Hi Doctor. I am 23 years of age and have started taking Crisanta LS as an contraceptive as my doctor suggested to start it from the 2nd day of periods. But the pamphlet says it should be started from the 1st day. please suggest what needs to be done. Is it safe to have sex without condom??

Brief Answer: DETAILS ARE GIVEN BELOW. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for writing to us. CRISANTA LS contains drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol as ingredient. It should be taken ONCE daily from D1 of your menstrual cycle on schedule time for 24 days continuously with 4 days break. It will give more than 99.9% protection against unwanted pregnancy after 1-month used. You must do sex with CONDOM during 1st month of taking pills. After that, you can do unprotected sex (i.e without condom). Hope, it helps for your information. Kindly, close the discussion if you don't have any other query. Wish your good health and take care yourself. Regards, Dr Soumen For future query, you can directly approach me through WWW.WWWW.WW
