Velivet is a contraceptive that is made from two female hormones; Ethinyl estradiol and Desogestrel. These hormones work by preventing pregnancy from occurring. Velivet works by stopping the ova from being fully developed every month. This way, the eggs cannot be fertilized by a sperm and formation of an embryo is inhibited. Velivet also alters the uterine lining and the cervical mucus. This way, it prevents the sperm cells from getting to the uterus. It also prevents a fertilized embryo from implanting itself on the uterine walls. Velivet can also be administered in preventing painful periods and decreasing excessive loss of blood during menstruation. It can also aid in making menstrual periods be more regular and reduce the risks of developing ovarian cysts.
