|Drug Class: What is Mircette ? and why is it prescribed?|
|Mircette is referred to as a Birth Control Pill.
Mircette is a combined oral contraceptive preparation for continuous administration containing as active substances the estrogen Ethinyl estradiol and the progestagen desogestrel. Clinical studies have revealed that the oral contraceptive preparations containing ethinyl estradiol and desogestrel lack undesirable metabolic effects. These effects are thought to result from the androgenic activity of some progestagens in oral contraceptives. Because of this, Mircette may have a favourable effect on androgen-related skin disorders such as acne and hirsutism.
When taken according to the recommended dosage scheme Mircette suppresses the hypophyseal gonadal function and thereby ovulation. In addition, it induces a regular uterine bleeding which, with respect to amount of flow and duration, resembles a normal menstrual bleeding. Usually this bleeding starts two or three days after the intake of the last active tablet and is painless.
Mircette pills may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this medication guide.
|Mircette Mechanism: How does Mircette work?|
|Mircette acts by suppression of gonadotropins. Although the primary mechanism of this action is inhibition of ovulation, other alterations include changes in the cervical mucus, which increase the difficulty of sperm entry into the uterus, and changes in the endometrium which reduce the likelihood of implantation.|
|Mircette Dosage: How should you take Mircette|
|Mircette is supplied in 21-day and 28-day packages.
Oral contraceptives are taken every day for a 3-week period, followed by 1 week of no oral contraceptives; this cycle is repeated each month.
1)Mircette may be initiated using either a Sunday start or any other day as a Day 1 start whichever is convenient.
2) Wait 1 week before taking any more Mircette tablets. Your menstrual period should occur during this time.
3) Following this 1-week waiting time, begin taking a daily tablet again for the next 21 days.
Each cycle pack dispenser is preprinted with the days of the week, starting with Sunday, to facilitate a Sunday start regimen. Six different \"day label strips\" are provided with each cycle pack dispenser in order to accommodate a Day 1 start regimen. In this case, the patient should place the self-adhesive \"day label strip\" that corresponds to her starting day over the preprinted days.
The possibility of ovulation and conception prior to initiation of use of Mircette should be considered.
The use of Mircette for contraception may be initiated 4 weeks postpartum in women who elect not to breast feed. When the tablets are administered during the postpartum period, the increased risk of thromboembolic disease associated with the postpartum period must be considered.
If the patient starts on Mircette postpartum, and has not yet had a period, she should be instructed to use another method of contraception until the tablet has been taken daily for 7 days.
