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

Do birth control pills trigger attacks of svt?

Do birth control pills trigger attacks of svt?

Probably not: It is unlikely that your pills would be causing your svt. Talk to your doctor about whether your arrhythmia increases your risk for blood clots. If it does, you should make sure you are not using a contraceptive method which contains estrogen. You can consider the iud, condoms, progesterone-only pill, or injectable (depo-provera), none of which contain estrogen. ...Read more

Im on birth control pills (3 months now) orthocyclen, (ethinyl estradiol and norgestimate) im having anxiety attacks, would lowering my estrogen to 30mcg instead of 35 help?

Im on birth control pills (3 months now) orthocyclen, (ethinyl estradiol and norgestimate) im
having anxiety attacks, would lowering my estrogen to
30mcg instead of 35 help?

Not likely: The lowering of dose you describe is not significant. It is possible that the pills aggravate preexisting anxiety. It is unlikely to create anxiety from scratch. However, there are much lower doses than what you described. Ultra low-dose pills have 10 µg, while the NuvaRing (vaginal) is 35% lower than typical low dose 20 µg pills. It is worth a try. ...Read more

I had embarrasing problem of masturbation and during doing it i started bleeding doctor gave  me birth control pills soon i recovered but now i have chronic uti attacks although iam taking antibiotics but still iam having bacterias in my urine iam unmarri

Not the problem: Masturbation is normal and healthy and does not cause bleeding.The pill should not be causing bacteria in your urine especially if u r on antibiotics to prevent infections.There may be a structural abnormality causing the persistent infections.U need to be seen by a urologist to have this checked out.Was the cause of the bleeding evaluated?Pills only treat the symptom and can cover up the cause. ...Read more

Does Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) have a higher risk of blood clots, stroke or heart attack than other birth control pills?

Does Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) have a higher risk of blood clots, stroke or heart attack than other birth control pills?

Slightly: The answer is a bit more complex. All birth control pills slightly increase your risk for blood clots. Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) and yasmin, have a Progesterone that has a sligtly higher risk then other birth control pills. That being said, the risk of blood clots during pregnancy is ten fold higher then this, yet most women don't avoid pregnancy because of that risk. The fda has not pulled Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) off the market. ...Read more

Am a 22yr old unmarried, is it safe for me to take birth control pills? What r the side effects?

USUALLY: Without reviewing your personal health history it is hard to make a blanket statement. The pill is usually a combination of hormones like the ones your body would make anyway. They work by making your body think you are pregnant,preventing you from ovulating (releasing an egg). The pill comes in different strengths and combinations and a doc can usually find one that has the least side effects. ...Read more
