What is Cilest?

Cilest is a combined hormonal contraceptive pill which contains two hormones progestogen and oestrogen in low doses. Cilest is primarily used to prevent unwanted pregnancy and is also helpful in problems like:

  • Irregular and heavy periods
  • Reducing the chances of the ovary and uterine cancer
  • Pre-menstrual symptoms

The contraceptive Clilque contains two types of female sex hormones, oestrogen and progestogen. These hormones prevent an egg being released from your ovaries so you can’t get pregnant.Also, Cilique makes the fluid (mucus) in your cervix thicker which makes it more difficult for sperm to enter the womb. Cilique is a 21-day Pill - you take one each day for 21 days, followed by 7 days when you take no pills.

Cilest is available in 350/50 microgram (norgestimate, ethinylestradiol) tablets.

Prescription Doctor's private online prescription service makes it quick and easy to get a prescription for Cilest online. Simply complete our free online consultation for our doctor to review. If your order is approved by our doctor, a prescription will be issued for our UK based pharmacy to fulfil. All medicines on our website are approved by the MHRA and are dispatched from a GPhC pharmacy via a next-day discreet delivery.


How does Cilest work?

Cilest contains two hormones, norgestimate and ethinylestradiol, which work in the same way as the naturally occuring female sex hormones; progestogen and oestrogen respectively.

These hormones stop the monthly process of ovulation from ovaries by inhibiting the ripening and release of the egg. Cilest also thickens the mucus present in the cervix and makes it difficult for sperm to traverse across it and reach the egg in the womb. Another way in which Cilest prevents the chances of pregnancy is to change the lining of the uterus and makes it less conducive for the fertilised eggs to implant in it.


How should I take Cilest?

To prevent pregnancy, Cilest should be taken according to instructions provided.

Swallow each tablet whole with a glass of water.

Cilest can be taken with or without food. However, do not drink grapefruit juice while taking Cilest.

Do not crush or chew the tablets.

Taking the pills for 21 days

Cilest comes in a strip containing 21 tablets, each marked with the name of the day on it. Start taking the pills with the correct day name and then follow the directions of arrows printed on the strip. Take the pill for the next 21 consecutive days without a break.

Pill-free week

Once you have taken 21 tablets regularly for 21 days, now have a break on one week called pill-free week. As the name indicates, you will not take any pill during this week, but you will be protected against conception. There will be a withdrawal bleed similar to your periods during this week. On the 8th day, you must start the new pack of 21 pills, irrespective whether your bleeding has stopped or not.

If you are taking the pills regularly, you will always start a new pack on the same day of the week.

Taking Cilest for the first time

If you are taking Cilest for the first time, begin taking tablets from the 1st day of your period. When taken in this way, you will be protected straight away against unwanted pregnancy.

If you start taking Cilest from any other day of your period, you should use additional contraceptive methods like condoms, unless you have taken seven tablets of Cilest regularly.

Switching from another hormonal contraceptive

Ask your family planning nurse or doctor for proper instructions or see the leaflet inside the pack.

Frequently asked questions

What should I do if I forget to take Cilest?

If you miss a pill and remember to take it within 12 hours, you are still protected against pregnancy.

If you have missed one pill for more than 24 hours or have missed more than one pill, then your contraception may have been compromised. Immediately take the missed pill as soon as you remember. In case of more than one pill take the last missed pill even if you have to take two pills at a time. Forget about the previous tablets and leave them in the pack.

If you have missed the pill from the starting or the last week of the strip, you are no longer protected against pregnancy. You should use condoms while having sex for the next seven days or until you have taken pills for the next seven days in a row.

If your pack ends without completing seven pills following the missed pill, start a new pack without having a pill-free week. You will not have your periodic bleeding in these days. But you should expect to have your regular period in the pill-free week after completing the second pack.

If you suffer from severe diarrhoea or vomiting within 4 hours of taking the pill, it is advisable to retake the pill. The absorption of medicine can be reduced when you are observing such problems.

What should I do if I take too many Cilest pills?

If you accidentally take more Cilest than you should, it is unlikely to harm you. If you are at all concerned, speak to your doctor or a pharmacist for advice.

Does Cilest affect my ability to drive?

Cilest should not affect driving or ability to operate machines. If you experience dizziness or drowsiness after taking Cilest, do not drive or operate machinery until you feel well enough to do so.

Can I take Alcohol while taking Cilest?

While alcohol is unlikely to interfere with the effectiveness of Cilest, excessive alcohol consumption may cause vomiting and diarrhoea which may reduce the effectiveness of the pill if these effects occur within 4 hours of taking Cilest.

Alcohol consumption may exacerbate side effects such as dizziness or drowsiness. For these reasons, you should limit or avoid alcohol consumption while taking Cilest.

Does Cilest cause weight gain?

Weight gain is a reported side effect of Cilest, though this is likely caused by fluid retention as a result of an increase of oestrogen. If you are concerned about any of the side effects associated with Cilest, speak to a doctor or pharmacist.

Can I buy Cilest birth control pills online?

You can order Cilest online from Prescription Doctor. If you cannot get to your doctors to renew your prescription, our online service makes it easy to get a prescription from a doctor and have your medicine delivered straight to your door. All our medicines are approved by the MHRA and dispatched from a GPhC registered pharmacy via a next-day discreet service, providing complete privacy when ordering medication online.
