In brief: 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. Finally, it changes the lining of the uterus to make pregnancy even less likely.
