What is the medication sold under the name Mircette?
Mircette is nothing more than a registered trade name that became the brand name in the U.S. for the oral contraceptive tablets based on two active components Ethinyl Estradiol and Desogestrel. The trademark is owned by Teva Pharmaceuticals and therefore cannot be used by other pharmaceutical companies yet the formula of the medication is widely known and is not protected by the know-how so it can be used by all other drug makers. It means that if you want to save on the contraception without compromising its effect, you can buy Generic Mircette, i.e. the same medication but made by another company and sold cheaper, instead of the branded medication.
The medication is included in the group of combined oral contraceptives, i.e. medications used to avoid pregnancy, which effect is based on two active hormones, estrogens, and progestins (synthetic progestogens). The medications from this group are most commonly used contraceptive means in the developed and industrialized countries. In a correct usage, such preparations are one of the most efficient birth control means – they are even more effective than condoms. However, if you opt for this type of contraception, you should understand that they do not save you from the sexually transmitted infections (including HIV, herpes, syphilis, and all others). The International Agency for Research on Cancer includes the combination oral contraceptives into the list of carcinogens. However, it is believed that the use of these medications can lower the risk of development of certain types of cancer, for instance, intestine cancer and cancer of the endometrium.
The birth control effect of the preparation, as well as the action of other combined contraceptives, is achieved through a supplementing effect of the two hormones. The most important effects are the suppression of ovulation and changes in the discharges of the cervix which results in the inability of sperm to achieve the ovum.
Desogestrel suppresses the synthesis of gonadotropic hormones, mostly luteinizing hormone, thus preventing the maturation of the follicle (ovulation).
Ethinyl Estradiol, a synthetic analog of follicular hormone estradiol, regulates the menstrual cycle.
Besides the contraceptive properties, the combination medication also has a number of effects that can be taken into account when selecting birth control means. For instance, while using the medication, women start developing more regular menstruations, suffer from fewer cramps during a menstruation, enjoy less intense bleedings, and the symptoms of premenstrual syndrome are less pronounced.
