About Ovranette

  • How do I take Ovranette?

    Take one pill every day for 21 days until the packet is finished. You will then have a seven day pill free break and will experience a withdrawal bleed, much like a period. You should always start your next strip after the seven day break on time, even if your period hasn't finished. If you miss a pill, consult the patient information leaflet provided with the medication. 

  • How long does Ovranette take to work?

    If you have not previously been using a hormonal contraceptive you should start taking this pill on the first day of your period which will protect you against pregnancy straight away. If you take it any later, you must be sure you could not already be pregnant and use condoms for seven days to be protected.

  • How effective is Ovranette?

    Ovranette is 99% effective when taken correctly.

  • What are the side effects of Ovranette?

    Some of the more common side effects associated with Ovranette may include: nausea, headaches, breast tenderness and mood swings, if you have any concerns or persistent side effects please consult a doctor.

    If you experience any severe or serious side effects please contact your nearest emergency department for urgent medical attention.

    Please read the patient information leaflet, which comes with the medication carefully before taking your pill which provides a full list of side effects and serious signs to look out for.

  • Can I take other medicines with Ovranette?

    Certain medications and herbal remedies can reduce the effectiveness of your pill. If you start taking any prescription or non-prescription medications while taking the pill then contact us via your Patient Record. Alternatively, your own doctor should be able to give you guidance.

  • Why do you need my blood pressure, height and weight measurements?

    Our doctors want to make sure Ovranette is right for you. For some people, the combined pill, patch or ring can raise blood pressure, which can increase the risk of blood clots, heart attacks, and strokes.

    If it's not safe, our doctors won't be able to prescribe Ovranette, but they will provide you with advice on alternatives.

  • What happens if I am not suitable for Ovranette?

    If our doctors think that an online consultation is not appropriate we will let you know via your Patient Record and refund you straight away. Please note that refunds take up to five working days to appear on your statement.
