Started brith contol pills mid-cycle, when am I protected?

Started brith contol pills mid-cycle, when am I protected?

Depends: It depends on two main factors. One is the type of pill and the other is the stage of your menstrual cycle. Fir combination pills, if you start it with the first 5 days of the start of your menstrual cycle, you should be safe, and would need a secondary protection like condom or a diaphragm if started the pill later. Fir progesterone only pill, you need 48 hrs for those to be effective. Be safe:) ...Read more

Possibly: If there is any chance a woman can be pregnant, it is best to get a blood pregnancy test to how she is not. Women can bleed irregularly with starting a birth control pill. If you did not use back up contraception (condoms and spermacide) it is best to get a pregnancy test. ...Read more

What can I do?, had sex while on placebo birth control pills, started new pack next day, am i pregnant?

What can I do?, had sex while on placebo birth control pills, started new pack next day, am i pregnant?

Most likely not.: If a woman has taken her pills without missing any, she should not be able to become pregnant while on the placebo pills. See your gynecologist if you have any questions about how to take them, when you are protected, or if you are concerned about being pregnant. ...Read more

Mirena (levonorgestrel) removed 4/12/13 nd on birth control pills. Havnt got to the placebo pills yet nd strtd period las sunday. Normal? Still bleeding. What to do?

Mirena (levonorgestrel) removed 4/12/13 nd on birth control pills. Havnt got to the placebo pills yet nd strtd  period las sunday. Normal? Still bleeding. What to do?

IUD and OCP: It depends on when in your cycle you removed it. The Mirena (levonorgestrel) makes the lining thin and starting the birth control pills may make it thin for a while until your body adjusts. I would monitor the bleeding and see your doctor if it still remains heavy, . ...Read more

Unlikely: It's unlikely that you could be pregnant with those precautions. Take a pregancy test in 2 and 4 weeks to be sure. Resume your OCP as planned. In the future, if you forget your OCP, use a secondary method such as a condom for a few weeks. That is safer and easier on your body than using Plan B as a back up. ...Read more

Got provera (medroxyprogesterone) withdrawl bleed on Sunday, then started bc pill again...following Sunday got period! Continue pill pack? Why period now?

Yes continue pills: you may continue to have breakthrough or unpredictable bleeding while taking the pill. Continue to use birth control pills as prescribed. not all bleeding is "your period" , and you do not get a " period" on the pill. bleeding that occurs on hormonal contraception (like the birth control pill , ring or patch) is a withdrawal bleed if during the placebo pills, or breakthrough bleed other times. ...Read more

Was originally on Loestrin generic bcp and recently switched to non-generic Loestrin pill. My period came 2nd wk and 3rd wk. Preg? Never missed pill

Not necessarily preg: You can have spotting for three months whenever you change contraceptives. Did you take any antibiotics or steroids that might alter the hormone levels? It never hurts to run a home pregnancy test for reassurance. ...Read more

Sex?: I'm not exactly sure when u had sex during this window, but let's say once a week? Also, we don't know when you will have your next period. Anytime you mess up the pills, you should use condoms for a month to prevent pregnancy. Take a pregnancy test a week for 2 more weeks, if it's still negative and you are taking the pill and using condoms, you are negative. ...Read more

Just started taking birth control, forgot two pills and had unprotected sex?

Use backup method: When a woman forgets 2 birth control pills it is recommended to take the pill twice a day for 2 days to catch up, and to use a back up method for the rest of the pill pack. If you had sex on a day you forgot a pill you're still protected, but the rest of the pill pack you may not be, depending on how many pills were missed. More questions - check with your doctor. ...Read more

Breakthrough bleed: Unscheduled bleeding is a common side effect of any birth control method but very common on low dose pills. It usually corrects itself in a few days or over a couple of cycles. If not then you will need to schedule a visit to discuss changing brands or changing methods and make sure nothing else is wrong. Other than being annoying for you it is not harmful. ...Read more
