Birth Control Pills (Definition)

Also known as oral contraceptives, birth control pills are highly effective oral medications that use hormones to prevent pregnancy. There are two main types of birth control pills: one with estrogen and progestin (also known as the combination pill) and one with just progestin. The two main ways they prevent pregnancy are: 1) The hormones thicken the cervical mucous, which keeps sperm from entering the uterus on their way to the egg; and 2) By maintaining a level of hormone in the blood stream that prevents the ...Read more

Can u get pregnant if u take birth control pills at different times?

Can u get pregnant if u take birth control pills at different times?

Depends: The failure rate for the "pill"is often cited as 5%/yr & many variables are included in that number. It works by placing a steady amount of hormone in your body that tricks it into thinking you are pregnant, so eggs are saved rather than released. If there is delay or you skip, your circulating level may fall enough to allow release. A few hours either way is unlikely to matter, consistency works best ...Read more

I accidently took 3 or my birth control pills at once instead of two so I didn't take one on that Sunday. I'm late for my period Now. Help?

I accidently took 3 or my birth control pills at once instead of two so I didn't take one on that Sunday. I'm late for my period Now. Help?

Might be pg: Birth control pills generally work by keeping a constant level of hormone in the system to convince the body it is pregnant, and not ovulate. Skipping or missing an active hormone pill (not the dummy pills) could allow the hormone level to drop enough to allow ovulation. It probably doesn't happen often, but could. Do some home tests, realizing they can be falsely negative early in pregnancy. ...Read more

I'm on my week of inactive birth control pills. If I take a fluconazole 150mg tablet, will it make my birth control less effective?

Birth control pills: There is no evidence to suggest that it would. If anything, other azole antifungals (like ketoconazole) inhibit the pathway in the liver that metabolizes your birth control pill, i.e. Make more of the pill available not less. The only antibiotic that was shown to reduce efficacy of birth control was rifampin, which speeds up the metabolic pathway in the liver. ...Read more
