  • Learn proper use of your particular brand of medication.
  • Follow your dosing schedule carefully.
  • Be sure to ask your doctor or pharmacist if you have any questions.
  • Use a supplemental form of birth control during the first week of taking Ogestrel since it takes a while to be effective.
  • Follow your doctor s directions exactly if Ogestrel is being used as a morning after pill.

  • Ask your pharmacist or doctor for a copy of the patient labeling which explains these risks in more detail.
  • Consult your doctor for any questions, including possible use in nonsmokers over 40 years of age.
