Hi Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
What is your age? Birth control pills are prescribed for women who are young and sexually active, not otherwise. While on Birth control Pills, the fertility is reduced which returns once the Pills are stopped. Older women should not be taking these as these are associated with serious side effects.
dear,birth control pills as the name suggests is for sexually active women who does not want pregnancy.So in first case if you are not sexually active there is no reason why you should take one.In any case if are planning to take in most the cases they are very safe and can be taken without any major issues.Just consult your doctor before starting it before basic examination.bye and take care.It will not affect future chances of pregnancy.

Birth control pills can be taken if prescribed by your doctor if it is to regularize the periods in case of irregular menses so you can take if you had the problem.They are hormonal pills and generally well tolerated except in few females cause nausea;vomiting ;weight gain which reduce after few days of discontinuation.As for any major side effect( like you fear of not getting pregnant )there is none.

Hi I am 31 year old female. I am in a live in relation with my guy for last 3 years. I have an active sexual relation with him. We always use precautions(condoms) during our sexual acts. I have had a regular 28 days period cycle always. But this month my periods were delayed for 9 days which got us both worried. I did the test twice and it came negative. Now i finally have my periods and they are normal. I want to shift to birth control pills and for that i wanted to consult a doc as i never used one before and i am also afraid of the side effects. Please suggest. I am a regular smoker too.

Yes, I have a 13 yr old that has been vomiting and has had constipated/diarrhea for a month now. She has been seen by her physician and was prescribed Prilosec and miralax. She appears to be full of stool ( according to her x-ray). She is still having dull stabbing pain in her stomach and is still vomiting daily. She expresses vomiting is not always with nausea. I hope she will not need an endoscopy. I am wondering if it s GERD or IBS. Thanks for your response.
My daughter is nine years old. She complains that her heart hurts or that it flutters or feels weird. Sometimes this is accompanied with vomiting and the shakes. Sometimes she says she feels like she can’t breathe right. She sweats a lot in her sleep or if she is active always seems to be a lot more than other kids. She is constantly thirsty. She has been to see a gastro, pulmonologist, and a cardiologist. She has been checked for asthma and was fine; they put her on an inhaler for when she is active. She had an EEG which was normal. She may have a mild reflux but not severe. She was also checked for Diabetes and came back negative. I feel like we are missing something help.
I have a 10 year old son that is very athletic, but is having terrible problems with constipation. After a rigorous ordeal with regards to his constipation, he lost 4-5 lbs of stool. Our pediatrician recommended Miralax BID, which causes him to have small stools, but he feels his stomach is fat or bloated and he just doesn t feel good. No nausea or vomiting. We have a friend that deals in homeopathic, kinesiology medicine and he thinks he has an overgrowth of yeast. He has a crack in his lower lip that has been very difficult to heal. We are getting very frustrated.
