Pregnant: There is always a possibility with pregnancy when having unprotected sex and not on the pill. There is close less than 1% chance while on the pill, but while off, you may have increased chance. Wait and see. ...Read more

Is luteal phase after emergency contraception also 14 days?

Is luteal phase after emergency contraception also 14 days?

Not always: Since the emergency contraception pill works to delay ovulation, it can throw off your luteal phase. Your next period could be early, late, or a just a little different in quality. Even having said that, you should check a pregnancy test if you are late for your period. ...Read more

Ella (ulipristal acetate) one emergency contraception taken just shortly after ovulation, period is already 3 days late?

Ella (ulipristal acetate) one emergency contraception taken just shortly after ovulation, period is already 3 days late?

It happens: Ella (ulipristal acetate), (ulipristal acetate) Plan B, and other emergency contraception pills can alter the menstrual bleeding for the cycle in which Ella (ulipristal acetate) was taken, and sometimes the next cycle too. One should be sure to check a home pregnancy test about 3 weeks after sex, because Ella (ulipristal acetate) works most of the time, but not all of the time. Cycles should return to "routine" after the first or second cycle. ...Read more

More effective delaying period for a few days: start Norethindrone 0.35mg bc pills on day 23 of my cycle OR Provera (medroxyprogesterone) 5mg 3x day start 3 days bef period?

Im starting primolutN 4 days b4 my period starts,during luteal phase.what are the chances of getting pregnant while taking Primolut during luteal phas?

Don't recommend: If you got pregnant it would be before you started the primolut, so technically the medicine wouldn't have anything to do with it. Primolut is a synthetic progestin and would definitely NOT be wise to start it if you might be pregnant. ...Read more

I take ortho tri cyclen (ethinyl estradiol and norgestimate) lo for acne. I have two menstrual cycles a month sometimes, is this normal side effects?

Breakthrough bleed: Sounds like breakthrough bleeding which occurs when you have bleeding at unscheduled times while on the pill. Often things get back to normal the next cycle. If not then schedule a visit to discuss changing brands or changing birth control methods. This is very common. Other than being annoying it is not dangerous. ...Read more

Start a new pill called brevicon (ethinyl estradiol and norethindrone). No period?

Start a new pill called brevicon (ethinyl estradiol and norethindrone). No period?

Probably normal: Presuming your not pregnant, it is not uncommon for some pills to suppress uterine lining proliferation so much that there is no significant sloughing at the end of the cycle and, therefor, no period. "pill amenorrhea" as it is called, is normal and should not cause alarm. ...Read more

Im on contraception pills (triphasil) and ovulate, is this normal?

No: If ovulation has been documented by testing(serum progesterone) and you are taking triphasil (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) every day at the same time each day, no it is not normal. It might be time for a "pinch hitter"(another pill type) as triphasil (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) may not be "stepping up to the plate" for you. Ask your md for advice. ...Read more

Yes, likely: Yes, you are likely protected. The effects of antibiotics on birth control efficacy is very minimal. Sometimes women use a back up method like a condom, but it's very likely that you aren't pregnant or becoming pregnant. ...Read more

Had unprotected sex with partner. Currently on birth control pill trinessa (norgestimate and ethinyl estradiol) for a year. Took plan b one step 5-7 hours after sex. Pregnant or no?

Unprotected?: intercourse will ultimately lead to pregnancy. If this was a one time episode then Plan B should prevent pregnancy. Why not get on BC pills PLUS use condoms, spermicidal foam, jelly, sponge or vaginal eggs. When in doubt: do a pregnancy test. ...Read more
