How ovral (ethinyl estradiol and norgestrel) pills works?

How ovral (ethinyl estradiol and norgestrel) pills works?

Prevent egg release: Ovral (ethinyl estradiol and norgestrel) and all birth control pills contain hormones that prevent ovulation (release of egg by your ovary).

It thins the lining of the uterus which makes it an unpleasant environment for a fertilized egg. ...Read more

I-pill v Ovral (ethinyl estradiol and norgestrel) L pil: Sorry but being trained & practicing in states, I'm not familiar w/medications from around the world, although I'm learning quickly w/so many non-us questions. I-pill is sold in india as emergency contraception while ovral (ethinyl estradiol and norgestrel) l-pill is standard birth control. You can delay your menses by skipping placebo sugar pills & starting next month's pack immediately. It's not clear to me what you did on 12th. ...Read more

I am taking BC pill Ovral (ethinyl estradiol and norgestrel) L from 2 months but from past 5-6 days I am having some spotting,,, in how many days this breakthrough bleed should stop??

Breakthrough bleed: Breakthrough bleeding (bleeding at the wrong time) is very common on birth control. It happens in about 1/3 of users. Its no big deal and usually self corrects over time. If you are not satisfied or it continues to happen then consider using a different birth control method. It is a common side effect and does not mean something is wrong or that the pill is not working. ...Read more

After an unsuccessful IUI on 27 th June, doctor advice to take OVRAL (ethinyl estradiol and norgestrel) L. Should I take this tablets? Can I have sex?

After an unsuccessful IUI on 27 th June, doctor advice to take OVRAL (ethinyl estradiol and norgestrel) L. Should I take this tablets? Can I have sex?

Ovidrel?: I could be wrong with my answer but I believe you mean Ovidrel. This medication is an injection that makes you ovulate. Technically Ovidrel doesn't increase your chance of pregnancy over the IUI itself, it just makes the timing better.

The stim is what affects your chances. Clomid (clomiphene) and Femara are common weak treatments. Injectable stim meds could give you that extra boost. Talk to your doctor. ...Read more

Ovarian cyst: The ovarian cyst with septations is small, and probably benign. The myometrial fibroid is also probably benign. A trial of "ovral" (a birth control pill) may diminish both in time, but your doctor may also want a sample of tissue from the ovarian cyst which is gotten via laparoscopy because of the septations. The chances of abnormal cell growth are small. Discuss options with your doctor. ...Read more

Okay: So long as you don't have a strong family history for ovarian or breast cancer, this small cyst on the ovary isn't concerning. It's very small in size. And is likely an incidental finding on ultrasound. The fibroid you described as well is also benign and small. The most important and definitive opinion comes from your doctor who knows you the best. But overall, these findings are not worrisome. ...Read more
