How does Ovysmen work?
Ovysmen contains the ingredients ethinylestradiol and norethisterone, which are synthetic copies of the female sex hormones – oestrogen and progesterone. 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 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.
How do I take Ovysmen pills?
Ovysmen is an oral contraceptive tablet taken at the same time daily for 3 weeks followed by a 7-day rest. During this time you will experience a menstrual bleed and your hormones in the blood will drop. You must remember to start a new packet after the 7-day break even if you still have a period. This ensures you are protected from pregnacy. Ovysmen is a monophastic pill, which means every tablet contains the same dose of hormones.
