hi
instead of contraceptive pills i suggest u to go for some safe contraceptives method like intrauterine device like copper T,diaphragms,female/male condom,coitus interuptus,spermicides.
if ur not planning for futher child ask your husband to undergo vasectomy or you yourself go for tubal occlusion.
Most women have no side effects when taking the oral contraceptive pill, but some women do experience irregular periods, nausea, headaches, or weight change. Each type of oral contraceptive pill can affect each woman differently.
Combined oral contraceptive pills should be taken at the same time each day. If one or more tablets are forgotten for more than 12 hours, contraceptive protection will be reduced.
For the 21-pill packet, a pill is consumed daily for three weeks, followed by a week of no pills. For the 28-pill packet, 21 pills are taken, followed by week of placebo.you better consult gynaecologist before starting any medication.

About a year ago, I started seeing white spots on my legs...they have multiplied rapidly. The dermatologist diagnosed it as Vitiligo. I am currently applying Pigmento ointment (charak). I was sent Vitiligo 30 sublingual pills from Biogetica, as well as Pigmento Tablets. I am a breast cancer survivor (2), and have had reconstruction. I am 68, and 5 4 tall...weigh 154 lbs. I am really scared to ingest the pills for fear that it will do liver damage. One of the pills contain Arsen Sulph . How harmful is this? Please advise. Thank you. Juliet

Hi me and my bf had unprotected sex last month before my period and due to my work schedule I wasn t able to visit the clinic until the following Monday which was the fifth day afterwards after I took the pill I had sore breast, hot flashes and lower back pain then I got what I thought was my period which was extremely lighter then normal and brown. Usually my period last about 6or 7 days this last time it was about 4 to 5 pasty, dark brown, and some days wouldn t bleed at all then spot the next. I took a test (a cheap 99 cent store one) and it said negative. This month it s time for me to have my period again and I have no signs of it coming. No bloating, salt craving, mood swing, sharp pains...nothing. I m not pregnant right??
