Low-Ogestrel Description

Low-Ogestrel contains two hormones that can help prevent a pregnancy. Norgestrel is a progestin and Ethinyl Estradiol is an estrogen. If you and your partner are not ready to expand your family, taking Low-Ogestrel can help to postpone the event until you are. These days it seems that motherhood is occurring later in life as some women are trying to get their careers established or making certain that the family finances are stable before raising children. If you are not convinced that having a baby is right for you, Low-Ogestrel provides a temporary solution to avoid a pregnancy until you are certain, instead of undergoing a surgical procedure that makes that decision for you.

How Taking Low Ogestrel Can Help Postpone Starting a Family

With the higher levels of progestin and estrogen from Low Ogestrel, you can trick your body into believing that you are already pregnant. This is how ovulation is suppressed to help prevent a pregnancy. To improve your chances of not becoming pregnant, Low-Ogestrel also causes your vaginal fluid to become thicker so it is more difficult for sperm to reach the egg and it changes your uterine lining so it is not able to support a fertilized egg and it simply passes from your body. Low-Ogestrel will not prevent you from getting or passing on HIV or other sexually transmitted diseases.

Other Uses for Low-Ogestrel

Besides the obvious use for Low-Ogestrel, your doctor may prescribe it to reduce painful periods, decrease the blood loss, and regulate your cycles. Many women take birth control medication if they have polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Without treatment, PCOS can cause irregular menstrual cycles, enlarged polycystic ovaries, and excess levels of male hormones that can cause abnormal hair growth, acne, or male-pattern baldness. If you have PCOS and are obese, you have an increased risk for hypertension, depression, sleep apnea, infertility, type 2 diabetes and other conditions.

Before You Start Taking Low-Ogestrel

If you are not certain that you are currently not pregnant, have your doctor test you before you start taking Low-Ogestrel as the hormones may be harmful to an unborn baby. Discuss other medical conditions or allergies you have and tell your doctor about any OTC or Rx drugs you take, including herbal remedies and dietary or vitamin supplements to be certain Low-Ogestrel is right for you.

Low-Ogestrel Precautions

Do not smoke while taking Low-Ogestrel. Besides the many health issues smokers are faced with, if you take Low-Ogestrel and continue to smoke, your chances increase for high blood pressure which could result in a heart attack or stroke. Recent studies have also pointed to estrogen as playing a role in lung cancer which could be a bigger role if you are a smoker.

Oral birth control is only as effective as the person taking it. Forgetting to take it or consistently taking it more than 24 hours apart can increase the risk of a pregnancy occurring. Even if you take it exactly as instructed, there is still about a 1% chance of becoming pregnant.
