Unwanted 21 Days: Review, Side Effects and Dose



Unwanted 21 Days is a regular contraceptive brand marketed in India by Mankind Pharma. Riding on the popularity of its emergency contraceptive pill Unwanted 72, Mankind launched a regular pill with similar name.


A user must know the difference between Unwanted 72 and Unwanted 21 Days. In fact, it is a very common mistake made by teenagers, who take pills without consulting any doctor or senior.


Unwanted 72, as mentioned above, is an emergency contraceptive pill. It is also termed as morning-after pill. When you have made unprotected physical relationship, you should take it within 72 hours to avoid unwanted pregnancy.


However, Unwanted 21 Days is a regular contraceptive pill. You are required to take it daily in a proper cycle to enjoy protection from unwanted pregnancy. It means, you need to take it even on those days when you are not making love. Remember this difference to avoid any confusion.


Unwanted 21 Days



Review of Unwanted 21Days


I had used Unwanted 21 Days with good result. There were few menstruation issues during first month, but everything became normal.


Unwanted 21 Days is a combined form of oral contraceptive pill. It contains Levonorgestrel and Ethinyloestradiol. These two are synthetic form of two main female hormones. It is a very safe method of avoiding pregnancy and, unlike emergency contraceptive pill; the result is also quite good. Further, Unwanted 21Days can be a very effective method for the treatment of many hormonal related issues faced by women, like pimple breakouts, PCOS and severe hormonal disturbances.


It can be taken without a doctor’s prescription. However, I would always suggest you to consult an OBGyne before starting it. Your doctor will suggest you the ideal and most suitable way for you to take it.




Side Effects of Unwanted 21 Days


There might be some side effects of taking this pill. Please note that these possible side effects generally happen with new users. Over time, everything will be normal. Following are possible side effects:


-         Breast Tenderness
-         Lower Stomach Pain
-         Irregular menstruation for two cycles
-         Sudden spotting/bleeding
-         Mild acne/pimples for few days


As I have mentioned above, these side effects will go away over time. For example, new user may face delay in menstruation/period. In fact, many women fear that they are pregnant because of this delay. In that situation, stay calm and keep taking pill at the scheduled time. Everything will be fine.



How to take Unwanted 21 Days


There are some rules for taking this pill. You should always follow the rule. If you follow them, you will remain away from side effects. It will also ensure maximum protection against unwanted pregnancy.


-         Start the pill on the first day of menstruation: When you are going to start Unwanted 21 Days, do it on the first day of menstruation. It will ensure better result. Take one pill daily for 21 days and then go for seven pill free days. Start the next pack on 8th day. Please note, for second and so on packs, you are not required to wait for the first day of menstruation. That is only applicable for the first pack/kit.


-         Always ensure to take pill daily at exactly the same time. Set a reminder on your mobile phone to help you.


-         Never miss any pill. If you have missed a pill, take that as soon as you remember. You can take two pills within 24 hours – in case you have missed. But, never take more than two pills within 24 hours.



If you have any question, please put that in the comment section. I will reply to the best of my knowledge.

    1. Hi, Shahid,

      It is not recommended to be taken by a 14 year old. First, it is not proper to be sexually active at this age. And then, users need to take it daily. For random physical relationship - that can be expected at this age - one should not use a contraceptive pill regularly.

      You can start it on any other day than the first day of menstruation. But, in that case you should follow the rule - take only one pill. Just stay away from making unprotected sex for the first seven days and then you will remain protected.

    1. Taking it during the breastfeeding or lactating stage may result in negative affect on the breast milk. The production of breast milk may go down.

      I would suggest you to go for injectible shot, or progesterone pill during the breastfeeding pill.

  10. Does i gain weight due to the use of this tablet. Because i have heard oral contraceptives induce weight gain.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Estrogen based regular contraceptive pill can lead to weight gain for short period of time. Please remember that it won't lead to permanent increase of your weight. That is why it is called 'water weight'. It is one of the many possible side effects of Unwanted 21 Days. Over time, you will become normal. Further, weight gain isn't seen with all users who take it.

    1. It should not be stopped in the middle of a pack. You must complete the entire set of 21 hormonal pills before discontinuing it. Only if pregnancy is found in the middle of a pack, doctors recommend immediate discontinuation of a regular contraceptive pill. Stopping in the middle of a pack can lead to many side effects.

    1. Yes, it is prescribed for regulating period. This is a standard medical practice throughout world. Estrogen, a female hormone, works wonderful in regulating period. It generally gives result within 3 packs. You should follow the prescription of your doctor.

    1. In this case, you can't use Unwanted 21 Days.

      And, she is not pregnant as she had menstruation after making unprotected sex. The vomiting tendencies might be because of some other issues. Ask her to come out of unnecessary stress.

    2. You can take pill at any time without any issue. I would just suggest you to fix a time with which you are comfortable as you will be required to take one pill daily at this time. It is because of this fact that 'before bedtime' is recommended. Not missing any pill and taking it daily at the same time are quite important to ensure optimum protection against unwanted pregnancy and keeping off side effects.
