Most likely, after 45 years of age, the risk of breast cancer with ed pills is not higher than with other types of contraception. When taking ed pills, the incidence of endometrial cancer is reduced by 50%. The incidence of epithelial malignant ovarian tumors is reduced by at least 40% (up to 80% when taken for more than 5 years). In women with initially disturbed hormonal balance, the preventive role of ed pills is higher.
A package of tablets for a month contains 21 (24) active tablets, that is, ed pills with hormones. Some of the drugs also include placebos - "empty pills" that do not contain hormones, but are included for ease of administration. Single-phase ed pills (21 tablets) are taken from 5 to 25 or from 1 to 21 days of the cycle. Multiphase tablets must be taken from the 1st day of the cycle. Then take a break of 7 days.
