can you use birth control pills by chewing? tks

1 Answer:

good nilva,

whether or not a drug can be chewed depends on the production process of the drug. There are medications that are designed to be chewed, such as tablets for stomach acid, with the aim of reaching their active form once they are in the stomach. But there are also drugs that are designed to be swallowed directly, so that the outer layer will be destroyed by stomach acid, and the active form will be absorbed by the intestine and can work properly. Regarding birth control pills, there are birth control pills that are produced to be chewed, but it seems that these drugs are not commonly found in Indonesia. Most birth control pills are taken by swallowing them directly with water. This method of use has the advantage because in addition to being practical, this method ensures that all the drug enters the digestive tract, not like chewing drugs where some small particles may be left in the oral cavity so that the dose does not reach what it should be. In this regard, it is important for you to consult clearly with your gynecologist whether the birth control pills prescribed for you are swallowed directly or chewed first. Here we attach an article about birth control pills. Hope it is useful.
