What is Aranelle used for?

Aranelle is a prescription medicine designed for women who would like to prevent a pregnancy, and so it is classified as a birth control pill. Aranelle contains estrogen or ethinyl estradiol and progestin or norethindrone. Combination oral contraceptives are common forms of birth control pills.

If taking Aranelle, you must familiarize yourself with the sequence through which the pills are taken, because if you don’t, it might fail to prevent pregnancy by not stopping ovulation. Besides preventing ovulation, Aranelle also alters the cervical mucus by making it harder for the sperms to swim all the way to the uterus and also works by altering the lining of the uterus, making it harder for an embryo to attach itself.


As every woman’s cycle is unique, ensure that you take Aranelle from the date your doctor prescribes, and you may take it with food or without food. The groups of pills described above are to be taken from pill 1 to 28 in that order, and if you do it incorrectly, you might have to use another contraceptive method to prevent pregnancy. This is a prescription medication only, and you will need to visit your doctor to be provided with one.

Side Effects

Aranelle is generally well-tolerated, but it does not mean that there are no side effects to be had. The most common ones include:

  • Breakthrough bleeding or spotting between periods
