Cerazette is distinct from other mini-pills because, like combined pills, in most cases it does prevent the egg cells from ripening. As a result, Cerazette provides high contraceptive efficacy. In contrast to the combined pill, Cerazette can be used by women who do not tolerate oestrogens and by women who are breast feeding. A disadvantage is that vaginal bleeding may occur at irregular intervals during the use of Cerazette. You also may not have any bleeding at all.
This is a contraceptive pill that contains a small amount of a female sex hormone, a progesterone (desogestrel) For this reason Cerelle® is called a progesterone only pill (POP) or mini pill. Unlike combined oral contraceptive pills, the POP or mini pill does not contain an oestrogen hormone, only a progesterone.
Emergency contraception-- also called postcoital contraception-- is a form of birth control that may be used by women who have had unprotected sex or used a birth control method that failed. The treatment generally is reserved for specific situations and is not a regular method of birth control.
While the "mini-pill" is more effective than certain other methods of birth control (such as condoms, cervical cap, diaphragm), it is less effective than combination hormone (estrogen and progestin) birth control because it does not consistently prevent ovulation. It is usually used by women who cannot take estrogen.
In women who may not be considered safe for the use of estrogen-containing contraceptives, hormonal contraception using progestin-only compounds remains another option for effective pregnancy prevention. 29 Progestin-only contraceptives come in a variety of delivery methods including oral, every-3-month intramuscular injections, a 3-year subcutaneous implantable device, and a levoprogesterone-containing IUD.
Common types of hormonal birth control include: "The Pill" (oral contraceptives), injection (Depo-Provera, Lunelle), the patch (Ortho-Evra), and the vaginal ring (Nuvaring). Parathyroidectomy Parathyroidectomy is the removal of one or more of the parathyroid glands to treat hyperparathyroidism.
There are many different types of contraception, but not all types are appropriate for all situations. The most appropriate method of birth control depends on an individual's overall health, age, frequency of sexual activity, number of sexual partners, desire to have children in the future, and family history of certain diseases.
