How does Cerelle work?

Cerelle contains the active ingredient desogestrel which is a progestogen that is similar to the female sex hormone progesterone. Desogestrel works to prevent pregnancy by:

  • stopping ovulation by preventing your ovaries from releasing an egg
  • making the mucus in your cervix thicker so sperm finds it difficult to get through
  • thinning the lining of your womb so that a fertilised egg can’t implant itself easily

If you take it as prescribed, Cerelle can be 99% effective at stopping pregnancy. Cerelle will be less effective if you vomit, have diarrhoea, miss pills or take certain medicines.

Cerelle doesn’t protect you against sexually transmitted infections (STIs). To protect yourself from STIs, use a barrier method such as condoms, and if you’re worried, go to a sexual health clinic for regular STI checks.
