Skipping period on birth control and pregnancy

Common Questions and Answers about Skipping period on birth control and pregnancy


Avatar n tn I have been on birth control for 2 years now, and this month my period is late. I have taken my pills late a few times... up to 12 hours after I was suppose to maybe on three seperate occasions. Could this be why I am late?
Avatar n tn I have been taking birth control and I was supposed to start my period 8 days ago. I have always been incredibly regular while taking birth control for over 5 years now. This is the first time I have ever missed a period. Could I possibly be pregnant? I have been taking home pregnancy tests (2 so far) and they both read negative.
1182699 tn?1297578384 he kept wanting to put me on the birth control.. I never took it. After feeling like I was just a number there and not a person, I went back for my female health to my PCP who actually delivered both of my girls. He found a "not normal" pap 6 months ago and I was back in last week for a recheck with that new ultrasound they never did when I was having kids...very unomfortable. Both tests came back normal this time..Yay!
Avatar n tn Dear Dr. Kim, My name is Dina and I have been on birth control for about a year and 2 months now. Recently I missed my pills on the weekend because I went out of town then took them when I got back but then I forgot to take them for a whole week because I figured I might as well start my new pack on the next Sunday that follows.
Avatar f tn If I take my birth control pill close to the date of when my next period supposed to start will it delay my period ?
Avatar m tn After doing some research on some forums with related problems it seems skipping a period may be regular while on the pill, but what I found was women who had this problem, was already on it for a couple months or more, considering she is new to the pills, I'm very worried. If you guys can't confirm this issue, I'll go buy a pregnancy test for her immediately. Thank you in advance. Sincerely Unspoken.
Avatar f tn On saturday, I had a doctors appt and somehow forgot to take my birth control pill... and had sex that night.. but we used a condom. The next day when I took my birth control pill, I didn't realize that I was taking a white pill(instead of the blue pill which corresponded with Sunday). I didn't realize this until Monday at work, when I was going to take my pill for Monday and realized that Sunday's pill was there as well. So I did take a pill sunday, but it was supposed to be saturdays pill.
Avatar f tn   I've done extensive research on this and 9 times out of 10, women who try skipping while on a triphasic pill end up having spotting or breakthrough bleeding. It's very unlikely that it will work for you. It's too bad that you're not on a monophasic pill because you would've had a greater chance of success for skipping.
Avatar f tn Im on yasmin OC pills and here's the story.. - last period Oct. 15 - 20 - stopped my Nov. period by skipping the sugar pills.. also had protected sex with condom the same week. - 3 weeks later the spotting came and sometimes only appears when i wipe. what got me worried was i thought it was my normal period but then it shouldnt happen while on the last week of active pills.. stupidly i also missed the sugar pills again and went onto the next packet..
Avatar f tn It depends on why you didn't have it. Some women will deliberately run two months' worth of birth-control pills together without a break, in order not to have a period. It's not the greatest thing to do regularly, but it isn't "a bad thing." Some women skip a period for no discernible reason, then go on and have normal periods. That's not a "bad thing" either. Some women do skip a period and keep skipping them, because they are pregnant.
Avatar n tn Im on birth control and i was wondering if i could skip my period while on the pill if i just dont take the last row pills that make my period come?
Avatar n tn Is this the best way to delay my period? How unhealthy is it to be going on and off birth control in a matter of a month? I want to reiterate again... I am not interested in this case in using birth control to prevent pregnancy. I always use a condom.
Avatar f tn (the pull out method also does not count as birth control and can't be relied on if you're skipping pills)
Avatar n tn i have been on birth control for a very long time (11 years) to help me regulate my period as i have irregular periods. I would stop taking the pill every now and then. I was actually off the pill for one year 2 years ago and the only form of birth control that my fiancee and I used was withdrawal. I got back on the pill again for 1 year after that, and now i have been off the pill again for 3 months now.
Avatar f tn My period is two weeks late and i have taken 4 home tests all were negative. I have regular periods and I have not been on birth control in years.We are not trying to conceive and my boyfrind does not *** inside of me. Should I consider being pregnant and take another test? or call a doctor?. im confused. please help? any opinions?
Avatar f tn It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Avatar n tn but i need to know so that i can stop taking the birth control, because can that affect the baby? And what affects will the birth control pills have on the baby? Thank you for any help you can give me!
Avatar n tn I think it would be safe to test in another week though to see if you're pregnant if you have'nt gotten your period. There are many brands of birth control pills available. I do know some women may not do well on one but do well on another brand.
Avatar f tn I am 27yrs old and was on the birth control pill for about 12 yrs. I have always kind of had anxiety/depression since I had been on the pill. I also had a decreased libido. Well, I decided enough was enough and stopped taking the pill. It has been about 1 month since stopping, and the anxiety has gotten some what better.
Avatar n tn It's completely unnatural feeling and, frankly, it's starting to creep me out. I've been on birth control pills before, but I've never felt like this. I think they're affecting my over all mood. Not really irritable, or pms-y feeling, but just weird. I just feel weird.
Avatar n tn i was off of it since march, skipped april bc i was late for the appt. to get a new annual sets of birth pill...back on it on may and the last time i took an active pill was the third sat. of may. im officially, five days late today (sun.11:13pm) im having lots of common early preg, symptoms... today i discharge brownish, then brownish with red.... always have right lower abdominal cramping... nausea after i eat, having to focus not to throw up.
521037 tn?1212279053 I vowed that i was going to get myself a good education and a job prior to getting pregnant so i got on birth control at 16 and stayed on it til last year when i graduated college and me and my boyfriend/current fiance of 8 years decided that we were ready. we came off birth control and got pregnant right away although we had 2 miscarriages and are trying again now for a healthy pregnancy.
Avatar m tn them- I take my placebo pills or just take nothing for the 4 period days. Often I will get typical period cramping and bloating but no blood during the time that my period should be coming. Pregnancy tests are negative (I did one blood test last time this happened, but I can't afford to do that constantly). I'm 24 and have NO OTHER PROBLEMS/SYMPTOMS other than this. My fear was ovarian cancer or early menopause, but again, this is literally my only symptom.
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 If even one pill is missed it could mess up the process of birth control doing it's job and preventing pregnancy. However even on birth control there is still a 1-3% chance she can get pregnant. So i would suggest using a condom at all times.
Avatar n tn I completely understand - when I was much younger, I went on a low dose birth control pill and became completely suicidal. I've also been on the mini-pill and Provera, and both of them contained norethisterone/norethinderone acetate and medroxyprogesterone acetate, which were HORRID progesterones...they made me gain 10 lbs, my boobs were constantly sore, I felt depressed, etc. But not with Yaz! Maybe younger women should wait until they hit perimenopause to go on the pill.
Avatar n tn I have been on and off birth control for about ten years. I am currently going on my 4th month of Lutera after about a year of not being on any oral contraceptive. I take the pill to regulate my period, as I have been diagnosed with PCOS and admit, I do not always take it at the same time, I skip days and then have to double up and I am sexually active (condoms are used).
