More information about Maexeni

What is Maexeni?

Maexeni is a combined contraceptive that is taken orally. It is also known as ‘the pill’. It contains the synthetic hormones, ethinylestradiol and levonorgestrel.

As well as preventing pregnancy, with a success rate of 99%, this medication offers additional benefits, such as lighter periods and milder premenstrual symptoms.

Please note, you can only order this treatment if you have first been prescribed it by your doctor. This is because everyone reacts differently to hormonal contraceptives, and you need to be monitored at first.

How does it work?

As a combined contraceptive, Maexeni works in three different ways, each of them preventing conception:

  • firstly, it prevents an egg from being released by your ovaries
  • secondly, it increases mucus production in the cervix, meaning sperm cannot enter the womb
  • thirdly, it thins the lining of the womb so there is less chance of a fertilised egg implanting into the womb and being able to grow

It is important to follow the instructions of your doctor as well as what is listed in the patient leaflet.

This treatment does not protect you from STIs, such as chlamydia and HIV. Only a condom will do this.

How do I take Maexeni?

Always follow instructions contained in the patient leaflet. If you have any doubts, consult with your doctor.

A summary of how to take this contraceptive follows:

  • you should take one pill around the same time every day
  • swallow pills whole with water (do not break, chew or crush them)
  • you should take pills for 21 days
  • after 21 days have a 7 day break where you take no pills, during this time, you should have a withdrawal bleed
  • take the next pill on the 8th day, even if you are still bleeding
  • if instructions have been followed correctly, you will be protected during the 7-day period

What are the possible side effects?

Everyone reacts differently to hormonal contraceptives, which is why it is a medical and legal requirement to first be seen and monitored by a doctor before you are prescribed online.

You may suffer side effects not listed below. If this is the case, you should seek further medical advice. Especially, if the reaction is distressing or you suspect it poses a risk to your health.

The most commonly reported side effects include:

  • acne
  • fluid retention
  • headaches
  • metrorrhagia
  • nausea
  • weight increase

You should also report any unexplained vaginal bleeding to your doctor.

If you believe you are suffering an allergic reaction to this contraception (symptoms include difficulty breathing, swelling of the lips, throat and tongue and rashes), seek immediate medical attention.

What precautions should I take?

Before starting any new treatment, you should always inform your doctor of any medical conditions you suffer from as well as any medications you are taking.

Various medications can interact negatively with Maexeni, including certain treatments for epilepsy, tuberculosis and HIV, as well as St John’s wort, some antibiotics and some sedatives.

Before you order, please list anything you are taking in our online consultation.

There are a number of conditions that preclude the use of Maexeni and other combined hormonal contraceptives. You should avoid this medication if any of the following apply to you:

  • you have ever experienced blood clots or deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
  • you suffer from any blood disorders or any disorders that could affect clotting
  • you have ever suffered angina, heart attack or stroke
  • you have long QT syndrome or other heart conditions
  • you have high blood pressure
  • you have diabetes
  • you have high cholesterol
  • you have ever suffered migraine with aura
  • you have ever been diagnosed with breast cancer
  • you have ever had any liver conditions
  • you are aged 35+ and are a smoker, or stopped smoking within the past year
  • you are aged 50+
  • you are allergic to any of the ingredients of this treatment (ingredients will be listed in full in the patient information leaflet)

You should have regular check-ups with your GP whilst taking any medication on a long-term basis. You should also inform them if you have any upcoming surgery, as you may need to stop taking the pill to reduce the risk of blood clots.

You should also examine your breasts regularly to check for any abnormalities that could indicate cancer.

Can I buy Maexeni online?

Yes, you can buy Maexeni online; however, you must first complete a consultation. This is a medical requirement and gives our doctors the opportunity to assess your overall health.

If your order is approved, we will ship your contraception with complimentary next-day delivery.

  • I use the Nexplanon implant and unfortunately it can cause non stop bleeding for months, so Maexeni stops that and I can live a normal life. So glad it exists! :D

  • Maexeni helps my body not bleed all the time due to a Nexplanon implant. So I'm pretty happy about that! 😁

  • Never had an issue with this pill after 6 years, works perfectly for me. But again, everybody is different!
