prevents pregnancy. Many medications, including some antibiotics and supplements, can cause Portia to not work. Ask your pharmacist or doctor before taking any other medications.
Portia is a prescription birth control medication used to prevent pregnancy. Portia contains two hormones, levonorgestrel and ethinyl estradiol, which belong to a group of drugs called hormonal contraceptives. These hormones prevent pregnancy by stopping ovulation and by altering cervical mucus and the lining of the uterus to prevent sperm from entering.
This medication comes in tablet form and is taken once daily, with or without food.
Common side effects of Portia include nausea, breast tenderness, and vaginal bleeding between menstrual periods.
