10 Questions You Should Ask Your Doctor About Birth Control Pills

Birth control pills are great. They can help regulate your period, curb PMS symptoms like mood swings and cramps and most importantly, protect against pregnancy.

    Hi I’m on dianette. It’s normally used for skin conditions but also serves as a contraceptive. I took it on Saturday had unprotected sex that night. The next morning we had it again on Sunday after my usual time I take it. I did not take the pill that day either cause I didn’t have it with me. I haven’t doubled up and also have not taken the pill since. Is there a chance of pregnancy or am I just paranoid for no reason?

    Be wary of tri-esterall! It DOES NOT WORK. I have gotten pregnant twice on it, the first time the doctor said it was because of excessive drinking the night of conception, but I stopped drinking after I miscarried from that, and I got pregnant again on it, taking it exactly on time every day, not drinking, not taking any other medications (not even over the counters like advil, just the pill).
