I was just wondering, having spoken to a female friend about her going on the pill recently. Is the pill used simply as a prolonged protection against pregnancy... or to alleviate the pain of ovulation and periods and stuff, as I gather such experiences can be really horrible for girls. Sorry, I am just curious...
It tends to be used for both
Thanks guys, I was just wondering. Because if everyone finds periods painful, then surely the pill is a good idea:s??
The Pill can be used for many different 'things' - and each type of Pill has specific uses.
For example, the Pill I'm on is a contraceptive, regulates periods and helps to clear up skin.
It also made me really ill one day per month for the first six months or so and made me put on a bit of weight! x
The pill I take freshens my breath and is only two calories!
Sorry, couldn't resist.
To be honest, I was a bit dissappointed as the pill didn't really reduce my period pains all that much- probably because I told the doctor I was going on it for contraceptive reasons and so mine might not be the best for improving periods. I agree though, I like to have the control and to know when I'm due for sure, it certainly reduces worrying.
for period pain i went on the implant... why cause after being on it for say.... 3/4 months.. i had it put in back in september... ive had about 2 periods...
and thats it
i needed it for my exams.. being paralyzed in bed for 5 days a month doesn't make things easy!
plus implant... always there no need to think about it for 3 years unless im being prescribed meds that cancel it.
and as for prescribing from price... the implant is about £100 for one. they tell you before they set up for into to be inserted into your arm saying if you have it think about it baucase if you take it out after a week its a waste of £100
i got it for free
but it costs the nhs money or something
and the price is £100
mines great tho.. its totaly killed my periods.
i took a risk going on it cause as yousaid 3/4 week periods.
ive got the date on the card for mine to come out. ill probs get another put in after
