What If I Miss a Dose of Philith?

Missing doses of Philith increases the risk of pregnancy. What you should do depends on how many tablets you have missed and where exactly you are in your cycle (see Philith Dosage). Refer to the patient information that comes with each package for more information on what to do, or consult your healthcare provider.
 

How Does This Contraceptive Work?

Philith is a combination oral contraceptive, which means that it contains two different types of hormones. It contains both an estrogen (ethinyl estradiol) and a progestin (norethindrone). Combined oral contraceptives are the most common type of birth control pill used today. In general, combined oral contraceptives are more effective than progestin-only birth control pills.
 
The hormones in Philith primarily prevent pregnancy by stopping ovulation (the maturation and release of eggs from the ovaries). However, it also prevents pregnancy in two other, minor ways. Philith changes the cervical mucus (the fluid of the cervix, which is the lower, narrow part of the uterus that is connected to the vagina), making it more difficult for sperm to enter the uterus. It also alters the lining of the uterus (the endometrium), making it less receptive to an embryo.
