Birth control pills can be one of the smartest efforts for couples who are delaying or preventing pregnancy. These birth control pills are composed of synthetic hormones that can prevent the release of eggs, fertilization of eggs by sperm cells, and implanting the results of fertilization in the uterine wall if fertilization occurs. With this method, birth control pills are very effective in preventing pregnancy, even reaching 99%.
Birth control pills have a short half-life. Therefore, to be able to produce optimal effects, these birth control pills need to be consumed regularly every day at the same hour. If you are going out of town, your wife can stop taking birth control pills when she is no longer in contact with you. However, in the future, if you want to see your wife again, your wife needs to take birth control pills at least 1 week before your arrival, so that after you come, she has been protected from the risk of pregnancy.
However, even though you can get it easily in drug stores, birth control pills are not included in the class of over-the-counter medicines. Therefore, if you want to start or stop consumption, your wife needs to see herself directly to the doctor or obstetrician. Incorrect consumption of birth control pills risks causing your wife to experience pregnancy, indigestion, abnormal vaginal bleeding, and many other complaints.
Hope this helps ...
