Brevinor contains the active ingredients ethinylestradiol and norethisterone and is a combined monophasic contraceptive pill. This highly effective medication is taken on a daily basis in the form of a 500mcg / 35mcg tablet to successfully prevent pregnancy. Brevinor is commonly referred to as 'the pill' and comes with additional benefits alongside the ability to effectively stop pregnancy. This includes:
Brevinor is over 99% effective at preventing pregnancy. All contraceptive pills have this level of effectiveness when they are taken correctly. If a woman falls pregnant on the pill it's most likely that she has forgotten a pill or been unwell.
Brevinor is a reliable contraceptive but there are some medicines that lessen its effectiveness.
The oestrogen in Brevinor may also interfere with some blood tests. Always mention that you are taking Brevinor if you are due any medical procedures.
Forgetting the pill is not the only way that pregnancy can happen. If you are sick or have severe diarrhoea, it can prevent Brevinor from working. You will need to use barrier contraceptives for seven days if you are sick. See below for detailed instructions under 'What to do it you miss a dose'.
Brevinor's main function is to prevent pregnancy but there are other advantages to the combined pill:
There are many types of combined contraceptive pills but all contain a mixture of oestrogen and progesterone hormones to prevent pregnancy. As well as combined pills there are 'mini pills'. These contain only progesterone and are sometimes known as POP or progesterone only pills. These are more suitable for some women who cannot tolerate oestrogen, women who smoke or women over 35.
The morning after pill is available online and over the counter as well. Women can use this if they have had unprotected sex. The morning after pill is called EllaOne in the UK and it works by delaying ovulation. It's most effective when taken quickly, but you can take it up to three days after unprotected sex.
Brevinor is a flat blue pill with SEARLE on one side and 'BX' on the other side. It's a combined contraceptive containing oestrogen and progesterone, but it has a lower amount than other brands which means you may experience fewer side effects.
Combined and mini pills are taken orally every day, but there are other ways to ingest hormones that don't involve a daily pill. The patch, the injection the Nuvaring, and the intrauterine system all deliver hormones that prevent pregnancy.
Hormone free options include the intrauterine device (that uses copper), condoms, caps, diaphragms or sponges, which keep sperm from entering the womb.
Brevinor is a hormonal combined oral contraceptive more commonly known as 'The Pill'. All combined pills contain synthetic progesterone and oestrogen in varying amounts. Brevinor contains 35 micrograms of a synthetic oestrogen called ethinylestradiol and 0.5 milligrams of a progesterone called norethisterone.
Brevinor works by preventing your ovaries from releasing any eggs. It also thickens cervical mucus to prevent sperm entering the womb and changes the womb lining so a fertilised egg can't implant there.
Brevinor is designed to be taken at the same time each day. The strip packets are printed with the days of the week to help you remember.
You start Brevinor by taking the first pill on the first day of your period and then one a day at the same time until the packet runs out. If you do this then you are covered against pregnancy straight away. You can take the pill on any day up to five days after you begin your period, but you will need to use barrier contraception for seven days.
When you have taken all 21 tablets you have a seven-day break. During this time you may have a withdrawal bleed similar to a period. Begin the second strip seven days later even if you are still bleeding.
You are covered against pregnancy during your seven-day break if you take the second packet on time.
Take the first Brevinor after you've finished your current strip of pills. You are protected immediately if you have taken them correctly.
Ask your doctor for advice but Brevinor can be taken 21 days after birth for immediate protection. After 21 days you will need to use barrier contraception for seven days.
Usually you are able to take Brevinor right away but ask your doctor for advice.
You should take your pill as soon as you remember and the following pill at the usual time.
If you follow these steps, it's highly unlikely you will fall pregnant. If you have sex before you remember you have forgotten your pill, you should consider emergency contraception.
Being sick or have a severe stomach upset can mean your pill is not properly absorbed. If you are sick or have diarrhoea within two hours of taking your pill, take another straight away. If you continue to be unwell you need to follow the missed pill steps above for each day you are ill.

Whilst the majority of women are able to use Brevinor safely, there are some women who should not take it. These include:
Your doctor will decide if Brevinor is safe for you if you have any of the following conditions:
No. All clinically proven medication requires a valid prescription and Brevinor is no exception. This is to confirm the medication is perfectly safe and highly effective for you to use. The prescription process will involve a short consultation – this is the same in person as well as online – and involves medical and personal question to ensure Brevinor is compatible with you. For STI medications, you must have tested positive before taking the treatment.
Brevinor is available on prescription only in the UK that is obtainable from a doctor. Once you have been safely prescribed it you can order online after a consultation. When buying Brevinor, this is easily obtained when completing our quick consultation that will take approximately five minutes. A certified doctor reviews this and then you can order Brevinor online.
When ordering from a certified online pharmacy, you can be ensured that your medication is safe. If the pharmacy doesn't ask you to complete essential health and medical question, however, this is a telltale sign that the website isn't certified. The website should also display clear signs that it is registered and approved by the relevant authorities. In the UK, this includes being registered by the MHRA and GMC.
All medication will be delivered in tamper proof packaging complete with the full patient leaflet, which confirms that the medication is clinically proven and highly effective.
