Is Good To Take Can I Take Secure Contraceptive Pill Whilst Breast Feeding
Hi my baby is 10 months old. I stated taking the contraceptive pill called Yaz is it safe during breast feeding? The doctor gave it. Think she forgot that I still breast feed her. Will it harm her in any way? Any bad effects on her?
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
Am breast feeding mom, my baby is 14 month, I never used contraceptive, for how long would be safe not to use contraceptive, I will still brestfeed?
Left breast feels bruised, female 28years old. Not on any tablets or contraceptive. Not breast feeding. What could be causing this dull ache? Thankyou
Breast pain or mastalgia is usually described as a dull ache. It can be cyclical and a response to hormonal changes or non cyclical and without known cause.
When in doubt, a good breast exam can be reassuring. Hormonal pain tends to be both sides and on the outer aspect, not associated with lumps or cysts, and lasts about 5-7 days a month. ...Read more

Yes: Birth control pills do not affect the quality of breast milk. However, they can diminish breast milk production. Progestin only methods like the minipill, Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) injections, implants, and iuds do not affect breast milk production as much and may be a better option for you if you are breastfeeding. Discuss all options with your doctor. ...Read more
How do you start birth control after pregnancy? Breast feeding & got the mini pill, but II heard that women sometimes don't start period so soon.
Can start right now: It is safe to start birth control right away after a pregnancy - you don't have to wait for a period. Just start with the first pill in the pack, and it will regulate your cycle. Remember, with the mini pill, it is important to take your pill around the same time every day, and to switch to stronger birth control when you stop nursing/pumping, or slow down to nursing/pumping only twice a day. ...Read more

In women in whom it happens, it will tend to happen on any combination pill. A combination pill is one that has both estrogen ; Progesterone in it. Most bcps are combination pills. Cosmetic surgery is really the only predictable method for breast enhancement. ...Read more
Took emergency contraceptive pill 3 months ago, missed 3rd period, breasts been swelling for a week, two negative pregnancy results. Is it normal?
Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.

I had unprotected sex but took all my birth control pills correctly, I had sex again and used emergency contraceptive but my breasts hurt, what does?
High hormone levels: Emergency bc and regular birth control have hormones. Too high levels of hormones cause side effects. Sounds to me as if you don't trust your pills. If u take every day, if you miss. Consider long acting options of iud and implant. They're the most effective and easy! ...Read more
Hi, im looking to go back on the contraceptive pill mainly for breast growth and weight gain. I was wondering if dianette and yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) do this?
Oral birth control: At 18, your weight and breast size have not reached normal proportions of adulthood. Oral contraceptives in low doses (such as Yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) and others) will not effectively change your breast size or weight. You can try, but don't be disappointed if you do not see results to your liking. If you are sexually active, the "benefits" are limited to very secure birth control. ...Read more
Poorly: It can suppress ovulation in some women for an unpredictable length of time. Your body can and will ovulate at some point about two weeks before your first period, and you can become pregnant if exposed with that first ovulation. That can lead you to believe you are not pregnant when you are. ...Read more

I'm still nighttime breast feeding my 3 1/2 year old daughter and she has NO desire to stop anytime soon but I'm certainly done and would like my milk to dry up to start to discourage her. Will a combo birth control accomplish this? Any tips? My 2 other d
Your call: By 3 a kid can certainly understand your spoken communication. You need to tell her its time she quit being a baby and mean it. Abandon any feelings of guilt. She will not be scarred if you do this. The only way for your body to stop making milk is to stop stimulating the breast by feeding her. Find an alternate non-feeding activity you can do at night to transition her, like reading to her, but do it ...Read more

I'm breastfeeding mom, when should I start to take the oral contraceptive pill (daphne) if I haven't got my period yet since I delivered 3mos ago?
Seems very unnatural: Not a natural thing to do. Biotin deficiency is rare, but can occur in persons with genetic mutations, on long-term antibiotics or anti-convulsants, or who eat a lot of raw egg whites. There is no good evidence that this easily available, over-the-counter supplement is the magic potion for anything. Biotin is safe to take, but 5000 mcg per day is over 30 times the usual dose, so is not advisable. ...Read more

How long I can still take cerrazette pill (opp suitable for breast feeding mothers) and now I stopped breast feeding 3months ago?
Minipill use: It is preferred if you use a Progesterone only minipill for contraception that you are breast feeding every 2-4 hours to maintain its effectiveness. If not, then switch to a combination ocp for best protection frm pregnancy if you are able to use this.

I had my period almost two weeks ago and now I'm spotting. I had a baby 177 days (5mo4wks) ago and I take "mini" pill and I'm breast feeding. Normal?
Breakthru bleeding: Between periods, and other type of menstrual irregularity, is very common with the "mini" pill and should not be reason for concern. This may change as you continue to take the mini pill. It is important to be as consistent as possible in taking the mini pill at the same time every day to ensure maximum protection from pregnancy. ...Read more
I had unprotected sex two days after ovulation, since am breast feeding I didn't take any after pills, how can I prevent possibilities of pregnancy?
Nothing: There is nothing you can do a this point to prevent the pregnancy. There are contraceptive methods breastfeeding moms can utilize, but it is too late for that with this incident. How do you know you were ovulating, as this is usually quite irregular during nursing? The only way to guarantee no pregnancy would have been abstaining around ovulation. Now you just have to wait and see... ...Read more

It is difficult to get everything you need at this point just from your diet, so a vitamin is a must so you don't long-term weaken your body and bones. Take to boost both you and baby! ...Read more
