What is Crisanta?

Crisanta is a combined contraceptive pill that is manufactured by Cipla Ltd. Combined oral contraceptives contain two active ingredients, providing an extremely high level of protection against unwanted pregnancies.

Crisanta pills are also available at a lower dosage, called Crisanta LS, for those who might have problems tolerating the high dose. You’ll take Crisanta pills for a set number of days in a row, then have a break, before starting your next strip.

With Crisanta, this is 21 days taking a pill, followed by a 7 day break. For Crisanta LS, this is 24 days taking a pill, followed by a four day break.

What are the active ingredients in Crisanta?

There are two active ingredients in Crisanta: ethinyl estradiol, a synthetic form of the hormone oestrogen, and drospirenone, a synthetic form of the hormone progesterone. The natural versions of these hormones rise and fall throughout the menstrual cycle, and this triggers actions like ovulation and the thickening of the lining of the womb.

So these two hormones in the pill override this cycle, and work in combination to stop the body doing what it needs to make itself ready for pregnancy.

How Crisanta works

There are three things the combined pill does to help stop you from becoming pregnant. The main function is that it stops ovulation, so you don’t release an egg ready to be fertilised by sperm.

Besides preventing the ovaries from releasing an egg, Crisanta also thickens the vaginal mucus in the neck of the womb. This protective barrier makes it difficult for the sperm to reach the egg.

Crisanta also thins the lining of the womb, preventing an egg from being able to settle there if it does become fertilised.

How to take Crisanta

Taking Crisanta is simple, but make sure you follow instructions given by your doctor when you do. If there’s anything you aren’t sure about, let us know.

  • Swallow it whole with water, once a day at the same time.
  • It can be taken with or without food.
  • If you’re taking Crisanta, you’ll take it for 21 days continuously. Then have a break for seven days, then start your next pack of 21 pills. This will make up the total of a typical 28 day cycle.
  • If you’re taking Crisanta LS which is the lower dosage, you’ll take it for 24 days followed by a four day break, before starting your next strip.
  • The blister pack that your Crisanta tablets come in should be marked by each day of the week, including the days when you should not take it.

What do I do if I forget a Crisanta pill?

If you forget to take a dosage, take it as soon as possible. Missed doses, particularly at the start of the course, can result in unwanted pregnancies. So, you may want to use another form of contraception for seven days until full protection is restored.

Can you get Crisanta in more than one dose?

There are two versions of Crisanta. The regular dose, called Crisanta, contains 0.03mg ethinyl estradiol (oestrogen) and 3mg drospirenone (progesterone). The lower dose, Crisanta LS, contains the same progesterone dose but only 0.02mg ethinyl estradiol. So LS is a better option if you’re slightly sensitive to oestrogen side effects.

We can help you find the dosage of Crisanta that works best for you.

FAQ: Crisanta

Have something specific you want to know about Crisanta? Search our info below, or ask our experts a question if you can’t find what you’re looking for.

What’s the difference between Crisanta and Crisanta LS?

Answer:
The main differences between Crisanta and Crisanta LS are the dose and number of pills in each pack. Crisanta LS (ethinyl estradiol) is a lower dose, and contains 24 pills per strip. Crisanta carries a regular dose and contains 21 pills per strip. There’s no difference in how effective they are protecting against pregnancy.

If you’ve used a regular or higher dose pill before and had side effects, you might be recommended Crisanta LS. It might also be better for you if you have medical conditions that mean you’re more likely to have side effects on higher doses of oestrogen.

Can Crisanta be used to treat other problems?

Answer:
Sometimes pills like Crisanta are helpful at controlling menstrual symptoms like heavy periods or period pain. They can also help your periods to be more regular, and make your cycle more predictable. If you’re looking for a pill that can help with these problems, it’s important to let your doctor know during your consultation so they can advise you on the best options.

Is Crisanta effective in controlling acne?

Answer:
Some women find that taking a combined pill like Crisanta is helpful at reducing acne and improving their complexion. This is mainly because the female sex hormones in the pill help to counteract the male (andorgen) hormones in the body which can cause acne.

Certain pills may be slightly more effective at doing this than others, but some research suggests there isn’t much difference. So if you’re looking for a pill that will double up as a contraception and an acne treatment, Crisanta may be able to help. But you should ask your doctor for more advice on this if you’re looking for a pill for this specific purpose.

Can Crisanta be used for PCOS?

Answer:
PCOS is a hormonal disorder which causes symptoms like release of excess male hormones, which results in various symptoms such as the growth of body hair.

Combined pills like Crisanta can help to treat these symptoms, according to some research. But it’s important to let your doctor know if you have PCOS so that they can prescribe a safe option for you.

Does Crisanta treat period problems?

Answer:
By changing the way the body builds and sheds the lining of the womb, combined pills like Crisanta can be helpful at relieving symptoms like period pain and heavy periods. When your uterine lining is shed, muscles contract to shake this lining free so it can exit the body through a menstrual bleed. By stopping your uterine lining from building up to this point in the first place, these muscles don’t need to flex and cramp as much, and this helps to reduce pain.

How effective is Crisanta?

Answer:
When taken as advised by the doctor, combined pills like Crisanta are more than 99% effective at preventing pregnancies. This means that for every 100 women who take them correctly, less than one will get pregnant over the course of a full year.

With typical use, the effectiveness of the pill is lower. So in 100 women using the pill inconsistently, 8 will become pregnant over the course of a year (92% effectiveness).

The best way to make sure Crisanta works is to follow the instructions as best as you can.

What are the alternatives to combined contraceptive pills?

Answer:
The progesterone-only pill or mini pill is an option for women who are sensitive to oestrogen (even at low doses) or have a higher risk of stroke due to medical conditions. It doesn’t contain oestrogen, so doesn’t give the same control over some menstrual symptoms, but it’s just as effective. So it’s important to let your doctor know about your medical history, so they can recommend the mini pill if it’s a better option for you.
