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 have had unprotected sex and wondering if I can take the combined pill microgynon 30 as an emergency contraceptive pill?
Emergency contracept: In theory yes - since they both contain 150micrograms of Levonorgestrel with the microgynon also containing 30 mcg of ethynil estradiol. However, the side effect profile will be different than Plan B since there is the estradiol component. In a pinch you could use the microgynon but I know of no studies showing the efficacy. You need to use it before 72 hours. Good luck.
I'm taking the Microgynon contraceptive pill, if I took the Fat Metaboliser pill from Holland and Barrett, will one affect the other?
Drug interaction: This has not been studied. See your obgyn to figure out a weight loss plan that will not interfere with your pill.
I took my microgynon contraceptive pill but I was sick an hour later, I didn't take my next pill for another 24 hours as usual. Could I be pregnant?
Take the test: If you want to know if you are pregnant, take a test. In today's world you do not need to wonder if you are pregnant or not based on symptoms. Pregnancy tests are available at any pharmacy and in minutes you will have your answer. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period.
If I'm taking the Microgynon contraceptive pill, is it okay if I took the Fat Metaboliser Diet Pill from Holland and Barrett along with it?
Diet pills: I don't recommend diet pills. I do recommend better nutrition and increased exercise. By increasing fiber in your diet and decreasing fat and simple sugars work wonders, and is better for you. The fiber can curb your appetite. Diet pills may have severe side effects, plus when you stop them and your behavior has not changed, you will be right back where you started.See 1 more doctor answer
Will taking nitrofurantoin interfere with microgynon contraceptive pill - will it increase the chances of pregnancy? Thanks!
Remind yourself: Put an alarm on your phone or tape the pack to the bathroom mirror to remind yourself to take them. They only work as well as you remember to take them. Good luck. Reply if you have specific questions.
Is it okay to take Pau d'Arco and birth control pills at the same time? (Specifically Microgynon 30)
No problem: Pau d'Arco is a supplement rather than a drug and shouldn't have any effect on your birth control. Make sure you take your birth control at the same time everyday and don't skip any pills.
Irregular pill bleed: This pill has the same hormone dose in each pill, 30 mcg of the estrogen, so usually this recipe does not have a lot of irregular bleeding if you are taking it regularly for 21 days with a 7 day period week. Except in the first few months, when it is common to have some irregular bleeding. After that if you get new irregular bleeding, you should check for infection, pregnancy, medication problems.
Possibly: When using an oral hormone based pill, the penicillin or tetracycline class of antibiotics may change how the contraceptive is absorbed, lowering blood levels and increasing the risk of pregnancy or break through bleeding. Do not stop using the oc, but use a backup form of birth control until the antibiotic course is complete and you're on your next pack.
Maybe: Anything that interferes with absorbing a medicine can affect it. If the cleanse extrem moves things through your gi tract faster than normal, you may not absorb the amount of the pill you need to. Would use back up condoms or just skip the cleanse extrem which is bogus anyhow.See 1 more doctor answer
What to do if I had protected sex but still I took emergency contraceptive pill within 30 hrs. What to do if I had bleeding after 8 days 2?
Normal: Emergency contraceptive disrupts your usual cycle to encourage uterine lining sloughing (=period), so this is to be expected. May be more or less than usual, but if severe, then contact your Gyn for eval.
Did you have a: Weight change? The different oral contraceptives can effect women differently. The only way to really know for you personally is to see how you responded over the last six month.
Stemetil and the OCP: Unlikely it would reduce the effectiveness of the pill, but it is metabolized by the liver which can make the liver metabolize pill hormones faster, so to be absolutely safe use a pill hormone recipe that is higher dose or does not need the liver to create the active form of the progestin, such as levonorgestrel, and you could consider continuous use of the hormones. Talk to your doctor as well.
