Brevicon 21 day is a combination hormone medication used to prevent pregnancy. It contains 2 hormones: progestin and estrogen.

Besides preventing pregnancy, birth control pills like Brevicon may have additional benefits, such as making periods more regular, decreasing blood loss and painful periods, decreasing the risk of ovarian cysts, and treating acne.

Brevicon does not protect against sexually transmitted diseases (such as HIV, gonorrhea, and chlamydia). 


  • Before starting Brevicon and with every refill, carefully read the patient information leaflet provided by your healthcare provider.
  • Take Brevicon exactly as prescribed by your healthcare provider, usually once a day at the same time. This ensures consistent hormone levels for birth control effectiveness.
  • Follow the pack instructions. The pills in a Brevicon pack have a specific order. Follow the instructions to find the first tablet, start with it, and take them in the correct sequence. Don't skip doses.
  • If you experience stomach upset or nausea, taking Brevicon after dinner or before bed might help.
  • Regardless of the chosen time, take Brevicon at the same time each day, 24 hours apart.


  • Don't rely solely on Brevicon if you vomit or have diarrhea. These can affect Brevicon's effectiveness. Use a backup birth control method (like condoms) during such instances.
  • Don't stop abruptly. Taking Brevicon for a shorter or longer duration than prescribed can decrease its effectiveness.
  • Don't share Brevicon. This medication is meant for you and may not be suitable for others.
