I used to use loestrin 30 in England but now I live in Chile where it doesn't exist. I asked a friends relative, who is a pharmacist which I should use as they don't have one with the exact same ingredients and dose and he told me to use Cliane. It has the same components but in different measures. When I bought it the pharmacist said it was for menopause but when I asked her to confirm if it was birth control she said something along the lines of "uh..yeah...if your doctor told you to get this". I also asked my friend to check the leaflet (as it was all in spanish) to confirm and he glanced at it and said yes.
However when I looked it up to find out more info I could only find mention of it as HRT and one page said it was not a contraceptive. Someone please help me, I don't know what to do as I have been taking it for a week already. Is it suitable as a contraceptive? If not, should i stop immediately or continue until the course is over? What should I be taking instead?
I also don't have health insurance or money for a doctors appointment so that isn't an option. Plus I don't trust going to the doctor for advice because I still misunderstand things in spanish.
Advice would be much appreciated
