Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
You need to know beforehand, that hormonal contraception, such as injectable contraceptives and birth control pills are not classified as over-the-counter drugs, so they must be used under the supervision of a doctor.
The 1-month injectable contraceptive contains the active composition of synthetic estrogen and progesterone hormones which are injected into the body once every 4 weeks. In this way, the balance of reproductive hormones will be modified, the goal is to prevent fertilization of the egg by the sperm cell. In its work, injectable contraceptives can cause side effects, namely in the form of irregular menstruation. This condition can also be influenced by other factors, such as stress, fatigue, weight that is too fat, too thin, eating disorders, to the presence of a disease, such as ovarian cysts, thyroid gland disorders, and so on.
Before deciding to switch to birth control pills, you should first check with your doctor to be evaluated, whether you are the right candidate to use birth control pills. Because, there are several conditions where a woman is not advised to use birth control pills, for example in women with a history of blood clotting disorders, migraine sufferers who often repeat, people with heart disorders, uncontrolled hypertension, and so on.
If after being evaluated you are a candidate for the right birth control pill, then the doctor who examines you in person will also explain to you the correct way to take birth control pills. There is no requirement that birth control pills should be started during menstruation. Birth control pills can be started at any time as long as the rules are right.
Hope it helps ya..
