Oral contraceptive pills are a hormonal method of birth control to be used by women in order to prevent pregnancy. Contraceptives essentially work by acting on the endocrine system to prevent fertilization. The oral contraceptive pills are available in two main kinds of formulations; combined oral contraceptives which contain a combination of female hormones, oestrogen and progestin, and progesterone only pills. The pills are very effective in preventing pregnancy and when taken rightly have a failure rate of less than 1% per year. The non-contraceptive benefits of the pills include reduction in menstrual blood loss, anaemia and the risk of ovarian cancers.
Cerazette is a contraceptive pill containing desogestrel, which is synthetic progesterone. It is also known as the "progesterone-only pill." Unlike other such pills, it also prevents the ovum from maturing. If you are taking a contraceptive pill for the first time, you should take it on the first day of your menstrual period. Continue taking one tablet each day for the entire month. Your menstrual period will likely occur after 21 days of starting the medicine. As this medication is available in the form of 28 day blister packs, you can start the new pack on the very next day your last pack finished.
Yasmin is an oral contraceptive pill for women intended to prevent pregnancy. It is a combined contraceptive pill, i.e., it contains both an oestrogen (ethinyl estradiol) and a progestin (drospirenone). Yasmin works by preventing ovulation and changing the uterine and cervical lining. This makes it more difficult for the sperm to reach the uterus and for the fertilized egg to attach to the uterus. In some cases, this medication can also be used for treating symptoms associated with premenstrual dysphoric disorder, such as depression, anxiety, trouble concentrating, irritability, appetite or sleep changes, lack of energy, breast tenderness, weight gain, joint or muscle pain, or headache.
Dianette is most often used as a treatment of severe acne, which has not improved by the use of other therapy such as antibiotics. Dianette is also commonly used in the treatment of moderate to severe hirsutism (excess body hair). Dianette is a combination of hormones and also acts as a birth control pill. Any woman over 18 years of age can use this contraceptive pill to prevent a pregnancy.
Microgynon is a combined oral birth control pill, containing oestrogen and progesterone. Your doctor will not recommend you to use Microgynon if you have a blood disorder, SLE, angina, heart valve disease, irregular heartbeat, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, severe diabetes, cancer of the genital tract, liver cancer, undiagnosed vaginal bleeding, hepatitis, gallstones, jaundice or porphyria.
Each Mercilon pill contains 150mg of desogestrel and 20mg of ethinylestradiol. The medication is available in 21-day packs, which means that there will be a gap of 7 days before you start a new pack. Your menstrual periods will surface during these 7 days. Do not take this medication if you have high blood pressure, hyperlipoproteinaemia, arterial thrombosis, venous thromboembolism, diabetes mellitus, cholelithiasis, severe liver disease, hepatitis, cholestatic jaundice or an estrogen-dependent tumor. Special tests and dosage adjustments will be needed if you have diabetes mellitus, epilepsy, coagulation disorder, migraine, severe depression or sickle cell haemoglobinopathy. Also do not take the medication if you are already using anticonvulsants, antibiotics, laxatives or barbiturates, as severe drug interactions may take place.
Each Cilest pill consists of 0.25mg norgestimate and 0.035mg ethinylestradiol. You will take one tablet every day, preferably at the same time each day. If you have missed a tablet, do not take two tablets at a time. You will be advised to use latex condoms for that month.
Each Ovranette tablet contains 150mg of levonorgestrel and 30mg of ethinylestradiol. As these are available in 21-day packs, you should maintain a gap of 7 days from when this pack finishes and when you begin a new pack. Menstrual periods or withdrawal bleeding are expected to take place during the 7 day break from the medicine.
Loestrin 20 and Loestrin 30 are oral contraceptive pills and contain a combination of the female hormones, ethinylestradiol and norethisterone acetate. The two variants differ in the relative proportion of oestrogen to progesterone. Your doctor will not recommend Loestrin if you have thrombophlebitis or a thromboembolic disorder, coronary artery disease, cerebral vascular disease, breast carcinoma, endometrium carcinoma, estrogen dependent neoplasia, abnormal or undiagnosed vaginal bleeding, hepatic adenoma or carcinoma, or cholestatic jaundice. You should not use Loestrin if you smoke, as smoking increases your risks of having a serious cardiovascular side effect while taking Loestrin, especially if you are more than 35 years of age or if you smoke more than 15 cigarettes per day. Women using oral contraceptive are advised to quit smoking.
Each Micronor tablet contains 0.35mg of norethisterone. You will have to take one tablet each day, preferably at the same time every day. Remember that this medication does not provide protection against sexually transmitted diseases like AIDS. If you have more than one sexual partner, you are advised to use a barrier form of contraception like latex condoms or diaphragms.
Each Marvelon tablet has 150mg of desogestrel and 30mg of ethinylestradiol. The medication is available in 21 and 28 day packs. The one you use depends on your personal requirements and preferences. The 21 day packs require a 7 day break before starting the next pack. The 28 day pack requires continual use without any break in taking the medicine.
