Totally normal: Assuming you have not missed any pills and could be pregnant, but with loloestrin the low dose of the hormone can make you miss your periods which is fine and great choice at your age as u should be on the lowest dose combo pill which is loloestrin and if u do not want any more children an in office essure tubal is the way to go, easy, takes 5 minutes my pts are awake, covered by insurance. ...Read more
I switched from Portia birth control to junel fe 1/20. The second week on junel was period-like. Now no period on placebo week. Pregnant?
Probably not: The change in pills can throw your period off. The junel is very low dose and therefore causes periods to be very light -sometimes just spotting. If you keep taking them , the breakthru bleeding should get better. If you are still worried about pregnancy, do a pregnancy test and trust the results. ...Read more
On birth control. Junel fe 1/20. Should I worry about backup method on fluconazole? Took the pill on Tuesday the 19th
Backup method??: Fluconazole is an anti fungal medicine, NOT a birth control medicine! Either you misspelled a word or somebody is misleading you. The BCPs that you are taking have an efficacy of greater than 99% if you follow the directions scrupulously. Their very rare failure is due to women skipping the pill. It doesn't work if you don't take it. Back up includes diaphragm, IUD, foam, condom use, etc. ...Read more
On Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) pill skipped period but got period 2weeks later on white pills. Why?
Missed pills?: Bleeding usually occurs when the hormonal levels drop. Theoretically, if you take the pills at the same time everyday and never miss a pill, your hormone levels should stay the same and so you should not bleed. But in reality, there is a standard distribution of people in the population for whom 'normal' does not apply and there is variability. ...Read more
Was on nexplanon and swithed to gildess fe because of breakthrough bleeding now having breakthrough bleeding on gildess fe, is this normal?
Irregular bleeding: breakthrough bleeding can happen with both Nexplanon and low dose birth control pills. An ultrasound would be useful to rule out polyps or other causes of bleeding. A higher dose pill like 30 mcg might have less breakthrough bleeding, but it could have more side effects like nausea or headaches. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If i take loestrin fe 24 while i'm on Depo-Provera provera (medroxyprogesterone) will it stop break through bleeding?
"surgical abortion on july 24 started taking birth control on july 28 then i took Plan B on august 2nd. Now on sugar pill little brown spoting normal?
Maybe: The real issue here is that you do not want to be pregnant and are not making good choices about your contraception. It is unlikely that you would have gotten pregnant again so soon after an abortion but if you really don't want to get pregnant you need much better birth control! my advice would be to get started on a reversible long acting contraceptive like the shot, and iud or implant. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
