Mircette Product Description
Mircette is a combined oral contraceptive containing two types of female hormones - desogestrel (synthetic progestogen) and ethinyl estradiol (synthetic estrogen).
The mechanism of Mircette action is based on suppression of gonadotropins, substances that stimulate the production of sex hormones. In addition, this contraceptive inhibits ovulation, changes cervical mucus consistency and endometrial cell structure. This hampers sperm from entering into the uterus and reduces the likelihood of implantation of a fertilized egg if fertilization is actually happened.
Mircette is prescribed to women of reproductive age to protect against unwanted pregnancy. In some cases, this contraceptive can be prescribed to female adolescents aged 16 years and older. To achieve the maximum contraceptive effectiveness, a Mircette pill should be taken once a day according to the instruction label and an interval of more than 24 hours between pills intake should be avoided.
If you miss a dose of Mircette pills, take the double dose on the same day. If two consecutive doses of oral contraceptive were missed within a week, take the double dose of Mircette two days in a row. Use extra contraceptives after the missed doses for at least a week.
In addition to the prevention from unwanted pregnancy, Mircette hormonal contraceptive beneficially affects the overall health. Clinical studies have shown that Mircette helps to relieve heavy and painful menstrual cycle. Mircette reduces the risk of ectopic pregnancy and the risk of non-cancerous cysts or lumps in the breast.
Mircette oral contraceptive should be stored in its original packaging to protect from bright light and at room temperature to 25°C.
