More information about Sunya

What is Sunya?

Sunya is a combined contraceptive. It is taken orally in the form of a tablet, which is why it is also referred to as ‘the pill’.

If taken correctly, the pill is one the most reliable forms of contraception, offering protection against pregnancy around 99% of the time.

Please note, this medication does not protect you against STIs - only condoms will do this.

How does it work?

Sunya contains synthetic versions (ethinylestradiol and gestodene) of the hormones estrogen and progesterone.

As with all combined pills, Sunya has three modes of action to prevent pregnancy:

  1. it stops an egg from being released by your ovaries
  2. it increases the volume of mucus in the cervix, which means sperm cannot as easily enter the womb
  3. it thins the womb-lining so that a fertilized egg cannot implant

Each of these is alone enough to prevent conception. The combination makes the chance of conception less than one per cent.

How do I take it?

Always follow instructions laid out in the patient leaflet as well as what the doctor advises. You will find the patient leaflet contained with your order. One can also be viewed by clicking the link to the right of this page.

You should:

  • take one tablet tablet every day
  • tablets can be taken with water
  • you should take the tablets around the same time daily
  • the strip containing the tablets is labeled with days of the week (to make it easier to remember)
  • continue to take one tablet daily, until you have taken all 21 tablets
  • you should then take a break of 7 days
  • during this time, you should experience withdrawal bleeding
  • on day 8, take the next tablet, even if you are still bleeding
  • if taken correctly, you are protected during the 7 day break

If you have any questions about how to take this medication, please consult your doctor.

You can also arrange to speak to one of HealthExpress’ doctors. Please contact Customer Services. You will find contact information at the bottom of this page.

What are the possible side effects?

As a hormonal contraceptive, Sunya shares many side effects with other combined contraceptives. It is also important to note, everyone reacts differently to hormones and experiences different side effects. However, the most commonly occurring include:

  • abdominal pain
  • breast abnormalities
  • depression
  • dizziness
  • increased risk of infection
  • menstrual cycle irregularities
  • mood swings
  • nervousness
  • vaginal discharge

If you find any of the above causes you concern, you should stop treatment and contact your doctor. There are contraceptive alternatives that produce fewer side effects, such as the mini pill.

When can I not take this medication?

There are a number of conditions as well as the use of certain medications that make Sunya unsuitable to take. Its use can worsen the condition and interact with the medications, resulting in complications.

Do not use Sunya if you have:

  • ever suffered a blood clot, DVT or any other blood clotting disorder
  • an upcoming operation
  • ever had a heart condition or stroke
  • very high blood pressure, very high cholesterol or severe diabetes
  • ever suffered severe migraines with aura
  • any liver or kidney conditions
  • abnormal liver or kidney function
  • ever had breast or cervical cancer
  • unexplained bleeding from the vagina
  • allergies to any of the ingredients in this medication

What precautions should I take?

Before you are prescribed this medication, your GP will ask you questions about your health and your family history - they should also measure your blood pressure.

You should be monitored by your doctor when you are first using this medication, to ensure you do not suffer any serious complications. Even if you have used a hormonal contraceptive for a long time, you should still return to your doctor for regular check-ups.

This is the reason why HealthExpress can only prescribe Sunya after an initial prescription from your personal doctor.

You should also make sure to examine your breasts regularly, checking for any lumps or abnormalities.

Can I buy Sunya online?

Yes, you can buy Sunya online. However, first, you must complete an online consultation. This is so our doctors can determine the medication is safe for you to use. It is important that you answer all questions honestly and in detail.
