About low-dose birth control pill prescription
The contraceptive effect of low-dose birth control pills (OC: Oral Contraceptives) is almost 100 percent, and they are very safe. In the past, it was pointed out that the low-dose pill could increase breast cancer, but this has now been ruled out.
On the contrary, it is known to reduce the risk of ovarian cancer, uterine cancer, and colon cancer, and has been shown to be effective in treating dysmenorrhea, excessive menstruation, endometriosis, and irregular menstrual cycles. It also has no adverse effects on future pregnancies. In addition, there is no need to worry about the weight gain that is often heard about.
However, it does not mean that there are no side effects at all (the biggest concern is the risk of thrombosis), but please be assured that we prescribe it carefully, taking into consideration whether or not there are any contraindications (conditions under which it should not be taken).
Use effects other than birth control
The low-dose birth control pill was originally developed and used for contraceptive purposes, but it is also known to have a variety of secondary effects, and in recent years, it has been used in the following ways in addition to contraception.
Dysmenorrhea, Irregular menstruation, Excessive menstruation
It relieves menstrual cramps and regulates menstruation normally. It also reduces the amount of menstrual blood and improves anemia.
Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS)
It helps to regulate the body's condition before menstruation and provides mental stability.
It helps to balance hormones and improve acne.
Prevention of endometriosis, uterine cancer, and ovarian cancer
It prevents various gynecological diseases including cancer.
How to Take Low-Dose Birth Control Pills
"Basically, you take one pill a day at a specific time for three weeks, and the rest of the week is a rest period (21 pills type).
Depending on the type, there is also a ""28 pills type"" in which fake pills called a ""placebo pill"" are given to the patient to avoid forgetting to take the pill during the period when the pill is not taken and when it is resumed."
About Morning-After Pill Prescription
If you have had unprotected sex, or if the condom breaks, there is a method to prevent pregnancy called "emergency contraception".
The most common method is to take a contraceptive called the "morning-after pill" (emergency contraceptive).
The morning-after pill is a drug that contains progestin (levonorgestrel).
The required dosage of the pill is taken as soon as possible, but no later than 72 hours after unprotected sex has been taken.
As for why it is able to be an emergency contraceptive, it works differently depending on when the after-pill is taken in the patient's menstrual cycle.
For example, it can "suppress ovulation" or "prevent fertilization".
Since a pregnancy occurs when a fertilized egg implants in the uterine lining, the morning-after pill becomes ineffective once the egg has implanted and a pregnancy has occurred.
This is why, again, the morning-after pill must be taken within 72 hours (3 days) of unprotected sex.
Effects of the Morning-After Pill
While the morning-after pill may prevent pregnancy, it is not 100% effective.
It is said that even when taken correctly, it may not prevent pregnancy in about 2% of cases.
Even if the morning-after pill is used frequently, the pregnancy rate will be much higher than that of women who use the low-dose birth control pill continuously for contraceptive purposes.
Therefore, please understand that this method cannot be a substitute for the low-dose birth control pill.
Also, you will not able to know immediately whether it has really worked or not after taking the morning-after pill. You will only know if it has really worked when you start menstruating a few days or weeks later.
If your menstruation period is a week later than expected, or if you have any concerns, please contact us as soon as possible.
Safety of The Morning-After Pill
As for the safety of the morning-after pill, it has been in use around the world since the mid-1970s, and with a history of nearly half a century. Its safety has been established.
However, as with the low-dose birth control pill, there are still some people who should not take the morning-after pill or who need to use it with caution, so please do not hesitate to ask if you have any concerns.
As for the side effects of the morning-after pill, it's just a mild, temporary feeling of being a little sick.
As far as is known, there have been no reports of abnormal pregnancies or abnormalities in babies that cases where taking the after pill has no effect and a pregnancy occurs.
