Safety Of The Consumption Of Birth Control Pills To Delay Menstruation?
I am 19 years old and not married. want to consume the pill to do pilgrimage for 11 days. I leave on February 5, 2019 and finish on February 15, 19. Can I take the pill? and how many rules to consume.
Birth control pills in addition to preventing pregnancy can also be used for other things, such as hormonal therapy or menstrual cycle regulation. Nurul should consult an obstetrician to use birth control pills outside of these designations, so that the advice given can be appropriate for Nurul. Some information is needed, for example, when was Nurul's last menstruation and her menstrual cycle.
Birth control pills that are commonly sold usually contain 21 hormone pills (usually yellow) and 7 placebo pills / empty (white). To prevent pregnancy, birth control pills are best taken during menstruation, one tablet every day until 21 hormone pills run out, then proceed to the empty pill. Usually when taking 2-3 days empty pills, menstruation occurs. Then proceed to the next package after the empty pill has run out, starting from the hormone pill again.
To postpone menstruation, the method is almost the same, which is different when the hormone pills run out, not proceeding to a placebo but instead prolongs taking the hormone pill from the next package. At least this birth control pill is taken from 1 week before menstruation to prevent menstruation from happening. If Nurul drinks it too close to the menstrual date, chances are this method does not work and requires other drugs. Bearing in mind that Nurul is leaving soon and not taking any medicine, consult the obstetrician to get the right treatment.
