I have been using the injection since May 2011 to Nov 2011. should i take pills instead so that my cycle can return faster or what? i desperately need advise on this regard because i want to have a baby. ## Have you consulted your doctor? From the time you stop the injections, you should probably allow a few months for your body to return to normal, before you try to become pregnant. It will greatly help your chances of getting pregnant and of carry a healthy baby to term. ## I've been using nur isterate for 3 years then stoped using it few months ago about for 4 months then went for another injection 2 months back, now i want to fall pregnant but i've been expiriencing some vagi...

Hello I really need your help. I just have jadelle on December last year till today and I have period on January and on February till this month I didn't have my periods. Is this ok or am I pregnant? ## Skipping your period while using some form of hormonal contraceptive can be normal, according to the side effects listed by the NIH, you may also experience nausea, dizziness, headache, and PMS-like symptoms. However, the only way to know whether or not you are pregnant is by having yourself checked for it to be sure. Are you on any other medications?

I've been on nur isterate for 11 years now. Since i've started i had no periods. Today i have signs of periods with terrible pains. Is this normal? ## Did you start your period? Or did you just have cramping and pain? The hormone levels in your body can change as you age, which could change how this contraceptive affects you. Has anything else changed recently? Are you on any other medications? Have you consulted your doctor? ## What was your experience when you stopped using nur-isterate (re: withdrawal symptoms)? Did you lose or gain weight?

oralcon contraceptive pills help
7 Replies RSS
Hey. I forgot to take a white pill a couple days ago but remembered to take it and took it about 5 hours later than i usually do. Will it still be effective? How big can the time gap be before its no use to take it late? Thanx ## Hi, Isa! How are you? Yes, that's basically just taking it late. Missing a pill is usually considered a gap of 24 hours or more, from when you were supposed to take it. So, if you normally take it at 10am, but forgot and didn't realize it until the following day at 10am, when you went to take that one, it would be considered a missed pill. You should double check this information with your doctor, but that's usually the way it works. :-) Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hi i started using Oralcon birth control pills yesterday, i started th...

If you would like to have better control over when your period occurs in the future, you should talk to your doctor about taking an oral contraceptive. ## Hi, I had DUB and took primolut to stop. When the bleeding stopped after two days whenever i urinate i am passing blot clots which is similar to premenstrual symptom. It's almost 8 days now. should i be worried? or it's because of the tablet? ## Hi. I have a polycystic ovary and i...

B Gap Tablet

My wife has a baby of 3 months and takes b-gap contraceptive tablets. Is this advisable? ## I'm sorry, but I am not quite sure what you are asking. I also don't have much information on the product B-Gap, it is claimed to be a contraceptive to prevent pregnancy, however, since it is just an herbal supplement, it is not actually proven to do anything. Can you post your question a little more clearly? ## Can B-gap tablet prevent pregnancy upto six months? ## Is it really control birth upto six month? How does it possible? ## And that is the issue, it is an herbal supplement, so it is not proven to actually prevent pregnancy, in any manner. That's why it is not considered a drug and is not approved by any drug agency, or prescribed by doctors. If you wish to prevent pregnancy, ...
