How long does it take for the bcp natazia (estradiol valerate and dienogest) to be effective? I started it on the first day of my period.

Right away. You should be protected right from the beginning. You will be more likely to have irregular spotting the first 2 or 3 cycles but as long as you are taking your pill consistently and regularly you will still be protected.

I've been on my period for 2 weeks and before that I barely had my period for about 3-4 months because I'm on natazia (estradiol valerate and dienogest). Could this be a serious matter?

Probably not. This problem mandates a real-time (face-to-face) meeting with a doctor. A history has to be taken along with a examination as well as labs and other tests. Only after all this will your doctor be in a position to tell you what's wrong and what needs to be done to help you. Read more...

I have been on natazia (estradiol valerate and dienogest) for about 2 years. I got my period 1-2 weeks early. Can I get pregnant while on the sugar pills?

Shouldn't. If you've been taking your pill as directed you shouldn't be at risk for pregnancy. Breakthrough bleeding can occur however even with perfect use. Continue your pills & if there was any chance for ovulation (skipped pills, delayed use, etc) use a back up method (condoms) for the next 2 weeks. Usually you can't conceive during your "sugar" pills. Take care. Read more...

I have been on natazia (estradiol valerate and dienogest) for about 2 yrs. I got my period about 1-2 weeks early. Can I get pregnant on the sugar pills since my period was early?

No. If you have been taking the pill as prescribed and not missed any pills, any early bleeding (called "breakthrough bleeding") while taking the active pills does not mean the pill isn't protecting you throughout the month (including the time that you're on the sugar pills). If you keep bleeding early, despite taking all the pills at the same time daily, check with your doc about changing pills. Read more...

Why the tests? It is not typical to have clotting disorder testing done prior to starting birth control. Your doctor must have ordered these things for some particular reason or out of some concern in your medical or family history. Despite your normal results check with the ordering physician to clarify the plan of care before starting any medication. Read more...

No period this month. On natazia (estradiol valerate and dienogest). Now cramping and my pantiliners are dark brown/black. 3 negative home pregnancy tests.

Can be normal. Some people don't bleed every month when on birth control pills and it's also common to bleed at other times than the place saver pills in the pill pack. Especially it any of the pills were taken late. With 3 negative pregnancy tests pregnancy is unlikely. Read more...
