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 ...

Fatigue on Angeliq
Post a Reply Share
I was on Angeliq 1/2 for 7 weeks and it was fantastic. My sweats had gone and I felt good and my aches and pains felt better. I then got a bad chest infection and fatigue set in. I am just not sure if it is the flu or the Angeliq that has caused the extreme fatigue I am now suffering. Would Angeliq cause fatigue 7 weeks into taking it? I have stopped it to see how I go.

just started sprintec bc
2 Replies RSS Share
I started sprintec 3 weeks ago. Started taking the first blue pill the day my period started. I am now on the 2nd white pill and i am spotting just alil bit and at first it was a brown color. I shouldn't have my period til about the 9th or so, is it common to have an early period when just starting 3 weeks ago? Do i continue the white pills til i start my new pack? Is this normal? ## These are hormonal based contraceptives, so they will alter your natural cycle and you will get your period, from now on, during the week of the white tablets. They are placebo tablets that contain no hormones, they are specifically intended to cause a withdrawal bleed. And yes, since you started it while menstruating, it means you're going to have your period earlier than normal this time, but they...

Lo Loestrin FE and continuous bleeding
279 Replies RSS Share
I started taking Lo Loestrin FE on Feb. 2nd and it is now Feb. 21st and I have been bleeding non-stop (literally all day, every day). Doctor says to wait it out for 3 months... 3 months of non-stop bleeding? I've heard of breakthrough bleeding but this crazy! ## While I agree that it is crazy and unacceptable, yes, even if it lasts for a long time, continuously, they still consider that to be just breakthrough bleeding. However, you should give it at least a full month, to see if your body adjusts to these pills. If you are still bleeding by the time you start your second pill pack, you should call and insist on a change and if they don't agree, you may want to consider seeing a different doctor. To be honest, there is no reason for a woman to have to put up with it, for that lo...

birth control mono linyah
Post a Reply Share
I was just put on mono Linyah. My dr told me to take the first pill the Sunday after I started my period. I started my period on a Friday, took the first pill on Sunday. I’m not supposed to have my next period for 20 days, but I start the white pills in 14 days. I thought you were supposed to start your period on the day of the first white pill?

can i get pregnant if jadelle expired
6 Replies RSS Share
I still have jadelle but it expired last year. I was having my normal periods but just this month i missed my period, having morning sickness, vomiting, painful breasts and period pains. So I took a pregnancy test 5 days after i missed my periods but it's still negative. Is it normal? I'm very worried. ## If the contraceptive has expired and you've been engaging in intercourse, then yes, there is a risk of pregnancy. 5 days might be too soon for it to be detected. However, all the symptoms you've described can be signs of pregnancy, according to the NIH. But, they can also be signs of hormonal fluctuations from it expiring and your body trying to balance your hormones back out on its own. Have you consulted your doctor? ## My Jadelle has expired since the 8th of Jan 2017...

Lo Loestrin FE Missing/Skipping periods
4 Replies RSS Share
I have been taking Lo loestrin for about a year now. Recently I moved to Oregon and skipped two periods by back-to-backing packs. Since I have done this I have noticed severe cramping and mood swings right around when I should be on my period. So this month I decided to try and have one to get my body to stop being so harsh when it usually isn't. Here is the problem. I am not starting. I am about to start the blue pills again and there are no signs of spotting. I am particularly nervous because last month I was all over the place with timing of my pills. There were probably 3 or 4 days (not all at once) that I had forgotten and had to double up the next day. Is this okay? I am pretty stressed and I know that sometimes stress can be a huge factor. Just want to know if I should contin...
