Combined Pills: Here are some other options.
Pill with a "regular" estrogen dose. Very similar to Isibloom and Viorele.
Combined pill that's similar to Sprintec and Prevfiem.
The inactive pills contain an iron supplement. Similar to Loestrin Fe and Blisovi Fe.
Triphasic version of Sprintec, also available in a low-dose as Tri-Lo-Sprintec. Helps with acne.
The same active ingredients as Yaz but with a little more estrogen.
Isibloom is a combined pill containing two hormones that help to stop you getting pregnant. The hormones are synthetic versions of the naturally occurring estrogen and progesterone, which control the menstrual monthly cycle.
Isibloom is one of a number of combined pills you can get to prevent you from becoming pregnant. The reason there are so many is because everyone is different and reacts to these hormones uniquely. Pills tend to contain slight differences in dosage level, or the hormone derivative they use. Some are more weighted towards preventing estrogenic side effects, and others towards preventing progestogenic side effects.
Isibloom sits right in the middle. So it’s a helpful alternative for women who get side effects from more progestogenic or estrogenic pills.
Isibloom is a contraceptive pill. Taken perfectly, it’s over 99% effective at stopping pregnancy. It’s a reliable form of contraception that’s easily reversible. If you decide you want to try for a baby, all you need to do is stop taking it. So you can stop taking Isibloom any time if you want to get pregnant.
Some women find that taking combined pills like Isibloom can help with menstrual symptoms like heavy bleeding or period pain, and alleviate acne.
Combined contraceptive pills work in three separate ways to provide a very high level of protection against pregnancy. This way, if one doesn’t work, there’s a fail safe.
Firstly, it prevents an egg from being released by tricking the body into thinking it has already ovulated. With no egg available to be fertilised, it’s impossible to get pregnant. In the unlikely event that this fails and an egg is produced, it thickens the fluid at the entrance of the womb, making it difficult for sperm to reach an egg. It also makes the lining of the womb less hospitable for an egg, so it can’t implant itself there.

Isibloom is a 28-day pill. You’ll take one active pill, once a day, at the same time, for 21 days continuously. Then you have seven days of inactive pills, move onto the next pack and repeat.
It’s best to work taking the pill into your routine, so you’re less likely to forget it. For example, you might take it before going to bed, or before you brush your teeth in the morning. Just make sure you pick a time that works for all seven days of the week.
If you’re switching to Isibloom from a different pill, you should take your first pill on the day after you finished the previous pack. When you switch pills, it’s best to use barrier contraception for a week afterwards just in case it takes a little time for the hormones in your new pill to register.
If you have not taken a hormonal contraceptive the previous month then it’s better to take the first pill on the first day of your period. This will mean you are immediately protected against pregnancy. If you’re starting the pill on any other day, then you’ll need to use extra protection, such as a condom, for the first week.
You’ve got a bit of leeway with Isibloom if you’re late remembering it. It’s not considered a missed pill if you take it within 12 hours as the effectiveness won’t be any lower.
If you have missed your scheduled pill by more than 12 hours, your protection against pregnancy might be reduced. Simply take the pill you’ve missed as soon as you remember and the next one at the normal time, even if this means taking two on the same day. You should also use extra precautions, such as barrier contraceptives, for one week.
