Take at bedtime: Nausea can happen for 5-10% of women in the first cycle. Taking at bedtime may help. It's important to take the same time every day and not miss. Typically nausea improves after the first 1-3 months. If your pill causes vomiting, call your doctor to ask about a different pill. There are many different pills with different doses or different hormone combinations.

How to get rid of nausea due to anxiety after stopping birth control pill and how long will it take to feel normal again?

How to get rid of nausea due to anxiety after stopping birth control pill and how long will it take to feel normal again?

It depends: If you are so anxious about becoming pregnant after stopping the pill, either get back on it or take something else to prevent pregnancy. If your diagnosis is correct, no anxiety, no nausea. Otherwise, I would suggest that your nausea is more likely because you are pregnant since stopping the pill. In that case, perhaps a pregnancy test is indicated.

Yuzpe method: This is called the Yuzpe method. You took 4 combined oral contraceptives at once. You do not need to repeat it just take one per day. Nausea is very common with this method as the Estrogen dose is quite high. If you were already taking birth control pills daily then emergency contraception was not needed.

Do anti nausea tablets (moxolon) affect the birth control pill?

Do anti nausea tablets (moxolon) affect the birth control pill?

Probably not: This medication should not effect birth control pills the way antibiotics can. Of course, there is no guarantee, but this is not one of the obviously reported interactions with oral contraceptives.

Lowest dose: One with 10mcg of Estradiol would be expected to have the lowest rate of nausea, but nausea is a recognized side effect of oral contraceptive use with any/all doses/formulations.

My birth control pill (sprintec) makes me so nauseous if I wake up early & stay up late at night. Are there any bc pills that don't cause nausea?

My birth control pill (sprintec) makes me so nauseous if I wake up early & stay up late at night. Are there any bc pills that don't cause nausea?

Try lower dose pill: If you've recently started birth control pills or combined hormone methods like the vaginal ring or the patch, this may be a side effect. If pills, take them in the evening. The first 1-3 months may cause nausea, but it typically gets better. If still present in 3 months, ask your doctor about changing pills. If not just nausea, but also vomiting, call your doctor.

It's possible: The changes hormonally from stopping the pill can cause transient nausea, but this should resolve, unless of course you get pregnant, and then you have those hormonal issues which could also cause nausea.!

Took Plan B a month ago, taking my birth control pill, period came on time, pain under right side of rib. Vomiting, nausea. Could I be pregnant?

Took Plan B a month ago, taking my birth control pill, period came on time, pain under right side of rib. Vomiting, nausea. Could I be pregnant?

Probably not, but...: If worried, can test. A urine pregnancy test done correctly gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened). If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and therefore lead to a repeat test. If a woman has her normal regular period, then she is usually presumed not pregnant.

I'm 29 My honeymoon 'll be on 13-Jun & my next period will be on 07-Jun. Is Gynera a good birth control pill to avoid pregnancy? How & when to take it

Birth control: First congratulations on getting married. Gynera is a combination pill. Should be started on first day of next period. Need to be on it 2-3 weeks before considered safe to avoid pregnancy, so I would HIGHLY recommend a barrier method of contraception as well until then. Hope this helps. Sorry about the timing with your honeymoon.

Is celebrex (celecoxib) ok to take while being on the birth control pill?

Generally, yes: Generally, Celebrex (celecoxib) is fine to take with birth control pills, but you should check with your pharmacist by telling them what birth control you take to assure there are definitively no interactions. Good luck.
