ako naman exluton yung pills ko after ko manganak..for breastfeeding mom
2years din ako uminom nun.side effect sa akin every 2mos ako nagkaka mens.sabi ni OB(Delos Santos Hospital) ganun daw talaga and okay lang daw..hindi naman sumasakit ulo ko or nagkaroon ng pimples etc..

Then nung february this year nag Annual Physical Exam kami, ayun sa result ko meron ako internal bleeding..so nataranta syempre ako kasi nung niresearched ko sya major caused is pills that might lead to ovarian chuva etc na sakit.basta sa ovary hehe..saka parang masakit yung procedure na gagawin.

ngpacheckup ako sa OBGyne sa St. Lukes, yun nga normal daw yun sa nagpipills.pero natakot pa din ako.tumigil na ako sa pills pagkatapos nun.ayoko magkaroon ng cancer at kung ano-anong sakit in the future :(

Calendar Method kami ngayon ;D

For me, hiyang ang Althea. No PMS, no dysmenorrhea, plus super less pimples.  ;)

It takes about 4 years and above to get the cancer caused by hormonal contraceptives like Althea.  Totoo na mas kakaunti na ngayon ang side effects ng pills.  Konti na lang kasi ang content ng pill na nagko-cause ng side effects.  Pero ito rin ang content na pang-prevent ng fertilization/conception.  Ang totoo, hindi na napipigilian ang pagbubuntis.  Nabubuo ang isang buhay na baby na tumatagal ng mga 6 days. May nakahalo sa Althea at iba pang contraceptive na kemical na paninipisin/patutuyuin ang matris..  Hindi makakakapit ang baby, maaabort siya....mamamatay.

Althea, "thins the lining of the Uterus" - confirmed na abortifacient siya.  Usually kasi, kumakapal, naiipon ang blood sa walls ng Uterus or Womb.  Pagdating doon ng baby magi-implant siya at bubuhayin siya ng thick blood na iyon.  Dahil pintutuyo ng Althea, hindi makakakapit si baby.

Heto pa ang na-research ko about Althea.

Side Effects:  Some women may experience side effects eg, nausea, vomiting, chloasma (melasma) and other skin or hair changes, headache, water retention, slight weight change, breast tenderness and changes in libido. Menstrual irregularities eg, spotting, breakthrough bleeding or amenorrhea can occur during its use. Most of these side effects are mild and usually disappear after a few months of contraceptive use.

Mechanism of Action: Oral contraceptive.
Althea is a combined low-dose oral contraceptive pill with antiandrogenic properties. Each tablet contains cyproterone acetate, a progesterone with antiandrogenic and progestogenic properties and ethinyl estradiol, an estrogen.

Oral Contraceptive: Althea stops ovulation, thins the lining of the uterus and thickens the cervical mucus. In combination, these actions prevent pregnancy.

Antiandrogen: Althea contains cyproterone acetate that works as an antiandrogen. It competes at the receptor sites with androgens and reduces their effects. Cyproterone acetate inhibits the influence of the androgens produced in women. Althea reduces the development of acne and seborrhea. It heals existing acne efflorescence after 3-4 months therapy. It also reduces the greasiness of the hair and skin. When cyproterone acetate is given in combination with ethinyl estradiol, it is likely to reduce hair growth, lighten the hair color and decrease the hair thickness in hirsutic areas.

Sakin dati Diane 35 wala naman side effects akong naramdaman maganda pa nga dahil lagi akong blooming and napansin ni hubby na lumaki boobies ko kaya lang nagswitch ako sa Althea kasi mas gusto ko makatipid kaso grabe ang side effects sakin as in para kong malulumpo sa sobrang sakit ng mga legs at arms ko hindi ako makatayo especially sa morning pagkagising , so nagdecide ako na back to diane na ko so far so good di na ulit sumasakit ang legs and arms ko.

Nakaka-Cancer ang Contraceptives dahil dinadagdagan nito ang hormones na Estrogen at Progesterone na normally present sa body.  Check the product insert/literature of your brand of birth control pills, injectable, patch or ring.  Kahit pagandahin ang pangalan ng chemical, aaminin din nila sa bandang huli ng text na ito ay variant ng Synthetic Estrogen o Progestogen/Progestin.

Here are the results of studies for 2012!  Be sure to regularly have a regular examination.  Pakisabay na rin ang check for Gall Bladder Stones and other illnesses.

You're right about the pills. I've been taking pills for 5 to 6 yrs and no side effects were felt, but that's what I thought.. not until after 6 yrs, nakaroon ng stones sa gall bladder ko at kailangan tanggalin kaagad due to complications. As per the Dr, taking pills is one of the reasons daw kaya I stopped it at once. We are now using natural method for 2 yrs na so ok naman. hindi pa ako nabubuntis :D

Suspicious ito.  Parang yung nangyayari sa ibang forum na may mga kumikita para pagandahin ang image ng product...pero motivated ng income...since they are paid to do this by companies and multinational corporations.::
