Ovranette is a monophasic combined pill licensed by Pfizer. As well as providing contraceptive protection, the medicine also helps to reduce symptoms associated with heavy periods, such as increased bleeding and pain. The treatment works by replicating the function of naturally occurring hormones, and making the body think that preparations for pregnancy have already taken place.

The process by which the female body makes itself ready for pregnancy is called ovulation. This happens once a month, and is characterised by the release of an egg from the ovary, into the fallopian tube. Once the egg has emerged from the ovary, it is ready to be fertilised by male sperm.
If the egg is successfully fertilised, it makes its way to the uterus, where it adheres itself to the uterine wall and starts to grow into a foetus. However, when the egg is not fertilised, it simply degenerates once it reaches the uterus and is excreted along with the lining of the womb during menstruation.
The active ingredients in Ovranette PFIZER are artificial hormones, called ethinylestradiol and levonorgestrel. These mimic the behaviour of oestrogen and progesterone respectively, and prevent pregnancy in three ways.
Firstly, they stop the ovary from releasing an egg into the womb. Secondly, they manage the lining of the uterine wall, and make it so that an egg cannot implant there as easily. And thirdly, they alter the consistency of vaginal fluid, so that sperm cannot move around as freely after being released into the womb.
