I'm changing to a new birth control and my doctor recommended Ovral, I'm doing some research and I'm not sure which would work better for me. I'm currently taking Ocella and before almost two years ago when I started I had sever menstrual pains and super heavy bleeding and it was never regular. I use birth control mainly for my menstrual symptoms but I also use it as a prevention from pregnancy. Which would be better for me? I'd like to hear from someone who knows about these, who has taken them, or understands the difference between them and what I need them for. Answered by Cristi Pippens 2 months ago.

Ovral L has .02mg of ethinyl estradiol (an artificial estrogen) and .1mg of levonorgestrel (an artificial progesterone) Ovral G has .05mg of ethinyl estradiol (an artificial estrogen) and .5mg of norgestrel (an artificial progesterone) What you had been taking, Ocella, has .03mg of ethinyl estradiol and 3mg of drospirenone (an artificial progesterone). OK, so they all have the same type of estrogen with .02mg being the smallest dose in any monthly birth control pill on the market, .03mg being in the middle for all drugs on the market, and .5mg being the highest of all the estrogen amounts in birth control pills on the market. Since women typically get fewer side effects with lower amounts of estrogen, that would suggest you should try Ovral L. As for the 3 different progesterones: they are not really easy to compare. They are quite different formulations and just because one has .1mg and another has 3 mg, that doesn't mean that one is better than another, because the one that has .1mg is a stronger drug than the one that has 3 mg. There's no way to tell which type of progesterone you'd prefer because everyone is different. That's why there are many different progesterones out there. If one was clearly better than all the others, then everyone would use the same kind. But if I were you, I'd try the Ovral L, because it has in general the lowest amount of hormones in it. If you end up with problems with it, then you can try the Ovral G instead. But I think you'll probably have fewer side effects on Ovral L. who knows, you might need the higher dose in Ovral G to override your own hormones. But there's no way to tell till you try.

Does anybody know about the specific side effects of birth controls pills called 'microgynon' and Ovral L'?
I've noticed that I've gained weight instantly when I use microgynon and I wanted to switch to Ovral L but I'm not sure of the side effects Asked by Joline Droggitis 2 months ago.

Well, for starters, this Lo Ovral pill you are thinking of taking might have the same effect as the pill you are on now. You will not know until you try the new pill. If you still get the same effect then you might want to try another to find the pill that's right for you and your body. I personally take Ortho-Tri Cyclen Lo and haven't gained extra weight that I didn't put on myself. Before that I tried Loestrin, so like I said you need to try different types to find the right one for you. Anyway, there is an array of side effects for the birth control pill and you can see all of them listed below at the following websites. The second site is specifically for Lo Ovral side effects, but I must warn you that wieght gain or appetite change is a side effect for all birth controls but they all don't have to affect you that way. The side effects are pretty scary but it is worth it in the end, and it also lowers your chance of breast cancer. Good luck on choosing the right birth control for YOU. P.S. The last site listed has all the different birth control pills that are out there and which are better for what problems you have. I hope this helps! Answered by Dawn Olli 2 months ago.

(micro)These side effects may go away during treatment as your body adjusts to the medicine. However, check with your doctor if any of the following side effects continue or are bothersome: More common Abdominal cramping or bloating; acne (usually less common after first 3 months and may improve if acne already exists); breast pain, tenderness, or swelling; dizziness; nausea; swelling of ankles and feet; unusual tiredness or weakness; vomiting Less common Brown, blotchy spots on exposed skin; gain or loss of body or facial hair; increased or decreased interest in sexual intercourse; increased sensitivity of skin to sunlight; weight gain or loss (OVAL)mild nausea, vomiting, bloating, stomach cramps; breast pain, tenderness, or swelling; freckles or darkening of facial skin; increased hair growth, loss of scalp hair; changes in weight or appetite; problems with contact lenses; vaginal itching or discharge; changes in your menstrual periods, decreased sex drive; or nervousness, dizziness, tired feeling.

I'm going to start using Lo-ovral. My ginecologist is using the pills to change my period cicle (to have no period in my wedding day and honeymoon). I'm getting married on Dec, and I'm a virgin so I'm paranoid because I don't want to get pregnant. I started using the pills on nov 6 I'm going to use this pattern: First pack: start on nov 6- end on nov 21 Second pack: start on nov 26 - en on dec 14 third pack: start on dec 21- end the package..and continue normal usage. What are the probabilities of getting pregnant... does this increase my chances of pregnancy?? Do my future husband have to use a condom for the first month?? Second opinion please.. Thanks in advance. Answered by Loura Stimits 2 months ago.

I know you asked for Gyno help, but not only is someone on here probably not a Gyno even if they say they are, but Gyno's can be really deceptive at times. Let me warn you about a couple of things with the pill (and yes, I took lo-Ovral and have since researched the pill a lot). The biggest thing of concern is that some birth control pills work in a way that could cause early abortion. As a matter of fact, it is the low dose pills (which most of them are low dose now-a-days) that do cause the early abortion, because instead of preventing ovulation, they tend to stop implantation, so an already fertilized egg (your baby) can not come to you for the nourishment it needs and therefore dies. Most Dr's don't inform you of this, I didn't know about it until recently (and I haven't been on BC in years) and had I known it I would have NEVER taken it as I am morally opposed to abortion in any form. Lo-Ovral is a lower dose hormone, it may not work for you. It didn't for me, I bled through constantly the entire time I was on it, it was horrible. They upped me to a higher hormone, and it worked for a while, but then I went back to bleeding all the time. In addition to this, I had the other typical side effects, like weight gain (oh that really sucks, esspecially if you are about to get married) loss of sex drive (you are going to do it for the first time and likely not even enjoy it like you should!) etc... BC can actually permenantly destory your sex drive. If I were you (or if I could go back in time and change what I did) DO NOT TAKE THE PILL. Use a condom, the effectiveness is near the exact same but without all the nasty side effects and possible moral issues. They have female condoms too. And, if you are really scared, use spermicide and other things. None of this in natural, the act of sex is the act of creating a child, so no matter what there is going to be a possibility of pregnancy. One thing to look into in NATURAL FAMILY PLANNING and tracking your BBT and cervical mucous. If you are in love with your hubby, I won't stress out too much, even if you did end up pregnant, children are absolute blessings and you will cherish that "accident" for the rest of your life. Main point: Save your body now while you can, don't cause permanent damage to your sex drive and etc when you have other alternatives. Trust someone who has been there. Hope this helps and goodluck and hope you wedding goes well! Answered by Min Batzri 2 months ago.

If you really don't want to get preg. Make him use a condom on top of your BC. At least for a couple of months until your body works the BC through. Answered by Nia Dommer 2 months ago.


Does Lo Ovral increase breast size?
I'm starting the pill and I want to know if breast enhancement is a side effect? Asked by Jamison Bertelson 2 months ago.

One side effect is swelling of the breasts, but not breast enhancement per se. Here's a list of possible side effects. Lo Ovral side effects Get emergency medical help if you have any of these signs of an allergic reaction: hives; difficulty breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat. Stop using Lo Ovral and call your doctor at once if you have any of these serious side effects: sudden numbness or weakness, especially on one side of the body; sudden headache, confusion, problems with vision, speech, or balance; chest pain or heavy feeling, pain spreading to the arm or shoulder, nausea, sweating, general ill feeling; a change in the pattern or severity of migraine headaches; nausea, stomach pain, low fever, loss of appetite, dark urine, clay-colored stools, jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes); swelling in your hands, ankles, or feet; a breast lump; or symptoms of depression (sleep problems, weakness, mood changes). Less serious side effects may include: mild nausea, vomiting, bloating, stomach cramps; breast pain, tenderness, or swelling; freckles or darkening of facial skin; increased hair growth, loss of scalp hair; changes in weight or appetite; problems with contact lenses; vaginal itching or discharge; changes in your menstrual periods, decreased sex drive; or nervousness, dizziness, tired feeling. This is not a complete list of side effects and others may occur. Tell your doctor about any unusual or bothersome side effect. You may report side effects to FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088. Answered by Asuncion Bannon 2 months ago.

all birth control pills react differently with different women. some women gain weight, while others lose weight. If you increase your breast size, other sizes will probably follow suit, such as jeans/pants. talk to your doctor about birth control pills because there can also be some other side effects that are not as glamorous as increasing breast size Answered by Porsche Ello 2 months ago.

i took lo-ovral for about 2 years. very little to no weight gain and light periods. usually lasting about 3-4 days. never got sick. i go to the clinic on base so they changed to a generic brand of the lo-ovral which made me completely sick so now i take yasmin which is also known for little to no weight gain and light periods. also lo-ovral is supposed to minimize any cramping.. good bc Answered by Lorna Broaddus 2 months ago.


Has ant one used the birth control Lo-Ovral?
Did you like it does it really lighten your periods, my doctor says I can also skip the period pills and start a new pack and not have my period for 3 months is this true?????? Asked by Aimee Masgalas 2 months ago.

I used lo-ovral years ago when I first married. At first it was helpful with my menstrual cramps (the main reason I went on it), however, then I had a period that lasted for way too long, so I went off of it. That doesn't mean, of course, that you will have the same sort of experience. :) Everyone is different, what works for one might not work the same for another. Any birth control pill can stop the periods, really, if the placebo pills are skipped and the active pills are taken consistently. This can be done as long as your doctor okays it, naturally.

Yes, I have taken Lo/Ovral in the past and had pretty good results with it when it came to keeping the periods under control. Because of other medical problems such as endometriosis I have to keep from having periods now so for my purpose the Lo/Ovral wasn't good but if I do have go back to having periods I would go back on the Lo/Ovral because it made my periods less painful.

Did Lo/Ovral make your breast grow???
HELP!!!! ANSWER!!!!!!!!! Asked by Terry Prigmore 2 months ago.

Yes, Lo/Ovral (like other brands of birth control pills) can make the breasts grow a bit larger as well as a bit more tender. The reason that this occurs is because of the hormone in the medication. When I started to have issues with this I ended up getting a bigger bra to make it less painful. If you have other questions for me please feel free to e-mail or IM me off site any time.

Lo/Ovral and breakthrough bleeding?
I started Lo/Ovral recently and this is my second week on it after the other birth control didn't work well. But last night I had breakthrough bleeding it stopped today though. It should last only a day right? and will it come back and when? Asked by Saturnina Ossola 2 months ago.

Breakthrough bleeding on the pill such as Lo/Ovral can come and go by starting one day and lasting for a few days and then stop again for a few days. It can also sometimes go on continuously during the whole time that the body s trying to adjust to the medication (I've had this happen to me before especially on other brands of birth control pills). It can take the body 3 months to fully adjust to the medication. Another word about breakthrough bleeding when it occurs is that it can get heavy enough to act a lot like a period but isn't. I would recommend checking with your doctor as well to see what they say. Answered by Dorie Raduenz 2 months ago.
