Hi Kasandra, you can start just before your next injection is due. It will take 2 weeks to a month before you are 100% safe on the Mercilon so just take extra precaution the first month

Hi, is Mercilon safe? I started taking Mercilon again after 1 year. I' ve only taken 4 pills and have done it today twice without protection from my partner? Is it safe? Is there still anything I can do to make sure I won' t get pregnant? Thank you.
