Birth Control Pills?
In the afternoon, I like to ask for the replacement of birth control pills, in the beginning I took the diane birth control pills. I wanted almost 1 year. I did not menstruate to take the birth control pills, can I replace the other birth control pills, for example, the birth control pill, FE, while I have been up to now? no menstruation, thank you.
Good morning, thanks for the question
Both the Diane Pill and the Fe mainstay birth control pill are hormonal contraceptives that contain a combination of the hormones estrogen and progesterone. Combination birth control pills work by suppressing ovulation, preventing implantation of the fetus, thickening cervical mucus, and disrupting the movement of cilia in the fallopian tubes. Combination birth control pills have good effectiveness if consumed regularly, do not interfere with sexual relations, menstruation becomes regular and easy to stop.
The difference is Diane birth control pills have advantages because they can overcome acne and smooth the skin by the action of the synthesis of the hormone progestin. The type of progestin in question is progestin cyproteron acetate (CPA). While the mainstay FP pill has the additional content of FE or iron which is good for mothers who are suspected of having anemia. The Fe content is only additional and does not affect the main work of birth control pills as a method of contraception.
You may change the type of birth control pill you are taking. It is best to start taking birth control pills during menstruation. However, if you have not menstruated so far, you should first spend a package of Diane birth control pills as they should regardless of whether your period is coming or not.
Take Diane birth control pills every day at the same time for 21 days, followed by stopping while taking the pills for the next 7 days or taking up empty pills. After that you can start to use a new birth control pill package. But you should not have sexual relations first for the first 7 days of taking these birth control pills. If you feel worried you should consult directly with the nearest midwife or doctor.
That's all, hope you can help. Wassalam.
