Side Effects & Warnings
What is it?
Zoely is unique from other contraceptive pills as it contains a synthetically produced oestrogen identical to natural human 17β estradiol (E2); and 2.5mg nomegestrol acetate (NOMAC).
How does it work?
Zoely is a combined oral contraceptive pill that has been shown to dramatically reduce side effects such as acne that can be experienced with other birth control pills. It is the anti-androgen that blocks testosterone, therefore making Zoely beneficial for women who suffer with frequent acne. Zoely does not raise LDL cholesterol and triglycerides as other contraceptive pills can.
When to start start taking?
No preceding hormonal contraceptive use (in the past month) tablet-taking has to start on day 1 of the your natural cycle (i.e. the first day of menstrual bleeding). When doing so, no additional contraceptive measures are necessary.
How to take?
One tablet a day is taken for as long as contraception is required, starting with an active tablet on the first day of the cycle. Zoely comes in blisters containing 28 tablets (24 white tablets followed by 4 yellow tablets), which are taken in sequence using stickers to identify the days of the week for each tablet.
What happens if you miss taking a tablet?
Please consult the Zoely patient information leaflet contained within your medication as this gives precise details that you need to follow.
