Does ortho tri-cyclen Lo help ur boobs grow? ?
helpppppppp do u know if you take it thanks Asked by Bebe Vanterpool 1 month 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! Answered by Kathern Glowacky 1 month ago.

I used ortho tri cyclen lo for a couple of years. I didn't have any adverse side effects except fatigue. It kept my periods shorter, only 3-4 days long, and was reliable. Like any oral contraceptive, be sure you take the pill around the same time every day, as this will increase its effectiveness. I only used the pill, but I was also in a committed monogomous relationships. Please know that if you are only going to use an oral contraceptive, that it does not protect you against STDs, and actually changes the acidity and hormones of the vagina to make women more at risk for STDs. I've never had a problem or scare though, and it's been one of the best birth control pills I've taken. Answered by Dario Mergenthaler 1 month ago.

It's possible. Depends on the person. Didn't happen to me, though. Answered by Sharmaine Domingues 1 month ago.

there are only 2 things that help make your boobs grow: one is to gain A LOT of weight, and one is too get pregnant. ANYTHING else is a scam. You can exercise your pec muscles underneath your breasts, but they won't get BIGGER. If anyone SAYS there is, they are trying to scam you. Answered by Sidney Kriger 1 month ago.

My doctor switched me to Orth Cyclen Lo to see if this would lessen my symptoms. I was wondering if anyone has any stories they could share about if Orth Cyclen Lo worked for them! Thanks! Answered by Marshall Wittich 1 month ago.

The first birth control pill I ever tried was Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo - I had the same exact symptoms as you! The tiniest things would set off my waterworks, I had my first and only anxiety attack, super super mood swingy, it even made me nauseous at the same time everyday. I'd always had a 28 day cycle/5-7 day period, Ortho made my period much less predictable. I was only on it for 4 months, most people say to wait 3 and your body will adjust, but I'm not willing to suffer through those symptoms for 1/4 of a year for each hormonal method. I tried Yaz next, while I wasn't as moody as with Ortho, I was nearly constantly bummed. Not quite depressed, but definitely not myself... it also KILLED my sex drive completely. For the past 6 months my significant other and I have been using condoms and we haven't had any problems yet. I intend to try the copper IUD in the next few months. Good luck! *In response to the comment above mine - Ortho Lo is triphasic, so many women have the same mood swing issues. Answered by Luann Barahana 1 month ago.

I had the exact same problem with that pill. It made me into an over-emotional zombie and I could barely function. HATED IT!! I never tried the Lo version because I don't think it was around back when I tried OTC. But my doctor switched me onto a monophasic pill (Lo-Ovral) instead of a triphasic pill. Triphasic pills have three different levels of hormones throughout the month and can be too intense for some women. Monophasics have only one steady level of hormones. My bet is that OTC Lo is a monophasic, so you will probably be OK on that one. To be certain, call a pharmacist and ask them if Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo is a monophasic pill.

Ortho tri cyclen?
what has your experience been on it? good/bad? sideeffects? Asked by Elba Fresch 1 month ago.

Ortho Tri Cyclen was the first brand of birth control that I ever went on. I had no problems with it at all. I got it from a teen clinic when I was in high school and wanted to stay protected without telling my mom. But when I finally talked to her about it, she took me to my regular doctor to check out different brands. So after 6 months of Ortho Tri Cyclen I had no problems. I had PMS and everything, regular periods, less acne, and I was a whole cup size larger. The side effects just about the same as any pill; you gain weight, get moodier, lose your sex drive, etc...but it's fine for me. I hope you have a good experience for it. It's really hard to find the perfect brand. Answered by Latosha Meltzner 1 month ago.

I've taken Ortho Tri Cyclen-lo for 4 1/2 years and never had any major problems (until the recent breast swelling/pain). I took Ortho Tri cyclen for one month once because the pharmacy gave me the wrong one, and I found that the high dosage made me a little nauseous, but that was about it. I think the side effects depend a little less on the pill and a little more on how your body reacts to it... Answered by Darline Kinstle 1 month ago.

okay, so here's the deal. my doctor put me on ortho tri cyclen lo to regulate my period, ive been taking it for 4 months now. but i'm not very good at remembering to take it on time. and over the past 4 months i have forgotten to take a couple. me and my fiance don't use any other form of birth control. and well this month i got withdrawal bleeding, but it was a couple days late and wasn't as heavy, but lasted for the same amount of time. I have veins on my boobs, on my face around my mouth leading down onto my neck, on my legs,and on my nose, on my hips, and little ones around my cheeks. my period has been over for a couple days now, and the veins are still way noticeable. I was just wondering if the veins are because of my period or because of pregnancy... i'm gonna be taking a hpt in a few days, but i'm just curious as to what you think, any personal experiences. Answered by Lily Finnley 1 month ago.

tri cyclen lo causes funny periods. I've been on it for almost 2 years, and my periods often come a few days early and with varying degrees of heaviness. Last month, my period came when I still had 4 pills left, lasted 5 days and was much lighter than usual. I take my pills very regularly. Being paranoid, I of course am now worrying if I somehow got pregnant, although I feel normal and am expecting my period early next week. I know how you're feeling, but try not to freak yourself out. Like I said, Tri Cyclen Lo does bizarre things to periods, and if you have only been on it for 4 months your body is still getting used to it. I had nausea for the first 5 months of being on it. Good luck! Answered by Shiloh Applin 1 month ago.

I've been on ortho tri cyclen lo for about 5 months now and I am completely unhappy with the results. I gained about 7 lbs of what I assume is water weight around my stomach and love handles (my body does not respond to diet and exercise while taking the pill ), I do not have any lighter of a period, I get horrible mood swings and my sex drive is often at an all-time low. I'm going to the gyno tomorrow to see what I can switch to, and many things online say just normal ortho tri cyclen would be better for me if the lo doesn't agree with my body. i just wanted to know if any of you are on it/had the same experience with it and what I should switch to if not ortho tri cyclen. Answered by Delphine Grimshaw 1 month ago.

I've been on both ortho tri cyclen & ortho lo. I didn't gain weight with either, but with the full strength ortho I had really heavy periods & awful cramps. With the lo I had very low sex drive. I got off the pill & went with the depo lo shot. My periods went haywire. so i stopped that as well. Now i'm not on any form of birth control . My periods are still messed up. & its been almost 3 months. & before n e 1 asks NO i'm not pregnant. Answered by Sari Vitali 1 month ago.

I've used ortho try cyclen lo before and ended up getting off of it. I really didn't like how I felt on it and I also gained a lot of weight while on it. I'm actually not using any form right now because I've had some bad experiences with birth control and really don't like what it does to my body. Answered by Queen Surbaugh 1 month ago.

The first thing you need to do is figure out why your sex drive is low and try to help get it back. I was in your situation and it's not fun without being horny and feeling in the mood when needed. I also felt like my orgasms (if I would even get one) were really weak. Probably because of my sex drive. However, I tried exercising and dieting but nothing seemed to be working. I thought I was screwed. I then found something just as amazing as the vibrator. My friend at work told me about this stuff she took to raise her sex drive. It was a natural herbal supplement and was I lucky to of found it. Theres no side effects and the sex drive is just tremendous along with orgasms that are blasting. The stuff is called Hersolution pills. At the time I saved money on them at herenhancement.com What I did was tried out for 3 months and that was really it. I found taking them every other day or so was the best to stretch it out. After the months were up, I was back to normal with a beating sex drive and my orgasm strength in increased so much. Well good luck and I hope this helps. Answered by Enid Hulan 1 month ago.

I've been dealing with moderate/severe acne since I was about 10 or 11. I'm now 21 and I'm still dealing with it and at this point I can't take it anymore. I'd been going to a derm from age 11-15 until I was finally prescribed Accutane I was on a 6 month course but only finished 3 months my skin looked great but I was depressed, suicidal, gained weight, and ruined my bowel movement so I stopped early and my acne came back worse than before. So here I am now 5years later still battling acne. I've been on birth control for a month and a half now and I can't really say if its helping with my acne or not but I do know that my acne is hormonal because I get breakouts on my menstrual cycle and the week after, however I was just on my cycle about 3days ago and no new pimples, lighter period as well, last month I experienced slight depression and anxiety but that has stopped. I just want to know if anyone has had some success with this birth control on their acne. Please share your story with me. Answered by Fabian Titze 1 month ago.

Ortho Tri-cyclen is HORRIBLE!!!! I would not recommend it to anyone! I took it for about a year and it ruined me. It's a VERY strong hormone that acts more like a steroid. It atrophied my muscles and made me gain almost 30 lbs. I also have very thin, fine hair & Ortho made me start growing these thick, dark monster hairs that looked like they came out of a horse's tail. It also changed my skin & not for the better! My voice got deeper...I was pretty sure it was turning me into a man or a horse...maybe a centaur? lol But yeah, it was horrible. I only took it the once but the damage was done. It also slowed down my metabolism. And it didn't help my periods at all. My dermatologist recommended it for me because it was supposed to be good for clearing up acne. Well let me tell you, that's a complete lie! I have had way better luck with Demulen & Loestrin. Currently taking Kelnor & hating it. Oh & I also took Accutane twice at high doses & never got depression. Accutane also does not cause weight gain or bowel problems so you're misinformed. But yeah girl, stay the hell away from Ortho or you will so regret it. Answered by Mignon Koogle 1 month ago.

While Ortho Tri-Cyclen is FDA approved to treat mild to moderate hormonal acne in females, like any birth control pill it takes a few months for your body to adjust. 3 months is usually the amount of time it takes your body to settle down and side effects to disappear on a new contraceptive pill. The anti-androgen effects of Tri-Cyclen will take longer to set in until you notice a difference. Most women will not notice a significant reduction in new comedones/pimples until 6 months into therapy, which steadily increases thereafter. To increase the clearing effect, consider using an over-the-counter benzoyl peroxide lotion with a gentle cleansing routine. Acne has multiple causes beside hormonal, so you may need to combine various therapies to get significant relief. Good luck! Answered by Eric Olofson 1 month ago.

ur body is just getting used to the pill babe, i took the same ones, except it was tri cyclen lo, and had side effects too. it'll take a couple of months for u to get used to it. it says u don't have to take the green ones, but i did just so my body gets used to having a pill everyday and also so you get used to taking a pill everyday, cuz if u skip the green ones, u may forget to take a new pak.

Ortho tri cyclin lo is just like any other birth contol. You will start your first pack of pills the sunday after you start your period. You take the pills the same time everyday. You will have a period every month on your last row of pills. There are pills that give you a period every three months, but this pill is not one of them. You just continue to take them everyday at the same time, they will regulate your period and lessen the bleeding an cramps. Ortho tri cyclin lo also is also one of the few pills that helps will acne problems, if you have them. If you have any other questions, let me know. You can email me and I would be glad to answer!!! Answered by Gena Sadolsky 1 month ago.

I am on Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo too. The only wait you can skip periods is if you miss your sugar pill week, the last week in a pack. If you skip that and immediately start a new pack, you will skip your period, otherwise, you will have your period that week. Ortho makes your periods lighter and really helps with cramping. In some girls, it may even help out with acne. BC is obviously for the prevention of pregnancy, but it is also beneficial for other things. I was first put on BC when I was young to help regulate my period, and help with my cramping. I hope this helped, if you want more info, email me! Answered by Latasha Slunaker 1 month ago.


PLZ ANSWER..starting the Ortho Tri-Cyclen Lo birth control tomorrow..?
another thing does it make your breasts bigger?? just curious!.. Asked by Nancy Dekine 1 month ago.

Ortho Tri-Cyclen Lo is a lower dose than a Ortho Tri-Cyclen. Less hormones and other things. You should have spoken to your doctor about all possible side effects. Most side effects you should worry about is Blood clots if you smoke and are over the age of 35. When I was on birth control I was on Ortho Tri-Cyclen regular strength not Lo. I gained some weight, didn't have much acne, and also it regulated my periods. It will also help you if you had bad cramps prior to taking the pill. As all pills there's always certain risks. Just make yourself aware and see if the pill is right for you. Best of luck. Answered by Christoper Sirk 1 month ago.

I'm not sure what your doctor told you, so here's what you can expect: Nausea. That one is going to be fun, and it's probably going to last a couple months. Try making sure that you don't take your pill on an empty stomach. Weight gain. You might notice some difference in the scale, but that'll be because of water weight (the pill makes you retain water). On the bright side, your breasts will get bigger. Inconvenience. It's hard to take that thing every day at the same time. Set an alarm on your phone or something to keep yourself on track. Libido. You might notice a dip in your libido and/or increased dryness. If you don't know what I'm talking about, then don't worry about it. Acne. Might make your acne clear up. Might make it worse. Hormones are tricky little things. Period: here's what I wish I knew. Your period doesn't come immediately after you enter the non-active-pill week. You have to wait a couple days. Just letting you know now so that you don't have to freak out the way I did.

I've been on Ortho Tri-Cyclen Lo for about six months and I honestly didn't have any of the side effects like nausea, etc. I haven't gained any weight. It did nothing for pimples (but I don't get that many to begin with). But I have noticed that my breasts have grown a little--about half a cup size. Answered by Morris Klem 1 month ago.

I never gained weight on it and heard that gaining weight with bc pills is just a myth. I DO know that if you miss a pill you will start spotting (bleeding) and it won't really stop until you get your period and IT (your period) ends. If that made any sense. So just be careful to take one each and everyday. I switched brands due to that. But I really liked Ortho Lo. How does it affect your hair??? Please let me know. thanks. I am very curious about that!

About two weeks after a miscarriage, I started taking Ortho Tri-Cyclen Lo. I've been on it for twelve days, including today. Three days ago, pill 9 I think, I almost missed a pill, but took it later that night, around 11, before bed. (I usually take them at 7am.) Last night, my boyfriend came in me, and I'm really worried about how effective the birth control is. Please help if you can, thank you! Answered by Casie Wahr 1 month ago.

Dear Cassie, Well first love you should have waited a bit longer to have intercourse after your miscarriage by the way so sorry that happen and wish you nothing but the best and good luck.In most cases, it’s safe to resume sex after a miscarriage once the miscarriage bleeding has stopped. Generally this takes two weeks, however, all women vary. You want to wait until after the bleeding stops to give your cervix time to close up. Your body goes through a physical process from the miscarriage as your cervix dilates. Sex during this period of time increases your chances of infection in the uterus. The stopped bleeding is a signal that sex is safe to resume. Some women begin spotting at the end of this cycle, however, she should still wait to have sex until all bleeding and spotting has stopped.

Some women begin spotting at the end of this cycle, however, she should still wait to have sex until all bleeding and spotting has stopped.you should wait until after your first menstrual cycle, after the miscarriage. In most cases and during a normal recovery, your first period won’t arrive until after 4 weeks or so. It takes about 3 weeks for your hormone levels to recover from the miscarriage. Some women believe that the brownish or yellowish discharge that is exiting their vagina is a sign of fertility. The opposite is true. Regardless if you’ve waited the suggested time before resuming sex, women should not just jump back into bed in a wild fashion. Try having sex slower and softer at first, as emotions are high, more than likely for both partners. Easing back into sex with your partner after a miscarriage can heal you emotionally, and help you to enjoy sex . that all said well you are on the best birth control pills ever Ortho Tri Cyclen LO 28, as you know the 7 white pills are nothing but placebo sugar pills so they will give you time for your period.

Now if everything is ok and you have been taken your pills as it suppose to be without any infections and all your health wise is ok you are fine taken one at 7 and another at 11 p. m. will not effect that point what I'm worried about is infection and your health and emotional issues if all is ok then I pray you will be and if all you been doing it taken the pills daily then I see no problems please explain more about your miscarriage issue and if all is fine blood and hormonal issues??? good ;luck best wishes hope and pray for you for nothing but good health and healing and all will be fine, if you need more help please ask....PS: IF YOU TOOK THEM AS YOU SAID DEAR FOR A TOTAL OF TWELVE DAYS AND YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT THE BIRTH CONTROL ONE NOT THE WHITE PILLS YOU ARE FINE THE ORTHO TRI CYCLEN ARE PERFECT YOU ARE SAFE FROM THAT SIDE DEAR..
