Microgynon- Patient Leaflet
What is Microgynon?
Microgynon, from Bayer, is a combination of hormone and oral contraceptive for women
. The contraceptive contains the yellow-body hormone or progestin (levonorgestrel) and estrogen (ethinyl estradiol) in small doses.
This birth- control pill is the first ovulation inhibitor in the world with only 0.03 milligrams of ethinyl estradiol. It is known as a contraceptive mini-pill, with safe contraception, minimal hormones, and even leads to improvement in cycle disorders. The Microgynon user-reports are quite positive and the product is prescribed widely worldwide.
Effect and dosage of Microgynon
The active ingredient, ethinyl estradiol, prevents the formation of the hormone gonadotropin in the pituitary gland, which normally triggers ovulation. Ethinyl estradiol deceives the female body by simulating a pregnancy, in which gonadotropin is naturally inhibited.
Levonorgestrel adjusts the composition of the uterine lining so that a potentially fertilized egg cannot implant itself there, and influences the consistency of the mucus in the uterine canal so that the sperm cannot penetrate. In addition, this substance causes the egg cell to pass through the fallopian tube so quickly that there is no time for fertilisation.
The pill is swallowed once a day with water; if possible, always at the same time of day. One pill contains 1.5 mg.
