I am a 28 yr guy from India. I am getting married after two months.
An oral contraceptive pill called "Saheli" is available here for females. The pill claims to be the only pill which is steroid-free. I am planning that my future-wife could use it for the purpose of contraception.
I think this is not a once-a-day pill, rather once/twice-a-week pill.
I want to know when should she start taking this pill (I mean how many days before we have sex). Or is it something related to her menstrual cycle ? Please give a clear picture on this.
Also, if you have any other information w.r.t. "Saheli" contraceptive pill, please share with me.
Most pills are dependent on the girl's menstrual cycle as to when she should start it. It should come with detailed instructions telling you when you start and when it would be safe to have sex without the use of another form of birth control. For some pills, it's a week. For some, a month. It really just depends on the pill itself. Just refer to the pamphlet that comes with the pills and you'll be fine.
The Pill "Saheli" does not stop the ovulation of a woman, but prevents the fertilized egg from nesting in the mother's womb. Let me put this in different words: At the moment of conception a unique new human being comes into existence- one which has never been seen on the face of the earth..within hours of conception, this tiny baby sends out a hormonal message to its mummy saying: I'm here, mummy...please prepare the nest for me!. This hormonal message is suppressed by this drug. The child goes 'unheard' and an abortion takes place. A child is killed.
I am writing from Bangalore, my wife is using "Saheli" since last 5 years, it is a good medicine. But since there is no regular supplier available in Bangalore every time we are facing lots of problem to find the medicine. Due to non availability of the medicine every year she have to start the cycle newly. Even if I tried to purchase a full box of it, but 99% time it is not available, even if most of the medicine shops don't know the name of the medicine. Can you guide me a supplier/distributor in South Bangalore, where can I get it on regular basis.
