Birth Control Pills (Definition)

Can women have androgen excess, but when you take birt control pills you get your period?

Can you ovulate after taking plan b if you are on birth control pills and take them religiously?

Can you ovulate after taking plan b if you are on birth control pills and take them religiously?

Very unlikely: It is very unlikely that you would get pregnant which is obviously what you are asking taking both Plan B and birth control pills correctly but, if you are taking your pills correctly, there is no reason to take Plan B. It would be better to use condoms and decrease the risk of STDs in addition to increasing the contraceptive effectiveness. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Hello i'm taking norgestimate and ethinyl estradiol tablets as a birth control. How can you tell if you get pregnant while on the pill?

Take a test...: Sometimes this can be tricky. It's very unlikely that you will get pregnant if you take your pills at the same time every single day. But it can happen. If you are worried, or if you have any symptoms of pregnancy, take a pregnancy test. Sometimes birth control pills have side effects that mimic pregnancy symptoms.

Would birth control pills like Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) treat oligomenorrhea even after you stop taking them ? And for how long do you take them as a treatment pls?

Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol): I suggest you see an OB if you want to treat oligomenorrhea, but hormones and naturopathic remedies can help as well . The BCP effects are not there unless they are taken regularly, and are the current main treatment to keep periods regular. If you have PCOS you need to see a Gyne-Endo to treat your problem effectively ...Read more

Can forgetting to take your birth control pill cause you to not get your period when you normally should?

You may be pregnant: I don't know the pill, dosage, day(s?) you forgot, but since they prevent pregnancy if taken as prescribed, you can do the logic. There's a possibility you'll get pregnant if you don't take 'em as prescribed. Missing a period's seen as a first indication/sign of pregnancy. Do a home-test or see your doctor. If you are not pregnant, try to remember to take each pill & consider alternative methods. ...Read more
