Hyan contraceptive pill side effects

I've been on Hyan contraceptive for the past two months after a c-section and my period is a very dark red blood. Is this normal? ## That can be normal, when using a form of hormonal contraceptive, according to the NIH, other side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, and irritability.

Dry Mouth While On Lo Loestrin?

Hi, so I've been taking Lo Loestrin for 5 days now and ever since the day after I took the first pill, it's been difficult to swallow and eat without choking. I also have bad breath because of the dryness that I can't get rid of, no matter how many times I brush my teeth. If anyone is experiencing similar things, please let me know, and maybe we could work on a way to get rid of it or decide if it's better to stop taking Lo Loestrin all together. ## Most medications can cause dry mouth, but I've never heard of it being that severe, from oral contraceptives. As reported by the FDA, other typical side effects may possibly include dizziness, headache, irritability and PMS-like symptoms. Given the severity, I'd suggest speaking to your doctor about trying a different...

My implant is about to expired on october 8th. Is it normal to have yellow discharge? ## Hello, Jesse! How are you?

I've been using petogen consistently for 6 months now which is 2 shots. Seven weeks into the second shot I had unprotected intercourse and I'm experiencing excessive hunger these days... Could I be pregnant? ## Not likely, as long as you made sure to receive your shots on time. It is a long-term contraceptive that contains Medroxyprogesterone. The NIH does warn that it can cause increased hunger, weight gain, nausea, irregular bleeding, and headache. Are you on any other medications? ## I'm not on any other medication.

How are you? Yes, you can just continue taking them, there is nothing specific in the tablets that makes it so they have to be taken on any certain day.
