Levlen (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) birth control gave me suicidal thoughts, thrush (first time), no libido. Is Norimin better?

Side Efects: If your side effects were definitely due to the BC, than any other BC with a different type of hormonal combination etc. would be a better alternative. With your all your symptoms I would question whether they aware all indeed due to the BC. Be sure to follow-up with your Dr. and get assessed and possibly treated for an underlying depression that was brought out by the situation. Best wishes. ...Read more

On Depo-Provera provera (medroxyprogesterone) and norethin ACE for a cyst -- why won't my period stop?

On Depo-Provera provera (medroxyprogesterone) and norethin ACE for a cyst -- why won't my period stop?

Bleeding on pill?: If you are bleeding while on depo-provera, it may be due to a thin lining of your uterus. Consider asking your gyn for a pelvic sonogram and check this.

I am taking ovaral G for stopping my period.does ovulation takes place after stopping this norgesterel ethinyllostradiol. Planning for pregnancy?

Irregular periods&ovulation-no ovulation for past 3 months. Cd28 now and doctor prescribed me provera (medroxyprogesterone). What if my period comes naturally when taking?

Not natural: If you start your period after taking the provera (medroxyprogesterone), (medroxyprogesterone) then it would likely not be a 'natural' period. It would b a 'withdrawal bleed' induced by the provera (medroxyprogesterone). If you don't want to get pregnant, you should take a birth control pill to prevent pregnancy. The Provera (medroxyprogesterone) will induce a withdrawal bleed and prevent over thickening of the endometrium. It won't prevent or help cause pregnancy. ...Read more

They both have a week of placebo for the 4th week. I would recommend speaking to your doctor to see if this substitution is OK with them. ...Read more
