Hi mga sis! Tanong ko lang kung over the counter pa rin ang althea? Actually 1 year and 4 months nakong gumagamit nito. But just last week, nung bibili nako ng bagong pack sa mercury drugstore (mrt ayala branch) eh hinihingan nako ng prescription! Naglabas daw kasi ng memo na kailangan prescribed na ang contraceptive pills sa kanila. Gulat na gulat ako and so worried kasi pano nako makakabili ng pills kung everytime na bibili ako eh kailangan na muna magpaprescribe?? Ganito na ba sa lahat ng drugstores? O natyempuhan ko lang na ganun dun??

Talagang iba iba ba laman ng pills, i started with Sat pill kasi Sat ang June 4... hmmm

@sis rasee16: sis I encountered the same scenario last week when I bought one pack ng althea from mercury drug (peoplesupport branch)..the same tayo ng dilemma since i've lost na the prescription ng OB ko..
think of me like an iceberg..you only see a little bit of the surface and everything else is hidden in the depths!!!

^in my case i need to wait for my period kahit pa it's on the 4th day of the 7th day rest period. before ka mag start on your new pack wait mo pa yung 1st day ng menstruation mo.
and I could not ask for more...

Im a user of Althea and I want to switch to Trust.

How should I take the first pill?
Will the effectiveness of the pill be lessened during the first week?

Thank you.

sis as far as i know, yung rule na you have to take the pill on your first day of menstruation is only for the first pack. after that, kailangan after 7 days na lagi. so you will always start your pill on the same day.

parang gusto ko nang magpalit ng OCP kase i've been taking althea for almost 4 years na. clear ang skin ko, lumaki rin ang boobs and syempre di ako nabubuntis. kayalang kahit anong pagpipigil ko sa pagkain, nalaki ng tinaba ko tapos ang puson ko, OA na sa laki. antagal ko nang pinagiisipan kung lilipat ako ng ibang brand. hay.

ganto lang yun mga sisses ha. para sa mga first time iinom ng althea at sa mga first time iinom ng pills ever sa buhay nila: make sure you take your first pill on the very first day of your period. magcondom on the first 7 days of taking the pill. if you forgot to take one pill, make sure inumin agad yung pill na nakalimutan. sabe dapat within 12 hours dapat mainom mo na yung nakalimutan mong pills pero kesehodang lagpas 12 hours na, inumin pa rin. in my case, usually dumadating ang mens ko on the 5th day of free pill. so kung tapos na ang 7 day free pill mo at hindi ka pa rin nagkakaron, go to an OB. also, bawal pagsabayin ang pills at yosi.

sa mga pang 2nd pack na ng althea or yungn mga dati nang umiinom ng pills: i wouldn't really know becasue hindi naman ako OB pero hindi na kami ng nagcocondom ni bf kahit nasa first 7 days ako. minsan nakakalimot ako magtake ng 2 pills pero lahat iniinom ko para safe once maalala ko. yung sa packm diba may naka-indicate dun na days kada pill, may one time na hindi ko nasunod yun pero hindi naman ako nabuntis.

negative effects sakin: migraine. panlalabo ng mata. WEIGHT GAIN! anlaki ng puson ko. decrease sexual urge.
positive effects: clear na ang acne ko, lumaki boobs, hindi ako napapraning na baka buntis ako.

ako naman share ko yung experience ko with althea. i've been on this peel for mga 3 years na. no weight gain or any negative side effects whatsoever. i shifted from diane to althea kasi sumasakit boobs ko sa diane and nagspotting ako. e since eto yung may same content ng diane, i switched to this brand. hiyangan lang talaga siguro sa pills. =)

hi mga sis..ask ko lang sana eto...

1. after daw ng pag take ko, antayin ko ang mens at pag 1st day of mens uminom po kaagad ako ng pills. tama po ba?
2. tsaka napapansin ko sis parang meron akong discharge na brownish.sabi ni OB first day na daw yun ng mens.
3. bale 2 box ko na.May 14 ang first day ko ng pills, June 3 ang last...nung 5 may brownish discharge ako, bale 1st day na daw yun ng mens?pero lumakas ang mens ko as in yung normal eh June 11 na.
4. nagsimula ako ng 2nd box, June 10-late na ako nakapunta ki OB kasi..kya lang nung June 25 nagkaroon ulit ako ng discharge until ngayon although nawawala din cya ng pakonti konti..normal mens po ba yun or discharge lang? kasi pag inaamoy ko, wala naman cya ng amoy na blood..

ngayon ang last day ko for 2nd box....

Gawin nating langit ang mundo MJ at kaya natin eto sa tulong ni Inno...
