Everyday contraception such as the pill or mini pill is an ideal way to protect against unwanted pregnancy while still enjoying an intimate sex life. Although the pill won’t protect against sexually transmitted diseases it can offer peace of mind for those who eschew other contraception methods such as condoms.
Prescription contraception is used by millions of women worldwide to ensure protection from unwanted pregnancies. It is essential for a confident, enjoyable sex life.
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 contained in Mercilon prevents women becoming pregnant when taking this combined pill. It works by stopping the release of an egg from the ovary, thus being no egg to fertilise when the sperm reaches the uterus. It also makes conditions inhabitable for sperm in the cervix which includes thickening the lining of the cervix which stops sperm being able to travel. This combination of methods ensures it is effective against unwanted pregnancy and is the contraception of choice for thousands of women.
Mercilon can increase the risk of blood clots when taken for years at a time but it also provides some protection against 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 you will experience your period.
If you miss a dose make sure you use a condom for seven days to be safe. You should also use extra protection if you are taking any antibiotics.
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.
