took wrong color sprintec pill
2 Replies RSS
Hi, I always take my sprintec pill at 9:00 pm. I have been on the pill for a little over a year consistently. Last night I was very tired and wasn't paying attention when I took my pill, and I accidently took my Saturday White Pill instead of my Thursday Blue Pill for my 3rd week. I am wondering what pill am I supposed to take now. Thank you ## Hello, Sydney! How are you? Missing one of the white pills doesn't matter, because they don't contain active hormones, so you should just go ahead and take the active one and then continue as you normally would. If you take an active tablet late, or miss one, you increase your risk of pregnancy and may experience breakthrough bleeding. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Ok so all my pills are blue expect this week pills are wh...

is it possible to get pregnant while on jadelle
16 Replies RSS
I started spotting 3 months after having jadelle inserted. It continued for 1 month and have stopped for 2 weeks now. I sometimes have strong stomach cramps and my body temperature has risen. Could I be pregnant? Pls help me. I am confused. ## I am 30 yrs old, I inserted Janelle 2 yrs ago. Then on the last day of my period I had intercourse. It was on the 2nd of august 2016. From that day on I didn't see my period again and now I'm not feeling myself. I'm vomiting, loosing weight, lacking appetite. Does that mean I'm pregnant? Plz help. ## The only way to know for sure is by having yourself checked for pregnancy, though it isn't very likely that you are, given that you have the Jadelle implant. Some women stop having periods, when using contraceptives, the U.S. FDA l...

Lady Contraceptive pills
237 Replies RSS
Can I ask, is it safe if take a lady contraceptive pills 2 days after my menstruation and then be intimate with my partner? Is there no possibility that I would get pregnant? Thanks for the answer :) ## No, if you start these tablets after you menstrual cycle has ended and then have sex, there is still a chance that you could get pregnant. For immediate effectiveness of birth control pills, you need to start them, while you are on your period. If you do so, it will prevent ovulation and protect you against pregnancy. However, if you start them at any other time of your cycle, then you need to be on them for at least a full week (7 days), before you will be protected from pregnancy. Birth control tablets are not something that you can just take on the day you have sex and be protected fr...

My daughter who was naturally a funny, happy adventurous person her whole life became severely depressed and had suicidal thoughts from the very beginning of her use of IMPLANON. Anxiety and panic attacks, non-stop bleeding, Even hallucinating towards the end. It was so bad, she was house bound the last few months of her life. She took her life during one of her severe bouts of severe depression. She had this implanted in her body for 2 years. Could not find a doctor to remove it, even planned parenthood to her sorry, not our problem. UNBELIEVABLE. What do these pharmaceutical companies think women are for? Do we not have any more worth then their test monkeys or guinea pigs that they can just stick something in our bodies without concern as to what it does to our mind not to mention on...

Hi, I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend. I went to my OB last week and she told me that I was ovulating. And then my boyfriend accidentally ejaculated inside of me. After 20hrs I took the first 4 pills, and took the next 4 an hour late (because I fell asleep). Help me please? Is there a possibility I could get pregnant? Please, I'm really scared. ## Hi.

Still bleeding day 8

I started taking Tri Sprintec in October but I began to forget and was messing up. My period started last Saturday and I’ve been taking my new pack everyday since last Sunday. How long does it take for the pill to make my period stop. I take birth control only to regulate my periods because I’m irregular. The last thing I want is another 2 week period or even longer like I’ve had in the past. ## That can be a normal side effect of this medication, according to FDA reports, you may experience irregular bleeding for the first 3 months, as a side effect, while your body gets used to the medication. Other side effects are listed as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, mood changes, weight changes, and PMS-like symptoms. If things don't improve, after 3 month...

can i take the trust pill after my menstruation? ive search the internet and it says u must take the pill on the first day of menses but my friend told me after the menses, so tell me pls as im confused, bc i want to use trust pills so that i will not get pregnant. ## No, to first start oral contraceptives, you have to start them on the first day of your menstrual cycle. This helps allow your body to adjust to the hormones in the medication and starts the protection to prevent pregnancy, because you are not protected immediately, it takes time for the protection to take effect. You have to wait at least a week, before having unprotected sex and preferably, a month. Are there any comments or questions? ## can i use trust pill as a quick start? Its been two weeks ago since i got my monthl...

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 ...

Sprintec Skipping Period
32 Replies RSS
I want to skip my period. Can I skip the white pills on sprintec and start a new pack? ## Yes, unless your doctor has told you not to do so, it is perfectly safe to do this, occasionally. Many women use oral contraceptives to skip having their menstrual cycle on special occasions, or other times when it would just be inconvenient. There are even some on the market now that allow you to only have 3 or 4 menstrual cycles a year. Are there any other questions or comments? ## I don't really think you should do that until talking to a doctor, just to be sure.... My doctor is having me skip the placebo pills for two months then taking it the third month so that I'll have a period every three months. You don't want to mess anything up, so talk to a doctor first. ## I have just star...

Oralcon Contraceptive Pills
60 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...

Expired Implanon

Hi. I have had the implanon since 2012. It is now due to be removed. It was expired on april 28, 2015. Today is september 12 2015 and I still have it. I got my first menstrual since march on sep. 2015. Is the implanon officially done working? Should I be worried? Am I healthy? ## It may still be releasing some hormones in your body, plus once it's expired, it can take a couple months for your body to adjust and for your natural hormones to take back over and things to return to normal. The FDA lists the typical side effects of Implanon as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, weight gain and PMS-like symptoms. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hi. I'm a 22 year old female. I've had the implant for 6 years (I had it changed out 3 years ago) and the current ...

My doctor told me to take my first pill as soon as my period strted, how long till it is effective ? ## I started Loestrin 24 Fe this month. I just finished my second week, meaning I am halfway through my first pack. Last night I had sex with my boyfriend, and we used a condom as backup. But the condom broke, and he said he ejaculated before he pulled out. The info sheet that came with my birth control says that the birth control should have been effective after the first 7 days, so I should be fine. But I also see people saying its not effective until the second pack.

is there posible to get pregnant if i stop using pills but not having sex
2 Replies RSS
I use pills for a couple of month and I'm planning to stop using question there posible that I might get pregnant even I'm not having sex ## Pls answer me..I really want to know ## Sperm can live in your body for about 4 days after sex. After that, if you arent having sex, you don’t need birth control. However, if you do become sexually active again, use a condom. Most Birth control pills have to be taken a full week before they are reliable. So. Dont stop and start. Only stop if you are absolutely sure you wont need them at all for an extended period of time. Like several months. Or a year.

Pregnant? Or just my body tricking itself?
3 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...

Trust Lady Pills

i am using trust lady pills for 8 months. however, in my last month of usage, instead of taking up only 21 beige pills, i mistakenly took 25 beige pills, which means i had an excess of 4 beige pills.. if only i had taken the 7 white pills properly, my expected menstruation should be around june 12 to 14, but until now june 15, i have no menstruation yet.. is that a usual effect of exceed intake of 4 beige pills? ## Yes, taking the active pills for a longer period of time, will delay your menstrual cycle, that is perfectly normal. As a matter of fact, that is how some women use birth control to skip their menstrual cycle, at times when it would be inconvenient to have it. There is really no harm in it and you should, once again, start your cycle, after taking the white, inactive tablets ...
