I have an 18 month old baby, and have beed taking bcp's since. I'm always very nervous about it, and am nervous having intercourse if I take a pill even 1/2 hour after my normal time, or if I have had a bowel movement (sorry to be so graphic) less than 2 hours after taking my pill. Am I overeacting or do I have a right to be nervous?! Please help me!
Even after a b.M.? Sorry to be so annoying about it- i'm just so nervous, because I read that if you have diarea, like with vomiting, it may be ineffective. It was just a regular b.M., but still! Please calm me down!
Yes, you are being way too cautious! If you take the pill, it's gone through your system and done it's job....Bowel movement or no bowel movement. You really shouldn't stress. And like the other person said...If you throw up soon after you take it then it's probably best to abstain from sex for the next few days but there is no way the pill wouldn't work just b/c of a fast metabolism...Or even diarrhea!! Relax and as long as your timely with your pill I wouldn't say you have a thing to worry about!
Approx. 9 yrs ago my doctor gave me such pills. I later had a tumor in my ovary the size of a soccer ball weighing 7 lbs. I had a radical hysterectomy. Before the surgery I would loose bowel control and I still have that problem. Now i'm living in a shelter because jobs have been difficult. I'm in the process of getting to the bottom of this now. Either mental or physical? I find that if someone yells at me or argues near me I instantly loose control without warning.
I have thoughts that the birth control pills caused this tumor and problem. I have tried different estrogens such as sow beans or premarin. They make the problem worse. I heard someone mention yesterday what these pills will do to a plant. They swell. What must this do to women?
This was a tumor inside my ovary. This was not a cyst. This was solid with no fluid. It was also a very fast growing tumor. Maybe this was different because of my age, I was 45 at the time. Many women will tell you simular stories from taking birth control pills... This was a very fast growing tumor. As a result I had to have a radical hysterectomy. May be a womens' health site would be more effective.
