Does Next Choice One Dose impact the effectiveness of your regular birth control pills? Took this bc I took birth control 1 hour late

Does Next Choice One Dose impact the effectiveness of your regular birth control pills? Took this bc I took birth control 1 hour late

No, not at all.: Next Choice and other "morning after" pills have hormones similar to those in OCP's, just in higher doses. While we advise taking the pill at the same time every day, taking it one hour late will not decrease its effectiveness. Also, using the "morning after" regimen when you're already taking the Pill regularly, is an unnecessary expense and an unnecessary exposure to hormone side effects. ...Read more

Can I gain weight after birth control? I lost my birth control becuause my insurance ran out, right after that I notice that my body was changing. While I was on birth control I was loosing weight but once I finished my last pack I stopped being able to l

Withdrawal: Withdrawal of birth control is highly unlikely to cause weight gain. Without birth control you may be pregnant which can cause an initial, significant weight gain. Other issues are thyroid dysfunction. Sometimes the estrogen in oral contraceptives can cause nausea and now you may be relieved of this nausea.

Losing insurance should not prevent you from obtaining contraception. Wal-mart has very cheap birth control as does planned parenthood and neighborhood health clinics. The clinics can also evaluate for thyroid dysfunction. I would suggest that you check out one near you. ...Read more
