  • Learn proper use of your particular brand of medication.

  • Be sure to ask your doctor or pharmacist if you have any questions.
  • Use a supplemental form of birth control during the first week of taking Kariva since it takes a while to be effective.

Side Effects
I started passing out occasionally while taking Kariva. It took me a long time for me to figure out that it was because of the pill. I went to 2 different doctors and they didn't know what was going on. I only figured it out once I stopped taking the pill and no longer had any problems. I would get really weak in my arms and legs, I would loose my hearing and my vision, and I would experience major hot flashes and break out into horrible sweats. It was awful.

Side Effects
I would NOT recommend this drug to any woman. I was on it for 2 years and experienced HORRIBLE side effects. I began having pain with intercourse that got worse and worse over the course of a year. My first 6 months of marriage have been terribly stressful. GYN's, dermatologists and general practicioners were not able to diagnose anything wrong with me. I finally went to a vulvovaginal specialist who diagnosed me with atrophic vestibulodynia. The ultimate cause- BIRTH CONTROL. I only had 11% of the testosterone in my body that I should have. My doctor ordered me off the birth control and placed me on testosterone replacement. The constant pain also caused a condition known as pelvic floor dysfunction. My pelvic muscles are a wreck and I now have to go to physical therapy.
