Zovia Overview

Reviewed: July 30, 2015
Updated: 

Zovia is a prescription birth control medication used to prevent pregnancy. Zovia contains two hormones, ethynodiol and ethinyl estradiol, which belong to a group of drugs called hormonal contraceptives. These hormones prevent pregnancy by stopping ovulation and by altering cervical mucus and the lining of the uterus to prevent sperm from entering.

This medication comes in tablet form and is taken once daily, with or without food.

Common side effects of Zovia include nausea, breast tenderness, and vaginal bleeding between menstrual periods.
