Ovral G is an oral contraceptive pill used by women to prevent pregnancy. Your chance of getting pregnant depends on how well you follow the directions for taking birth control pills. The better you follow the directions, the less chance you have of getting pregnant.
To achieve maximum contraceptive effectiveness, Ovral G must be taken exactly as directed and at intervals not exceeding 24 hours. Before starting the medication, it is important to consider the possibility of ovulation and conception. Follow your doctor’s advice while taking this oral contraceptive pill. Stick to the dosing regimen provided by your doctor. If spotting or breakthrough bleeding may occur, instruct the patients to continue the same dosing regimen. Patients are advised to consult the doctor if the bleeding is persistent.
Note - The possibility of ovulation and pregnancy increases with each missed tablet. If withdrawal bleeding does not occur, the possibility of pregnancy must be considered. If you do not stick to the dosing regimen as prescribed by your doctor, consider the probability of pregnancy at the time you missed a period and take appropriate measures. For additional information regarding the missed tablets, talk to your doctor about what to do if you miss pills.
If you develop gastrointestinal symptoms such as severe vomiting or diarrhoea, consider absorption may not be completed, and additional contraceptive measures should be taken. If you experience vomiting or diarrhoea within 3 to 4 hours after taking a tablet, consider this as a missed tablet.
Do not take Ovral G 0.5 if you:
— Had blood clots in the arms, legs, or eyes
— Have a certain heart valve problem
— A stroke
— Heart attack
— High blood pressure
— Have liver problems
— Have any unexplained vagina bleeding
— Have diabetes with eye, nerve, or blood vessel damage.
Do not take Ovral G if you smoke a cigarette and are over 35 years old. Smoking increases your risk of serious heart complications from hormonal birth control pills, including death from blood clots, stroke, and heart attack. The risk of cardiovascular side effects increases with age and the number of cigarettes you smoke.
Tell your doctor about your medicines, including prescriptions, vitamins, and herbal supplements.
