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
Most likely, nothing: Prenatal vitamins are a really good multivitamin for any adult to take. They often have some iron included, so I would only take the extra iron supplements if you know you are anemic. Taking birth control is hormonal control to prevent pregnancy.

U will not: Get your period which is fine, but u need to be doing this with a monophasic pill, I do this with alot of my pts, who do not want their period, they stay on active pills, they never take the placebo and when they stop their periods will return to the way they would be at that age in their life meaning the pill does not have long term side efects on your period, feel sorry for your red sox.

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.

What happens if you miss some of your birth control pills? I missed three pills, should I still take them?
No: By the time a woman misses 3 bcp in a row, the chance she will ovulate and start a period is very high. I recommend a woman stop the current pack, take nothing for 4 more days and then start a new pack at the beginning. Back up birth control will need to be used until 2 weeks into the next pack, such as condoms. In order for bcp to work you need to take them same time every day. Read more
