Here are some...: Do HPT in a wk after missing the expected period and repeat it in another wk if the first HPT is (-) & still in doubt. In reality, no contraceptive bears a 100% success, and the so-called morning sickness may occur any time of the day despite its name, and usually starts at around 6 weels, peaking around 9 weeks, and fading away in 12-18 weeks after conception.

If i got the Depo-Provera shot 6 days after having my mirena (levonorgestrel) removed do I need to use a condom?

If i got the Depo-Provera shot 6 days after having my mirena (levonorgestrel) removed do I need to use a condom?

Would be wise: Since you did not have the Depo-Provera shot the same day as the iud removal it would be wise to use some form of back-up contraception for two weeks. As neither the Mirena (levonorgestrel) nor the Depo-Provera helps prevent std's condoms are a good idea if that is a risk. ...Read more

Do u have to use a condom with mirena im allergic to a bunch of the condom brands I have only had the mirena for 2 1/2 weeks now?

No: The IUD by itself has a failure rate of less than 1%/yr in most studies.Some providers suggest a backup BC plan for the first weeks of any new method, but the effectiveness of an IUD is almost immediate.Condoms may provide an initial benefit of reducing STD transfer.You may want to consider lambskin condoms since they differ so much from the synthetics. ...Read more

Do I have to use a condom with mirena (levonorgestrel) or paraguard?

IUD: Iuds, Mirena (levonorgestrel) and paragard are both safe methods of birth control and once inserted in terms of birth control, you don't have to use protection but they do not protect one against sexually transmitted infections (stds) and condoms should be worn if there's concern for std. ...Read more

Low: Pregnancy rate with the minera or other IUD's is at or below 1%/yr of use. You are at low risk, but you might want to consider using condoms also because they can help prevent you from getting STD's like chlamydia or GC that can both make you sterile. ...Read more

What secondary form of contraception besides condoms can I use if I have the mirena (levonorgestrel) iud?

What secondary form of contraception besides condoms can I use if I have the mirena (levonorgestrel) iud?

Mirena (levonorgestrel): I think your bases are well covered. The Mirena (levonorgestrel) is better than the pill in terms of a contraception. Therefore adding something like the pill is unnecessary. The condom, although a form of contraception which will add to the efficiency of the mirena, (levonorgestrel) will also serve to help protect against stds. In all, the Mirena (levonorgestrel) is probably the most reliable method of reversible contraception. ...Read more

Had mirena (levonorgestrel) coil for 1 1/2 years and do not use condoms with my partner. Took antibiotics then had period more like spotting. Can i be pregnant?

Not likely: Iud's are one of the most effective forms of birth control. Irregular or absent periods are an expected side effect. Failure rates are 1%. Anytime you suspect pregnancy take a home pregnancy test. They are cheap, reliable and available at any pharmacy. If your test is positive you should see your doctor urgently because of the risk of tubal pregnancy (ectopic pregnancy). ...Read more

Cant tell yet: You can't tell if you are pregnant until two weeks after you ovulate. You will have to wait until you are late for your next period. Are you currently on nexplanon? That should prevent pregnancy, unless it has expired. Pregnancy is a big responsability. Please be careful. You are also at risk of gonorhhea, chlamydia, HIV and the virus hpv which causes cervical cancer if not using condom. ...Read more

Had mirena (levonorgestrel) removed used condoms, 3 neg tests. Headaches period 12 days late am i in the menopause?

Late periods: Late periods is not a sign of menopause. Absence or periods or better off irregular periods associated with mood instability, night sweats and hot flashes would be more suggestive of perimenopause. If you missed a period and pregnancy test is negative, you may continue checking for pregnancy especially in the face of symptoms suggestive of it. After Mirena (levonorgestrel) irregular periods are common for a while. ...Read more
