How To Take Lactation Birth Control Pills?
After giving birth, I took 3 months for the injection, but I continued with the oral contraceptive pill, before buying I had my period so how to consume it ??
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Lactation birth control pills are the preferred birth control pill or contraceptive pill for use in breastfeeding mothers. This is because the usual birth control pills contain the hormones estrogen and progestin, which this estrogen content can reduce milk production. Therefore, lactation birth control pills are made that contain only low doses of progestins which are safer for breastfeeding mothers and are considered capable of accelerating milk production.
Regarding how to consume it, it is actually more or less the same as the usual birth control pill. If you are exclusively breastfed, these pills can be taken about 6 weeks after delivery. However, if you have had your period, then this pill can be taken on the first day of menstruation and continued every day at the same time as directed on the package.
If you miss a dose, do not take two pills in one day. If less than 12 hours have passed, continue taking the missed pill. But if it is more than the same as 12 hours, then you must immediately take the forgotten pill, and continue with the correct pill even though the time is close. If you forget to take 2 pills, then take 2 pills you forgot at once, then continue 2 more pills the next day. If you forget 3 or more, then you should use a condom or avoid sexual intercourse and repeat it after your next menstrual period.
So, hopefully it answers your question.
