@ sandyteen: you can engage in the "act" even if you're still on the 5th or 6th day of taking the pill. ang issue lang is, matagal ka na ba na nagtatake ng ocp? or this is your 1st time? If first time mo pa lang, shempre hindi pa magtatake effect yung gamot since pinoprogram pa niya yung body mo: ma-regulate cycle mo and contraceptive use as well. So dapat if you're doing it and you're a first time ocp user, better to have another option na mag-protection muna kayo ng partner mo. after a month or two, pwede ng walang protection. Remember, always try your best na uminom religiously ng pill para maging effective siya, yung sinasabi ngang 99% effectivity. Kapag naka-skip ka ng inom, or papalit palit ng oras ng inom, effectivity rate will fall to 96%.

If you're using long before pa, no problems naman. dapat. hehe!

re calendar method, hindi mo na kakailanganin yun. safe ka na once you're on ocp. been using one for almost 5yrs now.

Hope this one helps you. :)
I know, in time. :)

unica 518 thank you, first time user ako. paano yan maghihintay pa kami ng one month para mag do? eh anniversary pa naman namin this 17? e ayaw ko naman gumamit ng condom, masakit kasi minsan kaya calendar method lang talaga ang ginagawa namin. So this first month calendar method pa rin kami kahit naka OCP kami? pag nagstop ka magtake ng ocp true ba na mabilis kang mabubuntis?paano kung ayaw mo pa pwede ka bang bumalik sa calendar method katulad dati?

^ naku, hindi mo na icoconsider ang calendar method ngayon kasi you're starting to take an ocp. once na you're on it na, mag-aadjust and body mo and eventually, mag-iiba cycle mo. better use protection muna, let's be safe. :)

basta pag nag-stop or even pahinga, iba iba ang effects eh. like sa akin, nagpahinga ako for 6months, 5months din ako di nagkaron. kasi naman, to start with, irregular na talaga ako. so the moment na nagkaron na ako ng period ulit, nagtake na ako. kasi talagang it does regulate our menstrual cycles, aside being a contraceptive pill.

if ever you plan to stop na, punta muna sa OB.
I know, in time. :)

unica ah gaanun ba? sabi kasi nun derma ko pwede na daw mag do after taking the first tablet ng ocp kaso siempre derma siya hindi naman OB. Sabi nia kasi ipagtatake niya daw ako ng 1st day of period ko kaya safe naman mag do paranoid lang talaga ako, ayaw ko na magpa OB kasi nirerequire ako magpa transvaginal ultrasound e ayaw ko naman. Ano kaya ang pwede isabay sa OCP na contraceptive? pwede kayang injectible?

@sandyteen: bakit ka pa magiinjectible? please consult your gyne muna.. sobra sobra ka na sa protection. haha.. kiddin' aside, ocp kung ocp. kasi tinatarget niya pimples/hormonal imbalance mo and at the same time, contraceptive siya. so ok na yun. hintay ka lang ng one month para magtake effect yung gamot. ingat muna talaga sa ngayon.

I know, in time. :)

mga sis totoo ba na nakakapayat ang althea pills? payat na kasi ako takot ako baka lalo ako pumayat dito. nung gumamit ako ng diane di naman ako pumayat mejo nagkalaman naman. kaya lang i switch kasi nga ang mahal ng diane halos half the price yung althea eh. first pill ko palang today. medyo matagal din ako natigil sa pills.

for me, i think depende ang side effects sa user. Like ako, wala naman akong nakita or naramdaman na pwede kong sabihin na bad side effects.

HI. I just want to ask if my hair fall and a little bit of freckles on my cheeks are caused by OCP (Althea and Dianne 35). I've been taking althea for 5 months now and before (dianne35). di pa ko nagpa consult sa OB about this. Grabe kasi hair fall ko and naging visible yung freckles ko unlike before na di pa ko nag take ng pills. Nabasa ko sa leaflet ng althea na may adverse effects tulad nito. Para kasi ako lang yung nakaka experience nito e. thanks
and I could not ask for more...
