The Best Way To Take Birth Control Pills?
In the afternoon, I’m Titin, Dr. I’d like to ask if I had an injection once a month before and wanted to change to the microgynon contraceptive pill. The one I asked about started in blue, but when I’m menstruating, how do I drink it, doctor, because to take the pill, I always understand, thanks, doctor.
Thanks for the question. For information on how to take birth control pills, it's best to ask your midwife or obstetrician and gynecologist directly so that the information you receive is not wrong and if you have further questions you can immediately find out the answer.
In general, birth control pills can consist of a hormone pill and a blank pill or all hormone pills. Birth control pills should be started with hormone pills and then continued on an empty pill. This hormone pill should be taken on the first day of your period so that protection against pregnancy can occur immediately. If you take this pill for the first time on a day other than your period, then your partner is required to use a condom when having sex until you take 7 pills (or 7 consecutive days).
Microgynon is a birth control pill that contains two hormones, levonorgestrel and ethinyl estradiol. Microgynon consists of 21 hormone pills and 7 blank pills (placebo). You can take these pills starting from blue depending on the day you take them. Birth control pills must be taken every day at the same hours and taken continuously for 28 days according to the direction of the arrow on the medicine package. If you forget to take a pill, take the missed pill as soon as you remember it. If you just remember the next day, please follow the instructions on the sheet in the medicine package or consult a doctor immediately.
The use of birth control pills must be in accordance with the advice of the doctor, so you should still consult with your doctor before taking this birth control pill.
