What is Nacrez?

Nacrez is a contraceptive pill based on only one hormone (desogestrel). This pill is thus part of the category of mini pills. Because Nacrez only contains a progestogen hormone, this pill can be used during breastfeeding. You can order Nacrez online through the pharmacies that work with Dokteronline.com.

What is this medication used for?

The mini pill Nacrez is a contraceptive. The active substance has an effect on the mucous membrane of the cervix: it becomes tougher and thicker, making it more difficult for the sperm to go through it. Nacrez usually also prevents the maturation of an egg. Therefore a pregnancy cannot occur. Nacrez contains only a progestogen and is therefore suitable for women who do not tolerate estrogens. Nacrez (in contrast to the combined pill) is also suitable for women who are breastfeeding.

How to use Nacrez?

The partner pharmacies offer Nacrez online in convenient blister packs of 28 tablets. Using Nacrez is quite easy: take one pill each day until the pack is empty. Then start a new strip. There is no stop week (which is the case in the combined pill). This does affect your menstrual pattern. In the beginning, your periods may become irregular. After a few months, it can also happen that your period gets delayed longer and longer or that it disappears all together. You do not have to worry about that. Always take the mini pill at a fixed time. Make sure that there are no more than 36 hours between two pills. If the laps of time without a pill exceeds 36 hours or if you forget to take the pill, the mini pill is not completely reliable. This is also the case if you vomit or if you suffer from severe diarrhea. In this case, please read the package leaflet for advice or consult a doctor or pharmacist.

Dosage

The dosage of Nacrez is as follows:

  • Women aged 18 and over: 1 tablet once daily at a fixed time.

The contraceptive pill is not recommended for women younger than 18 years. Read the instructions before use.

Side effects

Nacrez can sometimes cause side effects (especially at first) such as:

  • [ji] Irregular bleeding;
  • Strained or painful breasts;
  • Nausea;
  • Acne;
  • Mood disorders;
  • Headache;
  • Weight gain.

If the symptoms do not disappear after a few weeks, please consult a doctor. Also do so if you experience any serious side effects (see package leaflet).

When is it best not to use this medication?

Nacrez is not an appropriate method of contraception for everyone. For example, do not use this medication if you:

  • are oversensitive to desogestrel or any of the excipients used;
  • have (had) breast cancer or thrombosis;
  • suffer or have suffered from a cancer that is sensitive to hormones;
  • suffer or have suffered from jaundice or other serious liver disorders;
  • have unexplained vaginal bleeding.

Inform a doctor if you have other health problems or if you are taking further medication. A doctor knows if you can use Nacrez.

Pregnancy / driving / alcohol

Nacrez is not suitable for pregnant women. You can however use this contraceptive pill if you are breastfeeding. There are no warnings with regards to driving or drinking alcohol.
