Elevin is an oral birth control tablet, which is made available in the UK by a company called MedRX. It is referred to as a combined pill, which means that it contains two synthetic hormones which supersede the normal process of menstruation. This pill is taken once a day for 21 continuous days, then followed up by a seven day period of rest. After this, the cycle is started again.

In the body, certain hormones are responsible for helping the body to ready itself for pregnancy each month. When levels of progesterone and oestrogen in the body fall, certain processes begin; one of which is ovulation. This sees the release of an egg (or ova) into the fallopian tube, where it is available for fertilisation by sperm. The ova, whether it is fertilised or not, then travels to the uterus. Fertilised eggs attach to the endometrium, which is the wall of the uterus, and begin to develop into an embryo. Non-fertilised eggs simply break down and exit the body through menstrual discharge.
The functioning agents in Elevin are synthetic versions of progesterone and oestrogen, called levonorgestrel and ethinylestradiol. Their presence in the body makes it think that ovulation has already occurred, and does not need to take place again; and so prevents the release of an egg. In addition to this, the synthetic hormones also alter the quality of the uterine lining, so that an egg cannot implant there as easily and develop; and increase the concentration of cervical fluid, so sperm cannot move around as freely inside the womb.
