what should i do??by the way it's the first time i take this drug as i got married two months ago??please answer
If I were you, I would just give your docters office a call, and ask for his/her nurse, then just ask her if that is ok, if not, go ahead and make another appt. Personally I don't see where that would be a problem, but you always want to be sure. I know with other forms of birth control, you would need another dose since it was late, but just to be sure you might just wanna call your doc, or the nurse and ask! I wish you the best!!! :)
Talk with your doctor about the best time to start your pills. The first day of your menstrual period (bleeding) is known as "Day 1." Your doctor may have you start your pills on the first Sunday after your period starts or on Day 1 or Day 5 of your period. The pills should be taken approximately the same time every day, (e.g., with a meal or at bedtime).
It is a good idea to use a second method of birth control (e.g., latex condoms, spermicidal foam or gel) for the first 7 days of the first cycle of pill use to ensure prevention of pregnancy.
Many women experience spotting or light bleeding or may feel sick to their stomach during the first 3 months of taking the pill. If you do feel sick, do not stop taking the pill. The problem will usually go away. If it does not go away, check with your doctor or clinic.
You can keep taking them. Be sure to use a condom for the first 7 days. It will mess up your cycle a bit because you won't get your period until the inactive pills, which won't be when it would ordinarily come. The drs give instructions because we are to follow them.
