What is Marvelon?

The Marvelon contraceptive pill is a preparation used for hormonal contraception, a so-called combined hormonal contraceptive (COC) or "combined pill". Each tablet contains a small amount of two different female sex hormones: desogestrel as a gestagen (corpus luteum hormone) and Ethinylestradiol as an estrogen. Given the low amounts of hormones, Marvelon falls into the category of low-dose oral contraceptives. Since all the tablets in the package contain the same hormones in the same dose, this is a single-phase oral contraceptive.

When used according to prescriptions, Marvelon offers protection against pregnancy on several levels: in general, it prevents the development of fertilizable eggs. In addition, the mucus from the cervix remains dense, making it difficult for the male semen to pass through. Also, the uterine lining is not prepared to accept a pregnancy. Hormonal changes induced by COCs can also make the cycle more regular and reduce the intensity and duration of menstruation. Marvelon can only be taken with a prescription.

How does it work?

Both act synergistically and decrease the hypothalamic secretion of the gonadotropin-releasing hormone, an action that inhibits ovulation because it interferes with the hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis and the secretion of pituitary gonadotropins. Progestin, in particular, suppresses the release of luteinizing hormone (LH), necessary for ovulation, and estrogen suppresses the release of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), which prevents the selection and maturation of the dominant follicle. They also delay the maturation of the endometrium, which prevents implantation of the egg, and increase the viscosity of cervical mucus, slowing the progress of sperm. The combined effect of these actions determines their high contraceptive efficacy. In addition to avoiding pregnancy, regular use of contraceptives significantly reduces the risk of pelvic inflammatory disease, endometrial cancer, and breast cancer. On the other hand, when they are used continuously they have an anti-endometriotic effect since they produce a pseudopregnancy state in which the uterine and ectopic endometrium suffer a decidual reaction, necrosis, and atrophy. Both drugs are well absorbed through the gastrointestinal mucosa and are widely distributed in the body. Ethinylestradiol binds remarkably to plasma proteins (95%) and desogestrel to albumin and globulin that binds sex hormones. Both products are metabolized in the liver; In the case of desogestrel, several active metabolites are produced, which are biotransformed and are eliminated, especially in urine and bile.

What are the benefits of taking it?

Marvelon medication is a contraceptive pill. This means that it contains two synthetic hormones that work together to prevent pregnancy. This treatment is also recommended to relieve symptoms of heavy bleeding periods. It is a simple treatment to take, one tablet a day, which is taken for 21 consecutive days within a period of four weeks.
