Eloine is a combined oral contraceptive pill manufactured by Bayer. It is a low dose pill consisting of two hormones, which are synthetic versions of progesterone and oestrogen. Low dose contraceptives are used by those who might be sensitive to the side effects incurred by a regular dose. Eloine is only available to buy online or in person with a prescription from a registered doctor.
Pills such as Eloine work by inhibiting the processes in the body which prepare it for pregnancy each month. Ovulation, whereby the ovary produces an egg ready to be fertilised by male sperm, is triggered by a drop in certain hormones. This egg then travels along the fallopian tube to the uterus where, if it has been fertilised, it attaches to the endometrium (the wall of the uterus). The fertilised egg will then develop into a foetus. If the egg is not fertilised, it simply breaks down upon reaching the uterus and leaves the body during menstruation.
The synthetic hormones in Eloine work by supplementing falling hormone levels in the body, thus tricking it into thinking that ovulation has already taken place. Therefore, an egg is not released by the ovary. Pills such as this one also change the consistency of the wall of the uterus, so that it is harder for an egg to implant there. They also perform the added function of thickening fluid in the cervix, so that sperm cannot travel through and initiate fertilisation.
Women who are sensitive to the levels of hormone contained in regular dose contraceptive pills may be issued a lower dose option, to reduce the risk of side effects. Like those containing the regular dose, this pill is still 99% effective at preventing pregnancy.
