Working

For preventing ovulation, Ovral pills disallow release of mature eggs from the female’s ovaries. The sperm is restricted from seeking eggs by cervical mucus thickening, which shuts out sperm from getting in uterus. Thus, fertilization does not occur. Lastly, the medicine alters uterine endometrial so as to cut off the possibility of implantation. Later to the medicinal treatment, withdrawal bleeding occurs similar to periods.

Dosage

A female can choose either to take 21-day Ovral birth control course or 28-day format. In both the treatments, she needs to take one active tablet from the strip everyday, at same timing. The tablet is consumed with water, orally.

  • In 21 day regimen, the woman does not use any other contraceptive medicine for the rest one week, during which she experiences periods.
  • In 28 day regimen, she takes orally one inert tablet from the medication pack everyday for the next seven days. The female experiences periods in this duration.

Side Effects

Although Ovral birth control is safe and has success rate of more than 92%, it may result few side effects such as abdominal pain, spotting, insomnia, breakthrough bleeding, nausea, breast tenderness, mood swings, oedema, headache etc. The effects are easy to control, and rarely caused.
