What is Cilest?
Cilest is a hormonal combination in low dosages. The contraceptive contains the luteal hormone or progesterone called norgestimate, and the estrogen called ethinylestradiol.
This contraceptive pill is a so-called micro-pill, as its estrogen content, with the active ingredient ethinylestradiol, is below 50 micrograms. This combination pill provides a low dosage of hormones for the female body, improves menstruation disorders and is a safe contraceptive method. The Cilest reviews are quite positive, and women worldwide take it.
The effect and dosage of Cilest
The active ingredient ethinyl estradiol, inhibits ovulation, and suppresses the hormone which induces ovulation. More specifically, this substance prevents the pituitary gland from forming the hormone gonadotropin, which normally triggers ovulation. Ethinyl estradiol deceives the female body by simulating the condition of a pregnancy, in which the gonadotropin hormone is naturally inhibited.
Norgestimate changes the texture of the uterine lining in such a way that a potentially fertilized egg can no longer settle there, and also affects the consistency of the mucus in the uterine canal so that the sperm can no longer enter. In addition, this substance causes the egg to pass through the fallopian tube so fast that there is no time for fertilization.
The pill is taken once a day with water – always at the same time of day.
