Benefits of using a contraceptive pill

Unplanned pregnancy is scary for any couple. Contraceptive pill is a reliable way to get rid of the fear of pregnancy. This article discusses a mini-pill (Micronor) and two combined contraceptive pills (Cilest and Microgynon). Read further to know how they differ from each other.

Contraceptive methods have gained lot of importance as the alertness for sexual prevention has increased even in young sexually active couples. Condoms existed for a long time as the first preference of men, but the fear of contraceptive accidents such as tear or slip led to switching over to a much safer and reliable way known as contraceptive pills. These pills have given women the liberty of controlling whether they want to get pregnant or not. Contraceptive pills are either combination pills or mini-pills. The combinations pills are those which contain synthetic forms of oestrogen and progestogen hormones, while mini-pills are those which contain only progestogen hormones.

Micronor mini pill is a popular mini-pill which is composed of only progestogen hormones. This pill is prescribed to women who are breastfeeding, above 35 years of age, are consistent smokers or sensitive to the effects of oestrogen hormone. It is an effective method for preventing pregnancy. This medication prevents pregnancy in two ways. Firstly, the mucus of the cervix is thickened by the synthetic progestogen so that it becomes difficult for a sperm to penetrate inside the womb and fertilise an egg. Secondly, the womb lining is thinned in such a way that a fertilised would not be able to attach itself and grow there. This pill should be taken every day for 28 days of your menstrual cycle without any break. It is prescribed to women who are above 18 years of age and do not have a past medical history of liver disease, heart disease, diabetes, cancer or migraine.

Cilest pill is a monophasic combination pill which means it contains a steady amount of both the hormones for the complete month. It is taken for 21 days in a row following a break of seven days. Ideally, this pill works better if it is taken on the first day of your period. If in any case you are unable to take it on the first day then you can delay till the fifth day of your period, taking an extra precaution by using barrier protection for the next seven days. The primary active components of this medication are ethinylestradiol and norgestimate.

Microgynon is another low dose combination pill which has proved to be nearly 100% successful in preventing pregnancy. This pill contains artificial female sex hormones, progestogen and oestrogen. This medication stops pregnancy in three ways. Initially it prevents ovulation so that no egg is available for fertilisation. It also thickens the cervical fluid so that a sperm finds difficult to enter the womb. Finally it alters the womb lining in such a way that no egg is able to attach and grow inside. You can buy this medication from any of the registered online clinics after an online consultation with an authorised doctor. The medication is delivered to your doorstep in a short time. It should be noted that the contraceptive pill should not be purchased without a proper consultation with doctor.
