Description

Desogestrel as a Contraception

Desogestrel tablets contain Desogestrel, a synthetic analogue to the female reproductive hormone progesterone. It is a progesterone-only pill used for contraception and can be up to 99% effective at preventing pregnancy when taken correctly.

Progesterone-only pills are a suitable alternative for people who cannot take oestrogen, such as when breastfeeding.

What is Desogestrel and how does it work?

Desogestrel is a synthetic hormone that can thicken the cervical mucus and sometimes also prevent an egg from ripening. This makes it more difficult for sperm to penetrate the womb and prevent an egg from releasing. 

Is Desogestrel right for me?

If you are looking for an effective oral contraceptive, Desogestrel may be right for you. However, it may not be suitable for you if you have the following:

  • If you are allergic to desogestrel or any other ingredients of this medicine
  • If you have thrombosis 
  • If you have ever had a blood clot or are at risk of a blood clot
  • If you have severe heart, liver or kidney problems
  • If you are suspected of having breast cancer
  • If you have unexplained bleeding from the vagina
