Medicine: Desogestrel

Desogestrel is a contraceptive pill used to prevent pregnancy, similar to the branded Cerazette this contraception is often called the mini-pill or progestogen-only pill. Pregnancy can result from sexual intercourse but there are many contraceptive methods available to prevent conception. Desogestrel 75 microgram is a progestogen-only female birth control pill which means that it only contains artificial progestogen ingredients and no oestrogen.

Desogestrel 75mcg Mini-Pill

We are often asked the question “What is Desogestrel?”

Buy Desogestrel (Generic Cerazette) 75mcg Mini-Pill | ContraceptionWhen looking for contraception consider the best Mini Pill Desogestrel Online. It’s available to buy Desogestrel uk via My Pharmacy UK.

There are two types of hormone contraceptives. The combined pill, otherwise known as “The Pill”, contains two types of female sex hormones called oestrogen and progestogen. Whilst the progestogen only pill, otherwise known as POP, doesn’t contain oestrogen.

Desogestrel is a progestogen only pill (POP). Desogestrel contains a small amount of one type of female sex hormone, the progestogen called desogestrel.

The majority of POPs work by primarily preventing the sperm cells from entering the womb but don’t always prevent the egg from ripening, which is the main way that combined pills work. In this case however, Desogestrel is different from the majority of POPs. In most cases the dose prevents the egg cell from ripening, resulting in a highly effective contraceptive.

Desogestrel Ethinyl Estradiol

Desogestrel Ethinyl Estradiol is a combination birth control pill that contains female hormones that prevents the release of any eggs from an ovary. To do this Desogestrel Ethinyl Estradiol changes the way in which your cervical mucus and uterine lining work, by making it harder for any sperm to reach the uterus and harder for any fertilized eggs to attach to the uterus.

Desogestrel Ethinyl Estradiol has many brands available, some of listed below. It also has other uses which aren’t listed within this body of text.

How does Desogestrel work?

This mini pill works to prevent pregnancy in three different ways
1) Desogestrel works mainly by stopping your ovaries from releasing an egg each month (ovulation).
2) 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,
3) thinning of the womb lining (endometrium), making it more difficult for any successfully fertilised eggs to implant there.

How to take Desogestrel?

  • Each strip of Desogestrel contains 28 tablets – 4 weeks supply
  • Take your tablet each day at about the same time. Swallow the tablet whole, with water

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