Skipping your period on birth control side effects

Common Questions and Answers about Skipping your period on birth control side effects


Avatar n tn I'm 19 and I've been on Alysse birth control for about 2 years and I've been pretty good with taking them everyday and I always wait 7 days in between to allow for my period. I'm going away to a cottage for 4 days right in the middle of when I'm suposed to get my next period and I'm wondering if its safe for me to just continue with my next pack of pills and skip my period this one time because I don't want to have to worry about it the whole trip. What will the side effects be? If any?
Avatar n tn The doctors now say ANY birth control that shortens your period can cause this. Just trying to let people know!
Avatar n tn It is better to have your period than to skip it unless it is for medical reasons. They make birth control that is designed for you to only have 4 periods a year (Seasonale, Seasonique, etc). So talk with your dr, he/she can get you on something that will fit you.
Avatar f tn I would like to hear your opinions about Yaz/Yasmin Birth Control. Have you had any side effects? Has this pill been helpful to you? I have dedicated a support group website for women and girls who have previously or currently taking Yaz/Yasmin Birth Control. Please take a moment to view webiste, YazForum and post your experience while taking this medication. We need to hear your stories to make others aware of this birth control.
Avatar f tn For a year now, I have been on Apri, skipping sugar pills, and only getting my period four times a year. At first it was GREAT, I had no issues with break through bleeding, and my body seemed to accept the new routine pretty well. But then when I would get my period, it felt worse than when I was getting them every month. I told my gyno, and she switched me to Nortrel, same routine. I've been on Nortrel for about six weeks now.

Avatar n tn I recently looked up some info on excess levels of copper and the effects it has on your body and i now believe that the iud is the cause of my immune system being compromised along with other side effects. It was the only thing that changed and i don't know how i didnt put it together before! Your body is in perfect balance with the certain elements it needs and when you throw an added unnatural element in that throws the whole balance off! hence the yeast infectons and bacterial infections.
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 Hi, You were asking about side effects. I haven't had any negative ones. The diet has been very easy for me. The HCG controls the appetite. I make 64 oz of herbal & green tea mix and drink that daily before 1 pm and then switch to water and drink as much as I can up to another 64 oz averaging between 80-120 oz per day. Buy a postal scale to weigh your food the food scales aren't accurate enough. The food you're allowed is very limited not only in amount but in selection.
Avatar f tn Worked within 5 days for me. And my side effects was just mood swings. I had weight loss since I've been on it. And today would be month #4 for me and i wouldn't change birth control at all.
Avatar n tn As for the rest of you, if you are uncomfortable on seasonale and can't stand the side effects that it is causing you, change the type of pill your on. Don't suffer. There are different combinations out there. Though, if you are having problems with breast tenderness and moodiness, I think the ones that are lower in progesterone may be better.
Avatar n tn Is it like saying just taking longer birth control pills? What are the side effects? What are the benefits? Has FDA approved? Where i can search more about Yaz? Will it affect my future plan of having a healthy pregnancy? Also, i was told if i do want to get pregnant, i should wait 6 months after taking the birth control pills. is that true?
Avatar n tn I have been on birth control for about two years now. During last months pack i missed two pills. I got my period on September 23rd, however, my boyfriend and I had sex on the 26th because it was the second to last day of my period and my flow was light. Lately I have been having really bad indigestion problems and serious fatigue. Last week I randomly started bleeding but the blood was lighter than period blood both in quantity and color. My mood has been really bad as well.
1455812 tn?1288103369 I have never tried taking birth control to help the symptoms and have actually read on here that a lot of people who have tried birth control had worse palps. It's rough being a woman!!! Thanks again!
Avatar n tn 1 years on ortho cyclen, 2 years on the Nuva Ring. Before I got on birth control, I had abnormal periods, such as skipping months or getting 2 per month. The birth control regulated my period and I had no problems. I recently got off birth control and had one normal period immediately following. It has now been 4 months since I got off of the birth control and I have not had a period and I have not been sexually active in this time.
Avatar n tn I took my first dose of prometrium tonight. My dr has me on 3 doses a day vaginally. Fortunately I haven't had any side effects as of yet. I have a beautiful 5 year old baby girl and I had a chemical preg back in sept them a mc at 11 weeks on Jan 1st. My Hubby and I weren't planning on getting preg yet but it happened anyway (between 5-6 weeks right now). My doc saw my level was 12 and said it should be over 18 so i just hope the meds work.
Avatar n tn This month, my period started and it has been 3 weeks and I still have my period. I am a big woman, so I don't want to get on birth control just to gain more weight. Is there anyone who has maybe experienced this as well or has some kind of advise. I don't like having a period at all, and today when facing public I came home to find a period spot on the back of my pants. This is driving me crazy.
Avatar n tn Two days ago, I finally linked my period to feeling sick. I am 33 and not on birth control and have not been on it for 2 years. I will see my doctor on Wednesday and I am crossing my fingers that I do not have anything serious. My symptoms are impacting me and I am feeling depressed due to feeling sick so much.
61536 tn?1340701763 Do you (or have you ever) taken medication to help control your PVCs? If so, did it help, make them worse or cause no change? Yes. Im on 100mg Atenolol, for years now. I still have tons of palps...but I just think of how many I would have if I WASNT on the Atenolol. I have major anxiety issues I am on Xanax---like someone else here said, Xanax doesnt lessen the palps...but it lessens my terror when Im having them. 13.
Avatar n tn But it was a week before my period. But now, (during period) I'm getting upper chest/side/back pains on left hand side. Not found any painkillers yet to kill the pain, but using heat pads eases it a bit. I did have similar pains a couple of years ago, doctors told me it was growing pains, that was ongoing for a few months before it vanished.
Avatar m tn With this type of POTS it is important to keep any allergy issues under control. Birth control pills do seem to help some, but I am wondering about switching to those that suppress periods so that she won't have to deal with as much of this. I would think it could only help and plan to talk to her about it. I hate seeing her feeling so exhausted and hope to find something that will help. I will let you know if it helps if we do go that route. Please let me know if you do also. thanks!
Avatar n tn I have taken many birth control pills to regulate me....but I have all the side effects when my period comes. I even tried depro-vera, and I had my period for 9 months. I am desperate, and depressed about it. Please help!!!!
Avatar n tn Hello, I just have a question. I too was taking Clomid 50mg for 3 months - got my period the first 2 but the third month I ovulated but still no period. Took HPTs but they all came back negative. I am now in day 40 of my cycle. My breasts are extremely tender... and I had very light bleeding a few days before my period was due (implantation bleeding?). My question is - have any of you experienced "pregnancy" symptoms while not getting your period on Clomid? I am also peeing a lot.
Avatar n tn Anyway… I am 18 years old (19 in Feb) and for the past year I have not been having a period for 6 months and then staying on my period for more than a week. I am not on birth control and haven’t been for over a year.
Avatar n tn Have you been using any birth control that may still be in your system? If you are not ovualting then your doctor would give you something to help you regulate your system, not to harm you. Hope this helps. Keep me posted.
Avatar f tn any updates on your LIS surgery? results of your condition/surgery?
Avatar n tn the only thing the dr. wanted to do for me was put me back on birth control of course i said no so she put me on progesterone stating that this probably wont work but u can try it. well i did get my period but only while taking it.
Avatar n tn Be careful not to infect new chapstick by using it on your infected lips, use your fingers. Though, I advise keeping your lip reasonably dry. But DEFINATELY use SPF chapstick if you're going to be out in the sun. Your lips are especially sensitive now!! Sorry for the long post. I just wanted to be thorough! Hope this helps!
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.
