Dienogest (2mg) and Ethinylestradiol (30mg)

May 03, 2023


Dienogest (2mg) and Ethinylestradiol (30mcg) are two hormonal components that are commonly combined together to form a combined hormonal contraceptive pill. This combination is typically taken orally, once a day, for 21 days followed by a 7-day pill-free interval.

Dienogest is a progestin medication that works by inhibiting ovulation, thickening cervical mucus, and altering the lining of the uterus to prevent implantation of a fertilized egg. Ethinylestradiol is an estrogen medication that helps to regulate the menstrual cycle and prevent ovulation.

Together, these medications are highly effective at preventing pregnancy when taken correctly. However, it is important to note that combined hormonal contraceptives do not protect against sexually transmitted infections (STIs).

Common side effects of this medication include nausea, headache, breast tenderness, and irregular bleeding. It is important to talk to your doctor if you experience any side effects or have any concerns about taking this medication. Additionally, some women may have contraindications to using combined hormonal contraceptives, such as a history of blood clots, liver disease, or certain types of cancer. Your doctor can help determine if this medication is appropriate for you.
