Already proven safe and effective, we’re working to make it an affordable and accessible option for all women.
Zena is a high-quality oral contraceptive (aka “The Pill”) with a long history of safety and efficacy when taken as directed. Zena has the most commonly prescribed low-dose oral contraceptive estrogen and progestin formulation prescribed by doctors and health professionals for more than two decades.
For Zena to be approved for sale without a prescription, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires extensive testing of over-the-counter (OTC) labeling before approval. Our experts are working diligently with the FDA towards approval for Zena.
For the safety of all, the FDA’s standard approval process is careful and rigorous, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
In its nearly 60-year history, The Pill has been used safely by more than 300 million women.
Taken correctly, oral contraceptives like Zena are 99% effective in preventing pregnancy.
As early as 2012, and again in 2014, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists endorsed over-the-counter access for The Pill. The American Academy of Family Physicians, the American College of Clinical Pharmacists, and the American Public Health Association soon followed.
