Also, be sure to start using a reliable form of birth control, so that one will NOT need emergency pills again. ...Read more

On BC. Had withdrawal bleeding on time, but was thick and mucus-y. 4 days later I have gobs of egg white mucus coming out. No odor. What's going on?

A few ideas: Mucus is something that's a normal production of the tissues in the vagina and of the cervix. Sometimes there can be excess mucus due to the nabothian cyst in the cervix which produce copious amounts of mucus. In and of itself, mucus isn't a sign of something ominous. You could get an exam to make sure everything looks okay and possibly get tested if any chance of STD exposure ...Read more

2 weeks: When stopping birth control pills with the last pill in the package, not anytime before, ovulation can be anticipated 2 weeks from stopping the pill. This calculation still comes with a significant margin of error. If pregnancy is desired, pregnancy tests a week apart from the day of the first anticipated period after stopping the pill will catch a pregnancy early. Else, condoms until next period ...Read more
