The Contraceptive Pill

The combined contraceptive pill contains both oestrogen and progestogen, which prevent ovulation and therefore pregnancy. Here at The Online Clinic we can prescribe Gedarel contraceptive pill for women who have already been prescribed a combined oral contraceptive pill in a face to face environment; it does not have to be the particular medication.

What is a combined pill?

‘The Pill’, as it is commonly known, is referred to as a combined pill because it contains two hormones.


Gedarel is a combined pill and contains synthetic versions of oestrogen and progestogen: ethinylestradiol and desogestrel. These are the same ingredients as Marvelon contraceptive pill.

How does Gedarel work?

The pill releases hormones into the system making the body believe that ovulation has already occurred. It will therefore thicken the mucus around the cervix making it difficult for sperm to pass through and it also changes the quality of the womb lining making it difficult for an egg to attach.

When do I take Gedarel?

The first pill is taken within the first 5 days of a period and one pill is taken each day for a period of 21 days. A seven day break will follow during which a bleed will occur. Please remember to read the instructions that come with the medication.

Gedarel is available as Gedarel 20 and Gedarel 30. The doctor will consider what you have previously been prescribed when recommending a dosage.

What happens if I miss a pill?

If one pill is missed, then that pill needs to be taken as soon as you remember, and the rest of the tablets are to be taken as directed. If two or more are missed, then barrier contraception is required.

Side Effects of Gedarel

The most common side effect with Gedarel is weight gain but not everyone experiences side effects. Other common side effects include nausea, headache, yeast infection and mood swings.

Can anyone take Gedarel?

We only recommend prescriptions for any contraceptive pill online if the patient has already been initiated on a similar treatment in a face to face environment with a healthcare practitioner. Please complete a consultation form to begin the process of getting your medication.
