Bc youre put on bcpills while on accutane. can stopping the pills after accutane treatment cause the acne to come back due to change in hormones?
Not the issue: The issue is the destructive nature of Accutane on a fetus. It is not prescribed because it helps the Accutane. It is known to produce birth defects if taken during pregnancy. That is why you are asked to avoid pregnancy. Anyone can have a flare of acne after coming off Accutane, or any other time, but it would not be directly related to the BCP. ...Read more

Can the hormones in birth control pills cause increased under arm odor? I noticed it right after I went on them for the first time.
Anything is possible: I have never had a patient complain of that, the only thing you can do is stop that pill at the end of the month , not mid cycle, and try a different one with a differnet type of progesetrone, as that may be the cause as they all have the same type of estrogen, if the second pill does the same thing then u will need different form of birth control, but see your gyn to see what your gyn wants. ...Read more

Can I use the paragard iud with my birth control pills? I want to keep my period regulated. Also will it make one another less effective?
Unusual but seems OK: The ParaGard IUD and the contraceptive pills prevent pregnancy by 2 different mechanisms which would seem to complement each other and give you double protection, plus lighter, less painful and perhaps more regular menses ...but at a higher over all cost. I do not believe there is any plausible evidence that this unusual combination should "make one another less effective". ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
