What is Ovranette?

Ovranette is a type of combined contraceptive pill. It contains ethinylestradiol and levonorgestrel, which are synthetic versions of the female hormones oestrogen and progesterone. Ovranette is primarily used for the prevention of pregnancy, but can also be used to reduce period pain or to delay your periods for a special event.

Can you buy Ovranette over the counter in the UK?

Ovranette is not available over the counter in the UK, but it can be obtained on prescription from a number of different sources including your GP, sexual health centres and family planning clinics. Once you have been prescribed Ovranette, you can get a repeat prescription from online pharmacies, such as Dr Felix.


Alternative Treatments

The combined contraceptive pill is not suitable for everyone. Depending on your age, smoking status, risk of blood clots and past medical history, you may be recommended the progesterone-only pill instead. The progesterone-only pill does not contain oestrogen, so it does not have the same side effects as combined pills. 

There are a number of other hormonal contraceptive options available on prescription including the IUS (Mirena coil), the implant, contraceptive patches (Evra), contraceptive injections (Depo-provera) and vaginal rings (NuvaRing). 

Non-hormonal contraception, such as condoms, the diaphragm and femidoms are available without a prescription. The copper coil (IUD) is a non-hormonal contraceptive device, but it is only available on prescription because it must be fitted by a trained medical professional.
