Couldn't find what you looking for?


Its a low dose pill so will i be worried that i might get preggy even if im using althea?


Hi there

Althea is used for birth control. Since most of the hormonal contraceptive pills start giving you effective protection after about 2-3 weeks of regular use, if you become sexually active without protection during this time, then chances of pregnancy are possible, hence you are recommended to use back-up protection if having intercourse during the first 2-3 weeks after getting started with the birth control pill use. Continue to take the pills at scheduled time daily. Avoid missing active pill intake. Follow missed-pill-protocol if you miss taking active pill.

Good luck
