About Cerazette

Active ingredient

The active ingredient in Cerazette is desogestrel.

Who can take Cerazette?

Most women who want to prevent pregnancy can take Cerazette. You can’t take Cerazette if you’re pregnant. However, you can take Cerazette if you’re breastfeeding, unlike the combined contraceptive pills that contain oestrogen – these can’t be given to mothers breastfeeding very young babies.

In addition, women who smoke can take Cerazette as it is oestrogen-free. Oestrogen in combination with smoking significantly increases cardiovascular risks and the risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE), i.e. blood clots and deep vein thrombosis, particularly in women over 35.

Cerazette side effects

As Cerazette does not contain oestrogen, users are not at risk of some of the side effects associated with taking a combined contraceptive pill.

However, many women may experience irregular bleeding while on Cerazette. Other common side effects can include acne, loss of libido, nausea, headaches, and breast pain.

I had tried multiple times to get contraception from my doctors and sexual health clinic but couldn’t get through. I recently found out about this cute from a friend and it’s honestly life changing. No need to worry anymore.
