WHAT IS GESTODETTE AND WHAT TO USE
Gestodette coated tablets (called as Gestodet) is an oral contraceptive containing a combination of two female sex hormones. It can be used to prevent unwanted pregnancy.
Both hormones are etinilestradiol (has an effect similar to estrogen) and gestodene (has an effect similar to natural lutealen hormone, progesterone). Because of the product contained in the two types of hormones, it belongs to the Group of so-called. "combined" products, as the tablets are identical to the "start" tablets.
Oral contraceptives are highly effective means of family planning. If taken precisely in accordance with the instructions (without skipping pills), they provide almost complete protection from unwanted pregnancy.
