Frequently asked questions

Is Cilique good for acne? – Does Cilique help with acne?

Yes, you can use the Cilique pill to treat acne. The hormones used in Cilique pills may reduce the amount of oil produced by your skin cells, but it depends on your body. Some other pills have specifically been approved for acne treatment – if you suffer from severe acne, they might be a better choice for you. You can read more about using the pill to treat acne on our taking the contraceptive pill for acne page.

Can Cilique cause mood swings?

Yes, in some people Cilique causes mood swings. Others don’t notice any changes in their mood or even find they have a more stable mood as a result of their pill. As with every medication, each body (and mind) reacts differently to the hormones in the pill. If you experience strong mood swings, another contraceptive pill might be better suited for you.

Is Cilique a low-dose pill?

No, Cilique is not a low-dose pill. Each pill has 35 mcg Ethinylestradiol, which is a medium-range dosage of oestrogen. Millinette for example has only 20 mcg of ethinylestradiol per tablet and counts as low-range.

Does Cilique affect your libido?

Yes, Cilique may affect your libido (sex drive). In most people, side effects like this occur mainly in the first 3 months. If you find your sex drive remains too low or high for your liking, another pill might affect it less.

Can Cilique affect my weight? – Does Cilique make you gain weight?

Yes, Cilique can affect your weight temporarily. This is a possible side effect due to the change in hormone levels in your body. This is usually temporary due to water retention and can go back to normal after you stop your pill. While some women gain weight, others may lose weight or remain the same. If you notice any strong changes while taking Cilique, you can try switching to another pill. You can find more information on the pill and weight on our contraceptive pill and weight gain page.

Does Cilique stop your period?

Yes, Cilique can stop your period completely if you take it without a break between blister strips. Still, spotting in between periods is a possible side effect and Cilique doesn’t stop periods for everyone.

Is Lizinna the same as Cilique?

Lizinna and Cilique are very similar but not the same. They contain the same type of hormones in the same dosage, but have otherwise different ingredients and are produced by different manufacturers. Still, they should have very similar effects.

Is Cilique a combined pill?

Yes, Cilique is a combined pill. It contains both a progestogen (norgestimate) and an oestrogen (ethinylestradiol). This combination causes less progestogen-only side effects, but might not be suitable for women who react very sensitively to oestrogen.
