How long will the nausea effect from my birth control pills last?

Give it time.: The nausea associated with the birth control pill is often due to the estrogen. This should go away after a month or so. If after 3 months you are still having problems then it makes sense to change pills to a lower estrogen dose or consider an alternative.
You can also try taking the pill at a different time of the day, such as before bed time or taking the pill with some food. ...Read more

Birth Control Pills (Definition)

Also known as oral contraceptives, birth control pills are highly effective oral medications that use hormones to prevent pregnancy. There are two main types of birth control pills: one with estrogen and progestin (also known as the combination pill) and one with just progestin. The two main ways they prevent pregnancy are: 1) The hormones thicken the cervical mucous, which keeps sperm from entering the uterus on their way to the egg; and 2) By maintaining a level of hormone in the blood stream that prevents the ...Read more

I've been having morning nausea and on and off spotting for the last week, I'm currently taking birth control pills, is it possible I could be pregnant?

Not likely: If a woman has been taking her birth control pills correctly, every day about the same time each day, then it would be unlikely for her to get pregnant. If she missed or was late for pills then pregnancy is possible, and it's worth getting a pregnancy test. If you are concerned check a pregnancy test - if negative check with your clinic. ...Read more

Missing pills: Missing birth control pills commonly causes a period to start early, and can cause other menstrual irregularity. Anytime you miss more than one pill in a pack of pills, you should stop taking the pills, discard that pack, and wait until after your next period starts and then start a new pack of pills. If you are concerned about possibility of pregnancy do a pregnancy test, but it is unlikely. ...Read more

If I get nauseas and headaches on my birth control pills dos that mean I need more or less estrogen?

Difficult pharmacogn: Sometimes the dose-response relationship for hormones is not linear but complex - such as a horseshoe-shape, where side effects are associated with low and high doses, but not optimum doses. So no generalization for you is helpful, unfortunately. Dose titration experi-ments with your doctor's help should be able to clarify this. ...Read more

Yaz causing heart problems? I am taking Yaz birth control pills and lately I have noticed my heart beating abnormally. Sometimes when I lie down I can feel it beating over my entire body, sometimes skipping a beat. I often experience nausea along with t

Not likely: This sounds as if you're uncomfortable, and you should discuss this with your primary doctor, but not likely due to yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol). Nausea may be present in first 1-3 months of yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol). Try taking in the evening, but if it is occurring the first few months, it's likely to get better. Discuss benefits/risks of Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) with your doctor. ...Read more

So I started new birth control pills 2 weeks ago. Are these common side effects? - nausea, body aches, stomach cramps, headaches, ovaries aching, etc

Maybe: It is possible it is from the birth control. The only way to know for sure would be to do 1 of 2 things: continue and see what happens, or stop medicaiton until after period, see what happens, and try restarting. If it happens again then it is the medication. If you get better it wasn't. Use back up protection in meantime. ...Read more

How long do birth control pills last in your system before you take another pill on a new day?

Pharmacology of BC: Tri-Sprintec contains norgestimate and ethinyl estradiol. These compounds have their own half-lives of elimination. After you take this pill, the peak concentrations are seen around 2 hours, however, there are also active metabolites that last in your system that have half lives varying from 17-36 hours. Small amounts then persist for 4-5 times the half life.

Is it normal for periods to last longer and be heavier taking birth control pills for the first time for a week, I also have endometriosis?

Long Menses on BCP's: In using bcp's for two to three months in most instances periods become lighter in flow and shorter duration. In your case, the opposite occurred. I suspect that the cause is your endometriosis! most likely the hormones have initially increased the abnormal tissue resulting in increased flow. You can either continue the bcp's several more cycles, or change to luperon to suppress your cycles. ...Read more

I just started a new brand and pack of birth control pills while I am on my period. Does the period last longer since this has happened?

New bcp's: Most oral bcp's are now "low dose" types, so the week on placebo's is relatively light. The important part to remember is to start the "new" bcp pack at "day five" after your last active pill of the last type of bcp. It is not necessary to take all seven of the placebos, and "day five" will help insure an ovulation will not occur. ...Read more
