taking contraceptive pills; not at the same time...
3 Replies RSS
I started taking loestrin fe 2 weeks ago. A month after my baby was born, I started taking the pills at 4:00pm but I've been so busy with the baby that I forget to take them at the same time. Is there any risk that I can get pregnant if i have intercourse and don't take them on time? ## Hello, Komo07! How are you? Congratulations on the baby! If you're only taking them a couple hours late, then no. You've really got about a 12 hour window, before it's considered a late pill and 24 hours, before it's considered a missed pill. They tell you to take them at the same time to try to keep you in the habit of taking them, so you don't miss any. The FDA lists the typical side effects of oral contraceptives as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, irritabili...

Hi, I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend. I went to my OB last week and she told me that I was ovulating. And then my boyfriend accidentally ejaculated inside of me. After 20hrs I took the first 4 pills, and took the next 4 an hour late (because I fell asleep). Help me please? Is there a possibility I could get pregnant? Please, I'm really scared. ## Hi. I know my response is out of the question. I'm just curious as to where you can still fill a prescription for Nordette. I heard it's already phased out. I just really needed one at the moment. ## Did you get preggy? Any update? ## This might be a very late reply, but for the benefit of other readers, nordette is still available in some mercury drugstore. Just be patient in finding some, , ## Hello. I took the 4 pills 11hr...

menstrual bleeding won't stop
2 Replies RSS
It's my last day of taking the althea pill. I thought I'd just have menstruation on my pill-free days but mine started on my 13th day of taking the pill and it's my 22nd day now and I still have menstruation. I'm so worried now. ## Hi, I am 28 years old. I have to go out on my 5th day of menstruation but I need to stop the bleeding. Is it possible to stop it by taking any tablet? ## That can be a normal side effect of taking a hormonal contraceptive and it may take 3 months, or so, before it stops. Other side effects, as listed by the NIH, may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, and PMS-like symptoms. If it continues past that time period, or becomes heavy, you should consult your doctor. Are either of you on any other medications?

I've been taking Lo Loestrin Fe at the same time every day consistantly for two months with no period... is this normal? ## Yes, it can be. These do contain hormones, to prevent pregnancy and they can affect different people in different ways. Some women will menstruate regularly and some won't. There is really no harm in skipping, but if you are concerned about it, you should consult your doctor. Many women use their birth control to skip their menstrual cycle, especially for important events, such as marriage or vacations.

i am 42 year unmarried girl . i have a problem of irrgular periods . as per gynec my overies are not functioning. she perscribed me femilon. i wanted to know is it safe for unmarried women and for high BP paitent. ## Femilon is a hormonal oral contraceptive and it can work to help regulate your cycle, but it won't make your ovaries start functioning again. It is normal for them to slow down or stop functioning at your age, it means your most likely in perimenopause. And they can be used by all women, whether or not you are married doesn't matter. But if a woman is married and actively engaging in intercourse, they can prevent pregnancy. But they can cause elevated blood pressure in some women that take them, so you should monitor your blood pressure regularly. If it starts to el...

i have finished my pack of pills for a weak now, but still i dont have my period.... I used a PT after 4 days of finishing off my last pill and its negative..what could be the problem? Am i possibly pregnant? Should i start a new pack of lady pills? ## Did you miss any pills, at all? If not, then the chances of your being pregnant are not very high. For most birth control pills, it only takes 7 days of taking them continuously for them to protect you against pregnancy. However, these are hormonal based contraceptives, so they can, sometimes, cause you to skip your period. You should start your new pill pack on the same day that you normally would. There is actually no harm in missing your time of the month, many women use birth control to do it on purpose, when it would be inconvenient ...

what will happen if you take the pills an hour later, or if you forget to take them at the time you've been taking them every day? ## I've been taking the pill for 2 months and did not have my periods last month. I am 43 years old. ## Hello, Lee! How are you? There is no harm in taking them just an hour or so late. That's nothing to worry about, you've generally got a 12 hour window, before it's considered a late pill. Amber, which one are you taking?

Will I definitely get my period on the last week of the Tri Lo Sprintec pills? That's the white pills in my pack. ## There is no way to say you definitely will. You should get it that week, however, there are many reasons a woman may skip a period or start late. How long have you been taking them? Do you normally start your period on time? ## I have been on Tri-Lo-Sprintec for about 9 months now and yes like many other women have been experiencing major anxiety issues, but what I want to know is, is it normal to be later or miss a period on the pill?

oralcon contraceptive pills help
8 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...

length of periods when on sprintec?
23 Replies RSS
My boyfriend is coming back from college and he is only going to be in town for the weekend. I started my white pills this past Sunday but want to be done with my period by Friday night or early Saturday. This is my first month taking it so I'm not sure how my body gonna work with it yet. My periods are usually a full 7 days. Do periods tend to be shorter when on sprintec? If not can I start my blue pills on Thursday or Friday to make my period end sooner? ## For the first few months on birth control, your menstrual cycle is actually usually longer than your normal cycle, because your body has to adjust to the hormones. Sometimes, it is even skipped altogether, which may happen if you are lucky. However, once you have started the inactive tablets and not taken the active ones for a ...

Spotting 10 hours after taking nordette

I took 4 orange pills of nordette as ecp and the next dose 4 hours late because i fell asleep. i vomited 2 hours after the first dose.10 hours after the second dose now and im experiencing abdominal cramps, nausea and some light spotting/ light bleeding.. my question is, is this my period or just a side effect of the pills? ## It is actually hard to say. It could be your period, or a side effect, which the NIH lists as also possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and PMS-like symptoms. Has it turned into a full flow, or are you still just spotting?

Plan B and cramps...
Post a Reply
My fiance and I had unprotected sex on March 6th around 1 in the morning. She could have been ovulating, i heard there were different times for that. Her period ended on March 4th. On March 7th at 9:30 in the morning she took the plan b pill. It has been 20 days and she is experiencing sharp cramping in her abdominal area, a little back pain and some fatigue. No bleeding yet and her period was supposed to start today. She says that she will start soon, but for my benefit can someone help out? I am worried that she may be pregnant or have an ectopic pregnancy, she will not go to the doctor or er because of her pain. Are these just side affects of the plan b? I hate that she is having this pain.

althea pills after intercourse
15 Replies RSS
What happens if you take Althea immediately after intercourse? Will it get your pregnant or something? ## No, it actually helps prevent pregnancy. By upping the dose, one can take it after unprotected intercourse as an emergency contraceptive to help prevent pregnancy. Just one tablet, taken after intercourse, will not work. It either needs to be a higher dose, or a woman must be taking it regularly, each day. However, upping the dose on your own is not safe and should only be done under your doctor's instruction and approval. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I drank 2 Althea pills immediately right after intercourse. This will prevent me from getting pregnant right? I've been taking it until today but my period hasn't come yet and it's been two weeks. Before t...
