Ovranette contains two types of female sex hormones, estrogen and progestogen which prevent an egg being released from your ovaries so pregnancy is prevented and also makes the cervix fluid thicker making it more difficult for sperm to enter the womb.
Ovranette is a 21-day pill – take one each day for 21 days, followed by 7 days when no pill is taken.
Ovranette benefits include:
- one of the most reliable reversible methods of contraception if used correctly
- sex is not interrupted
- periods can be more regular, lighter and less painful
- may help with pre-menstrual symptoms.
Ovranette will not protect you against sexually transmitted infections, only condoms can help to do this. Ovranette must be taken as directed to prevent pregnancy.
