Should I be getting my period while on mircette (ethinyl estradiol and desogestrel)?

Not usually. Most women on mireya do not have periods. But some women either spot or have occasional, periods. This does not mean the iud is not working.

I've been on mircette (ethinyl estradiol and desogestrel) birth control pills for 9 years with no period in 3 years. Is this ok?

No peroid on mircett. Yes, the longer you take a birth control pill and take it regularly, the lighter your period may become and eventually disappear. If you even spot one day during the proper time, it is considered a period. You have nothing to worry about. If you would like to have a period your dr. May prescribe some other hormones to take with your Mircette (ethinyl estradiol and desogestrel) and induce a cycle. Read more...

I was on mircette (ethinyl estradiol and desogestrel) but I got a large blood clot in my lung. Does this mean I can never use birth control again?

NOT RECOMMENDED. All hormonal forms of birth control carry risks, especially concerning one is blood clot which unfortunate you got it. Thus, you have a high tendency of getting blood clot and so not recommended. If you smoke, this could be contributing. Iud such as paragard will likely serve you well, or Mirena (levonorgestrel) which has not been shown to have significant blood clotting risk. Consult your doc. Good luck. Read more...
