Cilest is a combined contraceptive pill that can provide almost 100% protection from pregnancy. Containing the active ingredients ethinylestradiol and norgestimate, this effective contraceptive pill mimics the naturally occurring female hormones oestrogen and progesterone, which makes the body think ovulation has happened, preventing the release of an egg. As a combined pill, it is taken everyday for 21 days with a 7 day break wherein you are still protected.

You can order Cilest online here in either 3 or 6 month blister pill packs after taking our free online consultation which only takes a few minutes.

What is Cilest?

Cilest is a highly effective oral contraceptive pill that is over 99% effective at preventing pregnancy. As with other combined contraceptive pills, 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.[1]

How do Cilest pills work?

Cilest pills contain two active ingredients,, norgestimate and ethinylestradiol, these are two synthetic versions of the naturally occurring oestrogen and progesterone hormones in the body. These work together to 'convince' the body that ovulation has already taken place, due to this, no egg is released for fertilisation. Other modes of action this combined contraceptive uses to ensure a high level of protection includes:

  • Changes in the cervical mucous, which makes it difficult for sperm to enter the womb.
  • Preventing the lining in the womb from thickening so that an egg cannot attach itself and grow.

Cervix UTERUS VAGINA Oestrogen and Progesterone prevent eggs from being released from the ovaries. Progesterone causes thinning of the endometrium, which prevents implantation of a fertilized egg. Progesterone thickens the mucus in the cervix, preventing sperm from reaching eggs.

What are the benefits of Cilest?

Cilest allows you to enjoy sex with your partner without either of you having to worry about taking additional measures to ensure you are protected against pregnancy (although it is recommended to also use a barrier contraceptive to prevent the risk of sexually transmitted infections). Apart from its primary benefit, it provides other additional benefit such as:

  • It provides you with instant protection and control when taken on the first day of your period
  • Taking this oral contraceptive can also help to regulate your periods

How to take the Cilest contraceptive pill?

For immediate protection, you should start taking your first Cilest pill on the very first day of your period. However, you will need to use an additional barrier contraceptive such as condoms for the following seven days for the pill to be 99% effective. You can find out more details about using this combined contraceptive in the attached patient information leaflet or by consulting with your doctor.

  • Cilest pills are taken for 21 continual days.
  • They should be taken at around the same time every day to be fully effective.
  • This is followed by a seven-day rest period.
  • You may experience withdrawal 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.

[2]What should I do about a missed Cilest pill?

If you happen to forget to take your pill, or more than one pill, in one blister pack at the usual time, follow the below protocol:

  • If you have missed one Cilest pill, then take it as soon as possible unless it is close to the time of your next pill. If it is nearer to the next pill than the previous time, miss it out completely and continue with the blister pack as normal. Missing one pill in one blister pack will not affect the effectiveness and you will not need further barrier protection.
  • If you miss two or more pills in one blister pack, then you will not be protected at maximum effect. However, take the last missed pill as soon as you remember unless it is close to the time of your next pill. Do not take two pills in close proximity - this will not combat the mistake - and skip the missed pills. It is advised to use condoms or refrain from sex for the next seven-nine days.

For more information about what to do if you've missed your dosage for a significant period, it's always best to speak to your doctor or pharmacist.

viagra If not taken on the first day of your period, use condoms for the following seven days. Take each pill around the same time every day for maximum effectiveness of over 99%. Many women set an alarm to remember their next dose. Each Cilest pill can be easily swallowed with or without drink and food. Store away from direct sunlight and under the temperature of 25*C. Double check the expiry date and patient leaflet regarding use and missed pill if unsure.

Cilest 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
  • Stomach cramps
  • Changes in menstrual cycle

Less common side effects include:

  • Breast growth or tenderness
  • Fluid retention
  • Mood swings
  • Constipation
  • Migraines
  • Thrush

Some women also report weight gain when taking Cilest although this is also unlikely. If you do find that you experience side effects, you might be advised to use a different contraceptive pill, with a different dosage of norgestimate and ethinylestradiol. You should mention any side effects you have experienced previously while taking the pill during your consultation, to help our doctor recommend a daily contraceptive that may be more suitable for you.

What are the precautions/interactions for Cilest?

Cilest can be ordered online by women above the age of 18, who are seeking a daily contraception solution, 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.
