Althea Side Effects

3 days since I started to take pills, but on the 3rd day I was groggy and I wanted to vomit. I think they may diagnose me with fatty liver if I continue drinking, but I don't know if i can keep taking this. ## Hello... I have read the side effects you say you are having and I think it might be fatty liver. I think you should have some tests run for this just to make sure since you might need a different medicine. ## Hi.

Effects of Althea Pill

Hi! I have pcos and my doctor advise me to use althea on the first day of my menstruation to regulate my mens. After 8 days of my last menstruation day, I bleed.

i stopped using Althea on my second pack becoz i can't bear anymore the constant hunger pangs, terrible dizziness, vomiting. And it made my body gained weight fast! It made my boobs much bigger too.

possible side effects of althea pills

I'm planning to use Althea for the first time. I will just turn 18 this coming July. Can you give me some easy instruction to follow? :) ## The best way to start is on the first day of your period, then it will become immediately effective at preventing pregnancy, unless your doctor instructs otherwise. Then take one tablet every day around the same time of day. The NIH lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, mood swings, PMS-like symptoms, and weight changes. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I'm asking if ok lng ba na magtake ng pills kahit hindi pa pregnant.

althea free pill

Hi! It's my first day for the 7 free pill days but I wasn't so sure if i'm protected w/o taking any pill so i took 1 pill for my next pack. Should i stop or continue taking the rest of the pills? If i'll stop when will I continue? Is it safe to just continue another pack? Thank u. ## Hello, Jane! How are you? Yes, you are still protected during the 7 free days, there is no need to take pills during that time period, according to NIH instructions. Usually, you should just continue on and start a new pack on the day your normally would, unless your doctor has instructed otherwise. The typical side effects of oral contraceptives may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, and spotting. Is there anything else I can help with? ## It's my 1st time to us... ...

Hi! I've been using althea pills for over a month and i just started my second set of pills yesterday after the 7 day break. I've noticed that i lost weight (which i'm not happy with since i'm trying to gain some) and my zits were more evident now than before i started taking pills. I'm not expecting to have smooth skin and gain weight immediately after a month of taking it, but is it normal to look worse than before? Is it safe to switch over to diane 35 as early as tomorrow even if i'm not yet done with my second pack? Or should i wait til i've taken them all up first? Please enlighten me, i'm a newbie. ## Hello, Jessica! How are you? It may take 3 months for such side effects to start wearing off, before you know if your skin will clear up and if your ... ...

When to take Althea?

Hi, it is saturday today and my first time to take pills. I decided to take pill with the mark of SAT because that's how i understand it. So I took the 7th pill coz it starts on SUN. though my mom argued with me saying that i should have just taken the sunday pill. did i do anything wrong? please help ## Your mother was correct, you should have started with the first tablet in the pack, and continued from there. The days marked are only to try to help women remember to take them, but the pills are the same, except for the period week. The NIH lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, irregular bleeding, and PMS-like symptoms. You can still take the remaining pills, before starting your period week, to get back on track, though. Is there anythi... ...

I forgot to take 1 pill in the first pack. I saw that I still had my last pill. It is possible to get pregnant? ## Yes, every time you miss a pill, there is a risk of pregnancy, according to NIH reports, though the risk is not very high, if you only missed one tablet. Its typical side effects are listed as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, and irregular bleeding. If you are concerned, there is never any harm in checking for pregnancy, to be sure. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I am on my 4th month of taking althea... After my 7 day rest, instead of taking it on my 8th day at 9pm i took it the next day at 9am? Is there any possibility of pregnancy? I had unprotected intercourse during my rest day...
