How to buy Marvelon online?

Marvelon is 99% effective[1] at preventing pregnancy when used correctly and taken over the course of 21 days with a seven-day break. One tablet is taken daily at around the same time making Marvelon an easy form of contraception to ingest with additional advantages such as reducing menstrual aches like cramping, reducing bleeding and flow, and making periods far more predictable.

You can order Marvelon online in either a three-month or six-month supply, skipping the face-to-face doctor's appointment and getting your contraception delivered straight to you, whether that's the workplace or your home. When ordering any prescription medication in the UK, you will need to be issued a prescription slip that can be obtained from OnlineClinic after a few clicks.

Short facts about Marvelon
How to take

Marvelon is taken over 21 days with a seven-day break before starting a new blister pack. One tablet is taken per day at around the same time.

How it works

Marvelon works in three ways to prevent pregnancy. Firstly, it stops an egg from being release. If an egg is released, the womb lining alters and the cervical thickens making it difficult for the egg to attach to the womb wall and the sperm to reach it.

Effectiveness

When taken correctly, at the same time everyday, Marvelon is 99% effective at preventing pregnancy when used correctly and can also be used to treat acne and heavy painful periods.

Dosages

There is only one dosage available to buy at OnlineClinic. This is 150mcg of artificial oestrogen (ethinylestradiol) and 30mcg of artificial progestogen (desogestrel).

Side effects

Side effects of Marvelon include headaches, nausea/vomiting, breast tenderness and a change in sex drive (low libido). These are usually temporary effects or mild in nature, but if persistent, you should contact your doctor.

How does Marvelon work?

Marvelon contains both oestrogen and progestogen hormones as its active ingredients; the same dosage is in each pill you take. The synthetic hormones in Marvelon are ethinylestradiol and desogestrel, oestrogen and progestogen respectively. They work together to mimic the menstrual cycle and can prevent pregnancy in three various ways.

Firstly, the likelihood of an egg being produced is extremely low as the artificial hormones make the body believe you have already ovulated. If an egg is produced, the alteration of the womb lining makes it difficult for the egg to attach and thirdly, the sperm will find it difficult reach the egg as the cervical fluids are thickened

This threefold method is 99% effective[1] at preventing pregnancy when used correctly.

How to take Marvelon?

Many women buy the combined pill because it is so simple to take yet highly effective. Marvelon is no different:

  • Marvelon comes in either three or six blister packs
  • Each blister pack contains 21 pills to be taken over a course of 28 days (the menstrual cycle)
  • Take 21 pills over 21 days (one daily) at around the same time
  • Altering the time can make the pill less effective
  • After the 21st day, you will have a seven-day break where you will experience a withdrawal bleed similar to a period
  • After seven days, you can continue with the next pack

Dosages

Marvelon comes in one dosage of 150mcg ethinylestradiol and 30mcg desogestrel, which you can buy in a three-month or six-month supply. This has been known to be highly effective whilst posing minimal risk of side effects.

Side effects and precautions

Marvelon pill side effects are unlikely, and if they do occur, are generally well manageable and temporary (with many women noticing that they disappear after the first three months of treatment). Side effects of Marvelon include nausea/vomiting, breast tenderness, changes in sex drive and headaches. For the full list of side effects, you can check the patient leaflet attached to the right of this page before buying.

There are some precautions of Marvelon to consider before purchasing. If you have or have had:

  • Recent surgery
  • Given birth in the last six months
  • Blood clots in the veins or lungs
  • Angina or heart valve disease
  • Heart attack
  • Irregular heartbeats
  • High blood pressure
  • Severe diabetes
  • High cholesterol
  • Obesity
  • Breast cancer
  • Stroke

It's important to remember that no contraceptive pill, including Marvelon, can protect you against sexually transmitted infections (STIs) so if you're not 100% sure about your sexual health, or your partner's, then wear additional barrier contraception such as condoms to significantly reduce this risk.
