Building on our women’s health expertise to make birth control for more women like you
Slynd® comes to you from Exeltis USA, Inc., a pharmaceutical company focusing on women’s health. Our years of experience in creating pharmaceutical products to help women take control of their health is what led us to develop Slynd®.
Here’s what makes Slynd® an innovative choice for many women:
Slynd® is for women who don’t want to take estrogen or can’t take estrogen
Birth control pills containing estrogen have been linked to an increased risk of blood clots, especially in women who smoke or have heart and blood vessel problems. In breastfeeding women, it has also been known to reduce milk production and pass into breast milk. Women today are more conscious about the amount of hormones they place in their bodies which makes estrogen-free Slynd® a great birth control option overall.
Slynd® is for women who need more flexibility in their lives
While it’s important to always try to take your pill on time, if you miss a dose, you have a more flexible 24-hour missed pill window with Slynd®.a aIf you miss a pill, take it as soon as you remember and then continue taking a pill each day at the same time.
Slynd® is for women who want consistency in taking a pill each day
If you’ve ever taken a birth control pill that contains estrogen, you’re likely familiar with the 24 active hormone pill + 4 inactive placebo pill dosing schedule. Slynd® is the only estrogen-free pill that follows this schedule.
Slynd® is for women who may want access to birth control from the comfort of their homes
You have many items on your to-do list, and spending hours waiting to see a doctor isn’t always one of them. That’s why we work with GoGo Care to offer you the choice of getting your prescription online.
Why women need Slynd®
I’m breastfeeding and want a pill that prevents pregnancy and still allows me to continue breastfeeding
Due to my high BMI (Body Mass Index), my doctor doesn't want me to take a pill that contains estrogen.
I smoke, so my contraceptive shouldn’t contain estrogen.
