Also known as oral contraceptives, birth control pills are highly effective oral medications that use hormones to prevent pregnancy. There are two main types of birth control pills: one with estrogen and progestin (also known as the combination pill) and one with just progestin. The two main ways they prevent pregnancy are: 1) The hormones thicken the cervical mucous, which keeps sperm from entering the uterus on their way to the egg; and 2) By maintaining a level of hormone in the blood stream that prevents the ...Read more
I have had unprotected sex and wondering if I can take the combined pill microgynon 30 as an emergency contraceptive pill?
Emergency contracept: In theory yes - since they both contain 150micrograms of Levonorgestrel with the microgynon also containing 30 mcg of ethynil estradiol. However, the side effect profile will be different than Plan B since there is the estradiol component. In a pinch you could use the microgynon but I know of no studies showing the efficacy. You need to use it before 72 hours. Good luck. ...Read more

If I'm taking the Microgynon contraceptive pill, is it okay if I took the Fat Metaboliser Diet Pill from Holland and Barrett along with it?

Diet pills may have severe side effects, plus when you stop them and your behavior has not changed, you will be right back where you started. ...Read more

Irregular pill bleed: This pill has the same hormone dose in each pill, 30 mcg of the estrogen, so usually this recipe does not have a lot of irregular bleeding if you are taking it regularly for 21 days with a 7 day period week.

Stemetil and the OCP: Unlikely it would reduce the effectiveness of the pill, but it is metabolized by the liver which can make the liver metabolize pill hormones faster, so to be absolutely safe use a pill hormone recipe that is higher dose or does not need the liver to create the active form of the progestin, such as levonorgestrel, and you could consider continuous use of the hormones. Talk to your doctor as well. ...Read more
Work to do what??: Get you high? It will do that whether you are on a contraceptive or not, and there is no evidence that ecstacy and ocp's have any drug interactions, but taking contraceptives regularly is critical for them to work effectively, and use of mdma is not likely to help you remember to take your medications. Forms of mdma like "molly" have been associated with deaths and serious illness- get some help. ...Read more
