Rigevidon is a popular combined oral contraceptive pill. It contains two ingredients to help prevent ovulation, and also to make it harder for sperm to reach the uterus. These are ethinylestradiol and levonorgestrel, which are synthetic versions of the naturally occurring female sex hormones, oestrogen and progesterone.

As with any medication, there are potential side effects and risks associated with this medicine. It is important to continue to have all your regular check-ups with your own GP each year to make sure it is safe to continue taking Rigevidon.

How Does Rigevidon Work?

Rigevidons use as a contraceptive has three main mechanisms of action. The main effect of the drug is to prevent ovulation each month. This is the process in which an egg is released. It also works by thickening the natural mucus which occurs in the womb, thus making it more difficult for sperm to cross into the womb to fertilise an egg. Finally, it makes it harder for an egg to implant in the womb, by thinning the lining of the womb.

What should I do if I miss taking Rigevidon?

If you've missed a dose of Rigevidon, you should take it as soon as you remember, and have your next dose as normal, even if this means taking two tablets at once. In this scenario, you will still be protected against pregnancy and do not require any extra precautions.

However, if you have forgotten to take 2 or more pills (or started your pack 2 days late), you will not be protected against pregnancy. You should take the missed pill as soon as possible, even if this means taking two tablets at once (but no more), and continue taking the tablets as normal until you complete the pack. You will not be protected from pregnancy for 7 days after remembering to take the missed pills, so you should use an alternative method of contraception (e.g a condom), or refrain from sex.
