Question: Hi, i am on my XXXXXXX pill and I am really worried because i missed one pill the eight day but drank the missed and days pill together the next day. To be sure I took a plan b pill about 30 hours after the intercourse. Can I be pregnant? Also Its my 7 day break from pill and I havent gotten my period.

Brief Answer: It is unlikely that you are pregnant Detailed Answer: Hello XXXXXXX Thanks for posting on XXXXXXX I will like to start by saying that next time you miss a pill, do not double, just continue taking the next day single dose (but do not double). Then, given your description, it is unlikely that you are pregnant if you took Plan B pill 30 hours after unprotected sex as it is usually effective when taken for less than 72-120 hours. Now I am curious as to why you decided to take plan B despite you already being on yasmin? Is it because you panicked after missing the pill? Plan B and XXXXXXX are both used for birth control and are hormone based which means taking double dose XXXXXXX plus plan B can actually interfere with your cycle, so could explain why you have a delayed period. My suggestion is that you stay off any pills until you start seeing your menses again and if for the next 1-2 weeks you do not see, then you will have to do a pregnancy test to rule it out (despite being on birth control pills). Talk to a gynecologist if you feel that the problem has become complicated but I do doubt if this is the case. Hope this helps and wish you the best. Dr. Nsah

Thank you very much for the answer. I took plan b because my boyfriend ejaculated inside me the same day i missed it so i missed it. Do you think this changes things?

Brief Answer: Does not change much actually Detailed Answer: Thanks for updating XXXXXXX and your welcome. Well it was a wise decision taking the plan b but it is not advisable mixing up hormone based pills all together. Daily birth control pills usually can come with their own side effects especially when overdosed. So in the future, try avoiding such incidence. Just keep a cool mind and allow time to pass for your menses to come back naturally. Do not forget that being stressed out on its own can also cause menstrual irregularity such as delayed period. Just stay positive until your flow can start again. Then you can start the pills all over. Hope this helps further Dr. Nsah

Hi I have been taking Diane 35 since I was 17 years old, I m 41 now and I stopped the pill 3 weeks ago. I am a very active person but lately I have been feeling lazy, I don t have the desire to workout and I m feeling depress. Is this a related side effect to be off Diane 35?

Hello, Since Monday i have been feeling sick, have a sore lower back, feel dizzy a lot of the time and have been crying a lot for no reason. I am due on my period this week i don t think i could be pregnant as i have been taking the pill . My periods usually are no cause for concern at all. I still have an appetite and have been eating well when the nausea settles down, it doesn t take long for it to come back though. Do you know what this could be? Should i go see a doctor? Thank you Becky

Hi, I am currently trying for a baby. I have only been off the pill since the beginning of May, after I had just finished a period. A few days later, I bled again. I have had unprotected sex a couple of times and I now feel bloated, constipated, my nipples are becoming more and more sore. I am also weeing a little more than I used to. I know it s quite early. I have done a few pregnancy tests and they have both been negative. Ovulation tests have also been negative, so I don t quite know what the think. Could the body changes be due to coming off the pill? I didn t have these symptoms last time I cam off the pill though. Thanks, Kelly.
