I am on novelon tablet for irregular periods I've heard
Patient :I am on novelon tablet for irregular periods. I've heard that it could also be used as contraceptive. Right now I am on second day of the seven day gap after 21 days tablets. Is it possible to get pregnant during the 7 day gap period?
Thanks for query.
I understand your concern.
If you started the novelon contraceptive pills during your menstrual period and used all the 21 pills without missing, you can have contraceptive protection during the seven days of pill free week also.
If you missed any pill especially during the last one week of 21 pills, better to use an additional contraceptive method like condoms during this pill free week.
