Marvelon is a combined oral contraceptive pill. Being under the category of monophasic and combined, this contraceptive contains both synthetic version of the female sex hormones oestrogen and progesterone and the same amount of these active ingredients are present in each tablet.
Marvelon is a combined oral contraceptive pill. One of the main benefits of using an oral contraceptive such as Marvelon is that it provides you with immediate and convenient protection against pregnancy if taken on the first day of your period. If it is not possible to take the pill on the first day of your period, you can take it up until the fifth day and will be fully effective after 7 days.
Apart from having a contraceptive effect, this birth control pill can also help:
Marvelon pills contain artificial versions of the female hormones oestrogen and progestogen. These hormones work together to provide protection against pregnancy in three different ways:
When used correctly, Marvelon is a highly effective contraceptive with neat 100% protection against pregnancy.
The Marvelon combined contraceptive is easy to take and a popular method for many women in the UK. It can be taken with or without food, with a sip of water to prevent pregnancy, and offer additional benefits such as alleviating cramps and mood swings caused by the natural menstrual cycle, reducing a heavy flow and improving the look of your skin.
Ideally, you should start taking Marvelon pills on the first day of your period for immediate protection against conception. It is a 21-day pill that you need to take for 21 consecutive days of your cycle, followed by a seven-day break before you start your next strip.
During the seven-day break period you will be completely protected, but you will experience a withdrawal bleed during this time. This bleeding replaces your period and is your body's way of removing the contraceptive hormones safely from your system. Because you are not ovulating, bleeding is usually less uncomfortable than during a normal period. You should take these birth control pills at the same time each day to maximize its effectiveness.
Like many other combined pills, Marvelon is only available in one dosage that has been clinically proven to be highly effective. Being a monophasic combined pill, each Marvelon tablet contains the same amount of hormones.
In Marvelon, this is 150mcg of synthetic progesterone (desogestrel) and 30mcg of synthetic oestrogen (ethinylestradiol). This is a particularly low dose of hormones, so the likelihood of experiencing side effects is that much slimmer.
Most women over the age of 18 can safely purchase and use the Marvelon contraceptive pill. However, there are certain health conditions and medications with which this contraceptive cannot be used.
