Periods / Re: Period troublesome
« on: June 20, 2018, 06:33:51 AM »
I took this pill & I bleed nearly constantly in it....I’d have a few days break from bleeding before it all started again. So I gave up with it.
They say that you have to give it at least 6 months for you body to get into some form of routine with it, but even then there are no guarantees it will stop your periods, & your GP shouldn’t of promised that it would. Though for a lot of women It will stop their periods others will continue to get their periods, some regularly like a normal period others at irregular intervals. Because everybody is different there is not one type of contraception that you can 100% guarantee will stop your period, because you don’t know how your body is going to react to them, so you can either continue on this & see if it eventually stops your periods or try something else that may work. I personally have never found anything that stops my periods completely, so just accept that we’re women & it one of the pitfalls of being so.

& the stats of people getting pregnant on it is more to probably do with women taking it incorrectly rather than the pill failing. There is a very short window of taking this pill late!

Periods / Re: Implant. Late Period. Pregnancy.

It’s quite normal for this to happen on the implant, even after having it for more than a year. Personally never had the implant, but I know many who have & they all have different reactions to it, some don’t have any periods, some just have light spotting around the time their periods would of been, some have normal bleeds & others bleed for a few weeks at a time then have nothing for weeks on end.

If you want to reassure yourself, then do a test, but it’s likely to be negative .

Depends on what country you are (England) you still have to wait till you are 25 even if say you lost your virginity at 16. Unless there are any reasons that they feel it’s necessary to do one earlier like unusual bleeding etc. They use to do them at 18, but found that because the cervix was still changing then a lot of people were having unnecessary treatment....I myself had them from 18 (before they upped the age) & my first one come back abnormal & I needed to have them every 6mths for 3yrs. But they think it was just the normal changes that occur at that age. They have now found a link that some cervical cancers are caused by the HPV virus & that’s why they started immunising girls against it (though this needs to be done before having sex, which is why young teens have it) regardless of the age limit in your country you should always go for them the nurse doing them has done it hundreds of times & really think nothing of it...5 minutes of embarrassment could save your life!

It’s a smear test, where they take cells from your cervix to look at under a microscope, they can see if there are any abnormal changes to your cervix. It depends on where you are from as to what age you get them done, where I am it’s from 25 & is done every 3 years (every 5 from 50 I think) basics they pop a speculum in, open it out to get a clear view of the cervix wipe it with a brush type instrument & that’s it job done in about 5minutes....the thought of it is a lot worse than the procedure!

Then you are fine....kissing is not going to result in pregnancy & nor would sitting on him with underwear on...he’d have to of ejaculated, it would if had to penetrate through two layers of material & then be in exact right spot to go where it needs to go to get you pregnant....your fine! However you may want to think about contraception if you are going to become more sexually active

Pregnancy / Re: 5 weeks pregnant and needing advice
« on: May 05, 2018, 12:40:51 AM »
I had an unplanned pregnancy at partner wasn’t supportive & left the moment he found out. I had so many emotion of what I should do, how I would cope etc & yes abortion did pop in to my head. 16 years later I’ve got the best child you could wish’s not been easy but the good massively outweigh the bad! He leaves school this year & is expected to do well in his exams, he’s moving in to college where he’s doing what he’s always wanted to do, he’s a grounded sensible child....far far different from how I envisioned it would turn out all those years ago! So obviously if you don’t want to continue with your pregnancy then you have to do what’s right for you....but trust me when I say I have not one regret about continuing mine.

To maintain the cover for contraception I’d carry on & complete this pack before having a pill free week & put up with the spotting. The problem taking them back to back is that you can get spotting inbetween periods, it’s why they advise that though you can take them back to back, not to do it on a regular basis! When I was on the pill I only ever did it if there was a special occasion coming up that I really didn’t want a period for!(holidays etc)

I’d take it the day you get your period, & if there are no days printed on the pill pack, yes I’d start in one corner & work your way down then back up the other side, just because it’s easier to keep track!

If you are due to start your period, this is probably just the start of it. It can start like this, even if you’ve never had it before.

Periods / Re: Can missing bc pill cause acne?

Missing just one wouldn’t have an effect on acne. What type of pill are you on? Some combination pills can help acne, but the mini pill is known to make acne worse

Agree with Angela, clear blue does not represent an accurate date, a friend of mine did one it said 2-3wks & she was 28 wks (longgggg story) so that’s how out they can be  :)) I’d go by your last menstrual period which would make you around 6wks! Its best to wait till the dating scan that can give you a more accurate reading. But congratulations

You need to follow the instructions on ‘missed pills’ that will be in the pack.....normally to use extra protection for 7 days. Also if you’ve been having unprotected sex (which it will be classed as) in the days you’ve not taken your pill when you should of then there is always a risk of pregnancy!
