    non-prescription drugs judging by the state of the OP

    you start on the 1st day of your period and you are covered, is this the normal pill or the mimi

    Is it Microgynon?

    They work differently with everyone but you should start taking it as soon as you begin your period - you are protected straightaway.

    You can take 2 packs back to back, doesn't work for me, though - I would still come on.

    Christ woman! Speak to a doctor!

    Where did you buy the stuff, Toys R Us?

    Why don't you ask your GP / Pharmacist / Family planning clinic or whoever gave you the pill.

    Seeking medical advice on a deals forum is not a good idea and I hope if anyone gives you advice they know they could be liable if anything goes wrong because of their advice.

    Also in your box of pills will be a little leaflet telling you how to best use them, read that.

    the stupidity of people round these parts astounds..............

    and no does not equal KNOW

    Yes I must say your GP should have told you exactly what to do.As for taking Microgynon you cant take 2 packs back to back willy nilly-my GP said only 3 times a year if your going on holiday or something.....I dont really want to offer you any more advice, even though I do it on a daily basis as it is most odd that your GP hasn't explained.

    jeez I'd seek professional help before you have sex again or you'll be on here in a few weeks asking advice on an unplanned pregnancy. Speak to your gp, pharmicist or even read the instructions rather than sarky strangers like myself on the interweb for something as important as this.

    I am sure GP is you best bet. Or pick up a leaflet from your local doctors.

    2 months back to back works for me, only would do for holiday tho, don't think it does you any harm

    Amazing. OP puts Women only in title, so loadsa men, myself included, have to have a look don't we ? Had it been entitled "Monthly menstrual advice needed" not one of us would have dared open the thread.

    Thanks for your help, repped you dear xx

    kerri ignore the idiots....i understand y u are asking some questions here.

    i was never a fan of the pill...took it first time last year (did mini pill and didt suit me) and am back to other means; (ie 2 kids so lack of sex anyways!!) but its daunting when ur taking pill and u want some people with years of experience to explain it to u..... simply and easily and where u can ask questions.

    so everyone who is looking for a cheap thrill by taking the mick need to get a life and stop being so judgemental

    Would that not be a nurse in your local GP or a female doctor who would be able to talk you through it with a little more tact then a male GP?

    Thankyou so much, just wanted a bit of advice and reassurance thats all, i have sat with my gp and no what im doing. Just wanted a bit of advise. repped you xx

    Well my G/F is on the pill and she did started her first pill on her period. Then continues until she uses the packet up and has a week off (for you know what) then re-starts after. You can always take the pill without having breaks to. Its best to take it at a set time each day so if you start your first at midday, take the next one same time next day and so forth.

    Should i know this lol :oops:
