What are Mercilon contraceptive pills?

Mercilon contraceptive pills have been classified as a modern contraceptive product characterised by gentle activity and high efficiency, which is why this particular treatment is very often prescribed as the first birth control pill for teens and young women. The hormones included in Mercilon pills are balanced in a manner which does not cause side effects common with other pills, such as fluctuations in body weight. Clinical studies have shown that in 85% of cases there appear no noticeable changes in body weight. Mercilon pills contain two active ingredients – ethinyl estradiol and desogestrel – which are synthetic counterparts of female sex hormones. Taking Mercilon can help eliminate typical symptoms of female adolescence such as acne, increased production of sebum, or proneness to hirsutism.

What are the benefits of using Mercilon pills?

A safe dose of the hormones found in Mercilon pills guarantees that patients using these pills are not only protected against unwanted pregnancy, but also the pills reduce the risk of uterine and ovarian cancer, regulate the menstrual cycle, reduce menstrual cramps and excessive bleeding. Thanks to desogestrel, Mercilon pills are also one of the few available treatments which does not affect the levels of leptin, which informs the brain of the state of the body’s energy resources. Disturbed by the ingredients widely used in other pills, incorrect leptin levels tend to lead to overweight and obesity.

Most hormonal treatments contain substances that can cause side effects associated with their use. Despite its new-generation status, Mercilon is no exception, but the negative effects of using this form of treatment are noted much less frequently. The most frequent side effects include dizziness and nausea. If you experience any of these symptoms, contact your doctor or pharmacist. In such a case, the physicist may recommend pills containing a single active ingredient, or ones which do not contain the ingredient responsible for the occurrence of the side effects.

How should Mercilon be used?

It is best to start using Mercilon pills on the first day of the menstrual cycle, i.e. on the first day of bleeding. In this case, protection against unwanted pregnancy becomes active immediately, and there is no need to use additional contraception. Similarly to other hormonal pills, Mercilon pills should be taken for 21 days of the cycle, after which it is necessary to have a seven-day break, which in no way reduces the level of protection, and its sole purpose is to cleanse the body of the accumulated hormones.
During the seven-day break, there may occur withdrawal symptoms in the form of bleeding. This, however, does not constitute typical menstrual bleeding, as Mercilon prevents ovulation.
