Can stopping birth control cause irregular periods?

Yes it is possible to experience an irregular menstral cycle when you discontinue taking birth control. This is because when you take birth control it actually regulates your period. By stopping birth control you may experience breakthrough bleeding. Breakthrough bleeding is when you menstruate at times when you normally would not begin your menstral cycle. Breakthrough bleeding can possibly last for up to a full period or longer. Stopping birth control may also stop your period for a month or longer or you may not receive your period around the normal time of which you used to when you were taking your birth control.It depends sometimes you're period gets normal after birth control but sometimes it may still keep being irregular. It depends on the person and or pills


What if you missed 2 pills and had a full blown period is that normal?

Yes, this can occur. You need to restart taking birth control pills, and use condoms for the next 4 weeks to prevent pregnancy from occurring.


Can you chew the birth control pill?

Birth control pills are taken by mouth and swallowed with a liquid. In late 2003, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved a spearmint-flavored chewable birth control pill called Ovcon 35. These pills contain the same hormones, progestin and estrogen, that are present in standard birth control pills. Packages contain 21 active pills and 7 inactive pills to be taken throughout one menstrual cycle. You may chew the pills or swallow them whole. If you chew the pill, you should drink 8 ounces of water afterward to make sure the full dose reaches your stomach. The chewable version has similar side effects to other birth control pills, such as an increased risk for blood clots, heart attacks, and strokes. It works just as well.

What happens on each month?

what are you talking about? there's a full moon each month, but i dunno if that's what you're asking.

the full moon phase happens every end of the month then in the starting of each month theres a new moon when it's the last day of the month or close to it there will be a full moon again so that happens every month p.s. you should do ur own homework not let somebody do it for u lol
