Emergency contraceptive pills and pregnancy

Hi. I'm using oralcon for 4 months now and sometimes I forget to take the active ones, so I end up changing times or skipping doses. Is it possible for me to get pregnant? ## Hello, Bunny! How are you? Yes, if you completely skip some tablets, then it is possible for you to get pregnant. They need to be taken every day to protect you from pregnancy, because they work by preventing ovulation. Changing the time isn't a big deal, you can usually take one within a few hours of when you should and still be fine, but missing them leaves you unprotected. Is there some way you could leave a reminder for yourself to take one each day, at the same time? ## I took an emergency contraceptive 3 days after my period. I want to take advantage of my ovulation to get pregnant after a recent chan...

nexplanon & hypothyroidism?

I got my nexplanon implanted a year and a half ago soon after I received news that my thyroid was swollen and been diagnosed with hypothyroidism. There is not history of this in my family and have never had any problems like this, I'm still pretty young being 26. I've had 3 kids and my weight has always be stable until now. Hypothyroidism is ruining my life and I believe it might have something to do with the nexplanon because this all started when I got it implanted. Thoughts?? ## Hello, Holly! How are you? No, that's not a normal side effect of Nexplanon, as listed by the FDA. Typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, PMS-like symptoms and irregular bleeding. Had you ever had symptoms of a thyroid issue in the past? Are you on any...

Can Oralcon cause a miscarriage?

If you take oralcon while you are pregnant, can it lead you to losing a baby? For example, let's say you didn't know that you are pregnant. ## Hello Amanda, According to the FDA there is not strong evidence to suggest that taking any type of contraceptive will negatively impact your child. Unfortunately this isn't actually as promising as it sounds, the reason that there is not strong evidence is that there are not enough clinical studies done on pregnant women as it would be an unethical practice to test on actual mothers and babies. What is noted is that there is absolutely a chance of a miscarriage if you took a large enough dose of oralcon, but this dosage would be much greater than your normal once a day dosage. So if you have been taking them as instructed then you may...

Oralcon Contraceptive Pills - Is It Possible To Get Pregnant When I Am On This

I am using oralcon contraception, but since the beginning of April i haven't seen my period. Is it possible to get pregnant while on this? ## All oral contraceptives carry a slight risk of still getting pregnant. I believe it could be a 1-10% estimated possibility depending on the brand; but in my opinion that merits reason enough to use another form of protection. Irregular periods however, are a general side effect of these types of medications; so it's not always something to be overly concerned about. This may simply be due to a fluctuation in your hormones. To make using oral contraceptives as safe and reliable as possible, you should understand how and when to take them and what side effects may be expected. A paper with information for the patient should've been given...

Oralcon contraceptive - missed pill

Hi There, I have been on Oralcon now for almost a year now. A couple days ago I was taking the red pills and I noticed I missed the last one. I took it 24 hours later with the first white one of the new pack. My question is will I be affected by missing one of the red pills? Will this decrease its effectiveness against preventing pregnancy? ## Hi, Megs! How are you? The red pills at the end of the pack are just placebo tablets that contain no active hormones, they are just meant to allow you to have a withdrawal bleed that week, so there is no harm in missing them. The sole reason they are included is to keep women in the habit of taking a pill each day, so they don't forget when it's time to start the new pack. So no, missing one or more of those ones doesn't matter, you do...
