About Product

What is Qlaira?

Qlaira is an effective and reliable combined contraceptive pill. The use of Qlaira also makes periods lighter and reduces prolonged bleeding problems in women. When used correctly, the contraceptive pill is more than 99% effective at preventing unwanted pregnancy.

Women taking Qlaira have found that the tablet helps reduce the likelihood of suffering from problems such as ectopic pregnancy, ovarian cyst, pelvic inflammation and cancer of ovaries and uterus.

With Prescription Doctor, you can get a private prescription for Qlaira online and have the medicine delivered straight to your door. Simply complete our online questionnaire and our doctor will determine whether the treatment is suitable for you. If it is, a prescription can be issued for our UK based GPhC registered pharmacy to fulfil.

If our doctor approves your order before 3pm, our pharmacy will dispatch your item the same day intended for a next-day discreet delivery, giving you peace of mind that your item arrives quickly and privately.


How does Qlaira work?

Qlaira is a hormonal contraceptive and works by interfering with the natural menstrual cycle to prevent pregnancy. Qlaira has two active ingredients; oestradiol valerate and dienogest, which are analogues of naturally occurring female sex hormones oestrogen and progesterone respectively.

The active ingredients found in Qlaira are different from other synthetic hormones used in other hormonal contraceptive pills. The active ingredients break down in the body into an identical version of natural hormones produced by the body, instead of synthetic analogues like other pills.

Qlaira works by altering the levels of the hormones during the menstrual cycle. By doing this, they can prevent the ovaries from releasing an egg (ovulation) to be fertilised by sperm.

Additionally, Qlaira also protects you from pregnancy by thickening the mucus at the cervical opening, making it difficult for sperm to penetrate the mucus lining and enter the womb to fertilise the egg. It also changes the lining of the uterus making it difficult for implantation of a fertilised egg.

Together, the effects of Qlaira reduce the chances of becoming pregnant and help to regulate the menstrual cycle.


How to take Qlaira?

Each strip of Qlaira has 28 tablets, 26 of which are active while 2 are inactive. These inactive tablets are white and do not contain any of the active ingredients.

You should take one tablet each day until all the 28 tablets are finished. Once the 28 tablets strip is empty, immediately start a new pill strip the very next day.

Qlaira does not fall among those hormonal pills that are supposed to have a break of seven days between strips.

Qlaira comes in blister packs marked with the days of the week. When you take your first pill, mark it with the name of the day you took the first pill - this will remind you to take Qlaira every day.

If you are unsure how to take Qlaira, speak to your doctor. Instructions on how to take Qlaira can also be found in the patient information leaflet enclosed with your medicine.

Frequently asked questions

What should I do if I forget to take Qlaira?

If you forget to take Qlaira pill, you should take it as soon as you remember, even if you have to take two tablets per day. If the time is less than 12 hours, despite the regular time on which you should take the pill, there is no need to worry. You are still protected against pregnancy.

However, if you are more than 12 hours late, the protection against the conception of pregnancy can be reduced. In such a case, an additional contraceptive method should be adopted to avoid unwanted pregnancy.

If you have missed an inactive pill, then there is no need to worry about it as it does not affect the contraceptive ability of the medicine.

What should I do if I take too much Qlaira ?

There are no side effects reported with increased intake of Qlaira. But If you feel any serious problem, call your doctor or hospital for advice.

Will Qlaira affect my ability to drive or operate machines?

Dizziness is a side effect associated with Qlaira. If you experience dizziness after taking Qlaira, do not drive or operate machinery until you feel you are well enough to do so.

Can I Drink Alcohol while taking Qlaira?

While alcohol is unlikely to impact the efficacy of Qlaira, excessive alcohol consumption could exacerbate side effects or cause you to vomit, which may reduce the effectiveness of the pill.

Always drink responsibly while taking Qlaira.

Does Qlaira cause weight gain?

Qlaira may cause weight gain or water retention as a side effect. If you are concerned about any side effects associated with Qlaira, speak to your doctor or a pharmacist for advice.
