Normal period <=7d: Normal periods should last 7 days or less. If you are bleeding longer than this, there are many possible causes, but this should be investigated.

Depends....: Everyone is different - with oral medications ( those you take in a pill form by mouth), there is a quicker excretion than any of the injectable or implantable types, 2-3 weeks should be sufficient for the complete excretion of the medication. ...Read more

Suppressing : Suppressing menstruation during breast-feeding is called lactational amenorrhea. Studies have shown that lactational amenorrhea for prevention of pregnancy works best when there is unrestricted breastfeeding without regard to schedules, resulting in six to eight breastfeedings a day will suppress ovulation. In addition, allowing your baby to feed at night takes advantage of the peak of the milk-making hormones that suppress ovulation, which are highest between 1 A.M. And 6 A.M. Nighttime nursing is important to the suppression of fertility. Avoid using supplemental bottles and pacifiers - all of baby's sucking should be at the breast, for comfort as well as food. Delay the introduction of solid foods until age six months or later. Solids should provide additional nutrition, not substitute for breast feedings. If you have had your period, be aware that you can become pregnant and that at this point, you should use some form of birth control if you want to avoid becoming pregnant. ...Read more

I did 2.5 months on Accutane. My doctor wants me to stop because of my last blood test. I was starting to clear. Is this lost? My acne will comeback?

How can you?: Start over. How can you ask this question without specific information? The answer depends entirely on the DETAILS of the blood test. In fact too many tests are done on people taking this. In 30 years I have never stopped Accutane after a blood test. Sometimes it is advisable to alter a diet or take a med because of elevated triglycerides or LDL cholesterol. These are people with genetic lipid abn ...Read more

After : After stopping depo-provera, most women start to ovulate within 3 to 4 months, however, for some women, it can take up to a year. You may want to have your doctor check a pregnancy test prior to starting a new hormonal method of birth control just in case. In the meantime, make sure you use another form of birth control such as a condom to protect yourself from getting pregnant. ...Read more

Hello

What do I do to make it stop? Sh

Starting OCP's: Starting a birth control pill on the first day of your period is fine, although many doctors want patients to wait until their period has progressed a few days before starting OC's. Your lining most likely did not shed as quickly when you started the pill. Your periods should be in sync with the pill pack by the second or third pack at the latest. If bleeding gets heavier, see your doctor. ...Read more

I just started glidess fe 1/20 after being on Depo-Provera for two years how long can it take for me to have my period again ?

It may take a few : It may take a few months after having been on the Progesterone for so long. I would guess by 2 months, however, that you will have a normal cycle. Don't worry though. Being on birth control is good for your health, in addition to providing pregnancy protection. It lowers your risk of ovarian and uterine cancer. Hang in there! ...Read more

How do I stop my period when it has already started please?

How do I stop my period when it has already started please?

Patience or OCP's: Your period will stop as your estrogen level increases with normal progression into the new menstrual cycle. One the period starts there will be blood and tissue that must be passed before the period ends. You could potentially shorten the period by taking estrogen - that would require starting the birth control pill to attain an estrogen level adequate to overcome the menstrual bleeding. ...Read more
