Birth Control / Contraceptive Overview

Birth control, also known as contraception and fertility control, is a method or device used to prevent pregnancy.[1] Birth control has been used since ancient times, but effective and safe methods of birth control only became available in the 20th century.[2] Planning, making available, and using birth control is called family planning.[3][4] Some cultures limit or discourage access to birth control because they consider it to be morally, religiously, or politically undesirable.[2] The most ...

Switching from minastrin to mibelas
24 Replies RSS
I've been taking minastrin for about four years now. I was forced to switch over to the generic brand, mibelas. I haven't started mibelas yet but I will be in a few days. I'm worried because I don't want my periods to be affected or anything like that. I haven't really seen any positive reviews on mibelas so I'm pretty skeptical. Is there anyone here who has made the switch to the generic brand and can offer me some advice on if you've had any changes with periods or just in general? Thanks! ## Don't switch, it's horrible! I just made the switch too and wish i hadn't. I'm one month in and miserable. Depression, acne, moodiness, bloating, you name it. Don't switch if you can avoid it. ## Are you going to switch to a new birth control then? ...

Took wrong Loestrin FE pill
2 Replies RSS
I took my Sunday white pill yesterday, skipping my placebo I was supposed to take, what do I do? ## HI, Annie! How are you? There's really nothing to worry about here, it will really just alter your cycle by a day for the new month of taking them, but you'll still be protected against pregnancy. Unless your doctor instructs you otherwise, you should just toss that placebo pill and continue with the active ones. ## I'm on lo loestrin fe. I was intimate in Saturday, my last week of the pack was from Sunday onward. I accidentally took my 2 white pills a day early, on Tuesday I should've taken my last blue pill and accidentally took a white pill that day and Wednesday so today Thursday my last active pill day I had the last blue pill still remaining and took it since the whi...

lo loestrin - took wrong pill white
3 Replies RSS
Hi, I have been taking this birth control for about 5 months and I am intimately active with my husband. The other night I took a white pill instead of the blue pill because it is by the bed side and I didn't turn a light on like a dummy. I started something like a period the day after the missed pill, that's when I noticed I took the wrong one. The blood is very dark and been going on for about a week and 1/2. I only have 8 more blue pills left to take before I start the white one and go to the brown one. Is the dark blood a sign I'm pregnant? I've continued to take the pills every day and that was the first time I've missed a pill, well taken the wrong one. ## Hello, Danielle! How are you? When you're taking oral contraceptives, your period is actually a breakt...

switching from excluton to althea
3 Replies RSS
is it okay to directly switch from excluton to althea?its my last pill of excluton yesterday, so today i am starting my althea.Is it okay since i dont have my menstruation yet but i already took my 1st tablet of althea? ## Hello, Marie! How are you? Yes, that should be okay, but you should double check with your doctor to be certain. However, that is the way it is normally done, just a smooth straight transition from one oral contraceptive to the next. Just make sure not to miss any tablets. However, why haven't you had your period, yet? That would normally be the time that you'd finish a pill pack. ## This week (tuesday) was my last pill of dapne then i switch to diane 35 ,now two nights of taking diane pills it is ok ? Please reply. ## I missed my four days Sophia pills becaus...

Has anyone had the jadelle implant and had bad side effects? I got it done a weeks ago and have started light bleeding over the last few days and it wont go away as well as my skin breaking out. ## These are actually some of the normal side effects for any hormonal method of contraception.

Sprinted changing time on usage
Post a Reply
I typically take Sprintec around 830 PM. I took my pill last night and took my next pill today at 230 PM because I want to change the time that I take it. I regret taking it at this time and would rather take it in the morning. Since this first time that I am wanting to change is within the 24 hours how do I change it so I can take it in the morning, changing the time yet again. I hope this makes sense, but I changed the time now once and I want to change it to about 7 AM now so how and when do i change this?
