Althea and Breastfeeding Women



Althea is one of the most regular contraceptive pills in not only the Philippines, but in the entire ASEAN countries.


Naturally, all categories of women are taking it to avoid unwanted pregnancy. I have seen many women who are breastfeeding their babies are wondering whether they can take Althea or not.


The answer is NOT!


Yes, Althea should not be taken by lactating or breastfeeding women.


The reason is its ingredients. As you might know, Althea is a combined form of contraceptive pill. It means that Althea contains Estrogen, and also progesterone. You can also say that it is an Estrogen hormone based birth control pill.


And, if a lactating woman takes estrogen based pill then the production of breast milk may be negatively affected. Low breast milk will only compromise the health of the baby.


If you are a breastfeeding woman, don’t take Althea. You should also not take any other estrogen based birth control pill.


You can take a progesterone only pill. There are many in the market. The manufacturer of Althea also produces a progesterone only pill, named DAPHNE.

Haroon Bilour was one of the most eloquent and modern leaders of Pakistan. He was killed along with 12 others in a suicide bombing in Peshawar. He was attending a Jalsa when a man came to shake hands with him. The ever smiling Haroon shook hands and that proved his last handshake with someone. In a few minutes, he was dead. The highly educated barrister who was courageously taking ahead the fight of his father Shaheed Bashir Bilour became latest victim of mindless violence.



Father of Haroon was also killed in a similar manner in 2012. The family has suffered much. They have always been vocal opponent of Taliban. They knew what it means to oppose terrorist forces.
