Cilique

Cilique tablets are a type of contraception medication used by women to prevent pregnancy during sex. Contraceptive medicines like cilique are commonly referred to as simply ‘the pill’ and they are a versatile and popular choice of treatment for women looking to protect themselves from pregnancy should they have sex in the near future. Cilique is a very effective treatment provided instructions for use are followed closely. It contains synthetic versions of two female sex hormones and these are used to alter the reproductive cycle in ways that makes pregnancy unable to occur for a temporary period of time.

  • You should take ONE tablet at the same time each day for 21 days, followed by 7 days of not taking any tablets before repeating the cycle. However, if you take a hormonal contraceptive that is designed to be taken every day (also known as an "ED" pill), you should not take a 7 day break after day 21.
  • Always take your tablet at the same time each day
  • If you miss a dose or take your tablet later than you should, read the patient information leaflet or speak to a GP or pharmacist for advice, as you may not be protected against pregnancy.
  • If you experience vomiting or severe diarrhoea, this medication may not work effectively. Because of this, it's recommended that you use condoms or other barrier methods for 7 days after you've experienced illnesses like these.

Cilique contraceptive pill explained

Cilique is a combined hormonal contraceptive pill which is used to prevent pregnancy following sex. Treatments like cilique represent one of the most reliable methods of contraception available to use and it is easily reversible. When taken correctly, Cilique is a very safe and effective method of protecting yourself from pregnancy. However, you should check before using this medication that there aren’t any circumstances related to your health or other medicines you’re using which could cause complications.

How does Cilique work?

Cilique tablets contain synthetic versions of the female sex hormones oestrogen and progesterone. These hormones play a major role in women’s female reproductive cycles. By manipulating these hormones, cilique is able to stop pregnancy from being possible by preventing the release of an egg from the ovaries. Without an egg present during sex, the sperm from the male partner is unable to fertilise it and therefore cause impregnation.

Another thing which cilique does to protect from pregnancy is make the fluid (mucus) in the patient’s cervix thicker. This makes it more difficult for sperm to enter the womb during sex (which is a key part of conception).

Is it safe for me to use Cilique?

Cilique is meant for women who are likely to have unprotected sex in the near future and wish to take precautionary measures to prevent pregnancy. However, even if this applies to you, there are certain health-related circumstances which may make it unsafe to use cilique or similar products.

You should NOT take cilique tablets if any of the following applies to you:

  • You have or have previously had a blood clot in a blood vessel of your legs, lungs or other organs
  • You have a disorder which affects your blood clotting
  • You require an operation or you are off your feet for a long time
  • You have previously experienced a heart attack or stroke
  • You have angina pectoris (a condition which causes severe chest pain) or transient ischaemic attack (temporary stroke symptoms)
  • You have severe diabetes with blood vessel damage
  • You have very high blood pressure
  • You have a very high level of fat in the blood
  • You have a condition called hyperhomocysteinaemia
  • You have a cancer which is in the breast or liver or affected by sex hormones
  • You have or have previously had a type of migraine called migraine with aura
  • You have or have recently had a severe liver disease
  • You have hepatitis C and are taking antiviral drugs to treat it
  • You are experiencing vaginal bleeding which has not been explained by your doctor

If any of these circumstances apply to you or you have any health conditions not mentioned in the list above, it’s important to discuss these with your doctor so that precautions or alternative treatment can be arranged. On a similar note, you should also disclose any other medications which you are currently taking or have recently used to your doctor or local pharmacist before you start using cilique. This is because certain medicines can interfere with contraceptives or it could be the other way round.

It is especially important to mention if you are taking any of the following:

  • Any medicines to treat epilepsy (certain ones can reduce the effects of cilique)
  • Paracetamol
  • Aspirin
  • Morphine
  • Insulin or other anti-diabetic drugs
  • Bosentan (used for treating high blood pressure in the blood vessels of the lungs)
  • A medicine to treat tuberculosis (such as rifampicin or rifabutin)
  • An anti-HIV medicine
  • Boceprevir and telaprevir (both are used to treat hepatitis C infections)
  • Aprepitant and fosaprepitant (both are used to prevent nausea and vomiting caused by certain cancer drug treatments)
  • Griseofulvin or other drugs used to treat fungal infections
  • Modafinil (used to treat excessive daytime sleepiness)
  • Certain sedatives called ‘barbiturates’
  • St. John’s Wort
  • Metoclopramide (increases movement through the gut)
  • Charcoal
  • Colesevelam (treats high cholesterol levels)
  • Etoricoxib (helps with pain and inflammation of arthritis)
  • Vitamin C (ascorbic acid)
  • Atorvastatin or rosuvastatin (both treat high cholesterol levels)
  • Ciclosporin (used to prevent transplant rejection or to treat either rheumatoid arthritis or certain skin problems)
  • Omeprazole (used to reduce acid in the stomach)
  • Prednisolone (a steroid which reduces inflammation)
  • Selegiline (used for Parkinson’s disease)
  • Theophylline (used for asthma, bronchitis and emphysema)
  • Tizanidine (relaxes muscles)
  • Clofibric acid (for high cholesterol levels)
  • Temazepam (treats anxiety)

Cilique dosage instructions

Cilique comes in a strip of 21 pills, each marked with a day of the week. A pack of this medicine holds 3 strips in total.

When given this medication, a single pill should be taken for 21 days in a row. Each pill should be taken around the same time every day. When you have taken 21 pills over the 21-day period, you will then take no pills over the following 7 days.

After this period of 7 days has passed, you can start the next strip of pills. Within a few days of taking the last pill from the strip, you should have a withdrawal bleed like a period (which may or may not have ended by the time you’re due your next course of pills). As long as you have followed the dosage instructions correctly, you should not need extra contraception during the seven pill-free days. The best day to start taking these pills depends on certain circumstances, so check with your doctor or the patient information leaflet for more details about this.

Cilique pill side effects

Like with other medicines, it is possible to experience side effects as a result of taking cilique, although not all patients notice them. Some side effects are more commonly reported than others, but they are usually relatively mild and short-lived.

The most commonly reported side effects linked to cilique include the following:

  • Headaches
  • Stomach problems
  • Bleeding and spotting between your periods for the first few months of taking the pills
  • Painful or unusual periods
  • Migraines
  • Swollen hands, ankles or feet
  • Mood changes
  • Feeling nervous or dizzy
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Stomach ache and bloating (with possible constipation and wind)
  • Acne/rash
  • Muscle spasms in the legs, arms and back
  • Painful breasts
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Vaginal discharge
  • Absence of menstrual periods
  • Feeling weak
  • Weight gain

If you experience any side effects which feel particularly severe or prolonged, then you should report this to your doctor as soon as possible. It may prove necessary to stop taking this medication in such cases.
