If I am taking augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) for 2 weeks for sinusitis while on Mononessa(birth control) could that cause me to ovulate and/or breakthrough spotting?
Spotting: Clavulanate can interfere with effectiveness of birth control medication and it is quite possible that it has interacted with the hormone and decreased its effective concentration in your blood which has caused you to spot.

Unprotected sex day after ovulation. On birth control. Period 3 days late. Sharp low stomach pain but did intense exercises this week. What's wrong?.!

Not long: Usually a woman will resume ovulation within 1-3 months of stopping a birth control pill. If it takes much longer than this, you should see your doctor to check for other causes of ovulation problems.

Generally no: The pill usually works by preventing ovulation. Birth control like IUD or morning after pills do not. No one can tell for sure when or if they are ovulating. Sometimes people trying to get pregnant can get a likely time by following basal body temperature, but the process is time consuming and really an estimate at best. ...Read more

If you start your birth control on the night of your ovulation day, does it still stop ovulation?
Not likely: Ovulation is a rather delicate/complex process that usually takes about 2 weeks from the start of the cycle to time of ovulation.. Regular use/timely use of ocp interferes with this process an thus prevents ovulation, but it is not likely to be effective if taking it only on the night/day of ovulation that is about to occur. The "morning-after pill" can stop pregnancy if needed. Consult doc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
