Birth Control pills/patches can really do a number on your hormones so it's quite common for your periods to be all over the place (especially when you first start taking them or you stop them.)

You have nausea and tenderness of the breast are you pregnant?

The only way to tell if you are pregnant is first have you had a period in the last two months. Are you on birth control, if you are on any form of birth control you are not pregnant and if you have just come off of birth control you are not pregnant. If you haven't had a period and aren't on birth control start with a home pregnancy test if it comes back negative your not pregnant. If it comes back positive then go to your OBGYN and get a blood test and if the blood test comes back negative you aren't. Nausea and breast tenderness are not tell tale signs of a pregnancy those symptoms can happen for a number of reasons.

It is easy to become pregnant if you have been on birth control for several years?

If you are using your birth control as directed, there should be a very small chance of getting pregnant.

It really depends on your form of birth control.

Can a chemist in Sydney prescribe you birth pills if you've bought some from them do they keep records of your prescription?

Birth control has many uses other than being a contraceptive. It can help control acne, cramps, and headaches due to your time of the month. If your cramps from your period are getting really bad or you have acne that comes only around the time you get your period, a doctor can prescribe birth control to help regulate those symptoms. Otherwise just go to Planned Parenthood and you can get birth control for free! Some birth control prescriptions are a lot of money but if you have insurance the generic birth control is not that much money.

Can the Birth control patch stop your period?

If you put the birth control patch on before your period comes, you may miss that period; you may also have unscheduled bleeding or spotting.

If you think you made a mistake with the patch, and missed a period, take a pregnancy test to make sure.

Can you have a late period due to missing a day of birth control?

You are going on vacations and want to change date when period comes?

You can delay your period by not taking a break between the packs of pills. To do this you must take your birth control everyday and at the same time everyday. By doing this you have 99.9% protection from pregnancy. When you get to the day that you would begin your placebo pills, you must begin your new pack of active pills at the same time you have been taking your birth control. By skipping the placebo pills and starting your new pack of active pills, this will delay your menstrual cycle from starting that month.

What does it mean when you spot on and off a week before your period then when your period is due you only spot on and off and no period comes?

Before I started taking birth control about 6 months ago I had heavy periods. Now I get it lightly for one day and spot the rest, it was scary at first because I thought I could be pregnant but some birth controls make your period lighter. If it really bothers you then you can tell your doctor about it and he/she will give you a pill that makes them come on better.

What if you bleed while taking the active birth control pills?

I assume you are taking the pill like yasmin or something to that effect. I can honestly say that when you are taking a birth control, it is normal for it to regulate your periods, but honestly, sometimes nature comes before any chemical you can treat it. So if you think this is a major side effect, talk to your dr. If not, go with the flow. No pun intended.

Could I be pregnant if i started birth control the week before I was supposed to get my period and had sex 3 weeks after I started the pill?

I suppose it's possible. Anytime you start a new birth control you should always use a "backup method" of birth control to be safe. Take a home test and if it comes back negative but you still haven't started your period, then consider making an appointment with your ob/gyn for a blood test.
