Does Birth Control Pill Make You Have White Spots On Stool
If the brown row of my birth control pills is inactive, does that mean I can still get pregnant while I'm taking them?
No..: The other 3 weeks of active pills are carefully measured and controlled as to when you take them (some packs are multidose, some are just one or two) so that you should end up not ovulating at all, making that one week of inactive pills not a threat because there should be no egg to fertilize even if you have unprotected sex. Also, the hormones make your cervical mucous thicker- harder for sperm ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Each pill can affect people in different ways. One pill may cause a lot of side effects, and it sounds like this pill isn't working for you. If this is stil going on, after more than 2-3 months on the levlen, (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) then you should switch to a different pill. ...Read more
