Women in today’s society prefer using daily contraception in order to prevent them from getting pregnant. Hormonal contraceptive methods have proven to be the most effective form of daily contraception amongst women. The three hormonal contraceptive methods are oral contraceptive pills, contraceptive patches and contraceptive rings. Of these three methods, oral contraceptive pills have been the most popular amongst women. However, researches indicate that the other two methods are also gaining popularity at a fast pace. Millions of women have benefitted from this method of contraception and were able to prevent pregnancy. The oral contraceptive pills work with the help of synthetic female hormones present in them.

The synthetic female hormones present in a contraceptive pill become the deciding factor for bifurcation of the pills. A contraceptive pill can be either of the two, combination pill or mini-pill. A combination pill is the one which consists of two synthetic female hormones, oestrogen and progestogen. It is at times referred to as ‘the pill’. This pill, with the help of these two synthetic female hormones, works in three ways to protect women from getting pregnant. A mini-pill, on the other hand, is the one which consists of a single synthetic female hormone, progestogen. It is often referred to as the ‘progestogen only pill’.

Cerazette is the most popular mini-pill used by women. This pill proves to be suitable for women who are allergic to oestrogen, are breastfeeding or are above 35 years of age and smoking. It is also beneficial for women who are experiencing painful periods. This pill has been proven to be almost 99% effective in preventing pregnancy in women. This pill consists of desogestrel, synthetic progestogen, as its active ingredient. Cerazette is one of the two pills that functions similarly to that of a combination pill. It works in three different ways in order to prevent you from getting pregnant.

Just like a contraceptive pill, the Cerazette pill also prevents ovulation by tricking your body into believing that ovulation has already occurred. This prevents your body from producing an egg. Secondly, it thickens the cervical mucus in your womb, which prevents a sperm from entering and fertilising an egg. And lastly, the Cerazette pill alters the womb lining so that an egg, if produced and fertilised, is unable to attach itself to the walls of your womb and grow. Women are required to take this pill at least once on a daily basis at exactly the same time as the previous day.

This contraception, unlike other mini-pills, can also be taken 12 hours later than your usual time. You are required to take this pill for all 28 days of your menstrual cycle. You are not to take any break in between and continue taking the pill. One of the major disadvantages of the Cerazette pill is that you can have irregular periods. You can buy this pill on prescription after consultation with a doctor or online, through a registered online clinic. Cerazette can be taken by women who are 18 years of age or above.
