Is it actually true that doing a colon and liver cleanse will reduce the effectiveness of the birth control pill?
If something hits something during sex it sets off extreme pain comparable to giving birth in my colon. Lasts until I have a very painful bowel mvmnt?
My son was told after a colonoscopy, that his small intestines were on one side of his body and his colon on the other. His birth weight was only 4lbs and 5 oz. Born only two weeks early he was considered full term. Can this cause problems later?
Hard to know: The colon is part of your intestine so i'm not sure what your son was really told. I suspect that he was told he has a malrotation (though this is difficult to tell from colonoscopy).

Does colonoscopy interfere with birth control pill effectiveness? Especially the prep laxative that cleans your colon
Likely to interfere: I am not sure any studies have been done to actually confirm the effect of bowel prep on BCP, but anything that significantly alters the diet or digestion, including antibiotics, have been known to interfere with absorption of the pill. Other variables include the timing of the cycle, etc. I recommend back up protection for the remainder of the month. ...Read more
Is it safe or a good idea to get a colonoscopy before pregnancy or after giving birth? I'm 34/f with family history of colon cancer.
1st colonscopy @ 35: With a family history of colon ca, screening begins at @ 35. Hopefully you won't have polyps (like me). As long as you're not pregnant it should be safe. But remembering "those days", i'd do it before not after. The risk is really being too busy and forgetting or not having the time to have the procedure. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
