Katya

Katya is a prescription medication known as an oral contraceptive, of which there are dozens of variations. Also known as “The Pill”, oral contraceptives belong to the family of contraceptives known as hormonal contraceptives, as they manipulate the body’s hormones to prevent pregnancy. Katya is called a combined pill as it contains both an oestrogen and a progesterone hormone. The Pill is one of the most reliable forms of reversible protection, and doesn’t interrupt sex, making it one of the most popular types of contraception. As it alters your hormones to have its effect, there may be some side effects in the form of mood swings. However, it has the advantage that it can be stopped immediately if the side effects are too much.

If you know Katya is right for you, you can buy it online safely from a UK doctor such as Doctor-4-U by completing our simple medical questionnaire and getting a certified prescription.

Prices start from £19.99 for 1 months supply

  • You should take ONE tablet at the same time each day for 21 days, followed by 7 days of not taking any tablets before repeating the cycle. However, if you take a hormonal contraceptive that is designed to be taken every day (also known as an "ED" pill), you should not take a 7 day break after day 21.
  • Always take your tablet at the same time each day
  • If you miss a dose or take your tablet later than you should, read the patient information leaflet or speak to a GP or pharmacist for advice, as you may not be protected against pregnancy.
  • If you experience vomiting or severe diarrhoea, this medication may not work effectively. Because of this, it's recommended that you use condoms or other barrier methods for 7 days after you've experienced illnesses like these.

Buy Katya online

Katya is one of many types of oral contraceptive. It contains two hormones, an oestrogen hormone and a progestogen hormone which work together to stop you getting pregnant. When taken correctly, Katya is a highly effective form of contraception. Katya is a type of 21-day pill, meaning you take one pill a day for 21 days then have a 7-day break before starting the next pack.

You need a prescription from a GMC/EU certified doctor in order to buy this medication online. To buy Katya from Doctor-4-U, simply complete our online consultation and if you are deemed suitable, we will dispatch your medication usually within 24 hours.

How does Katya work?

Katya contains two active ingredients. The first of these is ethinylestradiol, a synthetic version of a naturally occurring oestrogen hormone, and the second is gestodene, a type of progestogen hormone. These work in together to stop an egg being released into the ovaries and then fertilised.

As Katya does not help protect against sexually transmitted infections (STIs), you should also use a condom for to ensure safer sex, and you should take an STI test every time you have a new sexual partner.

Who is Katya suitable for?

Although Katya is designed for women over the age of puberty and before the age of menopause who want to prevent pregnancy, your medical history may mean it isn’t right for you.

You should not take Katya if:

  • You are allergic to ethinylestradiol, gestodene, or any of the other ingredients listed in the patient information leaflet
  • You are pregnant or breast-feeding
  • You or your family have a history of blood clots
  • You have had angina, a heart attack or a stroke
  • You have had breast cancer, or cancer of the genital organs
  • You have bad migraines
  • You have severe chronic liver disease
  • You have unexplained vaginal bleeding

If you have any other health conditions (separate to the ones listed above), these are still worth mentioning to your doctor or local pharmacist, just in case some precautions prove necessary while taking katya. You should also disclose any medicines you are currently taking, because certain ones could end up interacting with the effects of Katya.

It’s particularly important to highlight the following medicines if you are taking any of them:

  • Treatments for epilepsy (such as primidone, phenytoin, lamotrigine and barbiturates)
  • Treatments for tuberculosis (such as rifampicin)
  • Immunomodulation agents (such as Ciclosporin)
  • Treatments of HIV infections (such as ritonavir) or other infectious diseases (such as griseofulvin, ampicillin or tetracycline)
  • The herbal remedy St. John’s Wort

How do I take Katya pills?

Katya is known as a 21-day pill, which means you take one pill per day for 21 days until the blister pack is finished, then have 7 pill-free days before starting the next pack.

Even if the bleeding has not stopped when the eight day arrives, you should still start your next pack regardless. Make sure you take Katya at a similar time of day each day.

When can I start taking Katya pills?

The right time to start taking katya depends on certain circumstances. If you have not used a contraceptive with hormones in the previous month, then begin taking katya tablets on the first day of your next cycle. You can alternatively start on day 2-5 of the cycle, but then you should use extra protective measures for the first 7 days of tablet-taking.

If you are changing from another combined hormonal contraceptive treatment, then start using katya on the day after the tablet-free period of your previous pill finishes, or follow your doctor’s guidance if changing from a vaginal ring or patch.

If you are wanting to use katya after having a baby, then you can start taking these tablets 21-28 days after having the baby. If you start using katya when more than 28 days have passed, you’ll need to use a barrier method (such as a condom) during the first 7 days of tablet-taking. Seek advice from your doctor if you are changing over from a treatment that only contains progestogen or you want to use katya after a miscarriage.

Side effects of Katya

Like all medications, Katya may have side effects, but not everyone gets them. Common side effects include:

  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Changes to your period
  • Depression and mood swings
  • Painful breasts
  • Headaches

Taking Katya increases your chance of getting a blood clot, which can be very dangerous. Seek medical attention immediately if you think you may have developed a blood clot. Blood clots are more likely:

  • With increasing age
  • If you smoke
  • If you are overweight
  • If you have high blood pressure
  • If a close relative has had a heart attack or stroke at a young age
  • If you have a high level of fat in your blood
  • If you get migraines
  • If you have a problem with your heart
  • If you have diabetes

There is a possible small link between Katya and breast cancer, which you can read about in the patient information leaflet.
