Prescription Cilest Drug Information

This medicine can increase your risk of problems such as blood clots and breast cancer. Some women should not take the Pill because of current medical problems or illnesses. To prevent pregnancy it is important to take Cilest as instructed and start each strip on time. Please make sure that you understand what to do if you miss a pill or think you are pregnant Cilest is a combined oral contraceptive pill (the Pill). You take it to stop getting pregnant. This contraceptive contains two types of female sex hormones, oestrogen and progestogen. These hormones prevent an egg being released from your ovaries so you cant get pregnant. Also, Cilest makes the fluid (mucus) in your cervix thicker which makes it more difficult for sperm to enter the womb. Cilest is a 21-day Pill - you take one each day for 21 days, followed by 7 days when you take no pills. The benefits of taking the Pill include: it is one of the most reliable reversible methods of contraception if used correctly, it doesnt interrupt sex, it usually makes your periods regular, lighter and less painful, it may help with pre-menstrual symptoms Cilest will not protect you against sexually transmitted infections, such as Chlamydia or HIV. Only condoms can help to do this. Cilest needs to be taken as directed to prevent pregnancy It is important that you understand the benefits and risks of taking the Pill before you start taking it, or when deciding whether to carry on taking it. Although the Pill is suitable for most healthy women it is not suitable for everyone. Your doctor will ask about you and your familys medical problems and check your blood pressure. You may also need other checks, such as a breast examination but only if these are necessary for you or you have any special concerns. While you are on the Pill You will need regular check-ups with your doctor or family planning nurse, usually when you need another prescription of the Pill. You should go for regular cervical smear tests. Check your breasts and nipples every month for changes ?? tell your doctor if you can see or feel anything odd, such as lumps or dimpling of the skin. If you need a blood test tell your doctor that you are taking the Pill, because the Pill can affect the results of some tests. If youre going to have an operation, make sure your doctor knows about it. You may need to stop taking the Pill about 4??6 weeks before the operation. This is to reduce the risk of a blood clot. Your doctor will tell you when you can start taking the Pill again. The Pill and blood clots The Pill may slightly increase your risk of having a blood clot (called a thrombosis), especially in the first year of taking it. A clot in a leg vein, a deep vein thrombosis (or DVT), is not always serious. However, if it moves up the veins to the lungs, it can cause chest pain, breathlessness, collapse or even death. This is called a pulmonary embolism and is very rare. Your chances of having a blood clot are only increased slightly by taking the Pill. Of 100,000 women who are not on the Pill and not pregnant, about 5 will have a blood clot in a year. Of 100,000 women taking a Pill such as Cilest, about 20-40 will have a blood clot in a year. Of 100,000 women who are pregnant, around 60 will have a blood clot in a year. You are more at risk of having a blood clot in your veins: as you get older, if you are seriously overweight, if you smoke, if you or any of your close family have had blood clots, if you have any blood clotting problem that needs treatment with a medicine such as warfarin, if you are off your feet for a long time because of major surgery, injury or illness, if you have had one or more miscarriages, if you have recently had a baby Tell your doctor if any of these risk factors apply to you. Taking the Pill may add to this risk so Cilest may not be suitable for you.
