can i take the trust pill after my menstruation bec as ive search in internet there says u must take the pill on the first day of mens but my firend told me after the mens so tell me pls im confuse bec i want to use trust pill so that i will not get pregnant. ## No, to first start oral contraceptives, you have to start them on the first day of your menstrual cycle. This helps allow your body to adjust to the hormones in the medication and starts the protection to prevent pregnancy, because you are not protected immediately, it takes time for the protection to take effect.

Livogen Tabs

I would like to know the after-effects of Livogen captabs, manufactured by Merck labs ## Livogen is a nutritional supplement that contains Ferrous Fumarate (Iron) and Folic Acid. Thus, it hasn't really been tested for side effects, as is done with actual prescription drugs, but the iron has been known to cause constipation and dark stool in some people that take it. Learn more Iron information here. Learn more folic acid information here. Has your doctor instructed you to take these? Iron is a supplement that you do have to be careful with, because too much of it can as dangerous as not enough.

That means that while it has been claimed to help with many conditions, it is not actually proven to do so.
