How and when to take Microlon

The first tablet of the pack is taken on the first day of menstruation. One tablet is taken daily at the same time, without interruption for 21 days, followed by 7 days tablet free period.

If you forget to take Microlon

Take the most recently missed pill straight away and continue to take your further pills as usual. Use extra precautions (condoms for instance) for the next 7 days.

If you stop taking Microlon

If you are planning a baby, it’s best to use another method of contraception after stopping Microlon until you have had a proper period.

However, it will not cause you or the baby any harm if you get pregnant straight away.
