Can You Take The KB Pill And The Emergency Pill At The Same Time?
, I just used the mainstay combination KB pills for 3 days, then I had sex .. because I didn’t want to get pregnant, then I bought blue circle microgynon pills as an emergency. for tonight still consumed? Or stopped until I take the second dose of microgynon?
Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Birth control pills are a type of postponement / contraceptive method that uses hormones to work. The hormones released by birth control pills interfere with the release of eggs and block the passage of sperm cells making fertilization difficult.
The effectiveness of this contraceptive method ranges from 92% -99% and works optimally after about 7 days of use. So if you are new to birth control pills, you should use another contraceptive method for the first 7 days if you want to have sex.
However the drug you mention is emergency contraception and is not meant to work for something like this. Emergency contraceptives contain hormones and are only used occasionally in couples having unprotected sex. You should not use it for days in a row or take 4 tablets at a time, because you can experience hormonal imbalance.
Now in your case, for what you are already consuming, then leave it like that, and for birth control pills keep taking it as usual. If in the next few days you still want to have sex, it's best if your husband uses a condom. So, hopefully it answers your question.
