Yes, you must still menstruate monthly if you want your hormones to work properly.

Nope!!!! If you mean having sex while she is not on birth control pills. she WILL get pregnet. If she is having her period and she is not on pills and you have sex with her, she is gonna get pregnet.

Assuming you are talking about birth control pills, the answer is no.

Vomiting your birth control pill is not effective. Please get help -- using ipecac is dangerous.

Birth control prevents pregnancy; it doesn't end an established pregnancy.

Yes, but not for 7 days. Use another form of contraception until then.

I stopped taking my birth control in December and in January I came on my period but in february I didnt come is this normal

If you've just started taking birth control pills now then it will still work. However you need to be on BC for 4 weeks before you can have unprotected intercourse.

If you use it correctly for at least one week, the birth control patch is effective even if you're bleeding. You still have protection during the patch-free week if you used the patch correctly in the previous weeks.

They can actually work for that but you need to speak to your doctor about that.

The active ingredient in Birth Control Pills, e.g. hormones, are not affect by foods or beverages.

I wouldn't. If it is expired it will not work correctly and could be very bad on your stomach.

Normally the birth control pill takes ten days to be reliable. But that is when you take it as directed, {depends on the pill but} generally the first Sunday after your period begins.

No, but if you are taking antibiotics for the infection they can cause your birth control not to work.

No, Tylenol will not stop your period. It may help to decrease discomfort that comes with your period, though. The only drugs designed to stop your period are marketed as birth control pills.

Well when you get your birth control the doctor should have told you to use condoms at least for the first month but I dont think that it would start to work that day!

No, steroids will not effect how birth control work.

generally not. birth control takes about a month to work. certain kinds are made to stop your period but others contain a week of blank pills (pills without a hormone) to allow your period to happen once a month, even while your birth control is in effect. for some people, like me, it stops your period anyway though. sometimes you have to switch different brands to see which one is right for you.

No, that is a weekly birth control and will not work as an EC.

If you've been taking the pill about a week & a half, you should be all right because the hormones are already in your body.

I don't think that birth control stops bloating. At least it doesn't work for me. I still blow up like a balloon a few days before my cycle and I have taken birth control pills for about 15 years.

When she decides to become sexually active or if she has a really difficult time during her menstruation since birth control pills can make it easier. They can also work if you have a very irregular period.
