You should act like you have never takenbefore as far as protection goes. Start taking birth control just like you did for the first time you started taking birth control (if you have forgotten, read the instruction pamphlet with your pills) and use a back up contraceptive (condom) for the first 30 days before having sex without a condom.
It's very unlikely that you'd have a normal period the first month off birth control (I'm assuming by 'birth control' what you actually mean is the combination pill - please don't use these terms interchangeably, there are many forms of birth control!). Your first 'period' will be your withdrawal bleed as normal, but after that it may take a few months to get a real period again. It can also take up to 12 months for your cycles to regulate again once you stop using hormonal birth control.
It matters what birth control....Depo you can miss a period. And the pill stays in your system for 2 to 3 months after you stop taking it. Some girls miss a period as a growing month.
Yes, if you don't take birth control pills daily, you can get pregnant. This is true even if you were on for nine months before stopping.
Menstruation and you are fertile again, everything back to normal.
Higher than if you had been taken the birth control regularly for a few months. Most doctors recommend a second form of birth control in addition to the pill in the first month.
You can have unprotected sex any time since you've been on birth control for over a month. However I would still recommend using condoms.
It shouldn't, maybe the first couple months but many women use it to regulate their cycle.
Check out the fertility awareness site and if that doesn't help see a doctor.
Yes you can get pregnant if you have vaginal sex and have not taken birth control for 1 month.
Yes, but it is not recommended. If you do decide to skip your birth control for a month be sure to use a back-up method such as condoms, to prevent pregnancy because all the hormones from the birth control will be depleted from your system. Skipping your birth control may also cause unwanted side effects as well, such as: late or irregular periods, or spotting or breakthrough bleeding. When you do begin taking you birth control again, be sure to wait at least 2 months before you have unprotected sex to prevent pregnancy. It is not good to skip your birth control or take frequent breaks either. If you do find that the pill is not for you, you should consult your doctor to find a method that is better for you.
On average, it takes six months to get pregnant, whether or not a woman has been on the birth control pill. Some couples will get pregnant the first month after stopping the pill, and others will take a year, but six months is the average.
In the first three months of using hormonal birth control, a woman may have irregular bleeding. This side effect improves with time.
Basically the birth control pill takes anywhere from a month to three or four months, depending on how your body accepts the pill. Im sure about this if your on orthotricyclen lo. Not really sure about other birth control methods.
It doesn't. If you are trying to become pregnant, it may take a few months for ovulation to begin happening at a regular interval again. However, if you are having unprotected sex and do not want a pregnancy, you need another form of birth control.
Buy a pregnancy test at the pharmacy, they are fairly accurate, so if you have missed 2 periods in 2 months you may be pregnant, it will be better to check with a doctor to put your mind at ease. AND, always use birth control or a condom and you won't have to worry about this again.
Any month five months after they were joined.
About 90% of women can get pregnant after a month without birth control.
all women are different. I was on it two years with not one period. I tried for six months after stopping the depo and finally went to the Dr. the had me do 3 months of birth control to regulate myself. I did get pregnant the first month off of birth control though. did you have a period during your depo?
Birth control can cause this to happen don't worry
Assuming that you are having unprotected sex you are at a higher risk to get pregnant anytime that you are not taking birth control. Also birth control is only really effective when it has been taken consistently for 3 months every day at or close to the same time of day.
I HOPE YOU ARE NOT ON THE SHOT! I BLED FOR 6 MONTHS ON THE SHOT, AND A FRIEND OF MINE DID THE SAME THINGBUTTHE HORMONE IN THE BIRTH CONTROL COULD EITHER BE TO HIGH OR NOT HIGH ENOUGH
No, the point of birth control is so that your body will not ovulate so that you will not get pregnant. Your period is withdrawal bleeding, which is not the same as regular periods.
Yes, it can be. It takes your body a few weeks to "kick in" again. You have been taking hormones to control your period and now your body has to take over again.
Once you stop taking birth control, within 7 days of stopping it you will begin to ovulate and put yourself at risk of pregnancy. Before you re-start birth control, perform a pregnancy test. If the test is negative, you can re-start birth control. If the test is positive, see your Doctor for confirmation. When you re-start birth control, you cannot have unprotected sex until you've been on birth control for one whole month. So until this time you need to use a condom for 4 weeks.
It can take anywhere from 1 month to 18 months....so my doctor says :/
