Birth Control Pills (Definition)

Also known as oral contraceptives, birth control pills are highly effective oral medications that use hormones to prevent pregnancy. There are two main types of birth control pills: one with estrogen and progestin (also known as the combination pill) and one with just progestin. The two main ways they prevent pregnancy are: 1) The hormones thicken the cervical mucous, which keeps sperm from entering the uterus on their way to the egg; and 2) By maintaining a level of hormone in the blood stream that prevents the ...Read more

Probably.: I would not worry much about your birth control pill in relation to mitral valve prolapse. However, it's been six years since your mitral valve has been re-evaluated. Mitral insufficiency, regardless of the cause, can be progressive and should be re-evaluated intermittently through life. There are increasing options for treatment if the valve dysfunction is progressive. ...Read more

Are birth control pills taken for acne like Estelle 35-ED/Diane 35-ED just as effective for birth control as other combination pills ?

Are birth control pills taken for acne like Estelle 35-ED/Diane 35-ED just as effective for birth control as other combination pills ?

Yes: It's perfectly effective as a birth control due to the estrogen. The main difference is that the other hormone is typically a Progesterone in other combination pills. The second hormone in Estelle-35ED is an anti-androgen hormone called cyproterone acetate which decreases the level of androgens you are exposed to/able to respond to and thereby decreasing oily skin and acne. ...Read more

I switched birth control pills from diane 35 to tri cyclen, will it effect my weight or breast size and how effective is each?

OCP symptoms: Dian 35 has a higher dose of Estradiol than tricyclen so you may notice some reduction in your breast size if they grew while on dian, the weight change may be minimal. Still, as you get adjusted to the dose, you may recognize that the differences are minimal. ...Read more

I took diane 35 as ec pill for the first time in my life taking birth control pills had unprocted sex same time am i pregnant ? my period due in 6 day

I took diane 35 as ec pill for the first time in my life taking birth control pills had unprocted sex same time am i pregnant ? my period due in 6 day

Maybe not: A woman who is taking her birth control pills properly, is very unlikely to be pregnant. If not regularly on birth control pills, the emergency contraception dose of the pills does work most of the time but not all of the time (if unlucky, or if taking the pills too far out after sex, one can still get pregnant). Thus, always do a home pregnancy test 3 weeks after sex, if EC pills were needed. ...Read more
