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

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.
