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 ...

watson 15/30

small round white watson on one side 15/30 on other side ## birth control pill, compare to levora. ## Yes, it contains the same active ingredients, it is just a generic for it. It is used to treat hormonal issues in women, and to prevent pregnancy. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, mood changes, spotting, and weight changes. Please do not use combination hormonal contraceptives, if you are over 40 and a smoker, due to the increased risk of potentially deadly blood clots. Is there anything I can help with?

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. It can take awhile for your body to balance your hormones back out on its own. How are you feeling? ## I remove mine la...

oralcon contraceptive pills - 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...

lo loestrin fe 1/ 10 versus junel 1/20 What is the difference

I am 53 and have been taking lo loestrin fe 1/10 for about two years. I stopped taking it for 2 months and have lots of hot flashes and mood swings. I have started taking junel 1/20. What is the difference in these two drugs? When/Will the hot flashes etc stop? ## Hello, Sarah! How are you? Yes, that would happen if you stopped taking abruptly and two months wasn't enough time to allow your body to balance things back out on its own. From what you've listed, the Junel contains twice the amount of estrogens as the other. And its difficult to say when they will stop, it could take awhile for the hormones to balance back out. Have you consulted your doctor for advice? ## I was on Lo Loestrin for years. Had to switch to junel fe or Blisovo for insurance reasons. Both have twice the ...

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...

Tri-Lo-Sprintec - awful side effects!!

Ladies, please do not take this awful pill!! I would never take Tri-Lo-Sprintec (TLS) pill again!! Ever! As happened to many of you, one day showing up at the pharmacy I found out that my insurance would not cover OTC-Lo (which I have been taking for 5 years) and that I'd have to pay $75 instead of previously paying $0. The pharmacist assured me that the generic TLS is EXACTLY THE SAME as OTC-Lo. Stupid me, I didn't do my homework research and started taking TLS the next week. Almost right away, I started spotting. From day to day, I would experience sharp and dull pain in my lower stomach which I had never experienced on OTC-Lo; at first, I didnt even link it to the new pill. I also started experiencing bad mood swings. I had some on OTC-Lo before but now they became much worse...
