^sis are you taking it during the morning? Usually ganon. so better take it at night para hindi mo ma experience yung side effects.

^^sis ganon talaga, meron mens na brownish to reddish.

^yup, safe naman siya for those who aren't sexually active. its also great for the skin lalo na if you're prone to acne. though there are some who experience side effects so better observe if you start taking it. btw, not recommended siya for smokers.

yes po natapos ko naman ito.

Eto po nagkaroon na ako. hmm napansin ko mas malakas [textspeak!] mens ko nung hinde ako uminom ng pills. Kasi nung uminom ako ng pills naging 3 days lang tapos na mens ko tapos unti unti pa. Pero nung nagstop ako ang lakas tapos bumalik ako sa usual ko na 5 day period.

Hi, i'm taking this to regulate my period. I have a question. I was on my '7 pill free days' period and decided to stop taking it. so another 7 days after I kind of want to take it again. If I buy a new pack should I start over and take all the 21 pills. or should I continue where I left off? (so 21days - the 7 days na I stopped taking it)

Thanks!

just start new pack in your 1st day of period if mag change po kayo ng pills, pero mine i'm planning to change from althea to micrpill, lagi ko lang nakakalimutan dumaan sa OB ko kaya nasa 2mos na akong di naka pills, ngayon pang 3rd day ng mens ko sabi sa micropill pang 5th day i take, pero dapat pa rin ako mag punta sa OB ko to ask and get some advice mahirap na baka dun pa madale.. hehe

Hi mga SIS, is it safe even without withdrawal? First time ko to take Althea, recommended ng OB ko to regulate my mens.

Hi! I wanted to ask if ok naman yung althea pills? and when is it advisable to have unprotected sex?

 after nung first 7 days ng pagttake ng pills, on the 8th day puwde na magunprotected sex?

what about taking pills even if it's not your period. regular day lang. kasi i read from the leaflet ng althea na puwede naman, so is it ok? I'm confused kasi.  @_@

Hi just want to ask Althea users about althea, im trying to find out which to use among the other brands namely yasmin, diane 35 and althea.

im currently sexually active and been on withdrawal ever since. Luckily not getting preggy. I think meron din hormonal imbalance pero malalaman ko pa yan pag nakapagpacheck na sa OB.

Im also experiencing acne or a lot of pimples, and read here and in the other threads that it helps clear the skin up.

questions:

1. does it really clear the skin up? how long for someone who has slightly severe acne? imagine a number of big pimple and small one all over the face and red spotted skin blemishes.

2. Majority ba ng gumagamit ng althea tumataba?

3. pag nagstop ba babalik pimples ng mas malala?

hope someone replies! im new here in FN and nakaka addict dito haha

hi. newbie here.. i had taking althea for 1 year. my ob prescribed it to me since i have pcos. then after that i undergone ultrasound again to check if there's changes on my ovaries. suprizingly my ob said that my ovaries was almost as normal again. i was so happy. then she said to take a break from it then so that ndi nman mgdepends sa pills un cycle q.

i stop taking it for 3 mos. at first i dont notice a lot of changes except i lose weight like 15 lbs.so i was kind of happy in that part cause im obssess to become model-thin hehe, although di [textspeak!] [textspeak!] mxado 2mba sa althea.. then on the 3rd month i started to have pimples on face like what i had before taking althea. so f*ing annoying, my face was very clear na and also fair for a year thats why the pimples was very noticeable. hard to conceal.. i think bumabalik na nman pcos q, [textspeak!] my hormonal problem na naman [textspeak!]. im taking althea again. im on my 1st pill now..i hope the bumps will go away asap. un lang. bow. hehe
