hy-an vs microval
Hi Dr.

I had a baby nine months ago and when i went for my 6 wk checkup the doctor gave me microval as i was breastfeeding. I continued using it until this year January, when i went to collect it from the clinic the nurse gave me hy-an and told me that they did not have microval in stock. i just wanted to know from you if hy-an is as safe as microval because i have been feeling some movement in my womb i am scared that maybe i could have fallen pregnant again. is it possible? i have been taking my pills everyday

There are many generics for medications. I am not familiar with the one you mention. Remember though that Microval is not a particulalry safe contraceptive.
