Millinette is a combined contraceptive pill that contains a low dose of oestrogen (it’s sometimes referred to as a ‘low-dose’ combined pill). Some women are more sensitive to oestrogen than others, and are more prone to side effects from it. Low-dose options like Millinette may be particularly suitable in these cases.
You take Millinette for 21 days, and then have a 7-day ‘pill-free’ break from it. It’s a 21-day pill. But you can also use it continuously (1 pill every day, with no pill-free break) or more extensively (1 pill daily for 9 weeks, and then no pills for the following 4 or 7 days). If you’d rather take it on a continuous or extended basis, our registered prescriber can discuss this with you during your consultation.
