Contraceptive Pills

UK Meds asked our favorite doctor, Dr. Christian Jessen, to explain Contraceptives. Below is what he has to say.

Contraceptive pills, or birth control pills are a simple and effective way to prevent pregnancy. They can also help make your periods more regular and ease menstrual cramps. They can even, in some cases, help with acne. If you follow instructions properly and you use contraceptive pills in the right way they can provide reliable protection against pregnancy.

They work by stopping ovulation, if there is no egg being released then there is nothing to be fertilized by a sperm. Most birth control pills contain synthetic forms of the female hormones estrogen and progesterone. You can order contraceptive pills by UK Meds, a prescription is required but if you don't have one, the online doctor's service at UK Meds can assist you so you can order your contraceptive pills online, such as Brevinor, Cerazette, Cerelle, Cilest, Dianette, Evra Patch and many others from the convenience of your home.

What is Cerelle?

Cerelle is referred to as a mini-pill. It is also classified as a progestogen-only-pill. The tablets contain only a single active ingredient called synthetic progestogen. When consumed in the right manner, it reflects a 99% success rate in pregnancy prevention.

How does Cerelle work?

The medication convinces the body that ovulation has already occurred. That means the ovaries will not release an egg cell into the uterus. Even if it did, it would not be able to attach to the uterine walls because the pills cause the endometrium to thin out. Aside from that, the medication causes the vaginal fluids to increase in density and make it close to impossible for sperm cells to reach and fertilise the egg.

How to take Cerelle?

Cerelle mini pills are meant to be taken for the full 28-day cycle. There will be no seven-day break in between cycles. Once you have taken the 28th pill, you immediately proceed to consume the next round of medication. You need to continue taking the pills for as long as you want to be protected.

What if I forget to take Cerelle?

  • If you are under 12 hours late, take the missed tablet as soon you can and remember to take the next dose at the usual time.
  • If you are over 12 hours late with taking your pill, the contraceptive protection Cerelle provides could potentially be reduced. The more consecutive tablets you miss, the higher than chance you could fall pregnant.

Side effects and precautions

Just like any medication taken for a long-term period, Cerelle has some side effects too. These are irregular periods, weight gain, sensitivity in the breast area, acne breakouts, reduced libido, depression, nausea, and headaches.

Usually these symptoms would subside naturally. However, if these persist for a long period, please consult your doctor about it.
