Contraceptive Pills

UK Meds asked our favorite doctor, Dr. Christian Jessen, to explain Contraceptives. Below is what he has to say.

Contraceptive pills, or birth control pills are a simple and effective way to prevent pregnancy. They can also help make your periods more regular and ease menstrual cramps. They can even, in some cases, help with acne. If you follow instructions properly and you use contraceptive pills in the right way they can provide reliable protection against pregnancy.

They work by stopping ovulation, if there is no egg being released then there is nothing to be fertilized by a sperm. Most birth control pills contain synthetic forms of the female hormones estrogen and progesterone. You can order contraceptive pills by UK Meds, a prescription is required but if you don't have one, the online doctor's service at UK Meds can assist you so you can order your contraceptive pills online, such as Brevinor, Cerazette, Cerelle, Cilest, Dianette, Evra Patch and many others from the convenience of your home.

What is the Evra Patch?

Ortho Evra or simply Evra is a contraceptive patch designed to prevent pregnancy. This patch is easy to use – simply stick it on the skin and its main ingredients, two artificial hormones (namely ethinylestradiol and norelgestromin), are released through the skin pores and then will go through the bloodstream with the aim of stopping the ovulation. The Evra patch has the dimension of 5 cm x 5 cm. It should be used during the 21 days of menstrual cycle, and its efficacy is ensured for the entire duration of the menstrual cycle. The recommended dosage is 203 mcg/34 mcg.

How does the Evra Patch work?

Every patch has the synthetic oestrogen called ethinylestradiol and the synthetic progestogen called norelgestromin. These substances work together in safely modifying environment of the reproductive system so that conceiving is nearly impossible.

The progestogen substance works to thicken the cervical mucus so sperm cells will have difficulty in reaching the womb. It also prevents the thickening of the womb lining so the egg cell will not attach and thus will not be fertilised by the sperm cell. The oestrogen component prevents the ovaries from releasing mature egg cells because it tricks the body into thinking that ovulation has already happened and thus, no egg cells are released to be fertilised.

How do I use the Evra Patch?

Follow these practical approaches in using Evra patches:

  • One Evra patch is good for a week’s protection.
  • After one week, replace the old one with a new patch. This goes for three weeks and on the fourth week, take a break from using the patch. Continue to use the next week.
  • During the break, there is a possibility of withdrawal bleeding.
  • Apply the patch during the first day of the menstrual cycle.
  • It is still possible to apply the patch even after five days have elapsed since the first day of the cycle, but use another birth control method for the first seven days.

Side effects and precautions

Every single Evra patch has ingredients that work similarly to contraceptive pills. Therefore, you may experience the following side effects: mood changes, thrush, acne, dizziness, and muscle spasms, skin itching, weight gain and tiredness. Do take note that Evra patches contain higher dosages of oestrogen and there can be oestrogen-related side effects such as water retention and headaches.

Other negative side effects of this patch include increased fat levels in the blood, swelling, anxiety, uncontrollable emotions, reduced libido, vaginal bleeding or dryness or insomnia. Most of these side effects are uncommon and if persist, stop using the patch and contact your doctor immediately.

Consider the following precautions before getting your hand with an Evra patch:

  • If you have thrombosis, liver disease, severe migraines, high blood pressure, breast cancer or gallbladder disease. Consult a doctor first.
  • If you are diagnosed obese and diabetic, do not use this.
  • Smoker or those in aged 35 and above and smoker, do not use this.
  • Breastfeeding women should not this patch.
