Marvelon is a combined contraceptive pill. It mimics two hormones; progesterone and oestrogen.
Like other combined oral contraceptives (COCs), Marvelon is reliable and reversible. When used correctly, it is 99% effective at preventing unwanted pregnancy.
In addition to being an effective birth control pill, Marvelon can also reduce premenstrual symptoms and make your periods more regular and less painful.
While Marvelon can prevent pregnancy, it does not prevent sexually transmitted infections (STIs) such as chlamydia, gonorrhoea or HIV. To prevent the transmission of STIs, you should use condoms.
Marvelon contains two ingredients that mimic the natural female sex hormones.
Marvelon works by restricting the release of an egg from the ovaries and making it harder for sperm to swim to the egg.
These two actions reduce the risk of pregnancy.
If you start taking Marvelon on the first day of your period, you will be protected straight away.
You must take Marvelon as instructed by your doctor to prevent unwanted pregnancy.
Marvelon is available in strips of 21 pills marked with the days of the week.
Swallow each pill whole with a glass of water. Do not crush or chew the pills.
If you are just starting to take Marvelon, or are beginning taking Marvelon again after a break, there are 2 ways you can begin taking it:
Take the first Marvelon pill on the first day of your period. If you start taking Marvelon on the first day of your period, you will be protected right away.
If your period has already started, begin taking Marvelon on the 5th day of your period, regardless of whether your bleeding has stopped. You must use additional contraception until you have taken the first 7 pills correctly.
If you are taking another contraceptive pill, speak to your doctor before switching to Marvelon.
If you are taking a 21-day pill, begin taking Marvelon the day after the end of your previous strip. You will be protected from taking the first pill but will not have a withdrawal bleed until you finish your first strip of Marvelon.
If you are taking a 28-day pill, start taking Marvelon the day after your last active pill. You will be protected straight away but will not experience a withdrawal bleed until you complete your first strip of Marvelon.
If you are taking a progestogen-only pill (mini pill or POP), start taking Marvelon on the first day of bleeding, even if you have taken a progestogen-only on that day. In this case, you will be protected right away. If you don't have a withdrawal bleed while taking the progestogen-only pill, you can stop taking it and start taking Marvelon the next day. However, you will need to use additional contraception, such as condoms, for the first 7 days.
If you are unsure when to start taking Marvelon, or how to take Marvelon, speak to your doctor or ask a pharmacist for advice.
If you miss a pill, follow the instructions in the patient information leaflet.
If you miss any of the pills and do not experience a withdrawal bleed in the first pill-free break, you might be pregnant. Speak to your doctor as soon as you can, or do a pregnancy test.
If you delay the start of the new strip or extend your 7-day pill-free break, your protection may be reduced. If you had sex during the 7-day pill-free break, speak to your doctor or a pharmacist for advice. You may require emergency contraception. You should use additional contraception for 7 days.
