. The risk is higher for smokers and women who are obese.
Stop taking Qlaira and contact your doctor straight away if you notice any of the following:
This is the first time I have used this service. Website was easy to navigate and online questions very clear. prompt response and delivery of malaria tablets.
I cannot believe how easy it was to order, pay and then receive the goods. They kept me informed throughout. I wish all companies were this easy to deal with
I have been prescribed the same medication for over 4 years, yet I still have the hassle of taking valued time off work to visit my GP/local pharmacy for repeat prescriptions. This tedious exercise costs me a half day's annual leave for little more than a blood pressure reading and ironically, I own my own electronic blood pressure meter! DrEd.com - inexpensive, well packaged and prompt delivery.
Placed order one day delivered the next in discrete packaging, treatment worked as directed. Would use again and reccomed
A very good service very helpful with all my needs i would tell all my friends if they needed help
