Ovranette Pill

What is Ovranette?

Ovranette is a combined contraceptive pill. Ovranette is usually used to prevent pregnancy, but it can also be used to improve the symptoms of PMS - including relieving period pains.

Ovranette contains two active ingredients, levonorgestrel and ethinylestradiol, which are synthetic versions of the female sex hormones, oestrogen and progestogen, that your body produces naturally. 

How do I take Ovranette?

Ovranette tablets are to be swallowed whole, without chewing or crushing them. You can take your Ovranette tablet either with or without water or food. 

Each packet of Ovranette tablets contains 21 pills, with each pill marked by the corresponding day of the week on the blister foil strip. If you start your packet on a Monday, you will press your first tablet through the blister foil marked ‘MON’, and carry on through the usual days of the week following the arrow. Please note, product packaging may differ from the image above.

If this is the first hormonal contraceptive you have used in the past month, you should take your first Ovranette pill on the first day of your menstrual cycle, i.e. on the first day of your usual menstrual bleed.

Ovranette can help relieve your period pain by making your periods lighter. Period cramps are usually caused by chemicals in the womb called prostaglandins, which make the womb contract and squeeze. If your body produces too much of this chemical, it can make these normal contractions more intense and sometimes painful. Fewer prostaglandins are released when you have lighter periods, which can make your menstrual cramps less painful.

Ovranette is a prescription medication and it needs to be prescribed by a doctor. Your prescribing doctor will check whether it is suitable for you. If you have a history of certain illnesses, you may not be able to take Ovranette.

You should not take Ovranette if you: 

  • are allergic (hypersensitive) to any of the listed ingredients
  • are or think you might be pregnant
  • are breastfeeding
  • have breast or ovarian cancer
  • have unexplained vaginal bleeding
  • have a family history or have ever had problems with your blood circulation, like a blood clot, heart attack or stroke
  • have very high blood pressure
  • have an irregular heartbeat or heart valve disorder
  • are 35+ years old and smoke more than 15 cigarettes per day
  • have or have ever had a liver tumour or severe liver disease
  • have SLE disease (systemic lupus erythematosus) 
  • have migraines with neurological symptoms are intolerant to the types of sugar, sucrose and lactose in Ovranette pills
The active ingredients in your Ovranette pills are progestogen levonorgestrel, at a strength of 150 mcg, and oestrogen ethinylestradiol, at a strength of 30 mcg. 

Your Ovranette pill also contains: maize starch, lactose, povidone, talc, magnesium stearate, polyethylene glycol, sucrose, calcium carbonate, wax carnauba and white wax. 
As with all medicines, it is possible that you will experience some side effects while taking the Ovranette pill. 

The most common side effects (affecting less than 1 in 10 women) are: 

  • headaches
  • spotting or breakthrough bleeding
  • yeast or bacterial infections of the vagina
  • nausea or vomiting
  • stomach pains
  • weight change or bloating (fluid retention)
  • changes in mood, such as depression or anxiety
  • dizziness
  • low libido 
  • acne
  • swollen or tender breasts
Make sure to discuss your full medical history and any medications you are currently taking before starting Ovranette. Some drugs can interact with Ovranette and mustn’t be taken at the same time.

These include: 

  • St. John’s Wort (herbal remedy)
  • some medicines for TB (tuberculosis)

Do not use Ovranette if you are breastfeeding, pregnant, or believe that you might be. If you think you might be pregnant, speak to a doctor without delay.
