Birth Control

I recently took my contraception out after having it in for 2 years and 2 months. In that time, I never once had a period. I’ve had my bar out for about a week now and my partner and I have discussed trying for a baby. In this week, we’ve had unprotected sex about 5 times? I’m not taking the pill and we’re not wearing protection, I was just wondering what the chances were of getting pregnant? And when should my period come after having the bar for that long without a period?

Those are good questions but there are no exact answers.  Some women resume their normal cycles as early as  7 days after the Nexplanon is removed and pregnancy can occur.  Other times the return to a normal cycle can take longer.  

If I am ovulating had intercourse and took my pill 13 hours late could I get pregnant

Yes, it is.  If you ovulated and the egg comes in contact with sperm it can result in pregnancy 

If I were to come in and get birth control, would I have to pay for the session? I was told by several friends that it was free for school students.

Corner accepts all health insurance.  If you do not have insurance or you do not want to use your insurance we have a reduced fee and payment plan as needed.  

Some insurances can be used without sending any information home to parents 

We will not turn anyone away from Corner even if you cannot pay. 

I've been on depo for 3 months now and have been experiencing break through bleeding since then. I plan to stop. How long will the break through bleeding last and exit out of my system?

It is hard to predict when the bleeding will stop.  The depo will slowly be out of your system and your cycles will return to normal.   If you are sexually active you should schedule an appointment to start another type of contraception to prevent pregnancy.  

Got my first depo shot on the 2nd of November last year and bled for good 2 weeks then my second shot was due on the 2nd of February so got the Sayana press shot on the 1st of February then I had unprotected sex the next day after the shot, am I protected against pregnancy?

According to your dates, you received your shot on time, and you are not at risk for pregnancy.  ( What does Sayana press refer to??) 

Hi I am currently taking the mini pill, I want to know what could happen if I stop using it concerning physical and emotional changes, since I'm no longer sexually active.

For most women stopping the mini pill does not produce significant changes.  However, if you noticed any changes when you started the mini pill such as acne improvement, regular periods then those things will most likely return.  You may experience some irregular bleeding as your system readjusts.

I had protected sex twice in a week. two weeks later I got my period, which was heavy and about 4-5 days. I'm expecting my period next week but I have 2 or 3 pregnancy symptoms. What's happening?

It is not clear from your description of the timing what is going on . If you do not get your period when expected it is recommended you get a pregnancy test. 

 

You can can schedule at Corner health or see you primary care provider 

Hi, I have a question about bcp. Im currently on Trinessa and I took a chipped pill on Dec 26th (the 3rd week 2nd day for me) and the chip is tiny I believe. I think it was chipped when I tried to get it out of the packaging. My last period is Dec. 4-10 and I did not have any sexual relations since Dec. 16 and will not have any until Jan 3. Should I worry about it? Should I use protection by Jan 4th? I am now on my sugar pills and I just got my period today (Jan 3rd). I think it should be okay but I’m not sure-I was worried that since I took a chipped pill (I’m sure I took at least 90% of it) that I will not be protected when I have unprotected relations even though I already got my period. I did not miss a pill at all and I probably took a little bit less of the pill on the third week (only 1 pill). So I was wondering if I need anything when I have relations or should I not worry and continue taking my bc as usual? I hope to hear you soon and thank you.

It sounds like you have had a period at the expected time.   If you continue taking a pill everyday in your new pack you will not be at risk for pregnancy due to the chipped pill last month. 

I had unprotected sex last November 16 and my period started November 5 and ended november 10. I expected my next period would be Dec 1, but missed it 1 week already. Within that week, I took 5 pregnancy tests and it was all negative. Can i get pregnant? Really need help i don't have any symptoms starting from the unprotected sex up until now.

 Any time you have unprotected sex you are at risk for pregnancy.   It is recommended that you go to your health care provider or Corner Health center for a reliable pregnancy test, (blood or urine) and further evaluation.  You can also discuss reliable types of birth control.  

There are other reasons why women miss their periods. 

I am currently taking a mini pill, called cerazette and I’ve had sex without protection with my boyfriend twice, is there’s any possibility that I can be pregnant? I mean I always take my pill, I have never missed one during a month!

With perfect use the mini pill it is very effective against pregnancy,  meaning there is little chance of getting pregnant.   (No method is 100%). 

If your next period is more than 2 weeks late and you are concerned about pregnancy please get a home pregnany test or schedule to come to Corner Health Center. 

Only condoms will protect against sexually transmitted infections.
