Desogestrel tablets containing 75 mcg are used as a contraceptive. A small amount of the progestogen desogestrel, a type of female sex hormone, is present in Desogestrel 75 mcg tablets. Because of this, Desogestrel 75 mcg tablets are also known as minipills or progestogen-only pills (POP). The POP or mini-pill does not have an oestrogen hormone next to the progestogen, in contrast to the combination pill.
Desogestrel 75 mcg film-coated tablets is a progesterone-only mini-pill taken as a once-daily dose without a break. Each box contains a 3 month supply and you can order up to two boxes.
The majority of POPs or minipills function primarily by blocking the sperm cells from entering the womb, yet this is not always the case since the main function of combination pills is to prevent the egg cell from developing. In contrast to other mini-pills, Desogestrel 75 mcg tablets provide a dose that is typically high enough to stop the ripening of the egg cell. Therefore, Desogestrel 75 mcg tablets have a high level of contraceptive effectiveness.
Women who cannot take oestrogens and breastfeeding women can both use Desogestrel 75 mcg tablets, instead of the combination pill. The possibility of irregular vaginal bleeding when taking Desogestrel 75 mcg tablets is a drawback. However, you could not be bleeding at all.
If, after taking the medication, your symptoms do not improve or worsen, you must consult your doctor.
