Hi Tria,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

There are many types of contraception that can be used as an option for couples who intend to delay pregnancy, including IUD (intrauterine device) and birth control pills. Both types of contraception are very effective in preventing pregnancy, as long as they are used properly according to doctor's instructions.


The birth control pills you mentioned are the combination birth control pills. In each blister there are 21 active tablets with risk of the hormones estrogen and also synthetic progesterone (Drospirenone and Ethinylestradiol). These birth control pills prevent pregnancy by inhibiting ovulation (rupture of a mature egg), inhibiting fertilization (fertilization of an egg with a sperm cell), and also by inhibiting implantation (implantation of the fertilized product into the uterine wall).


One of the things that is often misinterpreted by the use of injection contraceptives is the way of consuming it according to the menstrual schedule. Even though this is actually not true. Birth control pills must be taken regularly at the same time every day, regardless of when your menstrual schedule lasts. If the birth control pills you are currently using are 21 pills in each blister, then after consuming all the pills in the blister, you are required to take 7 days off before switching to a new blister.


However, you also need to know that all types of birth control pills are not included in the free drug category. For that, before consuming it, you need to consult your doctor first. The doctor who will examine you in person will explain in detail how to take the proper birth control pill.


Hope this helps ..
