How To Use The Pill
Doc I want to ask, I just started using the KB pill, but when I first used it I took the white pill (placebo) and at that time I wasn’t on my period. Is the wrong way to use birth control pills?
Thank you for the question.
Birth control pills contain synthetic hormones that can inhibit ovulation (removal of a mature egg from the ovary to the uterus), fertilization (fertilization of the egg by sperm cells), and implantation (implantation of fertilization into the uterine wall).
Although it can be obtained easily at the pharmacy, this birth control pill is actually not an over-the-counter medicine that can be used by anyone, especially without first seeing a doctor. It should be understood, that not all people in all conditions are right to take birth control pills. Incorrect consumption of birth control pills can risk making you experience side effects, such as allergies, abnormal vaginal bleeding, indigestion, and so on. In addition, the wrong way to use birth control pills also risks making you unplanned pregnancy.
Therefore, even in free forums like this we are unethical to explain clearly how to take the right birth control pill. Better, if you want to use contraception, first check yourself with a doctor or obstetrician. If you haven't had time to see a doctor, for example because of the current outbreak of COVID-19, it will be safer if you / your partner use mechanical contraception first, like condom or diaphragm to protect from pregnancy.
I hope this helps.
