Charlize Oral Contraceptive

Hello everyone! I'm back with a new review that will benefit my women readers. Today, I will be talking about the birth control pills I currently use. It's the Charlize Oral Contraceptive. I'm almost halfway with my second pack so I think it's about time I write about it.

Before this, I used Daphne pills for two years since I was breastfeeding my son back then. When I weaned him off, I switched to Althea but I was only able to use it for one month because of its effects on me (more on that in the days to come). I wanted to go back to using Sophia which I used before I got pregnant but it's been phased out already according to the pharmacy assistant. She recommended this Charlize saying that they're similar so I decided to give it a try.


Use

I started using Charlize after the seventh day of my pill-free days. Based on the leaflet that came in the box, the first pill should be taken after the seventh day of your pill-free days (for 21-pill pack) or the day after you took the last pill of the previous pack (for 28-pill pack). It can also be taken on the first day of your menstrual period or any day of the month as long as you are not pregnant. It's best taken at the same time each day.

Charlize is a 28-pill contraceptive, with the last seven pills as Iron supplement (Ferrous Fumarate).

Blogger Update

Hello everyone! It's been three months since my last post and I really miss writing reviews or any article I can share with all of you. But I don't have the luxury of time to update this blog because I'm busy working on the content of another site which we are launching soon. Additionally, my toddler has been wanting attention even if we are giving him lots of those. He would pull me away from my laptop each time he feels like I'm so serious with what I'm doing. Sometimes he would push me to lie down and tells me to "sleep". Maybe my son knows that I need more sleep? 😄 And guess what? We haven't found a babysitter until now. That's ridiculous! I wonder what caused the extinction... 😄

Anyway, I'm updating this to let you know that I'm still here and still very much interested to write for this site should I be given more free time. I just don't know when will it happen.

Play It Big At The Play Barn

As a mother of a young boy, I'm always on the lookout for various ways to make my child happy and entertained. Aside from buying him toys and taking him to our town plaza, I take him to indoor playgrounds too. I'd usually prefer those located inside malls since it is more convenient but to celebrate his 2nd birthday, we took him to The Play Barn at Solana Premiere in Iloilo Esplanade.

What sets The Play Barn apart from other indoor playgrounds he has been to before is the huge space and facilities like the giant soft slide that is as high as the ceiling. Actually, The Play Barn has only three main attractions - the obstacle house with ball pit, inflatable castle and the inflatable soft slide I mentioned. There are also three basketball hoops, mini trampoline, mini plastic slide as well as bouncy toys.


Babi Goes To... La Puerta Al Paraizo

[Babi Goes To... is a series to document our travels with our child. This is to help other parents decide if the destination is ideal for their own children.]

It's officially summer in the Philippines! Have you been to the beach or any summer destination this year? If not, I have a suggestion for you. Go visit La Puerta Al Paraizo in Nueva Valencia, Guimaras. We've been there last weekend and I fell in love with the place a few minutes after we got there. It's now my new favorite beach in Guimaras.


Villa Igang used to be a favorite but the beach in La Puerta is better in my opinion. It's calmer which is ideal even for young kids. My almost two-year old son didn't get scared playing along the coastline and I can even let him walk on his own in the water without worrying that he might fall due to strong waves. The beach isn't rocky as well which, again, is ideal for kids. During low tide, I love that the beach still looks as inviting.

I learned about the this Japanese brand through a forum and many people are raving about this particular product so I decided to get one for myself. I've been using this for more than a couple of months now and I think it's time I review this product.
