Brevinor is commonly known as 'the pill', and is a daily oral contraceptive that is almost 100% effective at stopping pregnancy. Brevinor can also help to regulate your periods, reduce pain and shorten the duration of your period. Brevinor contains both artificial oestrogen and progestogen (ethinylestradiol and norethisterone), and if taken on the first day of your period, protection is usually immediate.
As Brevinor is a version of the pill, it works in three ways to stop you from falling pregnant. Firstly, it supplements your body with hormones (ethinylestradiol 35 micrograms and norethisterone 0.5 milligrams), which override your natural cycle. This makes your body think that ovulation has already occurred, so that your body doesn't release an egg like usual. Secondly, because ovulation isn't happening, the womb lining doesn't thicken, which means that even if an egg does get released it can't attach itself to the womb lining and grow. Thirdly, the hormones prevent sperm from entering the womb, as they change the consistency of the cervical fluid.
Brevinor provides almost 100% contraceptive cover when used correctly. If you take it on the first day of your period, you'll be able to benefit from this protection straight away. Brevinor contains the same dose of contraceptives as Binovum, but it's monophasic, so you only have to ingest a single dose during your entire cycle, which makes it easier to take.
Taking a monophasic birth control pill can help to regulate your hormone levels, which makes it less likely that you will experience mood changes as a result of natural fluctuating hormone cycles.
Some women use Brevinor pills to treat acne, and improvements are often seen within three months in the patients who respond well to hormonal treatments.
For immediate protection, you should take your first Brevinor pill on the first day of your period. You can also take it up to the fifth day of your period, but then you will have to wait for up to seven days before it is completely effective. Brevinor is a 21-day oral contraceptive, which means that you'll have to take it for 21 consecutive days, preferably at the same time each day.
After the 21 days, you need to take a seven-day break. You will be completely protected during this time and may experience a withdrawal bleed similar to your period.
After the seven-day break, you should start with your next 21 pills immediately.
There is one standard dosage, which contains 35 micrograms of Ethinylestradiol, and 500 micrograms of Norethisterone. There are 21 pills per pack, which will last a month, including your required 7 day break.
If you happen to forget to take your pill at the normal time, take is as soon as your remember. However, if you find that you've missed it by 24 hours or more, it is advised to follow the following protocol:
For more information about what to do if you've missed your dosage for a significant period, it's always best to speak to your doctor or pharmacist.
