Instructions for use of Ovidon

According to the instructions, Ovidon is prescribed to take orally. Once a day from 1-5 days of the menstrual cycle and over the next 20 days. Then you should take a break in reception for 7 days. According to the doctor's prescription, the drug in the form of dragees, in the amount of 28 pcs., Can be taken continuously throughout the entire course of treatment.

For taking Ovidon, you must select a specific time (breakfast or dinner) to constantly maintain the concentration of hormones in the blood for effective contraception.

The attending physician must control the patient's Ovidon's menstrual cycle, since the drug may shorten or increase the duration of the cycle, as well as possible vaginal bleeding of varying intensity.

Ovidon received good reviews as a long-acting contraceptive drug that ensures hormonal stability and regularity of the menstrual cycle.

In accordance with the instructions of Ovidon, during the period of interruption in his admission, other non-hormonal contraceptives should be taken, the individual dosage of which should be determined by the attending physician.

Dosing and Administration

To prevent pregnancy, take 1 tablet of Ovidon daily in the evening. Reception should begin with 1-5 days of menstruation. After taking 21 pills (full pack), you should take a 7-day break. At this time, menstrual bleeding should occur.

For therapeutic purposes, the doctor selects the dosage and regimen of the drug individually.

Composition and release form

Ovidon dosage form - tablets: white, on one side with the engraving “ov” (21 pieces in a blister pack, in a cardboard box 1 pack).

Ingredients 1 tablet:

  • Levonorgestrel - 0.25 mg,
  • Ethinyl estradiol - 0.05 mg.

Clinico-pharmacological group: progestin contraceptive drug.

What does Ovidon help?

Used as a contraceptive.

Also, to eliminate a number of gynecological symptoms associated with the cycle, such as premenstrual tension, dysmenorrhea (menstrual disorder), polymenorrhea (menstrual disorder characterized by prolonged (more than 6 days) and abundant menstruation), pain in the middle of the cycle, etc. .

Pharmacy sales terms

The drug is available on prescription.

In summary, what can I say about the use of Ovidon tablets with a duration of six months:

1) term of use: 6 months (28 days each)
2) the price was very democratic then 40 rubles.
3) nature of menstruation: the number of days increased from 4 to 6, but the number of menses per day did not increase
4) hair, nails: without negative changes, did not break and did not fall down
5) face: acne, rash not followed
6) intermediate bleeding: none
7) weight: stably 60-61 kg (I was not “spread out” and I did not lose weight)
8) emotional background: became a bit more aggressive
9) the breasts were filled like two weeks from the 4 weeks of the cycle (I think this is a large dose of hormones, later I remembered this feeling when I got pregnant)

I recommend these pills, especially as a means of establishing the menstrual cycle. Monthly - at the same time, on the same day come, every 28th day! I, however, never had any gaps in the cycle before applying the preparation, but it “sailed” and was 26-32 days.

Ovidon: instructions for use

Combined oral contraceptives occupy a leading place in the field of contraception among other contraceptives.

Who do they suit first? Of course, disciplined women and girls who appreciate high reliability, and also want to get therapeutic effects from the use of funds.

Dosing regimen

For contraception, Ovidon is taken according to the basic classical scheme. It is often called "21 + 7".The drug is taken daily in the amount of one tablet. The period of taking the pills is 21 days. Then the reception is stopped for 7 days. In the days of a break, a woman usually has a menstrual period, which may be slightly different from normal. Spotting are scanty, smearing. On the eighth day, you are required to start taking the pills again. Pay attention - it is necessary to begin tablets from new packing.

For convenience, the package has an arrow and a number.

Reception courses can be long. If a woman feels well while taking Ovidon, then there is no need to change it for another drug, or to take a break from taking it. On the contrary, Ovidon should be taken for a long time until the woman has planned a pregnancy. No “once a year” breaks are recommended. Scientists have shown that taking breaks increases the risk of various side effects with the newly resumed taking of the drug.

Long-term use of the drug helps to preserve the health of a woman. If a woman does not violate the rules for taking Ovidon, then his contraceptive effect persists for seven days of rest.

Side effects

The use of Ovidon, as with all hormonal oral contraceptives, can cause adverse effects. Most often they occur at the beginning of the pill. The fact is that the body can not immediately adapt to the amount of hormones that are introduced during the use of the drug. After several months of taking the remedy, the negative phenomena disappear.

Estrogen, which is part of the drug, can cause symptoms of "false pregnancy":

  • nausea,
  • vomiting
  • bloating
  • headaches,
  • swelling,
  • vaginal discharge,
  • hypersensitivity and engorgement of the mammary glands.

The progestogens that make up the product cause the following side effects:
  • depression,
  • vaginal dryness
  • acne on the face,
  • decreased libido
  • weight gain due to fluid retention.

Allergic reactions sometimes occur when taking Ovidon. In this case, you must immediately cancel the drug.

Quite often, when you receive intermenstrual bleeding occurs, less often there is some discomfort when wearing contact lenses.

Side effects when taking the drug, as a rule, are intermittent, often go away on their own within 2-3 months from the start of use.

Receiving Ovidon for a long time can cause the appearance of dark pigment spots (similar are during pregnancy). Changes in biochemical parameters in the blood test may appear: an increase in sugar levels, blood pressure indicators, exacerbation of liver and gallbladder diseases, and development of thrombophlebitis. Characterized by changes in the skin: the appearance of acne, dry skin and hair, hair loss. In rare cases, taking Ovidon causes mycosis of the vagina, candidiasis.

The likelihood of side effects increases when using the drug without a doctor's prescription.

Probability of thromboembolism

For the appointment of Ovidon, a woman’s life history is carefully studied, the presence of thromboembolism and thrombosis, changes in blood clotting are taken into account. If they are even in family history, the use of Ovidon is unacceptable.

With prolonged use of funds may develop terrible complications of thrombosis. The likelihood of thromboembolism may increase, depending on the age of the woman, and such a sign as smoking. Therefore, women taking the drug over 30 years old must quit smoking.

Risk of developing malignant tumors

Experts have proved that with the regular use of sex hormones for more than eight years, the development of benign liver tumors is observed in rare cases, and the malignant neoplasms of this organ are extremely rare.

With the increase in pain in the upper abdomen while taking Ovidon there is a suspicion of a liver tumor. In this case, the drug is stopped until the causes of the pain are determined. If a hepatic impairment is detected to some extent, the woman should be seen by the therapist every three months. For this period, the drug is stopped until the cause of the violations is ascertained.

In the case of vomiting or diarrhea, Ovidon's administration is recommended to continue, but an additional method of contraception should be used.

Particular attention is drawn to the feasibility of receiving funds for diseases of the endocrine, cardiovascular and digestive systems. The presence of pathologies such as diabetes mellitus, kidney disease, thrombophlebitis, hypertension, multiple sclerosis, mental illness with symptoms of depression, and bronchial asthma require special monitoring of the woman’s health status.

During the administration of Ovidon, medical monitoring is required at least every 6 months.
After suffering viral hepatitis, it is allowed to use the drug no earlier than 6 months after the normalization of liver functions.

Comparative characteristics of Ovidon and its analogues

  • Rygevidon,
  • Anteovin,
  • Mikroginon,
  • Minisiston
  • Triziston.

All of these drugs belong to the combined oral contraceptives, as part of have two hormones - levonorgestrel and ethinyl estradiol, in the dosage of which there are slight differences.
By the action of all the above drugs are divided into:
1. Monophasic - Rigavidon, Mikroginon and Miniziston.
2. Biphasic - Anteovin.
3. Three-phase - Triziston.

Three-phase drugs were created to reduce the total dose of hormones during the course. But then low-dose monophasic drugs appeared, and there was no need to use three-phase drugs. Biphasic and three phase birth control pills to a greater degree imitate the menstrual cycle, but at the same time, have low efficiency. High-dose monophasic drugs are effective with proper regular intake of 100%.

Therefore, three-phase contraceptives are more indicated for the treatment of ovarian dysfunction, for the establishment of the menstrual cycle and the treatment of premenstrual syndrome. For effective contraception, monophasic high-dose drugs are preferred, to which Ovidon belongs.

Using the drug as the "next day's pills"

Emergency contraception is a way to prevent pregnancy immediately after unprotected intercourse.

For this method, proposed in the seventies of the 20th century by Albert Yuzpe, certain drugs are suitable, including Ovidon. Immediately after unprotected sexual intercourse, a woman must drink 2 tablets of Ovidon within 72 hours, and after 12 hours, repeat the same dose.

The method is remarkable in that it can be used for emergency contraception any combination drug containing levonorgestrel in its composition in a dose of 0.5 mg. The dose per dose should be 1 mg. Therefore, such means as Regividon, Silest, Marvelon are suitable for this method - 4 tablets in two doses.

Within a few days after taking the pills, premature menstruation begins, which indicates the contraceptive effect of the method.

It is important to remember that the method of emergency contraception is less reliable and harmless than regular contraception. It should be used only in emergency cases.

Therapeutic use

Ovidon is used not only to prevent unwanted pregnancies, but also for medicinal purposes.

So, in case of painful menstruation (dysmenorrhea), along with drugs of other groups, treatment with high-dose combination drugs, primarily Ovidon, is widely used. The prescribed complex treatment helps relieve pain.

In ovarian forms of amenorrhea, cyclic hormone replacement therapy is performed.

The use of the following synthetic progestins is possible during cyclic hormone therapy: Non-Ovlon, Ovidon, Rigevidon. Drugs prescribed in the period from 5 to 25 day cycle, take 1 tablet per day.

It is advisable to use the drug for menopausal syndrome, which is caused by a lack of ovarian function. Ovidon or Rigevidon tablet is divided into 6-8 parts, and take one by one. Duration of use - 15-25 days.

Juvenile bleeding often occurs between the ages of 14-18. Conservative treatment includes the use of hormonal agents. Estrogen-progestin drugs - Non-Ovlon, Bisecurin, Ovidon - prescribe 4-5 tablets per day, until complete bleeding stops. In consequence, the dose is reduced. The duration of treatment is 15-18 days.

In the treatment of dysfunctional uterine bleeding in the reproductive period, hormonal contraceptives are used, including Ovidon.

Drug properties

OK "Ovidon", as stated in the instructions for use, includes synthetic hormones gestagen and estrogen, under the action of which ovulation ceases, and the ovaries are immersed in a stage of rest. Simultaneously with this process, metamorphosis is observed in the mucous membrane of the cervical canal, in the endometrium and fallopian tubes.

Secretions in the cervical canal become more viscous, and this prevents the progress of sperm, and the endometrium becomes so thin that it does not allow the egg to implant in the uterus. Such transformations in the female body exclude the possibility of fertilization and with the right reception of OK, its effectiveness is almost 100%.

The active ingredients of the drug (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) are absorbed very soon in the small intestine. Indicators of the level of binding to plasma proteins are about 94%. Already after 2 h there is a limiting concentration of substances in the blood that penetrate into different tissues and organs. As a rule, ethinyl estradiol accumulates in body fat. About 10% of hormones are able to penetrate into breast milk, so during lactation, OK should be canceled. The withdrawal of the drug is carried out within 24 hours, through the liver and kidneys.

During pregnancy and lactation

Pregnancy is a contraindication to the reception of funds, therefore, when confirmed, it is necessary to cancel OK. Also, do not forget that hormones are in breast milk, and this can cause complications in the development of organs and systems of the infant, so that during the feeding period the drug should also be canceled.

As for abortions, after them it is recommended to start taking OK immediately on the day of surgery, or a maximum of the following day. After childbirth, it is possible to use the drug on day 21 (when the woman is not breastfeeding) or for 7 months from the day of birth, if lactation is practiced. However, it is preliminary recommended to consult with your doctor about the appropriateness of receiving OK, since it may lead to the development of thrombosis and thromboembolism in the postnatal period.
