What our users say
I taken the Zelleta minipill for nearly 2 years now and haven't had a period since. Its great now but it worried me alot to start with I constantly thought the pill had failed and I was pregnant.
Excellent, I was really impressed with the speed of everything, from being communicated with by a clinician to receiving my order. Packaging is completely discreet and the information is thorough.
How to take Zelleta
Take one pill every day within the same 12 hour window. Don’t take a break between packs. There are 28 pills per pack.
You are protected from pregnancy straight away if you start taking the progestogen only pill on the first day of your period. When you stop using the pill your fertility will return to normal.
When to try Zelleta
Zelleta is suitable for people who can’t take oestrogen or the combined pill. You need to take Zelleta within the same 12 hour period each day.
If you are using a 3 hour pill and you often forget to take it on time, you might find it easier to take Zelleta. It’s ok to try different oral contraception for a few months each. Keep a record of how you feel and how each pill affects your body and mind.
How Zelleta affects your period
Zelleta can make your periods irregular. You may bleed less often or periods may stop completely. Your periods could become lighter or heavier. Some women find Zelleta helps with premenstrual symptoms or painful periods.
Do you ovulate with Zelleta?
Zelleta works by stopping ovulation for most people.
For a small number of people with uteruses (about 4 in 10) they may still ovulate on the progesterone only pill. They will still be protected from pregnancy.
Can I take Zelleta while breastfeeding?
Taking Zelleta whilst breastfeeding is safe and does not cause any harm to your baby.
