Voice of the user
many users will no doubt find this to be very helpful
As I had already been taking the pill, and the pills that I bought in my home country (Canada) were running out, I decided to use this service. As you can order pills in your native language very easily, I think this is a very convenient service for foreign residents. It was easy to order the pills, so I'd like to recommend this service to my friends.

I was worried about going to the hospital during the pandemic, so I decided to try the online consultation at my home. The website was available in both Japanese and Vietnamese, and making the appointment was smooth and convenient.

I used to take the pill when I was in my home country, but I stopped taking it in Japan since I was a little anxious about going to the hospital. When I found out that I could receive online consultation, I decided to use YOLO PILL ONLINE. I was relieved to hear that there was an English interpreter!
French woman in her 30s
It takes 30 minutes to get to the hospital where my family doctor is. Since I found this to be inconvenient, I decided to try the online consultation through YOLO PILL ONLINE. As appointments can be made in English and is easy to understand, foreign residents who are not so good at Japanese can comfortably use this service.

What is the birth control pills (OC)?
The birth control pills is a fixed combination drug of the female hormones estrogen and progesterone. These pills have an ovulation suppressing effect and an endometrial growth suppressing effect. Not only are they useful for contraception, they can also improve symptoms such as menstrual pain, menorrhagia, irregular menstruation, PMS and acne.

How the birth control pills prevents pregnancy
The pill is made from types of female hormones. One is called progestin (progesterone), which helps to prepare the uterine lining for implantation of a fertilized egg and increases basal body temperature. Progesterone is also responsible for keeping the body hydrated, and it is said that the changes that occur in the body before menstruation are the result of progesterone. The other is called estrogen, which is characterized by its ability to protect the elasticity and moisture of the skin and hair, and by its effect on the independent nervous system, greatly affecting a woman's physical and mental health. When you take the pill, these female hormones cause a decrease in the amount of hormones that cause ovulation, and so ovulation does not occur. In addition to this, they also prevent sperm from entering the uterus and make it difficult for a fertilized egg to implant itself in the uterine lining.
The contraceptive effectiveness of the pill
The pill is a highly effective contraceptive. Looking at the failure rates of various contraceptive methods during the first year of intercourse using them, we can see that the failure rate of the pill is quite low at 0.3 to 9%, compared to 2 to 15% for condoms. It can be said that the pill is an extremely effective contraceptive as long as you don't forget to take it.Failure rate (pregnancy rate) of each pregnancy avoidance method during the first year of use
