Is Desogen a Progestin only oral contraceptive?
BTW....I checked my pack and it says desogestrel and ethinyl estradiol...I need English... Asked by Bryon Wolman 3 months ago.

I've been prescribed Solia (Generic for Desogen) and I was doing some reading and noticed that Progestin only pills just make it difficult for pregnancy to occur and have a .5% fail rate, whereas the combination pills of estrogen and progestin prevent ovulation and make it difficult for pregnancy to occur and have a .1% fail rate. I can't a clear cut answer as to whether Desogen is a progestin only or a combination pill. Answered by Shirely Meir 3 months ago.

Desogestrel = Progestin (it contains 0.15 mg) ethinyl estradiol = Estrogen (conatins 30 Ug) Currently on my 7th pack of desogen and Loving it Answered by Wenona Reiniger 3 months ago.

Read the label on your BCP box. You should be able to fine the contents. EDIT: Oh okay, well then that means its a combination pill. :) Answered by Velia Mcenany 3 months ago.


How many mg desogestrel contains a tri-regol pill?
Asked by Shaina Souther 3 months ago.

None. There is no desogestrel in tri-regol. Tri-regol contains a different type of artificial progesterone, called levonorgestrel. This is what tri-regol has in it: There are three different doses: Light Brown Tablet: 0.05 mg Levonorgestrel; 0.03 mg Ethinyl Estradiol White Tablet: 75 mg Levonorgestrel; 40 mg Ethinyl Estradiol Ochre Tablet: 125 mg Levonorgestrel; 0.03 mg Ethinyl Estradiol Answered by Milford Delpino 3 months ago.


Can I get my birth control prescrition at walmart for only $4 a month or $10 for 3 months?
I'm looking over the list of prescriptions they sell for only $4 and i saw ( estradiol) which is in my birth control, but mine is (desogestrel and ethinyl estradiol) so i wonder if i could take the one on the list and it will still be the same as my original? Asked by Beverlee Chavarria 3 months ago.

No it won't be the same. The one you are taking is a combination hormone pill- desogestrel and ethinyl the one you are considering is a minipill with only 1 hormone- estradiol. It's not the same as a full pill has a higher failure rate. A combo pill has a 1% failure rate and a minipill has a 5% failure rate. It doesn't stop ovulation like a combo pill but instead makes it so that an egg can't implant in your uterus. Answered by Carolynn Stepan 3 months ago.

I have been going to the "free clinic" since i became sexually active 3 years ago. They put me on ortho Novum, which was fine. Then, it got discontinued, and i am now on my 2nd week of Solia. It is hard to pinpoint potential changes in my daily life, but i seem to have lost appetite (which is great) but also in energy and perhaps even sex drive. I have also felt a little depressed. I am not too worried because i am under A LOT of stress this semester and know that some, if not all of these symptoms could be due to the stress. Have any of you noticed changes when taking Solia? Thank you! Answered by Lachelle Marier 3 months ago.

Birth Control and Breast Size Increase?
Ya they hurt ALLLL THE TIME grrr like right now they do and I'm just laying down on the computer. Do you think that means they'll grow even more? Asked by Martin Eblin 3 months ago.

Answered by Belva Cerdan 3 months ago.

Hi, I wanted to tell you about my experience with the CurvyBust cream. I'm 24 years old and I've spent pretty much my whole life wishing I had slightly larger breasts. I'm normally a size A, I'd love to be a size B, especially when I wear certain kinds of low cut tops. I have a good figure, and I like what I have, but every now and then I would like a little bit more. Even if I had the money, (which I don't because I am a college student with loans to pay off), I would never consider going under the knife just to go up 1 cup size. So that's been my dilemma. I found out about curvybust cream when I was flipping through (Yahoo Answers). To be honest with you, I'm not the type of girl who would consider spending money on a cream that promises to increase breast size. It just seems like an impossible thing to claim. But there were three reasons that I decided to go for it: 1) I contacted them via their website because I had a question about the cream being OK for sensitive skin (which it is, because it is made of natural botanical ingredients.) 2) I was really impressed by their customer service and willingness to explain everything to me. 3) They offered me a free 12 day supply with no obligation, (I just had to pay the shipping costs- I wasn't too thrilled with that but it was still worth it to get the free product). Well, it's actually working! There is a noticeable difference in the size of my breasts! It's only been 10 days, and they say that the true final results won't appear until about the 4-6 month time frame, but based on what I can see, (and what my boyfriend can feel�) there's definitely a difference. My breasts are standing out more, and they are fuller and rounder. Sometimes I am able to go out without a bra, now I can't. And I have a feeling that I might have to actually buy new bras if the growth continues. I'm looking forward to seeing how the next month goes. There might actually be a size B in my future! Woohoo!

My boobs increased an entire cup size when i was on birth control! Some women just react strongly to the hormones in birth control, and like me, you happen to be one of them! Answered by Maia Hassig 3 months ago.

Asked by Towanda Moad 3 months ago.

I've been on an Ortho-Cyclen generic called Sprintec and it worked just fine. But out of nowhere my doctor changed me to Kariva, a stronger birthcontrol pill with different hormones. I called and asked them why they changed it and they said it's the same thing, though it's NOT. Since I started taking it a few days ago I've started to break out a little. I'm not one to have pimples. I get one like every 7-8 months if that. Now there's a bunch. Not really bad, just a few on my chin and my forehead. But still, I can't think of anything else that would cause this. Should I ask to be put back on my other one? Or do you guys think it's from something else? Answered by Marjorie Lavear 3 months ago.

Kariva Acne Answered by Thu Leyra 3 months ago.

NATURAL ACNE PROTOCOL 1/ Never, ever touch your face. 2/ Use 3 facecloths to wash your face, one to soap on, one to soap off with very hot water, one to rinse off with ice cold water, in that order, once a day. 3/ If you are under 18 take 5,000 IU of vitamin A once a day with a full meal 4/ If you are over 18 take 5,000 IU of vitamin A twice a day with a full meal. Do not get pregnant while taking vitamin A. Do not take any more, like Accutane, it will stop you growing. 5/ Never, ever. pick, squeeze or pop your spot. Read number 1 again. 6/ Do this for 90 days. 7/ Invest in a brand new pillow and 2 new or more pillow cases to �double bag' your pillow. HOT wash every couple of days. Source: A bit of advice given to me as a teenager, a bit of science as I am studying allergic reactions and vitamin A is a part of that. A bit of research: I sat in a lecture at the back and watched the acne prone pick at their faces, those with the worse acne touched their faces 32 times in an hour, the clearest complexions didn't touch their faces even once. I have circumstantial evidence that acne is the result of dermatophyte transfer from hands to face...where it does not get washed off and is well fed by hormones, sweat a nd oil...just a hypothesis... But it would explain why vitamin A is so effective as vitamin causes skin to remove dermatophytes.
