Synphase is a combined contraceptive measure which are commonly referred to as ‘the pill’, taken to reduce the risk of pregnancy following unprotected sex.

Synphase is a combined contraceptive pill which you take to prevent getting pregnant. It contains a progestogen hormone called norethisterone and an oestrogen hormone called ethinylestradiol, which work together to prevent an egg being released from your ovaries. Synphase also makes the mucus in your cervix thicker, making it difficult for sperm to reach the egg.

Synphase is a 21 day pill. This means you take one each day for 21 days, followed by 7 days when you take no pills.

The benefits of taking the pill include:

  • It is one of the most reliable reversible methods of contraception if used correctly
  • It doesn’t interrupt your sexual experience
  • It usually makes your periods regular, lighter and less painful
  • It may help with pre-menstrual symptoms.

This treatment can be obtained through our Online Doctor service. Simply add to basket and head to the checkout to begin your consultation.

A pack of Synphase contains different coloured tablets:

  • Seven blue ones
  • Nine white ones
  • Five more blue ones
  • The different coloured tablets contain different amounts of the active ingredients. When you take them in the correct order they imitate the natural rise and fall of your body’s hormone levels during your monthly cycle.

    Take one tablet every day, in the right order. Each blister strip has a row of bubbles marked with the days of the week. When you take your first tablet, press the bubble for the day of the week you have started taking the tablets, for example, if you take your first tablet on a Tuesday, press the bubble marked ‘Tue’. This will help you to remember the day of the week you started the pack. Each new pack after this will also start on the same day of the week.

    Take Synphase tablets exactly as your doctor has told you. If you are unclear on how to take this medicine, please check with your doctor or pharmacist.

Please note, like all medicine, Synphase can cause side effects – although this does not apply to everyone who has taken them. Side effects are usually temporary with continued treatment or disappear when you stop tacking the medicine.

Before taking your medicine please read the patient information leaflet in detail to acquaint yourself with the potential side effects.

If you have any questions or concerns, please speak to your GP in the first instance. Alternatively, contact our Online Clinic team for further assistance.
