Hormones for: some women can cause and increased appetite. If you are on the pill and dont watch your calories you will gain weight. If you are not on the pill, and you dont watch your calories, then you will gain weight.

Pregnant or side effects?Am sexually active, and have nausea, dizziness, etc.On mononessa, faithful taker, every night at 10, never missed.2nd inactive pill

Maybe: You are pregnant until proven otherwise- get a serum pregnancy test- if negative, call your physician if these symptoms worsen or are unresolved. Remember, if you are sexually active at age 16, you are under the age of legal consent in many states. I would strongly recommend no sexual activity until you are married. To do otherwise only sets you up for a boat-load of trouble. ...Read more

See below.: The blue pills are "active" and contain hormones to prevent pregnancy/regulate cycles; the green pills are "inactive"- they are there to keep you in the habit of taking the medication regularly and not skipping doses, since it is so important you don't miss a dose of birth control if you want it to work.

Was on Microgestin until 21st. 23rd pd started. went to gyno 25th and got mononessa.started today. boyfriend gets here tomorrow.am I still protected?

OCP's: Did you start the pills on the 25th? If you started on the 25th, then you are still protected as you were pill free for four days only. However, since they are new, I would use backup protection, just to be sure, such as condoms until 7 pills have been taken. ...Read more

Its the third month of MonoNessa and I've been breakthrough bleeding for a week and a half, is this normal?

Bleeding: Take your pills at the same time every day. Did you miss any pills? Continue taking them even though you have had break through bleeding. It can take up to 6 months to finally end up with the pattern of bleeding you will have on these pills . If the bleeding still persists your provider may change your pills and do any testing necessary to evaluate the bleeding. Patience is a virtue. ...Read more
