I was prescribed mononessa the day of my period. My question is, do I begin with the blue or green pill? (Unfortunately the doctor didn't walk me through and this is my first time taking this.) Also, if possible, can someone share their side effects from this? Thank you for your time.
Most birth control pills have many generics so I’m not sure of the color. There should be 28 pills, you would start with the color that has 21 pills of the same color, the other 7 are inactive pills and you will usually get a period while taking the inactive pills. Take the first active pill on the first day of your period & take at the same time everyday. Never skip any pills & continue onto the next pack without missing any pills, even if you are bleeding. As far as side effects I’ve tried 3 different pills which made me insanely depressed (which unfortunately can be common) it can take 3 months until your body adjusts. Many people can take hormones with no problems. Unfortunately my next try will not be a combo pill but a progesterone only pill... my doc doesn’t know what else to do! Again, the active pills are 21 of the same color. Good luck !
