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.

Apri (Ethinyl Estradiol + Desogestrel) Contraceptive

I've been using the Apri pills for almost 2 months now. I had unprotected intercourse with my boyfriend, but I took my pill beforehand. The following day I forgot to take my pill so my boyfriend and I decided that I have to take the pill for safety measures. I took the pill an hour later than I normally do. Is it possible for me to be pregnant?

ovral g for regulating my periods

I have taken OVERAL G thrice in a day for 6 days, as suggested by my doc. Now i am taking the same tab once in a day, but i am experiencing a few drops of blood instead of my full period. Is it severe? What should i do? Please advise me. Would this medicine control my periods? HEARTLY THANKFUL TO YOU. ## Hello, Raina! How are you doing? Well, if your doctor had you taking 3 of them a day for awhile, some breakthrough bleeding should be expected, since this is a hormonal contraceptive. And yes, it should help regulate your cycles, but it may take a couple months for your body to get used to the medication. Are there any other questions or concerns? ## Hallo doctor.I m 32yrs old.

generic name contraceptives

LIst of generic name oral contraceptives ## There are many of these on the market, rather than selling them under the names of the hormonal ingredients, most companies just give them their own trade names, even though they are generics and generic priced. There are so many on the market, that I could not possibly provide you with a list of all of them. Some include products such as: Aless Tri-Phasal OvoPlex Apri and many others. Is there a particular class or group of ingredients you are looking for?
