How does Marvelon work?

Combined oral contraceptive pills work to prevent pregnancy by changing the level of hormones in the bloodstream. The levels of sex hormones are responsible for key events during the female menstrual cycle. By changing this, Marvelon is able to offer almost complete protection against pregnancy. The main way that it does this is by making the body think that an egg has already been released in a process that is known as ovulation. By tricking the body in this way, it prevents ovulation from occurring.

Marvelon also works in a few other ways to ensure that the chance of conception is almost completely removed. It changes the lining of the womb, which is where any fertilised eggs would latch on and develop, making it almost impossible for this to happen. Finally, this treatment thickens the naturally occurring fluids that are found in the cervix. This makes it difficult for sperm to travel into the womb and fertilise an egg. The three-stage approach that Marvelon employs is one of the most effective ways for safely preventing pregnancy.

What are the benefits?

Marvelon can provide women with a wide range of benefits. It is primarily a contraceptive pill and in this regard offers almost complete protection against pregnancy. Marvelon can also help make periods lighter and less painful, providing relief for women who suffer from painful or heavy bleeds. This treatment has also been noted to reduce the visible symptoms of acne and alleviate premenstrual tension. It must be noted that this treatment is designed as a contraceptive pill and you should consult with your doctor before deciding to use it as a treatment for any other condition.

Who can use Marvelon?

Marvelon is generally well tolerated and can be used by most women over the age of 18. However, there are certain groups who may not be suitable for this medication due to their medical history. As with other combined contraceptive pills, this treatment should not be used by women who are either pregnant or breastfeeding. You should also not use this treatment if you are over 50. If you have reached this age and have not yet reached menopause, please consult with your doctor to find the right contraceptive treatment for you.

There are other groups who may not be suitable for Marvelon. You should consult with your doctor if you have a history of blood clots, diabetes, heart disorders, hypertension, migraines, breast cancer or unexplained vaginal bleeding. If any of these apply to you, please consult with your doctor before choosing a hormonal contraceptive method. When you buy Marvelon online at 121doc, you will be required to complete an online medical consultation.Our doctors will use the answers that you provide in determining whether this is a suitable medication for you. Please ensure that you include as much information as possible about your relevant medical history and any medications that you are currently taking.

How do you use it?

Marvelon is a monophasic contraceptive treatment, which means that each individual pack contains the same dose of hormones. As with other monophasic pills, the treatment consists of a 21-day cycle that is followed by a seven-day rest period. During the rest period, you may experience a withdrawal bleed but you will still be protected against pregnancy. You should start the next treatment cycle at the end of the seven days, regardless of whether you are still bleeding or not.

Taking your first Marvelon pill on the first day of your period will provide immediate protection. If you start at any other time in your menstrual cycle, you will need to use an alternative contraceptive method for the following seven days. We will provide you with a patient leaflet, which will have full instructions on how and when you should use this treatment. It will also have instructions on what to do if you miss any pills or do not take a pill at the correct time. Please ensure that you read the patient leaflet before you start this treatment.

Are there any side effects?

Marvelon is generally a well-tolerated medication that will not normally cause any adverse reactions. As with all prescription medication, there is a risk of side effects in very rare cases. Possible symptoms can include breast tenderness, headaches, weight fluctuations and nausea. If these occur, they are normally temporary in nature and should pass within a few days. If you experience any persistent side effects that cause you discomfort, please consult with your doctor.
