Altavera is an oral contraceptive that is administered in tablet form. Women who wish to not become pregnant are the primary patients for this medication. Altavera is a highly effective form of birth control which should only be used and in accordance with and under the direction of a prescribing physician or health care professional. Altavera is a combination drug that contains female hormones that prevent the ovulation cycle. It works in a way that the cervical mucus and uterine lining are changed to an extent that the sperm cannot reach the uterus and make it even harder for any fertilized egg to attach to the uterus. Thus, the main use of Altavera is to prevent pregnancy. However, if you are already pregnant and have recently had a baby or have other blood-related diseases as well as unusual vaginal bleeding then you should not use Altavera and be sure to disclose your medical history to your doctor first.
