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.

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.
Without oral contraceptives With oral contraceptives Released egg Fallopian tube Ovary Endometrium
(uterus lining)
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 Cilest pills?

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.

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 will need to use an additional barrier contraceptive for seven days, until the pill has taken effect. You can find out more details about using this combined contraceptive in the attached patient information leaflet or by consulting with your doctor.


What should I do about a missed Cilest pill?

If you happen to forget to take your pill at the normal time, take is as soon as your remember However, if you find that you've missed it by 24 hours or more, it is advised to follow the following protocol:

  • If you have accidentally missed one Cilest pill, then take it as soon as you can. Sometimes this might mean taking two pills at the same time. After this you can then continue taking the rest of the pack, ensure you consult your doctor to confirm your usage.
  • If you miss two or more pills, then you will not be protected against falling pregnant. However, take the missed pill (or pills) as soon as you remember, even if it means taking two at the same time. Due to the way the treatment works, you're advised to use condoms or other forms of contraception for the next seven 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 One tablet should be taken at least 30-60 mins before intercourse, preferably on an empty stomach The tablet will only work if you're sexually aroused The tablets should only be taken when needed.

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.
