General Information on Taking Ogestrel

General Information on Your Ogestrel Dosage

Some considerations for people using Ogestrel include the following:
 
  • The medication comes in tablet form. It is taken by mouth once a day.
     
  • You can take Ogestrel with or without food. If the medication bothers your stomach, try taking it with food.
     
  • It is important to take Ogestrel every day and at the same time each day. Try to pick a time that is easy to remember, such as at bedtime or breakfast. If you have trouble remembering, please talk with your healthcare provider, as missing pills increases your risk of pregnancy.
     
  • Each pack of Ogestrel contains 28 pills. Make sure to take them in order. Once you have finished a pack, start a new one right away. You will probably start your period sometime during the last seven days of the pack.
     
  • Make sure you know exactly what to do if you miss any pills. In some circumstances, you may need to use a backup method of contraception, such as condoms, for a week.
     
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed.
     
  • If you are unsure about anything related to your Ogestrel dosage, please talk to your doctor, nurse, or pharmacist.
