The menstrual cycle begins with the shedding of the uterine lining, resulting in bleeding from the vagina. A few weeks later, one ovary releases an egg and the uterine lining thickens in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Pregnancy can occur at this stage if sperm fertilizes the egg. If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more

My period is extremely heavy and lasts about 10 days. i dont want to take birth control so what could i do to make it lighter and shorter?
To start...: First if this just started and you have been sexually active the first step is to get a pregnancy test. If this has been done already and negative then you would need lab testing(blood work) to check hormones issues which might be causing this problem. It all depends on what the cause of the prolonged periods is in order to decide what is the right treatment. See GYN specialist for this. ...Read more
I have heavy long periods due to the copper IUD that I recently got can I take a bcp pills to stop the heavy flow till my body adjusts to the c iud?
Iud: Heavy menses is common after insertion of the copper IUD. it is usually treated with reassurance. The bleeding usually lessens within a few months and many women adjust to the increase in their menses. However sometimes a short coarse of ibuprofen has been shown to lessen the bleeding.

I'm on the Depo-Provera to bleed less but sometimes i still bleed like my heavy flow i would normally have , what can I do so i don't ?
Depoprovera: There is not much you can do actually. Depoprovera is a very good contraceptive option for young patients but it has the side effects of bleeding. It works ( one of many thing it does) by removing the tissue inside your uterus and until that happens the bleeding will be unpredictable and sometimes heavy. ...Read more

Easy to remove it: Removal is so much easier than insertion. So much. Don't be afraid of the removal. And yes, your periods should calm down after removal. They won't be as good as periods you might have had while on birth control pills, but more like your own natural cycles. Good luck! ...Read more

Can the bcp sptintec make me infertile after being on it 3 years or will it just make it harder to get pregnant?
Neither: Birth control pills will not affect your fertility except while you are on them. They do not cause aging of ovaries, they dont cause uterine problems, etc. That being said. Women have changes to their body all the time. It is possible that a woman's body will chance while they are on the pills and they may not know it. Then when trying to get pregnant they find out. ...Read more
I removed my IUD in may and I been bleeding since is it normal and how long does it take to get pregnant.
Not normal: Did you have the IUD removed or did you personally find the string and pull it out? Either way, a MD exam may be needed to be sure that the cervix was not injured in the removal process. Once that issue is resolved then pregnancy can be attempted with a usual pregnancy rate of 85% in one year of unprotected intercourse assuming no male or female reproductive issues at your age. ...Read more

If your periods are irregular, hormonal interventions such as birth control pills or taking Progesterone monthly are commonly used to regulate periods. If your periods are irregular due to PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) then there are other medications that can be helpful ...Read more
