Not sure which Contraception treatment you need?
Marvelon is a combined oral contraceptive (the pill) for the prevention of pregnancy. Marvelon pills are one of the most reliable, reversible methods of contraception available. In clinical trials it showed a very low pregnancy rate of 0.1% within the first year of use. As a result of taking the Marvelon pill, you may notice an improvement in the appearance or your skin, especially if you suffer from acne. Also, if used over the long term, this contraceptive can also reduce a woman's risk of developing cancer of the ovaries and womb.
Marvelon is available to purchase safely and discreetly online from HealthExpress after you complete a quick online consultation. The online consultation will help ensure that you get the right contraceptive solution for your body.

What are the benefits of taking Marvelon pills?
Marvelon pills protect against pregnancy immediately if taken on the first day of your menstrual cycle. They can be taken up to the fifth day of your period; however, you will need to take additional precautions for up to seven days if you begin to take them at this time. This pill can help to make periods lighter, less painful and more regular, which will be helpful if you experience particularly uncomfortable periods.
Using a contraceptive such as Marvelon, means that there is no need to interrupt sex in order to use contraceptive precautions. These contraceptive pills have an anti-androgenic effect, which means that it reduces the amount of testosterone present in your system; this consequently can reduce any problems you might have with acne. Studies have also suggested that this contraceptive pill can reduce your chance of developing cancer of the womb or ovaries.
How does it work?
Marvelon is a low dose contraceptive that contains two female sex hormones, oestrogen and progestogen. These two hormones work to prevent ovulation, so that no egg gets released for potential fertilisation. The active ingredients also cause the fluid present in the cervix to become too thick for sperm to enter the womb.
Who can take the Marvelon pill?
Marvelon can be purchased online by most healthy women aged 18 or older. There are however certain instances where you might not be advised to take Marvelon pills. Therefore, it's advised to mention any medical conditions you have, or have experienced, and medications you are currently using during your consultation. Marvelon cannot be taken if you are pregnant, think you are pregnant or if you are breastfeeding.
How do I take it?
Your first Marvelon pill should be taken on the first day of your period for immediate protection. It can be taken up to the fifth day of your period, but it's advisable to use additional contraception for seven days to give the medication time to take effect. To ensure you don't forget to take your Marvelon pill, we recommend that you take it at the same time every day. Marvelon pills should be taken for 21 days consecutively after which you will have a seven day period where you don't have to take any oral contraception. During this time, you will probably experience some withdrawal bleeding. If you have taken the treatment as instructed, you won't have to worry about any additional contraception during this time. After seven days, simply start a new course.
Are there any side effects?
There are very few people who experience side effects when using Marvelon pills, and it was very well tolerated in clinical trials. If side effects do occur, they are usually mild in nature and pass relatively quickly without any treatment. Some of the most common side effects are mild nausea, vomiting, bloating, breast pain or tenderness, increased hair growth, changes in weight or appetite, changes in sex drive and periods, and headaches.
