althea pills after intercourse

What happens if you take Althea immediately after intercourse? Will it get you pregnant or something? ## No, it actually helps prevent pregnancy. By upping the dose, one can take it after unprotected intercourse as an emergency contraceptive to help prevent pregnancy. Just one tablet, taken after intercourse, will not work. It either needs to be a higher dose, or a woman must be taking it regularly, each day. However, upping the dose on your own is not safe and should only be done under your doctor's instruction and approval. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I drank 2 Althea pills immediately right after intercourse. This will prevent me from getting pregnant right? I've been taking it until today but my period hasn't come yet and it's been two weeks. Before th...

Pregnancy after jadelle removal

I had jadelle implants for 5 years and removed the implants in May 2013 and up till now I am still not pregnant. I have had normal menstral cycles after removal and still cant understand why i cant get pregnant. How soon will the effects of Jadelle wear off so i can become pregnant ## After having it in your system for 5 years, it can take awhile for you to be able to get pregnant again, once it has been removed. Jadelle is still a hormonal contraceptive that prevents ovulation, so it's likely that you're not even ovulating yet, so soon after its removal. I'd suggest getting an ovulation test kit to see if you are, or not. Have you consulted your doctor for advice? ## thank you for the response. I did go to see my doctor and he recommended i start taking a fertility drug Clo...

Can oralcon contraceptive pills stop bleeding

Hi. I've been using oralcon, the white pills for just 21 days as I was told I used them because I was bleeding for a month and the bleeding did stop but now that I'm done drinking them the bleeding is back. Is it going to be normal? I'm really worried. ## How long did the bleeding continue this time? Have you tried keeping track? Some women do stop having periods while taking contraceptives, according to FDA reports. Other side effects may possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache. How long have you been off them, now? Are you on any other medications? ## The bleeding became normal seven days later and now it's been about a month without using them. I'm off medication and I want my periods to go back to normal. ## I've been using oralcon for a month now but ...

Oralcon Contraceptive Pills

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...

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...

Famynor Contraceptive Tablets

Hi. I've got a loop in but some months get an irregular, non-stop bleeding. The nurse gave me famynor, instead of ovral which they normally use to give me, when this happens. I normally just drink it for 2 or three days until the bleeding stop so did the same with this famynor. But now my period has returned after a week. Should I carry on drinking all the white tablets or what am I to do? Should I be worried or see a dr. about this? ## You can never go wrong getting the opinion of a doctor to be sure what's going on. However, irregular bleeding can be a side effect of your loop, as well as the oral contraceptives the nurse has been having you take to help with it, according to NIH reports. To really get it under control, you usually need to finish the tablets for a few months. ...

Or should I take the red ones in the new packet? ## Hello, Grace! How are you? Your cycle may change, when taking oral contraceptives, so your period may not last a full 7 days, but that is okay, as long as your doctor doesn't see a reason to be concerned. Some women stop having periods altogether, while taking oral contraceptives, according to NIH reports. You may also experience nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, and PMS-like symptoms.

Mirena for too long

I have had Mirena for a little over 7 years. I know I need to get it removed but that is not possible for me right now. Lately. I have been experiencing strange periods. They are bright red one day, practically black the next. I will have two or three days that go from heavy to light and then disappear. Two days later, it starts all over again. I thought this might be normal at first, especially since I didn't have a cycle for almost three years before getting Mirena inserted. However, this has been going on for two to three months. I also have cramping in the lower abdominal area that does not coincide with the bleeding. Intercourse is also painful at times and I have experienced cramping and bleeding afterwards. I considered menopause but I am only 31. I also know I am not pregnan...
