oralcon pills stops periods?

I had an emergency pill about 3 weeks before i started using the Oralcon pills, and took my 1st pill on the 2nd day of my menstruation, although my periods were not normal because of the emergency pill, but i still had my periods at that time, with less bleeding than usual. I'm on my 3rd pack of the Oralcon pills now, and i never had any periods since my 2nd pack, even when I'm on the red pills. I'm worried now, i want my periods back. Is there any possibility that I'm pregnant? I never skipped any pills and i always took them at the same time everyday. Or its it because i started using the Oralcon pills with abnormal periods? Please help.. ## Hello, Judith! How are you? Some women just don't have periods while taking hormonal contraceptives like this, there's no...

Marijuana and Yasmin safe?

Can I take marijuana when taking the medication Yasmin? ## Marijuana doesn't really interact with most drugs including birth control to the best of my knowledge. I think it would mostly intensify the effects of alcohol or other controlled substances.

I accidentally drank my white pill while on my period (Supposed to drink red) without thinking. What do i do? just go on finishing my red pill and then start as usual whit white? will i be unsafe? ## In most cases, a doctor will just have you continue taking the rest, as you should, but it is always best to consult them to be sure.

I am 25 years old.I had taken an ipill a month back 24 hours after I and my boyfriend made out. He did not ejaculate inside me, but for safety sake I took the pill. This is the first time I am using any sort of a pregnancy pill. I got my regular periods after than on my 32nd day from the previous period (my cycle is 28-32 days usually). The pill was taken on the 20th day something.Now my 2nd periods are not starting. Its 37th day today. We had made out once this month too but he didn't not enter me. Is there any chance of pregnancy? Or is it the effect of ipill? Should I consult a doctor immediately or should I wait for my periods to start naturally? ## It could be the effect of the pill you took, pregnancy or something entirely different.

i started oralconF when i was nt doin my periods?

Please help me,i started taking oracorn F when i wasnt havin periods.i taken the pills for 3weeks now i took the 2rd red pil but i cant see my periods am i safe? ## Hai i started oralcon f when my period starts first day and then my periods hv stoped from the second date stil i 'n taking the tablet but stil i didnt hv periods etat should i do ## Oralcon-F is a hormonal contraceptive, so irregular periods can be a normal side effect after you start taking it, and may last for about 3 months, or so. The FDA lists other typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, acne, and bloating. However, only your doctor can help you discover if what you're experiencing is due to the medication. Are you on any other medications?

Oralcon Contraceptive Pills FOR ACNE

does oralcon really help with decreasing acne? I'm only trying it out for that reason and I'd prefer not ot if it does not. I have already gotten the pills but I haven't started taking thme yet because I just need a cofirmation from someone who actually does know. Please Help!!! ## I'm sorry, but there's no way to know for sure if they will or will not help you with acne. These contraceptives use synthetic hormones, they can help some people with acne if theirs has been caused by a hormonal issue. However, there is also a chance that they can cause acne or make it worse. What has your doctor advised? What else have you tried for treating the acne? ## hello i have the pills but i only have it to see it it decreases my acne and acne scars. i haven't taken them beca...

want to fall pregnant but have been using nur isterate as contraceptive.

How long does it take for nur isterate wear off because i would really like to become pregnant soon. I have been using the injection since May 2011 to Nov 2011. should i take pills instead so that my cycle can return faster or what? i desperately need advise on this regard because i want to have a baby. ## Have you consulted your doctor? From the time you stop the injections, you should probably allow a few months for your body to return to normal, before you try to become pregnant. It will greatly help your chances of getting pregnant and of carry a healthy baby to term. ## I've been using nur isterate for 3 years then stoped using it few months ago about for 4 months then went for another injection 2 months back, now i want to fall pregnant but i've been expiriencing some vagi...

Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hello Jesse, It is not normal to have any discharge from Esperal as long as you haven't consumed alcohol.

I've been on nur isterate for 11 years now. Since i've started i had no periods. Today i have signs of periods with terrible pains. Is this normal? ## Did you start your period? Or did you just have cramping and pain? The hormone levels in your body can change as you age, which could change how this contraceptive affects you. Has anything else changed recently?
