How it works
Desogestrel is a progestin (female hormones). It works to prevent pregnancy by preventing the release of an egg from the ovary or preventing fertilization of the egg by sperm (male reproductive cells). It also may work by changing the lining of the uterus (womb) to prevent the development of a pregnancy. Ethinyl Estradiol is a synthetic oestrogen (female hormone). In women of reproductive age, it helps in maintaining normal menstrual cycle (periods). In women undergoing menopause, it works by replacing deficient oestrogen levels, thereby preventing symptoms such as hot flushes, night sweats and mood swings.
