What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.

    Microgynon 150 30 For Birth Control:

    Microgynon 150/30 (Levonorgestrel/Ethinyl Estradiol)

    Microgynon (Levonorgestrel and Ethinyl Estradiol) is an estrogen and progestin combination used to prevent pregnancy. A doctor may prescribe Microgynon (Levonorgestrel and Ethinyl Estradiol) for additional conditions.

    Microgynon contains two types of female sex hormones, estrogen, and progestogen. These hormones stop you getting pregnant by working in three primary ways. First, it prevents the egg from being released from your ovaries. Second, it makes the fluid (mucus) in your cervix thicker which makes it more difficult for sperm to enter the womb. Lastly, it prevents the lining of your womb from thickening enough for an egg to grow in it.

    If you want to buy birth control pills online, then Microgynon 150 30 is one of the best options available at Canada Pharmacy. Your order will be delivered to your doorstep.


    Microgynon is a 21-day Pill – you take one each day for 21 days, followed by 7 days when you take no pills. If it’s been more than 12 hours since you missed the last tablet, the contraceptive effect will no longer be assured. Take the tablet as quickly as possible and use an additional contraceptive barrier.
