Cilique | 3 x one month pack
Contraceptive pill CILIQUE® is used to prevent pregnancy.
Each tablet contains a minute quantity of two distinct female hormones, norgestimate and ethinylestradiol.
Pills containing two hormones are referred to as “combination” pills.
A combined contraceptive pill protects you by preventing the ovary from releasing an egg each month (ovulation), by thickening the fluid in your cervix (at the neck of the womb) to make it harder for sperm to reach the egg, and by altering the lining of the womb to make it less likely to accept a fertilised egg.
If you wish to learn more about how your medication works, please consult your physician, nurse, or pharmacist.
What is the difference between the medications CILEST® and CILIQUE®?
These pills contain exactly the same quantities and types of active ingredients, but they are manufactured by different companies and therefore have different names.
What if I miss a CILIQUE® dose?
Follow the instructions for missing a dose or consult the Patient Information Leaflet included in every bottle of CILIQUE®.
If you miss multiple pills, consult your doctor, nurse, or pharmacist.
What side effects am I susceptible to?
As with all medications, CILIQUE® may cause side effects, though not everyone will experience them. Common side effects include depressive mood, headache, migraine, nausea, breast pain, tenderness, menstrual disorders, intermenstrual bleeding, thick white vaginal discharge, and vaginal yeast infection. Consult your physician or pharmacist if you experience any adverse effects, including those not listed above. Depression and a depressed mood are negative side effects of hormonal contraceptives. In the case of mood changes and depressive symptoms, consult your physician.
How likely am I to develop a blood clot while taking CILIQUE®?
The use of any oral contraceptive pill increases your risk of developing a blood clot in comparison to women who do not take any contraceptive pill. This can occur in either a vein or an artery. This increased risk, however, is lower than the risk of developing a blood clot during pregnancy.
What medications should I avoid while taking oral contraceptives?
Some medications may inhibit the effectiveness of your contraceptive pill, necessitating additional contraceptive precautions. Antibiotics, St. John’s Wort, and medications for epilepsy, tuberculosis, HIV, and fungal infections are examples. Your pill may also inhibit the effectiveness of other medications, including ciclosporin (an immunosuppressant) and lamotrigine (to treat epilepsy). If you are uncertain about taking other medications with CILIQUE®, your doctor, nurse, or pharmacist will provide guidance.
Am I a candidate for breast cancer?
It has been observed that women using combined oral contraceptive pills have a slightly higher incidence of breast cancer compared to women of the same age who do not take any contraceptive pills, but it is unknown whether the combined oral contraceptive pill causes this increased risk. The risk of breast cancer increases with continued use of the combined oral contraceptive pill, but returns to normal within ten years after discontinuation.
