Description of Cerazette

. Cerazette is a drug that works by inhibiting ovulation and increasing the viscosity of the cervical mucus. Since it is a progestogen-only pill, it is suitable to be used by breastfeeding mothers and women who cannot or do not want to use estrogen.

The medicine is available in the form of oral tablets. Each tablet of Cerazette contains 75mg of Desogestrel, a progestogen. It is a contraceptive pill belonging to the category of hormonal contraceptives.

Indications & Dosage of Cerazette

Cerazette is a contraceptive pill used for preventing pregnancy. It is not meant to be used by men and children. It is given only to women of a child-bearing age.

In order to start using Cerazette, you will have to take the first tablet on the first day of your menstrual cycle. You can also start it on the 2nd to 5th day, but your doctor will advise you to use a barrier form of contraception for the first week. Once you have started taking Cerazette, you will have to take it every day at almost the same time each day.

Side Effects & Interactions of Cerazette

Cerazette users commonly report the following mild side effects:

  • Breast pain
  • Mood changes
  • Acne
  • Increased weight
  • Nausea
  • Increased or decreased sex drive
  • Headache
  • Irregular menstruation or spotting in between periods

These side effects are experienced only during the first 1-2 months of starting Cerazette. They subside on their own as your body adjusts to the medicine. However, you should inform your doctor if any of these persist or worsen.

Seek medical attention immediately if you develop a vaginal infection, alopecia, abnormal or excessive fatigue or contact lens intolerance during Cerazette treatment. Urticaria, rash, or erythema nodosum may also surface in some women. You should stop using the drug and seek medical help immediately if you develop any of these symptoms.

Breast discharge can also surface as a side effect. Ectopic pregnancy can also take place if you plan a pregnancy after using Cerazette. In rare cases, the medicine can also lead to undesirable effects such as arterial thromboembolic disorders, venous thromboembolic disorders, chloasma, or hormone dependent tumors such as breast cancer or live tumors.

Some women having allergy to the medicine may develop symptoms such as hives on body, difficulty breathing, severe dizziness or facial swelling. Discontinue using the medicine at once if you develop any of these symptoms.

Your doctor will not advise you to buy Cerazette if you are already using any of the following medicines:

  • Barbiturates (Phenobarbital)
  • Hydantoins (phenytoin)
  • Rifamycins (rifampicin)
  • HIV medicines (ritonavir)
  • St. John’s wort

Warnings & Precautions of Cerazette

You should not buy Cerazette if you are pregnant or suspect pregnancy or if you have undiagnosed vaginal bleeding. Also inform your doctor if you have a history of severe hepatic disease, active sex-steroid sensitive malignancy, venous thromboembolic disorder, or an allergy to any of the ingredients of the medicine.

Contraceptive pills, including Cerazette, do not provide protection against sexually transmitted diseases such as HIV or gonorrhea. Therefore, you are advised to use a barrier form of contraception such as condoms or diaphragms, especially if you have more than one sexual partner.
