Product information

Cimizt is a combined oral contraceptive pill, made by Morningside pharmaceuticals. It is taken once a day for 21 consecutive days in a woman’s menstrual cycle, and is then succeeded by seven pill-free days. The product prevents pregnancy by mimicking the function of hormones in the body.

  1. Branded pill
  2. 99% rate of efficiency
  3. Easy one a day tablet

Every month, the female reproductive system goes through various phases in order to get ready for pregnancy. The process of ovulation involves the production and release of an egg from the ovary, and once this has taken place, the egg is ready to be fertilised by male sperm. Following insemination, the egg makes its way to the uterus, where it attaches to the wall and begins its growth into an embryo. If the egg is not successfully fertilised, it instead simply disintegrates once it has reached the uterus and is secreted by the body during menstruation (along with the lining of the uterus).

The hormones progesterone and oestrogen play a vital part in these processes. The rise and fall in levels of these hormones triggers the start of these movements, and the active constituents in Cimizt prevent them from occurring by simulating the function of these hormones.

Desogestrel, which is an artificial version of progesterone, persuades the body to forego ovulation, thereby preventing the release of an egg; while ethinylestradiol, a man-made version of oestrogen, thickens the consistency of fluid in the cervix so that sperm cannot get through. They also regulate the build up and shedding of the uterine lining, so that a fertilised egg cannot implant there as easily.

Visiting your doctor in person to renew a prescription for the pill isn’t always convenient. Here at, we strive to make the whole process easier by enabling you to get access to the medication you need via our online consultation service. Simply fill in our short medical questionnaire, and your responses will be checked by one of our practising doctors.

Once your order has been confirmed as safe for you, our UK-based pharmacy will dispense and ship your medications to you. We only ever send items by secure, tracked courier, so you can be assured that your medications will arrive safely, and within just one business day.
