A 18-year-old female asked:

Same time Daily: Birth control pills work best when taken at the same time each day. If you miss a pill take it as soon as you remember and take the next pill at the regular time. It is not a bad idea to use a backup method of contraception for a week after the missed pill. Always discuss this with your health care provider.

Take precaution.: The birth control pill is an excellent form of contraception if taken properly. That means at the same time daily and not mixing with antibiotics or other medications if possible. If you take other medications, over the counter or prescribed, ask your pharmacist if they lessen the effectivity of the birth control pills. If he is that concerned, consider wearing a condom or abstinence.
A 50-year-old female asked:

Only if problematic.: Fibroids are a problem if they are causing pain and/or bleeding. If either of those are an overwhelming problem then a myomectomy might be the best option. The surgical procedure, called a myomectomy, removes the muscular knot. You will likely get fibroids again but there is no guarantee either way. Other options are hormonal therapy, endometrial ablation and hysterectomy.
