Desogestrel 75 microgram Film-coated Tablets

Desogestrel is used to prevent pregnancy.

Desogestrel contains a small amount of one type of female sex hormone, the progestogen desogestrel. For this reason Desogestrel is called a progestogen-only-pill (POP).

Contrary to the combined pill, the POP does not contain an oestrogen hormone next to the progestogen.

Most POPs work primarily by preventing the sperm cells from entering the womb but do not always prevent the egg cell from ripening, which is the primary action of combined pills. Desogestrel Tablets are different from most POPs in having a dose that in most cases is high enough to prevent the egg cell from ripening. As a result Desogestrel Tablets provide high contraceptive efficiency. In contrast to the combined pill, Desogestrel Tablets can be used by women who do not tolerate oestrogens and by women who are breastfeeding.

A disadvantage is that vaginal bleeding may occur at irregular intervals during the use of Desogestrel Tablets. You also may not have any bleeding at all.
