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

Use 2nd method: Until you can get back on track be extra careful and use a second contraceptive method as backup for at least a month.The pill works by fooling your body into thinking it is already pregnant, causing it not to release an egg.If you used dummy pills and the body thinks it is time to ovulate, pregnancy is possible. The 4 you took may just make you have hormone side effects. ...Read more

I've had a headache for 4 days straight, i just started a new pack on contraceptive pills, could it be that?

Complex: Female hormones may have complex effects, as sometimes headaches seem associated and yet, bcp's may control headaches in others. There seems in some cases, to be an association with estrogen, but not always. Talk to your gynecologist about this, as it is not so simple, and perhaps you are best advised to treat the headache separately with appropriate preventative meds. ...Read more

Is it safe to have contraceptive pills during lactating period,now I am 70 days after delivery.

Yes, but...: The estrogens and/or the progestins in oral contraceptive pills are not likely to harm your baby but may decrease a bit your milk production and composition even "70 days after delivery". If you are worried, you may choose to have a copper IUD instead and eliminate the concern regarding "hormones". ..and have a most effective method of pregnancy prevention for 10 years. ...Read more

If emergency contraceptive pills cause acne to some patients, how many days or months will the latter disappear? Generally, how can it be managed?

If emergency contraceptive pills cause acne to some patients, how many days or months will the latter disappear? Generally, how can it be managed?

Up to 2 months: As you can imagine, your hormones get thrown off when you take emergency contraceptives.

Therefore, I would say one to two cycles should get your body back into normal mode. So, in other words, give it two months.

If after 2 months, still having issues, see a dermatologist.

In the meantime, you need to identify whether you have dry or oily skin and use a cream or a gel to treat. No makeup. ...Read more

Should I take emergency contraceptive if I've been on birth control pills for 10 days and had unprotected sex? I thought after 7 days was effective.

You decide: The pill is designed to work by preventing your ovaries from releasing eggs. To do that the pill provides a baseline level of hormone to keep it from happening. Some companies state their pill is effective after a week, but many OBGYNS suggest backup BC for the first month until your body gets accustomed to the pill.The choice is yours. ...Read more

Ovarian cyst: If you are using ocp your are not suppose to get pregnant or unless you dont take them as prescribed. There is no method that is 100% effective, and that includes the pill. Ovarian cysts can come from multiple causes. Did you start taking the pill the first sunday after your period? Is this a new condition or have you had this cyst for a long time? ...Read more

I had unprotected sex & forgot to take 2 of my contraceptive pills days before. i took the morning after pill 4 days later & have blood patches.pregs?

Use correctly: Birth control pills must be taken every day to work. If you are missing pills you lose the contraceptive effect and you will trigger irregular bleeding. Emergency contraception will cause temporary cycle disruption and spotting. If you think you are pregnant take a pregnancy test. Consider an IUD for birth control in the future. ...Read more

I have ipill after five days, will it work to prevent me from the pregnancy. We had sex five days ago nd I have forgotten to have contraceptive pills?

I have ipill after five days, will it work to prevent me from the pregnancy. We had sex five days ago nd I have forgotten to have  contraceptive pills?

Time will tell: That is too late to rely on i-Pill or Plan B. A home urine test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant. ...Read more
