Dronis 3 mg .02mg is a combined contraceptive pill consisting of Drospirenone 3 mg/Ethinyl estradiol .02 mg. It contains 24 days of pills with hormones followed by four days of hormone-free pills. This treatment regimen is often called the 24/4 regimen.
Your chance of getting pregnant depends on how well you follow the directions for taking your contraceptive pills. The better you follow the instructions, the less chance you have of getting pregnant.
When taking Dronis, ensure reading directions carefully before consuming contraceptive pills or consult a doctor if you are unsure about the dosing regimen. The right way to take it every day is to preferably take it after the evening meal or at bedtime, with some water. The combination hormonal contraceptive pill can consume without regard to meals. If you miss pills, you could get pregnant. The more pills you miss, the more likely you are to conceive. Many women experience spotting or light bleeding at unexpected times or may feel sick to their stomach during the first 1 to 3 packs of pills.
If you have spotting or light bleeding or may feel sick to your stomach, do not stop taking the pills. The problem usually disappears within a few days. If you vomit within 3 to 4 hours of taking the pill, you should consult your doctor. If you have diarrhoea or take certain other medications, including some antibiotics, your contraceptive pill will not work.
A gynaecologist will not give you Dronis 3 mg .02 mg if you:
- Ever had a heart attack
- Ever had a stroke
- Have high blood pressure
- Have an inherited problem with your blood and make you more likely to clot.
- Have diabetes with eye, kidney, nerve, or blood vessel damage
- Ever had breast cancer or other cancer that is sensitive to female hormones.
- Have certain heart valve problems or heart rhythm abnormalities that can cause blood clots to form in the heart.
The progestin drospirenone may increase potassium levels in your bloodstream. Therefore, you should not take Dronis if you have liver, kidney, or adrenal disease because this could cause serious heart complications. Concomitant use of other drugs may also increase blood potassium. If you are currently on long-term treatment for a chronic condition with any of these medications below, you should speak to your doctor, whether the contraceptive medication is right for you or not:
- Potassium supplementation
- Aldosterone antagonists
- Angiotensin II receptor antagonists such as Cozaar, Avapro, Diovan and others
- Potassium-sparing diuretics
- ACE inhibitors such as Zestril, Vasotec, Capoten and others
- NSAIDs when used for long term and daily for treatment of arthritis or other problems
Birth control pills do not protect you against sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV, the virus responsible for causing AIDs. Do not miss any pill, even if you don't have sex more often.

Less common side effects are bloating or fluid retention, acne, weight changes, high fat, high blood sugar, blotchy darkening of the skin, lack of sexual desire.
