period

Avatar n tn but you can still spot and bleed sometimes while on the pill. even if you have been on the pill for a year. it happens. it doesnt usually mean anythings wrong.
Avatar n tn you can get pregnant on the pill if your on a low dose, i.e. your only on it for irregular periods.
Avatar f tn I swore them off for a while, but went on Yaz when I started getting spotting between periods and I wasn't having a period for 3 months at a time. The Yaz regulated my periods (of course), made the spotting go away, gave me light and not very painful periods, and somewhat improved the skin on my face and chest (although I never had a lot of acne). I did not notice an increase in fatigue. I felt pretty energetic throughout.
Avatar n tn I had the same thing with the Yaz. I was on Yasmin and switched to Yaz and promptly gained about 5 or more pounds. No problems at all with Yasmin, and I was on it for 5 or more years. I still work out like I did on Yasmin, and I've never eaten a lot, although, the Yaz does make me hungry all the time, and I can't seem to get rid of this bloating. I spot constantly and cramp. I have another friend that is the same way.
Avatar f tn I have specifically been taking Yaz for over a year, there was a mix up at the pharmacy about five months ago so I was on yasmin for one month but have been back on yaz for about 4 months. I have never really had much spotting between periods, but now I have been spotting for 5 days. It started on day 14 of my pill pack. I know that people on bcp often have spotting, but should it last this long. and can i do anything to prevent it, its getting annoying!!!
Avatar f tn I have been on the pill for 11yrs now and cant take how I am feeling anymore. I went on the pill for irregular periods, but since then I have been feeling blah, libido has decreased severely, I have sinus problems- I found out I have no allergies- so I think it is related to axiety, I worry constantly about everything; I get so nervous I get light headed sometimes. I thinkk I am going to try and stop the pills. I was just wondering if anyone had similar side effects from birth control pills.
Avatar n tn 5- Breakout on my face. 6- Cramps before, during and after the following 2 periods after stopping the pill. 7- Blood spots after sex, in the second month (after my first period and before my 2nd ). 8- Tiredness and procrastination. 9- Weight gain (2-3 kilos). 10- Some hair loss (until now), not critical. In general, I'm ok, but what really concerns me is the weight gain that is on the increase, although I've been monitoring what I eat, and have been on diet.
Avatar n tn After 5 months, I had to go back on the pill due to irregular and heavy periods, thanks to fibroids. After 2 months on the pill, my hair is again falling out at a rapid rate. I am hoping for a hysterectomy to finally be free of awful periods, and freedom from birth control pills. However, surgery can also be a stressor that leads to telogen effluvium. Oh well! I encourage anyone with shedding to read about the condition and see if it could be what is causing it with you.
681562 tn?1226597451 Are there any other people who have had mood swings, depression, spotting or anything else since starting to take Yasmin Birth Control Pill (YAZ) ?

Avatar f tn But 4 days ago I had un protected sex then took my pil 4 hours late. Then the next day I started on my white pills. I'm on yaz so I only have 4 white pills and I'm on the day where I should be starting my new pack and still no period. Is it possible to be late while on birth control? Or do I have a big chance of being pregnant? I'm getting really worried. And also, I had spotted in the middle of the month this month. This month will be my 3rd month on birth control. Can someone help!
963403 tn?1247180473 It is normal to have irregular spotting between periods, especially when you're new to the pill. The pill also makes your periods much lighter, because what the drug does is thin out your uterine lining. The thinner the lining, the lighter your period will be when it sheds. (That's what a period is-- the blood is what lines your uterus every month.
Avatar n tn stomach cramps or bloating are the common side effects of Yaz pill. These side effects usually decrease over the next few months. If the symptoms are persisting or severe it is best to consult your gynecologist and switch to some alternative mode of contraception. Do write to us again. Best luck!
Avatar n tn I've heard about the IUDs that you can get which offer birth control but don't have the added bonus of fewer cramps and shorter periods that the pill offers. Those might be another option. As for the pain during insertion, it may be possible that the pill is affecting your ability to create lubrication and therefore making it difficult/painful to get the penis in there...every once in awhile I'm not all the way "prepared" and it hurts right during insertion. Then it goes away.
Avatar n tn soo, i'm on the pill and usually on the four day into the sugar pills (monday) i get my period. this time it didn't come till wednesday and even then it was light spotting of both dark blood and light pinkish/red blood (but more dark then anything). and on thrusday i took a pregnancy test and it came up negative. i'm really nervous about this because i usually have a reg/heavy flow in general. and i had to start my new pack on friday...

Avatar f tn I was then supposed to be due on the 5th of October but i was a day late and i had light spotting, i had two negative tests on the 6th. I then bled for 2 days which finished on the 8th. Feeling tired, bloated, nausea, tender / swollen breasts. Am i pregnant????????!!!!
Avatar f tn I know it’s a lot of info, but I am worried I’m one of the 1% who get pregnant on the pill. I also understand there is always a chance I could be pregnant with unprotected sex and that I should take a test if my period doesn’t come on Friday. I’m scared because I’m a pretty good pill taker and I’m healthy and active- could it just be my body trying to adjust to the pill again, can I have spotting this soon before my period, what are the chances of being pregnant?
Avatar n tn The dosage apparently wasn't high enough because I was spotting in between periods so DR took me off it and put me on another pill.... 2 weeks later I started getting severe migraines and bloating. Not sure which pill or if a combo of the 2 caused it. I stopped taking that one and began getting heart palpitations where sometimes my heart would go up to 120 beats per minute while I was just being still... or after eating. One or all of those pills really screwed up my hormone balance...
603463 tn?1220630455 Also known as the Morning After Pill or Post coital Contraception, emergency contraception is safe, effective and easy to obtain. Emergency contraception is a therapy used to prevent pregnancy after unprotected intercourse, or in cases of contraceptive failure such as a broken condom. It involves taking only two doses of medication which can be completed within a 24 hours period. There are two different types of emergency contraception.
Avatar m tn The flow I hear it's very uncommon to have a period early while on the pill, and when I didn't have a withdrawal bleed at the end of the pack, I began to worry that I was pregnant. I've never skipped a withdrawal bleed, but I've never bled so much during the active pills. Even though I didn't bleed, I began my birth control as usual the Sunday after the placebo pills. I am now nearing the end of my second week of pills in this pack.
Avatar n tn Had Laproscopic laser sugery and then went on the Pill. Had 2 children and after stopping the Pill started to get the occasional dizzyness, hot flashes, diarrhea and nausea before and during my periods. It wasn't every month until the last 3 months. I have started to see a pattern and I have missed work due to the dizzy and nausea episodes. My primary care dr says it could be due to hormones...
Avatar n tn I have called my doctor but she hasn't gotten back to me so I've been doing some research on the web. Apparently, in the drug company's study of the drug, in the first 91 day pill cycle 63% of women experienced 7 or more days of bleeding or spotting and 29% experienced 20 or more days. It of course lessens over time.
Avatar n tn Well I would say if you have tested and they are negative your not pregnant...Being on the pill then going off throws your cycle in whirl....The pill controlled your cycle monthly then all of a sudden you stopped taking it..
Avatar n tn This will increase your chances of getting pregnant. I have had the same problem with irregular periods. I stopped taking the pill in March and have only had two periods since so my Dr. finally decided to put me on provera and clomid. I just finished my provera and once I start my period I may start the Clomid (on day 3) then I will be able to finally know when to have sex in hopes of getting pregnant. Good luck to you! And if you feel that Clomid could be right for you, then ask your doctor!
Avatar n tn I went on the pill and got preg with my first child in 1993. I was on the pill again after I had her and ten years later I got preg again with my second child. Now I have had a TL and still irregular and I still have a fear at times of getting preg. Yet statics show that a TL is a perm sterilization and the fear still there. I believe that if GOD wants you to have a baby...It will happen. I have also asked alot of OBGYN's and honestly I have never had a straight answer or an answer at all.
Avatar n tn I'm 29 and have this problem, but have never had the depo. I was on the pill for many years, but haven't been on it in 7 years. I have a 5 yr old.. so fertility was never an issue. I do have endometriosis and have had 2 surgeries related to that, but still spot after orgasm... ??? Who knows.
Avatar n tn then i went on the pill, and the first period i got on the pill was like a mad rampage, i thought i was internally bleeding. i could only wear a tampon for less than an hour without soaking through it, so i wore a tampon and extra extra mondo pads. after that though, things became more regular. i'm not saying that you all are going to have the same happy ending, because believe me, i still get elongated periods. the most recent one was a month long.
Avatar n tn - Stopped birth control (for personal reasons) (Yaz Light) after only 2 months of being on it on Aug 17th. - Period came Aug 23rd. - Had intercourse 3:00 a.m. on Aug 31st and the condom broke (for the first time EVER!!) I have to say I felt right then that I was going to get pregnant. - 8:00 a.m. Aug 31st I noticed A LOT of very stretchy cervical mucous. It was partially solidified, and I figured this was probably due to not having ovulated in a couple of months.
Avatar n tn what if i’ve never been on the pill or shot because my period is always brown since the beginning of this year and for the start of my period it’s dark red
