Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I asked a question to you this morning. You advised me not to take contraceptive pills since I have the DIU MIRENA. But I have another question. You are right, I have been feeling my body temperature too high, and my last period almosts last seven days. Here is my question: There are five pills left in the blister, and because of your advice I would like to quit right now from taking pills. Is it alright to stop now or should I finish the pills this month and then stop taking them?

Welcome to icliniq.com.

It is better to take the leftover pills for this time and then avoid taking any pill until you have Mirena (contraceptive pill).

Take care.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
