The Rules For Taking Birth Control Pills Are Correct?
Hello, I last month took the Mycrogynon Pill on the 7th day of menstruation. I drink directly from beige pills instead of placebo pills. Now the beige-colored pills on the first strip were finished and finished on Wednesday. Do I have to give 7 days pause or immediately take the second strip because my placebo pills are all gone? If I drink the second strip of blue right away, I only take 2 placebo pills. Thank you in advance.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
There are 2 types of birth control pills, namely combination and non-combination birth control pills. The birth control pill that you mentioned belongs to the first type, because it contains a combination of synthetic hormones estrogen and progesterone. In each strip, this birth control pill consists of 28 pills, of which 21 pills are active pills containing hormones (which are beige), while the remaining 7 are placebo pills because they only contain flour (which is white). This placebo pill is made with the aim that the user is not oblivious to give a pause between the consumption of active pills per strip.
The rules for taking birth control pills should be discussed directly with a doctor or a gynecologist. Therefore, birth control pills do not belong to the class of over-the-counter medicines, so it is not appropriate to be consumed independently without doctor's supervision. Not only that, not everyone is also suitable to use birth control pills. Therefore, to prevent abuse and the risk of dangerous side effects, we are not authorized to explain in detail the procedures for taking the birth control pill in a free forum like this.
In general, birth control pills which amount to 28 days must be consumed in sequence every day at the same hour without oblivion, then continue directly to the next strip after the first strip runs out. However, for more details, regarding what steps you should take at this time, we recommend that you visit the nearest health facility directly.
I hope this helps.
