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.

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.
