Binovum is a combined oral contraceptive pill that prevents pregnancy by overriding the body's natural hormone balance.
It does this by changing the environment of the reproductive system to make conception almost impossible.
BiNovum combined pill is a brand of contraception under the category of biphasic contraception as the level of hormones changes half way through, meaning you must take the BiNovum tablets in the correct order.
As it is a biphasic pill, the overall dosage of hormones that your body is exposed to is lower than that of monophasic pills, which helps reduce the risk of developing side effects. Women who buy BiNovum also find that their breasts are less likely to become painful, and it offers some protection against infections of the genital organs.
By increasing the progestogen half way through the 21-day cycle, it mimics the natural menstrual cycle more closely. Many women like the thought a contraception that impersonates the natural process, as it will cause minimal disturbance. In addition, those taking biphasic contraceptives find they experience fewer side effects, especially if they experience them with monophasic combined pills. Other benefits includes those associated with all hormonal contraceptives such as alleviating menstrual cramping and a heavy flow and regulating the time of the month to one lighter manageable period.
BiNovum combined pill contains two active ingredients; norethisterone (progestogen) and ethinylestradiol (oestrogen). As BiNovum tablets are biphasic, as mentioned, the level of hormones in the pills changes throughout the 21-day cycle. The level of oestrogen will remain the same in each, however it is the level of progestogen (norethisterone) that alters halfway through by increasing to mimic your natural cycle.
This means biphasic combined pills such as BiNovum must be taken in the correct order, however this is made simple by each blister pack clearly noted with the day and the pills containing different hormones are varying colours.
In terms of preventing pregnancy, BiNovum is over 99% effective when taken correctly, and it works on three various ways to do so. The first of which involves thickening the mucus of the cervix to make it almost impossible for sperm to reach the womb. BiNovum pills also stop an egg from being released by the Fallopian tubes, which means that if sperm can reach the womb, there won't be anything to fertilise. Lastly, it stops the womb lining from thickening, preventing conception because a fertilised egg can't implant itself in the womb and develop.
You need to take BiNovum pills in the correct order because the dosage differs between pills; taking the wrong pills in the wrong order will impact upon its effectiveness. The pack clearly shows which tablet you should start with, and indicates the order in which you should take the pills. The first half of the pack contains a lower level of progestogen whilst the second half increases.
During the 21-day break, you will experience a withdrawal bleed similar to a period. After seven days, continue with the next pack. Repeat this process until you no longer require pregnancy prevention, or are moving to a different contraceptive.
If you do forget to take a pill, you should take one as soon as you remember and continue with the pack as usual. Missing one or two BiNovum pill within 21 days will not affect the effectiveness of this contraceptive. If you miss three or more pills however, you won't be protected; you'll need to use a barrier contraceptive such as condoms for the next seven days. Take the last pill you forgot and continue with the pack as usual.
The dosages in each 21-day pack of BiNovum pills vary depending the time of the month you are taking them. At euroClinix, each BiNovum pack contains 21 active pills (some manufacturers provide 28 pills in each pack that includes seven inactive pills).
The first seven tablets contain 35mcg of ethinylestradiol and 500mcg of norethisterone. They are white, making it easy to distinguish which you should take first. The next 14 tablets contain the same amount of ethinylestradiol but a much lower level of norethisterone; 1mcg. These are peach or light orange in colour.

It's essential that you discuss your medical history with your doctor, because there are several conditions with which it might be unsafe these pills.
All hormonal contraceptives carry the risk that you could develop side effects, however these are usually light in temperament and temporary especially if they have occurred in the first three months of taking this contraceptive. The most commonly reported side effects include nausea, headaches, water retention, vaginal thrush and a decreased sex drive. If you do experience side effects, these should become milder with time as your body adjusts to the hormones. If they are not, or are severe in nature, contact your doctor to discuss further contraceptive options, which can include combined pills, mini pills or the vagina ring or patch.
