Ovranette is a reliable choice of combined contraceptive pill as it is easy to take and effective in 99% of cases.
What is the combined pill?
The combined pill contains synthetic versions of the female hormones oestrogen and progesterone, which women produce naturally in their ovaries. These hormones in the pill prevent your ovaries from releasing an egg (ovulation). They also make it difficult for sperm to reach an egg, or for an egg to implant itself in the lining of the womb.
|Are there other contraceptive methods I should know about?|
Long acting reversible contraceptive methods such as implants, contraceptive injections or an intrauterine device (IUD) can be more effective and more convenient than the pill for some women. Unlike condoms, the pill doesn't reduce your risk of getting an STI.
|How do I obtain an ongoing supply?|
If you’ve already bought your pill from us, you can order a further 3 or 6 month supply from your Patient Record if the doctor finds you suitable. After logging in go to the list of Suggested Treatments to find your pill. If you want to change your pill, please send a message to a doctor via your Patient Record.
Please note that combined contraceptives can cause your blood pressure to rise, which can be dangerous. Your blood pressure needs to checking before starting any combined contraceptive, and also within the first 3 months of taking it and once a year after that. Your local LloydsPharmacy will measure your blood pressure for free.
