When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks.

Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...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
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

Spotting a week before my period and into my period week. Sexually active. On birth control. Took HPT on day period was supposed to come- negative?
Repeat test: You may wish to repeat the test in 4-5 days, unless you get a period by then. Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about 2-3 weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. If the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow 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. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more
I am on the birth control pill, missed my period, and have a negative pregnancy test. What's going on?
Do i take placebo Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) pill if my period came on active pills?
Continue: Continue taking your pills; you won't be sure, if what you are experiencing is just "breakthrough bleeding" and you will still come on your regular menses. You want to be sure to stay in sync when you start your new pack. If you ever stop taking bcp anywhere in the pack, while on the hormone pills, you will have a withdrawal bleeding. If the breakthrough bleeding continues, you may need to switch. ...Read more
"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

Chances of pregnancy when taking Loestrin Fe (generic version) Correctly all the time I DONT want to get pregnant, EVER, should he use condem too?
1/100/year: The risk of pregnancy of oral contraceptives is 1 per 100 woman years if taken properly. That means if 100 women take the pill correctly for a year, 1 will become pregnant. Using an additional method such as condoms, diaphragm, sponge or foam reduces it to even lower levels. Thanks for trusting HealthTap! ...Read more
