What is Zelleta?

Zelleta is a progesterone-only-pill, known as a POP or mini-pill which works to prevent pregnancy. Zelleta contains a small dose of the female sex hormone progesterone and does not contain any oestrogen.

How does it work?

This contraception works by preventing the sperm cells from entering the womb. It is also a stronger POP medication than most as it contains a higher dose of progesterone to prevent the female egg from ripening.

Is Zelleta suitable for me?

As Zelleta is a progesterone-only birth control pill, it may be suitable for those who cannot tolerate oestrogen. This may also be a more suitable birth control option for those who are breast feeding.

What to do if you there is a missed pill when taking Zelleta?

  • If you have forgotten to take the tablet and you are less than 12 hours late:

Take the missed pill as soon as you remember and take the next one at the usual time. The Zelleta pill will still protect you from pregnancy.

  • If you are more than 12 hours late.

If you are more than 12 hours late in taking any tablet, you may not be completely protected against pregnancy. Take a tablet as soon as you remember and take the next one at the usual time. This may mean that you take 2 in one day. You should continue to take your tablets as usual but you must also use an extra method of contraception, such as a condom or other barrier method, for the next 7 days.

Do you get periods on Zelleta?

There is a chance that this medication will cause vaginal bleeding, either slight staining or heavier bleeding. This is not a sign that the medication is not working.

You should continue to take the medication as normal if this occurs. However, if the bleeding is heavy or prolonged, you should consult your doctor.


Does Zelleta cause weight loss?

Weight loss is not a listed side effect of this medication. Weight increase, however is a listed side effect that may affect less than 1 in 10 women.

Is Zelleta the same as Cerazette?

Zelleta and Cerazette both contain the same amount (75mg) of the active ingredient desogestrel. Both pills are considered to work in the same way to prevent pregnancy.
