Description

What is Millinette and what is it used for?

Millinette is an oral contraceptive. When used correctly, it will provide near 100% protection against pregnancy. Its two active ingredients, gestodene and ethinylestradiol, prevent ovulation from occurring during the menstrual cycle. Millinette is a monophasic combined pill, meaning each pill contains the same dose of gestodene and ethinylestradiol.

Millinette is available in two different strengths. Millinette 30/75 contains 30mcg ethinylestradiol and 75mcg gestodene (the same as Katya & Femodene). Millinette 20/75 contains 20mcg ethinylestradiol and 75mcg gestodene (the same as Sunya & Femodette).

If you have been prescribed Millinette, repeat supplies can be purchased online from The Independent Pharmacy, following a simple medical questionnaire. One of our doctors will review your order on the same working day – if they deem that Millinette is suitable for you, your order will be with you as soon as the next working day.

There are 21 Millinette pills in a strip. Once you have finished a strip, you will stop taking the pill for seven days. During this time you will have a normal bleed. Once seven days have passed, begin your next cycle of treatment.

Millinette will not protect against sexually transmitted infections.

How does Millinette work?

Pregnancy occurs when an egg released from the ovaries is fertilised by sperm. In a normal menstrual cycle, the ovaries release one egg each month – this is the process of ovulation. This process is controlled by the female sex hormones progesterone and oestrogen. Millinette contains two synthetic hormones, gestodene and ethinylestradiol, which imitate these two natural hormones. They control the levels of each hormone in such a way that prevents an egg from being released. The Pill also makes it more difficult for sperm to reach the uterus, by thickening the fluid that is in the cervix.

During a regular menstrual cycle, the endometrium (the wall of the uterus) builds up in preparation for a fertilised egg. Millinette reduces the extent of this buildup, making it less likely that a fertilised egg will develop into an embryo. As a further result, periods become lighter.
