Some women order Ovral, for its other medical purposes than what it is commonly intended for, such as regularizing their menstrual cycle, treating ovarian cysts, clearing up skin condition like acne and curbing their menstrual pain and bleeding etc.

Ovral contraceptives online traditionally come in two packs- a 28 and 21 days pack. The 28 days regimen consists of 21 active ingredients containing pills with seven additional "placebo" pills. These 'placebo' pills comprise of non-active ingredients and are taken to remember starting a new pack after seven days. While 21 days regimen consist of all active hormonal tablets.

Oral hormonal contraceptives prohibit conception through various mechanisms, but mainly by delaying ovulation. If the egg has not released, there is nothing to be fertilized by the sperm and thus the women cannot conceive.

Ovral tablets contain synthetic forms of female hormones- estrogen and progestin. These hormones stabilize the woman’s natural hormone levels and stop estrogen from peaking mid-periods. In absence of the estrogen hit, the pituitary gland does not excrete other hormones that normally cause the ovaries to release matured ovum.

The synthetic estrogen in the tablet takes effect by –

  • Prohibiting the pituitary gland from creating follicle triggering hormones [FSH] and luteinizing hormone [LH] to stop the ovulation process.
  • Bearing the endometrial lining to stop breakthrough bleeding mid cycle.

Simultaneously, synthetic progestin act to –

  • Prevent the pituitary gland from creating luteinizing hormone for stopping ovum release.
  • Making the endometrial lining inhospitable for travelling sperm.
  • Limiting the sperm’s capability of travelling to fertilize the ovum.
  • Thickening the cervical mucus for stopping sperm movement to prevent fertilization and implantation.

Whether you are abstaining and waiting for seven days to start you new kit or taking the ‘placebo pills’, the absence of hormones from your body may trigger monthly bleeding that may look like your regular periods.

It is completely normal for women taking daily dosage of hormonal oral contraceptive to experience lighter or forgo periods all together. As long as all active pills are taken consistently and correctly, it is possibility of pregnancy is highly unlikely. However, in case of missed tablets, it recommended to take a pregnancy test.

Missing a dose due to forgetfulness, losing it or starting a new pack were you may have begun late, it is best to resume taking the tablet as soon as you remember. If you buy Ovral online, a combination contraceptive pill doesn’t have to be taken at the precise time as everyday like the ‘mini-pills or the progestin-only tablets’. It is however necessary that you take one active pill every 24 hours, i.e. every day.

Missing more than one pill may lessen the probability of pregnancy protection; therefore it is advised to use an alternate form of protection till the pack is finished in such situations.
