What is Microgynon 30?
Microgynon Pill or Microgynon 30 is a prescription medicine which is used to stop you from becoming pregnant. Alternatives to include the Microgynon Combined Pill is Microgynon 30 ED.
Microgynon contains oestrogen and progestogen which are two types of female sex hormones.
We are often asked “What is Microgynon and how does it work?”
The hormones contained, stop you from getting pregnant. This includes three ways:
- Eggs are no longer released from the ovaries
- Fluid/mucus in your cervix becomes thicker, making it more difficult for the sperm to reach and enter the womb.
- Thickening of the womb occurs, not allowing enough space for an egg to grow.
Microgynon is a 21 day course, taking one each day, followed by 7 days of taking no Microgynon pill.
Contraceptive Pill Microgynon
Once a man’s sperm reaches a women’s egg, the women can become pregnant. Contraception is an artificial way of stopping this from happening.
This is accomplished by:
- The egg and sperm being kept apart.
- Egg production is halted.
- The egg and sperm can no longer attach to the lining of the womb.
For the majority of people in the UK, contraception is free, with condoms available at a wide variety of pharmacies and supermarkets.
The Contraceptive Pill Microgynon, is one such method, with over 15 other methods to choose from.
Other methods include the use of condoms, but these should be used alongside other contraceptive measures. This helps to protect the sexual health of you and your partner.
Is Microgynon a Combined Pill?
A combined pill is just an alternative way of saying “the pill”. A combined pill contains two artificial versions of a females hormones called; oestrogen and progesterone. They are usually produced naturally in women’s ovaries.
Microgynon includes both of these and is considered a combined pill. So Is Microgynon A Combined Pill? Yes, Microgynon is a combined contraceptive pill.
Before using a combined pill, here are some important things to know:
- It is one of the most reliable ways to prevent pregnancy if used correctly
- One of the risks taking a combined pill includes the possibility of a blood clot
- During the long-term it can reduce the risk of ovarian and womb cancer
How To Take Microgynon
Before being prescribed Microgynon, please be aware of How To Take Microgynon by reading the below.
As a way to prevent pregnancy, always take Microgynon Contraceptive Pill as listed below.
Take Microgynon 30 every day for 21 days, naturally concluding the course.
Each packet of Microgynon contraceptive pill has strips of 21 pills, each marked with a specified day.
- Ensure that you take the pill at the same time, every day.
- Start the course by taking one marked with the correct current day of the week.
- Each strip will have arrows guiding you to the next contraceptive pill, taking one each day until the course is finished.
- Each pill should be swallowed whole, not chewed, with water if needed.
Once the course is finished, have 7 days of pill-free days.
After taking all of the pills in the strip, you must have 7 pill free days. As an example, if the last Microgynon pill is taken on a Friday, the first pill of the next pack will be taken on the Saturday of the following week.
Microgynon Missed Pill or Period
If any of the pills in a strip are missed, and you do not bleed in the first pill-free week, you may well be pregnant. If this is suspected, contact your doctor or do a pregnancy test. A Microgynon Missed Pill or Microgynon Missed Period can mean your birth control is no longer effective.
If a new strip of Microgynon pills are taken late or the free-pill week is extended longer than 7 days, the pill may not be actively protecting you from pregnancy. If this is the case, an emergency contraception will have to be considered.
Microgynon Missed Period
Sometimes, you may miss a withdrawal bleed. This could indicate that you’re pregnant, however that is very unlikely if the pills have been taken correctly. The next strip should be taken at the regular time. If you think you may have put yourself at risk of getting pregnant, the number one priority is to have a pregnancy test.
If the test is positive and you’re pregnant stop taking Microgynon pill and see a doctor.
Microgynon Side Effects
Like with all medicine, Microgynon 30 is no stranger to side effects, however not everyone gets them. If any of the Microgynon Side Effects listed below, particularly if any of them are severe and or persistent, talk to a doctor.
When using Microgynon 30, an increased chance of blood clots in veins and arteries can present itself for all women using combined contraceptive pills. Tell your pharmacist or doctor if you are worried about any Microgynon side effects.
Here is a list of the most serious side effects – if you experience any of these, see a doctor straight away.
- Blood clots in a vein or artery (in legs, feet, lungs, heart and brain.)
- Severe allergic reactions such as swelling of the hands, face, lips, mouth, tongue or throat.
- Signs of breast cancer, skin dimpling on the breast, changes in the nipples, any lumps that are protruding or felt.
- Cervix cancer, including vaginal discharge, unusual vaginal bleeding, pelvic pain and painful sex.
Some of the more common side effects include –
- Being sick and stomach ache
- An increase in fluid retention
- Loss of sexual drive (no interest).
- Enlargement of the breast.
- Rashes on the skin, which may or may not be itchy.
Microgynon Acne is not a side effect of taking Microgynon 30. Not only are contraceptive pills generally not a cause for acne, they seem to be effective at preventing it in the long term.
If you’ve only just switched to an oral contraceptive and have noticed a sudden outbreak of acne, birth control is very unlikely to have caused it. Instead, it’s far more likely to have been caused by hormone fluctuations, which are normal. The contraceptive likely hasn’t had enough time in your system to prevent these outbreaks from occurring.
Rigevidon vs Microgynon
Microgynon and Rigevidon are the most commonly used contraceptive pills, containing the same ingredients. Both are a combined pill, which means they contain oestrogen and progesterone.
When considering Rigevidon vs Microgynon – Both are essentially the same, however, Rigevidon contains different non-active ingredients such as colourings. Out of the two, Rigevidon is the cheapest.

- Microgynon 30 ED (Includes a week of placebo tablets, helps with people who are more likely to forget to take the daily pill.)
Other alternative contraception methods include –
The combined oral contraceptive pill is usually just called “the pill”. It contains the female hormones oestrogen and progesterone, which women produce naturally in their ovaries.
The Combined pill is over 99% effective at preventing pregnancy.
The usual way to take the pill is to take one every day for 21 days, then stop for seven days, and during this week you have a period-type bleed. You start taking the pill again after seven days.
You need to take the pill at around the same time every day. You could get pregnant if you don’t do this, or if you miss a pill, or vomit or have severe diarrhoea.
Some medicines may make the pill less effective. Check with your doctor if you’re taking any other tablets.
If you have heavy periods or painful periods, PMS (premenstrual syndrome) or endometriosis the combined pill may help.
The pill does not protect against sexually transmitted infections (STIs), so using a condom as well will help to protect you against STIs.
How the combined pill works
1) prevents the ovaries from releasing an egg each month (ovulation).
2)thickens the mucus in the neck of the womb, so it is harder for sperm to penetrate the womb and reach an egg
3)thins the lining of the womb, so there is less chance of a fertilised egg implanting into the womb and being able to grow
There are many different brands of pill, made up of three main types:
Monophasic 21-day pills
This is the most common type. Each pill has the same amount of hormone in it. One pill is taken each day for 21 days and then no pills are taken for the next seven days. Microgynon, Marvelon, Yasmin and Cilest are examples of this type of pill.
Phasic 21-day pills
Phasic pills contain two or three sections of different coloured pills in a pack. Each section contains a different amount of hormones. One pill is taken each day for 21 days and then no pills are taken for the next seven days. Phasic pills need to be taken in the right order. Logynon is an example of this type of pill.
Every day (ED) pills
There are 21 active pills and seven inactive (dummy) pills in a pack. The two types of pill look different. One pill is taken each day for 28 days with no break between packets of pills. Every day pills need to be taken in the right order. Microgynon ED is an example of this type of pill.
Follow the instructions that come with your packet. If you have any questions, ask your GP, practice nurse or pharmacist.
What to do if you miss a pill
If you continue to be sick, keep using another form of contraception until you’ve taken the pill again for seven days without vomiting.
Who can use the combined pill
If there are no medical reasons why you cannot take the pill, and you don’t smoke, you can take the pill until your menopause. However, the pill is not suitable for all women. To find out whether the pill is right for you, talk to your GP, practice nurse or pharmacist.
You should not take the pill if you:
smoke and are 35 or older
stopped smoking less than a year ago and are 35 or older
are very overweight
take certain medicines (ask your GP or a health professional at a contraception clinic about this)
You should also not take the pill if you have (or have had):
thrombosis (a blood clot) in a vein, for example in your leg or lungs
stroke or any other disease that narrows the arteries
anyone in your close family having a blood clot under the age of 45
a heart abnormality or heart disease, including high blood pressure
severe migraines, especially with aura (warning symptoms)
disease of the gallbladder or liver
diabetes with complications or diabetes for the past 20 years
Risks of taking the combined pill
There are some risks associated with using the combined contraceptive pill. However, these risks are small and, for most women, the benefits of the pill outweigh the risks.
The oestrogen in the pill may cause your blood to clot more readily. If a blood clot develops, it could cause:
deep vein thrombosis (clot in your leg)
pulmonary embolus (clot in your lung)
The risk of getting a blood clot is very small, but your doctor will check if you have certain risk factors that before prescribing the pill.
The pill can be taken with caution if you have one of the risk factors below. It is unlikely you would be advised to take it if you have two or more risk factors.
being 35 years old or over
being a smoker or having quit smoking in the past year
being very overweight (in women with a BMI of 35 or over, the risks of using the pill usually outweigh the benefits)
having migraines (you should not take the pill if you have severe or regular migraine attacks, especially if you get aura or a warning sign before an attack)
having high blood pressure
having had a blood clot or stroke in the past
having a close relative who had a blood clot when they were younger than 45
being immobile for a long time – for example, in a wheelchair or with a leg in plaster
Research is ongoing into the link between breast cancer and the pill. Research suggests that users of all types of hormonal contraception have a slightly higher chance of being diagnosed with breast cancer compared with women who do not use them. However, 10 years after you stop taking the pill, your risk of breast cancer goes back to normal.
Research has also suggested a link between the pill and the risk of developing cervical cancer and a rare form of liver cancer. However, the pill does offer some protection against developing womb (endometrial) cancer, ovarian cancer and colon cancer.
