What is Cilique?
Cilique is a contraceptive pill that has two sex hormones, namely estrogen, and progesterone. The synthetic hormones are the same ingredients found in the contraceptive pill Cilest. As a result, they have the same effects on your body. Cilest is no longer available on the market, so Cilique is a good alternative if you used Cilest as a contraceptive before. You can order the Cilique pill via a follow-up prescription online at Apomeds!
Cilique uses and available doses
Cilique can prevent you from getting pregnant, by stopping the process of ovulation. Besides, it has other benefits, as well. For example, the micro-pill makes your periods lighter, regular and reduces the menstrual pain. Moreover, it can also significantly reduce premenstrual symptoms. Please note that Cilique does not protect you against sexually transmitted diseases. Only condoms can help reduce those risks.
How does Cilique work?
The hormones in the micro-pill prevent your egg from being released by your ovaries (ovulation). Besides, they also thicken the cervix fluid. To explain, the cervix is the entrance to the womb. By thickening this fluid it is hard for the sperm to enter the womb. The Pearl index of Cilique is 99%, meaning if taken correctly, it provides you 99% protection from getting pregnant.
How to take Cilique?
Take one pill, once a day, by mouth. Do not chew the pill but take water if you need to. Cilique comes in a blister of 21 pills and each pill is marked by the day of the week. It is important to try to take the pills at the same time of the day, every day.
After 21 days, you will finish all the pills in the strip. The next step is to have a seven-day break. During this pill-free break, you will have a withdrawal bleed like your usual monthly period. You are still protected from pregnancy at this time. After that, when the break is over, you need to get a refill and start a new packet. If you take your pill correctly you will see that you start each new strip with the same day of the week.
As mentioned above it's important to take the pill always at the same time, for example in the morning before brushing your teeth, or in the evening, etc. You can also set an alarm to remember easier when to take the pill.
What happens when I miss a pill?
If you miss a pill, don’t panic. Take your missed pill as soon as you remember. However, if you miss several pills, read the leaflet carefully to see what you should do next. Missing one pill or starting a new strip late makes the contraceptive pill less effective! You should consider taking an extra form of protection and use a condom.
