Product information

Qlaira is a pill used to provide birth control. The active constituents in it are man-made hormones, which simulate the action of progesterone and oestrogen. It is a branded product made by Bayer, which can also relieve symptoms related to heavy periods, such as pain and excessive bleeding.

  1. 99% competent at preventing pregnancy
  2. Branded Bayer product
  3. Simple to use everyday pill

A biological series of events take place inside the female body each month in order to prepare it for pregnancy. The most significant event in this process is ovulation, whereby the ovary produces an egg. When this egg is freed into the womb, it travels along the fallopian tubes to the uterus. If it is not inseminated by sperm, it breaks down when it arrives at the uterus, and is discharged with the lining of the womb during menstruation.

However, in cases where the egg is successfully penetrated by sperm, it then attaches to the uterine wall and progresses to the embryonic stage, eventually developing into a baby. Progesterone thickens the endometrium, and its elevated level suppresses the release of an egg. Oestrogen peaks and stimulates ovulation, and is also responsible for the thickening of the endometrium.

The synthetic versions of these in Qlaira are called estradiol (oestrogen) and dienogest (progesterone), and their presence helps to persuade the body that ovulation has already happened and does not need to take place. This results in the production and release of eggs ceasing, and the quality of the endometrium being adjusted so that it cannot receive an egg. Sperm motility is also slowed down by these agents, through the thickening of vaginal mucus.

If you’re busy and need to get access to contraception, it isn’t always convenient making an appointment and waiting in line at the local chemist. We aim to make your life easier, by offering you the facility to buy Qlaira online. Our UK-based pharmacy will dispense and ship your item as soon as it has been approved by our doctor, and you can expect to receive it in just one working day of successful consultation.
