What is Cerazette?

Cerazette (desogestrel) is an oral contraceptive tablet, which is also known as the 'mini-pill'. Cerazette provides immediate protection against pregnancy, when taken on the first day of your period. It's different from the standard combined contraceptive pill because it has only one active ingredient, artificial progestogen.

Like most low dose oral contraceptives, Cerazette is an effective method of protection and has proved to be more than 99% effective in clinical trials. It's also proven to be helpful in reducing the occurrence of uncomfortable and painful periods. Taking this oral contraceptive provides you with flexibility, because unlike most other progestogen only contraceptives, you can take your pill up to 12 hours later than your regular time.

How does Cerazette work?

Cerazette's primary function is to prevent ovulation. It does this by convincing the body that ovulation has already occurred, so that the ovaries don't release an egg to be fertilised. This is made possible through the use of an artificial version of hormone progestogen, a hormone that is produced by the body. It also prevents the womb lining from thickening, and increases the thickness of cervical fluid, which makes it impossible for sperm to enter the womb, preventing pregnancy from occurring.

What are the benefits of taking Cerazette?

Cerazette comes with a number of benefits, when taken successfully. These include:

  • This mini birth control pill provides you with instant contraception if you take it on the first day of your period
  • As it only contains progestogen, it's suitable to use if you can't, or prefer not to, use an oral contraceptive with oestrogen
  • The absence of oestrogen in this mini birth control pill makes it safer to use when you are breastfeeding
  • Women using Cerazette for contraceptive purposes may also notice that their periods are less painful than usual
  • Cerazette can be taken by women who are breastfeeding, and by those who are over 35 and smoking, which is a restriction of dual oral contraceptives
  • In clinical trials 94 % of women suffering from dysmenorrhea (severely painful periods) experienced a significant improvement

Who can take Cerazette?

You can buy Cerazette online if you are 18 years or older. We strictly advise against using this contraceptive if you are allergic to the artificial progestogen (desogestrel) present in Cerazette. It's also not recommended to use if you are pregnant, have thrombosis, breast cancer, liver cancer, unexplained vaginal bleeding or have had jaundice. Please observe the precautions for Cerazette in the patient information leaflet provided.[1]

How to use Cerazette?

Currently, the only available dosage we have to offer for Cerazette is a 75mcg mini pill. Like other mini birth control pills, these tablets should be taken orally, and continuously, for the full 28 days of your cycle. This makes it less likely that you will forget to take it, as you do not have a seven-day pill free period, unlike many combinations of oral contraceptives. It is advisable to take it at the same time every day; however, it can be taken up to 12 hours late, if you forget to take it at your usual time.

What if I miss a pill?

Missing a Cerazette pill can happen and as it is a mini pill, it depends on the timeframe that you have missed a pill. This form of POP pill is a 12-hour mini pill in comparison to the 3-hour mini pill, meaning there is a 12-hour window to forget.

Less than 12 hours late - take the late pill as soon as you remember, carry on the pack as normal. You will still be protected and do not need additional protection, just like the combined contraceptive.

More than 12 hours late - take the late pill as soon as you remember, even if you can take two in one day and finish the pack as normal. The catch here is that you won't be protected to the same efficiency so many women use additional barrier contraception like condoms until the pack is finished to make sure.

This does include whether you experience diarrhoea or vomit when taking the mini pill, and further information on that can be found on our mini pill information page.

If you have had sex and have missed a pill by more than 12 hours, don't panic; you can get emergency contraception in tablet form.

What are the side effects of Cerazette?

Cerazette is a prescription contraceptive treatment, which means that there is a slight risk of developing side effects. In clinical trials, Cerazette was very well tolerated by participants, and some minor side effects such as:

  • Mood changes, decreased sexual drive (libido), headaches, nausea, acne, breast pain, irregular periods and weight gain

Studies show these occur in less than one out of ten women. These side effects should subside as the body becomes accustomed to the mini pill, but if they do happen to occur and persist, you should contact a doctor to discuss your condition.

What are the precautions for using Cerazette?

There are a number of precautions that should be considered before using Cerazette. These are:

  • Cerazette shouldn't be used if you are allergic to any of the ingredients found within the pill
  • The pill shouldn't be taken if you have ever had breast cancer, liver cancer, or thrombosis
  • This medication shouldn't be taken if you are currently dealing with diabetes, epilepsy, tuberculosis, or high blood pressure
  • If a sustained hypertension develops when using Cerazette, or if your blood pressure significantly increases, the discontinuation of Cerazette should be considered
  • Cerazette shouldn't be taken with hormonal contraceptives, as it can lead to breakthrough bleeding or contraceptive failure
