How does Mercilon work?
Each box of Mercilon contains three strips of 21 tablets containing the active ingredients ethinylestradiol (20mg) and desogestrel (150mg). Once you have completed the course you will then have a 7 day break. During this time your hormone levels drop causing a withdrawal bleed similar to your normal period.
The pill prevents pregnancy in three ways by prevents the ovaries from releasing eggs, causing the lining of the cervix to thin stopping eggs from attaching and finally by causing thickening the mucus of the cervix which stops sperm from reaching an egg.
Always remember that the Pill will prevent unwanted pregnancy only and will not protect you from sexually transmitted diseases (STD’s).
