    Missed birth control but didn’t realise until 2 days after

    I am currently on the combined oral contraceptive pill Microlite. I missed a pill on Saturday as I was in work at the time I usually take them. When I got home I forgot to take the pill. I took Saturdays’s pill on Sunday not realising what day it was. Today is Monday and I realised I had an extra pill in the pack which said Sunday. I assumed I missed Sunday as i took the Saturday pill on Sunday. I took two pills today but I realise now that I in fact missed Saturday not Sunday. I had unprotected....

    Depo

    Hello everyone, just a quick question please. I picked up my depo shot from the pharmacy. Whereas I usually get it when I pick it up. They took to long giving it to me so I left. Since then my shot has been sitting in my heated (85/100°) car. That's been about a week now. Is this liquid any good to administer? I've been trying to google the answer. Finally gave up & came here. Thanx in advance.

    Switching from Depo to the patch

    Hi I was on the depo shot for 3 years and just recently switched to the patch. So I haven’t had a period in about 3 years. It is my first week with the patch off and a couple days have gone by and I haven’t got my period. Is it normal for my period to take awhile to come since I switched BC? And about how long will it take for my period to start to begin again? Thank you!

    Prescription question

    What reason would a Doctor have to prescribe a Narcotic, currently Oxycodone, a Benzodiazepine-currently Clonazepam, and Muscle Relaxant, currently-Cyclobenzaprine at the same time, and an antidepressent-Cytalopram? My Girlfriend has been prescribed these for the 10 years I've known her.. this seems excessive to me....?

    Brown discharge?

    Sorry if this is TMI but I have had a bit of brown discharge, when googling it said it could be ‘old blood’. However it’s been 10 days since I finished my period, could that still be ‘old blood’? It’s only ever happened once, hasn’t happened since and I am on the implant as a contraceptive. Is this anything to be concerned about?

    Endometriosis or health anxiety?

    I have been getting on and off pelvic pain for about a year and a half, I have obviously been to the doctors for this. They have given me every test you can imagine, bloods, ultrasounds, pelvic exam, STI checks, All of which have come back clear and healthy. I also suffer extremely badly with health anxiety, it is something I’ve been to the doctors with ever since my grandad passed away. As a result of this anxiety I have a habit of googling my symptoms, and when I googled my hip pain endometriosis....

    period problems

    I've had the birth control implant (nexplanon) in my arm for almost two years now. It was fine at first but it seems like I've been bleeding nonstop for 8 months now, I stopped for maybe two weeks in December and then it continued. I don't have medical/insurance and I don't know what to do. I've tried bc pills and the depo shot and the implant is the only one I've liked, but could it be causing this? I should also mention that my cramps have gotten worse as well. I'm tired....

    Delaying period with bcps

    Hi Everyone, I am in the 5th week of taking bcps to delay my period for my vacation, but the pelvic cramping is becoming a bit unbearable. Is it okay for me to stop at the end of week 5 tomorrow? Is it necessary to complete week 6? I take microgynon which is a low dose 21-day/3 week pack of monophasic pills. Your feedback is appreciated, Thanks
