Gedarel 20 150
Gedarel 20 150 is the lowest dose of Gedarel tablets available. It contains a low amount of ethinylestradiol compared to its counterpart Gedarel 30 150.
Gedarel 20 150 is known as an “Ultra-low-dose” pill. This is part of a trend in recent years where even lower levels of hormones are in pills. Even when having a lower dose, it seems to be just as good at preventing pregnancy, as well as having a lower chance of experiencing side effects.
Gedarel 20 150 seems to work well in women who are perimenopausal. These is when a woman is experiencing periods but are also having menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes and dry throat.
Gedarel 30 150
Gedarel 30 150 is the highest dose of Gedarel available. It has a higher dose of ethinylestradiol and is typically the dose that is given to the majority of women.
My Pharmacy offers both Gedarel 20 150 and Gedarel 30 150 with the option of one (63 tablets) or two (126 tablet) packets.
“I’ve tried 4 different combined pills now (Some due to side effects and some due to being discontinued) and gedarel is by far the best. I do not suffer any of the side effects listed. The only one I would say that has affected me is the reduced sex drive but I experienced this with the other pills so could be a continuation from those. It’s hard to find a pill to suit your body and you may have to try a few to find the right one!”
Gedarel Side Effects
Like with all medicine, Gedarel Side Effects can occur but these aren’t experienced by everyone. If you experience any of these Gedarel side effects, especially if any of them are getting progressively worse, immediately stop and speak to your doctor as soon as possible.
Below is a list of Gedarel Side Effects experienced more, or less when people have taken Gedarel tablets. For a full list, please refer to the patient information leaflet.
- Irregular bleeding
- Mood altered
- Breast pain

- Harmful blood clots in areas such as
- A leg or foot
- Heart attack

The chance of getting a blood clot is higher if you have any other conditions that increase this risk. Smoking, overweight and high blood pressure can all contribute to a high risk chance of having a blood clot.
Contraceptive Pill Gedarel
Contraceptive Pill Gedarel is a combined oral contraceptive, also called the pill. It contains two types of female hormones: an oestrogen, ethinylestradiol, and a progestogen, levonorgestrel in a low dose.
Taking Contraceptive Pill Gedarel protects you against getting pregnant in three ways. These hormones:
- Stop the ovary from releasing an egg each month
- Thicken the fluid making it more difficult for the sperm to reach the egg.
- Alter the lining of the womb to make it less likely to accept a fertilised egg

Contraceptive Pill Gedarel will not protect you from sexually transmitted infections, such as chlamydia or HIV. Only condoms can protect you from STIs.
Gedarel Acne can sometimes be helped when taking Gedarel or contraceptives. Gedarel tablets contain progestogens and because of this, taking them orally may indirectly help with any acne.
Not just acne, but any androgen related skin disorders can be helped when taking Gedarel Acne, such as Hirsutism. This is when excessive body hair grows in places where hair is normally absent or minimal.
Gedarel Weight Gain
Gedarel weight gain is indeed one of the many side effects you can experience when taking Gedarel tablets. This may not be experienced by everyone who decides on taking Gedarel tablets as their pill of choice. It is however a commonly reported side effect and other options may have to be considered if this is of concern.
The reason some contraceptive pills cause gedarel weight gain is because of the ingredient called Estrogen. In high doses, Estrogen can cause weight gain due to an increased appetite and fluid retention. More recent updates to birth control have reduced the amount of hormones, so weight gain is not a likely problem many women will come across.
If you have any further questions about Gedarel weight gain and its other various side effects, please do not hesitate to speak to your doctor or pharmacist.
Gedarel Patient Information Leaflet
The gedarel patient information leaflet or PIL is a leaflet that is included with your Gedarel tablets. It is written for patients and gives information about taking or using the medication.
Any risks or side effects are listed in the Gedarel patient information leaflet along with a guide on how to use Gedarel tablets.
If you are using the online version of the Gedarel patient information leaflet it may differ from the one packaged with the medication.
Gedarel vs Rigevidon
If you’re having trouble deciding between the various contraceptive pills or are stuck between Gedarel vs Rigevidon, you should talk with your doctor and find out which would be best for you.
A difference in the Gedarel vs Rigevidon questions is that they both contain ethinylestradiol; however Gedarel contains desogestrel whilst Rigevidon contains levonorgestrel.
A study was conducted on how the different combinations of the two (Gedarel and Rigevidon) work out over a specific amount of time.
The conclusion found that DSG (Desogestrel) + EE (Ethinylestradiol) significantly reduces the severity of acne and hirsutism, without any significant change in weight.
When taking hormonal contraceptives, some women have reported depression or a mood change. Gedarel depression can be serious and may even lead to suicidal thoughts. If any mood changes are experienced when taking Gedarel tablets, you should immediately contact your doctor for further medical advice.
Gedarel depression has been reported to happen commonly, with 1 in 10 people experiencing depression or mood changes.
Gedarel Mood Swings
Gedarel mood swings are also a commonly reported side effect, affecting 1 in 10 people who take Gedarel tablets.
If you experience any Gedarel mood swings immediately contact your doctor for further medical advice.
Gedarel Mood swings can often turn into depressive/suicidal thoughts and should not be taken lightly.
Is Gedarel A Combined Pill?
We are often asked the question “Is Gedarel a combined pill?”
Yes, Gedarel tablets are a combined pill. This means that it’s made up of two female hormones, progesterone (desogestrel) and oestrogen (ethinylestradiol).
When taken correctly, it is over 99% effective at preventing pregnancy. The effectiveness changes if it’s not taken correctly with some women finding it difficult to take it at the same time every day.
If you are still unsure about “Is gedarel a combined pill?” speak to your doctor or local pharmacist for further information.
Does Gedarel Stop Periods?
Another question we are often asked is “Does Gedarel stop periods?”
If Gedarel is taken correctly and each new strip is started on the same day each week, you will always have your monthly period on the same day of the week in each month.
If you find any irregularities with your period, such as bleeding more often, you should contact your doctor and discuss any other side effects.
Does Gedarel stop periods? If taken incorrectly your monthly period can happen on differing days each month. If take correctly, you should see a consistent pattern on the same day each month.

The combined oral contraceptive pill is usually just called “the pill”. It contains the female hormones oestrogen and progesterone, which women produce naturally in their ovaries.
The Combined pill is over 99% effective at preventing pregnancy.
The usual way to take the pill is to take one every day for 21 days, then stop for seven days, and during this week you have a period-type bleed. You start taking the pill again after seven days.
You need to take the pill at around the same time every day. You could get pregnant if you don’t do this, or if you miss a pill, or vomit or have severe diarrhoea.
Some medicines may make the pill less effective. Check with your doctor if you’re taking any other tablets.
If you have heavy periods or painful periods, PMS (premenstrual syndrome) or endometriosis the combined pill may help.
The pill does not protect against sexually transmitted infections (STIs), so using a condom as well will help to protect you against STIs.
How the combined pill works
1) prevents the ovaries from releasing an egg each month (ovulation).
2)thickens the mucus in the neck of the womb, so it is harder for sperm to penetrate the womb and reach an egg
3)thins the lining of the womb, so there is less chance of a fertilised egg implanting into the womb and being able to grow
There are many different brands of pill, made up of three main types:
Monophasic 21-day pills
This is the most common type. Each pill has the same amount of hormone in it. One pill is taken each day for 21 days and then no pills are taken for the next seven days. Microgynon, Marvelon, Yasmin and Cilest are examples of this type of pill.
Phasic 21-day pills
Phasic pills contain two or three sections of different coloured pills in a pack. Each section contains a different amount of hormones. One pill is taken each day for 21 days and then no pills are taken for the next seven days. Phasic pills need to be taken in the right order. Logynon is an example of this type of pill.
Every day (ED) pills
There are 21 active pills and seven inactive (dummy) pills in a pack. The two types of pill look different. One pill is taken each day for 28 days with no break between packets of pills. Every day pills need to be taken in the right order. Microgynon ED is an example of this type of pill.
Follow the instructions that come with your packet. If you have any questions, ask your GP, practice nurse or pharmacist.
What to do if you miss a pill
If you continue to be sick, keep using another form of contraception until you’ve taken the pill again for seven days without vomiting.
Who can use the combined pill
If there are no medical reasons why you cannot take the pill, and you don’t smoke, you can take the pill until your menopause. However, the pill is not suitable for all women. To find out whether the pill is right for you, talk to your GP, practice nurse or pharmacist.
You should not take the pill if you:
smoke and are 35 or older
stopped smoking less than a year ago and are 35 or older
are very overweight
take certain medicines (ask your GP or a health professional at a contraception clinic about this)
You should also not take the pill if you have (or have had):
thrombosis (a blood clot) in a vein, for example in your leg or lungs
stroke or any other disease that narrows the arteries
anyone in your close family having a blood clot under the age of 45
a heart abnormality or heart disease, including high blood pressure
severe migraines, especially with aura (warning symptoms)
disease of the gallbladder or liver
diabetes with complications or diabetes for the past 20 years
Risks of taking the combined pill
There are some risks associated with using the combined contraceptive pill. However, these risks are small and, for most women, the benefits of the pill outweigh the risks.
The oestrogen in the pill may cause your blood to clot more readily. If a blood clot develops, it could cause:
deep vein thrombosis (clot in your leg)
pulmonary embolus (clot in your lung)
The risk of getting a blood clot is very small, but your doctor will check if you have certain risk factors that before prescribing the pill.
The pill can be taken with caution if you have one of the risk factors below. It is unlikely you would be advised to take it if you have two or more risk factors.
being 35 years old or over
being a smoker or having quit smoking in the past year
being very overweight (in women with a BMI of 35 or over, the risks of using the pill usually outweigh the benefits)
having migraines (you should not take the pill if you have severe or regular migraine attacks, especially if you get aura or a warning sign before an attack)
having high blood pressure
having had a blood clot or stroke in the past
having a close relative who had a blood clot when they were younger than 45
being immobile for a long time – for example, in a wheelchair or with a leg in plaster
Research is ongoing into the link between breast cancer and the pill. Research suggests that users of all types of hormonal contraception have a slightly higher chance of being diagnosed with breast cancer compared with women who do not use them. However, 10 years after you stop taking the pill, your risk of breast cancer goes back to normal.
Research has also suggested a link between the pill and the risk of developing cervical cancer and a rare form of liver cancer. However, the pill does offer some protection against developing womb (endometrial) cancer, ovarian cancer and colon cancer.
