Hi, just a really quick question. I'm on Lunelle and just got my shot, of course lucky me, I received the one that came in the prepackaged needles which are now being recalled because they aren't as potent. I don't have to worry this month about it because I won't be seeing my boyfriend until Thanksgiving. Anyway, I go to my college clinic to get Lunelle but have to pick it up at a local pharmacy. Last dosage came in the vial, which isn't recalled but this one came in the needle already (recalled). My question is, do you think next month I need to make sure the pharmacy gives me the vial or should I assume that's what I'll get because of the recall? Should I just ask to be safe anyway?

Be safe, call your pharmacy and make sure that you'll get the vials.

The makers of Lunelle are also asking women to a) use another form of birth control (usually a barrier method like condoms) and b) see their doctor to discuss alternative options of birth control until they get the recall sorted out.
