Oral contraceptive methods or birth control pills require discipline because they must be taken regularly every day, you must not forget to take birth control pills. Birth control pills are pills that contain hormones naturally produced by a woman's body, namely estrogen and progesterone, these two hormones regulating the menstrual cycle and hormonal balance in pregnancy. Birth control pills consist of 21 pills or 28 pills and must be taken every day at the same time, if you do not take birth control pills regularly you should use a condom as a protection.
And if you forget to take birth control pills, if it's less than 12 hours you can follow taking birth control pills on the same day, if you forget to take birth control pills for more than 24 hours it's okay to drink only the effectiveness will decrease, and if you forget to take birth control pills all day then you will drink 2 tablets at the same time.
