Ovranette FAQs

What are the benefits of using Ovranette pills?

If taken at the right time in your cycle, Ovranette contraceptive pills can provide you with immediate protection against pregnancy. This contraceptive is taken only once a day, for 21 days out of your full 28-day cycle, and provides you with almost 100% contraceptive cover. Ovranette pills are proven to help treat endometriosis, and can be very effective in treating long and painful periods.

How does it work?

This contraceptive contains both artificial oestrogen and progestogen, which means that it works in three ways to prevent pregnancy. If taken correctly, Ovranette contraceptive pills prevent ovulation by making your body believe that ovulation has already occurred. The ingredients in Ovranette contraceptive pills do not allow your womb lining to thicken enough so that an egg can't grow inside. They also prevent pregnancy by keeping sperm cells away from the womb by thickening the cervical mucus to the extent that makes it almost impossible for sperm to break through.

Who can take Ovranette contraceptive pills?

Most healthy women of the age of 18 can use Ovranette pills as a method of contraception. However, some women may not be able to use the pill because of their medical history or the medications they are currently taking. That is why it is so important to mention any of these medications during your free online consultation.

Who cannot take it?

You should not take Ovranette pills if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, if you have heart, liver or circulation problems, or if you are over 35 and a smoker. Taking medications like vitamin C and St John's Wort might also influence how effective Ovranette is.

How do you take it?

Ovranette should be taken on the first day of your period for it to be immediately effective. Alternatively, it can be taken up until the fifth day of your period, although in this case you will have to wait seven days for the pill to become fully effective. Ovranette pills are 21-day pills, which means that it should be taken for 21 consecutive days followed by seven pill-free days. After the seven-day break, you should start taking the next pack of Ovranette pills. During the seven days you will experience a withdrawal bleed, but you will still be protected. A withdrawal bleed helps your body remove all the additional hormones it has been supplemented with.

Are there any side effects?

It is generally well tolerated, but some women do experience side effects when using it. Sometimes women experience mild side effects when they use this type of oral contraceptive for the first time, but this may just be because the body isn't used to the additional hormones contained in the pill. Most side effects will normally pass within a couple of days once the body has adapted. The most common side effects of Ovranette pills are nausea, reduced sex drive, weight gain and headaches.
