Avatar f tn I started Diane 35 on january first day of my period. On february while on 7 days no pill, i had a very light period, brown to pinkish and lasted for 3 days. Then on march same thing till april a very light period every 7 days no pill. I remember april was super light period. I supposed to have a period on May 12 but until it's been 7 days delayed. I remembered i misses 1 pill last month but took it right away the next day together with my daily dose.
Avatar f tn Since you've taken it twice in a short amount of time, you've thrown off your normal menstrual cycle and it's going to take a while to get back on track. You should not be using Plan B as birth control. It is only meant for true emergencies like when someone isn't on the pill and the condom breaks. If you don't want to get pregnant then you need to get to your doctor and get on the pill. And always use condoms.
Avatar f tn At the point you take three in 2 months, you aren't using it properly. Get on regular, daily birth control hon. Of course your body is reacting to the pills. It's a major shock of hormones to the system (how it prevents an egg from implanting) and your body will respond with an imbalance and late periods and irregular periods are the result.
6422064 tn?1381163765 Before that I use to take beyaz for about 5 months..my dr. Wanted me to try a new birth control so he put me on Loestrin fe. I was good taking pills regularly but soon I started to forget and would miss 2 days here and there and would double up. I dI'd not use a back up method because I figured I had difficulty getting pregnant anyway, and most condoms irritate my skin. I was on bc because to help control my cyst.
Avatar f tn Things you should also know, I was on birth control and the month before I forgot to take my birth control on a weekend trip and got my period, at an irregular time. This month I got a light period at the same time but while I was taking my birth control properly, then at the end of the packet is where I start my missed period count. I did start bc because I had irregular periods and this missed period has happened before when I was younger from messing with my bc but never this long.
Avatar f tn I took the amoxicillin the best I could every eight hours three times a day but ended up having to go two days over and took one amoxicillin pill on July 7 and one amoxicillin pill on July 8. July 7 is when I started my new pack of birth control pills. I'm religious about taking my birth control pill to an alarm and never miss one. I've heard stories both ways about amoxicillin affecting birth control pills. Some people say you should be abstaining from sex/using condoms for the entire month.
9172449 tn?1402126306 The reason why I took these pill is because I didn't have my period for 3 months or more, and I guess this is the reason why I had pimple breakouts. And it did a good job on my menstruation while taking it, for 3 months my period has been regular, my acne lessen somehow, and also I gain 3kls weight and my breast become bigger a bit. But I got a constipation to the point that I got blood on my stool because of the hemorrhoids or I’m having rectal bleeding.
Avatar f tn Suddenly,I was worried because my period was delayed. Supposedly, it was regular that when I'm on my number 26 pills the brown color my period will come out. But, untill i finished the last pills the number 28 on july 9, 2014my period did not came out. So, i stop taking a new pack of pills.I was doing pregnancy test but it was negative..July 15, i started a new pack of pills and taked the 4 tablets ( numbers 1, 2, 3, & 4) one at a time and had our sex intercourse that night.
956554 tn?1246588730 You can go to planned parenthood, they have free condoms there, low cost birth control, and also programs for low income for free birth control. There are resources out there you just have to look. Good luck to you and I hope all works out well.

Avatar m tn Hi there, I'm 19yrs old, I was on birth control since the age of 14 (about 5 years). Recently stopped taking my pills do to a suspected hepatic adenoma (relating to hormones). I was on Tricyclen-Lo, I stopped taking my pills on May 8th, had a period 3 days after which was normal for me while on the pill. I have not had a period since. No bleeding, or spotting what so ever.
Avatar f tn It is best to wait for a month or so for your periods to regularize and then start a suitable birth control method. A visit to a gynecologist for discussion on the most appropriate method will be helpful. If you do not get your periods in a week or so it is suggested to take up pregnancy test. A urine/blood test for determining HCG levels may be done. This is only an advice and not a substitute for clinical examination. For more assistance and queries seek the opinion of a gynecologist.
Avatar f tn There are 2 options. Going on the contraceptive pill leading up to the holiday, and then not skipping a week of your pill for the time when you would due your holiday. That, or use tampons and that way you can still go in water and wear bikinis etc. Maybe something to talk to your mum about and see what she suggests.
Avatar f tn Some people do take a while to get their periods back after stopping birth control, so this is likely what is causing the delayed period, especially with all the stress.
Avatar n tn I have no idea if starting either of them before your period starts will effectively delay your period. I suppose a lot of things would factor in such as how far ahead of your usual cycle you begin taking the pill, etc. I'd suggest talking to your pharmacist, doctor, or the advice nurse to find out if it will/if it's a good idea.
Avatar n tn I forgot to start taking a new pack of birth control this month on the first day of my period. I'm going on vacation at the end of this month, and I start my period on the 30th of every month. I'm leaving on the 29th and dont want to have my period while I'm away. Is there any way I can start taking the pill now, in the middle of the month, and then start a new pack or continue taking the new one in order to miss my upcoming period?
Avatar n tn I was experiencing sudden hair loss after being on birth control pills for 7 years. Blood work was all good, and no unusual stress had occurred. My dermatologist, a female, said that she has found that discontinuing the pill will often slow or stop the hair loss. The condition is called "telogen effluvium". If there is some "shock to the system", as many as 70% of the scalp hairs are then shed in large numbers about 2 months after the "shock".

Avatar f tn Well this month it was light for 5 days then bam its been heavy for 3 days now and like heavier than i have ever had and i am not cramping too bad.. I have been in birth control since I was 14 and was put on it for severe cramps. When ever I got off it after 2 months I would start cramping bad again. Well about 3. Yrs ago (im 21) I went off it and didn't stop bleeding for almost 2 months drs ran tests I wasn't pregnant and didn't have a cysts.
Avatar n tn we brought her home on oxygen and an oxymeter. She was on oxygen for a month--though I noticed early on that her oxygen levels stayed up while she nursed. I learned months later from our ped GI that reflux can cause desats---I don't think my daughter ever needed to be on oxygen--she needed reflux meds---actually, her reflux was so severe that she had to have a fundo a week before she turned 10 months old.
Avatar f tn I really doubt you are pregnant. ON birth control and taken plan B. Hon, you've you are pretty safe there. :) BUT, you've probably jacked up your hormones and that is going to take a while to get back to normal. So, just let the normal happen as it will over time and don't worry about pregnancy with what you describe as that would be a miracle!
Avatar f tn I don't know about anyone else, but I have had such a difficult time trying to find the right birth control pill. I need one that doesn't make me tired,cause weight gain, or acne. It seems like every pill I try-either it helps my acne and makes me hungry and sooooo...... tired. I am also on Vyvanse for ADHD and that decreases my appetite.
Avatar f tn But all of those could also be side effects of the zoloft from what I've read. I'm on zoloft and klonapin for anxiety but now that my period is late they aren't exactly helping!! If anyone has been on a similar cocktail of meds I'd really appreciate your input.
Avatar f tn I stopped taking The Pill about 3 months ago, and I know sometimes it takes a while to have a period again. I have gone on and off The Pill several times in the past few years, but every other time my cycles went back to the way they were pre-birth control within 2 months. Like I said earlier, we are not trying to conceive, but because my period has been delayed the past few months I keep worrying I am pregnant!
Avatar f tn So I went to the clinic and it came out negative but the doc said it was too early to tell to go next week, Monday. My period was delayed three days. Now the thing is the 26 I had minor cramps. And that night I bled very light. The next day when I used the bathroom a lot of blood came out. So then I was convinced it was my was my period. But only blood comes out when I per. Is that normal? Could I be prego.???
Avatar m tn Thank you for your reply. Yeah I promise to be more responsible this time. In your own opinion do think she's pregnant?
Avatar n tn Please can anyone who had a period while pregnant share, my last af was on Dec 25th, was due on jan 29th, but on that day had drops of blood, and it continues today, it is bright red color, very light, can anyone tell me if they had this experience and was pregnant, my normal af is very heavy and lasts for 3-4 days, but this one is different, also me and DH BD every other day this month, tell me if this is a good chance I am or if it is somehting else, any feedback is highly appreciated.
