Description of Microgynon 30
Microgynon 30 as a Contraception
Microgynon 30 is a commonly-used and reliable form of contraceptive that is used to prevent unwanted pregnancy. Microgynon 30 is a monophasic daily birth control pill that is taken consecutively for 21 days with a seven-day break.

What is Microgynon 30 and how does it work?
Microgynon 30 is a 21-day pill that contains two types of female sex hormones, oestrogen and progestogen. These hormones work to prevent pregnancy in several ways. This includes thickening the fluid (mucus) in the cervix to make it more difficult for sperm to reach, ensuring the lining of the womb isn't able to grow an egg and preventing the release of an egg.
Microgynon 30 is not intended for use by females who have not had their first periods or for those who have experienced menopause.
