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

I took ec pill on 29th feb got periods on 7th feb (expected date) . Took ec pill again on 12th feb . Had irregular bleeding on 16th. Is it due to ec?

I took ec pill on 29th feb got periods on 7th feb (expected date) . Took ec pill again on 12th feb . Had irregular bleeding on 16th. Is it due to ec?

Probably the EC pill: Plan B or other EC pills can alter the menstrual bleeding for the cycle in which Plan B was taken, and sometimes the next cycle. One should be sure to check a home pregnancy test about 3 weeks after sex, because emergency contraception pills work most of the time, but not all the time. One should choose a Plan A (a reliable contraceptive method to use all the time), to avoid the need for EC pills. ...Read more

Possibly: Your periods could remain irregular for up to three months after stopping birth control pills. If you do not want to get pregnant and are sexually active, please use another effective method of contraception. ...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

Maybe not, but...: It can be hard to guess whether a woman is pregnant or not. A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period, or after having a "weird" period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. ...Read more

On Junel Fe 1/20 on the 3rd month. First period regular, second lighter, now none? Done with placebo week no period. Neg preg. Test. What's wrong?

On Junel Fe 1/20 on the 3rd month. First period regular, second lighter, now none? Done with placebo week no period. Neg preg. Test. What's wrong?

Low dose: The Junel Fe 1/20 has a very low dose of estrogen so there is very little stimulation for the uterine lining to grow.Little lining means little to slough off with your period thus periods become very light and it is common to skip periods.This is safe and normal and for some very desirable.If it bothers you, discuss a higher dose pill with your doctor.It might be the answer for you.Hope this helps ...Read more

Had unprote sex on 18 Mar & took Ella (ulipristal acetate) on 19 Mar. previous period started 24 Feb and end 7 March. neg pregnancy test, late period, any chances of preg?

Had unprote sex on 18 Mar & took Ella (ulipristal acetate) on 19 Mar. previous period started 24 Feb and end 7 March. neg pregnancy test, late period, any chances of preg?

Small chance: Irregular bleeding after taking a morning-after pill, like Plan B or Ella, (ulipristal acetate) is somewhat common. Some women get spotting or bleeding before the next period. Women may also have a heavier or lighter next period, or a period that is early or late. A pregnancy test can be done 3 weeks after taking a morning-after pill, to be sure the pill worked. A negative result means no pregnancy from 2-3 weeks ago. ...Read more

Had unprotected sex on 10thFeb,took postinar2 on 11thFeb got my menses on 19thFeb then had sex on 25th took postinar2 on 26 but no menses yet,am I ok?

Had unprotected sex on 10thFeb,took postinar2 on 11thFeb got my menses on 19thFeb then had sex on 25th took postinar2 on 26 but no menses yet,am I ok?

Maybe not: Why twice in 1 month? Emergency contraception (like Postinor 2 or Plan B) is for use in the rare instances of emergencies, not for use as a routine contraceptive. They are for emergencies, meaning they should be needed only 1, 2, or 3 times in an entire lifetime. If not wanting to get pregnant, and if having sex, always have a good primary contraceptive method (a Plan A) in place. ...Read more

Took planb on 1stjan, had kinda period on 8thjan.Again took planb on 14thjan &had kinda period on 21stjan. Pregnancy test says -ve, can I b pregnant?

See below: Plan b can make periods irregular. It sounds like you need to see your doctor to talk about some reliable methods of contraception. Taking Plan B so frequently will just mess up your cycles and isn't as effective as you would like it to be. ...Read more

Can I be pregnant?: It sure sounds like you are not pregnant. You did fail to mention in your question if your period was on time and of normal duration for you. If so then you cannot get pregnant the day before your period is due. ...Read more

Gingival tattoo: Sometimes in the process of doing a silver amalgam filling, small pieces of the excess filling can become embedded in the gum tissue, creating what your describing.
