Brevicon is mostly used to prevent the process of ovulation and hence, pregnancy. The drug has a combination of hormones progestin and estrogen which serve to prevent ovulation during the menstrual cycle. It also thickens vaginal fluid thereby preventing sperm from reaching the egg. Brevicon also changes the uterus lining to completely deter the fertilized egg from attaching itself to the lining. In this case, the fertilized egg will be passed out of the body during menstruation. Apart from prevention of pregnancy, these pills make the menstrual periods more regular, as well as reduce loss of blood and painful periods. In addition, it can significantly decrease the risk of ovarian cysts and treat acne. Below you will find the uses of Brevicon.
