Negative pregnancy test (s) two weeks after "period." I bled for 4 days on my inactive pills of my birth control. It should be accurate right? Not preg?

Negative pregnancy test (s) two weeks after "period." I bled for 4 days on my inactive pills of my birth control. It should be accurate right? Not preg?

Tests are accurate: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, STD's, vaginal spotting, or medications. A test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened). If done sooner, a negative result may be due to testing too early such as less than 2 weeks after conception. If still worried, one can retest after 2 more weeks. ...Read more

I was on a an antibiotic for two days then had sex with my husband a week later I am on the pill and still in my first week. Chances of pregnancy?

Pill and antibiotic: The only antibiotic that truly effects birth control is rifampin. Studies have shown that other more common antibiotics have little or no interaction with birth control. Chances of pregnancy should be no greater than baseline. ...Read more

My girlfriend had been off the pill for about two weeks. Came back on it nearly two weeks ago. What's are the chances of pregnancy? Thanks

Depends: It depends where she was in her menstrual cycle when she stopped the pill. Usually there will be a period right after pill cessation. If that is the case then during the two weeks that she was off the pill ovulation may have already occurred increasing the chances for pregnancy BEFORE she restarted the pill. ...Read more

Had sex using pull out method I skipped the two previous pills but took both earlier in that day we had sex. Chance of pregnancy?

Had sex using pull out method I skipped the two previous pills but took both earlier in that day we had sex. Chance of pregnancy?

Yes: The pull out method is completely unreliable. Whenever the penis goes in sperm stay. Your use of birth control pills is suspect. The before the act pill is basically what you took. If you miss your period take a home pregnancy test. In the future taking your pills daily and not pulling anything out is much more effective and enjoyable. ...Read more

My partner had a successful vasectomy a year ago and I have been on bc pills for two years with no missed dosage. Chances of getting pregnancy?

Vasectomy: The quoted failure rate for vasectomy is 0.15 percent. Most of those failures are in the first few months and in cases were a confirmation semen analysis was not done.

I have been off the pill for insurance reasons for about two months now. I had unprotected sex, which led to ejaculation. I was on my second to last day of ovulation. "High chance of pregnancy". I took Plan-B an hour after it happened.?

I have been off the pill for insurance reasons for about two months now. I had unprotected sex, which led to ejaculation. I was on my second to last day of ovulation. "High chance of pregnancy". I took Plan-B an hour after it happened.?

Pregnancy unlikely: As long as plan B is taken within the recommended period, within the 1st 72 hours it is very effective. When taken within the first 24 hours it is even more effective. You do however need to be evaluated by your PCP soon to rule out any sexually transmitted infections. I would use barrier contraception i.e. condoms to prevent pregnancy and any infections. ...Read more
