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 contraceptives 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.

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

Thank you for quick service. GP precriptions nightmare when working fulltime. And working out the expense over 3 months supply or more depending on your order seems cheap when providing regular birth control and keep them periods away. Perfect product for me personally.
