What is BiNovum?

BiNovum is a biphasic combined contraceptive medication containing the active ingredients ethinylestradiol and norethisterone. This medication is taken to successfully prevent pregnancy. BiNovum is taken once a day for 21 days (followed by a 7-day break) in the form of a 35mcg / 500mcg pill. Hormone levels while taking this medication will fluctuate according to each day of your menstrual cycle. BiNovum tablets essentially mimic your natural menstrual cycle.

BiNovum biphasic combined contraceptive pills also treat endometriosis, reduce the risk of experiencing cancer of the ovaries or womb lining and can regulate periods, making them lighter and far less painful.

How does BiNovum work?

BiNovum works by overriding the woman's normal menstrual cycle. In a normal cycle, levels of sex hormones change throughout. The egg is released from the ovaries and the womb is prepared for a possible pregnancy. If the egg is not fertilised by the end of the cycle, hormone levels decrease and the womb lining is shed.

What BiNovum does is that it tricks the body into thinking that the process of ovulation has already happened. This prevents the egg from ripening and from being released from the ovaries. In addition, the synthetic hormones increase the thickness of the mucus at the neck of the womb and make it difficult for the sperm to cross from the vagina into the womb. The quality of the womb lining is also changed and becomes less to enable a fertilised egg to be implanted.

How to take BiNovum?

BiNovum is a biphasic pill that comprises of a 21-day pack. Each pack has two types of tablets containing a different dose of hormones. There are seven white tablets that contain 35mcg of ethinylestradiol and 500 mcg norethisterone and 14 peach coloured tablets that contain 35mcg ethinylestradiol and 1mg norethisterone.

BiNovum is a one-a-day pill and is best taken at the same time every day for 21 days. There should be no interruption in taking the pill during this time period. This is followed by a pill-free period of 7 days. The pills are marked in the package and the sequence of taking them is as follows: take a white tablet for 7 days, then a peach coloured tablet every day for the next 14 days and then there are 7 days without any tablets. You always start a new pack after the 7 tablet free periods are over. You do not require any other type of contraception. After the 21 days of pills are over, you will notice some bleeding that starts on days 2-5 of the pill-free period.

If you are already on another hormonal contraceptive, BiNovum can be started at any time provided you are not already pregnant. You do not need to use any extra form of contraception during the switchover.

If you are on a non-hormonal type of contraception, then it is better to take BiNovum after the first 5 days of your menstruation. You will need extra contraceptive precautions for the next 7 days.

When to start BiNovum?

It is best to start taking BiNovum anytime during the first 5 days of your menstruation. This way you will not need to use any type of extra contraception. Binovum can also be started at any other time as long as you are sure you are not pregnant. However, if you start BiNovum at any other time, you do need some type of extra contraceptive precautions for the first 7 days after taking the pill.

If you have just delivered a baby, you can start BiNovum 21 days following delivery as long as you are not breastfeeding. This is only if you are ambulating and your pregnancy was uncomplicated. You do not need any other extra contraception. If you start BiNovum later than 21 days after delivery, then you will need some type of contraception for the first 7 days after taking the pill.

What happens if you miss a pill?

If you forget to take one pill, you should take it as soon as you remember it and your second dose at the regular time. This may mean that you take two pills at one time. You do not need any extra contraceptive if this happens. However, if you miss a pill for more than a day, then take that pill as soon as you can remember. You will need to use extra contraceptive precautions for the next 7 days.

BiNovum Side Effects

Just like other medications, there is a possibility that you will experience side effects when taking BiNovum combined contraceptive pills. The side effects associated with this medication tend to be mild in nature.

Some very common side effects include headaches, vomiting, dysmenorrhea or premenstrual syndrome.

Other common side effects include depression, feeling nervous, feeling dizzy, stomach ache, bloating, diarrhoea, acne, breast tenderness, gynaecological problems (e.g. secretions, discharge, and itchiness, heavy or missed periods, and withdrawal bleed when product is stopped), muscle spasms, back pain or pelvic pain.

Spotting, breakthrough bleeding and complete absence of flow may occur in some women. These bleeding problems are most common during the first 8-12 weeks of use and then gradually subside. However, if the bleeding irregularities persist, one should speak to their healthcare provider. Tests should be done to rule of a pregnancy or some type of mass.

The above symptoms do not occur in everyone and are most common when first starting the pill. Within the next 2-4 months, the symptoms subside in most women.

Some uncommon side effects include migraines, mood swings or changes, irritability and/or anxiety, skin problems, changes in skin colour, alopecia, nausea, weight gain, reduced appetite, swollen hands or feet, reduced sex drive, thrush, fatigue, feeling of being sick.

Some very rare side effects include abnormal cells in the cervix, increased appetite, difficulty losing weight, weight loss, gallstones, excessive hair growth and finding the use of contact lenses uncomfortable, cancer of the cervix, breast problems and vaginal dryness.

BiNovum Precautions

Before you buy BiNovum combined contraceptive tablets there are a number of precautions that you should take into account to ensure the suitability of this medication.

Precautions for the use of BiNovum include the following:

  • Prior to taking BiNovum, a complete history and physical exam is usually performed.
  • Even after the drug is prescribed, women have to see their healthcare provider on a regular basis to undergo tests like pelvic exam, Pap smear and blood pressure checks.
  • All women must undergo a pregnancy test before starting treatment.
  • Any female with undiagnosed vaginal bleeding must wait before starting the oral contraceptive.
  • To decrease the risk of blood clots, one should stop smoking and try and maintain a healthy body weight.
  • It is important for all women who take BiNovum to understand that the medication does not protect against any sexually transmitted disease including HIV.
  • Rarely women who take oral contraceptives for prolonged periods may develop a liver mass. This may present with pain just underneath the ribs on the right side. Sometimes the mass can lead to severe bleeding.
  • As there is a very small risk of developing breast cancer in women who use the birth control pill, regular breast exams are recommended. This risk is increased with the age of the female.
  • There are reports indicating that women who use the oral contraceptive pill may be more prone to the human papilloma virus, which is a risk factor for cervical cancer. Thus, regular Pap smear is recommended.
  • A few women may develop high levels of cholesterol, blood sugars and lipids after starting the birth control pill.
  • The birth control pill may also lead to development of gallbladder stones.
  • A headache may be worsened in some women and may require discontinuation of the pill.
  • If another form of contraception is required, it is best for the patient to use a condom or a cap spermicide.

Pregnancy & breastfeeding

In general, it is not recommended that women who take any medications breast-feed. BiNovum can pass into breast milk and it is not recommended that you take BiNovum during this time period.

BiNovum may interact with products that induce enzymes such as CYP3A4 which could decrease the effectiveness of the drug. Some examples include barbiturates, bosentan, carbamazepine, eslicarbazepine acetate, felbamate, (fos)aprepitant, griseofulvin, HIV protease inhibitors (e.g. nelfinavir, ritonavir, ritonavir-boosted protease inhibitors), HCV protease inhibitors (e.g. boceprevir, telaprevir), modafinil, non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (e.g. nevirapine), oxcarbazepine, phenytoin, rifampicin and rifabutin, rufinamide, St. John's Wort and topiramate.
