How does Microgynon 30 work?

The oestrogen and progestogen in each Microgynon 30 pill, work to prevent pregnancy by:

  • preventing ovulation, which is the release of an egg from your ovaries
  • thickening the fluid in your cervix, so it’s harder for sperm to get into your womb
  • thinning the lining of your womb, so it’s harder for a fertilised egg to implant itself

When taken perfectly, Microgynon 30 can be 99% effective at preventing pregnancy. But there are several factors that can make the pill less effective, such as missing pills, vomiting, diarrhoea, and some medications. It’s important to remember that Microgynon 30 does not protect against sexually transmitted infections (STIs). To protect against STIs, you’ll need to use extra barrier contraception, such as condoms.
