Ovranette and Pregnancy

Combined Contraceptive Pill »

The pill should not be used in conjunction with pregnancy. If you think that you may be pregnant, take a pregnancy test to confirm and talk to your doctor. If you are pregnant, you need to stop using Ovranette straight away. The pill does not create a favourable environment for a foetus.

If you want to try for a baby, you simply need to stop taking the pill. It is an easily reversible method so just stop using it as contraception. It may take a couple of months for your body to return to its normal cycle but the pill should not affect your fertility levels. You are advised to wait until you have had a regular period before trying to get pregnant. It is not essential that you do so but knowing when your last period was will help the doctor work out your due date.

If you have just had a baby and you are breast-feeding, you should not use the contraceptive pill. The levels of oestrogen in the blood can affect your milk production and you may not produce a sufficient amount to feed your baby. Also, you pass a small amount of the hormones through the milk and although there have not been any detrimental effects reported, the evidence is not conclusive.

If you are not breast feeding and you are fully mobile after giving birth, you can start using the contraceptive pill 21 days after delivery. This will give you immediate protection. You can start any time after this time frame but you will need additional contraception for seven days, as you will not be protected from pregnancy.
