Cilest contains two types of female sex hormones, oestrogen and progestogen. These hormones prevent an egg being released from your ovaries so you can’t get pregnant.
What is Cilest?
Cilest is a type of drug that prevents pregnancies – a contraceptive that contains both progestogen and estrogen.
What Effect Does Cilest Have In The Body?
Cilest is a contraceptive that contains female sex hormones progestogen and estrogen. Taking this medication prevents the ovaries from releasing an egg, thus, not allowing you to get pregnant. Cilest also helps the cervix's fluid to become thicker to make the womb more difficult to enter.
How Do Patients Benefit From Taking Cilest?
Cilest provides protection against unwanted or unplanned pregnancies, which allows women to enjoy their sex lives and daily activities. The active ingredients, the female hormones, is essential in regulating the menstrual cycle of women. It also prevents the onset of symptoms of women with difficult menstrual periods.
There are two different types of contraceptive pills: there is the combined pill and another one which is called a POP or progestogen-only pill. Cilest falls under the first category, the combined pill, which is more popular not only because it's reversible but also reliable. Apart from making your menstrual cycle lighter, less painful, and regular, taking Cilest will not interrupt your sex life.
How Is Cilest Taken?
Cilest should be prescribed by a doctor before it is used by a patient. Your doctor will give specific instructions on how to take Cilest. You should also understand clearly what the patient information leaflet states. Cilest tablets should be taken orally by drinking the contraceptive with some water, without chewing or crushing it.
Take the first Cilest tablet to include the fifth day of your period to make sure you are protected from unwanted pregnancy. Although you can start Cilest at your discretion, keep in mind that you will not be completely protected until you have taken it 7 days in a row. Thus, you may need additional contraception for the first week of taking Cilest.
For women using a different pill but want to take Cilest, you can opt to start anytime as long as you are not pregnant. If you are taking a non-hormonal contraceptive but it's been five days since your period started, you need to use extra contraception until the first 7 pills are taken correctly.
Women who recently gave birth and want to start taking Cilest is recommended to speak with their doctor since there are high risks of blood clots during this year. Your doctor will determine if Cilest is suited for you in case you had an abortion or suffered from a miscarriage.
Cilest is contained in packets with clear markings of the days of each week, guiding users with arrows on how to use it. The first pill to take is the first day of a week when you will start to take it. For example, if you started the medication on a Wednesday, you must take the tablet marked “Wed” on the first row. Simply follow the arrow's direction until the pack is finished.
After taking all the packet's 21 tablets, you will take no more pills for the next 7 days. You will be protected against any unwanted pregnancies even during this “break”, as long as you took the pills correctly. When the 7-day break has passed, you will start taking a pill on the day following your last one. For example, if Friday was the last day from your previous pack, the new pack should start on a Saturday.
It is normal to experience some vaginal period-like bleeding during the pill break. You should continue to take Cilest as scheduled even if the bleeding has not stopped by the time you have to start a new pack.
What Is The Right Cilest Dosage?
Cilest tablets are film-coated pills that contain 35mcg ethinylestradiol and 250microgram norgestimate each. One tablet should be taken each day at around the same time for 3 weeks or 21 days. There is a pill break for 7 days or one week before a new packet is started, so one pack is technically equivalent to one month or 4 weeks.
Missing a dose or starting to take a new pack late will make the contraceptive less effective. In case you missed a pill, take it immediately as soon as you remember. However, if you miss more than one pill or begin a new pack late by one day, you will not be protected against unwanted pregnancies. In case it happens, you should continue taking the pill as scheduled, but you should take the most recent pill that you missed. Leave any missed ones in the medication but you should get additional protection, like a condom, fo the following 7 days.
If you're not feeling well or experiencing very bad diarrhea, you may not be getting the required hormones from Cilest. In case you feel sick 2 hours after a Cilest pill is taken, get a pill from any Cilest spare strip. Continue taking Cilest as normally as you would and you will be protected from unwanted pregnancies. You can also delay your period by taking Cilest without the typical 7-day no-pill break.
