How does Qlaira work?

Qlaira contains 4 types of pills with different levels of oestrogen and progestogen. Qlaira works by stepping down oestrogen and stepping up progestogen levels. This means Qlaira will mimic your body’s natural sex hormone levels and prevent pregnancy by:

  • stopping your ovaries from releasing an egg during ovulation
  • causing the mucus around your cervix to thicken so sperm are unable to get through
  • making it difficult for a fertilised egg to attach to the lining of your womb

Qlaira does not protect you from sexually transmitted infections (STIs) or HIV. You can go to a nearby sexual health clinic for regular STI checks.

Who can take Qlaira?

You can take Qlaira if you:

  • are not pregnant or breastfeeding
  • are not about to have an operation
  • do not have liver disease, liver tumours or jaundice
  • do not have breast cancer, ovarian cancer, cervical cancer or womb cancer
  • do not have migraines with aura
  • do not have severe diabetes
  • do not have a high level of fat or cholesterol in your blood
  • do not have hyperhomocysteinaemia
  • do not have vaginal bleeding with an unknown cause
  • have never had a heart attack or stroke
  • do not have angina
  • do not have a family history of blood clots
  • have not got high blood pressure (hypertension)
  • do not have problems with the blood vessels in your eye
  • have no allergies to anything in Qlaira pills

Check with your doctor before you can use Qlaira if you have:

  • problems with your heart
  • problems with your kidneys
  • inflammatory bowel disease such as ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease
  • varicose veins
  • angioedema
  • given birth within the past few weeks

Read your patient information leaflet or talk to your doctor to check if Qlaira is safe for you to take.
