Sunday STart

I just got prescribed low-ogestrel a couple days ago in the mdidle of my period. The directions explain that you can start on the sunday after your period starts, but if you got your period on a sunday, you should start it that same day. I got my period on sunday, does that mean I have to wait another month to take my first pill, or can I take it this sunday (tomorrow)?? ## If you started your period on a Sunday, you should have taken it that same day to start the pack.

Breakthrough Bleeding

I used to take Low-Ogestrel as my birth control but then switched to the Brazilian equivalent of Femodene (it is called Diminut there but the hormone levels are the same as that of Femodene).

to identify a pill with 847 imprinted

I found a very small white, round pill. One side says Watson & the other has 847 imprinted. Can you identify it?

This medication also changes your cervical mucus and uterine lining, making it harder for sperm to reach the uterus and harder for a fertilized egg to attach to the uterus. Do you have any more questions or information to add? Please post back if you do.
