Tell an adult: So sorry you had to go through such a traumatic event.
Please seek medical attention asap, so you can get tested for STDs (most counties have free STD Clinics) and referred for counseling (most counties have rape crisis centers with free counseling). Just because you were not physically assaulted, if you were forced to have sex - you were sexually assaulted. U can call 1.800.656.HOPE. Take Care ...Read more

Does taking birth control pills over a long period of time, say 10 years or more, really hurt your sex drive?

Does taking birth control pills over a long period of time, say 10 years or more, really hurt your sex drive?

No: No. There is no research that shows this and it is not a common complaint. But I have heard it multiple times. I wish I had a better answer but probably not, libido is a very difficult thing to attribute to 1 thing. ...Read more

Been on birth control for 4 years. Had unprotected sex the night before period started. Went through cycle still taking pills. Am I pregnant?

Been on birth control for 4 years. Had unprotected sex the night before period started. Went through cycle still taking pills. Am I pregnant?

Probably not, but...: A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred). 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. If a woman gets her normal regular period month after month, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed. ...Read more

Pill+unprotected sex: If you were using the pill everyday then "unprotected sex" is contradictory. So get a pregnancy test and use it to clear up the conundrum. ...Read more

I haven't missed my period. I haven't had unprotected sex. I have been on birth control off and on for 5 years. But I have been feeling nauseous.?

Having protected sex, using spermicide condoms, period is 1 day late, not on birth control but using condoms, my chances of pregnancy, 16 years old.

Test don't Guess: If you want to check do a home pregnancy test. Know also that stress can alter the period cycle by a few days. Regular period cycles can be between 28-35 days. If yours is out of the time frame check with a urine test. ...Read more

If I just recently quit my birth control that I've been on for years and had my period then had unprotected sex does this make m me more succeptable to getting pregnant?

If I just recently quit my birth control that I've been on for years and had my period then had unprotected sex does this make m me more succeptable to getting pregnant?

You: You could very possibly get pregnant in that situation. When women go off of birth control, they typically start ovulating in 2-3 months, but can definitely ovulate sooner. So pregnancy is definitely a possibility. Your periods may be irregular for awhile after stopping oral contraceptives, but if you have any suspicion that you are pregnant then take a test. ...Read more

Pelvic pain: Pelvic pain is a complex issue with many possible causes from the various organs in the pelvis. See an Obgyn if the pain does not resolve and Ibuprofen is not helping. The morning after pill is not needed if you are already on birth control. ...Read more

2 years on 28 day cycle birth control. Period ended saturday forgot to take pill sunday, and had sex today, wednesday. Am I at high risk of pregnancy?

If no pill >1 week: If you are off your pill for more than 1 week (placebo pills don't count) then you are at high risk of pregnancy. I suggest getting plan b. However, if you only missed sunday, but took the others from monday to wednesday, you are at lower risk. Good luck. ...Read more

Iv lost my sex drive could it be from being on the birth control Depo-Provera for a little over 3 years. I haven't had a period in 3 years?

See your doctor: These symptoms can only be adequately diagnosed only after a thorough evaluation by your doctor. This may include labs and other satudies. Once all of the information is in, your doctor can let you know what's going on, and what to do to help you. ...Read more

No birth control in 2 years, I'm 20 years old & My period this month was 17- 21st. I had unprotected sex the 27th. Likeliness of pregnancy?

No birth control in 2 years, I'm 20 years old & My period this month was 17- 21st. I had unprotected sex the 27th. Likeliness of pregnancy?

No guarantees: Ovulation, or your most fertile time of the month, is typically 14 days after the start of your previous period. Sounds like you had unprotected sex about day 10, which is very risky, given normal variability and the viability of sperm. It is impossible to estimate a percentage chance, but there's a good chance you were too early for ovulation. You may also have just hit your fertile zone. HPT. ...Read more

I am 26 years old on birth control only one ovary I had un protected sex during my last period and have now missed my period 3 negative pregnancy test?

Likely not pregnant: Pregnancy tests are quite accurate. Since you are on birth-control and the test was negative, odds are, you aren't pregnant. There are many other causes of a missed period besides pregnancy. For example, sometimes your birth control, stress or dieting can make you miss periods. To be on the safe side, repeat the pregnancy test in about a week. Best wishes! ...Read more

I have the pregnancy symptoms but have been on birth control and three tests have come back negative, what is wrong with me? I am 17 years old, I got the birth control shot in january and have been having sex with my boyfriend. I missed my last period,

I have the pregnancy symptoms but have been on birth control and three tests have come back negative, what is wrong with me? I am 17 years old, I got the birth control shot in january and have been having sex with my boyfriend. I missed my last period,

I: I am glad that you had pregnancy testing. Hormone fluctuations, either from pregnancy, stress, weight changes, or for unknown reasons, can cause similar symptoms. If you have had ongoing symptoms however, you may need an evaluation. Be sure you are eating a healthy diet and are at a healthy weight (not too high or too low), as that can help stabilize hormone levels. ...Read more

Had sex on 1st day of my period (9/17). On birth control pills for years. Now 2 weeks before my period, I have swollen breasts and have been experiencing cramping. Possible preg? Have a negative preg test so far.

Had sex on 1st day of my period (9/17). On birth control pills for years. Now 2 weeks before my period, I have swollen breasts and have been experiencing cramping. Possible preg? Have a negative preg test so far.

There are 2 reasons: That unlikely that you're pregnant. First is that you're unlikely to get pregnant during your period, especially the first day. Second, you've been on birth control for years. On the other hand, a pregnancy test this soon is likely to be negative even if you did conceive. In your case, swollen breasts and cramping are probably from random hormone fluctuations rather than pregnancy. Dr. Anne. ...Read more

Last month on feb 27 I had protected sex, & the 19th of this month I was planned to start my period, I never did. Also been on birth control for 3 year?

What is the concern?: If you are on birth control and using it correctly your chance of getting pregnant would be extremely low. When taken correctly birth control pills are very effective at preventing pregnancy? It is not unusual to not bleed sometimes when taking birth control. If you are worried you are pregnant take a test. ...Read more

I am 17 I've been using my birth control for almost a year now and my period was happening on time every 28 days and would last 5 days. I haven't had sex in months since me and my boyfriend broke up and my period is now 11 days early and it is lasting way

I am 17 I've been using my birth control for almost a year now and my period was happening on time every 28 days and would last 5 days. I haven't had sex in months since me and my boyfriend broke up and my period is now 11 days early and it is lasting way

The key question: Is whether you are still taking the pills? It would be very unusual for your period to become so irregular while taking them. Perhaps you stopped oral contraceptives when you and your boyfriend broke up. Then this irregular pattern would not be unusual, especially in a young woman. Best option: return to the prescribing doc for evaluation/re-prescription of the pill to once again regular hormones. ...Read more

Haven't had a period post birth control for over a year. Started getting cramps 1 day ago with no flow just spotting after sex. What's going on?

Haven't had a period post birth control for over a year. Started getting cramps 1 day ago with no flow just spotting after sex. What's going on?

Time to check: Having no cycles for a year with spotting after intercourse should be seen by your OB for a full exam. Birth control helps regulate periods - so you may have an ovary dysfunction since your periods stopped. Ask your doctor about Polycystic Ovarian Disorder. But get a full check up and Pap smear soon please. ...Read more

No birth control, sex without a condom, used to only have my period 3 or 4 times a year now every month, but this time it is going on to the 8th day?

Anovlatory bleed: You may have anovulatory bleeding due to PCOS, if you are over 35 then you should have an endometrial biopsy done. If normal or you are under 35 this is best managed with birth control pills. ...Read more

On birth control for 2+ years, having regular sex, started taking pills back to back so I skip periods, had light red discharge now brown, STI maybe?

Unlikely: If there are no other symptoms, probably just related to taking your BCP incorrectly. I really don't know enough about you to make the call on an STD. I'd call your prescribing physician and discuss it with her/him. ...Read more

I had sex the last day of my period and I used a condom the whole time also I been on birth control for about a year and a half pregnant?

Highly unlikely: Each individual scenario you presented:
Having sex on the last day of your period, having sex with a condom (with proper use), and having sex while on birth control pills (if taken properly) would make the risk of unintended pregnancy low. All three together, make the likelihood that you are pregnant extremely low.
