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 ...

can you get pregnant while on jadelle?

soooo i have had the jadelle for two and a half years now. im not to sure how it works really! um my period hasnt come for like almost 3months now i look like i am pregnant. i thought it was the jadelle koze it says that you gain weight while on it, I feel tiered all the time idk? what happens to the baby if you are pregnant and you have the jadelle??? last question: do you get pregnant and then the jadelle kills the baby, how does it work?? ## I am so very sorry that this was not properly explained to you. No, it does not kill the baby, it prevents you from becoming pregnant to begin with, so there is never a baby (fetus) to worry about. Basically, while using it, you do not drop an egg, so fertilization cannot occur. Weight gain and irregular periods can be a normal side effect it, ac...

How To Take Micropil Pills

Is it ok if i changed pills every month? my first 4 months i took althea pill but i felt that it makes me dry, then i changed to nordette for 3 months but i felt frequently headache, and now Im taking micropill. Is there any effect about it? ## You may experience some more side effects by changing frequently, because of the different hormone levels that are in them, but that's about all, unless your doctor has said otherwise. However, due to that fact, you should settle on one as soon as you can get one that works well for you, without causing problems and not keep switching. Our bodies really don't like the constantly fluctuating hormone levels. Is there anything else I can help with? ## i was determined recently to had a pcos.i am not having menses for almost 3mos.duphaston do...

pur bloka 10mg

Hi there, i have really bad chest pains i did not go to the docter but i talk to a guy at the pharmacy and he said i should use it, i just want to know if its safe? It really get scary this pain but i dont have medical aid and i am too scared to go to a state hospital.. Im 23 years old... Please help ## This medication contains Propranolol, which is used to treat high blood pressure, and certain cardiac conditions. The NIH lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, headache, increased urination, dizziness, and hypotension. However, you really need to see a doctor to be sure what is causing your chest pains. That is the only way to know what is safe for you to take. Are you on any other medications? Have you been diagnosed with any medical conditions? How old are you?

Nexplanon removal, but immune to local anesthetic

So, in the next few months my Nexplanon will be expiring and I plan to get a new one put in since it worked really well for me. I am a little uneasy though since, when inserting it the first time, the local anesthetic apparently didn't work and I felt everything. I powered through it, but it did hurt. I am far more worried about the removal process since I know they have to make an incision and fish the old one out (and of course I put on like 10lbs so there is fat that has grown around it) and I am pretty unsure about it. I mean, I know it has to come out and I plan to talk to my doctor about it, but I am curious if anyone else has anyone else run into this problem and if anyone has been able to work around it. I suppose if all else fails I can bring in a leather strap to bite down...

I had a jadelle implant removal recently which i had for 9 months. I want to get pregnant as soon as possible. Will it be a good idea to take fertility tabs? ## Hi Cathy, I got mine removed after about 18 months and it took me a long time to get pregnant so I went to my doctor and he gave me doxycaps and cotrimoxazole tablets (they are just antibiotics) but they worked wonders more like they cleaned my womb. ## Hi..

name of tablet for early periods

I have a family function next month..but the date which is selected for our family function is time of my periods..that is why i want to know a name of tablet for early period.. ## I have family function on my period date so i want that my period to be done early plz help me ## Hello, I'm not familiar with all brands of hormonal contraceptives, but unless there are certain medical reasons that may make it unsafe for you to alter the timing of your cycle, it is generally okay to do so. As long as it's fine with your doctor, what you would do is simply skip over the placebo pills (that come with your hormonal contraceptive). Taking these inactive tablets would normally induce your menstrual cycle by causing breakthrough bleeding. So my understanding is if you change the date that ...

I took a test and it says I'm not pregnant but where is my period n y do I feel this way? I'm supposed to get it removed in August this yr. That will make 5yrs I have it in. ## Hello, Shana! How are you? This is a hormonal contraceptive, so it can cause you to skip your period, according to the U.S. FDA, you may also experience nausea, dizziness, headache, and PMS-like symptoms. There isn't much of a risk of pregnancy, since it is still active. Have you consulted your doctor? ## Can I get pregnant two days later after my jadelle implant is removed?

length of periods when on sprintec?

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 ...
