Order the micro-pill Mercilon online

The contraceptive pill Mercilon provides safe protection against pregnancy. If you are already using Ovranette you can order the follow-up prescription online at Apomeds that connects you to experienced doctors and a mail-order pharmacy. You will receive the birth control pill directly to your home within 24 to 48 hours.

Mercilon is the only birth control pill on the market with only 0.02 mg of estrogen. This is why this mini-pill is prescribed very often as it is well tolerated and a safe contraceptive method.

What is Mercilon?

Mercilon is a hormonal combination in low dosages. The contraceptive contains the luteal hormone or progesterone called desogestrel and the estrogen called ethinyl estradiol.

This contraceptive pill is the world's first ovulation inhibitor with only 0.02 milligrams of ethinylestradiol and is referred to as a so-called mini-pill, as the female body is as little as possible burdened with hormones and even leads to improvement in menstruation disorders. The Mercilon reviews are quite positive and the product is widely prescribed worldwide as it is a safe contraception.

The effect and dosage of Mercilon

The active ingredient ethinyl estradiol inhibits ovulation and suppresses the hormone which induces ovulation. More specifically, this substance prevents in the pituitary gland the formation of the hormone gonadotropin, which normally causes the triggering of ovulation. Ethinylestradiol deceives the female body by simulating the condition of a pregnancy in which the gonadotropin hormone is naturally inhibited.

On the one hand, desogestrel adapts the texture of the uterine lining in such a way that a potentially fertilized egg can no longer settle there and also influences the consistency of the mucus in the uterine canal so that the sperm can no longer penetrate there. In addition, this substance causes the egg to pass through the fallopian tube so fast that there is no time for fertilization.

How to take the contraceptive pill Mercilon

The pill is taken once a day with water. The intake should additionally always happen every day at the same time. Mercilon is taken for the period of 21 days and then there is a break of 7 days where the menstruation takes place. On day 8 a new package is started.
