CERAZETTE (DESOGESTREL)

Cerazette is a Progestogen-only Pill

Some women may choose to take a progestogen-only pill (POP) if they are still breast feeding or they had/have an estrogen driven cancer such as ER-positive breast cancer but require an efficient birth control to stop an unplanned pregnancy. Cerazette or generic Desogestrel may be referred to as a minipill as it only contains 1 hormone and is considered to be a highly effective oral contraceptive that is taken once daily on a continual basis and comes in 3 strips of 28 pills per strip. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

How Cerazette Works

As you take Cerazette, your cervical mucus will become thicker and make it more difficult for sperm to enter your womb and can also help to prevent ovulation so there is no egg to be fertilized. Birth control pills do not give you a 100% guarantee of stopping ovulation. Whether it contains only progestogen or has estrogen too, there is always a small percentage left to chance that an egg will mature and become fertilized. If you are not willing to take that risk, talk to your doctor about other ways to increase your chance of stopping a pregnancy from taking place until you are ready. Taking Cerazette may also help clear up dermatitis as an added bonus and there is a lower risk of side effects with the minipill.

What Your Doctor Needs to Know Before You Start Taking Cerazette

You should take a pregnancy test before starting Cerazette if you were not on any other type of birth control previously. Tell your doctor about other medical conditions or allergies you have and provide a list of any OTC and Rx medications you currently take or use, including herbal remedies and vitamin or dietary supplements. This will help your doctor determine if Cerazette is the right oral birth control for your situation.

Important Information About Cerazette

Cerazette must be taken as instructed to reduce your risk of an unplanned pregnancy. If you fail to take it within 3 hours of when you last took one, you should use a condom or another back-up method of contraception if you have intercourse that day or abstain from sex for 48 hours. Taking Cerazette will not protect you or your partner from infecting or becoming infected by a sexually transmitted disease.

Keep Cerazette, and all other meds, out of children’s reach. Set yourself a reminder to refill Cerazette when you start the last strip of 28 pills. When you are ready to start planning for a family, simply stop taking Cerazette and your body will resume ovulating.
