Ovral Recall Due To The Packaging Error

One million of birth control packages were recalled after a packaging error by Pfizer. The company found that some packets had too many active tablets while some had too few increasing the risk of an accidental pregnancy.

The problem affects Lo/Ovral-38 and generic Norgestrel – Estriol and ethinyl estradiol tablets.

The concern of Pfizer is that they just don’t know what is a risk of unwanted pregnancy if those pills were taken. There was a packaging error. The package consists of 28 pills 21 of those have a drug that will protect from pregnancy and seven of those are basically a sugar pill. If they’re mixed up together, it reduces the overall level of drug in a body and puts women at risk for pregnancy.

this pill is average. my doctor put me on a regimine of 6 weeks of pills, 4 day without so i would get less periods a year. i have been on it for 6 weeks and the first 4 were fine. then the 5th i started t get really bad cramps and fatigue. then i started to blled like i had my peroid even though i wasnt supposed to get it for another ten days. the 6th week was the worst. mood swings, bloating, horrible headaches and fatigue. now im on my 4 days off and my flow is very heavy but the first day off i had horrible back pain and migranes, but after taking sme pamprin the next day i feel fine. does cause some weight gain, and makes it very hard to loose weight. going to my doctor to see if there is a pill that makes weight loss easier. generally happy with this ill because i expected weird symptoms the first cycle or two until my body get used to it.
