I had a mirena iud implanted on Monday Oct 23rd on the 8th day of my cycle. My barrier method of contraception (condom) broke during sexual intercourse Tuesday Oct 24th and I am very concerned. Will I need to take emergency contraception? Or will the m
No: An IUD works as emergency contraception, if a woman gets an IUD after having sex. If she already had an IUD before sex, then that is very good contraception, so no back-up method is needed to prevent pregnancy. If she keeps worrying about pregnancy, she can do a home urine pregnancy test. Tests are inexpensive, very accurate, and sold in stores everywhere. Adding condoms helps prevent infections. ...Read more

Typical v perfct use: When we talk about how effective a method of contraception is, we talk about perfect use--often in a research study, where couples use the method perfectly, consistently, and with no failures. We also talk about typical use--which allows for human error--forgetting, not understanding, sometimes not using the method. So that's one reason you'll see a variation in effectiveness. ...Read more
Non-hormone methods: People with abnormalities of factor v are at increased risk of blood clots in the veins. For that reason we avoid birth control with estrogen in it (pills, patch, ring). Some doctors also avoid Progesterone (mirena (levonorgestrel) iud, implanon, pills, Depo-Provera provera) although the evidence on that is not clear. Barriers like condoms, cervical caps, and diaphragms are safe. So is the paragard iud. ...Read more

LARC methods: Estrogen containing contraceptives are contraindicated in women with FACTOR V LEIDEN DEFICIENCY. However evidence supports the safe use of progestin only contraceptives - LNG IUD(Mirena (levonorgestrel) or Skyla), Implant (Nexplanon), DMPA, POPs, or the nonhormomal copper IUD (Paragard). Barrier methods are obviously safe but less effective. ...Read more
Some safe options: Progestins are felt to be better, to avoid the increased clotting risk from Estrogens in birth control pills. So: the mini-pill is usually considered safer, the iuds are very safe options, as are: Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) shots, and the Nexplanon rod. Some oncologists are okay with using the nuvaring, b/c vaginal Estrogens don't affect the liver the way oral pills do, and get lower levels of estrogen in ur b. ...Read more
Depends: It really depends on how regular your cycles are and how good you are at cycle counting. This method can work, but unfortunately often times does not because women sorta expect that their bodies/ovaries work like clockwork and in all honesty they don't typically do that year after year. This method really doesn't work well in teens and women closer to the age of perimenopause. Best rate 80%. ...Read more
There isn't one: Withdrawal or the "pull out" method is not birth control! don't fool yourself or your partner - use a condom or some other method of contraception.

Maybe,maybe not: One of the reasons for dozens of available BCP's is the difference in individual women.Various pills have a differing combinations or doses of hormones.Some will do well on one preparation while others will not tolerate it. Yet a different preparation is likely to meet the needs of most women.Switching between similar dose/blends from different drug companies may go easier than changing the mix. ...Read more
