How does the Hana® contraceptive pill work?

Have you heard of Hana®, a progestogen-only contraceptive pill? When taken correctly, at the same time every day without a break between packs, Hana® is over 99% effective. But what really happens to your body when you take a contraceptive pill like Hana®?

In 2021 we surveyed over 1,000 people, and 53% of them said they didn’t know how progestogen-only contraceptive pills work. We get it – with so many contraceptive options out there and them all working in varying ways, it’s bound to get confusing for someone looking for specific information.

We think you deserve to know the facts. When it comes to your body and your contraception, you should feel empowered to know what works for you and why. When you’re making important decisions around how to prevent unplanned pregnancies, you should have all of the answers.

Medical products, in particular, can be a little bewildering to try and educate yourself on – there’s so much information to absorb and, as we know, our bodies are complicated things, so learning about them and how certain medications can work or affect them can feel tricky and inaccessible.

Don’t you just wish that sometimes the facts could be presented to you in a way that’s understandable and easy to digest? We’re here to help with that…

Hana® 75µg film-coated tablets contains desogestrel and is an oral contraception for women of child bearing age to prevent pregnancy. Always read the instructions on the package leaflet carefully.
