Hey ladies. I had my DD on December 14th. I started birth control pills on January 3rd. Does anyone have any idea when I will get my period? Is it safe to assume that I will get my period when I am taking the pills that you are suppose to be taking when you have a period or is this first month going to be messed up?? Any idea???
ok first off you dont start any form of birth control other than condoms until your 6 week checkup...secondly you cannot just begin the pill anytime..you need to have had a period..i go with the sunday start and so i have a period and that sunday following i begin the pill...
i hope you know that #1 you are not protected for having taken the pill like that-if you have resumed intercourse and #2 the bleeding you experience after the birth of your dd was not a period...its lochia or something like that...before you begin a form of bc you need to have your own period which all depends...i stopped bleeding ds was 2 weeks old and 4 weeks later got my period...i had just finished the day before i saw my ob for the 6 week check-up...
Actually the birth control pills that my OB put me on I could start that day. I read all the information on them. I also talked with my OB about them. I would never just start taking pills without talking to her first. She is the one that prescribed them for me. And I didn't have to wait for 6 weeks after my c-section, she said that was unnecessary too. Also, I know that the pill doesn't really take effective for a month so I am not having unprotective sex....lol...I am not stupid. I did read up on these pills before I started taking them. The pill that I am taking is a chewable birth control pill and you can start them anytime of the week, doesn't have to be a Sunday and it doesn't have to be after your period. :-)
What kind of birth control pills are they? Are you breastfeeding? I know after my first dd, I was on the mini pill, since I was breastfeeding, and the combo of that pill and nursing kept me from getting a period for almost a year! This time I am not on the pill, but am breastfeeding, and I haven't gotten a period yet. It has been 4 and a half months since my c-section. Oh, my first was a c-section too.
wow chewable birth control...ive never heard of those...i didnt mean to come off sounding rude or anything just as i was readin the first post i was like omg...wth lol but you clarified everything...i guess every ob is different and i suppose where you live can determine that as well...due to the availability of things...but thank you for clarifying..reading that i was like okay i dont think she wants another baby right away lol...anyways thats so cool what are those bc called???
my sister-in-law just stopped bleeding about 2 weeks ago and she had her DD on August 31st. So she actually doesn't know if she started hers or not or if it was just from the c-section....she also did this with her son 3 years ago
