About Product

What is Ovranette?

Ovranette is a combined hormonal contraceptive pill which contains two hormones; progestogen and oestrogen. Hormonal contraceptives are used by women all over the world as a reliable and reversible form of contraception.

Ovranette is also used for the treatment of irregular periods, dysmenorrhoea, endometriosis and pre-menstrual tension.

To buy Ovranette online from Prescription Doctor, just complete our online questionnaire for our doctor to review. If our doctor deems the treatment suitable for you, they will issue a prescription for our UK GPhC registered pharmacy to fulfil. If your order is approved before 3pm, your order can be dispatched the same day for a next-day delivery.


How does Ovranette work?

Ovranette contains two hormones logestrogen and ethinyldiesterol, synthetic analogues of progestogen and oestrogen respectively. The combined hormonal pill overrides the natural menstrual cycle of females and protects against getting pregnant.

The hormones inhibit the ripening and release of an egg from the ovaries every month – a process known as ovulation. Ovranette increases the mucus in the neck of the cervix which decreases the chances of sperms to reach the egg through the vagina, as it hinders the motility of the sperm cell. It also reduces the thickness of the uterine lining and makes it difficult for the fertilised egg to implant in it.

Together, these mechanisms effectively reduce the chances of becoming pregnant.

While Ovranette can reduce your risk of becoming pregnant, it does not prevent sexually transmitted infections - only condoms can do this.


How to take Ovranette?

Ovranette comes in a strip of 21 pills, with each pill marked with the name of a weekday on the blister pack. Start taking the pills marked with the correct day. Follow the direction of the arrows marked on the strip and take the next pills accordingly.

Take the pills every day at the same time for the next 21 days.

After finishing the strip, there will be a pill-free week. You will have bleeding in these seven days like a regular menstrual period. Start the new pack on the 8th day and again take the 21 tablets. Sometimes your bleeding may not be finished on during seven days of pill-free week, even then it is mandatory to start the new pack without any delay.

If you take all the pills regularly for 21 days, you will always start the new pack every time on the same day of the week.

If you are a new user to Ovranette take your first pill on the first day of your period and then complete the cycle of 21 tablets. By starting in this manner, you are straight away protected against pregnancy with your first pill.

But if you start taking Ovranette on any other day of your period, you will need contraception like condoms, until you have taken seven pills in a row without missing a single pill.

When switching to Ovranette from other hormonal contraceptives, it is best to seek advice from your family planning nurse or doctor.

Frequently asked questions

What if I miss a pill of Ovranette?

If you miss a pill for less than 12 hours and take it during this time duration, you still have protection against pregnancy.

If you have missed a pill for more than 24 hours, take it as soon as you remember, which may mean taking two tablets at the same time. If the missed pill is from the first week of the 21-pills strip, then you have to adopt non-hormonal contraceptive methods like condoms for the next seven days while having sex. Once you have taken seven pills in a row after the missed pill day, you are safe from unwanted pregnancy. Same is the case with missing more than one pills. Take the last missed pill leaving the previous ones and continue for seven days.

If the current pack is finished before completing seven tablets after a missed pill, start a new pack. Do not take seven days pill-free break and complete the next pack. You will have a pill-free week and menstrual bleed after completing the second pack.

Another way in which the contraception might be decreased is if you are sick due to diarrhoea or vomiting within 4 hours of taking the tablet. It may be due to reduced absorption of medicine in the gut. Take another pill once you feel stable and continue taking the other pills at regular time.

What to do If I take more Ovranette than I should?

It is unlikely that taking pills more than a prescribed dose will cause any harm to you. But if you feel any discomfort, talk to your doctor and pharmacist for prevention.

Does Ovranette affect my ability to drive or operate machines?

It is unlikely that Ovranette will affect your ability to drive or operate machinery.

If you experience any side effects which might impact your ability to concentrate, such as dizziness or fatigue, do not drive or operate machinery until you feel it safe for you to do so.

Can I drink alcohol while taking Ovranette?

There is no data available that suggests Ovranette has an interaction with Alcohol. However, excessive alcohol consumption could exacerbate side effects or induce vomiting, which may impact the efficacy of the pill.

Always drink responsibly while taking Ovranette.
