Does Irregular Birth Control Pills Prevent Pregnancy?
I just used the pill, before I drank regularly according to the instructions, but at that time there was a wrong order. I should have gone down to the right, instead I went down to the left, which should have been drunk when approaching the order for menstruation. Can it still be continued to drink? Or is it just drinking according to the day and sequence?
Thank you for the question.
Based on its contents, there are 2 types of birth control pills, namely combined birth control pills (which contain a combination of synthetic hormones estrogen and progesterone) and non-combinations (which contain only synthetic progesterone hormone only). Based on the number of pills in each blister, birth control pills also have 2 types, namely consisting of 21 pills in each blister (only consisting of active pills in which there are hormones), and consisting of 28 pills (consisting of 21 active pills and 7 placebo pills that only contain sugar or starch, do not contain hormones). Not only that, various factories can also produce birth control pills with a variety of different packages. Therefore, without knowing what type of birth control pill you are referring to, of course we are not authorized to explain what the proper method of consumption is.
To be able to work effectively to prevent pregnancy, birth control pills need to be taken in the right way. Not everyone is suitable to use birth control pills. Therefore, before using birth control pills, ideally you need to check yourself to the doctor. If the doctor considers that you are safe using birth control pills, then of course he will also explain what is the correct way to consume them. It is true that improper consumption of birth control pills risks reducing the effectiveness of synthetic hormones in them, and you have the potential to become pregnant if you have unprotected sex.
Therefore, you should visit the doctor or gynecologist directly at the nearest health facility in order to be given the best solution for your question.
I hope this helps.
