Description of Demulen
The generic name of Demulen is Ethynodiol/Ethinyl Estradiol. The drug contains two hormones, Progestin and Estrogen. Demulen is available in the form of a tablet indicated for oral administration. It is available in two strengths, Demulen 1-35 and Demulen 1-50. The medication is supplied in two different packagings. One Demulen birth control pill pack contains 21 active pills, while the other Demulen pack contains 7 additional reminders pills along with 21 active pills. You may buy Demulen online. However, this hormone birth control pill may cause side effects, so you should consult your doctor before using it.
Indications & Dosage of Demulen
Demulen is indicated to prevent pregnancy. The drug is specifically prescribed in circumstances where low estrogen formulations are not effective in conception control.
Demulen works in three different ways to prevent pregnancy. One, it prevents the release of mature egg from the ovarian follicle. Second, it changes the consistency of cervical mucus, which makes it difficult for the sperm to reach the egg and fertilize it. Third, it changes the lining of the womb, making it difficult for the fertilized egg to attach to the womb.
Your doctor will give specific instructions regarding the use of Demulen. You will be required to take the birth control pills in a specific order. The dosage depends on the type of Demulen you are using such as the 21-pill pack or 28-pill pack.
The first pill from the 21-pill pack should be taken on the first day of the menstrual period or the first Sunday after the menstrual period. Thereafter, you need to take one pill every day until all pills in the pack get finished. After finishing all tablets from the pack, you should not take any Demulen pill for next 7 days. Start using a new Demulen 21 pill pack on 8th day after 7 day off period.
The 28-pill pack contains 21 active pills and 7 inactive pills (does not contain any hormones) also known as reminder pills. You need to start using the birth control pack similarly as the 21 pill pack. After you have finished taking the last active pill from the pack, you need to start taking inactive pills from the next day onwards. After taking all 28 pills from the pack, you need to start with the new Demulen 28 pill pack.
