Althea Pill Thread 3 - Please read page 1 :)
« on: July 11, 2010, 09:02:26 AM »
The old thread reached the 30-page limit so I made a new one.
http://www.femalenetwork.com/girltalk/index.php/topic,200169.0.html


Oral Contraceptive: Althea stops ovulation, thins the lining of the uterus and thickens the cervical mucus. In combination, these actions prevent pregnancy.

*One should also use back-up contraception such as condoms if you have diarrhea or vomiting, or are taking a medication that could change the effectiveness of the birth control pill.

Good read to know more about contraceptives: http://www.womhealth.org.au/healthjourney/pill_myths_misconceptions.htm


Price as of May 30, 2012: P360 at Mercury Drug Stores

Frequently Asked Questions:

1. How Soon Do Birth Control Pills Work?
When taken as directed, birth control pills are usually effective the first month you begin taking them. To be safe, some doctors recommend the use of another form of birth control, such as condoms and foam, during the first month. After the first month, you can just use the pill for birth control.

2. For first timers when will be the safe period to have unprotected sex?
A first day start means you start taking the pill on the first day of your menstrual period. With a first day start, the pill may be effective as early as that first day, but waiting one full cycle before going without a backup is strongly advised.

3. Can you get pregnant during the week that you're under the 7-day pill free
Doesn't put you at higher risk of unintended pregnancy. If you're taking your birth control pills exactly as directed, they're 98 to 99 percent effective at preventing pregnancy.

4. What if I didn't take my pill on the exact time?
You want to do your level best to take your pill as close to the same time every day as is possible. To simplify that, what's important is not that you take the pill at the EXACT same time every day (as in, "Oh god! I usually take it at 10:32, and it's 11:03!"), but at the same time of day: for instance, always in the morning, or always before you go to bed.

Nako sis, crucial kasi ang first week and last weeks ng Pill. You should use extra precaution for the next 7 days i.e condom :)
