What is Microgynon used for?

Microgynon is a combined oral contraceptive that is taken daily to prevent pregnancy. If taken on the first day of your menstrual cycle it provides immediate protection. Each Microgynon pill contains synthetic versions of the two female hormones, progesterone and oestrogen. Microgynon works to prevent pregnancy in three ways, providing you with reliable contraceptive protection. It is also used to treat endometriosis, premenstrual tension and painful or heavy periods.

HealthExpress provides a safe and secure way to order Microgynon online. To start the ordering process, simply complete a free and confidential consultation, which will be checked by one of our registered doctors to ensure that Microgynon is right for you.

What are the benefits of Microgynon pills?

Microgynon a version of 'the pill', one of the most reliable contraceptive methods available. It can provide immediate contraceptive protection if taken on the first day of your period, however, it can still be taken two to five days after your period has started, although it may then take seven days for the contraceptive to take effect.

Taking Microgynon can help to keep your periods regular, lighter and can reduce the pain you experience before and during menstruation. Some women may also notice that pre-menstrual symptoms such as mood changes are much less likely to occur if they take Microgynon pills.

How does this birth control pill work?

Microgynon works in three ways to prevent pregnancy. Firstly it stops ovulation so that no egg is released. Secondly, it increases the texture of the mucous present in the cervix, which makes it almost impossible for sperm to enter the womb. The third way in which Microgynon pills work is to prevent growth of the lining of the womb, so that it doesn't become thick enough for an egg to settle, in the unlikely event that ovulation does take place.

Who can take Microgynon?

You can buy Microgynon pills online if you are over the age of 18 and if you are looking for a long term treatment to prevent pregnancy. You should not take this contraception if you are pregnant, think you are pregnant or if you are breastfeeding. If you have experienced vaginal bleeding that has not been explained by your doctor, or if you have a history of circulation problems, heart problems or stroke, you may not be suitable for this contraceptive.

During your consultation, you should make sure to mention any medical conditions or illnesses you may have, or have had, to your doctor. Microgynon may not be as effective as you need it to be if taken alongside certain medications, so ensure that you mention any natural, over-the-counter or prescription treatments you are using during your consultation. If you cannot use this treatment, our doctor may prescribe an alternative contraceptive method.

How do you take Microgynon?

You should take this contraceptive treatment at the same time every day, with or without food. Microgynon is a monophasic 21 day pill, so during every 28 day cycle there will be a seven day period where you do not have to take it. If you have taken the Microgynon pills at the same time every day as instructed, you should be fully protected during these seven days. Monophasic means that you only take one type of pill for the entire duration of your cycle.

Are there any side affects I need to be aware of?

There are side effects associated with Microgynon pills, however they tend to be very mild in nature and go away as your body gets used to Microgynon without requiring any specific treatment. The most common side effects may include nausea, vomiting, breast tenderness, water retention or change in menstrual bleeding. Some serious side effects such as circulation issues can occur, but this only affects a very small number of users. It's recommended that you seek medical help if any of the above side effects become bothersome, persistent or if you experience anything more serious.

Can you buy Microgynon online?

You can order Microgynon pills online from HealthExpress after completing an online consultation form. This will be used by our registered doctors to evaluate whether this contraceptive is suitable for you to use or not. If your consultation is approved, you will be able to purchase Microgynon or a doctor may recommend an alternative treatment for you to use. After you complete the order process, your prescription will be sent out to our registered pharmacy and your contraception will be dispatched for overnight delivery.
