Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
right now you are protected for pregnancy.If your periods do not start during the seven day break then you must wait longer for them to start before starting the next packet of tablets. Sometimes it happens when you are taking pills for a long time.

I have been taking the combined pill for 30 years. I have no children and do not wish to have any. I was put on the pill for severe acne when I was 15. My Dr is insisting I come off Yasmin and switch to Cerazette - I am in good health, don t smoke and really do not wish to change. My Dr says Yasmin is considered dangerous and likely to be withdrawn as a pill and at the age of 45 I am getting more at risk of breast cancer (none in the family) and clots. I would rather go to another Dr than switch? Can you provide any guidance?

Been on Cerazette for 3 weeks and have bled constantly for the last 12 days. It s a brownish colour with hints of dark red. I also took the morning after pill on the same day I started the Cerazette. I want to know when I will stop bleeding or whether to change my pill as it is getting in the way of my sex life

To who it may concern, I appreciate your help a lot. I could not find the answer online, and I currently don t have a personal physician to ask. I am eighteen years old, and I plan to go back on my combined birth control oral contraceptive called ,Tri-Sprintec. I have a question that worries me a lot. If this birth control pills are triphasic, have three different phases, each week has a different amount of progesterone hormone, so if I throw up in one hour after taking a pill and it is most likely missed and take next one from the same phase, will it reduce the effectiveness of my birth controls because of taking,in this case, six instead of seven pills of that phase according to the whole cycle ?

If I use Lutera, the birth control pill, as a contraceptive and take 5 white pills and after 12 hours 5 more, how do I get back on track with the pills? Do I just finish the pack and start another one right after or weight till after my period to start another one?

Hi! I'm 21 years old and i've been taking nordette for about 4 months now. I'm sexually active and am also a smoker so I'm really scared of what that may cause. I have heard about these POP's or progestin only pills and i'm really not sure if nordette is classified as one. Your replies will be deeply appreciated.
