Answered by Dr. Das Arindam 38 minutes later

Thank you for posting a query.

Firstly, condom is the most safe and reliable contraceptive.

I am telling that because, apart from condom, there are birth control methods. But those all are hormonal agents which may be harmful sometimes. Now a days in our fast life having lots of problems, hormonal imbalance may also lead some serious problem.

But still, as you wanted to know, the best birth control method is taking oral contraceptive pills. During lactation, the drug of choice is progesterone. When she starts to have her periods, then she needs pills containing both progesterone and estrogen derivatives.

Another method is to have copper T containing hormonal agents. This is performed by gynecologist. It is available for varying time period like 3 year and more.

In case of both the methods, some unwanted side effects are present like irregular bleeding, spotting, white discharge, and many more.

For this reason, before starting any drug, you should visit a gynecologist for clinical examination and for prescribing the best drug or method accordingly.

Hope this information is suffices. Let me know, if you have any more question.

I saw my physician on Thursday of last week. From Monday, my beta had only gone from 385 to 556, and my progesterone went down from 10.1 to 8.8. I have been having severe cramps but no bleeding. According to my calculations/ovulation I should be no less than 5 weeks 5 days right now, but the transvaginal u/s they did on Thursday put me at 4 weeks 3 days...we re 5-7 days off. He made me cancel a road trip, because he didn t want me on the road when things went south . Does anyone have any experience with this? I miscarried with a blighted ovum around 9 months ago, and am concerned it s happening again.

Hi, i m 17 years old and two days ago i took the morning after pill Levonelle (Sunday morning) yesterday i started having some weird pains in my lower stomach, i don t know the name of the body part that is hurting..the pain is not unbearable or anything i m just worried to what it may be.. it kind of feels like i have trapped wind but when i push it hurts more and makes me feel like i need to pee. Could this have anything to do with taking the Levonelle? also I can t go to the doctors because my doctors only deals with people who have emergencies, and my local hopsital doesn t have an A and E anymore. I can t tell my parents, should I just wait to see if these pains get worse before doing anything?
