will drinking too much water with the mini pill make it less effective

Unread post by Jaxmang »

Hello! I am new and have a question I am on this new pill called Slynd that does not have any estrogen. I take it in the morning at 10 am but I drink it with a lot of water because I hate when I feel like a pill is in my throat. Will taking a lot of water make Slynd less effective?

Hi Jaxmang, drinking a lot of water unless you drank so so much that it made you vomit won't effect the effectiveness of your mini-pill.

You can read more about the mini pill that you may find useful here on our main website: Birth Control Bingo: Minipills

I had to ask because once I take it, I do go to the bathroom a lot.

Thank you!

Not a worry, it is always a good idea to ask a question if you are not sure. If you are having diarrhoea that would be a concern (because the pill might pass through your digestive tract too quickly), but if it just that you are urinating more because of the water, then that is okay.
