Daphne is an oral contraceptive especially made for lactating mothers. I used this pill after giving birth to my second son. It’s the safest contraceptive I know since I was afraid of IUD’s and I was not convinced with injectable contraception. It is also recommended to smoking women who need birth control. Each box comes with 28 super small white pills. Every pill is labeled with the names of the week. This can help mothers track their medication.

As instructed, I took the pill the same time everyday. If I took the first pill 11:30 am on a Wednesday, I have to take it the same time on a Thursday and all the succeeding days to come. But what if I forgot to take the medication? It’s okay, as long as it’s not more than six hours later. But as much as possible, keep taking the pill on the same time each day. I believe that the pill becomes more effective if taken that way. You can be consistent by setting your alarm every day.

The advantage of taking this drug, aside from it is safe and effective, is that it will increase your appetite. Though this might be a disadvantage to some moms, it’s not for me. As a nursing mom, it’s necessary to eat enough for you and for your baby. I gained weight but it’s fine since there’s always a way to get rid of those unwanted fats after a few months. When I finally recovered from giving birth, I started searching for home exercises I can do while the baby’s asleep. Daphne also treats acne. I noticed that my skin’s glow while taking the pill.

However, I noticed excessive hair loss and irregular menstrual intervals while using this pill. It delayed my normal menstrual cycle. These are some of the minor side effects. Luckily, I did not experience spotting. Some users even miss their monthly period the entire time of using the pill. But overall, there’s nothing to worry because you can always seek advice from OBGyne. I took it for several months before Inigo turns a year old. Daphne is available at Mercury for around 130 pesos. You can buy even without prescription from an ob-gynecologist.
