Details

HOW DOES IT WORK?

This pill works primarily by preventing the sperm cells from entering the uterus (womb), unlike combined pills; they do not always stop an egg cell from maturing.

WHY IS CERAZETTE USED?

When Cerazette is taken in a proper dose (without missing tablets), the chance of getting pregnant is very low.

SIDE EFFECTS-

The most common reported side effects are altered mood, headache, increased body weight, acne, nausea, vomiting, decreased sexual drive (libido), breast pain, irregular or no menstruation.

A disadvantage associated with this pill is that vaginal bleeding may occur at irregular intervals. You also may not have any bleeding at all.

WHEN SHOULD YOU NOT TAKE CERAZETTE?

Do not use Cerazette if you have any of the conditions listed below:

  • If you are hypersensitive to any of the ingredients of Cerazette.
  • If you have any unexplained vaginal bleeding.
  • If you have a thrombosis (formation of blood clots in a blood vessel or the lungs)
  • If you have a cancer that develops under the stimulus of sex steroid hormones.
  • If you are pregnant or think you might be pregnant.
  • If you have jaundice (yellowing of the skin) or severe liver disease.
  • If you have high blood pressure, diabetes, epilepsy or breast cancer.

HOW TO TAKE THE TABLETS?

The Cerazette pack contains 28 tablets. Each day corresponds to one tablet. Every time you start a new pack of Cerazette, take a tablet from the top row. Don’t start with just any tablet.

Take your tablet each day at about the same time. Swallow the tablet whole, with water. You must continue to take the tablets normally, though you may have some bleeding during the use of Cerazette. When a pack is used, you must start with a new pack of this pill on the following day, thus without interruption and without waiting for a bleed. You can discontinue taking Cerazette whenever you wish. You are no longer protected from pregnancy from the day you stop taking this pill.

IN CASE YOU MISS TAKING ONE OR MORE TABLETS-

  • If you are less than 12 hours late in taking a tablet, the consistency of Cerazette is maintained. Take the missed tablet as soon as you remember and take the next tablet at the usual time.
  • If you are more than 12 hours late in taking any tablet, the consistency of Cerazette may get reduced.

The higher is the risk of a decreased contraceptive efficacy, the more consecutive tablets you miss. Take the last missed tablet as soon as you think of taking it and take the next tablet at the usual time. Use another birth control measure like condom for the next 7 days of tablet-taking. If you missed one or more tablets in the first week of tablet-intake and had intercourse in the week before missing the tablets, there is a possibility of becoming pregnant. Contact your doctor for guidance.

IF TOO MANY CERAZETTE TABLETS ARE TAKEN (OVERDOSE)-

Symptoms of overdose with Cerazette tablets that may occur are nausea, vomiting and, in women or girls, slight vaginal bleeding. Seek medical help if these symptoms worsen or persist.

STORAGE CONDITIONS-

Store these tablets at a temperature between 2°C to 30°C, protected from light and moisture. Do not use after the expiry date stated on the package.
