Avatar m tn I'm 20 years old and I've been on the pill for 2 years now. I started out on ortho tri cyclen lo, but I switched to loestrin 24 fe about 6 months ago. I have a steady boyfriend but we go to differnt colleges so during the summer I'm sexually active, but during the school year I'm not. During my last pill pack, at the end of the summer, I took one pill late in the third week of active pills.
Avatar f tn I was on Seasonale for almost 4 years. I loved it, but I gained A LOT of weight (I am 5'0" and have always weighed about 115...I got up to almost 150.) and was actually diagnosed with type II diabetes. I also take Modafinil (Provigil) which is known to lower the effectiveness of birth control...but I have never had any problems with that whatsoever, thank goodness!

My health insurance didn't cover Seasonale but it does cover Ortho - SO, i'm taking Ortho like Seasonale, and paying for the extra packs! Hopefully it will work out.. we'll see..

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 n tn Hi, I don't have reguar periods anymore due to birth control use, but I have since stop using all birth control methods. My last period was April 26, 2005. I just started getting periods every month in Dec of 2004. June 22, 2005 my period was light and reddish brown at about 3:30 am. Then later on it started to get heavy like a period but didn't stay that way because when I went to put on a super tampon it hadn't made it to the pad and it was only enough for a panty liner.
