How does Rigevidon work?

Rigevidon tablets contain two active ingredients, ethinylestradiol and levonorgestrel. These are synthetic versions of the naturally occurring female sex hormones, oestrogen and progesterone. Ethinylestradiol is a synthetic version of oestrogen and levonorgestrel is a synthetic form of progesterone.

Combined oral contraceptives like Rigevidon work by over-riding the normal menstrual cycle. In a woman's normal menstrual cycle, levels of the sex hormones change throughout each month. The hormones cause an egg to be released from the ovaries (ovulation) and prepare the lining of the womb for a possible pregnancy. At the end of each cycle, if the egg has not been fertilised the levels of the hormones fall, causing the womb lining to be shed as a monthly period.

The daily dose of hormones taken in the pill work mainly by tricking your body into thinking that ovulation has already happened. This prevents an egg from ripening and being released from the ovaries each month.

The hormones also increase the thickness of the natural mucus at the neck of the womb, which makes it more difficult for sperm to cross from the vagina into the womb and reach an egg. They also change the quality of the womb lining (endometrium), making it less likely that a fertilised egg can implant there.

How do I take Rigevidon?

Rigevidon is a monophasic pill, which means that each pill has the same dosage of the hormones in it. A single pill is taken every day for 21 days followed by a 7 day break from taking the pill.

During the 7 day break, hormone levels fall and a withdrawl bleed should take place that is similar to a normal period.

The next pack of pills is started once the 7 pill free days are complete, even if a withdrawl bleed is still occuring.

For ease of use the tablets are supplied in a calendar pack, labelled by day of the week so its easy to remember to take one each day. It is advisable to take the pill at the same time each day.

Is it safe to buy Rigevidon online?

While many online retailers claim to supply genuine Rigevidon, they may be unregulated, provided without a genuine doctor consultation and potentially very dangerous. You can rest assured, PrivateDoc is a fully registered digital health service. We have UK registered doctors that review and assess every consultation.
