Alesse (Ovral-L) is a popular birth control medication (oral contraceptive) produced by the pharmaceutical company Wyeth Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Allesse (Ovral-L) is available under the following brand name: Aviane, Lutera, Orsythia.
Alesse (Ovral-L) is a combined monophasic oral birth control drug. Contraceptive effect is associated with the suppression of pituitary secretion of gonadotropin-releasing hormone.
The progestogen component (progestin) Levorgestrel acts at the receptor level without prior metabolic transformation. The estrogen component is ethinyl estradiol. Levorgestrel contributes to the blockade of LH and FSH release from the hypothalamus, inhibition of pituitary gonadotropin-releasing hormone secretion and ovulation development. The contraceptive effect is enhanced by Ethinyl Estradiol. Ethynil estradio maintains high viscosity of cervical mucus making the sperm penetration in the uterus more difficult.
