You should continue taking the birth control pill daily as scheduled regardless of bleeding.

It won't, BCP have hormones that are normally present in women before menopause. Once you stop taking them your body will naturally go into menopause if you no longer have the hormones present to support ovulation and menstruation.

Yes, continue taking your pills. Many woman stop menstruating while taking birth control pills. If you are questioning the possibility of pregnancy take a HPT (home pregnancy test), if it is negative you can be assured that you are not pregnant and the pill is working as it should.

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

If you get your period while on birth control, you should continue using your birth control as scheduled. Bleeding does not change the schedule for taking your pill or changing your patch or ring.

It would be best to continue taking the pill each day regardless of bleeding.

Yes. Not all antibiotics affect birth control. In fact, some even increase the effectiveness. Plus, your body needs a constant dose of hormones at all times for your birth control to continue working after you're off your antibiotics. Continue taking them, but research whether the antibiotics you're taking affect your pill.

Yes continue taking your pills as normal. If this happens again perform a pregnancy test and see your DR about changing your BC pills.

There's no definitive age for the Menopause, you are at risk of pregnancy, for as long as you're still Ovulating. Your Doctor or Gynaecologist, will be able to give you the most appropriate advice.

Many women counteract menopause by taking estrogen. Estrogen is a hormone that is in short supply when a woman is going through menopause.

No, you should continue taking the pills as scheduled. IF you missed any pills in the prior cycle, take a pregnancy test.

If it is several years after menopause, pregnancy is unlikely. However, if you are still going through menopause, taking precautions would be wise.

Yes, if you took four pills at once for emergency contraception, you should continue taking one pill per day until the pack is done. Then start the new cycle of birth control.

User Avatar

Yes you should continue your pack of pills even though you are spotting. You should never discontinue taking your birth control unless advised by your physician. If you stop taking your birth control you will lower the effectiveness of the birth control drastically and you will increase your chances of becoming pregnant. Spotting is a side effect caused by birth control. Spotting typically occurs when you are either starting birth control for the first time( spotting may last up to 3 months), spotting can occur if you do not take your birth control everyday at the same time, and it can occur if you use a certain medication, such as antibiotics.

Not sure what you are asking. but NO, you should not be taking birth control during pregnancy. However, if you are taking oral contraceptive pills or depot provera and discover you are pregnant, you should not worry. Women who were on the birth control pill or depot provera during their pregnancy do not have any problems with their pregnancy i.e. they can carry the pregnancy to term and without any fetal abnormalities from the hormones. BUT if you are on birth control and find out you are pregnant, please STOP the birth control, unless you intend to get an abortion. In which case you should resume the birth control the day of the abortion. and if you are using condoms, you should continue to use that through pregnancy for STD prevention purposes not for birth control.
