Can I start taking birth control pills after 2 weeks from my period ?

Hi, I would like to start taking my birth control pills again, but I had my period 2 weeks ago. Is it OK to start them now, or do I have to wait until I have my next period? 32, 5 5\

It s my first time using birth control pills and I got the set of pills (Lutera 28 day pill) about two months ago. The nurse told me to start the Sunday (which my period was supposed to come that Sunday or Monday). But for some reason my period hasn t come and it s been 9 weeks! (I m a virgin so I can t be pregnant). I finally got it today and I m not sure when to start it. Today is a tuesday, and I have finals this week I don t want to take the pill today because I don t know how my body will react. 1. So should I start this coming Sunday, or can i take it any time between today and and the day my period ends? 2. When I start my first pill, should I start with the hormone pill (white) or inactive (pink) pill? 3. I will be going on a week long family trip in the summer (July) so when should I take my pills to plan a missed period during that time according to the trip? 4. I would prefer my periods to come during the week like mon-friday. how should I know what day to take it? Please help. Thanks!

I started on birth control pills for the first time in December 2013 and noticed some anxiety after 3 weeks of being on it. I asked my gynecologist if the medication could cause this and she said yes. I began having more anxiety and what felt like panic attacks. So I just stopped the med on February 17 th I feel like I m still having the anxiety and sadness. I did start a period today and know my cycle is now messed up. My last period was 2 weeks ago. My question is what type of doctor can I go to to get an anti anxiety medication? I feel like I m going crazy

Hi, I've been on ovranette for about four years as my dr thinks that my periods were causing my epileptic seizures, over the last few weeks I've had some bleeding every few days. I don't follow the four week cycle, I'm prescribed the pill for every day without a seven day break so why am I bleeding?

About a year ago, I started seeing white spots on my legs...they have multiplied rapidly. The dermatologist diagnosed it as Vitiligo. I am currently applying Pigmento ointment (charak). I was sent Vitiligo 30 sublingual pills from Biogetica, as well as Pigmento Tablets. I am a breast cancer survivor (2), and have had reconstruction. I am 68, and 5 4 tall...weigh 154 lbs. I am really scared to ingest the pills for fear that it will do liver damage. One of the pills contain Arsen Sulph . How harmful is this? Please advise. Thank you. Juliet

Hi me and my bf had unprotected sex last month before my period and due to my work schedule I wasn t able to visit the clinic until the following Monday which was the fifth day afterwards after I took the pill I had sore breast, hot flashes and lower back pain then I got what I thought was my period which was extremely lighter then normal and brown. Usually my period last about 6or 7 days this last time it was about 4 to 5 pasty, dark brown, and some days wouldn t bleed at all then spot the next. I took a test (a cheap 99 cent store one) and it said negative. This month it s time for me to have my period again and I have no signs of it coming. No bloating, salt craving, mood swing, sharp pains...nothing. I m not pregnant right??
