About Katya

Active ingredients of Katya

Katya contains two active ingredients, 30 μg (micrograms) of ethinylestradiol and 75 μg (micrograms) of gestodene, which are synthetic versions of the natural hormones oestrogen and progesterone produced in women who have periods.

Ethinylestradiol and gestodene work together to prevent pregnancy in the following three ways,

  • Prevent ovulation – a process where your eggs ripen and are released from your ovaries each month.
  • Thin your womb lining - making it less likely for the fertilized egg to attach to your uterus.
  • Increase the thickness of your natural mucus at the neck of the womb – making it more difficult for sperm to reach your egg.

Common side effects

Common side effects can include:

  • Nausea.
  • Headache.
  • Weight gain.
  • Changes in your mood.
  • Tender or sore breasts.
  • Low libido (loss of desire for sex).
  • Breakthrough bleeding or spotting.
