What is Microgynon?

Microgynon is a contraceptive pill. Like all other contraceptive pills, it is prescription-only medication. Containing both estrogen and progesterone, Microgynon is a highly effective contraceptive, which can be taken within a 12 hour window every day.

How does contraception with Microgynon work?

All contraceptive pills essentially work in the same way, even if they contain different hormones. All types of hormones used naturally occur in the body. Taking a synthetic version of these hormones tricks your body into behaving as if you were already pregnant, triggering a mechanism that prevents pregnancy. The mucus at the opening of the uterus thickens, which decreases the chance of sperm making its way to the egg. In addition, ovulation is suppressed.

Is there an advantage to taking Microgynon?

Both hormones in Microgynon have been known and used for many years. Millions of women worldwide have taken this contraceptive pill. Its safety has been established and its side-effects are known. Microgynon is also the most affordable contraceptive pill currently on the market. Compared to earlier pills, it contains a relatively low dose of estrogen, which many women prefer due to the lessened side-effects.

Does Microgynon help with period pain?

Like many other oral contraceptives, Microgynon can lessen period pain and irregular bleeding. Women who suffer during the time of their monthly period can benefit from taking an oral contraceptive, as periods are usually less painful and more regular in women who are taking a combined pill.

I smoke - can I take Microgynon?

There are a number of factors to consider before taking a contraceptive pill containing estrogen. In general, you should try to quit smoking before starting a course of any contraceptive pill. Your risk of thrombosis increases with age, the same goes for smoking and an unhealthy lifestyle. Taking an oral contraceptive also leads to a slight increase in the risk of thrombosis and blood clots, which is why DrEd will only prescribe a combined contraceptive pill for smokers under the age of 35.

I smoke and I am over 35 - is there a contraceptive pill I can take?

For smokers over the age of 35, a progesterone-only pill, also known as a minipill, can be a suitable option. The minipill does not contain any estrogen and its use is not associated with a higher risk of thrombosis and blood clots. Alternatively, you may wish to consider hormone-free methods of contraception such as the intrauterine coil, the diaphragma or, if you do not wish to have any more children, sterilisation.

Is Microgynon taken daily?

When preventing pregnancy with Microgynon, you have to take a pill every day, ideally at the same time. Depending on whether your course consists of 21 or 28 tablets you may or may not need to take a break.

How come there are blister packs with 21 and 28 tablets?

If you choose the 21 tablet option, you will take a pill every day for three weeks followed by a 7 day break. If you prefer taking a pill every day without a break, you can opt for a pack with 28 pills, in which case you will not need to take a break. The tablets to be taken during the fourth week of your cycle will be placebos, so they won’t contain any hormones. Some women find it helpful to take a tablet daily because they worry about forgetting to take the pill after the 7 day break.

I have forgotten a pill - how likely am I to get pregnant?

Whether you can get pregnant or not depends on how much time has passed since you have last taken your contraceptive pill. If you remember to take the tablet within 12 hours of the correct time you are still protected. Just take the tablet as soon as you remember and continue with your treatment at the usual time (even if this means taking two tablets in one day). If you are 12 hours late with remembering to take your pill, you may need to use an additional method of contraception for one week.

I have taken my contraceptive pill more than 12 hours late - do I need to use additional contraception?

Whether you are at risk of getting pregnant or not depends on your cycle. The patient leaflet of your contraceptive pill provides guidance on what to do if you forget to take the pill during any week in your cycle. Please follow the instructions carefully and speak to a doctor or gynecologist if you have any questions.

I have missed a period - am I pregnant?

If you have been taking Microgynon correctly and on a daily basis, your chance of being pregnant is extremely low. Especially during the first three cycles (i.e. months) of taking Microgynon, it is not unusual for periods to be lighter or later than usual because your body will be adjusting to the hormones during that time. If you are worried about a late or missed period you can use a pregnancy test to establish whether your contraception has failed. Alternatively, you may wish to speak to a gynecologist or GP.


Every tablet contains 0.03mg ethinylestradiol (an estrogen) and 0.15mg levonorgestrel ( a type of progesterone). Microgynon tablets are small, round and can be of a white or yellow colour.

Microgynon Side Effects

The following side-effects frequently occur when taking Microgynon (which means that they affect more than 1 in 100 women who take this pill):

  • nausea
  • abdominal pain
  • headache
  • depression, mood swings
  • tender breasts

For further information on possible rare side-effects, please read the patient leaflet of your pill.

Does taking Microgynon increase the risk of thrombosis?

All combined contraceptive pills, Miicrogynon included, are associated with a slight increase in the risk of thrombosis. Women who are already at risk, due to illness or previous medical conditions, should choose an alternative method of contraception. This is the case if you:

  • have a family history of thrombosis
  • are obese
  • are over 35 and smoke
  • are suffering from a condition affecting your lipometabolism
  • are suffering from hypertension
  • have a heart problem such as atrial fibrillations or cardiac valve disease

Women who suffer from severe migraines or high cholesterol are advised not to take Microgynon. The same applies to patients who have suffered a stroke in the past. If you have a medical problem affecting your liver or kidneys, your doctor might also advise you that Microgynon is not suitable for you. For further information, please read the patient leaflet or speak to your doctor.

Is it true that taking a contraceptive pill increases the risk of cancer?

Research suggests, that women over 40 who have been taking the pill for many years have a higher risk of being diagnosed with breast cancer. Whether there is a direct link between oral contraceptives and cancer has not yet been established.

Which types of medication can interact with Microgynon?

The following types of medication and ingredients can interact with Microgynon:

Phenytoin, Barbiturates, Primidon, Carbamazepin, Rifampicin
Oxcarbazepin, Topiramat, Felbamat, Griseofulvin, St.John’s Wort, Penicillin

If you are taking medication designed to induce liver enzymes you will need to use an additional method of contraception until 28 days after you have taken the last tablet of this medication.

If you have any questions regarding interactions and warnings please ask your doctor before taking Microgynon.
