I'm currently taking Enpresse-28 and have a trip coming up and decided to skip the placebo pills and started a new pack. Now I have breakthrough bleeding. How long does this last? what should I do? Should I finish the pack? Start the 112233 routine? I'm almost done week one already. How long will this last??

probably cause you to have a double period if you already had a period in the month. Or cause them to go haywire. I wondered that too actually Answered by Harris Marotti 4 months ago.

Side effects from Birth Control (Enpresse-28)? Please Help!?
Last month I began taking generic for Tri-Levlen 28 which was Trivora-28. Other than having a much much lighter period, I didn't notice many side effects.

Last month I began taking generic for Tri-Levlen 28 which was Trivora-28. Other than having a much much lighter period, I didn't notice many side effects. But this month, beginning last Sunday (June 3), I began taking Enpresse-28 which is also generic for Tri-Levlen 28. But as soon as I have been taking this medication (which may be a coincidence) I have been having constant diarrhea (beginning Monday, June 4). Does anyone happen to know if this sounds like it would be a side effect from Enpresse-28 even though I didn't have this problem with Trivora-28? Answered by Rossie Steigerwalt 4 months ago.
if it's a hormone based birth control it increases your risk of breast cancer. The CDC just put estrogen on the list of top ten carcinogens. Answered by Gretchen Cerao 4 months ago.

I'm on the pill and we don't use condoms (we are married), what are the chances I could get pregnant?
.... I'm not *trying* to get pregnant on the pill. Did you really write that down there?
Asked by Isidra Engberg 4 months ago.
I am taking enpresse (28 day pill series), I take it at the same time everyday and I don't take antibiotics or antacids near when I take my pill. (I've heard it can interfere with the pill being taken into your system.) Exactly what are the chances I could get pregnant? I know the success rates and all that but why does the pill not work sometime. Is it user error or does it just not work on some women? Thanks for your advice. Answered by Eulah Liebross 4 months ago.
we used oral contraceptives for 19 years without getting pregnant. my wife came off the pill for 2 months and we are due in june! Answered by Dusty Michelotti 4 months ago.
If it wouldn't be the end of the world for you to get pregnant based on your personal preferences, you should be fine. I have been on the pill for around 8 years and am careful to take it religiously, so I have been ok (so far) not using a backup method with my long-term boyfriend. I do often hear stories about women getting pregnant almost immediately after they stop taking the pill, though, so I would be extra careful if you are taking an antibiotic or if you forget to take the pill. My pill comes with instructions that tell you which weeks of the 28-cycle are the "highest risk" for pregnancy and what to do if you forget to take a pill, so you might check your instructions if that ever happens. FYI, my doctor did tell me that she has had a lot of patients end up getting pregnant who were using the Ortho "patch" and recommended that I not try it out as a result of that. I don't know if that's really true, but I would definitely ask your doctor about it if you ever decide to go that route. Answered by Kaye Winkley 4 months ago.
Most times the pill does not work because of error. Taking the pill at the same time everyday helps, and of course not forgetting to take your pill. Some women don't respond well to the pill and some women insist that they take it correctly and they still get pregnant. I got pregnant after getting my tubes tied, so who knows?? if you are very worried you could always use a ring, or gel or foam.. Answered by Season Huston 4 months ago.
I've been on Ortho Tri-Cyclen for years having unprotected sex with my serious boyfriends (and we were quite frisky) and there hasn't been anything even resembling a scare. My period starts the same day and lasts the same number of days each month. However, you are correct about all of your assertions above. I don't know how sensitive Enpresse is to having to be taken on time every day, but if you follow the directions you really won't have anything to worry about. And that makes it so much better! Answered by Dennise Souser 4 months ago.
It's merely and error in usage. If u take it everyday, and strive to do it at the same time daily, you should have a 99.9% accuracy rate. I've been on the pill for about 7 years now, and I've been steady with my boyfriend for about 5. We don't use condoms, and though it's not the smartest idea ever, I've never had an issue... Answered by Melia Oakeson 4 months ago.
If you are taking the pill correctly (never miss, etc.) your chance of getting pregnant is almost "0", and you should take comfort in the fact that the pill is the best form of birth control, except for a complete hysterectomy (which you don't want to do) Answered by Demetra Aloi 4 months ago.
Between 1-3% chance on pill, 5% chance of pregnancy with condoms. If you take antibiotics at all it interfere's with birth control. It will not make a difference if you take them at different times. That puts your chances higher if your on antibiotics. Also remember that every woman is different, your doctor is the best one to talk to about this. Answered by Carroll Camero 4 months ago.
Try not taking the antibiotics or antacids at all. Try using another alternative such as the depo shot. ( You get a shot from the doctor and it last you for 3 mths but i heard threw friends that it can get you fat or lose weight.. it depends on your body type i guess. Then my friend was on it and she still got pregnant. She found out on her 3rd mnth..so uh yea) or you can try the patch and this you place on your buttox, on your upper back either to left or the right and on your upper arm. ( I read on the internet that a girl died from a blood clot) Basically ... talk with your husband, reserach, ask your doctor and see what you guys can agree on...good luck! Answered by Melanie Peery 4 months ago.
I think it is supposed to be mostly user error. Sounds like you are being very careful. If you notice any changes in your periods or symptoms like break through spotting, that might be an indication that the dosage isn't right for you. As an alternative, you might talk to your OB about the Depo shot instead of the pill--it is supposed to be effective longer. Answered by Keven Pinkert 4 months ago.

I have hypothyroidism and as a result i have an irregular period. i used to get my period every three months now its been 5 months since my last period which only lasted 2 days. I am not pregnant I have taken a test. I am trying to start the birth control pill enpresse 28. It says to start on the first sunday following the beginning of your menstrual period or the first day of your menstrual period. Since I don't know when my period will begin can I just take it on any sunday or how do i go about doing so? Answered by Crissy Aulder 4 months ago.
If you feel like your period may not begin anytime this month, it is ok to pick a Sunday and just start the pill. It doesn't even really have to be a Sunday, you can just start taking the pills now. You doctor should have told you this when he/she prescribed the pills Answered by Ariel Gollman 4 months ago.
Just wait until for the first day of your period, there must be a reason doctors tell you to. However...it's horrible, I really hope you have no where to be your first day, or make sure you don't. It's hormones right, so your body feels a bit off. Answered by Jimmy Retek 4 months ago.
