Prescribed contraception is used by millions of women worldwide to ensure protection against unwanted pregnancies.
Mercilon is a combined contraceptive pill which contains two synthetic hormones, a Progestogen (Desogestrel) and Oestrogen (Ethinylestradiol). The reversible contraception doesn’t interrupt sex and can make periods lighter, more regular and less painful.
The Mercilon pill prevents ovulation - the release of an egg from the ovaries - and thickens the mucous lining of the cervix, making it uninhabitable for sperm. The hormones also affect the lining of the womb to make it less likely that an egg will be able to implant itself.
When used correctly, Mercilon is 99% effective at preventing an unwanted pregnancy.
Please be aware that Mercilon does not protect you against sexually transmitted diseases. Only condoms are effective at preventing the spread of STDs.
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.
Oral contraceptives only provide protection if taken regularly.
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.
You should speak to your doctor before taking Mercilon if:
It is important that you are able to identify the side effects of your prescribed medication. If anything seems out of the ordinary, seek medical intervention.
Side effects include:
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.

What should I do if I miss a pill?
If you forget to take the pill by less than 12 hours, take the forgotten pill and continue the strip as normal. You should still be protected in this case.
If you forget to take the pill by more than 12 hours, take the last missed pill straight away and continue the strip as normal. You may not be protected in this case and additional contraceptive methods, such as condoms, should be used.
Can I take Mercilon after having a baby?
If you are not breast feeding, you should be able to take Mercilon more than 3 weeks after giving birth. You will need to use protection for the first week of taking Mercilon.
What do I do if I accidentally take two pills in one day?
Taking more than one pill by accident shouldn’t cause any harm. You may feel sick or experience bleeding. Talk to your doctor if you have taken more than one contraceptive pill.
