Changing Trust pills into other pills.

I've been using trust pills for 2 months but I experienced different kinds of side effects like headache nausea one my friend told me to change into lady pills instead. It is ok to use it during the last tablet of trust pills? And I had a contact with my husband after taking 4 tablets of lady pills. Am I protected against pregnancy? ## If you just continue from one oral contraceptive tablet to the other, without missing any tablets/taking a break in between, then you should still be protected against pregnancy. You can also do a safe switch by starting the new tablets, when you would start a new package of the former tablets, at the end of your menstrual cycle. Are there any other questions? ## I've been using Lady Pills for than a month, now I'm using the second box and I...

Yasmin Contraceptive

I want to know more about it ## I LOVE Yasmin. I have been taking it for a long time. I have tried other BCP, but none work as well for me as this one. My gyno has me taking them continuously and I stop every 3 months and have a cycle, so I have a period 4 times a year which is WONDERFUL. I bloat a little bit, just when I stop to have it and also cramp, but its only 4 times a year! Hope this helps! ## Why do I have spotting after taking Yasmin pills? I'm not finished with my one pack of Yasmin yet and I'm so worried... I have 3 tablets of Yasmin left. I'm not pregnant so please give me advice.

I want to switch from althea to yasmin when can I take my first pill? ## Hello, Janice! How are you? Unless you've missed pills, you should be able to just make a smooth switch, just stop taking one and start taking the other.

switching lady to yasmin

What day can i start taking a pill if i will switch to another pill? I took the last lady pill yesterday? Can i start taking yasmin on the sunday mark even if its not sunday? ## Yes, unless your doctor instructs otherwise, you can just make a clean switch from one to the other on the day you are due to start a new pack. The NIH lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, spotting, and PMS-like symptoms. Are you on any other medications?

femiane birth control when to start taking the pill

Jus start taking the pill yesterday as told to start wen my period starts....I would like to know if I should have taken it when I saw the spotting or before I actually saw the period....an while am on this pill an if am to tame wen my periods should my flow still b coming an this heavy ## Hello, Gena! How are you? For it to be effective immediately, it should have been started the first or second day that you say any bleeding. If you started it the third day or later, then you'll need to take it for a full 7 days, before it will become effective at preventing pregnancy. That means a backup form of contraception must be used for the first 7 days, you will be protected on the 8th day. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I recently had a baby boy and started taking femiane afte...

calvepen side effects and the contraceptive pill yasmin

I have been prescribed calvepen 666 mG for tonsillitis and am currently taking the contraceptive pill yasmin. My question is will the antibiotics interfere with the effectiveness of the pill? Do I need to use extra protection? ## Hello, Twinkletoes! How are you? Yes, this antibiotic may reduce the effectiveness of oral contraceptives, so you should use backup protection.
