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.


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).

What I like about Charlize

  • It is not giving me recurring headache. I get headaches from time to time but mostly it is either due to lack of sleep (I cannot survive on short sleeps) or if I spend even just half a day doing errands in the city. The city heat is making me crazy!
  • It is not affecting my mood big time. I'm still my naturally moody self but nothing more than usual.
  • My appetite hasn't changed.
  • It regularizes my menstrual period.
  • It did not cause any breakout.
  • It did not cause nausea.
  • The price is affordable.

What I don't like about Charlize

  • So far there is nothing I do not like about this oral contraceptive.


Charlize Oral Contraceptive is an affordable and safe option for anyone who wants to avoid getting pregnant. In my case, it is not giving me undesirable side effects and actually makes my irregular menstrual period regular. If you haven't found the solution that works for you, you may want to give this a try.
