millinette pill

Millinette is an oral contraceptive pill, also known as a combined hormonal contraceptive (CHC), or ‘the Pill’. It is usually taken by sexually active women who don’t want to become pregnant. Millinette contains two types of hormone – ethinyl estradiol (oestrogen) and gestodene (progestogen). Together, these hormones prevent you from getting pregnant . Studies show that, only about 1 in 100 users of Millinette become pregnant from unprotected intercourse. This means that Millinette is around 99% effective in preventing pregnancies. It is quite normal to experience mild side effects when taking a CHC pill like Millinette. Changes to your weight, mood, and spotting (bleeding between periods) are the most commonly reported side effects of the contraceptive pill.

What Is Millinette?

Millinette 20/75 is low dose combined contraceptive pill, commonly known as birth control pill or simply ‘the pill’. Millinette is an oral contraceptive that prevents ovulation i.e. release of the egg from the ovary each month. It also alters the endometrium (lining of the uterus) and the fluid of the cervix, which makes it harder for a sperm to enter the womb.

It is important to remember that oral combined contraceptives like Millinette do not protect against Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs). Millinette can be used as an emergency pill.

How Does Millinette Work?

Millinette contains two hormones that prevent the release of an egg from the ovary and make the mucous of the cervix thick enough to prevent sperm from reaching an egg. These hormones also make the implantation of a fertilized egg to the wall of the uterus extremely difficult.

The two hormones used in this combined oral contraceptive are estrogen, ethinyl estradiol and progestogen gestodene. These two hormones prevent a pregnancy just as your natural hormones would prevent you from conceiving again, when you are already pregnant.
