Description

Ovranette is a combined oral contraceptive pill (‘the Pill’). You take it to stop you getting pregnant. Your doctor may also prescribe Ovranette for some other conditions such as:

• painful menstruation (dysmenorrhea) or pre-menstrual tension
• endometriosis
• heavy or irregular bleeding from the womb (uterus).

This contraceptive contains two types of female sex hormones, oestrogen and progestogen. These hormones prevent an egg being released from your ovaries so you can’t get pregnant. Also, Ovranette makes the fluid (mucus) in your cervix thicker which makes it more difficult for sperm to enter the womb. Ovranette is a 21-day pill – you take one each day for 21 days, followed by 7 days when you take no pills.

The benefits of taking the Pill include:

• it is one of the most reliable reversible methods of contraception if used correctly
• it doesn’t interrupt sex
• it usually makes your periods regular, lighter and less painful
• it may help with pre-menstrual symptoms.

Ovranette will not protect you against sexually transmitted infections, such as Chlamydia or HIV. Only condoms can help to do this.

Ovranette needs to be taken as directed to prevent pregnancy.

Warnings

Talk to your doctor, pharmacist or family planning nurse before taking Ovranette.
It’s important that you understand the benefits and risks of taking the Pill before you start taking it, or when deciding whether to carry on taking it. Although the Pill is suitable for most healthy women, it isn’t suitable for everyone.

Tell your doctor if you have any of the illnesses or risk factors mentioned in this leaflet.

Before you start taking the Pill

• Your doctor will check/confirm that you are not pregnant then ask about you and your family’s medical problems and check your blood pressure. You may also need other checks, such as a breast, abdomen or pelvic examination but only if these examinations are necessary for you, or if you have any special concerns.

While you’re on the Pill

• You will need regular check-ups with your doctor or family planning nurse, usually when you need another prescription of the Pill.
• You should go for regular cervical smear tests.
• Check your breasts and nipples every month for changes – tell your doctor if you can see or feel anything odd, such as lumps or dimpling of the skin.
• If you need a blood test tell your doctor that you are taking the Pill, because the Pill can affect the results of some tests.
• If you’re going to have an operation, make sure your doctor knows about it. You may need to stop taking the Pill about 4–6 weeks before the operation. This is to reduce the risk of a blood clot. Your doctor will tell you when you can start taking the Pill again.

Some women using hormonal contraceptives including Ovranette have reported depression or depressed mood. Depression can be serious and may sometimes lead to suicidal thoughts. If you experience mood changes and depressive symptoms contact your doctor for further medical advice as soon as possible.
