What is Cilest?

Cilest is a combined oral contraceptive pill that’s over 99% effective in preventing pregnancy and also treats excess body hair, improves acne and reduces the prevalence of ovarian cysts.

Cilest belongs to a group of contraceptives known as ‘the pill’, all of which administer oestrogen and progestogen to the body, overwriting your natural hormone balance and changing the environment of your reproductive system to such an extent that it’s almost impossible for you to conceive.

If you think the Cilest pill would be the right contraceptive for you, you can buy it online from after completing a consultation. This consultation will be reviewed by one of our doctors who will decide if it’s safe for you to use Cilest. If they think another pill would suit you better, then may recommend another option. However, if they decide it’s safe for you to use they’ll write a prescription and your pack of Cilest will be sent to you via free next-day delivery.

What are the benefits of Cilest?

The benefits associated with the Cilest pill include improved skin and acne, improved hirsutism and a reduced prevalence of ovarian cysts.

Other benefits that are shared by Cilest and other combined oral contraceptives include lighter, more regular and shorter periods.

How does it work?

Cilest administers an artificial oestrogen called ethinylestradiol and an artificial progestogen called norgestimate, which override the natural hormone balance in your body. These hormones change the environment of your reproductive system in three key ways and make it almost impossible for you to conceive.

The progestogen thickens the mucous in the cervix and prevents the womb lining from thickening. The oestrogen in the Cilest pill prevents your ovaries from releasing a mature egg by tricking your body into thinking ovulation has already happened.

These three actions have the following effects:

  • It’s almost impossible for sperm to reach the womb
  • If sperm could reach the womb, it’s almost impossible that there would be an egg waiting to be fertilised
  • In the extremely rare case that sperm could find and reach an egg to fertilise, it won’t be able to implant itself in the womb lining so conception isn’t possible.

Who can take it?

Most non-smokers aged between 18 and 35 can use the Cilest pill safely, though certain conditions will prevent you from being given a prescription for Cilest. If you’re breastfeeding, have recently had a stroke or heart attack, have high blood pressure or a history of circulatory problems, for example, you may not be able to use this contraceptive.

Certain medications might either become ineffective if you use the Cilest pill, or may make this contraceptive ineffective. For this reason, it’s important you tell your doctor about your medical history and any medication you’re using.

How do you take Cilest?

You should take one Cilest pill at the same time each day. You’ll take it for 21 days followed by a seven-day break, during which you’ll still be protected but will experience a withdrawal bleed.

It’s important you don’t forget; missing three or more pills will stop Cilest from being effective and leave you vulnerable to falling pregnant.

Are there any side effects?

There are side effects that are unique to the Cilest pill. A common side effect is weight change, with some women experiencing hair thinning or growth but that’s quite uncommon. In rare cases some women develop small blisters or pimples on their hands and feet, and get red painful lump swelling on their legs.

Other side effects of the contraceptive pill tend to be mild in nature and disappear when the body gets used to the hormones. These include nausea, vomiting, water retention and spotting, to name just a few.

How do you buy Cilest online?
