It is possible. Antibiotics which are used to treat some forms of STD's can definitely decrease the effectiveness of birth control.

You shouldn't be taking birth control if you're not prescribed it. Birth control pills don't stop periods, they stop pregnancy.

No. Birth control is intended to prevent pregnancy only. Birth control does not stop an existing pregnancy. It is not safe to take birth control while you are pregnant.

The patch does not reduce the risk of STD infection.

Yes, the birth control implant can cause your period to stop while you're using it.

You just stop. That's it.

Birth control pills should stop your menstrual bleeding. I would suggest you stop the pills and talk to your doctor

They may stop you from becoming pregnant or control when you do.

When you stop taking birth control pills, you are able to get pregnant, so be careful.

Yes. It's called birth control because it is designed to stop pregnancies.

Yes, if you're pregnant, there is no need for birth control pills.

Your birth control stays effective until you stop using it.

Yes, if you stop birth control, you may ovulate.

Birth control is meant to prevent pregnancy. If you want to get pregnant, stop taking birth control. When you stop, you can try to conceive immediately. There is no medical need to wait.

The first episode of bleeding after you stop hormonal birth control is a withdrawal bleed; the next will probably be your period, 4-6 weeks after you stop birth control.

With the exception of condoms, birth control methods do not reduce the risk of sexually transmitted diseases.

Besides hormonal birth control the only real options to stop menstruation would either be to get pregnant or to have a hysterectomy.

Yes. You can get pregnant WHILE you are on birth control.

If you wanna get pregnant, just stop using any form of birth control.

Very few antibiotics affect birth control. If you want to get pregnant, stop using birth control.

Yes, unless there is a chance that either partner has an STD/STI (sexually transmitted disease/infection) because the pill does not protect against those

No, the opposite happens you will ovulate.

No. If taken correctly and following directions birth control is 99% effective as a means of protection. In this sense a condom will protect you from a STD rather than pregnancy since the birth control pill prevents pregnancy. ADD: you also have to wait about a month when starting birth control or changing birth control. In the first month, it is not yet effective.

You stop taking birth control when you want to get pregnant, when you are no longer fertile, when you're not at risk of pregnancy (perhaps because your partner can't get you pregnant), or when you have a medical condition that makes birth control a bad idea.
