Question: Hello doctor, I am 29 yes old and I am getting married on 28th August. I usually get my periods delayed by 6-7 days every month. In july I got my periods on 17th and this time I want to prepporn my periods. Is there any medicine that can be taken to prepone my periods or shall I take medicine to postpone? If I need to postpone then for how long I can take medicines to postpone it as there will be rituals after marriage also. Thanks in advance.

Detailed Answer:

I read your query.

1) It is better to postpone your periods.

2) You can start having oral contraceptive pills ( OCP )prescribed from your doctor.

3) These pills can help to postpone the periods as well as provide contraception.

4) You can start OCP anytime now.

Let me know if you have any other difficulties.

Hello Doctor,
I have a query. Me and my GF are planning to have unprotected sex around Sept 2nd week. Today is the first day of her periods and she wants to take the Althea oral contraceptive pills today onwards. Would it be safe for us to indulge in unprotected sex by say around Sept 7th. Thanks.

I am currently on my first month of lutera birth control pills, and my partner and I had unprotected sex twice in a week on my third week of the pack. I am worried that I did not give my body sufficient time to adapt to the birth control hormones. Also, another factor that adds to my worry is that i am also taking 5 hydroxytryptophan for anxiety issues. I am not sure whether or not these could have had adverse effects on the pill or not. I took Emergency contraceptive twice , and now I am clueless as to what to expect. I am currently on my forth placebo pill and still no period. Is pregnancy an issue here?.

It is said that when first taking ginet-84 contraceptive pill you should wait two week before fully protected, and one week if you have missed a pill. So once you have taken the sugar pills (to induce your period) are you fully protected once it s stopped or do you have to wait a week like you ve missed a pill?
