Eskapel and alcohol - it is better not to experiment

April 8, 2012

 eskapel alcohol
 Eskapel releases known Hungarian pharmaceutical company Gedeon Richter, which has a good reputation in the pharmaceutical market. And as in the manufacturer's manual says nothing about the combination eskapel Eskapel - extra protection against unwanted pregnancy  Eskapel - extra protection against unwanted pregnancy
   and alcohol, it can be assumed that the fatal consequences and in most cases will not occur.

The combination of alcohol with different drugs often "left out" of research, so no one can eliminate the negative effects of such a combination for some women. We must not forget that eskapel - a drug that is intended for emergencies and, therefore, conduct a full investigation and completely eliminate all contraindications for its reception is not always possible. In addition, some women, despite warnings gynecologists eskapel used with some regularity, that is often enough, causing a number of significant changes in the reproductive system, and no one knows how to react to the body of a woman at the reception and even alcohol.

And most importantly: eskapel contains heavy doses of hormones that literally shake a woman's body. Why did it shake even using alcohol?

The combination of alcohol and eskapel strengthen all the side effects last

Eskapel contraindicated in severe liver disease in violation of its functions. The caution is recommended to use it for any diseases of the liver and biliary tract. This is necessary because it is in the liver is decomposed eskapel on metabolic products (metabolites). If the liver is partially lost its function, the hormones will accumulate in the blood, which may lead to overdose. Overdose eskapel reflected in the strengthening of all side effects - nausea Nausea - there may be problems with the nervous system  Nausea - there may be problems with the nervous system
 , Vomiting, diarrhea, fatigue, dizziness and headache Headache: Causes and Complications  Headache: Causes and Complications
 . On the part of the female genitalia are possible bleeding and menstrual irregularities.

Alcohol - a substance that has a direct toxic effect on the liver cells. That is a combination eskapel and alcohol side effects of hormonal preparation Hormonal treatments - not only contraceptives  Hormonal treatments - not only contraceptives
   They can be further enhanced. In many ways, the severity of side effects will depend on how many and what is the woman drank alcoholic beverages. But it is possible that small amounts of alcohol can have a negative impact - the liver is usually examine only when symptoms appear. And many liver disease initially asymptomatic.

Alcohol and eskapel may increase the risk of severe bleeding

When receiving a bolus eskapel, and then a sharp break receipt hormones comes rejection of the mucous membrane of the uterus (endometrium), which is accompanied by bleeding. In most cases, this bleeding is strong and lasts as a normal menstruation. But sometimes the bleeding is severe, to the point that a woman needed urgent specialized care.

Alcohol affects blood vessels bi-phase: first, it extends them, and then narrows. If a woman after taking eskapel started bleeding, then drink his efforts. If bleeding is significant, it may be critical situation that threatens a woman's life.

Eskapel and alcohol - how this combination can affect pregnancy

Eskapel does not give an absolute guarantee that the pregnancy does not occur. For example, if the tablet has been adopted on the first day, the efficacy equal to almost 95%, receiving eskapel the next two days significantly reduce this percentage. Therefore pregnancy while taking eskapel may still occur. According to the manufacturer, the reception eskapel not cause harm to the fetus, and if a woman decides to leave the pregnancy, it will develop normally.

This also contributes to the fact that in the first week of pregnancy the fetus is moving independently of the fallopian tube, without being bound in any way with the mother. And that means that all accepted it in this period harmful substances can not adversely affect the unborn child.

The same applies to alcohol - in the first week of pregnancy, it has no effect on the fetus. But this does not exclude the negative impact of alcohol on the still not left the egg from the ovary (which is just what is associated with the mother) and sperm. Toxic effects can damage the eggs or sperm, leading to the birth of a disabled child. Eskapel also would not prevent such a development.

Combining eskapel and alcohol often pass without complications (unless, of course, there was no abuse of alcohol), but it is possible and unpredictable consequences of such a combination.
