Ovranette is a long-term low dose oral contraceptive that can provide comprehensive protection against pregnancy. Ovranette is also known as levonorgestrel, and is one of the most prescribed oral contraceptives available. Ovranette pills are almost 100% effective if taken correctly. If you are one of the many women who have to deal with long painful periods, this medication can help to minimise your discomfort. Some people also find that Ovranette pills can reduce the occurrence of symptoms associated with premenstrual tension.
Each Ovranette pill contains two artificial hormones, ethinylestradiol and levonorgestrel. Combination contraceptives such as Ovranette stop ovulation from happening, which minimises the odds of an egg that is ready for fertilisation from being released. In the unlikely instance that an egg does get released, Ovranette thins the womb lining, thus preventing the egg from planting itself. Ovranette also changes the viscosity of the mucous in the cervix so that it is too thick for sperm to move through.
Ovranette is a combination contraceptive that can provide you with immediate contraceptive cover, providing it is taken on the first day of your period. This contraceptive provides you with convenient contraceptive cover, so that you don't have to worry about any additional contraceptive measures before you have sex.
Ovranette pills can help you regulate your menstrual cycle, so that you know when you can expect your period. As you do not ovulate when you use the pill, many women do not have their periods, but instead, what you will experience is minor withdrawal bleeding. The lack of an actual period means that the associated cramps will be less severe, or not present at all.
Ovranette is also a lower dosage of hormones than some other similar oral contraceptive tablets, so side effects are often reduced.
No. Ovranette tablets 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 your local sexual health clinic.
Alternatively, you can take a look at some of the options available from HealthExpress.
For immediate protection, your first Ovranette pill should be taken on the first day of your period, but if this is not possible, you can take it up to the fifth day of your period. If this is the case, the medicine's contraceptive effect will take seven days to start working. Ovranette pills come in 21 day pill strips and are taken for the first 21 days of your menstrual cycle, followed by seven pill-free days. You should take the pills at the same time every day, this will ensure that you do not take your contraceptive later than you need to.
There is one standard dosage for Ovranette pills. Each tablet contains 150mcg of levonorgestrel and 30mcg of ethinylestradiol. This dosage has been formulated to maintain effectiveness whilst simultaneously minimising possible side effects.
If you happen to forget to take your Ovranette oral contraceptive 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 these brief instructions:
For more information about what to do if you've missed your Ovranette oral dosage for a significant period, it's always advised to speak to your doctor or someone at an NHS sexual health clinic. You could also speak to a pharmacist if you're unable to see one of the others.
There is a very small risk of developing side effects when taking Ovranette pills. The effects are usually mild and pass as soon as your body has become accustomed to the treatment. Some of the most common side effects:
Women using Ovranette pills for the first time may experience side effects such as spotting, breakthrough bleeding or missed periods. You should talk to your doctor if any breakthrough bleeding persists.
If you're thinking about coming off Ovranette, then it's always advised to speak to your doctor. Some things that you might have initially gone on the pill for to get rid of might come back. These include:
Acne – The Ovranette pill can often keep spots under control, so once you're no longer taking contraceptives, your acne may return.
Breasts – You may notice your breasts becoming smaller. They might also become less tender to the touch, and this often extends to nipples also.
Libido – It's quite common for women to find that their sex drive increases after coming off Ovranette or similar medications.
Mood – Mood-swings and considered to be somewhat common, however lots of women don't experience anything at all in this area. If you are worried about Ovranette and depression or other mental health side effects, it's always recommended to talk to a qualified professional.
