Birth Control :: Could Get Pregnant At 55?

Jan 21, 2016

I know this is going to sound strange, but I seriously want to know if anyone here has the answer to this question. I am going to be 55 yrs old in March. I have been on birth control pills most my life, but I went to a new doctor (GYN) years ago, and she told me that I didn't need to be on them because there was no possible way I could become pregnant at 53 without medical intervention.

I left her office happy until my sister told me that the doctor is WRONG and that I could get pregnant at 55! I don't have any idea if I have been through menopause, but I've not had any signs if I have. I called the doctors office back and talked to my previous doctor who wouldn't "confirm" if I could or couldn't, but she suggested I take the mini-pill (progesterone only). I am really sick of the pill and wanted to just stop taking it, but don't want to be foolish. Does anyone here know if this is a fact or not that at 55 I wouldn't be able to become pregnant anyway if off of the pill?

Birth Control :: Pregnant, While On Nexplanon?

I have had the nexplanon implant for a little over a year. Also, I have never had regular periods.

Last month(march)I had what I believed to be 3 separate periods. Almost exactly 11 days apart each. This month( April), I had one short 3 day period. And now my period tracker says im 11 days date for my expected period. I haven't had any menstrual cramps that I usually have.

Me and my boyfriend have been in a dry spell, these last couple months. but I believe the last time we had sex was January or February.

I have had heartburn like crazy, tender breasts, Lightheadedness, and am very fatigued.

None of which I really noticed, until the last 2 weeks.

Could I be pregnant?

Birth Control :: Pregnant On Implanon?

I have been on Implanon for almost 3 years with no problems at all. It expires in October and I am due to have it changed next week. For the last two weeks or so I have had all of the symptoms I had with all 3 of my pregnancies. Nausea, headaches, cramping, tender breasts, backache, frequent urination, increased vaginal discharge and MAJOR mood swings!! I took a test yesterday and it was negative but I am not yet late so I kind of expected that. My last period began 7/30 but it was light and short. If I am pregnant, will my obgyn be able to tell this is I go to my appt. on 8/28? I obviously do not want to replace it if I could be pregnant! Also I was reading that Implanon may not be as effective in overweight women and I am approximately 70 lbs. overweight. Does anyone know if this is true?

Birth Control :: Mirena For 2 Years And Now Unable To Get Pregnant

Getting pregnant was never a problem for me. Simple, he'd look at me, and bam I have two children. That is until I had the Mirena (5yr) left it in for 7 yrs due to no insurance at that time. I am now 31 and had the mirena out for over a year with no luck getting pregnant. There are times I feel like I am pregnant I get sore breasts, cramping but then I start my period. This month however I am having the same symptoms and my period is late. I knew I was ovulating BC of the egg white like discharge(sorry if tmi)that was about 14 days ago I took a test this morning and result was negative. Maybe i don't understand how all this works completely lol idk but my periods are either at the end of the month or the first of the month. There's no way i could be having symptoms of pregnancy this early and its just my period warning sign. I'm starting to think that leaving the mirena in for 2 years over the time it was supposed to come out and not having periods in 7 years has done damage to my body.

Birth Control :: Chances Of Being Pregnant While Using Condom/oral Contraceptive

I am 19 years old and have been with my boyfriend for nearly three years now. I am also dealing with some MASSIVE anxiety issues and really cannot have a child right now. Because I know this, my boyfriend and I are always extremely careful to use a condom in addition to me taking my birth control pill every day at a consistent time.

When I was 16 and became sexually active, I started Loestrin 24/Fe. This pill worked extremely well for me. However it has been discontinued and my doctor put me on Microgestin 1/20 Fe. I was on Microgestin 1/20 Fe for one cycle, and she then put me on Gildess 1/20 Fe. I have been told by my pharmacist and doctors that Loestrin 24/Fe, Microgestin 1/20 Fe, and Gildess 1/20 Fe all have the same ingredients and hormones. So I was not expecting any problems.

When I started Gildess 1/20 Fe, I randomly got my period very early on in the cycle when I was not supposed to. This obviously concerned me. I talked to my doctor and continued taking the pills and got my period again when I was supposed to. I also took two pregnancy tests just to be sure (they came back negative obviously).

So I started my next pack of Gildess 1/20 Fe. This is only my second pack of Gildess 1/20 Fe and I am about a week in. On the last week of my FIRST pack of Gildess 1/20 Fe (the placebo pill week), my boyfriend and I had intercourse (this occurred about a week ago). However we ALWAYS use a condom without fail as a backup method in addition to me taking my birth control pills and from what I can tell, we use to the condom correctly to our very best ability. He typically puts the condom on himself but I also try to make sure he puts it on correctly, and that it has not broken, etc.

However, two nights ago I noticed my breasts felt sore and now I am completely freaking out. I have experienced breast soreness before but this is really scaring me because of the problems I experienced with my period on my first month of Gildess and because this is a new pill to me in general. I know that breast tenderness is sometimes an early pregnancy symptom. I grew so comfortable with Loesterin 24/Fe and now I feel so scared all the time that I may be pregnant.

I take my birth control as consistently as possible. It's one of the very first things I do when I wake up in the morning. Sometimes I worry though because I wake up later on the weekends than I do on the weekdays and I know it's also very important to take your pill at the same time everyday :/

I am honestly so scared all the time that I may be pregnant because I really cannot handle that right now. So I am wondering, if I take my birth control pills as consistently as I can and use a condom every time I have sex, what are my chances of getting pregnant? From what I can tell and research I have done I am being almost as safe as I possibly can without abstaining from sex altogether. But still, I have this constant nagging fear, especially since I am experiencing the breast tenderness. But I have also read that breast soreness is a side effect of some birth control pills, especially when you start a new one. Should I be scared? I just don't know if I have reason to be scared, or if it's my anxiety kicking in, or if I should possibly talk to my doctor about being put on a different birth control pill, or what

I am just so worried that maybe something went wrong with both the pill and the condom. Like what if my pill wasn't effective because I do not take it at the EXACT same time every single day (although I take it as close to the same time as I can and I try really really hard, it's just that sometimes my schedule varies because I wake up at different times for class, appointments, etc) and something happened to the condom, like it got snagged or we didn't check it properly or what not. Ugh I don't know, I'm just really really scared and I do not like it

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

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?
