Prescribed contraception is used by millions of women worldwide to ensure protection against unwanted pregnancies.
Mercilon contains two hormones, progesterone and oestrogen. For single hormone birth control see our birth control section. It is because of these two hormones that it is often known as the mini pill.
It is an effective method of contraception when taken orally.
The two hormones in Mercilon work together to significantly reduce the chance of a woman becoming pregnant. Oestrogen prevents the ovaries from releasing eggs and thickens the lining of the womb to prevent eggs from planting themselves into the womb. The progestogen makes the cervix uninhabitable for sperm by increasing the viscosity of the mucus lining. As as result, sperm cannot travel to the egg in order to fertilise it.
Mercilon can increase the risk of blood clots when taken for years at a time but it also prevents certain female cancers. Your prescriber or GP will assess whether the risks outweigh the benefits when prescribing you Mercilon. If Mercilon is not right for you we do have other contraceptive pills available that you can buy online now.
Oral contraceptives only provide protection if taken regularly. You should take Mercilon for 21 days out of every 28. On the 7 days you do not take Mercilon your period will occur.
If you miss a dose, or are taking antibiotics, you should use additional protection, such as condoms, for 7 days.
Your safety is important to us which is why we aim to provide you with as much information as possible so you stay safe when taking Mercilon or other birth control treatments on prescription.
