|I've had always trouble taking pills so I would always get liquid medicine. Before I got the BC pill, I was worried I wouldn't be able to swallow the pills, but when I saw them, I wasn't worried cause I saw that they were tiny. I figured I wouldn't have a problem swallowing them. Well I was wrong lol. I've been on BC for about 2 months now and it still takes about 5-10 minutes to swallow them. Sometimes it takes less time, sometimes it takes more time. I put the pill in my mouth at 9:00 each night and it takes a few minutes for me to swallow it. I eventually swallow it so it's good, but I have to let the pill melt a little in my mouth. That should be okay right??
Anyone have any tips?? Thanks.
|I don't see how it can be bad to let it melt in your mouth..It's not like it completely dissolves.
Yes, I do take it with a drink but it's still hard. It just won't go down right away.
|Ok, but I DO take it with a drink. ive heard that it doesnt matter if the pill melts a little in your mouth. any pills.|
In fact, many pills, not just birth control, have warnings on them not to split them or to let them dissolve, because for many medicines, the pill is designed to dissolve at a specific speed so it is absorbed in the right way.
|But I should be fully protected right?? I am trying to have sex, and my BF wears a condom|
