Okay I was on the birth control pill and I stopped taking it because I want to get pregnant but my period wont stop is that bad or what is happening?

Need more info. So you stopped the pill, got your period and it won't stop - i hope that is accurate. Take a pregnancy test to make sure that this is not an issue. Then, call your ob/gyn for a visit to examine you and consider whether an ultrasound is indicated. Read more...

If it's possible without surgery or birth control pill, how can I stop or get rid of my period somehow? Please help me asap.

Unrealistic. The pill works by making your body think you are already pregnant.Some can be used to stop periods for months or years at a time, with close monitoring, and that is at least working in harmony with your body. To eliminate it otherwise, you could remove the uterus or they can do an ablation (remove the inner wall of your uterus were periods originate).Both are surgery and permanent sterilization.

Tell me about stopping your period with continuous birth control pill use?

It's safe. Periods while you're on the pill aren't real periods. With ocps (oral contraceptive pills) the lining of the uterus is thinned so there is no build-up of tissue that needs to come out. With continuous use, there is no additional delay in getting pregnant beyond the usual for ocps. Read more...
Not a problem. Normally, the lining of the uterus thickens monthly in preparation for pregnancy. When u don't get pregnant, the hormone level drops & "signals" the uterus 2 slough the lining. With continuous pills, u take an active hormone pill daily. U take the placebo (hormone free)pills once every 3 mos. The drop in hormone level "signals" for a letdown bleed or period. U can think of it as tricking the body! Read more...
