While not a prevention, I have found that taking the pill at night with grapefruit juice helps.

Yes, it's safe to continue using the birth control pill even while waiting for Jadelle to become effective.

Yes,if you miss a day without taking the pill. My girlfriend got pregnant while taking the pill

A mini pill only contains Progestin while the regular birth control pills contain Estrogen and Progestin.

Yes you can definitely become pregnant while taking the pill. I am proof of that and I never missed a dose. :) If you are pregnant you must stop taking the pill.

most of the time when you take your mini break from the pill you will have your period then or maybe while you are on the pill this can not harm you. so you should not stop taking the pill even if you are half way through your packet and you start your period. if you are still unsure then you should speak to your doctor.

You should NOT be taking the pill while pregnant! STOP immediately. Next time you have an appointment with your obstetrician, let him/her know that you were taking the pill. There is absolutely no reason to continue taking the pill while you are pregnant, you cannot get pregnant again.

If you don't get your period while taking the pill, nothing happens and this is nothing to worry about. Many women find that their periods are lighter or disappear altogether when they are taking the pill.

If you are taking a birth control pill you do not ovulate.

the mini pill only contains progestin, while the other pills contain both estrogen and progestin. A popular mini pill brand is Micronor. Women with high blood pressure or predisposition to heart attacks and the like are usually prescribed the mini pill. Another major difference between POPs and Combination Pills is that the mini pill does not include a week of placebo pills; each mini pill contains the same dosage of progestin and must be taken continuously around the same time each day. If you are even three hours late taking the mini pill, your chances for pregnancy are drastically increased. In cases like that, it is recommended you use a back-up method in addition to continuing your pill regimin for at least 5 days. Taking combination pills at EXACTLY the same time each day is not as crucial.

Breakthrough bleeding is fairly common when you start using most hormonal contraceptives. If you are using a mini - progestin only pill (POP) you should call your doctor, having a period while taking mini pills can also mean you are ovulating.

what does it meam when you have a one day period that is very light while on the mini pill

If you are taking antibiotics, and you got your period while being on the pill, you want to continue to take your pill. Keep in mind that being on antibiotics can lower the affect of the birth control pill.

Break through bleeding while taking a POP mini pill may mean that you are also ovulating, you should let your doctor know about this and use a back up method of birth control until you are sure the pill is effective.

Ideally, you do not ovulate while taking the pill. If you are actually ovulating while on a birth control pill (it can happen), then yes, you could become pregnant.

The most common reasons are:PregnancyThe pill isn't for you.Taking the pill different times everyday.Missing pills and taking them all at once

The pill mimics pregnancy, so the breasts of many women swell and leak while they are taking it.

You should continue taking the pill as scheduled regardless of any bleeding.

No, you can't. Every pill is exactly the same on the minipill, and there are no placebo pills to skip.

If it is the 'mini-pill' it is fine to take whilst breastfeeding. The 'combined' pill will however affect you milk production.

Yes you will still have periods while on the pill. While on the pill your periods will come on an expected day which is usually during the placebo week. The pill will sometimes lighten your menstrual flow.

Yes You can drink while you are taking Viagra but the viagra pill will not be as functional while the alcohol level in your blood is high.
