Yes Birth Control is only the 98% it claims to be only if used as directed, my sister got pregnant twice because she forgot to take her pill once in her cycle and then started it normal the next day like nothing and found out she was pregnant 3 weeks later.

Start the pack at your earliest convenience, and use a back up birth control method like condoms or abstinence from vaginal sex for the first seven days.

What are the chances of getting pregnant if it was on the day your period ended and he pulls out before ejaculation?

The pull out method is the worse form of birth control there is. Unless you are ready to have a kid I would find a real form of birth control. Only ingnorant people and people who don't really care use the pull out method.Answeryes you could. just because he pulled out doesnt mean that he didnt pre-ejaculate when having sex with you. and he probably didnt even feel it. so the whole pulling out method right after your period( which is when you are most fertile) isn't really a good idea. or at anytime it isn't a good idea.

I started birth control because i hadn't had my period over two months but i didnt wait to get my period When will birth control start protecting me?

Did you take a pregnancy test? If in the unlikely scenario that you AREN'T pregnant, it will take a few months for the pills to re-schedule your hormones. That is why you are supposed to begin taking it immediately after a period. Because it works on your body's schedule. It may be somewhat effective after a few weeks, but not fully for a few months. Birth does not work as an abortion method, so if that's what you were going for, you are still pregnant.

Could you get pregnant if started using the patch the day of your first period but didnt put the patch on the second or third week can you get pregnant easily?

Yes, anytime you do not use birth control correctly you risk getting pregnant. Best solution if you miss your periord get a pregnancy test. If you are not pregnant use your birth control as directed to reduce the chance of pregnancy in the future. Keep in mind the only form of birth control that is 100% effective is not have sex you can get pregnant using birth control even if you use it correctly.

You were on depo shot for 3 months you didnt go back to get the shot in march but you did spot in march and blead for 2 weeks straight in April now its may and no period yet what should you do?

As noted in the patient information leaflet, your period may not return for up to 18 months (average 11 months) after stopping Depo Provera. If you don't want to be pregnant now, start a new birth control method.

My daughter got her first period and it was fine but she has skipped her next four any idea why this might happen?

I had the same problem, I got my period then it didnt come back for 6 months. after that now it wont go away. It has to do with the hormone ballance. If your really concerned try talking to your doctor, They will most likely talk to you about birth control for an answer. But remember just because you are on birth control doesnt give you a free for all.

Could you be pregnant if you are 3 weeks late and took a test at a lil before 2 weeks and it was negative but you didnt take the pill last month your always on and off but your period isn't ever off?

How do you get rid of severe acne on a 11 yr old girl?

Believe it or not, birth control is the best way for a girl. It clears up almost immediately. I used to feel the same way, I didnt know how to get rid of it and it was so imbarassing. My doctor recommended birth control for me when I was about her age and it was great. I know alot of parents don't like putting their children on birth control but sometimes, it's worth it.
