Description

What is Rigevidon & what is it used for?

Rigevidon is an oral contraceptive. When used correctly, it will provide 99% protection against pregnancy. Its two active ingredients, levonorgestrel and ethinylestradiol, prevent ovulation from occurring during the menstrual cycle. Rigevidon is a monophasic combined pill, meaning each pill contains the same dose of levonorgestrel and ethinylestradiol.

Rigevidon may also help reduce acne and protect against conditions such as fibroids, ovarian cysts and pelvic inflammatory disease. It will not protect against sexually transmitted infections.

There are 21 Rigevidon pills in a pack. Once you have finished a pack, 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.

How does Rigevidon 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. Rigevidon contains two synthetic hormones, levonorgestrel 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. Rigevidon 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.

Alternatives to Rigevidon

Rigevidon is a combined oral contraceptive pill that contains the same hormones as other contraceptive pills, including Microgynon, Ovranette and Levest.
