What is Generic Ovral and what are its uses ?

Norgestrel 0.5 mg + Ethinyl Estradiol 0.05 mg (Generic Ovral) is an oral contraceptive. Oral contraceptives are commonly known as 'the pill.'

Norgestrel 0.5 mg + Ethinyl Estradiol 0.05 mg (Generic Ovral) is also known as a birth control pill. Norgestrel 0.5 mg + Ethinyl Estradiol 0.05 mg (Generic Ovral) contains a form of ethinyl estradiol and a form of norgestrel, which are both female hormones involved in conception. Estrogen and progesterone regulate a woman's menstrual cycle, and the fluctuating levels of these hormones play an essential role in fertility. Norgestrel 0.5 mg + Ethinyl Estradiol 0.05 mg (Generic Ovral) is thereby used to prevent pregnancy.

Norgestrel 0.5 mg + Ethinyl Estradiol 0.05 mg (Generic Ovral) also has other effects that inhibit pregnancy. Norgestrel 0.5 mg + Ethinyl Estradiol 0.05 mg (Generic Ovral) causes the cervical mucous to thicken, which makes it harder for sperm to move toward the uterus, and they prevent the attachment of an egg to the uterus.

How does Generic Ovral Works (Mechanism) ?

Norgestrel 0.5 mg + Ethinyl Estradiol 0.05 mg (Generic Ovral) exhibits its mechanism of action by preventing the release of an egg from the ovary and causing changes in the mucus of the cervix, which makes it difficult for the sperm to penetrate and for an egg to implant.

Norgestrel 0.5 mg + Ethinyl Estradiol 0.05 mg (Generic Ovral) prevents pregnancy by inhibiting the release of the Leutinizing hormone and Follicle stimulating hormone from the pituitary gland in the brain. LH and FSH play key roles in the development of the egg and preparation of the lining of the uterus for implantation of the embryo. Norgestrel 0.5 mg + Ethinyl Estradiol 0.05 mg (Generic Ovral) also makes the uterine mucus that surrounds the egg more difficult for sperm to penetrate and, therefore, for fertilization to take place. In some women, Norgestrel 0.5 mg + Ethinyl Estradiol 0.05 mg (Generic Ovral) inhibits ovulation (release of the egg).

In addition, Norgestrel 0.5 mg + Ethinyl Estradiol 0.05 mg (Generic Ovral) produces alterations in the genital tract, including changes in the cervical mucus, rendering it unfavorable for sperm penetration even if ovulation occurs. Changes in the endometrium may also occur, producing an unfavorable environment for nidation (the organic process whereby a fertilized egg becomes implanted in the lining of the uterus of placental mammals}. Norgestrel 0.5 mg + Ethinyl Estradiol 0.05 mg (Generic Ovral) may alter the tubal transport of the ova through the fallopian tubes.
