Read further to find out more about this pill.

What is Cerazette?



Cerazette is a mini-pill, also known as a progestogen-only pill, which provides you with protection against unplanned pregnancy in the same way as the combined contraceptive pill. Unlike the combined contraceptive pill, Cerazette is composed of synthetic versions of only one female sex hormone called progestogen. In clinical trials this pill has proved to be almost 100% effective in preventing pregnancy. It is usually prescribed as an alternative to combination pill, as they cannot be used by women who are regular smokers and above the age of 35 years.

What are the benefits of using Cerazette?



Since Cerazette does not contain the oestrogen hormone, it is considered more suitable for women who develop side effects because of the presence of both the hormones. Most of the mini-pills are unable to prevent ovulation, but Cerazette is a unique mini-pill which can even prevent ovulation so that no egg is released from the ovaries. This makes it as effective as the combined contraceptive pill. It is almost 94% successful in reducing the severe pain associated with periods.

How does Cerazette work?



The majority of mini-pills do not stop the process of ovulation to prevent pregnancy. Hence, most of the women opt for the combined contraceptive pill. However, Cerazette is an exceptional case as it prevents pregnancy in three unique ways. The active ingredient of this medication is desogestrel which works in a very similar way as combination pills. Firstly, it tricks the body to consider that ovulation has already happened due to which the process of ovulation is paused and no egg is released from the ovaries. Secondly, it thickens the cervical mucus so that a sperm finds it difficult to penetrate the womb. Finally, it alters the womb lining due to which a fertilised egg is unable to attach itself and develop there.

Who can take Cerazette?



Women who are sexually active and above 18 years of age can take the help of Cerazette to prevent pregnancy. However, there are certain health conditions which you should keep in mind before using contraceptive pill. You should not use this pill if you are already pregnant, breastfeeding or allergic to desogestrel. You may also be advised to avoid this pill if you suffer from or have a past medical history of breast cancer, jaundice, unexplained vaginal bleeding, thrombosis and liver, heart or kidney problems. You should discuss all your health complications, if you have any, openly with your doctor. This will help him to prescribe a more suitable medication for you.

How do you take Cerazette?



Cerazette comes in calendar strips and should be taken for 28 days without any break in between. The pills should be taken every day at the same time to increase the effectiveness of the pill. It is more effective if you start taking this pill from the first day of your period. If in any case, you are unable to take this pill on the first day then it can be taken until the fifth day of your period, but you would have to use an extra subordinate protection for the next seven days.

What are the side effects?



Although, this pill does not contain oestrogen and may be convenient for most of the women, you may experience some mild side effects. The possible side effects are nausea, headaches, mood swings, decreased sex drive, acne, breast pain, irregular periods and weight gain.
