Birth Control :: Ovulation And Birth Control Pill, Still New To Taking Pill

Apr 21, 2014

I consider myself to still be new to taking the pill as a form of birth control. Just when I think I have it figured out, something new would happen which would make me doubt it's effectiveness.

I am currently using Chateal, which contains 21 active pills and 7 placebo pills. After 6 months of taking it as directed, I assume my body should be used to the side effects. I would get nausea from taking it so I switched to taking it at night. I have been taking it that way for 3 months now.

But I have noticed since first started taking it, I would get severe cramps and backaches during the second week of the pack for a few days. I assumed I was ovulating while on the pill because I noticed my cervical mucus changes throughout the month. My understanding though is the pill is to prevent ovulation thus preventing pregnancy.

Can you ovulate while on the pill? Is my birth control pill type too low of a dose for me? Could it be something else?

Bleeding Due To Ovulation, Implantation Or Missed Birth Control Pill?

I have not had a period since June of 2013 and i got off the depo shot in December 2013, and I had unprotected sex on the 27th and 28th of June, i took the plan b pill on June 28th two hours before having unprotected sex again! During the week of July 6th I had bad cramping so I got on the pill (do not know the name if it) and was taking it daily, then I forgot to take it during the beginning of the 14th week, because the pill was making me nauseous. On July 16th I had dark red and brown blood in my underwear, this bleeding only last for 5 minutes and that night i took one of my birth control pill and on the 17th when i wiped i had light brown on my tissue. so I took a pregnancy test the same day and it came back negative, so i took another one the next day and it came back negative too!

my question is was this ovulation or implantation bleeding or did i bleed because i missed taking my birth control pills?

Birth Control :: Taking The Pill - Non Stop Bleeding For 16 Days

I had my implanon removed the beginning of October and immediately started taking the pill. I have now been non stop bleeding for 16 days. Should this be happening even while taking the pill? I would think the bleeding would be stopping or at least slowing down at this point, but it's not!

Birth Control :: FromCombined (Gederal) Pill To The Mini (Cerelle) Pill?

I have been on the combined pill (Gederal) for a couple of years now but my doctor wants to change me to the Mini Pill (Cerelle). My Combined pill is perfect so i don't want to change. I mentioned that i had one migraine with visual disturbance and she explained to me that even one of these migraines is a reason to come off the combined pill. The combined Pill regulated my periods but she explained that this mini pill is now going to make me irregular.

Birth Control :: Fast Heart Rate After Taking Cerazette Mini Pill

I took Cerazette for 9 days, felt so ill i came straight off it. Anxiety attacks, racing heart, was off work for 8 weeks it was a nightmare. its now 3 months on, my periods are getting somewhat back to normal, but i've been left with a fast heart rate. I've been rushed to A&E a few times its been so fast i thought i was having a heart attack. i'm now on beta blockers to keep it under control until it's investigated. its ok sat down, but if i try and walk or do anything it goes through the roof.

I've heard of other women that have had this but i'm desperate to find out whether it will eventually go back to normal on it's own or has it left me with long term issues.

Hair Loss :: Birth Control Pill

I'm a 23 year old female with pcos. About 5 months ago I started taking bcp to help regulate my period. I was prescribed level. It worked great until about 3 months when I noticed that my hair started shedding like crazy. I went to my doctor who switched me onto zoely, which is supposed to contain a natural estrogen.she said to go back in 2.5 months and if my hair loss hasn't stopped by then we can discuss other options. I've been on zoely for one month so far and if anything my hair loss has increased. Does anyone have any experience with switching bcp and how long it takes for the hair loss to stop? My hair has thinned quite a bit and I'm scared that continuing taking the pill could make it worse. But also stopping the pill I know can trigger another bout of hair loss too.

Birth Control :: 50 , No Periods 4 Years - Still Take Pill?

I had hormones tested and I am in menopause. I have not had a period in 4 years. Only been off the pill for a month after being on it for a long time. I am told I should still use condoms for birth control, which myself and hubby don't like at all. Chances of getting pregnant may not be likely but can happen. I really prefer to use nothing, but I don't want to end up with a pregnancy at this age. Anyone in their 40's and 50's have gone through this? What was your choice of birth control when the doctor takes you off the pill? Should I not worry about it and use zero protection? Do you think my doctor is being ridiculous?

Birth Control :: Unprotected Sex And Missed My Pill

So in my first week of BC I missed my 6th pill, and my boyfriend and I had unprotected sex, he did not pull out. When I remembered I took my missed pill and my pill for that day. I then missed another pill and had unprotected sex, he did not pull out. This was during my normal ovulating time, I was in the bathroom today and wiped to find brown spotting. I'm not sure if I could be pregnant or if the spotting is related to missing the pill.

However, about a month ago I started spotting, then it turned to bleeding which has required the use of feminine hygiene products every day.

I want to take a break from my birth control and give my body a chance to refresh.. I just want to know - will I remain protected from pregnancy if I take a week off (as I have not at all)?

Birth Control :: Microgynon 30 Late Pill

I take Microgynon 30 and have been for 10 months, I've never missed a pill or taken one late until this month. I take it at 8.10am everyday but on 26th June took it at 10.20am instead (2 hours 10 minutes late).

I had condomless sex 3 times in the week before (20th, 21st, 23rd), will I still have been protected?

I then waited seven days to have sex again after I took it late.

Birth Control :: Morning Sickness After Pill

I'm 17 years old and curious. I tried speaking to my doctor today but he was busy so I need a reply. I'm on a birth control pill. I took my first one last night at 6:15pm, I then felt normal. I woke up at 5:45am and felt sick in my stomach. I vomited at 7am. I also had severe pain in my stomach , back and boobs to the point where I couldn't walk. Is this because of the pill? Or is it just a virus. I took my second one again at 6:15pm today just to see if the same thing happens tomorrow morning. If it does, i'll be seeing my doctor. But for now, does anyone have any answers?
