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 took ec pill on 29th feb got periods on 7th feb (expected date) . Took ec pill again on 12th feb . Had irregular bleeding on 16th. Is it due to ec?
Probably the EC pill: Plan B or other EC pills can alter the menstrual bleeding for the cycle in which Plan B was taken, and sometimes the next cycle. One should be sure to check a home pregnancy test about 3 weeks after sex, because emergency contraception pills work most of the time, but not all the time. One should choose a Plan A (a reliable contraceptive method to use all the time), to avoid the need for EC pills. ...Read more
Missed birthcontrol 2 days ago. Took two pills yesterday, had sex today and was 12 hours late on my birthcontrol. Chances of pregnancy?
Got provera (medroxyprogesterone) withdrawl bleed on Sunday, then started bc pill again...following Sunday got period! Continue pill pack? Why period now?
Yes continue pills: you may continue to have breakthrough or unpredictable bleeding while taking the pill. Continue to use birth control pills as prescribed. not all bleeding is "your period" , and you do not get a " period" on the pill. bleeding that occurs on hormonal contraception (like the birth control pill , ring or patch) is a withdrawal bleed if during the placebo pills, or breakthrough bleed other times. ...Read more
Been takin rifampin on bc pills, sex on sept 2nd took planb same day, period came on sept 26th, numerous neg hpt. Nipples tender, possibility of preg?
Maybe not pregnant: If a woman has a normal period and a negative pregnancy test after her period, she is very unlikely to be pregnant. If the pregnancy test is repeated 5-7 days later and is still negative, that just confirms that she is not pregnant then. Of course, she might get pregnant a few days later, because she might be ovulating if her birth control pills are not being taken right or not working properly. ...Read more
2 hours late on bc pill started spotting Saturday and Sunday had unprotected sex Sunday finished that weeks pills on 2 day of sugar pill but no period?
On BC pill, period was one day late. Forgot 2nd to last pill and took it 6 hours late. Took last pill on time. Did taking that pill late cause delay?
Not if a 28-day pack: With a 28-day pack, the last row of pills (of a different color) are inactive pills that don't contain hormones. Therefore, whether or not a person takes those inactive pills does not change the timing of her withdrawal bleeding. Generally, the inactive pills don't affect anything. ...Read more
Had sex during end of period 16jan i took ecp pill after 3days got periods on 26jan and today on 27feb no period pregnacy test negative,can i be pregt?
Took PlanB on dec.3 had my period early on dec. 8-dec.12. had intercourse on dec11,13,15. took planB today, its in the 120 hr time period. am i safe?
No: You are not safe from your self...and your partner. You should look in to Plan A.......what is the reason of sex. If you do not need children and want to enjoy sex....go for IUD/ tubal ligation /vasectomy of partner. Other wise this kind of frequent hormone manipulation will land you in to trouble....leading to suffering, finally hysterectomy. ...Read more

I'm on yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) continuously . I had unprotected sex on the 4th day of my placebo pills, took Plan B 2 days later. Started my period but it lasted 1 day?
Okay: There's a very high likelihood that you're okay. 1) you had sex on your placebo pills, so low likelihood of pregnancy there. 2) you took plan b, so you double covered yourself as well. It's okay that your period only lasted 1 day, sometimes that can happen when women take plan b. You can take a pregnancy test in 15 days or so, but it will likely be negative, good luck. ...Read more
Had sex on Saturday and took postinor2 after 3hrs.Took another dose on Sunday.Had sex again on Monday and took postinor2 again.chance of pregnancy?
Risky: Postinor is an emergency contraception and should not be used more than once per cycle much less twice in one week. You need to start a more reliable method of contraception. Know that if you don't get pregnant you are getting away with something and your luck will only last so long. Be safe. Use something more reliable. ...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

"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
Finished period on Tues, had unprotected sex on Wedn (exactly 8 wks after having baby). Took Plan B on Frid then started period on Wednesday againWHY?
Typical with Plan B: Plan b essentially disrupts the normal menstrual cycle by blocking or delaying ovulation. That it is how it works and why it is so different than a medical abortion. Irregular bleeding after taking Plan B is not rare. Always check a pregnancy test after using Plan B and see a doctor to start a better form of birth control. ...Read more
