I took a Dabur Pudin Hara tablet (contains mentha oil and spearmint oil) along with diane 35, will this impact the effectiveness of my bc pill?
Mentha/mint oil: This application of oils will not have an impact on the effectiveness of an oral contraceptive. What does have an effect is "forgetfulness": for example, taking the next pill after the 7th day of the placebo pills, can cause a failure to inhibit ovulation, and pregnancy may be a consequence. I recommend taking the new first active pill on day 5 of the placebo, and stopping placebos then. ...Read more

Take them at night so the low dose will not tend to run out during the time of sleep and cause unpleasant dreams, etc.. ...Read more

Help! I have 3 pills of diane-35 left and I had u protected sex on jan 23, 2014. Does this mean im almost about to have my period? : (im stressing out.
I'm a bit confused.: If you have been on the diane-35 for long enough ; take it regularly - then your sexual intercourse was protected. This would mean the chance of becoming pregnant is low. Are you trying to say that you missed 3 days of your oral contraceptive? If that is the case - then you will have reduced protection against pregnancy. If your period is late take a home pregnancy test. Take care. ...Read more
