Hello,

if taken within 24 hours after intercourse, the effect of morning after pill is very reliable. Diane is not qualified to be used as morning after pill, so I would recommend to get one over the counter from pharmacy (levonorgestrel or ulipristal).

Kind regards,

Dr. N. Scheufele

Unfortunately im in the middle east and Levonorgestrel can be bought thru a prescription. For me to have a prescription i should be married. Unfortunately im not. Any alternatives?
Expert:  Dr Norbert Scheufele replied 1 month ago.

ok, although it´s not perfect you then can use diane taking 5 pills at once and 5 more 12 hours later.

Any side effects if i take 5 pills at the same time? Should it be diane-32 or diane-35?
Expert:  Dr Norbert Scheufele replied 1 month ago.

It could cause some nausea or abdominal pain, but nothing serious. Diane 35 would be ok.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Should i take it within 24 hours and with full stomach?
Expert:  Dr Norbert Scheufele replied 1 month ago.

Exactly, that would be the right way.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Alright. If i finished the 5 pills after 12 hours, should i continue taking diane?
Expert:  Dr Norbert Scheufele replied 1 month ago.

You should then take no more pills, await the start of the following bleeding and begin with a new blister at the first bleeding day.

Ps. If diane 35 is not available, diane 32 will do?

Still there doctor?

Yes, you can use this also, same dose.
