Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.

If I take my birth control pill (gildess fe) everyday but not at the same hour each day how effective is the pill? Am I protected?
Yes, but....: Yes, you are still protected, but your level of protection is likely less than what it would be if you took it at the same time each day. I recommend making it a habit to take it at the same time everyday, such as right when you wake up or go to bed (if close to the same time each day), or at noon, etc. This will also help you to not forget to take it, which can definitely reduce protection. ...Read more

Several hours are ok: But if you forget to take it in the evening and realize that in the morning, take your pill then, but continue secondary contraception for the rest of the cycle.

Forgot to take my birth control pill (Yaz) & I was 20 hours late. Besides contraception issues, how bad is it for my health to take it that late?
Take it Now: If you are late taking just 1 pill, it may not give you much trouble. Some women will experience breakthrough bleeding which is irregular bleeding in this cycle. It will definitely reduce your birth control efficacy. I always advise patients to use another form of birth control if they miss a pill. Do not think in general they pose significant health issues. ...Read more

I forgot to take my birth control pills at 6:30 yesterday it's been 24 hours. Can I take a Plan B since I had unprotected sex in between the time? .
Can I be pregnant? If I had unprotected sex on my ovulation day and didn't take my birth control until an hour later what are my chances of being pregnant
If you took your birth control everyday around the same time and did not miss any pills in your pack the odds of you being pregnant are less than 1%. One thing you should know is that when you take birth control as directed you do not ovulate, this is how bc works. The pills suppress ovulation so pregnancy is avoided. Birth control can fail when pills are missed, this occurs because that changes the hormones in your body thus allowing ovulation and the possibility of pregnancy.
If you are unsure about how birth control works or what to do if and when you miss pills consult the instructions that came with your pills or ask your doctor.
Take care. ...Read more
Took my bc pills as a form of Plan B (lo loestrin fe, 4 pills, 12 hours apart, pills m-th). How do I continue to take my birth control? Today is mon.
One per day: You should continue taking your pill one per day as you normally would. I am confused though. If you were already on birth control then there was no need to take Plan B or a form of emergency contraception. That is what birth control is for. Also you did not do the correct dose since you are on a 10 mg birth control pill. You underdosed. Its best to consult with a doctor before doing things alone. ...Read more
