Not sure which Contraception treatment you need?
Binovum is a biphasic combined oral contraceptive, a variant of what is known as ‘the pill'. Binovum is almost 100% effective at preventing conception and comes in a course with two different doses, allowing the dosage of hormones to rise and fall depending on where you are in your menstrual cycle. This helps to reduce side effects, such as bleeding, spotting, and missed periods, if you've experienced them after taking other contraceptives. It is also a successful treatment for endometriosis and can help to reduce heavy, painful or irregular periods.
You can buy Binovum online from HealthExpress if you complete an online consultation, which is completely free of charge. Your consultation will be reviewed by one of our registered doctors, who will make sure that this contraceptive is safe for you to use before approving a prescription.

What are the benefits of using Binovum?
Binovum is a convenient and effective way to prevent pregnancy. It's a combined contraceptive that is taken in two different doses; this allows the dosage of hormones to fall part way through your cycle, when less are needed to prevent pregnancy. Because this fits more naturally to your menstrual cycle, the risk of side effects with Binovum will be reduced.
Binovum contains the same type of artificial oestrogen and progestogen as Loestrin, but has a lower dose of progestogen and higher dose of oestrogen, which may make it more suitable for women who have experienced side effects while using Loestrin. Binovum can also help to treat endometriosis, a condition where womb cells grow outside the womb, and painful periods.
How does it work?
The pill contains two synthetic hormones, a synthetic oestrogen (ethinylestradiol) and a synthetic progestogen (norethisterone). During your monthly cycle, your hormone levels change. During ovulation a high level of hormones causes your body to release an egg from the ovaries and the womb lining to thicken so the egg can attach itself and grow. When you take a daily dose of a combined contraceptive, it convinces the body that ovulation has already happened. This means that an egg never gets released and the womb lining doesn't thicken. The hormones also prevent sperm from entering the womb, because they alter the consistency of cervical fluid.
Who can take Binovum?
Most women over the age of 18 can take Binovum. You should not take Binovum if you are currently taking certain antibiotics, medicines for the treatment of epilepsy, griseofulvin, St John's Wort and certain laxatives. Binovum is also not safe to use if you are pregnant, or have a history of thrombosis, heart or liver problems, regular migraines or very high blood pressure. Make sure you answer all the medical questions in the consultation as thoroughly as possible. Older women who smoke or women who are breastfeeding would be advised to use a mini-pill such as Femulen or Micronor.
How do you take it?
Binovum is a 21 day biphasic pill. To be immediately protected, you should take Binovum on the first day of your period, starting off with the white tablets which contain 35 micrograms of ethinylestradiol and 0.5 milligrams of norethisterone.
The white tablets should be taken for the first seven days of your cycle, followed by 14 days where you take a peach coloured tablet. These contain 35 micrograms of ethinylestradiol and 1 milligram of norethisterone; a slightly higher dose to suit the hormonal levels in your cycles better. After you have taken all 21 pills, you should take a seven day break, during which you will be completely protected. Start your next strip after the seven day break.
Are there any side effects?
Most women find that they don't always find the right contraceptive pill for them straight away. Binovum is generally well tolerated, but some women may experience more side effects than others. The most common side effects are headaches and tender breasts. These usually tend to go away as soon as your body gets used to the hormones, but if it persists or you experience anything more serious, it is advisable to contact a doctor or to choose a different contraceptive.
