hello vujy
no need of protection with krimson
once you stop using u will not suffer from any side effects
long term use should better be avoided
if your only problem is irregular periods and contraception then go for a different contraceptive like femilon, novelon which have lesser side effects

Dermatologist Dr. Puvvula Kishore Kumar's  Response
Hi...dear user.,
Thanks for choosing HCM..,
It contains cytoproterone acetate blocks androgen also reduces androgen synthesis both by negative feedback effect on the hypothalamo pituitary ovarian system and by the inhibition of androgen synthesizing enzymes ..,
1) Ethinyloestrdiol in the combination inhibits ovulation and changes the cervical mucus and the endomerium rendering them unfavourable for sperm penetration and nidation of a fertilized ovum respectively..,So need not go for other protection..,
2) After stopping Krimson...side effects are also subsides..,
Main Side Efects....are Head ache, nausea, gastric upsets, vomitings, Breast tenderness and changes in Libido..,
3) Yes Krimson causes pigmentation.....That is Chloasma...
It is Exacerbated on exposure to Sun...,
