If i miss only 1 birth control pill during the 1st week, take all of the 2nd week, will I ovulate during that time? I missed one pill due to surgery.

If it's possible without surgery or birth control pill, how can I stop or get rid of my period somehow? Please help me asap.

If it's possible without surgery or birth control pill, how can I stop or get rid of my period somehow? Please help me asap.

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

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?

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

If i take my birth control pill at the same time each day and my boyfriend pulls out during sex, how protected am i from pregnancy?

If i take my birth control pill at the same time each day and my boyfriend pulls out during sex, how protected am i from pregnancy?

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 more

Travelling to europe, how should I take my birth control pill in the different time zones?

Travelling to europe, how should I take my birth control pill in the different time zones?

No problem.: The easiest regimen to follow is just to keep taking it every 24 hours. For example, if it's due at 8am normally here, then just convert that to the correct time zone and take it each day at the new time while in europe. Convert back when you return. Hope that makes sense. ...Read more
