Cerazette contraceptive pills can be used during breastfeeding and do not contain estrogen so do not cause health risks associated with them.
Oestrogen is not present within progestogen-only pills. The medication under the category of progestogen-only-pill (POP) is Cerazette. A type of female sex hormone is present in small quantities in Cerazette known as the progestogen desogestrel.
Best way to prevent pregnancy
The main mechanism of POPs is by stopping the entry of sperm cells into the womb, but egg cell ripening cannot be stopped in this way, making this pill the best way to work in this aspect.
How does it work?
Cerazette Tablet consists of progestin, which is a female hormone. It functions by not allowing fertilization of egg due to sperm or by stopping the release of an egg from the ovary. Another way by which it can function is by further thickening the cervical mucus or by altering the uterus lining (womb) to avoid getting pregnant.
