Brands of contraceptive similar to Microgynon 30

Ovranette, Rigevidon and Levest contraceptive pills contain the same ingredients at the same strength and dosage as Microgynon 30, and work in exactly the same way.

Alternative contraceptive pills

Please note: Dr Fox can only issue the same pill you are already taking. Women cannot change their regular oral contraceptive pill to a new type without seeing a doctor face-to-face.

Women using online services to obtain contraception should have regular pill checks at their doctor's surgery (usually every 6 months). Women ordering regularly from Dr Fox are required to provide GP details and consent to a notification of supply letter being sent to inform surgeries.

In addition to Microgynon Dr Fox supplies all other brands of contraceptive pills including other mini pills and combined pills. Combined pills contain two types of hormone: oestrogens and progestogens. Mini pills contain progestogens only.

Why is my GP switching me from Microgynon to Rigevidon?

It is currently cheaper to the NHS to provide Rigevidon. Doctors may switch some women from Microgynon to Rigevidon as an NHS cost cutting measure.

In theory, at least, there should be no difference. The side effects and effectiveness of the two pills should be the same. The active hormonal ingredients are, after all, identical. However, for whatever reason, some women are uncomfortable with a change, over which they may not have had much say. Some women complain of feeling less well. It remains to be seen whether complaints about the switch settle down.

What is Microgynon 30?

Microgynon 30 is a daily hormonal contraceptive to prevent pregnancy manufactured by Bayer pharmaceutical company containing the following active ingredients:

  • 150 micrograms of the progestogen levonorgestrel
  • 30 micrograms of the oestrogen ethinylestradiol
