hi mga sis, it's my first time here in the forums. just wanted to ask some questions about althea.  ;D

it's my first time using pills, i started my 1st pill on july 15 last week. then nag do kami without condom na nitong july 23. it's okay na since it's the 8th day right?

and i understand na the 1st 7 days of using the pills we need extra protection, what about on the 7 days na pahinga sa pills? do we need to use condoms also?

Mga sis, I'm a newbie here. I have a question po. Can I still take Althea pill even if it's already my 3rd day of period? This is the first time I'm going to take the pill. It's just that I forgot to take it on my 1st day.. If not, do you have any suggestions of what I can do/take just for me to be safe by the 2nd week of August? Please let me know po. Thanks..

pasali dito. hay.. napapraning na ko kase im on my 6th pill free day and yet di pa ko nagkakaperiod. i was expecting my period yesterday pa. hopefully later or bukas magkaroon na ko. very slim chance naman siguro ang mabuntis while on pills diba? i didnt miss in taking it naman though there are times na late ako for a couple of hours pero di naman nag exceed ng 12 hours.. safe pa naman daw yun. pero baket kaya wala pa akong period?  ??? :-\

^^Do a pregnancy test first to make sure you are not pregnant.  If negative naman pregnancy test, you can take the pill.

^How long were you on pills?  Did you miss any pill?  If hindi ka naman nag-miss, don't panic.  Or para mawala anxiety mo, do a pregnancy test.

^sis relax ka lang. Sometimes yung masyado mo iniisip nakakastress so yun ang cause ng delay sa period. Basta follow lang yung time na tinatake mo and if in doubt use back up contraception.

Hello mga sis! I'm gonna ask something ulit. First take ko mamayang gabi yung pang-3rd pack ko ng Althea. Do we need to use protection pa ba ni BF on the first 7 days? Or kapag first pack user lang yung need ng protection? Please do help me mga sis! TIA :)

^^hehe thanks for the tip, sis.  ;D

^sis, ang alam ko protected ka na any day sa mga succeeding packs mo basta consistent and tama ang pag inom mo. first 7 days of your first pack ang hindi. ayun ang alam ko ha.. wala naman kase nakalagay sa instructions na gumamit ng protection on the first 7days of the succeeding packs eh sa unang pack lang. betteryet, ask your ob just to be sure.  :)

^safe lang yun sis. basta wag ka lang lalagpas ng 12 hours late.. pag ganun medyo mag decrease na yung effectivity ng pill. ako nga walang specific time kung uminom.. basta usually after lunch ang pag take ko.

Mga sis! Bakit ganun? Natural lang ba yung magka-brown mens when taking pills? I had brown mens kasi nung first day ng period ko pati nung last day which is kahapon. Bakit po kaya ganun?
