Cerazette is a progestin-only oral contraceptive pill, commonly known as the mini-pill. Its active ingredient is desogestrel, which is a synthetic form of the hormone progestogen. Unlike combination oral contraceptive pills that contain both estrogen and progestin, Cerazette only contains progestin, making it a suitable option for women who cannot tolerate estrogen or have specific medical conditions that contraindicate estrogen use.

Cerazette works primarily by thickening the cervical mucus, making it more difficult for sperm to enter the uterus and reach an egg. It also changes the lining of the uterus, making it less receptive to the implantation of a fertilized egg. Additionally, Cerazette can suppress ovulation in some women, but this is not always consistent in all users.

To be effective, Cerazette needs to be taken at the same time every day, without any breaks between packs. Missing a pill or taking it at irregular intervals can reduce its effectiveness in preventing pregnancy. As with any contraceptive method, it's essential to use it consistently and as prescribed by a healthcare provider.

Please note that medication information can change over time, and it's always best to consult with one of our pharmacists before hand or check more recent sources for the most up-to-date and accurate information.

Cerazette Frequently Asked Questions

What is Cerazette used for?
Cerazette is a progestin-only oral contraceptive pill used to prevent pregnancy. It contains the active ingredient desogestrel, a synthetic form of the hormone progestogen.

How does Cerazette work?
Cerazette primarily works by thickening the cervical mucus, which makes it harder for sperm to reach the egg. It may also change the uterine lining, making it less receptive to the implantation of a fertilized egg. Additionally, Cerazette may suppress ovulation in some women, but this is not consistent in all users.

How effective is Cerazette in preventing pregnancy?
When used correctly and consistently, Cerazette is highly effective in preventing pregnancy. However, its effectiveness can be reduced if pills are missed or not taken at the same time each day. It is essential to follow the prescribed dosing schedule and use backup contraception if a pill is missed.

Can Cerazette protect against sexually transmitted infections (STIs)?
No, Cerazette does not protect against sexually transmitted infections (STIs). It only provides contraception against pregnancy. To protect against STIs, it is necessary to use barrier methods, such as condoms.

Can Cerazette cause weight gain?
Weight gain is not a common side effect of Cerazette. Some women may experience changes in appetite or fluid retention, leading to a perception of weight gain, but this is not the same as gaining body fat.

Can Cerazette cause irregular periods?
Yes, irregular menstrual bleeding is a common side effect of Cerazette. Some women may experience lighter or heavier periods, irregular spotting, or even have their periods stop altogether. It is generally not a cause for concern unless it persists or becomes bothersome.

Is Cerazette suitable for breastfeeding mothers?
Cerazette is generally considered safe for use by breastfeeding mothers since it only contains progestin. However, it is essential to consult with a healthcare provider to determine the most suitable contraceptive option while breastfeeding.

What should I do if I miss a Cerazette pill?
If you miss a Cerazette pill, take it as soon as you remember and then take the next pill at the usual time, even if it means taking two pills on the same day. If you are more than 12 hours late in taking a pill, use backup contraception (e.g., condoms) for the next two days and continue taking Cerazette as usual.
