Interaction between Prednisone and birth control?
There has been some studies showing an interaction between the two medications, resulting in increase of prednisone in your body. This increase in prednisone may cause unwanted side effects such as fluid and electrolyte disturbances, hypertension, hyperglycemia, behavioral disturbances, psychiatric reactions. Talk to your doctor ASAP if you are experiencing any side effects since starting the drugs, especially if they are unbearable. Prednisone is a very effective drug and usually short-term in use. Therefore, the doctor may keep you on it for the short duration due to benefits outweigh the risks.

This is what birth control does . The birth control pill (also called "the Pill") is a daily pill that contains the hormones estrogen and progesterone that prevent pregnancy. Most birth control pills are "combination pills" containing a combination of the hormones estrogen and progesterone to pr…event ovulation. A woman cannot get pregnant if she doesn't ovulate because there is no egg to be fertilized. The Pill also works by thickening the mucus around the cervix, which makes it difficult for sperm to enter the uterus and reach any eggs that may have been released. The hormones in the Pill can also sometimes affect the lining of the uterus, making it difficult for an egg to attach to the wall of the uterus.. birth control . birth control decreases the amount of eggs your body releases therefore reducing risk of pregnancy. helps prevent you from getting pregnant.

Answer . go to a gynocologyst and ask them to put you on birth control.
Prednisone is a synthetic hormone. It cannot be stopped abruptly; it must be tapered down per doctor's instructions.
Medical birth control (the pill, NuvaRing, IUDs, etc) can be obtained by asking your doctor or nurse practitioner. However, some doctors require a gynecological exam and pap smear before they will prescribe them to you. This requirement is not recommended by the American College of Obstetrics and Gy…necology, so talk to a few offices to find out if their practices are up-to-date. Condoms, spermicides, and other forms of birth control can be purchased at almost any pharmacy or convenience store such as Wal-Mart, Walgreens, or Rite-Aide. Even some gas stations sell condoms. You can obtain birth control by seeing a gynaecologist or by going to Planed Parent Hood!

Methods of Birth Control . Male birth control methods include withdrawal of the male before ejaculation (the oldest contraceptive technique) and use of the condom, a rubber sheath covering the penis. The condom, because of its use as a protection against sexually transmitted diseases, including …AIDS , has become a frequently used birth control device.. Contraceptive methods for women include the rhythm method-abstinence around the most likely time of ovulation-and precoital insertion into the vagina of substances (creams, foams, jellies, or suppositories) containing spermicidal chemicals. The use of a diaphragm, a rubber cup-shaped device inserted before intercourse, prevents sperm from reaching the uterine cervix; it is usually used with a spermicide. Contraceptive sponges, which are impregnated with a spermicide, also are inserted into the vagina before intercourse and work primarily by acting as a barrier to the sperm. Intrauterine devices, or IUDs, are variously shaped small objects inserted by a doctor into the uterus; they apparently act by creating a uterine environment hostile either to sperm or to the fertilized egg.. The birth control pill, an oral contraceptive, involves a hormonal method in which estrogen and progestins (progesteronelike substances) are taken cyclically for 21 or 84 days, followed by 7 days of inactive or no pills. The elevated levels of hormones in the blood suppress production of the pituitary hormones (luteinizing hormone and follicle-stimulating hormone) that would ordinarily cause ovulation. An oral contraceptive formulation that utilizes no inactive pills and is taken every day (and completely suppresses menstruation) also exists. Estrogen and progestins may also be delivered through the weekly use of a contraceptive skin patch or the monthly use of a vaginal ring (a flexible plastic ring inserted in the vagina); both slowly release the hormones they contain.. Sterilization of the female, often but not always performed during a Cesarean section or shortly after childbirth, consists of cutting or tying both Fallopian tubes, the vessels that carry the egg cells from the ovaries to the uterus. In male sterilization ( vasectomy ) the vas deferens, the tubes that carry sperm from the testes to the penis, are interrupted. Sterilization, in most cases irreversible, involves no loss of libido or capacity for sex.. No contraceptive yet devised is at once simple, acceptable, safe, effective, and reversible. Some, such as the diaphragm, condom, and chemical and rhythm methods, require high motivation by users; the pill, which must be taken daily, sometimes induces undesirable side effects, such as nausea, headache, weight gain, and increased tendency to develop blood clots. The IUDs, although requiring no personal effort or motivation, are often not tolerated or are expelled, and they sometimes, particularly if poorly designed, cause uterine infection, septic abortion, and other problems.. If birth control fails (or is not used), doctors may prescribe several large doses of certain oral contraceptives as "morning after" pills; the high level of hormones can inhibit the establishment of pregnancy even if fertilization has taken place. Mifepristone, or RU-486, the so-called abortion pill, is effective within seven weeks after conception and requires close medical supervision. It was first approved in Europe and was tested in the mid-1990s in United States, where it was approved in 2000. Another experimental technique is immunization against human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG), a hormone secreted by a developing fertilized egg that stimulates production of progesterone by the ovary; the effect of the anti-HCG antibody would be to inactivate HCG and thereby induce menstruation even if fertilization occurred..

i think there is a connection... i cant say exactly what... but yes there is.... at least that's what i have seen...
\nBleeding between periods is nothing abnormal, but if you experience a great deal of pain or are just concerned, you should consult a medical professional. If it is a major problem for you, you may want to switch pills to see if a different brand works better.
How long will a prednisone injection control your sciatic nerve pain injected into the buttock not the nerve?
Depending on the type of shot (whether it was an epidural or just a steroid shot), and which nerve is being compressed by the disk, and how bad it is, will determine how long it takes to start working. Also, if your doctor really put the needle in your buttock and not the small of your back where th…e pain is (not the nerve - it takes a special procedure for that) then I'd wonder what he/she is doing, and think about getting another doctor. That's not where it's supposed to go. Steroid shots don't control or reduce pain - they reduce the inflammation of the disk pressing on the nerve and the back spasms associated with it. It's the back spasms and the nerve pressure which cause the pain in your legs. Depending on the type of shot, there's sometimes a specific period and procedure for how long they wait. For example, if it's an epidural (you'll know if it is - before I had major structural problems in my back that needed working on I used to get epidurals all the time - they're not fun. Imagine a steel shank being sunk into your back next to your spine about 4 inches to deliver the steroid. In those cases, they allow for 3 shots, with checking every week to see how much you've improved. If you haven't improved they give you another at the end of the first week, second and third weeks. If you don't have any improvement by the third shot, they start talking about surgery, but in reality it's after the second shot - they rarely give a third. If you've just gotten a steroid shot to reduce the muscle spasms, it'll wear off pretty fast, within about 2-3 days - they don't last long at all. If you can stand to take Flexeril, it'll loosen you up and stop the back spasms and allow the pressure on the nerve to relax. Trick is you have to take it for a couple of days to really notice the effects, which will knock you out pretty good. Other than that, your doctor probably told you the standard lines about lying on your side in a fetal position, pillow between the legs to reduce hip pressure and spine pressure, etc. I've actually found it's more comfortable laying on the floor with your butt up againd the front of a couch (the bottom) and your legs on the couch itself, so your back is flat on the floor. The idea is to reduce all pressure on the flat of the back, so the nerve pressure can relax and the spasms can stop. Sciatic pain is bad, but trust me, do what your doctor tells you to do, and use the 'net to learn as much as you can about your particular problem. There's much worse pain that you could have to endure if you don't take care of yourself. After 3 major spinal surgeries, and having to take some of the strongest opiates on the planet for the past 9 years and likely the rest of my life, I WISH all I had to deal with was sciatic pain. I relish those days. If a shot doesn't last long enough for you, talk to your doctor about getting a Prednisone dosepak or a 9 day course - that'll loosen you up real good. 2 years ago before my last operation my L3 disk finally collapsed (when I mean collapse, I mean bone on bone with the vertebrae - that's the result of the disease I have) none of my opiates were putting a dent in the pain, and as a result of constant chronic pain for the past 11 years (I've had disk problems for 20) I have an extremely high pain and opiate tolerance. I had an idea about using Prednisone to reduce the inflammation enough for the opiates to work, as I also have asthma, and I normally have a 9 day course on hand for emergencies. That did the trick - I wound up doing several 9 day courses (if you don't know what "courses" mean with Prednisone, it's 3 pills a day for 3 days, then 2 pills a day for 3 days, then 1 pill a day for 3 days. You can't just stop Prednisone or you run the risk of heart failure). I gained 60 lbs in the 2 months I had to do it before my surgery, but it at least allowed the opiates to work. So consider it as a possibility. There are a couple of good sites I use and contribute to - one is a spine site, the other is a pain site. They are: American Pain Foundation. Spine Universe. Another good item if you don't have one is a Thermopore pad - if you've ever been to a Chiropractor some of them use 'em a lot. They only cost about 75 bucks, give you moist heat in about a minute, and is a godsend for back pain of any type. (MORE)
Birth control is a type of contraception (means for preventing pregnancy). Other types include condoms, spermicide, IUDs, etc.
The biggest difference is that Yaz contains 24 active pills and 4 inactive pills, which have no active ingredients and Yasmin has 21 active pills and 7 inactive pills. The smaller number of inactive pills reduces some of the symptoms that occur just before and during the period.

As with all steroid type drugs, there is an increase in thirst and therefore an increase in the need to urinate.

you could so there is a very unlikely chance of getting pregnant.. my mother was on birth control and my father used a condom but here i am 21 years later
YES! birth control and prednisone does not stop std's and not always pregnancy. if you are in a long term relationship and you both obviously know you have no ifections then it isn't uncommon to have sex without a condom. In this case still use a condom when first going onto birth control as it can …mess up your monthly period and/or ovulation so a tiny slip up (if that's what you want to call it) may result in the patter of tiny feet... and you will be left saying "what happened? i was on the pill". This is also different for each individual so whereas the doctor may say it will take 2 weeks to settle when on the pill in reality it can be anything up to 6 months. (MORE)
try taking your birth control with a small snack. if that doesn't work then talk to your doctor and see if you can try another pill that wont make you sick.

It's easy. If you go off birth control, you could experience morning sickness, breast soreness, food cravings, and even pain in your stomach.
No, there is no drug interaction between prednisone and "birth control pill"... but the absorption might be reduced by your medical condition... I don't know the reason why you need prednisone.
Generally birth control pills take a month to go into affect, so you should wait at least a month after switching pills.

First, Ortho-Novum is a brand, not a specific birth control pill. Yaz has a different progestin in it than the Ortho Novum pills on the market as of 2013.
If your pills are all the same dose of hormones for each day, then nothing. If you have a type of pill where different weeks have different doses of hormones, then you will need to use another form of birth control (while continuing to take your birth control pills in the right order) for this mo…nth, as there is a chance that you may ovulate that month. You do not want to take your placebo pills (the pills you take for 1 week when you are supposed to have your period) during the middle of your birth control pill cycle, as those pills offer no birth control protection. If that was the case, then you may get a surprise period in the middle of your cycle, and you will need to use another form of birth control in order to prevent pregnancy. (MORE)
absolutely do not miss a lot of birth control pills. If you consistently miss pills, you will get an irregular period (you could get a period like 3 times a month) and there is a very good chance you will get pregnant.
I don't know whether you're a man or a woman, but there are many forms of birth control. Condoms you can buy in a supermarket or at the drugstore. Be carefull to use only recognized and safe brands (the popular ones such as for example Trojan). Condoms in funny shapes or things like that can be unsa…fe, so use a good brand. If you're a woman, there are several options such as the birth control pill, the ring, injections... It's important that you go see a doctor first. These pills contain a certain amount of hormones, and not everyone can 'handle' the big doses. The doctor can prescribe you a lighter form or a heavier one, depending on your body and on your reactions to the pill. If you experience some side effects from using a certain type of pill, you should switch to another one until you've found the one that's right for you. It is important to go see a doctor first though. He can give you the best advice. (MORE)

There is no direct link between taking birth control pills and getting yeast infections, but some studies do suggest that women who take the pill are at a slightly greater risk.
