Does aviane birth control make u gain weight? And i just started using this pill a week ago can I have inprotected sex

Reaction to the hormones may increase hunger, fatigue, water retention but not all pills are the same. If needed, try others to find the best pill for you. Taken the same time for a week, the high hormone levels usually prevent ovulation. Worried? Use backup method x 21days. ...Read more

In the meantime, you should not continue taking any bcps. If your period doesn't come within a week of taking the Aviane pills, you should verify that you are not pregnant before resuming a new cycle of bcps. ...Read more

I'm on Aviane birth control pills and also taking doxycycline for my acne. How much less effective does doxycycline make my birth control? I'm nervous

Antibiotic Guideline: Some physicians will have different opinions but if you look at the evidence and guidelines, the only antibiotic known to affect birth control efficacy is rifampin. Doxycycline should be just fine. Evidence: http://www.aafp.org/afp/2007/0415/p1252.html ...Read more

Yes: If you take birthcontrol pills for a while your lining inside your uterus gets very thin and it is possible to bleed little or none at all especially with the current newer birthcontrol pills. This is normal. If there is any chance you could be pregnant (if you skipped/missed pills, had diarrhea or were on antibiotics) do a test or see your doctor! ...Read more
