Cerelle is an oral contraceptive, also referred to as the 'mini pill', or the 'progestogen-only pill' (POP). It comes in the form of a 1-per-day 75mcg tablet and is taken for 28 days. Unlike combined contraceptives that contain two active ingredients, this pill contains only one active ingredient, artificial progestogen (i.e. desogestrel), which is similar to the natural progestogens produced by the body. When used correctly, Cerelle pills have been proven to be up to 99% effective in preventing pregnancy.
Cerelle progestogen-only pill contains the female sex hormone; desogestrel, which works by preventing ovulation (the release of an egg from the ovary). It contains the same ingredient, in the same dosage, as the well-known mini pill; Cerazette.
This mini pill works by convincing the body that the process of ovulation has already occurred. This prevents the ovaries from releasing an egg. The cervical fluid at the neck of the womb is also thickened significantly, reducing the chances of sperm entering the womb via the vagina. This will make the fertilisation of an egg far more unlikely if it occurs. Also, the quality of the womb lining is changed, preventing fertilised eggs from being implanted on the wall of the womb.
There are a number of benefits that can be experienced when taking Cerelle pills.
You can buy Cerelle online if you are 18 years or older. If for any reason you are not able to take the artificial progestogen in the form of desogestrel, then this pill would not be prescribed to you. If you are pregnant or have thrombosis, a history of breast cancer, jaundice or unexplained bleeding, then this pill is not suitable for you. For more information regarding the precautions associated with Cerelle pills, please refer to the precautions for Cerelle below.
The Cerelle mini pill, like others, should be taken continuously for the full 28 days of your cycle. This means that you will not have a seven-day break between packs, unlike most combined contraceptives.
*If you have missed contraceptive pills in the first one to seven days of the pill pack and have had sex without barrier contraception, you could be pregnant. If you have calculated this between one to five days after the unprotected sex, you could use emergency contraception such as the IUD or morning-after pill. If not, continue your contraception until the seven-day break. If you don't have any bleeding, it is advised to take a pregnancy test and/or consult your doctor.
Like all prescription treatments, Cerelle pill may cause some mild side effects. However, most of these side effects occur in fewer than one out of ten women. The most common side effects include headaches, nausea, depressed mood, weight gain, a decreased sex drive, acne, breast pain, possible increase in body weight or irregular periods.
If any of these potential side effects happen to occur and persist, it is advised that you contact your doctor or local GP, in order to discuss your condition.
