Mono-linyah Overview

Ethinylestradiol (EE) is an estrogen medication which is used widely in birth control pills in combination with progestins.[8][9] It is also occasionally used as a component of menopausal hormone therapy for the treatment of menopausal symptoms in combination with progestins.[8] In the past, EE was widely used alone for various indications such as the treatment of gynecological disorders and prostate cancer.

Birth Control an emergency contraceptive

(Mono-linyah) is my current birth control I've yet to miss a dosage. I had irregular bleeding and I've been taking it for two months now, as it's helped with the irregular bleeding. but this week I haven't been taking the pill at the exact same time due to a busy schedule but I've been taking them around late afternoon when i get the chance. I had unprotected intercourse and wondering my birth control will work still or should I just take a plan b pill IF I can to be on the safe side?? ## Hello, Rene! How are you? You actually have a window of about 12 hours, before it's considered a late pill and 24 hours, before it's considered a missed pill. Thus, as long as you've been taking them within that time frame, you should be fine. The FDA lists the typical s...

Mono linyah missed periods

Has anyone been late or missed a period taking mono linyah? This is my second month on it.. I had the nexplanon since February and had it removed last month.. I have missed two days but doubled up on my doses.. ## Hello, Molly! How are you? It can be normal to skip periods, while taking oral contraceptives, according to the FDA. Some women stop having them, entirely. Other side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability and PMS-like symptoms. However, if you missed pills and engaged in intercourse, there is a slight risk of pregnancy. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I had a surgical abortion almost 4 weeks along and I did not start my birth control (mono linyah) until 3 weeks after the surgery. I did not have intercourse until I began taking my pills and us...

birth control period mono-linyah

This past Friday I had a doctor visit and was just given birth control (mono-linyah) for the very first time. At the appt. i was told to take the first pill the first night I get my period. I got my period Monday so I took the first pill (which is the blue). After reading things online and talking with someone today (Wednesday), I'm concerned I already messed this up and since I'm on my period i should've taken the white pill (even the pill packet instructions don't say what color to take on your period). I'm really confused now and hope someone can help me. Should I finish taking the white pills til I'm done with my period and then start back on the blue pills? (I've only taken 3 so far) OR Should I keep doing what I was doing and stay taking the blue? ## No...

mono-linyah no periods just spotting

I was diagnosed with PCOS. I have been taking mono-linyah since August. My doctor said I should not have a period but I have still been spotting non stop. I was instructed to only take the blue pills. Is this normal? ## Hello, Carrie! How are you? Yes, spotting can be a normal side effect for the first 3 months, or so, while your body is getting used to the medication, as reported by the FDA. You may also experience nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, and PMS-like symptoms. If it continues past that time period, or if the bleeding becomes heavy, you should consult your doctor. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Between my second and third pack I started spotting. It has now been over 3 weeks of spotting every day. Is this a normal side effect? ## I have been taking Mono-l...

Mono-linyah missed pill

So this is my first month taking mono-linyah. I usually take previfem but they didn't have it. Well the pharmacy had the mono-linyah ready a day later than they were supposed to so when I got the pack (on a Tuesday instead of a monday) I took the missed pill asap (i took it less than 1 day late) and then the pill that was supposed to be taken that day and have been taken them regularly since. My fiance and I had intercourse 1 to 2 days before I started the pack. I also had some light pinkish/brownish spotting after I doubled up on the pills. Could this spotting be break through bleeding? I am also almost done with the 3rd week in the pack and also feel bloated ## Hello, Cassandra! How are you? Has there been any change? It can be a normal side effect, according to the FDA, to experi...

Question about the pill

I have been taking Mono-linyah for 2 months. I take it wishin 30 minutes of the same time every day. My SO and I have been doing a lot of oral lately. I might have touched myself with cum/precum on my hands afterwards. Last month I didn't have any side effects. For the last 3 days I had some brown discharge and then a tiny bit of spotting. i just need reassurance that it's just a side effect. ## Hello, Emily! How are you? Yes, you'd really have to have a lot of it on your hands for there to be any risk there and you'd basically have to be inserting them directly into yourself. Spotting and irregular bleeding can be normal side effects for the first 3 months, or so, while your body is getting used to the medication, as reported by the FDA. You may also experience nausea, ...

Side Effects Of Mono Linya

JUST WANTED TO know if anyone taking this one had a problem with weight gain, im very nervous that it will make me gain weigh,,,,, ## Hi debby, When it comes to birth control pills, weight gain happens to be a "very common" side effect for any brand of oral contraceptive. This is mostly because of the fluctuations in your hormones. I wouldn't necessarily be afraid of gaining weight though as long as your exercising daily, staying hydrated, and eating an otherwise healthy diet. A list of side effects for Mono-Linyah (ethinyl estradiol/norgestimate) can be found here: I hope this helps! ## I gained 20lbs from it and I work out and eat like a rabbit. I'm gluten intolerant so I eat low carb. I'm struggling to...
