Ocella is a prescription drug contraceptive used to prevent pregnancy. Containing drospirenone, a synthetic progestin, this birth control is regarded as a “fourth generation drug”.
In addition to preventing pregnancy, the drug has also been known to treat minor cases of acne, as well as controlling some of the symptoms associated with premenstrual disorders.
With similar ingredients as Yaz and Yasmin (ethinyl estradiol and drospirenone), Ocella has become rather popular in the birth control industry within the last several years. Following FDA warnings indicating misleading advertisements that stated insufficient facts about the pill’s side effects, more and more women each day are reporting adverse side effects.
Ocella has been acknowledged by the FDA as a birth control that can cause damaging consequences to those women taking the pill. While the severity of complications range, women who have used Ocella may experience unexpected results that studies have traced back to the pill.
