Mercilon is a contraceptive treatment, produced by Merck Sharp and Dohme Limited. It contains the agents ethinylestradiol and desogestrel, which are synthetic hormones designed to perform in a similar manner to oestrogen and progesterone. These synthetic agents work by stopping eggs from being released by the ovary.

This treatment should only be applied according to the instructions. As with any hormonal contraceptive, it does not provide 100 per cent guaranteed protection against pregnancy, even in cases where it has been applied correctly. You or your partner should always consider using a barrier contraceptive, such as a condom, as an additional precaution.
