Can aygestin be used as an birth controll pill?????
Asked by Laurel Fontane 1 year ago.

No birth control method is 100%. Pills, used carefully and correctly, are better than 99% ... but pregnancy is still possible. Even if you use both pills AND condoms, pregnancy is still possible, but of course the risk is lower. If an unplanned pregnancy would be a disaster for you -- then abstinance is your only option. Otherwise, speak to your doctor about the best birth control methods for you. (The 'best' pill depends on many factors, and is something to be discussed with the doctor.)

Anyone's experience with Aygestin?
I was prescribed Aygestin for my endometreosis. My doctor told me I wouldn't have a period anymore on this drug and that it would help dry things out and fix the endo.

I was prescribed Aygestin for my endometreosis. My doctor told me I wouldn't have a period anymore on this drug and that it would help dry things out and fix the endo. Well upon further research, I'm finding out that doctors prescribe it to start a period? How does that go about working? Has anyone taken this drug, and if so what was the reason and what were the side effects? Answered by Nelia Bohlinger 1 year ago.

The difference in Aygestin stopping your period vs starting your period is all about how you take the drug. It's a progestogen hormone... basically, if you were to take it, it will work by keeping your endometrium thin. But in order for this to work, you have to take it continuously. This stops from ovulating and stops your period. If the doctors had given it to you to trigger a period, you'd only take it for 5-10 days. Once you stopped taking the med, hormone withdrawal kicks in and you start bleeding. I took it as a sprat because my period was routinely late. It worked fine and I had no serious side effects... which is not to say you won't. It's basically the birth control pill, and some women have big problems with that.

I've been taking Aygestin for 4 months is it possible that I can get pregnant?
I started having a brown sticky discharge with small clots. What I would like to know is could I be pregnant with no symptoms? I've never had breakthrough bleeding at all since I've been taking it.

Answered by Carroll Lale 1 year ago.

one question: How old are you? & Even with Aygestin you can still get pregnant, the only way not to get pregnant is to NOT HAVE SEX. So yes it is possible, even with condoms. It also is very possible to get pregnant with NO syptoms have you watched the show I Didnt Know I Was Pregnant? Although what you are discribing doesnt sound like being pregnant, but more like a bladder, or urine problem or something. All i know is that you do have a very good chance at getting prenant with Aygestin. Answered by Ashton Abril 1 year ago.

Of course it's possible to be pregnant without any symptoms. Have you ever watched the show "I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant"? All of the girls on that show never even knew they were pregnant until they randomly went into labour and gave birth! But anyways, even you've never had break-through bleeding before, it's possible to randomly get it now. Your body can do strange, unexpected things sometimes. But if you think you're pregnant, you can always take a pregnancy test to make sure! :) Answered by Scottie Fluharty 1 year ago.


Can I get pregnant while taking Aygestin?
Asked by Hilario Scolnik 1 year ago.

VERY unlikely, since in some instances it is sold as a contraceptive (but more as a treatment for endometriosis). Answered by Aline Startz 1 year ago.


Birth Control 5mg Aygestin/Norethindrone?
What I am looking for is - If you've taken it to stop periods, did you still have a bleed at all? - Has anyone taken it as a birthcontrol? - Does anyone know ANYTHING? aboout this medication. Asked by Gabriel Buquo 1 year ago.

I've been ALL over the internet looking for information. I've been to my obgyn, who doesn't seem to help much, and I've called three different pharmacies. Can anyone tell me how soon 5mg daily aygestin starts working as a birth control, and what its effectiveness rate is? Has anyone else been on this medication to stop having periods completely!? Would not having a period that first month signify I didn't ovulate due to the meds? These meds are absolutely hard to find information on, in an oral contraceptive aspect, and my doctor isn't much help Answered by Dwayne Mcvean 1 year ago.

The birth Control 5mg Aygestin/Norethindrone starts working in 2 days...and its not effective at all. It can cause side effects too, like headache... Answered by Juan Ugolini 1 year ago.

i'm a specialist-lifer, interior the sense that I evaluate abortion a disgrace, and that i'd confident pick to confirm beginning administration affordable and reachable without parental consent... however the pill and different hormone drugs could have some genuine well-being effects, so i'd pick to confirm them prescribed via an truthfully surgeon, so as that they are loose, accessible and *secure*. thankfully it truly is actual in maximum places, with the aid of non-earnings womens well-being centers and planned parenthood clinics. some professional-lifers don't understand that theory can ensue with some styles of the pill, and that that is basically implantation it is prevented. i'd think of that a strictly professional-existence man or woman does not take maximum trouble-free variations of the pill consequently, and would on no account use an IUD. many religious professional-lifers are anti-beginning administration for single human beings with the aid of fact it reduces the wages of sin, and thereby encourages sin. some non-professional-existence truthfully everyone seems to be against distribution of *any* prescription drug to their newborn without their participation or consent, and sense that youngsters will pass to their mothers and fathers in the event that they *would desire to*... i think of those mothers and fathers are a splash unrealistic in modeling the probably reaction of different mothers and fathers on their very own.
