Lizinna comes in a pack of 21 tablets. You take one pill at the same time every day for 21 days and then have a seven-day break. During this seven daybreak, you will get a withdrawal bleed like your period. After the seven pill-free days you start a new pack, even if you still bleeding. You will be also protected against pregnancy in the 7 pill-free days. It's important to take the pill every day at the same time.
