Unrealistic: The pill works by making your body think you are already pregnant.Some can be used to stop periods for months or years at a time, with close monitoring, and that is at least working in harmony with your body. To eliminate it otherwise, you could remove the uterus or they can do an ablation (remove the inner wall of your uterus were periods originate).Both are surgery and permanent sterilization. ...Read more
I had a colectomy & j pouch surgeries this year. Since I do no have my large intestine, will this affect the effectiveness of the birth control pill?

If i take my birth control pill (gildess fe) everyday but not at the same hour each day how effective is the pill? Am i protected?
Yes, but....: Yes, you are still protected, but your level of protection is likely less than what it would be if you took it at the same time each day. I recommend making it a habit to take it at the same time everyday, such as right when you wake up or go to bed (if close to the same time each day), or at noon, etc. This will also help you to not forget to take it, which can definitely reduce protection. ...Read more

Very well protected: By taking the birth control pill regularly, the protection is over 99%. It is not suggested that you need additional protection. The pill is much more effective than 'pulling out' that also may diminish the pleasure of sex. However, sexually transmitted infection is very prevalent, especially among the young. You may seriously consider using condom in additional to the pill for disease prevention. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
