Question about BCP Regulating Cycle
Hey! I tend to miss 5-7 periods in a row before getting one. I had an exam a few weeks ago, and everything was normal. I told the dr about the missed periods and she put me on birth control pills to regulate. I was so nervous that I forgot to ask any questions!
After some research online, some of those have been answered.
I am having "cramp" like pains though. I've only been on the pills for 2.5 weeks, so could it be just my body getting used to the pills? How long should I wait until I should worry?

you really should write your questions & ask your doctor...but...here's my 2 cents... if i didnt get a period for 5-7 months i'd be sooooo happy, so personally i cannot understand why you would want to "regulate" unless you were trying to get pregnant. anyhow, i'm only on my 2nd pack of pills & i didnt get my period on the placebos like i should have, instead i got it 9 days into my 2nd pack. ugh!
anytime we pump these hormones into our bodies there are side effects so i'm sure you are just fine, but seriously list your questions & ask your doc.
good luck!!#2; Tue, 18 Dec 2007 21:13:00 GMT
- Perhaps it's just ovulation cramps...some people get them. Since your period wasn't regular, your ovulation probably wasn't either. I wouldn't worry at this point.#3; Tue, 18 Dec 2007 21:14:00 GMT
- OK, thanks. I will wait and see if these "side effects" persist, then bring it up when I get my refill, if I can. I've only just begun going to planned parenthood, and am unsure if I can just ask the nurse a question without an appointment (does it show that I don't usually go to doctors?lol)
" if i didnt get a period for 5-7 months i'd be sooooo happy, so personally i cannot understand why you would want to "regulate" unless you were trying to get pregnant."
well, personally, I got upset, and am still very upset because it means I do not ovulate normally, therefore it will be very difficult getting pregnant in the future. I always wanted to have lots of kids, but now it is looking as if I will be lucky to have 1.#4; Tue, 18 Dec 2007 21:15:00 GMT

This will also be my concern because it is not normal not to have regular periods. I was also going through the same thing. I am 27 started having periods when I was 15, I used to have it after 4-6 months. I was put on birth controls twice when I was 16 and 19 respectively. I started having regular periods at 19 but I found out when I started ttc in the year 2004 at 24 years that I was not ovulating regularly. This might be what is happening to you or not.
My best friend also used to have irregular periods I advised her to see dr when we were 19. Birth controls didnt regulate her period. She married two years ago still having irregular periods. She was later diagonised with a lump in the uterus. Went throu operation Septembmer 2006. Was on birth controls since then and period started coming regularly with heavy cramps, she found out she is pregnant last week of June this year.
You need to ask dr all your concerns you might be having some problems that needs to be rectfied before its late. :blob_fire good luck girlie.:blob_fire#5; Tue, 18 Dec 2007 21:16:00 GMT
