• Cramping on active birth control pills?

    I’m taking Sprintec and this is my first combination pill. I stared it in November. I’m now on the second week of my second pack and I’ve noticed some cramping.

I’ve noticed body cramps as well but I have horrible posture and sleep weird so that could also be it. Does anyone have cramping on active pills?

  • Birth control pills making me sick when I start a new pack?

    I’ve been on birth control since August. I was on a progestin only pill and it didn’t make me nauseated. However, it made me crazy and my period was irregular. I switched to the combination pill Sprintec and it made me very nauseous the first week on the first month. This is now the start of my second pack and I woke up feeling so nauseous.

I switched to the combination pill Sprintec and it made me very nauseous the first week on the first month. This is now the start of my second pack and I woke up feeling so nauseous. I try to work out and I can’t finish because I feel so sick. I haven’t really eaten because of the fact that I feel so sick. Is this normal? I didn’t feel this bad last month. At least last most was somewhat manageable. This month Is just weird. Does anyone have any tips or suggestions?

  • How far into the Placebo pills do you normally get your period?

    I am on day 3 of my placebo pills. I normally take my pills at 5:00 so at 5 it will officially be 3 days on the placebo pills. I have no sign of Aunt Flo and I have taken a pregnancy test and it says negative though I haven't had sex in a month or so.

    Hi guys. So I am a little concerned. I was on the Progestin only pill from August until early late August because it just wasn t sitting well with my body. I took them religiously every day. I had intercourse once while on that pill which was in late September and I had my period the day intercourse. In October I stopped taking the pill around the time my period was due though it was a little late, I did have a withdrawal bleed for about 3 days and I had a bit of some heavy cramping. I started the combination pill Sprintec a day after the bleeding ended. I had breakthrough bleeding the next day after I started the pill. Now I am on day 3 of the placebo pills (which I have not taken) and there is no sign of Aunt Flo coming in. Should I be concerned? I haven t had sex since late September and I have taken tests that turned out negative just to ease my mind. Should I be worried?

  • Is it normal for my birth control to allow me to not come on my Period?

    I have been on the lazy mini pill for 2 months. The first month I came on my period. However, this month I haven't. I'm a little late and have no signs of starting either. I have taken about 3 pregnancy tests and all came back negative. It's a little frustrating and stressing me out even more since I am suffering from depression. Has... show more

Has anyone had this problem on Lyza or the Mini pill?

  • Out of curiosity, How effective are the mini-birth control pills?

    I've been on the pill for about 2 months. TBH I'm not really active so I guess I'm not really bothered. However, I do notice the same discharge when I ovulate so I know I'm still ovulating. This doesn't shock me considering the fact that Mini pills aren't known for stopping ovulation. Has anyone had success stories while on... show more

This doesn't shock me considering the fact that Mini pills aren't known for stopping ovulation. Has anyone had success stories while on the mini pill. I've done research, though I would like to know about experiences.
