Do I Need To Take The Pill If I Am Nursing
No: Do you need to take the pill while nursing? No. Do you need some type of contraception while nursing? Yes, yes, yes.

Forgot to take birth control this AM and won't be able to until 4pm. Do I need to take it ASAP when I get home or what? Def don't want to get pregnant
Take ASAP: It depends on what type of birth control pill you are taking, but in most cases, taking it when you get home should be fine. If you forget to do that, then taking 2 the next day is okay as well. If you are taking a Progestin-only pill, such as Micronor, (norethindrone) then you definitely need to take ASAP. If taking a combined birth control pill (that contains estrogen), then taking ASAP or 2 tomorrow is fine. ...Read more

Depends: There's no need to go to the hospital unless you are feeling bad physically. For example, severe abdominal pain, severe headache, blurry vision, or swelling in one of your legs. If you just feel a bit nauseous, that is expected. In the future, check the birth control instructions in the package. Never take more than two birth control pills in one day. ...Read more
If I have been taking diet pills and I decided to get pregnant, how many months after stopping the pill do I need to wait for me to get pregnant?
What pills? A week?: Complex question because no specifics of what agents/pills were offered & most "diet pills" have little/no scientific evidence of efficacy. The reason that most pills are recommended on a daily of more frequent schedule is that our bodies are open systems, constantly absorbing & eliminating; most things have a quite short half-life in the blood stream & our bodies.

The : The food and drug administration (fda) categorizes valacyclovir as pregnancy category b. This category means it has not been studied in pregnant humans. However, it did not appear to cause injury in animal studies. The issue for use of any medication during pregnancy is that the possible risks need be weighed against the benefits. Although, it is often used by women who are pregnant, you should not use valacyclovir or any other medication without discussing it with your obstetrician. I hope this is helpful. ...Read more

This applies to any patient receiving medication from provider. In general, take daily. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
