What the packet says
What is Nacrez?
What's it made of?
Nacrez contains the hormone desogestrel, a type of progestogen. Other ingredients include maize starch, povidone K30, stearic acid, all-rac-alpha-tocopherol, silica, colloidal anydrous, hypromellose, macrogol 400, talc and titanium dioxide.
How Nacrez works
The progestogen only pill (aka progesterone only pill, POP or mini pill) is a small tablet you swallow daily that (unlike the combined pill) only contains one hormone – progestogen. It prevents pregnancy by making the fluid in your cervix thicker (which makes it more difficult for sperm to enter the womb), and preventing the lining of your womb thickening enough for a fertilised egg to implant in it. The progestogen only pills with desogestrel in them can also stop ovulation.
