Desogen, as well as its analogues Cyclessa, Velivet, Mircette, Kariva and others, is a combined oral contraceptive, belonging to the third generation of oral contraceptives. Desogen contains Desogestrel, a progestine, which has a hormone-like effect on human body. Apparently, Desogen is primarily used for contraception in women, depending on their health conditions and medical indications. Having a complex effect on female body, it reliably reduces the risk of becoming pregnant to a very low percent (less than 0.1% in most cases). However, as any medication, especially with a wide specter of effects, it may cause adverse reactions and complications.
Desogen was developed in 1981, and currently it is one of the most popular oral contraceptive. In the United States, the medication has a prescription-only legal status, which makes it impossible to find Desogen for sale without prescription. Patients, who want to purchase Desogen, are forced to visit a doctor and get a prescription. However, the medication is relatively safe (if you abide by the rules and follow the precautions), and some generic drug manufacturers offer an opportunity to order Desogen online with no prescription as a generic medication (Desogestrel). Additionally, you can save money by not paying for the overpriced brand medication, like when you buy drugs from local pharmacies or drug stores.
Desogen is a combination of Ethinylestradiol and Desogestrel, synthetic analogues of estrogen and progesterone hormones. Estrogen in oral contraceptives is responsible for pausing the menstrual cycle, thus preventing the release of eggs to womb, where they could be inseminated. Desogestrel, in its turn, enhances cervical mucus and womb lining, preventing sperm injection into womb, and fertilized egg attachment to the uterus. Thus, the probability of conceiving on Desogen is extremely low.
Desogen is a powerful medication, and thus it requires careful attention. You should not use the drug if you do not now, how much Desogen is safe. You should ask your doctor "How much Desogen should I take?" before you order it online. It is important to determine possible interactions and contraindications. Any adverse effects you may experience should be reported to medical staff, so they could advise you on countering them.
Desogen is contraindicated to patients with hormone-related cancer, blood-clotting disorder, liver disorder, hypertension, depression, migraines, seizures, tuberculosis, high cholesterol and many other conditions. Ask your doctor about it. You should take Desogen very carefully if you smoke or you are over 35 years old. Before you take the drug, make sure that you have familiarized yourself with the instructions included in the package. Doctor consultation is highly recommended to anyone, who has not taken Desogen before.
Proper Desogen dosage is very important if you want your oral contraception to work reliably. You should never miss the dose of Desogen, because it may result in unwanted pregnancy or menstrual cycle shift. You should take the first pill of Desogen on the first day of the period and take one pill every day ever since, until the end of the therapy, determined by your doctor. While missing the dose is very dangerous, Desogen overdose is even worse. Even if you have missed your dose, never take two pills or otherwise overdose the drug. Do not take the medication after your therapy is over.
Common adverse effects of Desogen include dizziness, hypertension, headache, migraine, nausea, excessive menstrual bleeding, vulvovaginal candidiasis, vaginitis, and acne vulgaris. Desogen is known to increase blood clots formation, which can be dangerous if the patient is predisposed to blood circulation problems. Overdosing medication or using it improperly may enhance the risks of adverse effects. Thus, it is highly recommended to consult your doctor, and take the first few months of the therapy under a medical supervision.
