  • If you are pregnant, do not take NOVELON
  • If you think you may be pregnant while taking NOVELON stop immediately and contact your doctor
  • If you are planning to have a baby during this treatment, contact your doctor for advice
  • Use of NOVELON is not advisable if you are breast-feeding
  • The use of NOVELON is not recommended in children and adolescents under 18 years of age
  • Use of NOVELON is unlikely to affect your capacity to drive or use of machines


  • Tell your doctor if you are taking, have recently taken or might take any other medicines including medicines obtained without prescription or herbal products


  • Always take this medicine exactly as your doctor has told you
  • Take one tablet of NOVELON every day with a small amount of water
  • You may take the tablets with or without food, but you should take the tablets every day around the same time.
  • The strip contains 21 tablets. Next to each tablet is printed the day of the week that it should be taken. If, for example you start on a Wednesday, take a tablet with “WED” next to it. Follow the direction of the arrow on the strip until all 21 tablets have been taken
  • Then take no tablets for 7 days. In the course of these 7 tablet-free days (otherwise called a stop or gap week) bleeding should begin. This so-called “withdrawal bleeding” usually starts on the 2nd or 3rd day of the gap week
  • On the 8th day after the last tablet of NOVELON tablets (that is, after the 7-day gap week), you should start with the following strip, whether your bleeding has stopped or not

If you take more NOVELON

  • If you take several tablets at once then you may experience nausea or vomiting. Young girls may have bleeding from the vagina in such case, contact your doctor for advice

If you forget to take NOVELON

  • If you are less than 12 hours late taking a tablet, the protection against pregnancy is not reduced. Take the tablet as soon as you remember and then take the following tablets again at the usual time
  • If you are more than 12 hours late taking a tablet, the protection against pregnancy may be reduced. The greater the number of tablets that you have forgotten, the greater is the risk of becoming pregnant

If you stop taking NOVELON

  • Do not stop taking NOVELON unless told by your doctor

Additional Information

The combined contraceptive pill protects you against getting pregnant in three ways. These hormones:

  • stop the ovary from releasing an egg each month (ovulation)
  • thicken the fluid at the neck of the womb making it more difficult for the sperm to reach the egg
  • alter the lining of the womb to make it less likely to accept a fertilized egg


Using a combined hormonal contraceptive such as desogestrel/ethinylestradiol increases your risk of developing a blood clot compared with not using one. In rare cases a blood clot can block blood vessels and cause serious problems

Blood clots can develop:

  • in veins (referred to as a ‘venous thrombosis’, ‘venous thromboembolism’ or VTE)
  • in the arteries (referred to as an ‘arterial thrombosis’, ‘arterial thromboembolism’ or ATE)
  • recovery from blood clots is not always complete. Rarely, there may be serious lasting effects or very rarely, they may be fatal
  • Keep this medicine out of reach of children
  • Store at room temperature (15-25°C)
  • Do not use this medicine after the expiry date
