Brevinor is a hormonal contraceptive pill. It contains a combination of two hormones which mimic the function of progesterone and oestrogen. In doing so, they help to prevent pregnancy by interfering with the menstrual cycle. Brevinor is made by pharmaceutical supplier Pfizer.
- Branded Pfizer product
- 99% effective contraceptive
- Simple one-a-day pill
Each month, the female body undergoes certain processes to prepare itself for pregnancy. Ovulation is one, and this sees the release of an egg from the ovary, ready to be fertilised by male sperm. This egg, once fertilised, then journeys to the uterus, where it implants on the uterine wall (or endometrium) and begins its development into an embryo. Where the egg is not fertilised, it simply breaks down once it reaches the uterus and is discharged along with the endometrium through menstrual bleeding.
The hormones which manage ovulation and the quality of the endometrium are progesterone and oestrogen. By simulating the action of these hormones, ethinylestradiol and norethisterone, the active ingredients in Brevinor, convince the body that ovulation does not need to take place. This thereby stops an egg from being released, and prevents the uterine wall lining from developing to a point where it can sustain egg implantation. These hormones also work to thicken vaginal fluid, so that sperm cannot travel as easily through the cervix.
