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 ...

Has anyone had the jadelle implant and had bad side effects?

Pregnant? Or just my body tricking itself?
2 Replies RSS
I started taking sprintec about 14 months ago, a month or so before i got married, to help my body adjust. And im pretty good about taking pills on time. I'll be a little late taking one every now and then, but i usually remember to take it within a few hours. Anyway, i just finished my first row of pills in a new pack, but since the end of my last period, and maybe even just before my period, my body has been feeling strange, off. My breasts arent particularly sore, but they feel, tight? And itchy. I feel nauseated and dizzy, my head feels cloudy. And my stomach feels odd, as if i can feel the stomach acid in it. I get headaches (that's normal) and my body feels tired and stressed. But, what troubles me most is that Ive been having a lot of unusual anxiety. Like a feeling of dr...

Trying to conceive after jadelle removed
5 Replies RSS
Hi, I'm 24yrs old trying to conceive my first child. I had my jadelle implants removed in Feb 2016 after 14months in as trying to Concieve. When I had them removed I had my period. The following month I ovulated then got my period, now in April, I think I ovulated as normal and now my period is 3 days late, doesn't feel like it is coming either, however, pregnancy test is negative. Could I still be pregnant? Why would my period be late if I'm not pregnant? ## Your hormones can fluctuate, especially this soon after having the Jadelle removed and that could result in irregular periods and irregular cycles, as reported by the FDA. You may also experience weight changes, irritability and PMS-like symptoms. It usually takes a few months, for things to return to normal, once your ...

Oralcon Contraceptive Pills
55 Replies RSS
Am using oralcon for the first time. I just wanted to know when will I have my periods because I am now taking the red pill, am on the 3rd pill, but still nothing. Am now worried, can I be pregnant? ## Usually when you first start taking birth control, it's contraceptive effects generally don't take full effect until the first couple weeks or month after you begin treatment. Although I think this long time frame/waiting period may vary according to the brand. I'm not sure if your doctor or gynecologist also mentioned this, but irregular periods and missed periods are common side effects associated with these types of medications. This is largely due to the fluctuation in hormone levels, which ultimately have a direct impact on your menstrual cycles. Have you taken a pregnanc...

Lady Trust Pills

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 ...

I have been taking Lo Loestrin Fe for 4 months now and i have only had 1 peroid and that was in the first month. I have continued having weird reactions so i have chosen to stop the pill. I stopped it on a blue pill 3 days before i switched to the white. It has been 5 days now and still no period. When should I expect to get it? Pregnancy test was neg a week ago. This drug just really seems to have me messed up. Anyone have any helpfull info? Thanx! ## Have you consulted your doctor?
