Pregnant after Jadelle removed

Hi, I was wondering that if you were unprotected during intimacy a few days before having the Jadelle removed could you fall pregnant? ## Hello, Missy! How are you? If it had expired by the time you were intimate, then yes, there would be a risk of pregnancy. However, if it was still within its normal period of protection, then no. The FDA lists the typical side effects of Jadelle as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, mood swings and irregular bleeding. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I had just got my rods removed just 5 days ago, when will the side effects of the rods go away? ## They should eventually go away, but it may take a month or more.

Finding a Qlaria alternative

Hi, I've been taking Qlaira for 2 years. Unfortunately they stop producing Qlaria all over the world. What pills have the same effect? I'm using it to control my menstrual flow, I'm a heavy bleeder. Thanks. ## I'm not sure where you live, but Bayer makes a brand called Natazia which appears to contain a similar ingredient profile.

missed two pills sprinted and then took the wrong one

I forgot to take my friday and saturday of the week 2 pills and accidentally took my sunday pill of week 3 without realizing my mistake. What do I do now? ## Hello, Loren! How are you? If you're talking about the regular Sprintec, which has 3 rows of blue pills and one row of white, then it doesn't matter what day you take the blue ones, they are all the same. The issue is missing those ones, that increases your risk of pregnancy, if you're actively engaging in intercourse. If pregnancy is a concern, you should use a backup method of contraception, until after you've taken 7 full days of active tablets, again, without missing any. This hormonal OC may cause side effects, such as nausea, headache, dizziness, PSM, bloating and irregular bleeding. Is there anything else I c...

Hi, i stopped using the oralcon on the 8th of October 2019. I was bleeding for 5 days there after. In November i had my period for two days and in December i had it for 3 days. All three months i was bleeding very little not even to fill a pad but when i urinate and wipe myself there will be a lot of blood on the tissue. In Dec i had my period for three days on the 16th until the 18th and on the 21st of December i had a little blood and discharge on my underwear. Can i be pregnant ## If you have had periods, it is not likely that you are pregnant. Since Oralcon is a hormonal contraceptive, stopping it can cause your body's hormone levels to be off balance, for awhile, which may result in irregular periods, and changed levels of bleeding. It can take a few months for your body to reg...
