Marvelon is a combined oral contraceptive (also most commonly known as 'the pill'), taken in the form of a 0.15mg / 30mcg tablet, that is used for the successful prevention of pregnancy. Marvelon pills are one of the most reliable, reversible methods of contraception available. In clinical trials, it showed a near non-existent 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 pills also result in lighter, less painful and more regular menstrual bleeding.
Marvelon is a low dose hormonal contraceptive that contains artificial versions of the two female sex hormones; oestrogen and progestogen in the form of its active ingredients ethinylestradiol and desogestrel. These ingredients work in tandem by overriding the normal menstrual cycle, which prevents ovulation so that no egg is released for potential fertilisation.
The daily dose of hormones within the pill essentially works by tricking your body into thinking that ovulation has already occurred. This prevents your eggs from being released from your ovaries each month.
The active ingredients also cause the fluid present in the natural mucus, at the neck of the womb, to become too thick for sperm to enter the womb, and reach an egg.
Marvelon also changes the quality of the womb lining (endometrium). This ensures that it is far less likely that a fertilised egg can get implanted there.
There are a number of benefits to using Marvelon, when taken correctly.
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. For more information regarding these precautions, please refer to the 'precautions for Marvelon' section below to learn more, before taking this contraceptive pill
Many women find they miss a pill every now and then. Luckily with the combined pill, if you miss just the one, you can take as soon as you remember and still be fully protected against pregnancy.
If you miss more than one then the effectiveness can drop. This means you will need to use further barrier contraceptives until you start the next pack.
As the contraceptive pill is ingested, this also means Marvelon may not be as effective if you vomit or have severe diarrhoea. The same process follows; take another pill once the illness has subsided and use condoms for further peace of mind.
Your first Marvelon 0.15mg / 30mcg 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.
There are very few people who experience side effects when using Marvelon pills, and it is very well tolerated having been proven so in clinical trials. If side effects do occur, they are usually mild in nature and pass relatively quickly without any treatment, especially at the beginning of the medication.
Some of the most common side effects are:
Side effects in general are highly unlikely to occur when taking Marvelon pills, but if they do happen and are consistent then you should contact your doctor or local GP to discuss your condition.
Before taking Marvelon, there are some precautions that must be considered. They include the following:
Women over 50 years of age shouldn't be taking Marvelon, or if they are over 35 years of age, but smoke over 15 cigarettes per day.
