Hey I posted a couple of questions under my topic "question" in Ask Scarleteen. Well, someone posted a question under mine, and I think mine was not seen. I didn't want to say that on the topic and be rude/mean.

Maria: next time around, it's not rude to say that in your own topic.

Do you mean this question:

"Hey there... I have noticed some changes about my body. My nipples are dark, I've felt nauseous, my discharge has increased (no discoloration really), and for the first time in YEARS my waistline is changing... Like between my belly button and pubic area is rounded. I'm 100lbs so this is very noticeable. My bf noticed it as well. I had two periods and a negative test between the two periods (since my freakout about dry humping) and I started BC pills about two weeks ago. Could the above symptoms already be from the birth control? I don't know anyone really familiar with all this stuff to ask but you all.

My second question, though its kinda irrelevant now, but if you dry hump with one layer (maybe while the girl is naked) and the guy fingers her right after, is that a pregnancy risk? I've read the articles about fingering and dry humping with one layer not being risks themselves, but what about together?
Thanks "

Okay, I'll remember that, thank you. [Smile]

And yes, I did.

Okay. [Smile]

Our bodies tend to be in a constant state of flux throughout our lives, but then there are times when those changes are more noticeable or bigger. And the years in and around puberty -- let;s say, on average, between age 10 and 25 -- tend to be biggies for that.

As well, some of what you're mentioning here are common side effects with hormonal methods of BC: nausea, breast changes, bloating.

Per your risk question, the risk doesn't change when you engage in two activities that don't pose risks versus one. Both those activities still don't present pregnancy risks.

Okay, thank you about that information.

I am usually not very big on medications, so when I have side effects it makes me kinda nervousy...

Can cramping also occur?

My doctor said I could start my med. the following Sunday (I went on Friday) but it would throw my period off a week. I was supposed to start around the 18th, but now I won't. This isn't dangerous is it? I mean when I start my inactive pills, a couple of days later people usually have a period right?

HI Maria,

No, there's nothing dangerous about starting your pillls then. Really, a person can start them any time. Yes, the withdrawal bleed happens at some time during the week of taking the inactive pills.

And yes, cramping can be a sie effect of taking the pill.

You're most welcome. And apologies for missing your question in your other thread.

Oh it's fine [Smile] things like that can happen. Y'all are busy!
So what if I miss this period? Is that rare and nothing to think about when starting pills?

It is common to have some irregular bleeding in the first few months after starting the pill. As you settle into it, you will get a bleed during your inactive/sugar pills.
