What is its effect?
Azalia contains a small amount of a kind of hormone use in the mouth progestagen - desogestrel. Therefore Azalia called tablet containing only progestogen (TSSP) or a mini-tablet. Unlike the combination tablet TSSP Azalia or mini-tablet contains an estrogen hormone, and a progestogen only. Most TSSP or mini-tablets act primarily by preventing the sperm cells to penetrate into the uterus, but not always prevent the egg to mature, which is the main effect of the combination tablet.
Azalia differs from other minitablets in that the dosage is in most cases high enough to prevent the maturation of the oocyte. As a result, Azaliyaosiguryava high contraceptive efficacy. Unlike the combination tablet Azalia can be used by women who are intolerant of estrogens and breast-feeding women. The disadvantage is that it may occur at irregular vaginal bleeding intervals during the use of Azalia.
It is also possible not to have bleeding.

Breast Cancer
Regularly check your breasts and contact your doctor as soon as possible if you feel any lump in the breast.
Breast cancer is found slightly more often in women taking the tablet than in women of the same age who do not take the tablets. Stopping the pill reduces the risk so that 10 years after stopping the risk is the same as in women who have never taken the tablet. Breast cancer is rarely detected under the age of 40, but the risk increases with the age of the woman. Therefore, the additional number of diagnosed cases of breast cancer are higher, if the age at which the woman keeps the tablet was higher.
Every 10,000 women who take the tablets for 5 years but stop taking until the age of 20 would have less than 1 additional case of breast cancer detected up to 10 years after discontinuation, in addition to four 's usually diagnosed cases in this age group. In a similar case, 10 000 women who take the tablets for 5 years but stop taking up to 30 years of age, would have five additional cases in addition to the 44 cases diagnosed usual. 10 000 women who take the tablets for 5 years but stop taking until the age of 40 would have 20 additional cases in addition to the 160 cases diagnosed usual.
It is believed that the risk of breast cancer in women using tablets containing only progestogen as Azalia, is similar to that in women taking the tablet, but the evidence is not conclusive.
Breast cancer detected in women who are taking the tablet is less likely to spread than breast cancer detected in women who do not take the tablets. It is not known whether differences in the risk of breast cancer due to the tablet. It may be due to the fact that women taking the tablet is inspected more frequently and thus the breast cancer is established in advance.

Contact your doctor immediately if you notice possible signs of thrombosis (see "When to consult your doctor"). Thrombosis is the formation of a blood clot which may block a blood vessel.

Deep venous thrombosis is a rare occurrence. This may occur regardless of whether taking the tablet. Also may occur in pregnancy.
