What is Cerazette?

Cerazette is an oral contraceptive pill used to prevent pregnancy. It contains the active ingredient desogestrel 75 micrograms. This is a synthetic version of the natural progestogen sex hormones produced in the body. Cerazette and Noriday are progestogen-only pills (or mini-pills).

How does it work?

A Cerazette pill contain desogestrel 75 micrograms. Desogestrel is a synthetic progestogen, similar to the natural progestogen hormones produced by the body.

Desogestrel works mainly by stopping your ovaries from releasing an egg each month (ovulation). It also increases the thickness of the natural mucus at the neck of the womb, making it more difficult for sperm to cross from the vagina into the womb, as well as thinning the womb lining (endometrium), making it more difficult for any successfully fertilised eggs to implant there.

Cerazette mini pill is the same as other mini-pills that contain desogestrel 75 micrograms; these include Cerelle, Zelleta and Feanolla.

What happens if I miss taking Cerazette?

If you have forgotten to take the pill at your usual time, you should take it as soon as you remember. This may mean taking two pills together. 

If it was less than 12 hours since the missed dose, you will still be protected against pregnancy, and no additional contraceptive measures are required.

If the missed dose was more than 12 hours ago, you will not be protected against pregnancy for 48 hours after making up the doses. If you have sex in this time, you should use a barrier method of contraception, like a condom.

Unlike the combined contraceptive pill, protection is gained more quickly from Cerazette. However, there is less margin for error in forgetting to take your pill and still be protected.

  • Can cerazette help you lose weight?

    Cerazette is a hormonal contraceptive which may affect your appetite as a side effect. Everyone is affected differently. For some people it causes an increased appetite and resulting weight gain and for some it causes appetite reduction and weight loss. It is common, however to gain weight while taking the contraceptive pill.

  • 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.

  • Are Cerazette and Cerelle the same thing?

    Yes, they are different brands of the same drug. They both contain the active ingredient Desogestrel which is a female contraceptive hormone.

  • 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 does Cerazette work?

    Cerazette works by preventing the sperm from reaching the eggs by creating a barrier at the top of the cervix. It also works to prevent eggs ripening, which most progestogen only contraceptive pills do not do. This makes Cerazette a highly effective contraceptive pill.

  • How long after taking Cerazette am I protected?

    If you start Cerazette on days 1-2 of your period, then you will be protected straight away. If you start to take it after that, then you will need to use barrier protection for 7 days until you are protected by Cerazette.

  • What to do if you miss a dose of your contraceptive pill?
