Cerelle is a contraceptive pill containing only the hormone ‘progesterone’. This is also known as the ‘mini-pill’ and is effective in preventing unwanted pregnancy. The Cerelle contraceptive pill is prescribed to women who are breastfeeding or women whose health does not respond well to an oral intake of estrogen hormone. 

Cerelle is a progesterone-only pill (POP or mini-pill) used for contraception. This form of oral contraception offers women a lot of benefits, such as –

  • Cerelle is a mini-pill and not a combined oral contraceptive pill. This makes it a suitable option for contraception for women who are breastfeeding or have a low tolerance for estrogen.

  • Cerelle is a highly effective contraceptive pill that contains progesterone. Progesterone prevents sperm cells from entering the uterus and also prevents the egg cell from ripening.

  • Taking Cerelle provides women with protection against unwanted pregnancy. This gives women a lot of freedom in their daily lives and sexual lives. 

Cerelle contraceptive mini-pill is 99% effective in preventing unwanted pregnancy if taken correctly. If you have vomiting or diarrhea, you may not be protected against pregnancy as the pill may leave your body without being completely absorbed.

If you start taking Cerelle within the first five days of your menstrual cycle, you are immediately protected against pregnancy.

Cerelle is a progesterone-only pill or POP also known as mini-pill. The active ingredient in Cerelle is Desogestrel – a synthetic form of progesterone hormone similar ingredient which is also present in generic Desogestrel. A few other mini pills with the same content are Feonolla and Zelleta. A regular dosage of Cerelle pill prevents the sperm cells from entering the uterus and also prevents the egg cells in the ovaries from ripening.

If you start to take Cerelle within the first five days of your period, you will be immediately protected against pregnancy. If you start taking Cerelle after day 5 of your period or later, you will need to use additional contraception such as condoms for at least a week to protect yourself from unwanted pregnancy.

Cerelle is a progesterone-only mini-pill. You can stop taking the mini-pill whenever you want. Your body may take some time to adjust to the change and your periods may take up to 3 months to regularize.

Cerelle is a prescription-only contraceptive pill. Follow your doctor’s advice to understand how you should take your Cerelle mini-pill. Usually, it is recommended that

  • Take one pill every day until you finish the pack and then start the next pack without any breaks in between.

  • Take the tablets orally by swallowing them whole with some water.

  • If you are starting Cerelle as the first method of oral contraception in your life, wait for your period to begin and take the first Cerelle tablet on the first day of your period. Then continue to take one pill per day every day.

  • If you are switching over to Cerelle from some other contraceptive pill, start taking Cerelle immediately the next day after you take the last pill from the old pack.

  • If you have just had a baby, wait for 21 to 28 days before starting Cerelle contraceptive pills again. If you are breastfeeding or have had a miscarriage, take your doctor’s advice to know the best method of contraception for yourself.

  • The packet is marked with days of the week, select your first pill based on the day of the week that you are starting the pack and follow the arrow signs on the pack to continue taking one pill per day until you finish the pack and start the next pack without a break.

  • Cerelle mini-pills come in a pack of 28 pills, which is meant to be taken one pill per day every day for four weeks. Then begin the next pack without a break.

  • If you miss a pill, take it as soon as you remember within 12 hours. Then take the next pill at the same time the next day. You will still be protected against pregnancy.

  • If you are more than 12 hours late, you may not be protected against pregnancy. Take the pill as soon as you remember, then take the next pill at your regular time. This may mean taking two pills in one day, which is not a problem. In this case, use additional contraception such as condoms for at least seven days.

  • If you have vomited or had a bout of diarrhea within 3 to 4 hours of taking your pill, then it may have left your body without getting fully absorbed. Follow the same advice as for missed pills, in this case, to remain protected against pregnancy.
