About MicrogynonThe combined Oral Contraceptive, which is commonly known as the birth control pill or simply “the pill” is a type of medication that is taken by women orally to willfully prevent getting pregnant. It is consists of the two types of female sex hormones namely, estrogen and progestogen.
These hormones prevent pregnancy by stopping the dissemination of egg cells from the ovaries and producing a thicker fluid in the cervix to make it harder for sperm cells to get into the womb. It also prevents the thickening of the womb linings so the egg cells won't build-up in it. Microgynon is taken once a day for 21 days and followed by a seven-day rest from the pill.
How does it work?Ethinylestradiol and Levonorgestrel are the synthetic versions of naturally existing female hormones, and these are the two principal active ingredients of Microgynon tablets.
Microgynon is an example of combined oral contraceptives and it works by reversing your regular menstrual cycle. Transforming levels of sex hormones is one of the characterizations of a woman's normal menstrual cycle, and these sex hormones are responsible for the discharge of the egg cells from the ovaries and develop the lining of the womb for probable pregnancy. After every menstrual cycle, if an egg was not fertilized, the level of the hormones drop and it results in detaching of the lining of the womb, manifested by a monthly period.
The everyday dosage of hormones found in the pill makes your body think that ovulation has occurred already, resulting in the cessation of maturing and releasing of the egg from the ovaries monthly.
The hormones are also responsible for expanding the thickness of the mucus of the womb. Thus, the sperm will find it difficult to pass through from the vagina into the womb to fertilize an egg. Besides, these hormones also function by altering the quality of the lining of the womb, making it less beneficial for a fertilized egg to be embedded there.
Advantages of MicrogynonThe Advantages of taking Microgynon are as follows:
- It does not affect sexual interest/desire
- It may be beneficial in relieving premenstrual symptoms.
- It is one of the most dependable means of contraception that is reversible when taken properly.
- It makes the menstrual period regular, lighter, and less throbbing.
How do I use Microgynon?Microgynon is classified as a monophasic oral contraceptive pill, which means it holds a persistent amount of estrogen and progestogen in each active pill. It is taken once daily for 21 days with one week rest from taking the pills. Throughout the seven-day discontinuation, a decrease in your hormone levels is expected to happen and it results in withdrawal bleeding that seems like a usual menstrual period.
However, even if the bleeding continues, you have to start taking the pills again after the seven-day break from it. A calendar pack is included when you buy Microgynon, to help you monitor and remember your daily intake of the pill. If you do not experience any side effects, or you are not taking any medication that is contraindicated with Microgynon, just continue with the next packet.
It is better to take the pills at a similar time every day to avoid missing your daily dose. It should be swallowed whole with a lot of water, either before or after meals.
Preferably, Microgynon pills should be taken on the first day of your menstrual cycle. This will give you the utmost prevention from getting pregnant instantaneously wherein the use of an additional method of contraception is no longer necessary. For pregnant women who are planning to take Microgynon, make sure to wait up to the 21st day after giving birth before you start taking it to obtain maximum protection from pregnancy without the use of other contraception.
Most importantly, consult your doctor before taking this contraceptive pill. Make sure to tell your doctor about the lists of other medications you are presently taking to avoid any undesirable contraindications or effects.
