Taking trust pills on the wrong day

I'm on the 8th pill but I accidentally took the 14th pill... Is it ok to take the 9 pill on the next day and continue taking the pill or should I stop taking this pack of pill. ## Hello, Celle! How are you? Yes, you can just continue taking them, there is nothing specific in the tablets that makes it so they have to be taken on any certain day.

From Yasmin to oralcon

Hi , I've just started using Oralcon from using Yasmin. Is there a big difference between the two ? Because I am worried it might have a different effect as it is cheaper ? ## I switched from Yasmin to oralcon. Is it safe to just change or will it effect me hormonally? I've taken a brand new cycle now for my new month and would also like to know if I must consume all of the white tablets then break or consume the red tablets as well? ## No, it works the same and you should not have a problem making a clean switch from one to the other. Shell, the red tablets do not have any active ingredients, they are just reminder pills to try to keep women in the habit for taking a pill every day, so you can skip them, if you wish, it would be just like having a break week where you don't...

nexplanon & hypothyroidism?

I got my nexplanon implanted a year and a half ago soon after I received news that my thyroid was swollen and been diagnosed with hypothyroidism. There is not history of this in my family and have never had any problems like this, I'm still pretty young being 26. I've had 3 kids and my weight has always be stable until now. Hypothyroidism is ruining my life and I believe it might have something to do with the nexplanon because this all started when I got it implanted. Thoughts?? ## Hello, Holly! How are you? No, that's not a normal side effect of Nexplanon, as listed by the FDA. Typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, PMS-like symptoms and irregular bleeding.

Lo Loestrin FE and perimenopause

Last month, I started taking Lo Loestrin FE for perimenopause symptoms. I am 47 years old, My cycles were irregular, messy and for the last few years I have been depressed (off and on), fatigued, low libido, vaginal dryness, crampy, irritable, etc. (you know the drill :) . So, finally, I asked for a low dose combination pill to try and help. So far, the only relief is that my bleeding is 100% better - everything else is a huge mess. Have any of you experienced perimenopausal RELIEF using LoLoestrin? ## Hi Kim, I am on loestrin fe also for persistent bleeding, which it did help with but months later I developed depression and hot flashes and was also put on natural Estradiol which helped tremendously with all. Recently however I missed a loestrin fe and had a few days run of hot flashes,...

Advice on affordable LoLoestrin Fe

Hello! I’m a pharmacy technician trying to help a patient afford this and she’s tried many different insurance companies and coupons but the lowest she can get it is $141. Does anyone have any advice on the cheapest place to get it, good insurance that covers this, or good coupons? Anything would be greatly appreciated as she has tried so hard and I’m just starting to look around. Thanks I’m advance. ## Has she considered asking her doctor to prescribe a cheaper alternative? It might be cheaper for her to take a different one and just add an additional iron supplement, but only her doctor can help decide if that's safe for her to do. NDC code: 0430-0420 The FDA lists is typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, weight changes, mood changes...
