Rigevidon pill contains synthetic versions of the two hormones that would naturally be produced within a woman’s body, oestrogen and progesterone. The hormones work in three ways to prevent a pregnancy from occurring.
- Rigevidon stops the ovaries from releasing an egg each month
- The mucus at the cervix (neck of the womb) becomes thicker, preventing sperm from entering the uterus
- The lining of the uterus remains thin. This means that a fertilised egg would not be able to implant and begin developing into a baby.
Rigevidon is a reversible form of contraception. This means that it is only effective whilst you are taking it correctly, and its contraceptive effect is not permanent. Should you wish to become pregnant in the future, you can stop rigevidon and begin trying to conceive.Rigevidon pill
How is Rigevidon Taken?
One rigevidon tablet should be taken every day for 21 days in a row. At the end of 21 days, you should have a 7 day break from taking it. During this time, you will experience a withdrawal bleed which will seem like a period.
At the end of the 7 days, you can begin a new strip of 21 pills and the cycle starts once more. As long as you take rigevidon in this way, you will be protected against a pregnancy.Rigevidon tablets,birth control rigevidon
You can take rigevidon at any time of the day, but you must stick to taking it at the same time each day. Swallow each tablet whole with a drink of water.
Dosage of Rigevidon
One rigevidon tablet should be taken every day during the 21 day phase. At the end of this phase, you start a 7 day phase where you do not take any rigevidon. You then start a new strip of pills and the cycle repeats.
Each rigevidon pill contains 150 micrograms of levonorgestrel and 30 micrograms of ethinylestradiol.
