Can you get pregnant on the implant? Should I take the morning after just in case?

Can you get pregnant on the implant? Should I take the morning after just in case?

No: The morning after pill is not great protection and uses the same sort of medication as the implant. Unless the implant was just placed, or if it has been in longer than 3 years, there is no benefit to be gained from taking the morning after pill, but nothing is 100% except abstinence. Condoms make more sense because they work in a different way and will also provide some protection against STD's. ...Read more

3-6 weeks: Ask your doctor even before your delivery. Depending on your health and risk factors, you can restart the pill in 3-6 weeks after delivery. I hope that you are planning to breast feed--it's the healthiest thing for your baby and easiest for you. That will also determine when you can restart, and which pills are safest. ...Read more

Hi there, I had unprotected sex and wanted to find out if I can use mercilon as the pill instead of going to buy morning after pill?

Hi there, I had unprotected sex and wanted to find out if I can use mercilon as the pill instead of going to buy morning after pill?

Morning after pill: Mercilon is not meant to be used as a morning after pill. If you are taking Mercilon 21 consecutive days out of 28 day cycle for more than one cycle, you do not need to use the morning after pill. Otherwise purchase and use the morning after pill such as Postinor. More about Postinor http://postinorpill.com/global-postinor/what-is-morning-after-pill/how-to-take-morning-after-pill ...Read more

Can i take the morning after pill twice in one month? What will be the side-effects if I use it 2.5 weeks later again?

No danger: There is no danger in taking Plan B again. You need a better long term plan though. Plan b only decreases the risk of an unplanned pregnancy. If you do not want to be pregnant please see a doctor to discuss long term birth control options. ...Read more

For the last several months, I will often miss a menstrual cycle, or several, and then when I do get a period, I get another directly after it, help?

Many possibilities: This could be a result of several different issues and it greatly depends on your age and overall health. For young women this can be completely normal. Sometimes the decision is made to regulate the periods with birth control pills for a few months. In older women, this can be seen as a sign of early menopause. Other medical conditions, life stress, and physical stress can do this as well. ...Read more

How accurate is the morning after pill if I have unprotected sex and my partner put his semen in me will the morning after pill work to prevent kids?

Up to 95%: If taken within 24 hours. Instead of worrying about unwanted pregnancies, as well as std's and HIV (which the morning after pill doesn't protect against) -- wouldn't it just be simpler and smarter to not have unprotected sex -- but use some barrier method of contraception instead? If you're old enough to have sex, you're old enough to act like a responsible adult. ...Read more

It is still effective 72 hours from intercourse. 89% effective at 72 hours.There may be some effectiveness up to 5 days according to some studies, but I could not find any percentages.

I took isoface acne treatment for almost 3 months 40 pills one every other day , how long do I have to wait to get pregnant. How long after the last day i took the pill.

I : I believe that you are talking about accutane. I think isoface is that name of that drug when it is sold in central america. For Accutane users, they should remain on two forms of birth control for at least one month after taking finishing their regimen. I tell my patients to wait three months just to be sure, though. ...Read more
