Not sure which Contraception treatment you need?

Cilest is a highly effective oral contraceptive (the pill) that can provide you with almost 100% protection against pregnancy. As with other combined contraceptives, Cilest provides you with immediate protection when taken on the first day of your period, which makes it one of the most convenient methods of contraception available. It may also help alleviate pain and discomfort for women who often have heavy and painful periods.

Cilest pills can be purchased conveniently online after you complete a short online consultation. Our consultation form is easy to complete and will include medical information which will help our doctors to ensure that this is the best treatment for you.

What are the benefits of Cilest?

Cilest allows you to enjoy sex with your partner without you having to worry about any additional measures to ensure you are protected against pregnancy. It provides you with instant protection and control when you take Cilest on the first day of your period. Taking this oral contraceptive can also help to regulate your periods and reduce the associated pain and discomfort.

How does it work?

Cilest pills have two active ingredients, norgestimate and ethinylestradol, which work to convince the body that ovulation has already happened. Because of this, no egg is released for fertilisation. This medication also causes changes in the cervical mucous, which makes it difficult for sperm to enter the womb. Cilest pills also prevent the lining in the womb from thickening so that an egg can attach itself and grow.

Who can take this medication?

Cilest can be ordered online by women above the age of 18 who are seeking daily contraception and who aren't already pregnant or breastfeeding. You would not be advised to take this birth control pill if you have had problems with your circulation, heart, liver or problems with hypertension. Make sure to mention any past or present health conditions or medications you are taking in your consultation.

How do you take it?

Cilest pills should be taken at the same time every day for 21 days of your menstrual cycle, followed by a seven day rest period. You may experience bleeding similar to that of your regular period during this time, which is perfectly natural. Even though you are not taking your contraceptive during these seven days, you will still be protected from becoming pregnant.

For immediate protection, you should start taking your first Cilest pill on the very first day of your period. If this isn't possible, you can start taking it up until the fifth day of your period. However, you'll have to use an additional barrier contraceptive for seven days, until Cilest has taken effect. You can take Cilest with or without food or water.

Are there any side effects?

As it is a prescription treatment, there is a small chance of developing certain side effects when using Cilest. Side effects usually tend to be very mild and will pass completely if you stop using the treatment. The most common effects include nausea, vomiting, headaches, breast tenderness, changes in weight, fluid retention and vaginal thrush.

If you do find that you experience side effects after taking Cilest, you might be advised to use a different contraceptive pill, with a different dosage of norgestimate and ethinylestradol. You should mention any side effects you have experienced previously while taking the pill during your consultation, to help our doctor to recommend a daily contraceptive that may be more suitable for you.

Are Cilest pills available to purchase online?

You can purchase Cilest pills online after you complete a free online consultation. This service is completely confidential and will provide our doctors with enough information to help them assess whether this treatment is safe for you to use. If your consultation is approved, you will be able to order your treatment safely and securely online with us. We will pass on the approved prescription provided by our doctor to our pharmacy and your contraceptive pill will be dispatched via overnight delivery.
