Hi. I am on gianvi (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) and I wasn't very great about taking them on time this month. Can I take a dosage of it as ec?

Hi. I am on gianvi (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) and I wasn't very great about taking them on time this month. Can I take a dosage of it as ec?

Yes: You can take 4 pills all at once. Then 4 more pills all at once 12 hours later. This dose will cause nausea so take a sea-sickness pill (like dramamine) 1 hour before taking each dose. You may want to think about using a different form of pregnancy prevention that requires less effort to remember it each day. The iuds or Nexplanon may be better choices. ...Read more

Borderline: You're really kind of on the borderline of whether you should see your doc or not. It's very normal to experience irregular and variable cycles for up to several months after stopping a hormonal contraceptive. If it would give you peace of mind, then maybe you should just make an appointment and see your doc. They may or may not want to do a blood test or ultrasound. They may tell you this is normal. ...Read more
