Can I take the morning after pill while breastfeeding?

Can I take the morning after pill while breastfeeding?

Yes: Since mom's exposure to hormones in the morning-after-pill is of short duration, any hormones passed onto the baby via the breastmilk would also be of short duration. If desired, mom can pump and dump the breastmilk on the day(s) she takes the morning-after-pill. It is best if mom uses a reliable form of contraception, other than oral contraceptives, when breastfeeding a young baby. ...Read more

Yes, but...: Starting a combination contraceptive pill the day after you take the morning-after pill won' hurt you. However, it won't protect you from pregnancy right-away. You will need to use a back-up for some length of time. How long depends on what cycle day you are now. Best wishes! ...Read more

While taking junel fe 21 can you have your period while taking the active pills or will the cycle always start the week you don't take any pills?

While taking junel fe 21 can you have your period while taking the active pills or will the cycle always start the week you don't take any pills?

Yes but.....: When you take birth control pills (BCPs) you typically have no bleeding while on the active pills but then have your menses 2-4 days into the placebo pills (not active pills). If you have bleeding while on the active pills it is more likely breakthrough bleeding (progesterone dominant effect). If you are just starting the BCPs it may take your body 2-3 months to adjust to the hormones. ...Read more

Can estrogen in cocps actually harm my baby if taken while breastfeeding?  Or will it just reduce supply? How soon after birth can I start taking it?

COCPS and breastmilk: Cocps are safe for use while breastfeeding, however they do reduce breastmilk supply. Best to start cocps 6-8 weeks after delivery so you can establish breastfeeding. Progestin only oral contraceptives will have less effect on milk supply .

Is it okey to start taking contraceptive pills while I'm taking a daily meloxicam 15 mg ?? And when should i start taking the pills before sex?

Yes: There is no problem with taking meloxicam with birth control pills. You can start them any time as long as you don't mind breakthrough bleeding. I advise my patients to start them the Sunday after their period starts ( that day if it starts on Sunday) and take them the same time every day . This can be whatever time is easiest for them to remember. Taken that way you can rely in them after 2 weeks ...Read more

If you forget to take a birth-control pill and the next day take two doses, can the ovulation still occur?

If you forget to take a birth-control pill and the next day take two doses, can the ovulation still occur?

Birth control: It is always a good idea to double up a dose if you miss a pill. Most likely the pill will still be effective that month unless you miss more than two doses in a row. It is never a bad idea to use back-up contraception for the rest of the month as an extra precaution. ...Read more

If I take the morning after pill on the  night before ovulation will it  work.

Maybe: It is unclear from your question whether you are taking it before or after intercourse.It is not meant for routine contraceptive use which is why it is called emergency contraception. It is meant for use after an unexpected failure of contraception and is 95% effective if taken within 24 hr. after intercourse even at mid-cycle. This is less than the effectiveness of other contraceptives. Be safe! ...Read more

And can u have a skipped period if u stop taking the chaste tree berry supplement after taking taking it for a while . Then start taking it again?

And can u have a skipped period if u stop taking the chaste tree berry supplement after taking  taking it for a while . Then start taking it again?

Unpredictable: There are so many reasons for skipping a period (pregnancy is the most common), maybe your chasteberry sup could be involved. But chasteberry has no proven or predictable effect on menstrual periods, so I'd consider 10 other reasons first. If you are sexually active, a pregnancy test is step 1, and good wishes. ...Read more
