Anyone take Velivet? Does birth control make you bloated the entire time you take them?
Once you start the pill, does it make you bloated the whole time you're taking them? Or just at the beginning of the pill cycle? Or just the very first time you start the pill?

I am on Cyclessa (generic velivet) now and was actually on Velivet for a year before and I didn't notice too much weight gain before but after taking it for three years, I have gained 36 pounds :( It could just be me because I gained weight on Tri-cyclen lo as well, but I don't know. Good luck with whatever you chose because there is no way to tell what each pill will do to you because everyone is different! Answered by Shanda Larubbio 4 months ago.

Velivet Birth Control?
I have been prescribed velivet (generic of Ortho-tri), and I am looking for the cost of it without a prescription. Also, it's been a while since I've been on the pill (had IUD before), and I can't remember when do you start the pill pack? Is it after your period? I haven't gotten the prescription...

I have been prescribed velivet (generic of Ortho-tri), and I am looking for the cost of it without a prescription. Also, it's been a while since I've been on the pill (had IUD before), and I can't remember when do you start the pill pack? Is it after your period? I haven't gotten the prescription filled and I may have my dr rewrite it as the dr wrote it for three packs at a time and I don't know if I can afford it. Answered by Nelson Baldwin 4 months ago.
One thing you can do is to ask your doctor for samples of the pill you are since money is an issue (and I understand how that can be). As for when you start the pill it may depend on how the pack is set up because some like Lo/Ovral you can only start the pack on a Sunday. Most doctors will want their patients to start the pill after they have finished their period. This gives the cycle a chance to adjust to being on the medication. I would recommend getting back in touch with your doctor to see what else they want you to do. Answered by Sanjuana Lesher 4 months ago.

Is it ok to take two velivet birth control pills in one day?
Asked by Winford Hidaka 4 months ago.
It is never okay to take two birth control pills of any kind in one day- it will push too much estradiol into your system and may make the product less effective. If you've missed a dose, skip it and take your next one the following day, on schedule. Be sure to use another form of protection (condom, for example) to ensure you won't get pregnant.

Birth control question?
any info is better than than nothing.
Asked by Keith Reihl 4 months ago.
Because of insurance reasons I am switching from Nuva-ring (which I love) to Velivet an oral pill. I have no side affects from nuva-ring and am scared about the switch. Does anyone have experience w/ Velivet? Nuva-ring is a low dose hormone BC and I am not sure how it compares to Velivet. Any info would be appreciated. Answered by Theron Huewe 4 months ago.
My friend is on Velivet birth control also. The first two months she took it she has nausea and bloating. I think she vomitted once. After that she was perfectly fine, the pill just needed time to get into her system and her body had to get used to it. You may get a few side effects but they shouldn't last long.

What birth control pills are good for clearing up acne?
Also, does anyone know anything about Velivet or Apri?
Asked by Michale Sliter 4 months ago.
I haven't gained any weight or had increased hunger on birth control and as for acne, I too have hormonal acne and birth control helped a bit but I still break out before my period. I think a vegan lifestyle would probably help, I've been thinking about it myself to help clear acne, I'm also trying to drink more water because I heard that helps too.

It's a generic of Ortho. Those all work exactly the same. Answered by Bridget Threet 4 months ago.
All bc pills work the same.... preventing ovulation. Some docs prescribe some according to the body fat the gal is carrying. But they all will prevent pregnancy if you follow directions. Most are over 99.9 % effective. Short of having your tubes tied, that's about perfect. Answered by Angel Farrel 4 months ago.
What's the best brand of birth control pills?
I want a birth control pill that will help with acne but not make me gain a lot of weight or lose sex drive or anything.
Asked by Mike Uhrin 4 months ago.
I'm on Velivet (desogestrel and ethinyl estradiol) and I love it. It got rid of pretty much all of my acne, I have a great sex drive (maybe even better than when I wasn't taking the pill) and I haven't gained weight. Everybody responds differently to their pills, but Velivet worked for me. Answered by Jed Vetterkind 4 months ago.
Does weed/alcohol have any effects on Birth control pills?
people seriously...who doesn't do weed...or drink alcohol...I work at a hospital and most nurses and some of the doctors do it too....so stop judging and give me real answers.....and thanks to those who have given me real answers
Asked by Susann Lacerte 4 months ago.
Alcohol definitly doesn't, not sure about weed sorry! The only thing that could be a factor with alcohol is if you threw up within a few hours of taking the pill. Answered by Jodee Sobiech 4 months ago.
There are many possible side effects to the pill, the most common are spotting (bleeding between periods) weight gain (according to the doctor it should be no more that 2-3lbs) acne improving or getting worse, sensitivity to sunlight, cramps etc. There are more serious symptoms of allergic reactions which may affect you. Long term, taking the pill may make it more difficult to get pregnant. The longer you take it the harder it is, yet, the longer you are off it the easier it becomes. Also, the pill only works if you are VERY disciplined. You have to take it every day at the same time (within an hour). Missed doses or late doses could cause you to become pregnant. The best thing to do is talk to a doctor about it (I prefer the OB/GYN). Tell him/her what you are looking for in the birth control, what you don't want, and your concerns. Most doctors are very knowledgeable and will help you chose the best fit for you. Answered by Lucilla Biggs 4 months ago.
