How long does Synphase take to work?
How effective is Synphase?
- 7 blue pills
- 9 white pills
- 5 more blue pills
- Firstly, take the pill marked ‘start here’ on the first day of your bleed.
- Take the pill at the same time every day, at a time that suits you or when you are most likely to remember to take it.
- Take a tablet every day, in the correct order, until you finish the strip.
- Once you have taken all 21 tablets in the blister strip, stop taking the pill for 7 days. You will probably have a bleed during these 7 days, like your period.
- After these 7 days, start the next strip, even if you are still bleeding. You will always start the next strip on the same day of the week.
- You are protected from pregnancy during the 7 day pill break if you start your next strip on time.
When should I start taking Synphase?
What happens if you miss a Synphase pill?
- Take it as soon as you remember even if it means taking 2 pills in the same day. Take your next one at your normal time.
- If you are over 12 hours late taking one or more of your pills, there is a chance you may not be protected from pregnancy. Take the last missed pill as soon as you remember and then carry on taking the rest as normal. Because you may not be protected from pregnancy for the next 7 days, you should either avoid having sex or use an extra method of contraception such as a condom. If you have had unprotected sex since your missed pill, you will need to use emergency contraception.
- If there are less than 7 pills left in your blister strip after you have missed a pill, you should complete the strip and then start the next strip straight away without a 7 day break.
