What Do I Need to Know About Birth Control Prescription Medication?
Birth control pills are usually up to 99% effective in preventing unwanted pregnancies. They don’t, however, protect against sexually transmitted diseases. For your health and safety, in new relationships we suggest using a barrier such as a condom alongside your prescription birth control medication.
Birth control pills also take time to become effective and are not completely reliable until you have been taking the course as recommended for seven days. In the meantime make sure you use other methods of birth control to protect yourself against unwanted pregnancy.
Some birth control pills can also fail when taken alongside other medication such as antibiotics. If in any doubt, make sure you use another form of contraception during these periods.
What are the Side Effects of Birth Control?
All birth control treatments have side effects as some mirror your body’s own hormones to fool your brain into believing you are already pregnant. Others make conditions in the cervix uninhabitable for sperm ensuring it doesn’t reach an egg to fertilise it.
The type of birth control you choose determines the most popular side effects you can expect. In the majority of cases, the side effects don’t last very long and dissipate as soon as your body becomes used to the birth control you take.
Side Effects of Birth Control Include:
- Weight Gain
- Mood Changes
- Skin Breakouts
There can also be an increased risk of blood clots with some types of pill and mini pill. It’s important to know your family history of health before choosing the birth control that is right for you.
Different Types of Birth Control Available on Prescription
There are many different types of birth control available allowing you to choose the right one for your body and situation. Here at Prescription Doctor we stock multiple including Yasmin, Microgynon, Marvelon and Cezerette.
The most popular birth control we stock is known as the mini pill or the combined pill. This combines the two hormones progesterone and oestrogen to prevent pregnancy. It is usually taken orally on a daily basis with a break of seven days when the period will occur. Along with providing effective contraception it is also used to regulate periods.
The other pill is for those sensitive to oestrogen and uses the single hormone of progesterone to prevent pregnancy. This is usually taken every day without a break. It can be used to alleviate symptoms of heavy periods and PMT.
