Cerelle is a progestogen-only female birth control pill (sometimes known as “The Mini-Pill”). It includes no oestrogen and only artificial progestogen components. The POP (Progestogen Only Pill) thickens the mucus in the cervix, making it more difficult for sperm to access the egg. It can also prevent ovulation. Taking one Cerelle tablet at the same time each day will provide you with almost 99 percent effective protection against undesired pregnancy. This pill is recommended for women who are oestrogen sensitive, smoke, or are above the age of 35.

FAQ

Do you have any other questions?

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions concerning Desogestrel. Please contact us if you’d like yours answered.

Starting on the first day of the cycle, one tablet should be taken every day at the same time (if delayed by longer than 12 hours contraceptive protection may be lost). If desogestrel is started up to and including day 5 of the menstrual cycle, no further contraceptive precautions are required; if started after this period, additional contraceptive precautions are required for 2 days.

Changing from a mixed oral contraceptive to a single oral contraception
Without a break, begin the day after the combined oral contraceptive course is completed (or in the case of ED tablets omitting the inactive ones).

Without the requirement for extra contraceptive precautions, oral progestogen-only contraceptives can be started up to and including day 21 postpartum. Additional contraceptive precautions are required for two days if initiated more than 21 days after delivery.

What does desogestrel do?


Desogestrel is a type of the progestogen progesterone, which is a synthetic form.

There are several types of progestogen, and they can all prevent pregnancy by thickening the mucus in the cervix, thereby preventing sperm from reaching an egg. Desogestrel has the additional benefit of preventing ovulation. To achieve this effect, however, daily desogestrel administration is required.

How is desogestrel different from other types of birth control pills?
There are two primary types of birth control pills:

This type of contraceptive contains synthetic oestrogen and progestogen.
Mini or progestogen-only – this type contains only progestogen.
The majority of women who use oral contraceptives take combined pills. This type is typically taken for three weeks, followed by a seven-day break during which a period occurs. The progestogen-only pill is taken continuously, without a break, and the majority of formulations must be taken within the same three-hour window every day. Please read the enclosed information leaflet carefully for further instructions.

Similar to other types of mini-pills, desogestrel must be taken every day without exception. However, it can be administered within a 12-hour window (instead of a 3-hour window). It is also available in pharmacies without a prescription under the brand names Hana and Lovima.

How frequently must I take the desogestrel pill?


If you are using desogestrel for birth control, you must take one tablet daily at approximately the same time. Before taking the pill, be sure to read the patient information leaflet carefully.

It must be taken within 12 hours of the same time each day to be effective. For instance, if you take a pill at 8 a.m., you should aim to take your next pill by 8 p.m. the following day.

When one pack of pills is finished, you should begin the next pack the following day.

How long must I take desogestrel before I become protected from pregnancy?


Generally, after beginning the desogestrel pill, it is necessary to take it for two days before pregnancy protection is achieved. If you begin taking the pill between days 1 and 5 of your menstrual cycle, you will receive immediate protection.

What happens if I forget to take a desogestrel tablet?


If you forget to take your desogestrel pill within 12 hours, you should take it as soon as you remember. You should then take your next pill as prescribed, even if this requires you to take two pills per day.

If you forget to take your desogestrel pill and the 12-hour window has passed, you will not be protected against pregnancy. In this instance, the following actions should be taken:

Take one pill as soon as you remember (do not take more, even if you’ve missed multiple).
Continue taking your medications at the regular intervals.
Use additional contraception like condoms for two days.
Does desogestrel stop your periods?
Hormonal contraception has different effects on every woman. Some women find that the progestogen-only pill lightens or even eliminates their periods. Others experience more frequent periods or spotting between periods.

It is believed that desogestrel is more likely than other types of the mini pill to cause amenorrhea (the cessation of menstruation), but this effect will be temporary. Once you discontinue use, your menstrual cycle should return to normal.

What side effects does desogestrel have?
As with any medication, the desogestrel pill is associated with the following side effects:

Mood swings
Decreased sexual desire
Headaches
Nausea\sAcne
Breast ache
Irregular or absent menstruation
Excessive weight gain
Not all women will experience these side effects, and those who do should begin to feel better within the first few months.

If you are concerned about how your pill is affecting you, consult your doctor or visit a contraception clinic, as there may be a contraceptive method that is more suitable for you.
