Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Based on the hormone content of the active ingredient, there are two types of contraceptive pills, namely: (1) a combination pill (consisting of 21 pills containing estrogen-progestin hormone combination and 7 placebo pills), and (2) minipil (consisting of 28 or 35 pills progestin). The birth control pill with the brand you mentioned is a type of contraceptive combination pill that contains estrogen (ethinylestradiol) and progestin (levonorgestrel) derivatives. This contraception consists of 21 pills in yellow which contain active substances, and 7 pills in white which are placebo (do not contain active substances).
The recommended time to start taking a combination pill is during menstruation (days 1-7, especially on the first day). The reason is that at this time it can be assured that the patient is not pregnant. This relates to contraindications to the use of combined pill contraception, one of which is pregnancy.
If you have already started using contraceptive pills, we recommend that you consult first with your doctor or obstetrician and gynecologist. If the doctor has confirmed that you are not pregnant, and no other contraindications are found, you can continue using the contraception.
In order for your contraceptive pill to be effective in preventing pregnancy, it is recommended that you start taking the yellow pill on the first day and then follow the arrow instructions printed on the back of the package to determine the order in which to use the next pill. Always take birth control pills at the same time regularly every day.
