What is Ovranette?
Ovranette tablets are hormonal contraceptives that combine two active ingredients, ethynylestradiol, a synthetic estrogen, and levonorgestrel, a synthetic progesterone.
Ovranette is used to prevent pregnancy. The use of Ovranette results in less painful, lighter, and more regular menstrual bleeding. This medication is at times prescribed for women who have problems with heavy, irregular, and painful periods.
How does Ovranette work?
Ovranette tablets contain the synthetic versions of estrogen and progesterone, two naturally occurring female sex hormones. The combination of the two hormones in Ovranette works by over-riding the normal menstrual cycle. During a woman’s menstrual cycle, the levels of sex hormone change throughout each month. The hormones cause the ovaries to release an egg during the process of ovulation and prepare the lining of the womb for the possibility of a pregnancy. At the end of each menstrual cycle, the levels of the hormones fall if the egg has not been fertilized, resulting in the shedding of the womb lining as a monthly menstrual period.
The daily dose of hormone provided by the Ovranette pill works mainly by tricking the body into believing that ovulation already occurred. This prevents the ripening and the subsequent release of an egg from the ovaries each month.
The hormones in Ovranette pills thicken the natural mucus at the neck of the womb to make it difficult for sperm to pass from the vagina canal into the womb and reach an egg to be fertilized. The hormones also change the quality of the womb lining, making it less conducive for the implantation of a fertilized egg.
What are the benefits of using Ovranette?
The main benefit of Ovranette pills is to prevent pregnancy from occurring. This is achieved through the following:
- Preventing the release of an egg from the ovaries
- Thickening of the mucus at the neck of the womb to make it difficult for sperm to pass through and fertilize the egg in the uterus.
- Making the lining of the womb not conducive to the attachment of a fertilized egg.
How do I take Ovranette?
Ovranette is a monophasic pill. Each tablet has the same dose of hormone in it as with the other tablets in the pack.
Take one tablet of Ovranette daily for 21 days with a one week break from pill-taking. During the one week break from the pills, the levels of hormones in the blood will drop, resulting in a withdrawal bleeding that is almost the same as your normal menstrual period. Start the next Ovranette pack after the seven pill-free days are over, even if you still observe that you still bleeding.
The Ovranette tablets come in a calendar pack with marking of the days of the week. The markings are for you to remember that you have to take the pill each day for the next three weeks, followed by a week off. You are still protected from pregnancy during the pill-free week as long as you took all the pills correctly and you start the next packet of the medicines on time.
To help you remember taking the pills, take the pill at the same time each day. Each Ovranette tablet is to be swallowed with a drink of water. You can take Ovranette with or without food.
You should start taking the pill on the first day of your menstrual cycle in order for the medication to protect you against pregnancy immediately. You don’t have to use any other method of contraception while you are taking Ovranette. If you have a very short menstrual cycle, you will not be protected from pregnancy if you will start taking the pills on the fifth day of your period.
You can start taking this pill at any time during your cycle if the doctor is convinced that you are not pregnant. Starting the pill at any other time in your cycle will not protect you from pregnancy. You might need to use other forms of contraception, such as the condom for the first seven days of taking the pill.
If you have just given birth and you are not breastfeeding, you can start taking the pill on the 21st day after giving birth. Use extra contraception such as a condom for the first seven days.
Starting to take the pill immediately after a miscarriage or abortion at under 24 weeks will immediately provide you with protection against pregnancy. If you start taking the pill more than seven days after a miscarriage or abortion, you should use extra contraception for the seven days of taking the pills.
If you forget to take a pill or start the pack of pills one day later, take the missed pill as soon as you remember even if you have to take two pills at the same time. Then continue taking the rest of the pack as scheduled. You are still protected from pregnancy and you don’t have to use extra contraception.
If you forget to take two pills or you start the new pack two or more days late, you will not be protected against pregnancy. Take the last pill that you missed together with the pill for the day, which means that you have to take two pills. Forget about the other pill that you missed. Then continue taking the rest of the Ovranette pills in the pack as scheduled. You should not have sex or use an extra barrier method of contraception such as condoms.
If you have less than seven pills remaining in the Ovranette pack after your last missed pill, finish the pack and start a new pack straight away without taking the seven day pill-free days.
If you vomit within two hours of taking a pill, the medicine may not be fully absorbed into the bloodstream. Take another pill as soon as you feel better and take the next pill at your usual time. You will still be protected against pregnancy.
Ovranette will not protect you against sexually transmitted infections. You need to use condoms for protection against sexually transmitted infections.
Women who are using Ovranette for the first time may experience irregularity in menstruation such as spotting, breakthrough bleeding or missed period. Consult your doctor if you experience persistent bleeding. If you don’t bleed for two consecutive months, use a test to make sure that you are not pregnant before you start the next month’s contraceptive cycle.
Ovranette tablets are designed to be taken one tablet each day for 21 days. It will be followed seven days of pill-free break.
