FAQ

What is Cerazette?

Cerazette is a type of oral contraceptive pill used to prevent pregnancy. It is known as a ‘progestogen only pill’ as it does not contain oestrogen and is therefore suitable for those who require an oral contraceptive but are unable to take oestrogen. Cerazette works by making it difficult for sperm to enter the womb and is highly effective as a contraceptive.

Do I need to use a condom with Cerazette?

Although you will not need to use a condom to prevent pregnancy while using Cerazette, it is still advisable to use one to prevent sexually transmitted infections. The contraceptive pill does not protect you from infections such as Chlamydia or gonorrhoea.

How do I take Cerazette?

Take one Cerazette tablet daily at around the same time every day. Once one strip of tablets is completed, you should immediately move onto the next without a break.

I am experiencing bleeding when taking Cerazette, what do I do?

It is possible that you experience irregular vaginal bleeding when taking Cerazette. This does not mean that it is not working, and you should continue to take your pills as normal. You may need to use a tampon or sanitary bad. If the bleeding is heavy and persistent however, please notify your GP.
  • How do you take Cezarette and how long after taking it are you protected?

    If you are starting your first pack of Cerazette:

    • If you are not using hormonal contraception at present (or in the past month)

    Wait for your period to begin. On the first day of your period take the first Cerazette tablet.

    Additional contraceptive precautions are not necessary If you take on the first day of your period, you are protected straight away. If you take your first tablet on days 2-5 of your period use an additional barrier method of contraception for the first 7 days of tablet-taking as you will not have protection for 7 days.

    • When you change from a combined pill (COC), vaginal ring, or transdermal patch

    If you don’t have a tablet-, ring- or patch-free break

    • Start taking Cerazette on the day after you take the last tablet from the present Pill pack, or on the day of removal of your vaginal ring or patch (this means no tablet-, ring- or patch-free break).

    • If your present Pill pack also contains inactive (placebo) tablets you can start Cerazette on the day after taking the last active tablet (if you are not sure which this is, ask your doctor or pharmacist).

    • If you follow these instructions, additional contraceptive precautions are not necessary.

    If you have a tablet-, ring- or patch-free break

    • You can also start on the day following the tablet-, ring- or patch-free break, or when you have taken all the inactive (placebo) tablets, of your present contraceptive.

    • If you follow these instructions, make sure you use an additional barrier method of contraception for the first 7 days of tablet-taking.

    • When changing from another progestogen-only pill:

    Switch on any day from another mini-pill. Additional contraceptive precautions are not necessary.

    • When changing from an injection or implant or a hormonal IUS:

    Start using Cerazette when your next injection is due or on the day that your implant or your IUS is removed. Additional contraceptive precautions are not necessary.

    • After you have a baby:

    You can start Cerazette between 21 to 28 days after the birth of your baby.

    If you start later, make sure that you use an additional barrier method of contraception until you have completed the first 7 days of tablet-taking. However, if you have already had sex, check that you are not pregnant before starting Cerazette. Information for breast-feeding women can be found in section 2 'Before you take Cerazette' in the paragraph 'Pregnancy and breast-feeding'.
