Buy Maexeni Tablets

Maexeni Tablets are a combined oral contraceptive pill that are designed to prevent you from getting pregnant.

 

How Maexeni Tablets work

Maexeni Tablets contain two types of female sex hormones: oestrogen and progestogen. 

The tablets prevent an egg from being released from your ovaries by making the mucus in your cervix thicker. With thicker mucus, it means that it is more difficult for sperm to enter the womb. 

 

Directions

Always take Maexeni Tablets exactly as described in the patient information leaflet or as your doctor / Chemist4U pharmacist has told you. 

Take 1 tablet every day at the same time. 

The strip contains 21 tablets. After you have completed the strip you should take a break for 7 days. You should experience ‘breakthrough bleeding’ during your 7-day break.

 

When you can first start taking Maexeni 

No hormonal contraception has been taken in the previous cycle

You should start taking Maexeni on the first day of your period. Starting the tablets on the first day of your period will immediately protect you from pregnancy. 

 

Changing from another contraceptive pill

If you are currently taking a 21 or 28-day pill: start taking Maexeni the next day once you have finished your previous strip. You will be protected from your first pill. You will not experience any bleeding until you finish your first strip of Maexeni.

If you are taking a progestogen-only pill: Start Maexeni on the first day of bleeding, even if you have already taken your previous pill. 

 

After miscarriage or abortion

If you have had a miscarriage or an abortion during the first three months of pregnancy, your doctor might advise you to start taking Maexeni straight away.

If you have had a miscarriage or an abortion after the third month of pregnancy then you must talk to your doctor for advice. You may need to use extra contraception for a short time.

 

After childbirth

You can start taking Maexeni 21 to 28 days after childbirth. If you start taking the pill after 28 days, additional contraception is required.

 

Side effects

Maexeni Tablets may cause side effects in some people, but these won’t affect everybody. Common side effects include: 

 

  • Feeling sick 
  • Stomach ache 
  • Weight gain 
  • Headaches 
  • Depressive moods 
  • Sore or painful breasts 

 

If you experience any side effects, including any not included in the patient information leaflet, you can report them using the MHRA Yellow Card Scheme.

 

Serious side effects

Seek emergency medical attention if you notice any signs of a severe allergic reaction, symptoms of which include swelling of the face and throat, skin rash, breathing difficulties and/or loss of consciousness. 

The risk of developing a blood clot is higher in your first year of taking the contraceptive pill, however, this is a rare side effect. After the first year, the risk gets smaller but is always higher than if you weren't using a combined oral contraceptive pill. 

If you notice any signs or symptoms of a blood clot you must seek emergency medical attention. 

The risk of breast cancer is slightly higher in women taking any contraceptive pill. A woman’s risk is higher the older she is rather than how long she has been on the pill for. When a woman stops taking the pill, the risk of breast cancer gradually reduces.
