Just started taking birth control (aviane) and after 9 days used I have bleeding , did i stop used the tablets or what did i do.

Keep taking them: When i prescribe birth control pills i explain to patients that if they start them right away, they will have unscheduled bleeding during the first pack. If you start just after your period this is less likely. Keep taking them and use a back-up method of birth control (abstinence, condoms, etc) until you're on the second pack. ...Read more

Menstrual-like cramps, no bleeding@22wks. On & off all day for 1wk. Real possibility of preterm labor? No risk factors except smoker but quit@16 wks.

Menstrual-like cramps, no bleeding@22wks. On & off all day for 1wk. Real possibility of preterm labor? No risk factors except smoker but quit@16 wks.

See your OB!: First, good job on stopping the smoking. Keep up the good work. Impossible to determine what is going on without a complete evaluation- physical exam and ultrasound. The ultrasound can show if there has been any separation of the placenta or shortening of the cervix. Cervical shortening is a predictor of preterm labor and premature membrane rupture. So get seen and treated as required. Good luck! ...Read more

Hi there, Do fibroids affect normal bleeding time after childbirth? How long is it meant to take? Also does the pill affect anything in that regard?

Depends:: Uterine fibroids are very, very common. Most cause no problems. Sometimes they can affect periods. They don't make bcp's less effective. If you are having unusual bleeding patterns or pain, there are likely other causes. If you have two abnormal periods in a row, and you are not pregnant, get checked. ...Read more
