What Is Cerelle?
Cerelle is a progesterone-only (POP) based contraceptive taken orally to prevent pregnancy. This pill is unique as it allows a 12 hour missed duration. It contains the synthetic hormone desogestrel, which stops ovulation and makes it hard for the sperm to fertilize the egg.
This contraceptive pill works primarily by thickening the cervical mucus, making it more difficult for sperm to reach and fertilize an egg. It also alters the lining of the uterus to reduce the likelihood of a fertilized egg implanting.
Cerelle, like other progestogen-only contraceptive pills, is often referred to as a "mini-pill" because it does not contain estrogen, which is present in combined oral contraceptives (COCs). It is typically taken daily, and it is important to follow the instructions provided by a healthcare professional or on the medication packaging for it to be effective.
As with any medication, it's essential to consult with a healthcare provider to determine if Cerelle is a suitable option for you, as they can provide personalized guidance and address any potential side effects or risks associated with its use.
Cerelle pill is an excellent option for breastfeeding mothers and those allergic to oestrogen. The pack contains 24 tablets and must be prescribed by a women's health physician before purchase.
