What is Cilest?

Cilest is a hormonal contraceptive under the category of the combined pill as it contains both synthetic oestrogen and progesterone to provide near 100% protection against pregnancy. Cilest, and other combined contraceptives, may be referred to as 'the pill'.

When taken on the first scheduled day of your period, Cilest pills provide immediate protection of over 99% against pregnancy, and is easy and convenient to take for the vast majority of women; a Cilest birth control pill only needs to be taken once a day, at the same time. Many women decide to take their contraceptive tablet either first thing in the morning or last thing at night to minimise the risk of forgetting.

Whilst the Cilest contraceptive pill was developed to stop unwanted pregnancies and is highly successful at doing so, there are a number of additional benefits that can make this pill multi-talented for most women, and means you could be taking it for other reasons besides pregnancy prevention.

  • Can help make your periods lighter and less painful, as well as reducing cramps and other PMS symptoms.
  • It regulates the menstrual cycle and allows you to predict when your next period will start.
  • This contraceptive pill is also used to manage the symptoms of endometriosis, a condition where parts of the womb lining grow on the organs outside the womb and cause intense pain in the lower abdomen, back and pelvis.

How does Cilest work?

Cilest is a combined pill, which means that it contains both oestrogen and progesterone. Combined pills differ in their active ingredients. For Cilest, the active ingredients present in each tablet are ethinylestradiol (synthetic version of oestrogen) and norgestimate (synthetic version of progesterone. However, all combined pills work in the same three ways to manipulate the natural menstrual cycle to prevent conception.

This contraceptive pill works by…

  • Preventing ovulation (the release of an egg for fertilisation) from occurring
  • Thickening the cervical mucus to prevent sperm from entering the womb
  • Changing the womb lining so that an egg cannot grow there

Hormonal contraceptives will only prevent a pregnancy if they are taken regularly. It is also important you take this medicine at the same time each day. If you want immediate protection against pregnancy, then it's advised that you start to take the pill on the first day of your menstrual period. If not, then it's important to use barrier contraception (condoms) for a further seven days.

Cilest tablets, and all hormonal contraception, does not provide protection against sexually transmitted infections (STIs) so if you are not 100% sure about your sexual health, or your partner(s), condoms are the best form of protection. It is also advised to head to the sexual health clinic or GUM clinic to get checked as many STIs are symptomless.

How to take Cilest

Taking hormonal contraceptives are often easy, and as the tablets are small, you can easily swallow without water. Cilest is no different.

  • You should start taking Cilest on the first day of your period for immediate protection. You can take the contraceptive pill up until the fifth day of your period, but you will only be protected after seven days.
  • This birth control tablet is a 21-day pill, so it should be taken for 21 days of your cycle, followed by a seven-day break.
  • Take each pill at the same time of the day (first thing in the morning or last thing at night is often advised as you can forget when busy throughout the day).
  • During the seven-day break, you will experience a withdrawal bleed similar to your period. This helps the hormones leave your system. You won't have your period as usual, because Cilest prevents ovulation.
  • After your seven-day break, you need to remember to start your new pack.

You don't have to worry about additional protection against conception during the seven pill-free days, as the hormones that are already in your system will still cover you for the full menstrual cycle.

Cilest contraceptives are easy to take. The only issue will be remembering to take them. If you're prone to forgetting the pill, two or more missed over the 21 days will affect the effectiveness of this medication. For more information on what to do if you've missed the pill, please refer to our combined pill page or contact your doctor for further information. If you've had sex and missed a couple of pills in one blister pack, you may need to buy emergency contraception.

Cilest dosages

Cilest tablets are only available in one dosage and this dosage is the same in each pill and in each blister pack.

Each tablet contains 250mcg of norgestimate and 35mcg of ethinylestradiol. Whilst the days on each blister pack is clearly marked for your convenience, this means that you can take each pill in the wrong order and still be fully protected, as long as you take one daily for 21 consecutive days.

Precautions of Cilest

You can take Cilest birth control pills if you are a woman over the age of 18, are not pregnant or breastfeeding and are looking for a low-dose oral contraceptive pill to prevent pregnancy.

You cannot take Cilest if you are pregnant or think you may be pregnant. This particular birth control pill is also unsuitable if you have heart, liver or circulation problems, high blood pressure, hypertension and if you are a smoker over the age of 35. If you have had any of the following medical conditions, you shouldn't take this contraceptive pill; phlebitis, blood clotting, hepatitis, jaundice, systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), herpes, severe skin itching, otosclerosis or tumours (cancer) of the breast, womb or ovary. If you currently have rotor syndrome, Dubin-Johnson syndrome, Porphyria, liver cell tumours, moderate or severe high blood pressure, hyperlipoproteinaemia or gallstones, you also should not take this combined pill.

If you have any of these conditions, Cilest may not be suitable for you, however there are many other forms of contraception that will be, such as hormonal tablets like the mini pill, the vagina ring or the injection. You should ensure that you mention any medications or other information about your health when complete your free online consultation.

Cilest side effects

Cilest contraceptive pills can cause side effects if you are sensitive to the active ingredients (the synthetic hormones) in the medicine. Side effects sometimes affect first-time users of the pill because they aren't yet used to the treatment. However, these symptoms don't affect everybody and usually disappear within several days. It is advised to keep taking Cilest for the first three months, unless you are experiencing any serious side effects, to let your body become accustomed to the adjustment of hormones.

The most common side effects are nausea, vomiting, headaches, breast tenderness, weight fluctuations, fluid retention and vaginal thrush.
