If you forget a pill or take it late, you increase your risk of getting pregnant. We are a welcoming subreddit and support the rights of all genders. I started Cerazette recently because I've had poor reactions to the combined pill. Team Green turned Team Pink with #1, Team Green turned Team Blue with #2,
But then again I also got pregnant with a condom that didn't break.I'd recommend not using it as your only BC, keep track of your cycles and use condoms on your fertile days.I've used this pill with consistency for about two years now as our only contraception. Start by selecting which of these best describes you!Little things like uploading a profile picture make the community a better place. What if I’m taking the mini pill and I want to become pregnant? So now I basically see blood for 4-7 days instead of 3-4, though everything is generally much lighter than before.New comments cannot be posted and votes cannot be castWelcome to TwoXChromosomes, a subreddit for both serious and silly content, and intended for women's perspectives. Thanks :)Sorry, just out of interest, were you told it has to be taken more precisely than other pills?
Have switched to cerelle, which is another minipill and haven't had the hair loss which has been nice! But I always tried to take it between 9-11 pm every night. Tetracyclines are considered safe for use during the first 18 weeks of pregnancy (16 weeks postconception); use should be avoided during the second and third trimesters of pregnancy. Not completely accurate for a different pill like cerazette, but the adjustment period was pretty bad.I've also had two periods in the same month before. No mood swings or other funny business. I am only taking it for a month or two until I am done BFing. I had just stopped BFing, hadn't had a period, was on the mini pill and still got pregnant. you can take a pregnancy test but i’m pretty sure you’re safe from pregnancy. i hope this eased your anxiety a bit:) the pill prevents you from ovulating and without the release of your eggs you can’t get pregnant. I take a few other things at the same time and have for 10+ years so I didnt have much trouble with that part. Get weekly updates on baby and your body. It is therefore particularly important that you take your mini pill on time.
Which sounds like it given the condom thing. However, I did get pregnant while on it, which ended in a miscarriage at 6 weeks. I take a few other things at the same time and have for 10+ years so I didnt have much trouble with that part. I am back on Mirena ( which I had before TTC with DD) I was not about to try the mini pill again. i wasnt on the mini pill but was still EBF. i think for most pills or all you should be protected after the first week of pills. I think i was just so used to having such normal and regular withdrawal bleeding when i was on the combo pill and now just having no regular, proper period at all is scaryI'm taking Cerelle (basicly the same thing) for about 6 months now and I got my first bleeding after ~40 days, my second ~60 days after that, and my third ~100 days after that one. Then, the pharmacist said to wait 10-14 days. So should i take a test or is this normal?Just like you said yourself, it's normal to see irregular bleeding on the desogestrel POP (exactly because it prevents ovulation). Add message | Report | See all. I fell pregnant whilst on the mini pill. Not sure about the mini pill but I got pregnant on the traditional pill, I took it at the same time every day (had alarm set on phone to remind me) except for the odd chance I was out and left my pack at home.
I went to the obgyn for a annual exam and found out I'm 5 weeks pregnant with twins. I was only on it for two months before my BFP. Not missed one. Sounds like an interesting example.Thanks for the advice. I never missed a pill and took it about the same time every night. In my opinion, the chances you are pregnant are infinitely small.when you get your pill it usually comes with a packet of when you’re fully protected.
