Ovranette is a combined contraceptive pill used to prevent pregnancy. 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. 

Ovranette is taken every day for 21 consecutive days, followed by a 7-day ‘break’ period, when you take no pills. In your tablet-free period your body will produce a ‘withdrawal’ bleed which resembles your period.

About Ovranette

Dosage

Each Ovranette packet contains 21 pills, each marked by the days of the week. Take one pill every day for 21 days in a row, following the days of the week in the direction marked by the arrows. Try to take each of your pills at the same time every day (for example, just before you go to bed).  

After 21 days of taking the pill, you will have a 7-day ‘break’ period when you will take no pills. During this time you will experience a withdrawal bleed, which may be lighter and less unpleasant than your period. Start your new pill pack after this 7-day period, and follow the same cycle on the next month. 

Who can take Ovranette?

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.

  • are allergic (hypersensitive) to any of the listed ingredients

How to take Ovranette

Swallow your Ovranette pill whole, without chewing or crushing it. You can take Ovranette with or without food or water. 

What if I forget to take or miss a pill?

If you are less than 12 hours late in taking your Ovranette pill, take your missed pill as soon as you remember and carry on the next day as usual. Don’t worry, you will still be protected against pregnancy. 

If you are more than 12 hours late or have missed more than one pill, take your missed pill straight away and take all your further pills as usual, even if you end up taking two in one day. Use condoms for the next 7 days as an extra precaution against pregnancy. Count the number of pills left in your current packet after the last missed pill and follow these instructions: 

If you have 7 or more pills left in the pack: finish the strip and take your 7-day break period as usual before starting a new packet. If you missed the pill during the first 7 days of your strip, and had sex during this week, you may be pregnant. Contact your nurse or doctor as soon as possible as you might need emergency contraception. 

If you have less than 7 pills left in the pack: start a new packet immediately after you finish your current one, without taking a 7-day break period. If you don’t get your withdrawal bleed in the 7-day break period after finishing your second strip, take a pregnancy test as you may be pregnant. If you missed the pill during the first 7 days of your first strip, and had sex, you may also be pregnant. 

In all cases, if you have missed a pill and do not have a withdrawal bleed in your 7-day break period, there is a chance you may be pregnant. Visit your local family planning clinic or take a test yourself at home to confirm.
