When can you have sex without a condom after taking Ortho Micronor?
Asked by Cassie Dunmire 12 months ago.
It's really best to be on the medication for one month prior to unprotected sex, although the following instructions are from the company. "Begin taking Ortho Micronor on the first day of your menstrual period. If you begin taking Ortho Micronor on a different day, use a backup method of birth control (eg, condoms, spermicides) for the next 48 hours. Take Ortho Micronor at the same time every day, with doses not more than 24 hours apart. Start the next pack the day after the last pack is finished. There is no break between packs. Be sure to call in your refills ahead of time so that your next pack will be ready. If you take Ortho Micronor more than 3 hours late, or if you vomit soon after taking Ortho Micronor , use a backup method of birth control (eg, condoms, spermicides) for the next 48 hours.

i'm presently on Ortho Micro Nor myself. i'm getting a era each month yet all people is diverse. If no longer having a era bothers you that badly possibly you may evaluate switching to a diverse tablet. Answered by Van Dellaripa 12 months ago.

I was taking Micronor for a bit. After I had my daughter (2nd child.) I was breastfeeding and I used it while breastfeeding. I missed one two times in one week and got pregnant after a year on it. Shame on me..I know. I forgot though. I did not notice any side effects. The weight gain was from late night Wendy's runs. :) She seemed to be eating a lot Or she did to me. I never thought it was the pills. (This birth control may cause weight gain, depression, fatigue, acne, oily scalp, hair loss, decrease in breast size and may increase susceptibility to yeast infections. If these effects persist or become intolerable, inform your doctor as soon as possible. ) I had a Mirena IUD. (I think they called it paraguard because the military is cheap.)You can keep that for ten years. I think it works rather well. Some women have a little blood each month, some women bleed more. I started gradually bleeding more. Each month the cramps and blood was too much for me. I had it removed after almost 6 years. The reason was because I was bleeding too much and it worried me. (Plus I want another baby.) And I was borderline anemic. Whether from that or so many babies and not eating well, they were not sure. When I had it inserted, it was fine. I had a few mild cramps and still was able to move and walk and go on with everyday stuff. I was also breastfeeding. I did not spot any when it was inserted, there was a bit of mucus. I walked to the van, I should not have! But I was tough, so I did it anyway. It hurt horribly when it was removed!!! Took several hard yanks and I jerked each time. He almost gave up on doing it himself. (not the same doctor that put it in.) Hurt sort of bad. Pain scale....insertion...1. Removal....7-7.5. (high pain toleration.)

I HIGHLY recommend the Mirena! I have had it for 2 1/2 months now, no period :) I do not have to remember taking it....cause it stays put for 5 years or unless I want it out sooner! I have not had any side affects at all, no weight gain. It is the most effective birth control out there. It really did not hurt that bad, slight cramping that's all though! If you have normal yearly pap smear and it isn't too uncomfortable, then this wouldn't be either!!! Try it out, I was only there but 10 minutes and it was in! I was able to have sex 24 hours after it was put in :) Answered by Roselee Chee 12 months ago.
I'm thinking about using the Micronor birth control. If you used it, what side effects did you have? Like it?
Asked by Krissy Wank 12 months ago.
Micronor is a progestin only pill. It is mainly for ppl that have high B/P, are breastfeeding and other things. When I worked in the clinic most girls didnt want to be on it because you have to really be on your toes to take this. It is effective but not quite as much as the combined oral contraceptives-they have progestin and estrogen. You have to take this pill AT THE SAME TIME every day. This is VERY important in order to be successful with this pill, in other words--not get pregnant. There were some of the usual side effects like nausea, Headaches etc.. These usually subside with continued use and your body adjusts. Except for breakthru bleeding--that can continue the whole time you are on it. That was the thing that most complained about and wouldnt continue it because of it. My patients would only use it if they had no other choice. I know this sounds really negative but it is just the truth.. Good Luck... Answered by Earnest Solecki 12 months ago.

Any help would be appreciated! I am just using condoms now and with all these potential side effects I think that may just be easier! Answered by Arlean Schott 12 months ago.
I am on the Ortho Micronor. I have been on it for over a year now. I have not had any of the side effect of the pill. As we all know every pill has it's own side effect, but for most women they never experience it . When I first started using Micronor the first month my period was late by two weeks. Then after that they became regular again. The only thing with this pill is that you have to take it daily and at the same time. Since being on this pill my cycles are not heavy..and it is common not get get a period at all. But from personal experience with this pill is be careful. I missed one pill and ended up getting pregnant. I lost the baby due to miscarriage two months ago today. I have stopped taking this pill and have used condoms since. So with that being said, if you feel better not taking the pill and using condoms instead, I would agree with you 100% based on my own experience with this pill. But on the other hand , some women this pill works well for. So I think that it is all a matter of if this pill is right for you. Hope this helps. Answered by Ericka Riden 12 months ago.

For instance, if I miss a pill (say Saturday) should I just skip that particular pill in my pack, or can I take Saturday's missed pill on Sunday and just continue on. Is that confusing? If each pill has a different amount of chemical and/or hormone in it than, of course, that would be a bad idea. Thanks for anyone who can help me out! :-) Answered by Macy Lesneski 12 months ago.
All of the micronor pills are the same. If you miss a pill today, then you are to take it as soon as you remember it, then continue taking your pills at your normal time. If you are more than 2 hours late taking your pill one day, for the next 2 days, you need to use a backup method of birthcontrol. My dr actually recommended that I use backup for the next 7 days after taking one late. With micronor, you must be very careful to take your pills exactly as they say or they are not as effective (only about 92% instead of 99%). I have been on micronor for several months now and just use my cell phone alarm to remind me every day to take a pill and they work great--except that they give me very irregular periods, like 22 days one month and then 45 days before the next one, which is supposed to be a common side effect. Feel free to e-mail me if you have any other questions about your pills. Answered by Parker Gent 12 months ago.

I don't mean to be naive but I've never been on any kind of birth control before so I really don't know what I'm doing or what she's talking about. When should I start taking this pill? Do I take it in the morning, evening, before or right after sex? If anyone can get back to me that'll be great :) Answered by Reena Pires 12 months ago.
I am assuming that you have not had sex yet and that you are breastfeeding. wait one more week and start the pills on sunday. sounds like you do not know much about birth control. micronor is the minipill, it only has one hormone in it-it is not the same as the regular birth control pill. the only women who use it are breastfeeding moms. if you are not breastfeeding, you should not be on micronor unless there is some other reason for you not to take hormones. morning, evening doesnt matter. whatever is easier for you to remember it every single day sex certainly doesnt matter-you do know you have to take it everyday right, not just when you have sex. it is VERY VERY important that micronor be taken every single day at approxiametely the same time of the day. micronor is not like the regular pill, you cannot be late or miss pills and then take 2 later. taking micronor late will greatly increase your chances of becoming pregnant. use condoms for the first month, but you really should not be having sex for another 3 wk or so anyway. when you see your doctor at your next visit, be sure to discuss your birth control with them. if you are not breastfeeding, ask your doctor for a different method Answered by Tammara Rosander 12 months ago.
i think she means u should take the first pill on the pack on the 2nd week after you 've given birth. but you didn't, right? i think you should wait for your 1st menstruation for you to start your first pill. take it on the first day of your menstruation at the time most comfortable to you, the time you can always remember to take it everyday. it may be morning, after your meal, or after you toothbrush. it all depends on you, just take it the same time everyday. also check with the insert that came with your pill. it always have instructions on when you will first take it. some pill brands say that you should start on the sunday after the 1st day of your menstruation. but you need back up method like condoms for 1 week.

I've been taking it since August and I'm breastfeeding but only like four times a day now. I told my doctor I never get my period and he didn't really say anything about it. I'm just a little freaked out because my daughter is getting older and becoming less interested in nursing and I don't want to get pregnant while taking it because I'm not nursing as much. I read on the info pamphlet that something about nursing at least 6 months before switching to a combined pill. Anyone have any answers on how to go about this situation? I wish my doctor had been more informative. He told me to come back when I was ready to stop nursing all together. Answered by Taunya Gabrelcik 12 months ago.
I am also taking Micronor & I just recently got my period for the first time since my son was born. (he is 9 mo.) To my surprise I was informed on my last visit (even though I was not having a period at that time) that even while on micronor, if I am nursing less than 5 times a day there is still a possibility of getting pregnant! My doctor told me that if I do swtich to the other pill, I will stop producing milk almost instantly, so unless you are ready to stop breastfeeding all together stay on micronor and use condoms. My doctor also talked to me about the IUD Its hormone free & wont stop your milk from coming in you can go to this website for more information on the IUD...www.mirena-us.com I am in a similar situation as my son is nursing less but not ready to stop all together... so I chose to stay on micronor and just use condoms...
