Birth Control Pills (Definition)

Also known as oral contraceptives, birth control pills are highly effective oral medications that use hormones to prevent pregnancy.

How to get rid of nausea due to anxiety after stopping birth control pill and how long will it take to feel normal again?

It depends: If you are so anxious about becoming pregnant after stopping the pill, either get back on it or take something else to prevent pregnancy.

In that case, perhaps a pregnancy test is indicated. ...Read more

Will fluconazole make birthcontrol reclipsen not work? If so how long after the last pill will the  birthcontrol start working 100%. Like normal?!

Possibly: The absorption or metabolism (breakdown) of oral hormonal contraceptives can be impacted (decreased effectiveness) by fluconazole. This would be the same as missing a dose (or pill) during the cycle. Therefore, use a backup form of birth control until you have finished the antifungal, and have started a new pack of oc. ...Read more

Can you tell me more about seasonique birth control? And how long will it take to get pregnant after not taking it for 2 weeks now?

Could be any time: Some people even get pregnant while on the medication, so it is difficult to tell when you will. Seasonique, like other ocps, suppresses ovulation and thus prevents pregnancy from occuring. When you are off of it, you could get pregnant whenever you ovulate, provided there are sperms around to fertilize. Generally it takes longer to get pregnant the longer you have been on the pill. Good luck. ...Read more
