Marvelon is a two-component treatment that protects women using it against unwanted pregnancy in three different ways.

Marvelon pills contain two active ingredients – ethinyl estradiol and desogestrel – which are synthetic counterparts of natural female hormones: oestrogen and progesterone, respectively.

What are the benefits of using Marvelon?

Marvelon hormonal pills have been designed for women who are aware of the risks of having sex without protection. The pills contain two active ingredients: ethinyl estradiol and desogestrel, which are synthetic equivalents of natural female hormones: oestrogen and progesterone, respectively. Taking Marvelon contraceptive pills works in a way similar to most birth control pills. Taking these contraceptive pills makes the body receive a signal of ovulation taking place, and consequently there is no release of an egg cell. The active substances contained in the pill additionally increase the viscosity of the cervical mucus, which creates an obstacle for sperm travelling towards the uterus and ovum. In the course of taking Marvelon contraceptive pills, there occurs a change in the degree of endometrial blood flow, which reduces the likelihood of implantation of a fertilised ovum.

How do Marvelon contraceptive pills work?

The synthetic hormones included in Marvelon pills block the production of their natural counterparts in the body, which prevents ovulation, i.e. the release of the ovum, from taking place. Thus, the chance of becoming pregnant is basically reduced to zero. The hormones also cause an increase in the density of the cervical mucus, which creates an obstacle for sperm travelling towards the egg cell.

How should Marvelon be used?

It is best to start using Marvelon 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, Marvelon 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 Marvelon prevents ovulation.
