Medication details


Marvelon es un tratamiento solo con receta. Es una píldora anticonceptiva oral que se usa para prevenir el embarazo, que contiene la combinación de dos tipos de hormonas sexuales femeninas, estrógeno y progestágeno. Estas hormonas evitan que los ovarios liberen un óvulo, lo que impide que quedes embarazada. Esta píldora también espesa el líquido (moco) en el cuello uterino, lo que dificulta que los espermatozoides ingresen al útero.

Marvelon es una pastilla de 21 días que debe ser se toma cada día durante 21 días, seguido de 7 días cuando no se toman pastillas. Es una de las formas más confiables de anticoncepción, generalmente hace que los períodos sean más ligeros, más regulares y menos dolorosos. También puede ayudar con los síntomas premenstruales. Marvelon no la protegerá de las infecciones de transmisión sexual y debe tomarse según las indicaciones para prevenir el embarazo.


Using Marvelon effectively involves taking one pill daily for 21 consecutive days, followed by a 7-day pause without pills. This cycle maintains steady hormonal levels, ensuring optimal contraceptive efficacy.
