What is Charozetta?
The most optimal drug for preventing unwanted pregnancy, which is prescribed even by obstetrician-gynecologists before discharge from the hospital, is Charozetta. The agent is still known as Lactineth. It is in great demand among nursing mothers, as it has an excellent contraceptive property. When taking Charozetta, pregnancy may occur in 0, 4% of cases out of 100. The way of non-appearance of conception is suppression of ovulation, that is maturation of the egg. Another contraceptive effect is the thickening of the mucus of the cervical canal, as a result of which it is much more difficult for spermatozoa to enter the uterine cavity through the cervix. Contraceptive effect is achieved with the help of progesterone analog - desogestrel. The hormone does not affect lactation in any way and does not change the concentration of proteins, fats and lactose in breast milk. Researches of scientists have shown, that that small dose of a hormone which nevertheless gets in chest milk, does not render absolutely any influence on growth and development of the kid. The study compared the development of breastfed babies, whose mothers took Charozette, with the rate of growth of babies whose mothers did not take hormonal contraceptives. During the experiment, there were no differences. Consequently, we can conclude that the contraceptive does not affect the child's body. The drug can also be prescribed to women who are contraindicated in taking estrogen.
Method of application of Charosette and doses
Gynecologists prescribe to take the contraceptive 6 weeks after the birth. As expected, every woman after the termination of postpartum discharge visits her doctor for a routine examination. At the reception, a specialist examines the patient and appoints a survey, according to which the drug will be recommended. If during this period the woman had sexual intercourse, then it is necessary to exclude the presence of pregnancy.
Charozetta is released in a blister pack of 28 tablets, which must be taken from the first day of the menstrual cycle every day, approximately at the same time. For convenience, the manufacturer on the blister of contraceptives has placed a special scheme that will help a woman to control the taking of the drug. After the end of one package, proceeding to take the tablets with the second is necessary without interruption. When taking Charozetta, there is no need to make a gap between packages and wait for menstruation.
There are cases when a woman has forgotten or because of any circumstances she missed taking a contraceptive. If the missed time is less than 12 hours, then it is necessary to take the pill as soon as possible, and the next method to continue according to the scheme. If you are delayed receiving Charozetta for more than 12 hours, then in the next 7 days you need to use additional methods of contraception, for example, condoms. If a sexual intercourse was committed shortly before the admission, pregnancy should be ruled out. Vomiting and diarrhea interfere with the absorption of the active substance into the bloodstream, so if you have a first or second condition, then it must be equated with a missed receipt of the next pill and take action, described above.
When Charozetta is admitted, the appearance of irregular spotting spotting from the vagina is not ruled out. If their intensity or frequency increases, it is necessary to consult a doctor to eliminate organic pathology and a possible replacement of the contraceptive method.
If you came to a conclusion about stopping the use of a contraceptive, then you can stop any day. The next ovulation will take place between 1 week and a month.
There are a number of diseases and conditions in which the appointment of Charozetta is unacceptable. First of all, you must exclude the presence of pregnancy. The contraceptive is also prohibited in the following diseases:
- venous thromboembolism;
- severe liver disease and liver failure now and in the past;
- the presence or suggestion of the presence of tumors that depend on hormones;
- bleeding from the vagina of an unknown cause;
- Lactase insufficiency, lactose intolerance and glucose-galactose malabsorption;
- Individual intolerance to constituent components.
As a result of taking Charozetta, the following side effects are not excluded:
- soreness of the mammary glands;
- minor vaginal bleeding;
- changes in mood, depression;
- increase in body weight;
- Allergic rashes on the skin.
Interaction with other medications
Sorbents, activated charcoal and antibiotics such as ampicillins and tetracyclines are able to weaken the contraceptive property. Carbamazepine, rifampicin, gryzeofulvin, hepatic enzymes and barbiturates also decrease the activity of desogestrel. If simultaneous reception of rifampicin with a contraceptive can not be ruled out, then barrier contraception should be used.
Take hormonal contraceptives with caution, following all the doctor's recommendations. It is also highly discouraged to prescribe and change the dose of contraceptives on their own.
