I started taking birth control three weeks ago, first day of my period like I was told but I've had my period for the whole three weeks I've been on the pill. I'm incredibly frustrated and I don't want my period anymore - can I just stop taking the pills and when I get my period next month, can I start taking them again?
I started birth control for the first time on the first day of my period this month, but my period has lasted 12 days. If I continue my period, or have spotting, is it alright to skip my placebo pills and move onto a fresh pack until my cycle becomes regular?2 AnswersWomen's Health1 decade ago
I started birth control on the first day of my period, it's been ten days, I've been taking the pills at the same time daily like instructed but I still have my period and it's a relatively heavy flow - not just spotting. I don't have the patience to wait until my period is over to have sex with my boyfriend.
I'm assuming the hormones are messing up my cycle and I should wait a few months for my body to get used to the pills but is it okay if I just stop taking them to get my cycle back on track before I go back to my doctor and ask for a different brand of pills seeing as these ones aren't strong enough for me!! Thanks! :)
On the first day of my period, I started for the first time of my life, on birth control pills... I've had my period for 8 days now, and it's a medium flow. How long does it take for my body to get used to the pills? When will my period stop and how long should I wait before I go see my doctor about it? Is it normal to have long periods for the first while of starting on BC?2 AnswersWomen's Health1 decade ago
Okay - I'm obsessed with serial killers.
I love everything about them. Their crimes, their psyche, why they did what they did etc.
My family doesn't know about my obsession and it's becoming a large part of my life. I'd like to be able to share stories with them but I'm afraid they'll think I need some sort of help.
I really want to buy some books on their lives and crimes, but once again I'm terrified they'll think I'm some sicko.
Any suggestions on how to break it to them gently?
Let them know this is what I'm interested in and buying media on them is something I long to do?

I'm a 16 year old female, I'm 5'3" weight 90 lbs.
I'm flatchested and I look like I'm 12. I've been menstruating for roughly 3 years but I've recently had an ovarian cyst and my period has disappeared for several months now. I don't know if thats because of the cyst or not but whatever. I'm very thin, but I'm wondering if my weight will change as I continue to grow. Am I skinny because of puberty or what?!
Will I continue growing? Will my breasts grow? Do I have a hormonal problem or am I just a late bloomer? HELP!
I'm a 16 year old female. I'm about 5'3" and weigh between 80-85 lbs (I know, I'm tiny.) No, I do not have an eating disorder.. It's just, metabolism's a biatch.
Anyway. I started menstruating about 2 years ago, and began having extremely heavy periods, for about 1 year. Sometimes they'd last for over 2 weeks. I went to the doctor, and I was told I had an ovarian cyst (which was the cause of my heavy and irregular periods) . A couple months later, the cyst popped and I thought great! I'll finally start having normal periods again. But that never happened. I only get my period every 5-6 months and I'm very worried.
Do you think my cycle is still trying to get back on track? Or do you it DOES have something to do with my weight?
I'm heading to the doctor next week so I'm hoping she'll have some good advice.3 AnswersWomen's Health1 decade ago
