Gynera is a brand of oral contraceptives – otherwise known as “birth control pills” made by the pharmaceutical group Schering AG. It contains a formulation of Gestodene 0.075 mg and Ethinylestradiol 0.03 mg combined in a single pill.
Gynera comes in a 21 tablet blister pack format and retails for RM 24 per box. That slightly works out to RM 1 per day since oral contraceptives are meant to be taken on a daily basis, preferably at the same time each day. It’s cheaper than my daily benzodiazepine dose, that’s for sure. 😉
Gynera has a day-of-the-week foil printed at the back of the blister pack for an easy dosage guide. The official recommendation is three weeks on the pill and one week off, but some people I know have taken it for months without a break. *shrugs*
Personally, I have never menstruated while on Gynera. It effectively prevented ovulation and thus, unintended reproduction during sexual congress. I give it two thumbs up!
I’m male though, so perhaps Gynera really wasn’t necessary at all since I’ve never menstruated in my entire life. 😉
P/S – This is a gag post, for those who didn’t get it. Gynera seems to work for a lot of people though…
However, I did take one pill coz someone dared me to. 😉]]>
