Oralcon and pregnancy

Hi. I have been using yaz for about 7 months but switched to oralcon. I am currently at my second red pill of the month but I haven't started my cycle yet. I do have extreme cramps, breast tenderness and tiredness but there is no signs of my cycle. I have taken it religiously, and have used extra protection during intimacy with my husband, however we are not ready for children and now we are worried that there might be a chance of pregnancy. ## Irregular cycles can be a normal side effect of oral contraceptives, according to NIH studies, some women even stop having periods entirely, while taking them. Other side effects may include nausea, headache, mood changes, and weight changes. However, the only way to really be sure is by checking for pregnancy. Are you on any other medication...

So apperently i have to make this more detailed but as I had said before that I too am here to see all the replies from all of yall that do have a clue. ## Hello Oby, According to the NIH both of these contraceptives are designed to prevent pregnancies but due to the nature of the medication and their effectiveness at balancing hormones they are also effective at treating acne. Below is a link to where the NIH discusses this in further detail. [1] NIH pubmedhealth Since both medications are going to be effective at helping you with your concerns you should really only worry about which of these two medications better works wit...

Yaz birth control

So last year I was on yaz and after about 3 months, I started having cramps and gas and always felt like my stomach wasnt settled. My mom thought I was lactose intolerant but when I stopped my pills over summer, my stomach was back to normal. Now I am on yaz again and after 2 months the same thing is happening with my stomach. Has anyone else experienced this with yaz? Should I be worried. I think I am going to ask my doctor to switch. ## Hello, Marz! How are you? Has there been any change? Those can be side effects of oral contraceptives, according to the NIH. You may also experience headache, PMS-like symptoms, and spotting. Speaking to your doctor about switching to a different one is most likely a good idea. With many medications, it is a matter of trial and error to find one that w...

actavis microgestin vs watson microgestin

Over six yrs my b/c was Watson brand Microgestin now the new pills I picked up Actavis Microgestin is making me have side effects...breakthrough bleeding and cramps. If the company name changed, I'm assuming the medication as well! If my body is already immune to this medication why the side effects... ## I am having the same problem. Im experiencing side effects (headaches, mood swings) on the actavis microgestin fe 1/20. I am getting off of it. ## Hello, Kym and Sandy! How are both of you ladies doing? I'm very sorry about the problems that you're having. There can be slight fluctuations in the amount of the active ingredient from one generic to another, so the new one is most likely a little higher or lower, which could account for these new side effects. I used to experi...

metazol and bleeding

Last night I took my last dose of metazol for BV and since Sunday I have been bleeding like I am on my period (5 days of bleeding) which is only due tomorrow (on Yaz). The doctor did tell me that the antibiotic would throw out my pill but is this normal? Prior to this I was spotting for 4 days as a result of the infection. I assume that the infection has cleared because there is no longer a foul odor or discharge. ## Hello, Seraphina! How are you? When you have your period while on oral contraceptives, it is due to a withdrawal of the hormones that they contain, thus, when an antibiotic affects the amount of the hormones that you absorb, it basically causes the same thing, a withdrawal bleed. So yes, it is normal. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thank you so much for replying...
