as you have taken the pill very less chance to get pregnant. but the emergency pll can make your periods irregular by 7 to 8 days. so if you will not get your period , get a pregnancy test done.take care

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 had sex a month ago with my boyfriend and used the pullout method and he did not cum in me.I am on birth control and use it one time everyday. I took a first response pregnancy test 4 days before my expected period and it came out negative. I got my period on time. Took a pregnancy test towards the end of my period (no blood) and it acted like it didn t work. The gold digital response clock didn t move at all when I had barely peed on it in the morning so I left it on the counter and it said yes after 5 hours. I freaked out and took 3 more that day and they all came out negative... I m scared and don t want to be pregnant, help!

My last period was on the 10 th of august and went till the 18th. Me and my partner had sex on the 21st of this month, but he just rubbed on my clitoris and a little cum came out. My next period was due on the 6th but it didn't come. Since then I have done 4 pregnancy tests all negative. I went to the doctor but he said to wait another 1 to 2 weeks. I have all the symptoms of being pregnant. So could I be pregnant?

I had sex on the 5th of April without any kind of protection. Im not sure if im pregnant and we hadn't had any sexual intercourse untill yesterday. But when we tried it i felt like my boyfriend was hitting the back of my vagina, it caused alot of pain. Im not sure what it was. I have had 2 d&c and Im not sure what the process is called but three years ago while i was delivering my placenta my uterus turned inside out and I had to get it fixed.

Hi, my friend is currently having an active sex life. And she was not yet ready to get pregnant. I told here to go into a doctor and ask for the specific BCP for her to be able to be safe from unwanted pregnancy and still to continue having her active sex life without worries. But she's too afraid. Here workmate told her to by gynera from the drugstore. Do you think this are going to be safe for her?. thanks.
