More information about Isibloom
Isibloom is an FDA-approved combination birth control pill (commonly known as "the pill"). It contains synthetic versions of estrogen and progestin as 0.03 mg of ethinyl estradiol and 0.15 mg of desogestrel.
In addition to being an effective and reversible method of contraception, Isibloom can help with premenstrual symptoms, regulate your periods, and make them lighter and less painful.
You can order Isibloom and Apri, an equivalent alternative which contains the same active ingredients, online from SpeedyHealth.
Hormonal changes throughout your monthly cycle trigger ovulation and other bodily changes, which make it easier for you to get pregnant. Isibloom uses desogestrel and ethinyl estradiol to manage these changes in a way that makes it more difficult for you to get pregnant.
Isibloom prevents ovulation so that eggs cannot be fertilized, thickens mucus in the womb, which makes it more difficult for sperm to reach an egg, and thins the womb lining so that a fertilized egg would not be able to implant.
Isibloom contains 21 orange active pills containing ethinyl estradiol and desogestrel and 7 green placebo pills which do not contain hormones. Take one active tablet daily for 21 days, followed by the inactive tablets. During this time you may experience breakthrough bleeding that is similar to a period. After that, begin taking the next pack. You should take your pill at the same time every day.
When first starting Isibloom, you should take the first pill on the first day of your period. If you are unable to do this, you can begin on the Sunday after your cycle, but you should use another form of birth control, such as a condom, for the first seven days in addition to the pill to prevent pregnancy. You should store these tablets at room temperature.
If you miss one of the active, orange pills, take it as soon as possible, even if it means taking two tablets at the same time. Continue taking the rest of your pills as normal. Missing one pill in one 28 day cycle will not increase the likelihood that you will become pregnant, and you will not need to use a back-up contraception method.
If you miss two or more pills, you will not be protected from pregnancy and should use an additional contraception method for the next seven days.
If you vomit or experience diarrhea soon after taking the pill, you should act as though you have missed a pill, as it may not have had the chance to get into your system.
All medications affect people differently and can cause side effects.
Some of the most common side effects of Isibloom include:
Not everyone will get side effects, and some side effects may be temporary and will decrease over time.
Taking combined contraceptives puts you at an increased risk of blood clots. This risk is further increased with smoking, migraine, high blood pressure, increased age, certain heart conditions, diabetes, and if you are overweight. They can also very rarely increase the risk of liver tumors and high blood pressure. Talk to your healthcare provider if you feel you are experiencing any serious side effects.
You should not take this pill if you smoke and are over the age of 35, as your risk of cardiovascular complications such as blood clots increases as you age.

Serious risks associated with taking Isibloom are rare, but ensuring that your consultation is filled out accurately can help the doctor determine if it is the most suitable treatment for you.
Some medications can make combined oral contraceptives less effective. This is why it is important to detail any health conditions you have and other prescription drugs or supplements you may be taking. This includes certain antibiotics, medication for epilepsy and HIV, and herbal remedies like St. John’s Wort.
Breastfeeding is not recommended while on combined contraceptive pills.
Birth control pills do not protect you from sexually transmitted infections, so you will still need to practice safe sex.
