What is Brevinor?

Brevinor is a combined hormonal contraceptive pill for women. It works by adding to the amount of oestrogen and progesterone to prevent pregnancy. Brevinor is a monophasic pill, which means they contain equal quantities of oestrogen and progesterone in each pill – this differs from biphasic and triphasic pills, which vary in the amount of each hormone depending on each stage of the menstrual cycle.


How to take Brevinor?

Brevinor is taken orally, once a day, for 21 days – patients should then abstain from taking Brevinor for 7 days before starting the course again for as long as the contraception is needed. It is available in 0.05 milligrams and 35 microgram dosages, but your doctor will determine the correct dosage.

Brevinor comes in a blister pack with each of the 21 tablets marked with the days of the week. It should be taken on day 1 of the patient’s period to be protected immediately, although patients delaying their treatment up to day 5 may not be protected straight away and should use an alternative method of contraception for the first 7 days of taking this medication.


Precautions with Brevinor?

Inform your doctor or pharmacist of any allergies you are aware of before taking Brevinor, as this medication may contain inactive ingredients which can cause allergic reactions or other health problems. You should also inform them of any prescription or non-prescription and herbal drugs or products you are taking. 

Before taking Brevinor, speak to your doctor if you have or have had any of the following:

  • Heart, blood or circulatory problems
  • Diabetes
  • Kidney or liver problems
  • Mental illness


Patients who are breastfeeding should not take this medication as it can reduce the amount of milk produced, and the effect of Brevinor on infants has not been determined.

Patients who are undergoing elective operations should stop taking Brevinor at least 4 weeks before and for 2 weeks after, and during immobilisation. Patients who are undergoing injection treatment for varicose veins shouldn’t take this medication until 3 months after the last injection has taken place.

The use of Brevinor in those suffering from migraines, asthma, epilepsy or cardiac problems should be carefully monitored, as this medication can exacerbate these disorders.

Side effects of Brevinor?

The possible side effects of using Brevinor include:

  • Headaches or migraines
  • Weight gain or weight loss
  • Tender/sensitive breasts
  • Mood swings and irritability
  • Changes in libido
  • Spotting between periods
  • Constipation
  • Increased risk of blood clotting
