Mircette Medical Information
What is Mircette?
Mircette (ethinyl estradiol and desogestrel) is a combination medication that provides female hormones (progestin and estrogen) to prevent pregnancy. Mircette prevents ovulation (the releasing of an egg by an ovary). Mircette also alters the cervical mucus so sperm can’t reach the uterus and fertilize an egg as easily, and alters the uterine lining so an egg can’t attach to the uturus as easily. Mircette is a form of contraception and is primarily used to prevent pregnancy, though it may also lower the risk of ovarian cysts, regulate your menstrual cycle, and make your periods less painful.
Mircette should be taken exactly as directed. Take one tablet daily, at around the same time, and do not allow intervals between tablets exceed 24 hours. One course of Mircette contains 21 white active pills (progestin/estrogen combination) for the first three weeks, and 2 green inactive reminder pills and 5 yellow active pills (ethinyl estradiol) for the fourth and last week of each course. Use of Mircette may begin with either a Sunday start (the first Sunday following menstruation) or a Day 1 start (the day menstruation starts). If your period begins on Sunday, you should take the first active tablet that day. For each course, without interruption, take one white active pill daily for 21 days, then continue with the 2 green reminder pills and then the 5 yellow active pills, taking one pill daily for the next 7 days. Your period should occur during this fourth week. When all 28 tablets have been taken, begin a new course the next day by taking an active tablet, regardless of whether or not your period occurs.
