What is Marvelon 21-day used for?

Marvelon, with the generic name Desogestrel and Ethinyl estradiol, is an oral birth control pill used to prevent pregnancy. This type of medication does not protect users from human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection and other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). This is classified as an oral contraceptive combination.

This is available in Marvelon 21-day 0.15/0.03 mg tablets.

How does Marvelon 21-day work?

This oral contraceptive is made of two types of hormones that prevent conception. It prevents a woman’s egg from fully developing every menstrual cycle. Through this, the egg can no longer meet the sperm. Thus, fertilization will be prevented.

How to use Marvelon 21 day

As this form of contraception is not 100% effective, you must talk to your doctor about other options. You must also know how to use this medication, as compliance is important for this product’s effectiveness.

Most physicians advise women to use the medication on the first day of menstruation. This is then administered once a day for 21 days, followed by 7 days after taking no pills. The medication is resumed after 7 days. Take the prescription pill at the same time each day and avoid missing your doses. Doing so could lead to ovulation and pregnancy. Do not change the Marvelon dosage prescribed to you.
