No periods on the pill

Common Questions and Answers about No periods on the pill


Avatar m tn For example, while taking the combination pill, my period always arrived spot on and only lasted for 4 days. I started the mini-pill on the last day of my past period as my doctor told me to do so. I waited more than the recommended 48 hours before having unprotected sex. I have been taking it EVERY day at the same hour 7am without missing any pills (I have an app which I use to log my pills).

Avatar f tn thanks for the advice.
Avatar m tn My 13 year old daughter was placed on the pill to regulate her periods. Will taking birth control pills at such a young age cause her any issues down the road?
1345608 tn?1276439442 To me, it sounds like you just may be headed in the way of your periods stopping altogether. This would be due to the hormones in the pill. It's not as common with the pill as it is with the Mirena IUD or the Depo shot, but it's not unheard of. Also, being 18, you're still going through some body changes, and even without any birth control at all, sometimes there will be times of irregularity in your period. The other possibility is that you've been losing weight.
Avatar n tn I'm taking the pill to help regulate my periods & forgot to take it until an hou after my usual time to take it. Will this cause any problems??
Avatar n tn There are a number of possible reasons for not having a period and you should make a doctor's appointment to find out what is going on. Sudden weight gain is one possible cause for not having a period, but that might also be in combination of another cause that is making you not have your period. Once the doctor finds out what is causing this, then you can go from there.
Avatar f tn I don't understand why your Dr has you on the pill if you have no uterus because there is no chance of getting pregnant and you are not able to have any more periods. I hope I'm reading your post right. Please let me know if I am or not. If I were you, I would see a different Gynecologist.
Avatar f tn I have had swabs taken, a smear test, hormone levels checked and even an ultrasound overie scan for sists. And still no answers. I am at a loss and I feel like my GP has eliminated all the bad things and has given up. Although I'm not.ready just yet both I and my partner really want children in the future and this is obviously a worry.
Avatar n tn I just went off the pill this week after 7 years on it. My last few periods have been much lighter than before. Should I be worried about this or will this mean my body will take longer to have regular periods now that I'm off the pill? Also: when should I start taking prenatal vitamins as I'm trying to conceive?
Avatar f tn The pill can cause a lot of different changes in the timing, length and appearance of a period. That's one of the reasons why people go on the pill. To make their periods shorter or less heavy, etc. I don't think there's anything unusual about your experience because it sounds pretty much normal to me.
Avatar f tn ve had brown discharge thats showing no signs of going away, i normally have it on the 7th day of my period but this is really unsual for me and i don't know what to do, i doubled up on my pill (12 hours apart) for a few days which stopped my period but this discharge doesn't seem to want to go away and i want to be able to have sex with my boyfriend again without worrying about leaking stuff all over him haha, any help would be appreciated i'm going to the doctor when i can
1913857 tn?1322259956 I'm on the pill have bin for over two years now. Last month my fiancee came in me twice in a 24 hour period. Once in the afternoon and once that night when we went to bed. This is the first time he has *** in me more then once in one day. He says that his second round inside me will get me pregnant even while on the pill. He said this had happened with his other girlfriend who he lived with years ago.
Avatar f tn It may take some time for your periods to come back after you stop taking the pill. Most women have their periods within two to four weeks after stopping the pill, but it varies in every individual .If you are doubtful about pregnancy take up urine/blood pregnancy test. That will be helpful. Visit a gynecologist for more queries and assistance. I hope it helps. Best luck and regards!
Avatar n tn this afternoon and she has assured me that missed periods can be normal while on the pill. I have been on the pill for about four months now. I am curious to hear how your situation turns out as I am obviously still very worried.
Avatar f tn My doc says you ovulate before getting a period - i have been on the pill for 5 years and for the past 9 months my periods have stopped - i am now 14weeks 2 days pregnant - I have been on the pill the entire time and had no period so definately possible!!!!
Avatar m tn I believe wholeheartedly that it does. Process of of elimination - very long story, but I finally narrowed it down. The test was that I stopped taking it. My anxiety lessened and panic attacks ceased. Just started taking it again, and the edgy feeling is back (precedes the anxiety)...and it is 4 a.m. I have been sleeping like a baby since I discontinued the pill. Now I am awake and feeling nervous.

Avatar n tn Sometimes your periods won't come bang on when you finish your last pill. Implantation bleeding is a reddish/pinky colour. Brown discharge is a sign of old blood which is normal at the beginning of your period. I was in the same boat as you last month. My period was 6 days late, had pink spotting which scared me so I took a test and came out negative. But my period did come and it is normal for your periods not to come bang on time when you finish your last tablet.
Avatar f tn In the situation of still being on the pills I would suggest waiting for 7-14 days for the periods. Failing which you may run a pregnancy test and consult a gynaecolgist. Take care!
Avatar f tn Hello, I've been on birth control since I was 15 (now 23) for ovarian cysts. About a year ago I switched pills from Loestrin 24 fe to Lo Loestrin 24 fe. Within the year I think I've had 2 periods (only lasting a day or so) and a few days of very light spotting. I do know this pill is the lowest dose of hormones you can have with a birth control pill. Is this normal?
Avatar f tn I got my period right after. I was on the pill for 6 years and just stopped it 2 months ago. My periods are on track still but no pregnancy yet.
Avatar n tn I was on the same pill and i had been on it for 8 months, and i was advised by my doctor to stop taking the pill since it was giving me yeast infections, i ahve been off of it for a month now exactly and have not recieved my period. i have also been sexually active with my long time partner with some protection.
