What is Mercilon?

Mercilon is a prescription birth control treatment which provides protection immediately when taken on the first day of your period. It has been clinically proven to be almost 100% effective in preventing unwanted pregnancy and as it only needs to be taken once a day. As well as being an effective way to prevent pregnancy, Mercilon can also be used to regulate periods and reduce premenstrual symptoms.

Mercilon is often prescribed as an alternative contraception treatment to Marvelon because of the lower amount of oestrogen. This reduces the chance of the contraceptive pill associated weight gain. Each pill contains 150mcg of desogestrel and 20mcg of ethinylestradiol.

What are the benefits of using these contraceptive pills?

If taken on the first day of your period, Mercilon pills provide immediate protection. It is almost 100% effective at preventing pregnancy and is one of the most convenient methods available, as it only needs to be taken once a day. Additionally, this contraceptive can help to reduce the pain you experience during your period and can minimize painful pre-menstrual symptoms.

This contraceptive is a popular alternative to Marvelon, as it contains a lower dose of synthetic oestrogen, making it more suitable for women who are sensitive to this hormone. The risk of weight gain is also greatly reduced, and some women may even experience some weight loss while using it.

How does Mercilon pill work?

The active ingredients in Mercilon work in three different ways.

  • Firstly it stops ovulation, which means that an egg doesn't get released for fertilisation
  • It stops the womb lining from thickening enough for an egg to grow in it, should an egg get released
  • It also prevents sperm from entering the womb by thickening the cervical fluid
