Re: Things happened.

Re: Spotting depo shot

Hello there, cj. Spotting is one possible side effect that the Depo-Shot can have. Some people report not having withdrawal bleedings at all after some time of using it, but some others have light bleeding or spotting regularly. Bodies need sometime to adjust when we make changes, but if you find it...

Re: Huge fear of pregnancy even on bc

Hello, Mw2525. Is not that uncommon for people with vaginas who use birth control to have some variations on their periods. Even for people who are very regular, variations can happen from time to time. After reading your posts here, it sounds like fear of pregnancy is causing you a lot of stress an...

Re: Blood After Sex

Spotting is not that uncommon for people with vaginas, actually, but I understand it can be annoying sometimes.

Re: Generic pills

Is okay to trust your pharmacist as they have all the information needed when it comes to medications. Switching brands (as long the active ingredients are the same) is not going to change the efficiency of the pill. For what I can see those pills are the same so is safe to think that you can contin...

Re: going the distance

This is going to be absolutely about what you like/enjoy more. And it can also change from time to time, which is okay. Masturbation doesn't have to be a "duty" but something you'll do because you feel in the mood. :)

Re: Condom experience

If and when the person wearing the condom is going to withdraw (pull out), they need to hold the base of the condom to make sure the condom stays in place. :) You can have more info about proper use of condoms in this link: http://www.scarleteen.com/article/sexual_health/condom_basics_a_users_manual...

Re: Pain, swelling, burning, itching!

Yeast infections are not uncommon for people with vaginas so I am guessing it should not be that hard for health care providers to diagnose them.

Re: Testing

Hello there, gatesy.

As long as you followed the instructions of the test you took (they vary from brand to brand) you can trust its results.

And kudos to you for adding a back up method besides your pill. I hope it helps you to ease the anxiety. :)

Hello there, CJ. :) No, shorter breaks won't give you less protection (but taking a break longer than 7 days would). If you find out that you are still worried about the efficiency of your BC, you can always add another method such as condoms, which is always super helpful. :) Keep in mind that beca...

Re: Missed pill

Once you catch up with your pills (taking the last one you missed and the one on the regular schedule) it will take about at least a week to be fully protected again.

Switching brands is not going to affect your level of protection as long as you do not skip any active pills.

If you followed the instructions that came with the test you took there is no reason to think the results are not reliable.
