About Microgynon 30 ED

The Microgynon 30 ED pack includes three weeks’ worth of active pills and one week’s worth of larger inactive pills (containing no active ingredients).

For 21 days, take 1 active pill at the same time every day. Then take 1 inactive pill every day for 7 days – you may have a period during this time. The active pills should be taken the day after the last inactive pill. Every day, you should take a pill, which some women find easier to remember.

Microgynon 30 ED contains the hormones ethinylestradiol and levonorgestrel, which prevent your ovaries from releasing an egg (ovulation). They also make it more difficult for sperm to reach an egg or for an egg to implant in the womb lining.

Hormones are not present in the inactive pills. They are placebo pills that allow you to continue taking your pills on a regular basis.

Microgynon 30 ED is 99 percent effective in preventing pregnancy when taken correctly. Approximately 9 out of 100 women will become pregnant if it is not always taken correctly.

You may not be protected against pregnancy if you are vomiting or have severe diarrhoea. Continue to take the pill as usual if this happens, but use a condom while you’re sick. If this lasts longer than 24 hours, you should take the same steps as if you missed a pill.

Please keep in mind that you should only begin using Microgynon 30 ED if you are certain you are not pregnant.

If you start taking Microgynon 30 ED on the first five days of your period, you should be protected from pregnancy right away, assuming you don’t have a short or irregular menstrual cycle.

If you have sex after day 1 and have a short/irregular menstrual cycle, you must use condoms for 7 days. If you have sex in the first 7 days, your clinician will be able to tell you if you need to use additional contraception.

Many women do not have any negative side effects, but some do. Mood swings, headaches, tummy pain, and feeling sick are examples of these symptoms. Some women develop blood clots or high blood pressure on a rare occasion.

See the patient information leaflet for a complete list of side effects and how to use it correctly.
