The combination of ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel contained in Alesse is used
to prevent ovulation. In addition to inhibiting ovulation, Alesse will alter the
composition of cervical mucus to hinder sperm from reaching the uterus. As a final
recourse, it will also alter the lining of the uterus to obstruct fertilized eggs
from attaching to the lining. Because of the hormones within this drug, it may also
help regulate menstrual cycles or lessen the effects of some menopausal symptoms.
When taken as directed, oral contraception has been found to be 99 percent effective.
Alesse may be effective for its intended purpose, but there may be mild or severe
side effects as a result of taking it. Some of the more mild potential side effects
may include nausea, vomiting, bloating, breast tenderness, changes in weight, headache,
dizziness, fatigue, or vaginal discharge. It is not uncommon to experience breakthrough
bleeding, especially during the first few months of taking Alesse. Serious side
effects will require immediate medical attention and may include confusion, sudden
or severe headache, chest pain, jaundice, or sudden numbness. Oral contraceptives
should not be taken when pregnant. Smoking while taking this drug may increase the
risk of severe side effects, like stroke or cardiac arrest. Requests made to buy Alesse online from a pharmacy in Canada or another rx drug will require
