The increase in estrogen when going from Alesse to Ortho Tricyclen could cause breast tenderness, which should disappear within the first three cycles. If it lasts longer than that, is accompanied by other symptoms, or if it's driving you nuts, contact your health care provider for advice anda possible change in pills.

What birth control pills make you fat?

It's different for everyone! I've been on Alesse, Yasmin and Marvelon On both Alesse and Yasmin I didn't have any weight gain, but I gained about 7 pounds on Marvelon. One of my friends was on Alesse and gained 10 pounds in a few months. Yasmin gave me chronic yeast infections. I've heard mainly positive things about Tri-Cyclin from friends, but it could just be a coincidence based on the women i know! Low-risk pills for weight gain are most of the new generation ones, including the ones I mentioned above. You won't know for sure how it will effect your body until you take it!

Can taking Alesse and antibiotics while pregnant cause birth defects?

It really depends on the antibiotic and the class drug it is. Drugs are rated different classes based on their risk to a pregnancy. For example, Amoxicillin is considered a class B drug. Class B drugs are considered relatively safe. Tetracycline on the other hand is considered a Class D drug, meaning there is sufficient data to determine the drug is harmful during pregnancy.For more information on drug classes, you can start at the related link. To find out what class of drug your antibiotic is, go to any drug database and look up the drug information. It should list the pregnancy category in the information.I would discuss the use of Alesse and the antibiotics with your doctor or midwife if you are pregnant.

What are your options if your scalp hair has fallen out since you started using ortho lo birth control in the last two months?

Birth control pills can cause hair loss. Generally, it takes about 3 months for your body to adjust to the new influx of hormones. Often, your estrogen/progestin levels will even out, hair loss will stop, and all will be fine. However, there are birth control pills that are "notorious" causing hair loss (Alesse, ortho tri-cylen lo, estrostep...) because they either have low estrogenic activity or high androgenic activity- in that case, if your hair is continually affected, it would be certainly advisable to talk to your Ob-Gyn about different BC options.

How do you suppress your menstrual cycle?

One way is to use birth control pills and skip the sugar pills. Firstly you would want to look for a pill pack that contains the same amount of progestin and estrogen in every hormone pill, such as Alesse. Most birth control pill packages contain 21 hormone pills followed by 7 placebos. To suppress your period you would take the first 21 pills from your first pill pack then move immediately on to your second pill pack, tossing out the leftover sugar pills. Keep in mind that suppressing your period might contribute to spotting throughout the month for some women. Checking out might be a good place to look for more information.

Why is the birth pill cure acne?

Birth control pills don't cure acne, they merely change the levels of hormones in your body which in turn can impact acne breakouts. Sometimes they can actually exacerbate acne. Aim for birth control pills with high levels of androgen. E.g.: Loestrin, Estrotrep Fe, Levlen, Alesse, Ovral, Norestrin, Nuvo Ring, and Depoprovera shot. The following pills are higher in estrogen and may help your breakouts, (again, it won't CURE acne): Diane 35 (Dianette), Yasmin, Demulan (Zovia), Ortho tri cyclen, Nevicon Modicon, Ortho Evra, Mircette and Desogen, (April). The above lists are only a guideline to use when going to your doctor for birth control pills.
