21 years old planning to take contraceptive pills, what are things to keep in mind?
Hello, I am 21 years old female. I am about to use contraceptive pills for the first time and I want to ask you all about your experiences. Like what should I do and not? The side effects and does it has an age requirement before using it? Please let me know in the comments what are things to keep in mind? Thank you!
@laudia Hello, please consult a doctor before trying any pill. Combo pillMost OBGYNS will recommend the daily combination contraceptive pill. The combo pill has both estrogen and progestin that work in combination to prevent the ovaries from releasing eggs. This method only works if taken regularly. You might feel Breakthrough bleeding or spotting, Breast tenderness, Headaches, Nausea, and Bloating. Some side effects including nausea, headaches, breast tenderness, and breakthrough bleeding might decrease with continued use. Thanks!
