can mercilon be taken continuously? I'm on yaz now, and I skip the inactive pills in the pack and only take them every fourth pack. My doctor told me this is totally safe, and she does it as well.
so does mercilon have a continuous dose of hormones, or is it like ortho tri cyclen where the dose fluctuates throughout the month?

Does anyone know if NuvaRing is available here? I've been using this for a couple years now, and was able to come with about 9 months worth, but really hate the idea of going back to the daily pill (all different kinds make me SICK) for 3-4 months before I go back to the states. Anyone know if I could even get a prescription for the ring?

UPDATE: was able to easily get a prescription for the Nuva Ring, but having a hard time finding it in a pharmacy.

Anyone in GWANGJU or nearby know of a pharmacy that stocks it and/or can get it??

Thanks!!

A lot of people have mentioned Mercilon but it didn't do anything for me... I had horrible PMS symptoms and bleeding...

I recommend Myvlar (pronounced My-bu-lah)~ it's the same concept as Mercilon and is made by Bayer-Schering. It's a similar price, too! Also, be careful about where you buy birth control because you'll find the price fluxuates from about 6000 won to 8500!

If you're in Seoul you can get pretty much any time of birth control including various pills, IUDs and shots.

Hi,
My partner and I are from the UK and going to Korea soon.
She uses the "Cerazette" contraceptive pill. Can anyone suggest, recommend or inform me of an equivalent available in Korea please?

Cheers,
Josh
