Hi.

Thanks for your query.

You need to remember the contraindication (where we can not use it)-If you have heart disease, uncontrollable hypertension,migraine,liver disease,gall bladder disease,breast tumor or fibroadenoma etc.If she dont have this problem you can jolly well take it.

Its side effects are- anorexia,nausea,vomiting, stomach upsate,weight gain,irregular bleeding.

Best wishes

Hi my name is Beth 22 year old. I m married and no children. I m using contraceptive pills for 3 years already. Is it true that a young woman should not use a contraceptive pills if she have not a kids yet because contraceptive pills can affect me. By the time i want to get pregnant i cannot get pregnant because of the pills that I ve been taking?

doctor1 MD

Me and my fiance have decide that we wont have kids for 2 years after our marriage. she told me that she will be fine if she uses oral contraceptives but i denied due to side-effects. i heard about this copper -t and i told her. so she is fine with it but is copper-t safe. can you also suggest me a good oral contraceptive pill, which will have less side effect and prevent 100% pregnancy

Hi, from this years january i was having my periods in an 13 to 16 days gap, where as i used to have it in 28 days gap. Last month i had unprotected sex on the 4th day of my periods. A week later i had sex again but this time i took an emergency contraceptive pill. Bt still i'm not having my periods till now where 16 days is already over. Am i pregnent?

I'm definitely not sexually active, but yesterday I found this purplish brownish discharge in my underwear. I'm supposed to start my period in about a week and am on birth control for my migraines. I put a tampon in and took it out later to see if I could figure out if it was blood or whatever it was. But it didn't smell right or look right. When I put it in the toilet it filled up with water and definitely showed that it was, in fact, a purple. Could you tell me what it possibly is? Maybe a side effect of the sronyx(the birth control I'm using)? I'm going off of that soon because of other side effects, so is that a possibility?

I've been having dark brown discharge about a week before my period. I am on birth control, I take the pills. Sometimes I take it a couple hours later than I should and I sex with my boyfriend. I had sex with my boyfriend when I was supposed to start my period in May but it never came because I spotted in the middle and had switched birth controls. I then had sex with him again but when I was on the pill on the 15th and he did NOT cum inside of me. Could I be pregnant?
