About the telemedicine

The low-dose pill is a fixed-dose combination of the female hormones estrogen and progesterone.
The low-dose pill has an ovulation suppressing effect and an endometrial growth-suppressing effect. Not only is it useful as a contraceptive, it can also improve symptoms such as menstrual pain, menorrhagia, irregular menstruation, PMS, and acne.
(Source:Dr. Ohinata)

The main benefits cited of the birth control pills other than contraception are:
① Reduction of menstrual pain
② Decrease in bleeding
③ Improvement of menstrual irregularities
④ Suppression of the progression of endometriosis
⑤ Decreased risk of uterine cancer, ovarian cancer, and colon cancer
⑥ Prevention of osteoperosis
⑦ Improvement of acne
⑧ Shortening of menstrual period
⑨ Improvement of premenstrual syndrome (premenstrual health issues)

(Source:Dr. Ohinata)

The contraceptive rate when taken correctly and at regular intervals every day is about 99.7%.

At YOLO PILL ONLINE, we carry Triquilar 28.

Taking the pill

Please start taking the pill on the third day of menstruation.
(Source:Dr. Ohinata)

It can be taken on an empty stomach. Ideally, it should be taken at the same time every day, so please try to take it at a regular time whenever possible.
(Source:Dr. Ohinata)

It is effective when taken every day. Please be sure to take it every day.
(Source:Dr. Ohinata)

Yes. In order for the pill to be effective, you need to take it correctly at a set time every day.
(Source:Dr. Ohinata)

If you forget to take it for one day, take one pill as soon as possible within 24 hours.
If you forget to take it for two or more days, take one pill as soon as possible and take the rest of the pills as scheduled. Use a condom or avoid sexual intercourse until you have taken the pill for at least seven consecutive days.
If you forget to take it for three or more days, you may experience pseudomenstrual bleeding. If this happens, please resume taking the pill after the bleeding has subsided.
(Source:Dr. Ohinata)

The contraceptive effect and the benefits of the pill will disappear and you will become able to get pregnant.
(Source:Dr. Ohinata)

Please inform your doctor of any medications you are currently taking at the time of your consultation as drug combinations may need to be considered.
(Source:Dr. Ohinata)

You can become pregnant again normally three months after you stop taking the pill.
Also, the fact that you have taken the pill in the past will not affect your possibility of pregnancy in the future.

Effects

Do not have sexual intercourse without contraceptives until after the 8th day. Use condoms or other contraceptives for the first 7 days of taking the pill.
(Source:Dr. Ohinata)

The menstrual cycle is the number of days between the first day of menstruation and the first day of your next menstruation, which is generally 25 to 38 days. While taking the pill, your cycle will be 28 days.
(Source:Dr. Ohinata)

It is possible to stop menstruation by continuing to take the pill, but the most common way to do this is to take the pill for 21 days, followed by a 7-day rest period, or to take placebo pills to make it a 28-day cycle. The pills we provide at YOLO PILL ONLINE are prescribed for a 28-day cycle, including 7 days' worth of placebo pills.

The pill is highly effective against menstrual pain. A 60% improvement can be expected after the second sheet and an 80% improvement after the third sheet. The longer you continue taking the pill, the more the symptoms will disappear. (In a small percentage of cases, symptoms do not improve even after continued use). It is also highly effective for premenstrual syndrome (irritability and nausea before menstruation).
*Effects may vary from person to person.
(Source:Dr. Ohinata)

Yes, you can. If you start taking the pill 3 weeks and 3 days before the day you want to avoid menstruation, you will have high rate of success(50%-80%) in shifting the menstrual period.
(Source:Dr. Ohinata)

Many clinical trials have been conducted overseas on the treatment of acne with the low-dose pill, and there is a high level of evidence that it improves the amount of acne, severity, and patient satisfaction. It is also highly effective when combined with anti-androgens.

About side effects

Minor side effects may occur in some people.
The main side effects are:
① Nausea
② Tightness in the breasts
③ Irregular bleeding
④ Headache
⑤ Lower abdominal pain
⑥ Swelling
The chance of these side effects occurring is very low.
Generally, symptoms will disappear after about three months of continuous usage, but if in the rare event that symptoms persist, please consult a physician.
(Source:Dr. Ohinata)

It shouldn't have any effect. When you stop taking the pill, you will become able to get pregnant again.
(Source:Dr. Ohinata)

The progesterone in the pill causes the body to retain water, and it is said that a small percentage of people experience swelling in the body. This is the reason why it is said that "the pill makes you gain weight." The swelling is a result of excess water, so if you stop taking the pill, your body will return to normal. In addition, the probability of swelling is much lower with the current version of the pill due to the reduction of progesterone.

Health issues after taking the pill

Typically, if there are no issues found in cervical cancer screening within a year, the bleeding will stop on its own if you continue taking the pill.
This varies from person to person, but in some cases it stops in as early as one month, and in others it can last for three to four months. If you are concerned, please consult your nearest gynecologist.
(Source:Dr. Ohinata)
