Safe To Have Sex On Menses And On Birth Control
I'm getting a shot in my hip to help with my periods is it birth control? And if it is how long should I wait to have sex?
The menstrual cycle begins with the shedding of the uterine lining, resulting in bleeding from the vagina. A few weeks later, one ovary releases an egg and the uterine lining thickens in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Pregnancy can occur at this stage if sperm fertilizes the egg. If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more
This is my 5th day of periods. I started birth control pills from 3rd day. Today we had intercourse & my partner ejaculated inside. Are we safe???????
Not exactly: Birth control pills take one full cycle to be effective and you should be using other methods (such as condoms) until you have completed the first pack. That being said, it is unlikely you are ovulating 3 days into your cycle, so you should not get pregnant from this encounter. Good luck! ...Read more

Hi, I've been on birth control pills for around 6 months. I've had two periods since last intercourse. Is it possible still that I'm pregnant?
Very unlikely: If you have been taking your oral contraceptives as directed and on time every day, the chance of pregnancy is very small. If your bleeding is irregular because of irregular use of the pill, I would get a home pregnancy test to settle the question and use a second form of contraception until your next pack of pills ...Read more

Don't have periods normally, just started bc Taken multiple pregnancy tests. 6 weeks after intercourse had quant that was neg <2. freq urination, darker nips n discharge. Could I be preg still? Or could it be from just starting birth control?
Ocps: Did you use condoms in addition to the ocps? May be from the ocps. A negative pregnancy test sheds light on the problem. A quantitative hcg that is negative means you are not pregnant. Continue with the pills. As long as you do not miss any pills the likelihood of pregnancy is very low. ...Read more
