I'm on jolivette birth control pill and take it at the same time every day. We also "pull out". My period is "late". Should I freak out?

Not unusual: Birth control pills are often used to help regulate periods, and frequently result in monthly menses in a woman who do not have regular menses.

Discuss any concerns with the prescribing doctor. ...Read more
I have been taking jolivette birth control since August and have not had a period since September. I have taken a home pregnancy test, it was negative. I don't know if I should be worried or not. I have taken the pills correctly except for one missed dose
Pregnancy unlikely: Pregnancy is very unlikely in normal women who take birth control pills at the same time each day (plus or minus an hour or two). For those women who can't stop worrying about pregnancy, they can buy a big box of pregnancy tests, and just do a test every 1-2 months if they are having sex with somebody. That way, there will be no chance they will accidentally miss a pregnancy. ...Read more

I'm currently taking penicillin VK and on the birth control called jolivette. I had unprotected sex, will taking plan b be effectiv?
Not needed: It is common to hear that all antibiotics will prevent birth-control pills from working. In reality most common antibiotics such as Penicillin, Erythromycin, Zithromax, and Ampicillin don't change the effectiveness of OCPs much. Less common antibiotics such as Rifampin have been shown to cause problems. But use is uncommon. You probably don't need to take Plan B. Best wishes! ...Read more

I have irregular cycles after birth control no period for a year. I had menstrual like cramping for 3 days only on my left side then went away. Why?
Not quite normal: While it's normal for you to expect to have irregular cycles for several to 6 months after stopping birth control, a year seems a little excessive. The cramping you are feeling is likely your body trying to go through the motions of a cycle and you could see some spotting, but I would recommend sitting down with and talking to your doctor about options going out from here. ...Read more

If done sooner, a positive result is likely real but a negative result may be due to testing too soon. ...Read more
