Contraception Doctor Service

Sunya 20/75mcg coated tablets is a contraceptive pill and is used to prevent pregnancy.  Sunya is a Combined Oral Contraceptive (COC) tablet also called pill. It contains two types of female hormones in a low dose - a progestogen: gestodene and an oestrogen: ethinylestradiol.

These help to stop you from getting pregnant, just as your natural hormones would stop you conceiving again when you are already pregnant.

The COC pill protects you against getting pregnant in three ways:

  • Alters the lining of the womb to make it less likely to accept a fertilised egg
  • Stops the ovary from releasing an egg each month (ovulation)
  • Thickens the fluid (at the neck of the womb making it more difficult for the sperm to reach the egg

This combined contraceptive pill can be prescribed for females who experience painful or irregular menstruation in order to ease the pain and regulate the period. 

You can order Sunya tablets from our UK registered online pharmacy and doctor service. To see if you are suitable for this treatment, complete the online assessment and checkout. Our UK registered doctors will review the order and after approval pass the prescription to the Pharmacy team. We will then dispense and dispatch your order to your chosen address.

Before using any medication, it is important to read the Patient Information Leaflet. You can find information leaflets for your medicines by typing them into the search bar at medicines.org, or by contacting us.

Sunya tablet is for oral use only.

Always use this medicine exactly as described in the patient information leaflet or as your doctor or pharmacist has told you. Check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure.

Each pack of Sunya contains 1 calendar strip of 21 coated tablets or 3, 6, 13 calendar strips of 21 coated tablets. The calendar strip has been designed to help you remember to take your tablet, and each tablet marked with the day of the week it should be taken on. 


  • 1. Swallow one tablet per day with water for 21 days. Take the first tablet on the first day of your period. The first day of your cycle - the day when bleeding starts. Take a tablet marked for the day of the week (for example, if it is Tuesday when your period starts, take the tablet marked Tuesday on the pack). Follow the direction of the arrow and continue to take one tablet each day until the strip is empty.

If you start on day 2-5 of your period, you should use another method of contraception as well, such as condom for the first seven tablet-taking days, but this is only for the first pack.

Try to take the pill at the same time each day. It can be taken at any time but taking it at the same time everyday will increase its effectiveness.

  • 2. After 21 days, you will take a 7-day pill free break. During the break, you will have a withdrawal bleed, like your period. You will still be protected from pregnancy during the 7-day break if you took all the pills as instructed during the week before your break.
  • 3. After the 7-day break, start your next strip on the day 8th - even if the bleeding has not ended yet. As long as you take Millinette correctly, you will always start each strip on the same day of the week, and you will always have your monthly period on the same day of the week in each month (in every 28 days). 

What happens if you miss a Sunya pill?

If you miss one pill and are less than 12 hours late then your protection from pregnancy will not be reduced. You should take the missed tablet as soon as you remember even if it means taking two in one day. Take the following pills at your usual time.

If you are more than 12 hours late taking your pill, your protection from pregnancy may be reduced. Continue to take your pill as normal but you should avoid unprotected sex for 7 days. If you have already had unprotected sex (after your missed pill), you will need to use emergency contraception.

If you miss a pill and your strip ends within the next six days, you should skip your usual 7-day break and continue with the next strip of pills.

If you take more Sunya tablet than you should it is not likely that it will do you any harm, but you may feel sick, actually be sick or have some vaginal bleeding. If you have any of these symptoms, you should talk to your doctor who can tell you what, if anything you need to do.
