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 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 f tn I was on the birth control pill I wasn't doing so good skipping them or taking them too late so I just stop taking it all together my February period was two weeks long n I had sex march 11th but I didn't get a march period could I be pregnant?
Avatar f tn I skipped my period in April. I have taken 4 pregnancy tests and all of them have come out negative. I am, however, under some stress. i just moved 600 miles away from home. and i'm late for this month. what's up?
Avatar f tn she means not taking the placebo birth control pills ...in effect skipping your periods by going straight back to the b.c. pills with the hormones. You can apparently do the same with the patch as well ...just keep putting one on every week instead of going 'off' for that fourth week. As for it affecting conception, I don't know how it affects that. There are millions of women out there who already have problems getting a period each month and knowing when they're ovulating .
Avatar f tn I have been on birth control for a year now and I decided I was going to skip my period, because my boyfriend was coming in town for the weekend. Everything went fine and I did not have my period, but now I am feeling the consequences. I am now on the second week of my new pack and I am spotting like crazy and my breast are very sore and larger than normal. Also, I am breaking out pretty bad and just feel very tired. I was wondering if there is any way I could be pregnant?
Avatar m tn I had unprotected sex with someone on April 17th and again on April 23rd and April 24th. The last day of my birth control (before my placebo pills) was on April 24th. I was supposed to start my period on April 27th (I always start on Wednesdays during my placebo pills). I skipped my period by starting another pack of birth control because it was my graduation weekend and I didn't want to have any accidents in my white dress.

654887 tn?1224560342 Hi i have a serious question...i've been on birth control for a month and a half now and i had an event comming up this weekend (my birthday) so i continued the next pack instead of taking the sugar pills and starting my period...and last night me and my bf decided to have sex without a condom and he finished in me...will i be pregnant?...i have never missed a pill only a few time took them a little late.
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 m tn I am currently on TriNessa birth control and this is my 2nd month of being on the pill. I have a vacation planned in about 2 weeks and the timing lines up perfectly with when I am supposed to be on the 7 sugar pills. This means I will have my period during my vacation. I REALLY want to avoid this. Is it okay for me to skip the 7 sugar pills and go straight to taking a new pack of birth control, therefore skipping my period?
Avatar f tn I had tried skipping my period on February and doubled up on the pill (I am on ortho-tricyclen lo) however it failed and I was heaving breakthrough bleeding within the tenth day of new pack. I followed the nurses advice in stopping that pack and having a period to stop the bleeding. I started a new pack but then had unprotected sex with my boyfriend.
Avatar f tn I'm on birth control ortho tri cyclen lo and I take it at the same time every day. On June 12 I began taking two antibiotics for a course of two weeks that you took twice daily. I was on vacation and my period was supposed to come the week of my vacation (June 13-24) so instead of taking my week of sugar pills I started my new birth control pack to skip my period while on vacation. June 18 I had sex. We used a trojan condom that did not break.
Avatar f tn I’m currently on sprintec for birth control and i like to skip the last week in the pack to prevent bleeding. When i do this i do not have enough pills to keep taking the next pack. My pharmacy will not refill until it’s time. What can i do?
Avatar f tn I highly doubt that you're pregnant if you've had a negative blood AND urine test. Symptoms and signs don't mean you are, and if you're 2 months late that's more than enough time for a test to show accurately. Birth control can easily symptoms/signs identical to pregnancy, as well as eliminating your cycle. If you are really convinced you're pregnant (which can also cause pregnancy symptoms) see your doctor again for blood work.
Avatar n tn I have been taking desogen (apri) birth control for over 2 years and have not yet missed my period for over a day. this is the first it has not been consistent. I am sexually active with a steady partner in a monogamous relationship. I am not ready for a child and need to know if I should seek a morning after pill, take my birth control for next month instead of my placebo pills to try to start my period, or what other options I have.
Avatar f tn Skipping the pill will not cause damage, it just makes for unreliable birth control and some irregular periods. I think that you should visit your doctor and see what is going on. Good luck.

Avatar f tn My last period ended valentines day and then i was on the bcp for two months straight (i missed a day or two here and there) my last pill was march 28th i think and typically i get my period 2-3 days after i take my last pill but now, two weeks later and still no period, should i take a preg test or wait it out longer to see if my system just wacked out?
Avatar f tn Last night I caught myself eating pickles grapes and ham all on one plate after dinner and my boyfriend just looked at me and said are you pregnant again?? Because I was exactly like this when I was pregnant with my daughter when I was about 3-4 weeks along my appetite just boosted and that's how we knew I was pregnant, I know testing is the only way to know but I prefer to wait so I get an accurate reading. Until then, should I continue my birth control?
