Ginette 35 general information

What is Ginette 35 used for?

Ginette 35 tablets are used to treat women with severe signs of androgenisation (overproduction of androgen), that can produce conditions like hirsutism (unwanted hair) and androgenic alopecia (hair loss) both caused by excess androgen production. These conditions are often accompanied by acne, inflammation and seborrhoea (greasy skin from too much sebum). Ginette 35 tablets reduce the symptoms of androgen-dependent conditions where oral antibiotic or local treatment alone has not been successful. Ginette 35 tablets can also be used for oral contraception at the same time as they are being used to treat androgen-dependent conditions, however, they should not be used for contraception alone. Ginette 35 tablets can also be used for the treatment of polycystic ovary syndrome, which is also caused by excess androgen and is usually accompanied by acne and hirsutism.

How does Ginette 35 work?

Ginette 35 tablets contain a combination of ethinyloestradiol, a synthetic oestrogen, and cyproterone acetate, which is a derivative of progestogen and is also an antiandrogen. These two hormones work together to reverse the effects of too much androgen, while at the same time protecting against pregnancy. Although androgens, one of which is testosterone, are considered primarily male hormones, women also produce androgens, although in much lower amounts. Androgens have several functions in the female body, including puberty related changes like pubic hair growth, preventing bone loss, libido and for the production of oestrogen. However, some women produce too much androgen and this can cause hirsutism (unwanted hair) and other unwanted symptoms of androgen overproduction like acne and/or seborrhoea (greasy skin from too much sebum) and androgen-dependent alopecia. Cyproterone in Ginette 35 tablets blocks the production of androgens by the ovaries and binds to the androgen receptors on specific cells in the pilosebaceous unit in the skin, containing sebum glands and hair follicles, blocking the action of androgens like over stimulation of sebum and over production of hair. The ethinyloestradiol component enhances the effect of cyproterone by reducing the amount of androgens in the circulation, relieving symptoms like acne and hirsutism. The combination of a progestagen (cyproterone) and an oestrogen (ethinyloestradiol) in Ginette 35 tablets, provides effective contraception, by blocking ovulation, preventing development of the endometrium so that a fertilised egg would not be able to implant and grow, and preventing the thinning of cervical secretions so that sperm cannot get through.

However, some women produce too much androgen and this can cause over production of sebum (oil produced by sebum glands in the skin) which blocks hair follicles causing acne and/or seborrhoea (greasy skin from too much sebum). Cyproterone in Ginette 35 tablets blocks the production of androgens by the ovaries and binds to the androgen receptors on specific cells in the pilosebaceous units in the skin, containing sebum glands and hair follicles, blocking the over stimulation of sebum and over production of hair by the action of androgens.

What are the health risks of Ginette 35?

Combination contraceptive pills like Ginette 35 can increase risk of thrombosis (blood clots), which can have serious consequence depending on where the clot forms. There is also an increased risk of breast cancer.

How should Ginette 35 be taken?

While you are taking Ginette 35 you should not use an additional hormonal contraceptive, as this will expose you to an excessive dose of hormones and is not necessary for effective contraception.
Each pack Ginette 35 contains 21 pills and you should take one tablet a day for 21 days and then you will have 7 days off, during which time you should have a menstrual bleed. When you have had the 7 tablet-free days, start a new pack the next day. If you have gastrointestinal problems like vomiting or diarrhoea within 3-4 hours of taking a tablet, this is the same as missing a pill and you should take other contraceptive precautions for the next 7 days. You should take Ginette 35 continually to ensure effective contraception. It may take several months for your skin condition to clear up completely and you should take Ginette 35 for as long as your doctor recommends.

How long should you take Ginette 35?

You should expect your acne to clear up completely within a few months, but in particularly severe cases treatment for longer may be necessary before the full benefit is seen. You may be advised to keep tasking your Ginette 35 tablets for a few more months after the acne has disappeared and you should then change to another oral contraceptive.

Missed dose of Ginette 35

If you miss a dose of Ginette 35 and are less than 12 hours late in taking your tablet, take it as soon as you remember and take the next one at your usual time. You are still protected against pregnancy. If you are more than 12 hours late in taking your pill, take the last tablet as soon as you remember and take the next one at your normal time, which may mean taking 2 tablets in one day. Contraceptive protection may be reduced and you are at risk of becoming pregnant, unless you take other contraceptive precautions for the next 7 days.

How should Ginette 35 be stored?

Keep your Ginette 35 tablets in their calendar pack until use. Store at room temperature below 25°C.
