I started taking Heather Tablets Birth Control, Can you tell me how long will I continue to spot. I started them on Tuesday.

Can't say: Heather is a progestin only contraceptive. The progestins in pills provide the contraception.Estrogen is added for cycle control. Some women have normal periods on progestin only or mini-pills but most notice a change. The periods can be lighter, irregular, or less frequent. It varies from woman to woman and there is no way to predict what to expect in any one woman. Sorry I can't be of more help. ...Read more

I have been taking birth control pills for 4 months and I have stop for about 2 weeks now no pills. How long will it take to get pregnant.

Will get married on feb. Im on bc pill now. Wen shud i stop taking the pill to get pregnant by then?

Patience...: Get married first. Then decide whether or not to have children right away. If "yes", stop the birth control pills, and be sure to have sex once or twice a day during the most fertile days. Stopping the bc pills before getting married will indeed help one "get pregnant by then", but can easily "get pregnant too soon and not fit in the wedding gown". Patience is an important virtue for new parents. ...Read more
