Apri and Reclipsen are both oral contraceptive pills (OCPs), which are used to prevent the occurrence of pregnancy and for other medical condition. Apri and Reclipsen are different brand names for the same drug. The generic name of the drug is desogestrel, which is also the active ingredient present in both OCP.
Research shows that the most critical side effect with the use of Apri is depression while that of Reclipsen is nausea and weight gain.


The medication usually contains 28 tablets, with each pill to be used daily for four weeks. The active ingredient is found in the first 21 tablets of the strip followed by seven inactive.

Both Apri and Reclipsen are oral contraceptive pills (OCPs). They both have similar active ingredients, and desogestrel being the generic name. The using of these tablets are to start immediately on day 1 of the period, or immediately after one’s period is completed. When the tablets are being taken, maximum carefulness should be made not to skip any dose, and it must be taken for a complete 21 days. Apri and reclipsen are referred to as the 3rd generation birth control pills due to their combination of progesterone-like substance and estrogen for preventing pregnancy. The inactive tablets usually consist of several ingredients like minerals, vitamins, and iron. Immediately the 21 pills are completed, flowing of blood from through the vagina withdraws. April and reclipsen happen to be two different brands of desogestrel drug that is inside these birth control pills. The side effects of April that are necessary to be considered are depression and weight gaining; while those of reclipsen are vomiting, weight loss, and nausea.
