Desogen , as an oral contraceptive, is a combination of two types of hormones: estrogen and progestin, medically known as desogestrel and ethinyl estradiol. It is often used to prevent pregnancy and regulate the menstrual cycle.
Desogen works by stopping the development of a womans egg every month. As a result, the egg will not be able to accept a sperm and the fertilization cannot occur.
The pills are taken once a day, at the same time, in the order that they appear in the packaging.
Common side effects include prolonged or decreased bleeding at menses, headaches, acne, vomiting, nausea, weight change, and breast tenderness.
Desogen may also be used to treat other conditions, as suggested by your doctor.
