Gedarel is a type of contraceptive called a combination pill. The active compounds in this medicine prevent pregnancy by simulating the actions of two hormones called progesterone and estrogen.

People also ask

What is Gedarel and is Gedarel a combined pill?

Gedarel is a prescription combined contraceptive pill. The active compounds in this medication prevent pregnancy by simulating the actions of two hormones called progesterone and estrogen. This pill is taken once a day in a row, during the first three weeks of the menstrual cycle. The contraceptive pill Gedarel comes in 2 strengths, Gedarel pill 30/150, which contains 30 micrograms of ethinyl estradiol and 150 micrograms of desogestrel and Gedarel pill 20/150, which contains 20 micrograms of ethinyl estradiol and 150 micrograms of desogestrel.

How does it work?

Gedarel contraceptive pill works because it is based on the interaction of  synthetic, manmade hormones within the pill, known as desogestrel and ethinylestradiol. These hormones are released with the purpose of preventing ovulation so an egg is not released in the womb for fertilisation. The most importants function of the Gedarel pill is the inhibition of ovulation and modifications of the cervical secretion. This means that the progestogen dose is low and increases progressively, keeping the estrogen dose low. With this concept, cycle control can be improved when compared to a single-phase oral contraceptive, maintaining its high contraceptive efficacy. Gedarel also helps to thicken the mucus that is attached to the entrance of the womb which, in turn, aids in stopping the sperm entering through the vagina and ultimately thins the wombs lining to prevent the egg from attaching itself to the wall.

What are the benefits of taking it?

When used correctly and in accordance to the instructions on both the blister and the patient information leaflet, Gedarel boats 99% effectiveness in aiding contraception, and if used incorrectly (i.e. this can be affected by vomiting, diarrhoea and missed days) can still claim 91% effectiveness.
Gedarel also proves to be effective in other aspects outside of preventing pregnancy. It can help in improvement of acne, reducing period pain and PMS related symptoms and helps to create a regular and lighter menstrual cycle.

How do I use it and its dosage?

Always use this medicine exactly as your doctor has told you. In if in doubt, consult your doctor or pharmacist again.

Each Gedarel birth control pill pack contains 1 reminder blister of 21 coated tablets or 3 blisters reminder of 21 coated tablets. The reminder blister has been designed to help remind you to take the tablets.

The blister is marked with the day of the week on which you should take each tablet. You must take one tablet every day for 21 days following the direction of the arrow printed on the pack until the blister is empty.

Then come 7 days when you will not take a tablet. During the 7 days without tablets, on day 2 or 3, you will have withdrawal bleeding similar to menstruation, that is, your period.

Start the next blister on the 8th day (after 7 days without tablets), even if the bleeding has not still over. As long as you take Gedarel correctly, each new blister will always start on the same day of the week, and you will always have your period the same day every 28 days.

You should try to take the tablet at around the same time each day. Maybe what It is easier to take it either before bed or just when you get up.

Swallow each tablet whole, if necessary with water.
