The Pill

Not sure how to take the Pill? This all depends on what kind of pill your doc prescribes. Most pills come in either 28-day packs or 21-day packs. For 21-day packs, you’d take one pill a day for three weeks in a row and the fourth week you don’t have to take any pills. With 28-day packs, you’d do the same except the fourth week you’d take a week of “reminder” pills, also known as placebos, which don’t have any hormones in them.

    IM ON BIRTH CONTROL! lol obviously, I love it. I was on Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo (big name lol) and I would always get nauseous whenever I started a new pill pack. but my college clinic put me on Aviane and now I have no symptoms at all. so it takes some weeding out to find which brands work best for you.

    If you’re under 16 do your parents still have to know if you go to your doctor in the UK?
