From only $13.10 per month


Aviane is a contraceptive pill that, when used correctly, is more than 99% effective at preventing pregnancy. It’s classed as a “combined pill,” which means it combines the hormones estrogen and progestin. (Mini pills, on the other hand, only have progestin.) Like all combined pills, Aviane must be taken daily, at the same time each day, for it to work at its best.

That’s where we come in. With EveAdam, you can buy Aviane online and have it shipped to you as often as you’d like, so you never run out of your medication. No prescription? No problem. That’s all part of our service. Your needs and medical history are assessed by a licensed doctor who will recommend a birth control pill based on your consultation. Then, it’s off to our preferred online pharmacy GoGoMeds to be filled and shipped to you. No phone calls, no pharmacy lines — just birth control delivered in 2-5 working days.

What is Aviane generic for?

Lutera, Larissia, Lessina, Orsythia, Sronyx, Vienva, Aubra EQ and the now-discontinued Alesse are all continuous pills and contain the same hormones, in the same amounts, as Aviane. (That’s levonorgestrel and ethinyl estradiol, and 0.1mg and 0.02mg, if you want to get specific). So Aviane should work in exactly the same way as these pills, and have the same effect on controlling menstrual symptoms.

The main difference is that Aviane is made by Teva, and the others are made by various other manufacturers. So as well as the name, the packaging is likely to be different and the pill itself may have a different appearance.

Is there more than one Aviane dosage?

No. There is only one Aviane strength available. Portia and Levora are similar to Aviane but carry a slightly higher dose.

Can you take Aviane for acne

Some birth control pills can help control acne in addition to preventing pregnancy. Aviane can sometimes reduce acne, but there are other pills that are more effective at controlling severe acne.[1] If you are looking for a pill that can help you get particular menstrual symptoms under control, you’ll have the option to specify which during your confidential online consultation.

How can I get Aviane by subscription?

Take our online consultation to get started, and a doctor will assess your health and medical profile. They’ll recommend suitable combined pills for you, or suggest other types of birth control if they think there’s a specific type that will work better for you. You can then select your preferred option from their suggestions, and have your treatment shipped to you from a US pharmacy regularly, so you’ll never need to worry about running out of birth control.

What is Aviane?

Aviane is a combined birth control pill. This means it contains two versions of female hormones that the body produces naturally. Taking it causes certain things to change in the body.

For example, ovulation might not happen, meaning an egg will not be released. On the off-chance ovulation does occur, vaginal mucus also thickens which can block sperm from reaching an egg. Finally, conditions in the uterus will change while you take Aviane. This means eggs which do become fertilised will not be able to implant themselves and grow.

How to take Aviane

Read the package insert carefully before you take Aviane.

Aviane has 21 orange pills with hormones and seven hormone-free light green pills. You’ll take one orange pill daily for three weeks and then one light green pill daily for one week. After you’ve finished all 28 pills, you’ll start a new pack.

The light green pills in Aviane are inactive, meaning they don’t contain any hormones. You’ll take them during the week you’ll have your period. The reason hormone-free pills are included in your pack is so you can get into the routine of taking one pill every day, making it easier to remember.

Does Aviane have any other health benefits?

What are the most common effects of Aviane

A lot of the time with the pill, side effects may occur during the first few weeks of use, but go away by themselves after a short time. This is the period where your body adjusts to the new pill. But if you get side effects that are bothersome or persist, you should let a doctor know.

More common side effects associated with Aviane include nausea, feeling sick, headaches, stomach cramps, bloating, dizziness, vaginal irritation or itching, vaginal and nipple discharge, tender or swollen breasts, freckles or darker facial skin, hair growth, hair loss, weight or appetite changes, contact lens problems (particularly with their application) and loss of libido.[2]

When you should see a doctor

Are there alternatives to Aviane?

Yes. Aviane contains levonorgestrel and ethinyl estradiol, two synthetic versions of the hormones estrogen and progesterone. There are numerous other birth control pills that contain the same ingredients, including Lutera, Alesse, Delyla, Falmina, Larissia, Lessina, Orsythia, Stronyx, Vieva, Evaluna 20, Anulette 20, Prionelle, Leonore, Microlite and Aubra EQ. These pills work in similar ways and have similar side effects and contraindications.

There are many other pills with slightly different formulations, which may be good options if you currently take Aviane but want to try something else. Different birth control methods containing different active ingredients can impact women in different ways. Sometimes, it’s a case of finding what’s right for you.
