Switching from Depo-Provera to lo loestrin fe I have missed two days the first week starting will my Depo-Provera back me up since I missed 2 pills?

Switching from Depo-Provera to lo loestrin fe I have missed two days the first week starting will my Depo-Provera back me up since I missed 2 pills?

No: Your Depo-Provera is not a reliable method since it has been a while since receiving it. You need to use a back up method (condoms) until you start your next pill pack. Try using the mobile apps to help you remember to take your pills. Also, I recommend taking your pills with something you do each day, like brush your teeth. ...Read more

It's a week before my period and I have brown discharge. It doesn't smell or itch or anything. I am on birth control and have been for over 3 years, I did miss a pill but I took two the next day. This is the first time this has happened to me, is this norm

Not unusual: Women taking the pill often have breakthrough spotting before their period starts. A brown discharge is simply old blood mixed with mucus. A woman's reproductive system is a very delicate and complex apparatus. Many things can affect its function. Emotional stress, change in sleep patterns, etc can alter your normal cycle. I wouldn't be alarmed, just keep track of things so that you can accurately describe changes to your doctor when you see them next ...Read more

I started birth control but missed the first day so I took two pills on day 2. Is this bad?

I started birth control but missed the first day so I took two pills on day 2. Is this bad?

Starting bcp: It's fine to double up once in awhile. It's just not good to make a habit of it. Sometimes it helps to keep your pills next to your toothbrush since you already have a good habit of brushing regularly, I would hope! That way you associate the two habits and it's no longer a burden to remember to take your pill. If you forget a lot, use a second method! ...Read more

Missed a bc pill by a few hours and started bleeding two days later. Stopped after a week and now bleeding heavy again a day later. Should I worry?

NO-continue: You are having breakthrough bleeding: proceed to you next pack of pills and don't suddnly stop or skip pills- this will definitely cause bleeding. It may take 2-3 packs of pills to normalize your cycles. ...Read more

Sure: Women who take their birth control pills INCORRECTLY do have a higher chance of getting pregnant than do women who take their pills correctly. That means a woman who doesn't take her pills correctly should add a second method of contraception, such as condoms. She can ask her doctor about other methods such as an IUD, which needs no daily pill-taking. ...Read more

My cycle is on & I still have a week of active pills. I been on birth control for three years & I missed two days but made those up. Is this normal?

Breakthrough bleed: Sounds like breakthrough bleeding which occurs when you have bleeding at unscheduled times while on the pill. Often things get back to normal the next cycle. If not then schedule a visit to discuss changing brands or changing birth control methods. This is very common. Other than being annoying it is not dangerous. ...Read more

Two weeks after initiating BCP using quick start method, I had unprotected sex (used withdrawal and no ejaculation). A few days prior I missed a pill and doubled up the next day. It's now 4 months since this incident in question but I'm worried that I'm p

Are you worried that: You're pregnant? Have you missed any menstrual periods? Have you taken a home pregnancy test? If you used the "quick start method" when initiating BCP, 's, you should have been protected against pregnancy at the time of the incident. While there appears to be little risk of taking BCP's early in pregnancy, continuing to take them if you think you could be pregnant is a not a good idea. ...Read more

Recently missed a period by 25 days and ended up having a period two weeks ago and while bathing the first day of that period I had a flesh like tissu?

Recently missed a period by 25 days and ended up having a period two weeks ago and while bathing the first day of that period I had a flesh like tissu?

Two possibilities,: Altho, without examining the discharge, these are educated guesses If you use tampons, a small piece can remain in the vagina and, when it comes out, it could like "fleshy". If you're sexually active, the other possibility, since your period was late, is a very early miscarriage. At that stage, the embryo & placenta are very tiny and could appear like a bit of flesh.

I am on beyaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol and levomefolate). I missed two days in the third week. Can I not take two pills today and two tomorrow to get back on track? The packet is confusing.

I am on beyaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol and levomefolate). I missed two days in the third week. Can I not take two pills today and two tomorrow to get back on track? The packet is confusing.

You are correct: To make up for two missed pills (in any week), you take two pills for two nights. I would probably use a back up method this week, until you've had your period and started a new pack. ...Read more

Breakthrough bleed: Breakthrough bleeding (bleeding at the wrong time) is very common on birth control. It happens in about 1/3 of users. Its no big deal and usually self corrects over time. If you are not satisfied or it continues to happen then consider using a different birth control method. It is a common side effect and does not mean something is wrong or that the pill is not working. ...Read more

This: This question is 5 days old so you have likely made a decision as to whether to start a new pack or continue the old one. However, for the future, you did the right thing. If you miss a pill you should restart as soon as you realize it. With low dose pills, missing one or two days can trigger bleeding in midcycle as a result of the hormone withdrawal. If more than 2 days go by without pills you should utilize a back up method such as condoms and/or the "morning after" pill to increase your protection against unwanted pregnancy. ...Read more

I had a light period two weeks ago exactly. Now I'm very lightly bleeding again. I notice it when I wipe that how light. I've been on the pill for four years but tend to miss days and I've been sexually active. Any idea what's going on?

I had a light period two weeks ago exactly. Now I'm very lightly bleeding again. I notice it when I wipe that how light. I've been on the pill for four years but tend to miss days and I've been sexually active. Any idea what's going on?

I can say one thing: You either need to be prepared to become pregnant or you need much better sexual safety behavior. That said, it can be one of the things you bring up at an OBGYN exam to discover the cause of your unusual cycle. Please take yourself more seriously. It is a matter of health and adult responsibility. Best! ...Read more

Miss 3 pills in first week and had sex without pulling out Period ended 5 days ago what are the chances I could get pregnant?

Miss 3 pills in first week and had sex without pulling out Period ended 5 days ago what are the chances I could get pregnant?

Likely very low: If you have had your period than the chances of being pregnant are very low. You cannot be preg after having a period. But in the future you might need another form of birth control. I would recommend you talk to your doctor about and IUD or an implantable form of birth control. Both an IUD or an implantable work for over 3 or more years and you don't have to remember everyday to take a pill. ...Read more

I'm on sprintec. I missed the 1st two pills. And was 12 hours late taking one in the second week. I've been very active with my boyfriend. Chances?

Use Plan B: If you have missed one pill you simply take two the next day. If you missed two pills in a row you should take Plan B if intercourse was within 72 hours. Continue taking your pill and use condoms until your next period. Take a pregnancy test 10 days after unprotected sex. Consider an easier birth control method like an iud for the future. ...Read more

Hi, a couple of weeks ago I was silly and forgot and missed two of my microgyon pills. This happened on the thursday and friday, on my saturday I star?

Use condoms: You would want to take two pills on the day you remember. Because you have forgotten more than two pills, I recommend a backup form of birth control (condoms) just in case your body is going to ovulate. ...Read more
