Product information

What is Gedarel?

Gedarel is a combined contraceptive pill that uses two synthetic hormones ethinylestradiol and desogestrel to replicate the action of the bodily hormones oestrogen and progesterone. It is available as Gedarel 20 and Gedarel 30.

Gedarel is suitable for most healthy women of childbearing age, and is valued by many women for its ability to ease all aspects of menstruation.  Gedarel may increase the risk of thrombosis in some women and is unsuitable for women who cannot receive oestrogen. Gedarel is not recommended for heavy smokers over the age of 35 or women who are very overweight.

How to take Gedarel?

Gedarel is a monophasic (uniform dosage) pill that comes in calendar strips of 21 tablets, marked with days of the week. Take each tablet on its appropriate day until all 21 pills have been used. Then wait 7 full days and begin a new packet on the 8th day.

21 days of daily tablets - 7 days of complete rest - 21 days of daily tablets - 7 days of complete rest - and so on...

Your period should occur at some point during each 7 day break. You may find that your bleeding is lighter or shorter in duration than it was previously. 

Who can use Gedarel?

Most healthy women of childbearing age can use Gedarel 20 and Gedarel 30 safely. If used correctly, you have an almost 100% likelihood of avoiding unwanted pregnancy. If you suffer from acne or difficult menstruation Gedarel may be recommended by your doctor. As well as preventing pregnancy, it can alleviate these conditions.
