Hormones or surgery: Endometriosis is a condition where the cells that line the inside of the uterus are in the wrong place such as on pelvic surfaces; every month these areas menstruate and this causes pain. Endometriosis is stimulated by estrogen so turning off your own estrogen will temporarily help: pills or hormone shots etc. The only way however to really get rid of it is to remove it laparoscopically. ...Read more

I have missed 4 birth control pills lately and ended up having sex last night. Are the chances of becoming pregnant high or? Ive also been bleeding.

I have missed 4 birth control pills lately and ended up having sex last night. Are the chances of becoming pregnant high or? Ive also been bleeding.

No birth control: Missing that many pills means you are essentially on no birth control this month. It is the same as if you had unprotected sex. Whether you are at "high risk" of pregnancy depends on where you are in your cycle, which will be hard to predict because of the improper use of the pills. You may want to consider Plan B if you do not want to get pregnant. The bleeding is likely withdrawl from pills. ...Read more

I am having pregnancy systems but not pregnant.I'm having back pain, tired, feeling sick, tender breast and cravings, missed period can you help me?

Prob need to see dr.: The symptoms you are having indeed sound like pregnancy symptoms but if you have had a negative pregnancy test - home pregnancy test and maybe a confirmatory one at the clinic - then it is reasonable to start asking other questions around whether you have simply a delayed period or something else going on in the pelvis - certainly worthwhile to get a pelvic exam. ...Read more

I'm having some extremely bad cramps while taking active birth control pills of Seasonique, help?

Options: Try soaking in very warm bath, apply hot water bag to lower abdomen.

She recently had unprotected sex. She DOESN'T want to get pregnant. Any tips on avoiding getting pregnant? How to know? Did NOT take Plan B pill.

Sure, with willpower: It's great that a teen does not want to get pregnant. Because the whole point of sex (in nature) is to make babies, the way to not get pregnant is to not have sex. So, she must use her brain and willpower, to promise herself that she won't have sex again until... probably after the wedding. For yesterday's problem, she must tell her doctor how many days after sex it is, so her Dr. can advise her. ...Read more

It should not: Most women return to fertility within a few months after stopping birth control pills. Once your cycles are regular off the pills then you should be able to get pregnant during one of your ovulation periods. Make sure you are taking a prenatal vitamin now to prevent neural tube defects in your baby. ...Read more

But, you could still get pregnant after only taking three of the pills in the pak. ...Read more

Had intercourse on ovulation night on the 7th can't get the morning after pill until the 11th what are my chances of not getting pregnant?

~85% chance it works: Some thoughts... Consider taking a morning-after pill as soon as possible, because the sooner the better. If no normal regular period comes in a couple of weeks, one can consider checking a urine pregnancy test. If having sex and not on a birth control pill or other reliable method, then a woman should always carry condoms wherever she goes (that means keeping them in her purse, pocket, etc...). ...Read more

Pregnancy test: If you had sex since your last period and missed your period by 4-5 days, do a home pregnancy test. If the result is negative repeat the test 4-5 days later unless you get a period by then. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully.
If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.

I'm getting married in next month. My period dates fallen into my wedding period. If I get pills to late my period how can I avoid getting pregnant?

That's easy: A woman planning to avoid vaginal period bleeding for a specified time on the calendar just needs to talk with her primary doctor or Ob-Gyn doctor to start birth control pills on a certain date that will let her have her withdrawal periods before and after the weeks she wants to avoid vaginal bleeding. See doctor 3 months beforehand. Works most of the time. Sometimes, she will have some spotting. ...Read more

Hi, I'm a 20yo woman with PCOS. My only symptom is that I rarely get my period. My doctor is adamant that I need to take a progestin pill ten days each month to induce a period, even though I don't ever plan on getting pregnant. Why?

Hi, I'm a 20yo woman with PCOS. My only symptom is that I rarely get my period. My doctor is adamant that I need to take a progestin pill ten days each month to induce a period, even though I don't ever plan on getting pregnant. Why?

Protect endometrium: Your doctor has probably concluded that your PCOS is associated with unopposed production of estrogens by your ovaries or adrenals. Taking a progestin pill periodically (monthly, every 3 months or every 6 months) should protect your endometrium from constant estrogen stimulation and reduce your risks of endometrial hyperplasia, polyploid tumors or endometrial cancer in the future. ...Read more

Ovulation testing: PCOS patients often do not ovulate. If you are having regular cyclic periods now then you may be ovulating. If irregular then you may not be. Ovulation testing is the next step. This should be done before taking ovulation medication like Clomid. Consider a midluteal phase Progesterone blood test to help determine the next steps. ...Read more
