Oral hormonal contraception.

Dosage AMARANCE Ge Coated Tablet Box of 3 Pads of 21

Take regularly and without forgetting 1 tablet per day at the same time of the day, for 21 consecutive days with a stop of 7 days between each plate.

A withdrawal hemorrhage usually begins 2-3 days after the last tablet is taken and may continue after the beginning of the next pack.

The order of taking the tablets is as follows: 6 tablets bricks, then 5 white tablets, then 10 yellow tablets.

Beginning of mistreatment:

· Absence of hormonal contraception the previous month:

Take the first tablet on the first day of menstruation.

· Relay of another oral contraceptive estroprogestatif:

Take the first tablet the day after taking the last active tablet of the previous contraceptive or at the latest one day after the usual period of stopping the tablets.

· Relay of a progestative contraception (microdose pill, injectable, implant):

The relay microdosed contraception can be done at any time of the cycle and amarance must be started the day after the stop.

The relay of an implant is done the day of the withdrawal, and the relay of an injectable contraceptive is the day envisaged for the new injection. In all cases, it is recommended to use a complementary method of contraception during the first 7 days of treatment.

· After a first trimester pregnancy termination:

It is possible to start amarance immediately. It is not necessary to use a complementary method of contraception.

· After a second trimester delivery or pregnancy termination:

Since immediate postpartum is associated with an increased risk of thromboembolism, oral contraceptives should not be started less than 21 to 28 days after delivery or second trimester abortion. It is recommended to use a complementary method of mechanical contraception during the first 7 days of treatment. However, if sexual intercourse has already taken place, it should be ensured that there is no pregnancy before starting oral contraceptives or waiting for the first period.

· In case of breastfeeding: see section Pregnancy and breastfeeding .

Case of forgetfulness of one or more tablets.

Contraceptive security may be diminished in case of forgetfulness especially if this forgetfulness increases the time interval between the last tablet of the current wafer and the first tablet of the following wafer.

· If a tablet is missed within 12 hours of the usual time of taking, take the missed tablet immediately, and continue treatment normally by taking the next tablet at the usual time.

· If a tablet is missed more than 12 hours after the normal time, contraceptive security is no longer assured. Take the last missed tablet immediately, even if 2 tablets are to be taken on the same day, and continue oral contraceptive treatment until the end of the pack, using simultaneously another contraceptive method of the mechanical type (condoms, spermicides, .. .) for the next 7 days. If this 7-day period extends beyond the last tablet of the current tablet, the next pack should be started the day after the last tablet is taken. It is likely that no withdrawal haemorrhage will occur before the end of the second platelet. However, the patient may have spotting or bleeding.

If the patient does not have withdrawal bleeding at the end of the second platelet, the risk of pregnancy should be ruled out before continuing the treatment.

In case of gastrointestinal disorders:

The occurrence of intercurrent gastrointestinal disorders within 4 hours after taking, such as vomiting or severe diarrhea, may lead to a transient inefficiency of the method by reducing the absorption of hormones and impose the recommended course of action in case of forgetfulness less than 12 hours. An active tablet from another pack should be taken. If these episodes are repeated over several days, then it is necessary to combine another contraceptive method (condoms, spermicides, ...) until the recovery of the next pack.
