Microgynon, is a popular and effective contraceptive pill. It contains two ingredients to help prevent ovulation, and also to make it harder for sperm to reach the uterus.

Like with any medication, there are risks involved, and so you should have all your regular check-ups with your own GP each year, to make sure it is safe to continue taking Microgynon.

Microgynon is taken once daily, at around the same time each day. Microgynon is a 21 day pill pack, meaning you take 21 tablets consecutively (starting on day 1 of your menstrual cycle), followed by a 7 day, pill free break.


What is Microgynon?

Microgynon is a combined oral contraceptive pill, used by millions of women all over the world.

What is in Microgynon?

Microgynon contains two synthetic hormones, oestrogen and progesterone

When do I take Microgynon?

Microgynon is best taken at the same time each day, every day, for 21 days of your cycle. Microgynon ED comes with an additional 7 inactive pills, which can be taken to help keep track of your pill free days.

How does Microgynon work?

Microgynon works by tricking the body into thinking an egg has been released, by keeping hormone levels high. This prevents an egg being released into the ovaries each month. The hormones also work by thickening the mucus lining of the womb, making it more difficult for sperm to pass through.

How long after taking Microgynon are you protected?

If you started taking Microgynon on days 1-5 of your period, you will be protected immediately in your next cycle. If you started taking Microgynon after day 5, you should use additional contraception measure for SEVEN DAYS, until Microgynon will offer protection against pregnancy.

What do I do if I miss a Microgynon dose?

If you miss a microgynon pill, you should take this as soon as possible, even if it means taking two pills at once. You can then continue taking your pills as normal, and still be protected. For a more detailed look at scenarios, see our missed pill guide.

Are Microgynon and Levest the same?

Yes, both Microgynon, Levest, Rigevidon and Ovranette pills, all contain exactly the same hormones at the same strength, and work in the same way.
