What is Mercilon used for?

Mercilon is a combined oral contraceptive (the pill) which can be taken daily to prevent pregnancy. If taken correctly, Mercilon is proven to be almost 100% effective at preventing pregnancy. Mercilon is a variant of Marvelon that has a lower dosage of synthetic oestrogen, making it a better choice for women who are more sensitive to this hormone.

Mercilon pills are available to buy online from HealthExpress, but in order to ensure your safety we ask you to take a free and completely confidential online consultation first. Every consultation is reviewed by one of our doctors and if they confirm that you are safe and suitable for this contraceptive, you'll be able to complete your order.

What are the benefits?

If you take it on the first day of your period, Mercilon's contraceptive effects will be immediate. If you take it later, it may take up to seven days to become effective. Like other variants of the pill, it can help to make painful periods less uncomfortable and more regulated. Pre-menstrual symptoms could also become less severe when you take the pill.

Weight gain is one of the main concerns women have when using oral contraceptives. Mercilon pills contain less oestrogen than most traditional combination contraceptives; this significantly reduces your chances of gaining weight while on the pill. Some research has even shown that using this contraceptive can possibly cause a slight reduction in weight with long term use.

How does it work?

Mercilon pills work in three ways. Firstly, the two active ingredients found in Mercilon prevent ovulation from occurring, so that the ovaries don't release an egg that could potentially be reached by a sperm. Secondly, to prevent sperm from entering the womb, Mercilon pills increase the viscosity of the mucous in the womb. As a final measure, this treatment ensures that the womb lining doesn't thicken up enough for an egg to grow and develop.

Who can take Mercilon pills?

You can buy Mercilon online for daily contraception if you are over 18 years of age. You should not use Mercilon if you are pregnant, have circulation problems, unexplained vaginal bleeding, have heart problems, liver problems or have had a stroke. Make sure that you mention any other medical issues or medications you are using in your consultation.

How do you take it?

It should be taken without a break for 21 days of your menstrual cycle, followed by seven days when you don't take anything. During these seven days you will still be completely protected. There can be some withdrawal bleeding during this time, but this is a normal part of your treatment. Mercilon pills should be taken at the same time everyday to help make sure that you do not skip a day. Mercilon can be taken with or without food.

Are there any side effects when taking Mercilon pills?

Side effects are very rare with this medication, but if they do occur, they are usually mild and will pass as soon as your body has adjusted to the medication. Possible side effects include nausea, breast tenderness, mood changes and breakthrough bleeding.

Can I buy Mercilon pills online?

Mercilon pills are available to purchase from HealthExpress after you complete a quick online consultation form. This form is completely confidential and helps our doctor to make sure that the treatment you have chosen is safe for you to use. If your consultation is approved you will be able to purchase your treatment safely and securely. A prescription will then be sent to our pharmacy, where your treatment will be dispatched for discreet overnight delivery.
