Customer Question

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Doxycyclne effect leaves your system within 3 days of stopping it.

For safety sake, you should still use condoms for a week while on birth control pills.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
