What is Cilest?

Cilest is a combined contraceptive pill that works to prevent pregnancy and regulate menstruation symptoms while reducing monthly bleeding. It can be up to 99% effective at preventing pregnancies when taken correctly. 

How does it work?

Cilest contains the hormones ethinylestradiol and norgestimate which prevent ovaries from releasing an egg as well as making it more difficult for sperm cells to reach the egg.

Is Cilest right for me?

Your doctor will recommend a pill that could be right for you. Each contraceptive pill is slightly different as they contain different hormones to prevent menstruation and pregnancy. Cilest is a reliable, easy to take and reversible pill that is favourable to some women.
