Gedarel Contraceptive Pill


Combined Contraceptive Pill »

Gedarel is a brand of combined contraceptive pill that contains two hormones to control your menstrual cycle in a low dose form. It is manufactured by Gedeon Richter Plc and is a very effective method of contraception. It contains two hormone derivatives of the hormones oestrogen and progestogen and has three main mechanisms to protect you from pregnancy.

It is a monophasic pill, which means that each pill you take contains the same level of hormones as all the other pills. It is classed as a low dose pill and contains 30mg of ethinylestradiol and 150mg of desogestrel, which are the hormone derivatives of the hormones oestrogen and progestogen. It prevents pregnancy by stopping an egg from being released at the time of ovulation, thickens the mucous lining your vagina and thins the uterus wall.

There are 21 pills in a pack of Gedarel. Therefore, you take a pill every day at the same time for 21 days until the pack is used up. Then you experience a withdrawal bleed during a pill free week. You have seven days where you do not take any pills whatsoever. You restart the next strip of Gedarel on the eighth pill free day in order to be protected from pregnancy. If you use Gedarel correctly, it will be very successful.

The combined contraceptive pill is very effective from protecting you from pregnancy and is very efficient in doing so. It does not interfere with sex and it is a very discrete method of contraception. It also helps to regulate your periods so you know when you will have one, not to mention that it makes them shorter and lighter. It is also reversible, so if you decide you do not want to use Gedarel, its effects will stop once you stop taking the pill. The only downside of this form of contraception is that it will not protect you from sexually transmitted infections because the only contraception that will do so are condoms.

The pill contains active and inactive ingredients. The active ingredients are the hormones and the pill also contains a number of inactive ingredients, which include starch, magnesium stearate, stearic acid, all-rac-alpha-tocopherol, silica colloidal anhydrous and povidone.
