What is Tarina 24 Fe?
Tarina 24 Fe is an all-in-one birth control pill with women's hormones that block the process of ovulation (the release of eggs from the ovary). The medication can also cause changes in the cervical mucus and uterine lining, making it more difficult for sperm to enter the uterus and for fertilised eggs to connect to your uterus.
Tarina 24 Fe is used as a contraceptive to avoid pregnancy. Tarina 24 Fe is also used to treat moderate acne in women who are at least 15 years old, are beginning their menstrual period, and want to take birth control pills to control their periods. There are a variety of brands of ethinyl estradiol as well as norethindrone. The brands mentioned are not all available in this leaflet.

How to take birth control pills?
Follow the directions on the prescription label and read the medication guide or instructions sheets. Follow the medication exactly as prescribed. It is possible to require an additional birth control method, like condoms that contain spermicide, when you first begin taking this medication. Follow the directions of your doctor. You should take a pill each day, with no more than 24 hours between. If the pills are empty and you are unable to take another, begin a new one the next day. It's possible that you will become pregnant if you don't take one pill a day. Certain birth control kits include "reminder" pills to keep you on your cycle. The beginning of your period is usually after you take these pills to remind you of your period.
Make sure you have a backup birth control plan if you're sick with severe vomiting or diarrhoea. It is possible that you have bleeding that has ruptured. Contact your doctor if it persists or is extremely heavy. If you require major surgery or are being placed on night or bed rest for a long period of time, you could have to discontinue this medication for a short period of time. Any surgeon or doctor who cares for you must know the medication you're using: Tarina 24 Fe. When you are taking birth control pills, you'll have to visit your doctor often. Keep at room temperature, away from heat and moisture.
What happens if I miss a dose?
Follow the instructions on your prescription label and go through all medication guides or instructions. In the event of missing a dose, you increase the chance of becoming pregnant.
If you don't remember taking one active pill, you should take two pills the next day that you can remember. Take 1 pill a day throughout the remainder of the package. If you do not take two active tablets in one row during weeks 1 and 2, you can take two pills daily for two days. Then, take one tablet per day for the remainder of the pack. Make sure to use a backup birth control plan for a minimum of 7 days after the missing pills. If you fail to take two active pills within Week 3, toss away the remainder of the pack and start a fresh pack on the same day, in case you are a day 1 starter. If you're the Sunday starter, continue taking a dose throughout the day up to Sunday. When you are done, take away the remainder of your pack and start a fresh one for the day.
If you do not take three active pills in a row during weeks 1, 2 or 3, you should throw away the remainder of your pack and begin a new pack the next day if you're one of the day 1 starters. If you're a Sunday-based starter, you should continue taking a pill each day through Sunday. On Sunday, toss away the remainder of the pack and begin a fresh pack the following day. If you have missed two or more active pills, you might not experience ovulation during the month. If you don't have two consecutive months, contact your doctor, as it could be that you're pregnant.
