Question: is it safe to take utovlan with the contraceptive implant to lighten my periods ?
Answered by Dr. Rakhi Tayal 7 minutes later
Brief Answer:
Yes. It can be used with implant.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
A contraceptive implant is associated with a light irregular bleeding for first few weeks. This usually subsides without any treatment. In case the bleeding is heavier then you can take Utovlan to control this bleeding. Do take the tablets in proper doses after consulting your gynecologist.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.

I am taking utovlan to delay my period but need to take the morning after pill today. What should I do?!

doctor1 MD

Dear Dr, I took the pill Utovlan last month to delay my period whilst I went on holiday. When I came home I had a lighter period than normal and unfortunately had to take the post coital pill after the condom split. I have since not had a period and am on day 37 of my cycle. I appreciate that combining both pills may delay my period but I haven t had my usual symptoms I have when I am due on. Any advice would be most appreciated. Thank you Joanne

Hi I am 48 years old and was prescribed utovlan approximately 2 weeks ago. Last Sunday I started itching intensely. It never dawned on me that there may be a connection and I took antihistamine tablets - which didn t help much. Today has been horrendous. I have felt like I could rip my skin off. Could there be a connection? Should I continue to take the tablets? I take 3 a day. Thanks for your assistance. Michelle
