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.

More women today prefer to purchase Mercilon through the internet as it does not require them to seek consultation and prescription from a doctor.

How to buy Mercilon online?

If taken right on schedule, the medication becomes a dependable contraceptive and can be taken by more women. The combination pill is made with proestogen and artificial oestrogen. The combination induces the brain into thinking that ovulation has happened. This is the main reason that makes Mercilon almost 100% effective. Aside from this, the pill provides a number of other benefits.

What is Mercilon?

It has combined contents of progestogen and oestrogen making a combination medication. However, the dose of artificial oestrogen contained in this pill is comparatively lower than other medication. This makes the pill compatible for those suffering from side effects of the female hormone.

How does Mercilon work?

The pill contains two main ingredients. These are artificial progestogen desogestrel and man-made oestrogen ethinyl estradiol. The combination of both hormones produces three ways of protecting you from getting impregnated. The first manner happens when these hormones gives your brain the illusion that ovulation has already happened. Thus, it does not release an egg cell. This is the main function of the pill. If this fails, there are two other ways offered by the drug to prevent impregnation.

The next manner is that it makes the cervical fluid thick enough to make it tougher for sperm cells to get to the egg cell. Lastly, it thins out the womb lining to the point that it is impossible for egg cells to attach. All three guarantees users about 99% non-pregnancy while taking it.

How to take Mercilon?

You will receive three blister packs for the three month cycle and six for the six-month routine. Every pill has a corresponding day of when you should take it. This allows you to keep track of you consumption. Each blister pack includes 21 tablets with equal amounts of the active hormones.

  • Consume the pills once per day on the same time daily
  • Do this until you finish the blister pack
  • Rest for the next week
  • During the rest, you will undergo withdrawal bleeding which is just like having your period
  • Once the 7 day break is done, proceed with the next pack


Mercilon comes in one dose – 20 mcg of artificial desogestrel and 150 mcg of synthetic ethinyl estradiol. The combination has proven highly effective with barely any side effects reported.
