Is there a safe treatment for heavy periods after triple negative breast cancer. Am not on any medication or contraception.

Is there a safe treatment for heavy periods after triple negative breast cancer. Am not on any medication or contraception.

Probably but...: .....You are very young and had a triple negative breast cancer. I do not know about uk standards for brca testing but you could carry a brca mutation (especially brca1).

Going to start taking pregnacare contraception for myself. But noticed they do a male version? Is it necessarily for both me n my partner to take it?

Going to start taking pregnacare contraception for myself. But noticed they do a male version? Is it necessarily for both me n my partner to take it?

No, for sure: Pregnacare is simply a branded vitamin, one for men one for women. Taking vitamins has no impact on male fertility whatsoever, and since men do not get pregnant they don't need anything to 'get ready' for pregnancy. I'd save your money. ...Read more

Injection or pills: If you only need contraception for a couple of months, you could use Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone). One injection when you are on your period and pregnancy will be prevented for 3 months. You could also use Birth Control Pills. They should be started while you are on your period before your husband gets home. Then you will be ready. Best Wishes! ...Read more

Can I drink if I started to use contraception patch?

Can I drink if I started to use contraception patch?

I guess: I guess, you are referring to drinking alcohol. If so, yes, you can drink, although, remember, the first month of use of the contraceptive patch, you are not guaranteed full protection from pregnancy. Also, if you are someone who gets drunk, I don't give you green light by sending this message, because drinking is bad and you should not drink for other reasons. Alcohol doesn't interfere w/patch. ...Read more

What are some contraception methods for people with factor v lieden?

Non-hormone methods: People with abnormalities of factor v are at increased risk of blood clots in the veins. For that reason we avoid birth control with estrogen in it (pills, patch, ring). Some doctors also avoid Progesterone (mirena (levonorgestrel) iud, implanon, pills, Depo-Provera provera) although the evidence on that is not clear. Barriers like condoms, cervical caps, and diaphragms are safe. So is the paragard iud. ...Read more

So: the mini-pill is usually considered safer, the iuds are very safe options, as are: Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) shots, and the Nexplanon rod.

Does the IUD contraception have an effect of weight gaining wen taken? And roughly how much does it cost?

Does the IUD contraception have an effect of weight gaining wen taken? And roughly how much does it cost?

Long-term insertion: The IUD is a device, you do not ingest it. I does not mess w/ hormones so there should be no weight impact. Cost is hard to say from culture to culture - but in the USA, insertion is the expensive part. A provider must do it. You can find this info locally. It does nothing to protect against STDs - so that can still be a big concern for some. ...Read more
