Avatar n tn I'm on CD 88. Took Provera and did not have bleeding or spotting within 10 days after. Did blood work and it showed FSH: 6, LH: 1, TSH: 2.54. I did temping and OPKs and I'm pretty sure I did not ovulate. Before that I was on BCP (0.035 ethinyl estradiol & 0.25 norgestimate) and had very regular periods. What next? Clomid to stimulate ovulation? Clomid followed by estrogen? BCP to reset the cycle?
Avatar f tn I used to take tri-lo-sprintec tablet generic for (ortho tri-cyclen LO) for the past 6 six years, but in Michigan we do not have it in generic form anymore. Therefore this month i started taking Eth estradi/norgestimate and I feel very lazy and sleepy all the time and I see that I have been gaining weight. My question is is what I am taking now the same as what I was taking before because that is what the pharmacy told me?

Avatar n tn we had sex about a week after i changed my pill to the desogestrel pill.
Avatar f tn Hello! I have a problem since a over a year now that I would have blood in my stool sometimes and very bad stomach pain. I do have endometriosis and had a laparoscopy 2 years ago. Since then it got worse and worse. Whenever I eat anything slightly greasy, spicy or too sweet I'd get pain and whenever I eat there is a small bulge under my right ribs that would hurt as well. The blood is usually dark, though sometimes it's very bright as well.
Avatar m tn Her period was a few days ago and we are wondering if she can take the morning after today and then start the regular birth control tomorrow or the next day? we bought madonna Levonorgestrel .75 and a combo pill desogestrel .15 with ethinylestradiol .03 also the madonna pills are two....should she take one and then another twelve hours later, or two at once....
Avatar n tn Administration of most combination oral contraceptives (OCs) begins on the first Sunday after or on which bleeding has started. If you have not started menstruating, 3 weeks post partum would be when you would have most likely been told to restart your BCP. Tony is correct, if you are in fact breastfeeding you should discuss with your OB/GYN a progestin only pill ( a good example would be NORA-BE TABLET) . If not here are some low dose pills to consider.
Avatar f tn I'd wait. Sure you could have gotten pregnant but the pills make your period odd the first month. Technically it is supposed to start the week of placebos but mine always started around the first day of the missed pack. You can always test but I'd wait two weeks from the sex to test (as it typically takes two weeks from conception in order to show up on test) and you should get your period between there.

Avatar m tn Would Mircette be an option with desogestrel being less angrogenic? Also, any experience with prescribed HALF tab of OC? (ie. instead of Loestrin 1/20.. use 0.5/10 for hormonal imbalance?) Just concerned about initial breakout. Just some background... I have not used OC previously. I have no family history of breast cancer, no hypertension, non-smoker, and had 2 migraines in the past 5 years.
Avatar n tn m eighteen and recently got my wisdom teeth taken out so I had to take anti-biotics for a week and the doctor told me if would interfere with my oral contraceptives, Sprintec (norgestimate and ethinyl estradiol tablets, 0.250 mg/0.035 mg). I got the antibiotics at the same time as I started my new pack of birth control and took them both for the first week of my cycle, and I used protection until the next week when my antibiotics ran out (because, of course, things happen).
Avatar n tn if there is any thing i can do let me know please. i cant afford invitro or any of those things, so thats out of the question. is it possible that i am no longer ovulating? i do get my periods every month, is it possible to get your period and not be ovulating?
Avatar f tn II am trying to pin-point which of my female hormones is out of whack and causing, or at least contributing, to such terrible weekly Migraine headaches. Anyone know a good BC pill for individuals with severe, chronic Migraine headaches during ovulation AND menstruation? I am 29 yrs old, average weight, in fair health, have never been pregnant, and started my period at age 11.

Avatar f tn On a bad day, which is 1-2 days a week, the pain level is an 8-9 making it hard to move around or focus on anything. Sometimes I am lucky to have a low pain day 1-4 about once a week. I can’t remember the last time I had a 0 pain day. Triggers I want to say everything triggers it because it happens nearly every day, but there are some things that certainly trigger it more than others.
Avatar f tn I have heard so many bad things about Yasmin. I have also heard of the pill causing those symptoms as well so I am wondering if its just the pill itself. I take Marvelon21 and have since my surgery 4yrs ago. I am wondering if its the ingredients in the yasmin that could be doing it besides the progestin and estrogen? Where you taking it continuously with the yasmin 21 or the 28 day? MARVELON21 contains the below ingredients Each white, round tablet contains desogestrel 0.
Avatar f tn When I place into perspective that the ovary is about the size of an almond and 6 cm is roughly the size of a tangerine, it is a bit scary to have such a growth on or within your ovary or your body for that matter. After all, I have a lot at stake here, I could potentially lose an ovary or two or other organs necessary for conception or childbirth.
Avatar f tn The doctors are now putting me on a new pill called Gedarel which contains 30 mg ethinylestradiol and 150mg desogestrel. She said something about it being a slightly higher dose but I thought the higher the dose the more likely it was for you to spot? Does anyone have any ideas why this is happening? The breakthrough bleeding is always brown but after about a week if I go to the loo it will be light pink then go back to brown (sorry for the gross details!
Avatar n tn t tremble as bad as they did before, mainly if I use them a lot and then suddenly stop, they shake like crazy. They seem not to shake or bother me when I sleep or am trying to go to sleep. Some days my hands are pretty clumsy, other days, I don't notice. What is really worrying me, is that it seems to have spread to my legs. My toes tremble occasionally and I am also getting muscle 'jolts' in my thighs (especially my right thigh).
Avatar n tn There have been several ocasions where I felt as if I started to come down with a bug, like I was begining to come down with the flu, but again, no fever, or sore throat, or swollen lymph glands n my neck. The feeling would last a day then go away and I felt normal but was not feeling well, not tired, but just a lak of motivation is the best way to describe it.
