Saheli © contains centchroman as its active ingredient. As advised in the prescription leaflet pdf Saheli is to be taken twice a week on fixed days for the first three months followed by one pill in a week thereafter. Saheli © is an original Indian product made in Lucknow. Saheli © is available only in India. Saheli © is a non hormonal oral contraceptive.
Saheli © being non hormonal does not cause nausea and stomach upset, which the hormonal contraceptive pills may cause.
All other oral contraceptive pills are hormonal pills. The oral contraceptive pills come in a pack of 21 or 28 tablets.
The patient information leaflet should be read and the pills should be taken accordingly. OC pills of some brands are to be taken starting from Day 1. Day 1 is the first 24 hours of your period.
OC pills of some brands are to be taken from Day 5.
All these (hormonal) Oral Contraceptives are to be taken on the same time each day.
The second packet of 21 days pills is to be taken 7 days after stopping the previous packet.
The second packet of 28 days pills is to be taken immediately after the first is over. The 28 days pills have actually 21 hormonal pills (similar to 21 day packet) and the other 7 are inert or inactive pills (placebo pills, reminder pills or ‘iron and folic acid’ containing pills).
Some Oral Contraceptives can be started from Sunday.
So it is important to read the information leaflet that comes along with the packet.

Rather than adding some medicine to counteract its side effect, it is recommended that Cerazette be stopped and a different oral contraceptive molecule used. Consider the option of barrier contraceptive or Intra Uterine Device that are effective.

Among the hormonal Oral Contraceptive pills Triquilar © has a more body friendly hormonal dosage.
The advantage of Oral Contraceptive pills is that they are the most effective (99%) among all reversible methods of birth control.
It is advised that for the first cycle (during first packet of pills) other methods to avoid pregnancy have to be used. To be on safer side I tell two cycles (two packets). Then onwards you can totally depend on the pills.
Who should not take Oral Contraceptive Pills?
Those who smoke should not take oral contraceptive pills.
