A 22-year-old female asked:
what birth control pills are more effective? i took 2 tablets of postinor 2 at the same time, are there effects of that and will it be very effective?

It should work, but: Plan B, Postinor 2, and other brands of emergency contraceptive pills can alter the menstrual cycle for the cycle in which Plan B or Postinor 2 was taken, and sometimes the next month's cycle too. One should be sure to check a home pregnancy test about 3 weeks after sex, because emergency contraceptive pills work most of the time, but not all the time.

A 53-year-old member asked:
Why is my last week of birth control pills the same color?

28 pill pack: In a birth control pill pack that contains 28 pills the last seven pills are only there to help the woman remember, when to start the new pack. These pills do not contain active ingredients and are all of the same color.
