|Althea contraceptive pills|
Before I started using this, I first checked if I was pregnant (it’s routine) and when I found out it was negative, I started taking it on the first day of my menstrual cycle. I was really careful to take it everyday, on the same time to ensure its optimal effect - and that is not to get pregnant. This is because the blood level of the hormones contained in each tablet should be maintained in a steady level so to ensure that no ovulation will be able to take place.
The good thing about the blister pack of this oral contraceptive is that each tablet is marked by a number starting from numbers 1 to 28. I started taking tablet number one on the first day of my menstrual cycle, number two on the second day and so on.
I tried using other contraceptive pills before such as progesterone only pill, which only succeeded in making me chubbier, with heavier menses and inter menstrual bleeding.
But when I started using Althea, I noticed that I can now maintain my weight within normal limits, my menses are not so heavy that I only use 1-2 pads per day, and my skin became smoother to touch with almost no pimple outbreak. And you know what, my husband was able to notice it! I also noticed that my menstrual cramps are less intense, thus I can go one with my routine work without getting disturbed with the pain.
The best part is the price is not so expensive unlike other contraceptive pills with the same generic name. Thus I highly recommend this to women who want to have proper birth control and who want to feel great and look great at the same time.
