Oralcon contraceptive - missed pill

Hi There, I have been on Oralcon now for almost a year now. A couple days ago I was taking the red pills and I noticed I missed the last one. I took it 24 hours later with the first white one of the new pack. My question is will I be affected by missing one of the red pills? Will this decrease its effectiveness against preventing pregnancy? ## Hi, Megs! How are you? The red pills at the end of the pack are just placebo tablets that contain no active hormones, they are just meant to allow you to have a withdrawal bleed that week, so there is no harm in missing them. The sole reason they are included is to keep women in the habit of taking a pill each day, so they don't forget when it's time to start the new pack. So no, missing one or more of those ones doesn't matter, you do...

White oblong tablet BT

White oval tablet with one half letter B and other half letter T. The tablet can be split in half with a score line down the middle. ## What is the oblong BT pill? I found them in my daughter's room. ## Hard to say for sure. I couldn't find any exact match online but some research indicates it may be a contraceptive (birth control) pill manufactured in the UK. There is a similar variation (imprint/score) of homeopathic medicine made by Boericke & Tafel but I believe it is round not oblong. ## Thanks for the feedback. Someone else just wrote in a related thread that they have these same tablets, but believe them to be anabolic steroids (stanozolol or oxandrolone). Based on their message, it sounds to me like they're in England. And I also got the sense that they may not h...

oralcon pills stops periods?

I had an emergency pill about 3 weeks before i started using the Oralcon pills, and took my 1st pill on the 2nd day of my menstruation, although my periods were not normal because of the emergency pill, but i still had my periods at that time, with less bleeding than usual. I'm on my 3rd pack of the Oralcon pills now, and i never had any periods since my 2nd pack, even when I'm on the red pills. I'm worried now, i want my periods back. Is there any possibility that I'm pregnant? I never skipped any pills and i always took them at the same time everyday. Or its it because i started using the Oralcon pills with abnormal periods?

However, only your doctor can help you discover if what you're experiencing is due to the medication. Are you on any other medications?

Oralcon Contraceptive Pills FOR ACNE

does oralcon really help with decreasing acne? I'm only trying it out for that reason and I'd prefer not ot if it does not.
