What is Microgynon?

Microgynon (also sold as Microgynon 30) 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 pill contains the two active ingredients; ethinylestradiol and levonorgestrel. These ingredients work 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.

How does it work?

Microgynon combined pill 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 much harder for sperm to enter the womb. The third way in which the contraceptive tablets 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.

Cervix UTERUS VAGINA Oestrogen and Progesterone prevent eggs from being released from the ovaries. Progesterone causes thinning of the endometrium, which prevents implantation of a fertilised egg. Progesterone thickens the mucus in the cervix, preventing sperm from reaching eggs.

What are the benefits of Microgynon 30?

As a combined pill', which is 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. Other benefits include:

  • Prevents the chance of pregnancy after sex by around 99%
  • Can help to keep your periods regular and lighter
  • Can reduce the pain you experience before and during menstruation
  • Some women may also notice that premenstrual symptoms, such as mood swings, are much less likely to occur

Will it protect me against STIs?

Microgynon pills will not protect you against any sexually transmitted diseases/infections. If you've had had unprotected sex and are worried you might have contracted an STI, you should talk to your GP or visit a local sexual health centre.

Alternatively, you can take a look at some of the options available from HealthExpress.

How do I take the Microgynon pill?

As it is a monophasic 21 day pill, there will be a seven day break during the 28 day cycle period. If you have taken the pills at the same time every day as instructed, you should be fully protected during these seven days.

Take on the first day of your period to get protection almost immediately. Try to take the oral pill at as close to the same time every day as you can. This may help you get into a regular routine. Each Microgynon tablet should be swallowed with a drink, with or without food. Do not store above 25°C. Protect from light. Do not use your Microgynon pill after the expiry date printed on the package.

What dosages are available?

There is one standard dosage for all the pills in the blister pack. Each one contains 150 mcg (micrograms) of the progestogen levonorgestrel and 30 mcg of the oestrogen ethinylestradiol. This dosage has been designed specifically to maintain effectiveness, whilst also minimising potential negative reactions.

What is the difference between Microgynon 30 and Microgynon 30 ED?

Whilst both contraceptive pills share the same active ingredients, they do differ in one aspect, and that is the amount of pills per strip. A strip for Microgynon 30 ED contains 28 tablets (21 beige and 7 white), whilst a strip for Microgynon 30 contains only 21 tablets. The 7 white pills in the Microgynon 30 ED strip don't contain any hormones, and are used as placebos.

What should I do about a missed pill?

If you happen to forget to take your Microgynon pill at the usual time, then make sure to take is as soon as your can. However, if you have missed it by 24 hours or more, it is recommended to follow these instructions as a guide:

  • If you have accidentally missed one pill, then take it as soon as you can. Sometimes this might mean taking two pills at the same time. After this has been done, you can then continue taking the rest of the pack as instructed by your doctor.
  • If you miss two or more pills, then you will not be protected against falling pregnant. However, take the missed pill as soon as you remember, even if it means taking two at the same time. Due to the way Microgynon works, you're always advised to use condoms or other forms of contraception for the next 7 days.[1]

For more information about what to do if you've missed your oral dose for a significant period of time, it's always advised to speak to your doctor or go to the sexual health clinic to speak to a professional. You could also speak to a pharmacist if you're unable to see one of the others.

Are there any side effects when taking Microgynon?

There are side effects associated with combined contraceptive 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.

Does the pill cause weight gain?

Some pills have high oestrogen content, and oestrogen affects body mass. Certain contraceptives have also been reported to increase hunger, so whilst some pills on their own don't cause you to put on weight, it's important to watch your eating habits as you might not feel full even when you are.
