Advice on contraceptive pill?

Asked by pwincess99 (123points) May 20th, 2010

OK so im on microgynon 30 and i take my pill for 2 months before having a break, i spoke to a friend and she said its wrong to do so as it can affect my fertility, is this true? also i have my period for 7 days whether i take the pill for 1 or 2 months. would there be anything i could take to make my period shorter? i don’t like the implant idea and im petrified of needles. i wondered if there was a pill i could take with no break, thanks

The longest I’ve seen any of the pills advertised be taken without a period is 3 months (Seasonale and Seasonique). As long as you are healthy and not intending to get pregnant at this time, there is no medical need to have a period every month. That being said, it is best to talk to your GYN about it and what is best for you. Some GYN’s will allow their patient’s to take other pills for several months before having a period, but that should only be done under the advice of your GYN.

Your friend obviously doesn’t have a clue what they’re talking about. It won’t make you infertile.

You need to have this discussion with your GYN, not friends and Fluther strangers.

Taking the pill for two consecutive months has no effect on your future fertility.

There are some pills that will make your period shorter, but it’s hard to know how different pills will affect you before you take them. Not sure if this is what you meant by “implant” (or if you’re talking about Norplant), but the Mirena IUD tends to make periods shorter and lighter or eliminate them altogether.

As mentioned above, Seasonale and Seasonique make it so that you only have a period every 3 months.

You’re talking about medicine. Please consult a medical professional. An internet forum is not the appropriate place to seek help with this issue. Why trust just anyone? Go to the source: whomever prescribed this drug to you.
