Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
There are 2 types of birth control pills, namely:
1. Birth control pills containing estrogen and progesterone.
2. Birth control pills that contain the hormone progesterone only. Used for mothers who are breastfeeding so that the amount of milk produced is maintained.
There are 2 forms of birth control pills, the 21 day pill and the 28 day pill. To reduce the possibility of forgetting to take pills, you should choose 28 days pills. The 28-day pill is taken continuously for 28 days, then immediately starts by starting the pill in a new package. The pill in the last 7 days is a pill that only contains placebo.
The choice of the first day of taking birth control pills is during menstruation, which is the first day until the seventh day of menstruation. To increase the success rate of contraception this pill should be used on the first day of menstruation. Can also be used on other days as long as it is definitely not pregnant, but must use other types of contraception (such as condoms) during sexual intercourse or not have sexual relations before passing through the fertile period to prevent failure due to drugs not working.
The first pill to take was a pill marked specifically, "start in the yellow part" by adjusting the current day. Then take the next pill in the direction of the arrow indicated on the package. The specific markings of each brand of birth control pills are not the same, in other brands the special marks may be green, so it is very necessary to read the rules of use first before taking them.
You can consult about this type of contraceptive pill with the nearest doctor. Thus you can also be directly informed about how to consume it, so that you are clearer and can ask questions directly about things you do not know. While you are starting pill contraception, you can use other types of contraception (such as condoms) to prevent pregnancy.
So much information from me, hopefully it helps.
