Did you know that almost 66% of Most Unintended Pregnancies occur among WOMEN who were not using any contraceptive and what’s the result of this incidence; mistimed births, induced abortions and unwanted births.
Today, birth control is will known even though the church is against it but in this generation where unwanted pregnancy is everywhere; there should be a method on how we will stop it.
A lot of contraception – shaming stems from out conservative culture that contraception will “encourage” women to be promiscuous, instead of empowering her to care for her own sexual health. Often, women are embarrassed by their sexual partners who are uncomfortable talking about sexual health or talk it as a sign of promiscuity rather than common sense.
Dr. Anna Belen Ignacio-Alensuela, MD, FPOGS, Professor, FEU-NRMF Medical Center discussed the methods of Birth Control and their effects. What I don’t know about pill is that aside from it will prevent you from being pregnant (if your not ready to be a mom) is that there are good benefits of taking oral contraceptives like it will help you to regulate menstruation, fertility, menopause and provide clear skin.
This advocacy is launched to give women the correct information to help her live life without regrets and to enjoy life to the fullest.
For Minipil The ideal pill to use for first time users is the the one with the lowest dose. The brand Minipil, is a combination of 100 mcg Levonorgestrel + 20 mcg Ethinylestradiol. (“mcg” is micro gram) It is the lowest available in the market.
Other bands have 125 to 150 mcg of Levonorgestrel and 30mcg of Ethinylestradiol. It has to be noted that low dose does NOT mean reduced efficacy, but it will definitely reduce side effects, especially if it will be the first time to use the pill.
