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
I took emergency contraceptive two weeks in a row now I've been bleeding for almost 2 weeks. Can I take birth control pills to stop the bleeding?
You can but...: You can utilize the oral contraceptive, but Plan B was a hormonal product as well which is why you are having withdrawal bleeding. Consider "riding this bleeding out" and allow the body to reset on its' own. By the way, use a alternative non hormonal contraceptive until this period passes next month. ...Read more

I have had my period for 3 straight months. What do I do? I started taking Depo-Provera in january and ever since I've had my period every single day. Then my school nurse gave me the birth control pills to stop the bleeding and im on my second trimester
That: That is abnormal to have that much bleeding especially when you are on those medications. As you have had your period for three straight months, please see a family practice or gynecology doctor to have an evaluation. You may need to get your blood level checked. They may need to adjust your medication. If you have pain, light-headedness, or fainting, then you would need to be seen as an emergency. ...Read more
Is it normal to have breakthrough bleeding 3 months after being on birth control pills? I stop them and start them for 3 days to stop it.
Pill side effects: In the first 1-3 months after starting birth control pills, irregular bleeding (termed "breakthrough bleeding" is common. For almost everyone, periods become very regular and predictable after that time. Write down the dates of bleeding, keep taking the pill at the same time daily (missed pills can cause irregular bleeding), and see your doctor if it persists beyond 3 months. ...Read more
Dr put me on birth control pills to regulate periods. After my periods ends 3 days later I again have bleeding? Is this Normal.? Should I stop pills
No: First check a pregnancy test as this a common cause of bleeding on the pill. Second make an appointment with your physician about the bleeding. You probably just need a different pill or different dose, but I tell my patients to finish out their current pack and transition to the new birth control so they don't end up pregnant. ...Read more

I missed five birth control pills and started bleeding, can I stop the bleeding by taking the missed pills now, or is there any other way to stop it?
Restart pill cycle: Hi. Restart the pill cycle when it's convenient for you to. If you start a new BCP cycle now during the period, you're protected from pregnancy. If you don't, and postpone going back on BCPs, you should use another means of birth control until a couple of weeks after starting back on BCPs. Using combination birth control pills, a period is expected if you miss 5 days of them. ...Read more
From last two months bleeding only spotting on first day and second day later stops I was taking birth control pills from one year but the problem?
Your question did not come through in its entirety. You may wish to restate.
Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.

I missed my birth control pills for a couple days and now can't stop bleeding, what should I do? Okay so I kind of forget to take my birth control sometimes and after the third day I forget it, it makes me start bleeding. And that lasts about 4 days. But
Generally: Generally if you miss one pill you can double up the next day. If you miss two pills you can double up for two days (two one day and then two the next). If you miss more than two pills you are at risk for pregnancy and should use backup birth control (condoms) for the rest of that month. Missing four pills and then taking four at once will not protect you from pregnancy. Regarding the bleeding, you will probably bleed on and off until you have started your next month of pills. Use condoms and just keep taking one per day. ...Read more

Yes/yes: It would be common to have a period after breakthrough bleeding and if this happens often a change in birth control pills might be indicated to get something stronger. If you don't take them during your second active week you are likely to get pregnant. However, it you are trying to get pregnant it is best to stop them during your period. ...Read more
My fiancee started take birth control pills since the first Day of menstruation and then the bleeding didn't stop. Is there a problem? Day 13.
Likely normal: Typically women start the pill on the Sunday AFTER their period starts, unless they start their period on Sunday, then they should wait until the NEXT Sunday to start the pills. Her hormones are probably just a little confused right now, and she should finish the pack as directed and start the next as directed and hopefully things will even out by the 3rd pack. ...Read more
How long should period bleeding last on the birth control pills? When I start my new pack will my period bleeding stop? It's longer than usual help
Follow the plan: Since OCPs have a distinct regulation mode to get your body to behave as it should. Some irregular bleeding may occur in the beginning of the OCP in the first few months. So keep the faith and follow the plan. If it doesn't work for you because of your irregularity or whatnot, you will know after 3-4 months. And if you have already waited that long, then visit your GYN or family physician. ...Read more

26 year-old woman is unable to stop Nordette (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) birth control pills after 8 yrs of use, due to heavy vaginal bleeding upon Nordette (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) discontinuation.....?
What are goals?: The answer depends on your long term goals. If you do not want more children then an endometrial ablation is a good option. Assuming you do want more children then other options can be considered. Testing for PCOS and hypothyroidism could be done. Since you are missing periods followed by heavy bleeding PCOS seems likely. A sonohystogram should be done to see if a polyp or submucosal fibroid is present. If present then these can be surgically removed as an outpatient. If pregnancy is desired later on but not now a Mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD could be a great option. This often stops bleeding. If you are satisfied with the pill you could just continue ...Read more

That: That sounds frustrating. Since you failed oral contraceptives, you could ask about a different formula of pill, or you could try an implantable device, such as implanon, which inserts in the upper arm, lasts 3 years, and after the first several months most patients don't have any bleeding, or mirena, (levonorgestrel) which is inserted into the uterus, lasts 5 years, and again after the first several months most women do not have any further bleeding for the 5 years. ...Read more
