i am 9 weeks post partum and breastfeeding, i started taking errin three weeks ago and last week i started my period, it was really heavy for two days and then abrubtly stopped, i didnt have it for one day and then it started again, lasted one day, and stopped again (i had no cramps during this period), now it has been about a week or 5 days since it stopped and i am bleeding lightly again and also have moderate cramps.... what is up with this? Answered by Louis Munder 4 months ago.

Errin is a progestin-only pill (POP), and as such can cause your periods to be lighter or stop altogether. Since you just started this pill and are breastfeeding as well, that goes doubly for you. :P It may take awhile for your body to get used to it, but once it does, you'll probably stop your periods altogether. Give it some more time, as this isn't anything to be too concerned about at this particular stage of the game. If it continues for some months you may want to ask a doctor, but even then it may just be a side effect of the pill. One thing you'll want to make sure of is that you are taking this pill at precisely the same time every single day. POPs require a VERY rigid pill-taking schedule as they have a lot less leeway in terms of the timeframe you have for maximum effectiveness (only 1-2 hours as opposed to 6-12 hours with estrogen-containing combined hormone pills, or CHCs). If you've been taking them a bit off schedule, that can also have a lot to do with why you're spotting, as you're not maintaining regular levels of hormones by not taking them properly. Plus you put yourself at big risk for pregnancy. (I'm not saying you aren't taking them properly, I'm just saying it's something you want to be very cautious about.) Good luck!

Any one take Errin BC?
I have been taking Errin BC for 3 weeks. I feel awful - bloating, gained 6 lbs, bleeding for all 3 wks, nasuas, smells r making me sick, and very moody. Because of all of these symptoms (besides the bleeding) I think or feel preggers. Could I be or is it just the pills? Asked by Leon Galyen 4 months ago.

Could i be preggo on errin and no period this month?
I just took my last pill today(I am taking errin) and so far no period or spotting. I missed a few pills on the 2nd week of pack. Could I be Pregnant? plan to test in a few days if af isn't here. any input is appreciated. Asked by Carri Szafran 4 months ago.

If you missed a few pills, theoretically yes, you could be pregnant. Errin is slightly less effective than traditional birth control and missing pills can be very, very risky. I highly recommend taking the test. However, Errin does cause skipped or irregular periods, or may even cause you to not have a period at all. I took Errin for a year and had periods every 45 or so days until they stopped after 6-8 months. I always took a pregnancy test if I did not have a period as expected. If you're planning on being on Errin for a while, I recommend stocking up! Best of luck! Answered by Romona Schmutz 4 months ago.

Hello, I am presently two a million/two months pregnant and sure while i used to be a million month i did have cramps (to not unhealthy) i requested the healthcare professional and she or he stated it is your uterus stretching. If this cramping is followed with vaginal bleeding this would be a challenge. But once more gentle cramping is natural, Don't agonize! Answered by Terri Vantull 4 months ago.

If you can talk to your momma, talk to her a tell her what happened. I took my daughter to her GYN and he did a implant just under her skin in her arm. It is good for 5 years it is a birth control device. She was 16 when it was put in so she is safe until next year she will be 21. Talk to your momma Answered by Nathaniel Rowe 4 months ago.

if there is any question: test. that way you know what u have to do to take care of urself or start ur new pack.... Test. Even the ones from the Dollar store are fine Answered by Sonny Lajeunesse 4 months ago.


I stopped taking Errin (mini pill) about two weeks ago and haven't started my period. Is that normal?
Asked by Antonio Misove 4 months ago.

I took regular BC for 12 years. Quit, and got pregnant (on purpose) my first month off. Nursed that child for a year, while taking Errin. No problems. Went back on regular BC for a few months, then quit and conceived again my first month off. Nursed that child for a year, but had a lot of trouble with Errin. Had some month-long periods. Had 2-month stretches with no period at all. Had some ovarian cysts. Finally had to quit, and use barrier methods until I weaned my daughter. The OB says both experiences are totally normal. As long as you have no reason to believe that you're pregnant, you shouldn't worry. (Test, if you're not sure.) And talk to your doc next time you're in, or sooner if you continue to have problems.

Did you have normal period before you started taking the pill? If not, it may take a while for your period to start. Answered by Joeann Zeimet 4 months ago.

Errin birth control?
Has anyone been on Errin? what was your experience? Can you take Advil with it if its giving you headaches/chest pains? I want to quit it so is it okay to just stop in the mid of the month or should you continue to the end? Asked by Julio Arroyano 4 months ago.

I was on it and HATED IT. Loved it at first then tons of side effects were knocking my shocks off. Personally I went through 2 birth control (Errin and The Patch) after the birth of my son and hated them so it scared me to a point where I am not taking birth control right now. Just talk to you doc if you really want bc and see whats best for you. I wish you luck! Answered by Ardelle Honyumptewa 4 months ago.

Ive been on the generic verion of Errin called Jolivette for almost a year and I love it. Its the only birth control that doesnt make me feel sick (turns out I have an intolerance to estrogen in other forms of birth control). More than likely hun the headaches and chest pains arent related to the birth control and you should talk to your doctor. Generally its okay to stop mid month but that usually causes irregularity in your menstrual cycle so they often recommend stopping at the end of the month. Advil is fine to take with it as well. So is motrin, midol, ibuprofen and other over the counter pain medication. Im on naproxen which is a prescribed pain killer and I can even take that with it. So dont worry if you need to take it. Take it but check with your doctor about the headaches and especially the chest pains. You could have heartburn or some other underlying issue. Answered by Hazel Gavett 4 months ago.

i was put on birth control called errin 2 and a half weeks ago because my periods get so bad that i was missing school. also i am sexually active. My doctor who put me on this birth conrtol told me to skip the last row of pills for the first and second pack then take the last row (the plesibos) on the third pack, that way i only get my period 4 times a year, avoiding the pain. but i have been on it for 2 and a half weeks and i started my period yesterday and i am still bleeding. i haven't missed any days and i take one pill a day at 7am every day. why is this happening?? im not far into the birth control, just started. i shouldn't have a period i know that. im scared and i dont know what to do? what did i do wrong? help please!!! Answered by Martina Toper 4 months ago.

Hmm, I took Errin while I was nursing and never had a period. But then I was nursing. Before that, I used the Depo which stopped my periods. It sounds like you need to reevaulate your bc. Call up your doc and see if you can chat with a nurse. Answered by Jose Babbin 4 months ago.


Does anyone know about the birth control pill called Errin?
it is a progestrone pill, the packet comes with 28 active pills, do you still have a period on it? I just got off my period a week ago and have been on the pill for a week and started spotting this after noon. any info about it would be very helpful. Asked by Francina Ricciardi 4 months ago.

It's a progetin only pill, which means it works a little differently from the usual type of birth control pills. It works by thickening the mucous at the cervix, making it harder for sperm to get through and fertilize an egg, and it thins the lining of the uterus, so that it's not a good place for a baby to try and grow. They need to be taken at the same time each day to be most effective-with combined pills (ones that contain progetin and synthetic estrogen) you have a few hour window. With minipills (progestin only) you don't have that flexibility. They have 28 active pills, and you generally do still have a period while taking them, though many women find that periods are shorter and lighter. Some may skip periods entirely, or find that their periods may become somewhat irregular on minipills. Spotting is a common side effect of progestin only methods. Other names for the medication that is in Errin are Aygestin, Camila, Errin, Jolivette, Micronor, Nor-QD. Hope this helps. Answered by Zenobia Ansari 4 months ago.
