Cerazette is an oestrogen-free birth control pill. It is called a mini-pill because it contains only one hormone, in comparison to the combined preparations, which contain two female hormones. Cerazette is used as a hormonal contraceptive and was first used medically in Europe, in 1981. The active ingredient found in the pill, desogestrel, is a synthetic progestin from the 3rd generation. As well as oestrogens, progestins are part of the second important class of female sex hormones, which belong to the group of steroid hormones.
Desogestrel is a so-called pro-drug in which the gestagenic effect is caused by the active metabolite 3-keto-desogestrel. This substance causes a change in the consistency or thickening of the cervical mucus in the area of the cervix. As a result, male sperm is no longer able to enter the uterus and ovulation is also suppressed.
Take the pill by mouth, with a glass of water. Start the treatment on the first day of menstruation. Continue to take the pill every day, at the same time each day, for 28 days. You may start a new pack after taking the last pill of the previous packet. The mini-pill is very effective in low doses. Also, the hormonal preparation contains only 0.075 mg progestin-desogestrel, so you can take it even if you are breastfeeding. It offers effective protection against becoming pregnant again.
Due to the low dosage, the side effects are weaker compared to those of a combined pill. Side effects may not occur, but you might experience some symptoms since every person reacts differently to certain medications.
Common side effects:
Occasional side effects:
If any of the above or other side effects occur, tell your doctor immediately. Read the Patient Information Leaflet for detailed information on side effects, contraindications and drug interactions.
The Cerazette birth control pill should not be taken if you have hypersensitivity to the active substance, desogestrel, or any other constituent, such as lactose. Also, in case you have thrombosis in the lungs or legs, it is not safe to take birth control pills. This also applies to current or previous liver disease. Finally, all hormone-related cancers and tumors are also contraindicated.
In short, the following diseases must be clarified with the doctor before taking the birth control pill:
The effectiveness of the Cerazette pill is decreased or reversed by the following medications:
We are aware that in order to prescribe this medication, it is necessary to check whether the person is suitable to take it. Apomeds connects you to mail-order pharmacies and EU-qualified doctors, who check your medical questionnaire for contraindications and interactions with other medicines. You can safely and discreetly order your birth-control pill online! As stated above, please note that you can order birth control pills on our platform only via a follow-up prescription.
Besides Cerazette we also have the following progestogen birth control pills in stock:
There are websites where you can order birth control pills prescription-free. However, we advise you to not order Cerazette without consulting a doctor first, as it is not suitable for all women. Do not order Cerazette unless you have a prescription from a certified doctor, who has checked if this medication is safe and suitable for you.
The Cerazette mini-pill is suitable for adult women who don’t have any serious health issues and want to prevent pregnancy. Also, you can take it even if you are breastfeeding. If you are intolerant to oestrogen, or suffer from severe symptoms such as menstrual migraine, or oestrogen-related side effects like oedema, the medicine is also suitable because it does not contain oestrogen.
If you take the pill exactly as instructed, namely each day, at the same time of the day – it will be 99% effective. Consequently, the chances are extremely low to get pregnant if you take the pill correctly.
If you forget to take one birth control pill, take the dose as soon as you remember. In case you manage to take the pill less than 24 hours after you were supposed to and it's not a pill at the beginning of a new pack, there is no need to use another contraceptive method. However, if you do not meet these criteria, you need to use a back-up method. Ask your prescribing physician for more information.
Although it is not advised, you can change the time when you take the birth control pill. The most effective way is to change the schedule when you start a new pack. Also, make sure the new time isn't more than 24 hours after the old one.
You can conveniently select the desired treatment on our website and complete an online questionnaire, which will be reviewed by our EU-licensed doctors, to assess if you are suitable to use the mini-pill. The follow-up prescription will then be issued and delivered to your home, with the oral contraceptive in a discreet package. For more information on how Apomeds works, please click here.
