Yes: If you are taking desogestrel as a progestin only pill or as a component of one of the monophasic pills, the day 8 pill and the day 14 pill are the same. Just keep taking them and you can take the day 8 pill on day 14. Good luck ...Read more

Does Cerazette abort a baby?

Does Cerazette abort a baby?

No, generally not: Cerazette (generic name desogestrel) is a progesterone-only contraceptive pill, or "mini pill." it works by keeping your body from releasing an egg from the ovary, and also thickens mucus in the cervix (the opening to the uterus) to prevent sperm from entering.

I have been bleeding in Cerazette after 5months no bleeding, what to do?

Desogestrel only: Cerazette is a pill that only administers a small amount of desogestrel only, no estrogen.

Ask your politicians why can't we use a drug safe in other countries! ...Read more
