  • Not sure what to do

    Was wondering if anyone could help ease my mind a bit with some knowledge. For the past 8 months I've been severally bloated in my abdomen. I am not pregnant. My whole abdomen is tender to touch. I've been fatigue, and feeling full all the time. I have a loss of appetite but I gained 20 pounds in two months with no change in diet or exercise.

    New Birth Control Pills

    So I'm currently on my off week for my birth control (I'm on Microgestin which has 3 weeks of active pills then I don't take pills for a week instead of having placebos), but I got a prescription for a different pill (Gianvi). I'm supposed to start my next pack of pills on Sunday, but the new pills definitely won't get here on time for that. Is it ok to start the Gianvi a week late (I haven't had sex in over a month so there isn't a possibility of me getting pregnant)....

    Missed Birth Control Effects

    Im on Sprintec 28 day. In May, I did not take the last active pill in my pack. At the beginning of June, I took the first week 6th active pill over 48 hours late and then the 7th pill over 24 hours late. I took the 2nd week first pill around the time I usually take my pill. I experienced breakthrough bleeding the following week for a few days and had unprotected sex during this time. My June pack ended last week and on Sunday I saw brown discharge and then bleeding that I felt was the start of my....

    Growing mole

    I have a mole on the back of my neck that, as far as I know, has been there most of my life. I have noticed it has recently gotten larger over the past year or so, so I've become a bit concerned about it. It's hard for me to see it as it's on the back of my neck. Does this mole look as though it could be cancerous?

    Switching to a different generic birth control?

    Hello! I have been on a prescription for Levora (which I know is a generic) for the past couple of months, but my insurance provider switched it to a different (but same?) generic version called Marlissa. It has the same amount of dosage, but I was wondering that if when I finish my current pill pack of Levora today and begin Marlissa tomorrow if I need to use a backup form of birth control? The switch I made to Levora was an increase in dosage from my last BC, so my doctor informed me that I didn't....

    Vagina pain

    Hello- I have some concerns regarding my vagina and any answers would be appreciated. I recently began having frequent sex with one partner. We use condoms when we have sex and we last had sex over a week ago. When we are together there is a lot of oral foreplay. So after sex, I noticed my vagina was tender but I didn't think anything of it until it didn't go away. I then realized it wasn't the inside of my vagina but that the discomfort was coming from my clit. Just last night, noticing....
