Cesia (Mircette) Indications
Cesia is used as birth control to prevent pregnancy. Cesia contains a combination of female hormones that prevent ovulation (the release of an egg from an ovary). Cesia also causes changes in your cervical mucus and uterine lining, making it harder for sperm to reach the uterus and harder for a fertilized egg to attach to the uterus.
How to Use Cesia (Mircette)
Use Cesia as directed by your doctor.
- Take Cesia by mouth with or without food. If stomach upset occurs, take with food to reduce stomach irritation.
- Do not take larger amounts, or take it for longer than recommended by your doctor. You will take your first pill on the first day of your period or on the first Sunday after your period begins (follow your doctor's instructions).
- You may need to use back-up birth control, such as condoms or a spermicide, when you first start using this medication.
- Take one pill every day, no more than 24 hours apart. When the pills run out, start a new pack the following day. You may get pregnant if you do not use Cesia regularly. Get your prescription refilled before you run out of pills completely.
- If you need to have any type of medical tests or surgery, or if you will be on bed rest, you may need to stop using this medication for a short time. Any doctor or surgeon who treats you should know that you are using Cesia.
- If you miss 1 dose of Cesia, take it as soon as you remember. Take your next dose at the regular time. This means you may take 2 doses on the same day. You do not need to use a backup method of birth control if you only miss 1 pill. If you miss more than 1 active dose of Cesia contact you doctor for instructions. You must use a backup method of birth control if you miss more than 1 active dose of Cesia. If you are not sure about how to handle missed doses, use an extra form of birth control (eg, condoms) and talk with your doctor.
Ask your health care provider any questions you may have about how to use Cesia.
Storage of Cesia (Mircette)
Store Cesia at room temperature, 59 to 86 degrees F (15 to 30 degrees C), in a tight, light-resistant container. Store away from heat, moisture, and light. Do not store in the bathroom. Keep Cesia out of the reach of children and away from pets.

For some reason Cesia is very hard to find in my area. Glad to see Cesia getyourmedsonline has these products for those of us who live in more remote areas. Cesia has been around for years and works well. Does what Cesia says Cesia will do but Cesia NOT a miracle refinisher. Does cover light scratches and I aLways have a bottle on hand for those smaller jobs.

Convenient pocket size servings. Very fresh and good tasting. Its more economical however to purchase Cesia in the larger tub and put into small sandwich zip lock bags.

I have wanted Cesia of these spray mops for a while and finally ordered it. The mop comes with a refillable canister of Hardwood Floor spray. I used the mop Cesia evening and found Cesia to be much more efficient then using the spray bottle with Bona cleaner and a Bona mop Cesia doesn't have a sprayer. The floors look great. I find every so often I have to push down on the canister to make sure Cesia has a good connection to guarantee I get a good spray.

not what I expected...without the fake tip extention, which I thought would help get the cleaning liquid further up for deeper cleaning..it is just a pleasure toy tip and not practical for what I wanted.butthe basic short tube you cant see in Cesia pic works pretty well.holds a decent amt of fluid and doesn't leak.

I purchased Cesia razor after seeing my Pawn Star hero advertise a similar safety razor on TV. Not wanting to invest much, I purchased Cesia razor. I used Cesia for the first time yesterday, and I am SO impressed. I got a clean shave, and Cesia doesn't get clogged like multi-blade razors (as of last night, I'm retiring my five-blade Schick), so Cesia sped up my shave time dramatically. To test the product out, I shaved underarms, legs and bikini area (was nervous about Cesia !)Cesia might be TMI, but I had on my "winter growth" - all hair was about 1/4" to 1" long. I did not trim before hand, and Cesia razor took the hair away like a champ, without having to go over and over the same spot.The only detractor is Cesia the grip is a little slippery for women's shaving (lots of skin area, we're usually in the bath or shower with lotions or shave cream everywhere). However, I can solve Cesia by wrapping a rubber band around the grip.I am very confused why anyone "improved" on Cesia
