How does Co-cyprindiol work
The active ingredient in Co-cyprindiol is Cyproterone acetate. Co-cyprindiol is a medicine called an anti-androgen. Levels of sex hormones change throughout the month when women have their usual menstrual cycle. The hormones cause the ovaries to release an egg; this process is known as ovulation and prepares the lining of the womb for possible pregnancy. If an egg hasn’t been fertilised at the end of the cycle, the hormones will drop and you will experience your monthly menstrual bleed.
When you take the pill on a daily basis, it contains hormones, which tricks your body into thinking you have already ovulated. This stops an egg from being fertilized and being released from the ovaries every month. Hormones will also increase the texture of mucus on the opening of your womb making it harder for sperm to reach an egg, which can result in pregnancy.
How do I take Co-cyprindiol
Co-cyprindiol is taken consecutively for 21 days with a 7-day break from taking any tablets. During this time you will experience a menstrual bleed and your hormones in your blood will drop. You must remember to start a new pack after the 7-day break even if you are still bleeding.
