How long dose it take for estradiol to began working and can u end up getting pregnant while taking this medication?

It sounds to me like you would benefit from seeing someone who is able to explain better the possible causes of trouble getting pregnant. And the best options for treatment based on more specific description of your exact situation. ...Read more

Had a medication abortion one month ago, now on trinessa (norgestimate and ethinyl estradiol). Should I continue to use condoms or is bc enough? 1 partner. Higher risk of pregnancy now?
Birth Control: Does not protect against std's at all, while condoms do. There are many common std's are there that you can get with only one unprotected exposure--you might have already been exposed during your pregnancy encounter. Best to be safe than sorry until you are ready to commit for good. Hpv can cause cervical cancer, herpes breakouts could happen monthly or rarely but make you contagious forever! ...Read more
I am w/o a pituitary gland. I am on replacement medications. Like estradiol and progesterone. I found out I have very low fsh. Can I get pregnant?
Gonadotropins: Since fsh and lh are pituitary hormones if you really have no pituitary function (pan-hypopituitarism) it is not surprising your fsh would be near zero. As long as your ovaries and reproductive tract are normal (probably they are) it is very possible to get pregnant with drugs that contain fsh and lh, we do it all the time. Good luck. ...Read more
What causes heavy long periods with the copper IUD is there any medication I can take. Can I take levlen (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) ED just to stop heavy long flow plz?
Known side effect: The copper IUD is known to cause heavier periods, probably due to localized irritation and inflammation. If it is sufficiently severe the solution is to remove the IUD. The Levlen (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) might help but that defeats the point of the IUD. A better approach would be to switch to the progesterone IUD which will actually decrease flow. ...Read more

I am currently taking taking tri previfem, (norgestimate and ethinyl estradiol) but was just out on a zpack for sinusitis. Will this drug reduce the effectiveness of the birth control?
Just started ortho tri cyclen (ethinyl estradiol and norgestimate) lo birth control. % of people that actually get blood clots seems too common? Scared. What is the actual % of people who get serious side affects from this drug?
I am not aware of the actual percentages of each side effect of this birth control pill (bcp). If you check the package insert, this information should be there. On the other hand, I can tell you about my personal experience. I have been in practice well over 5 years. I prescribe bcp's all the time. I have never had one patient develop a blood clot from bcp. I believe part of the reason is that I screen my patients very well. I do not give the pill to anyone who has had a history of blood clots or a family history. Also I will not give the pill to a smoker over 35, and strongly advise against it in my younger patients.
Bcp's are safe and very effective if given to the right patient. They protect against ovarian and uterine cancers. If your doctor felt you were a good candidate, then your odds are very low for developing any serious complications.
Take care. ...Read more
