Anyone ever take this birth control

Was recently pregnant, miscarried probably due to my endometeriosis that came back since having my son, was for the better the pregnancy wasn't planned anyways. My doctor wants to have me on a pill called microgestin to regulate my hormone levels and to not get pregnant again since i got pregnant using a condom . Anyone been on this? I wont be starting it until i get a normal period again whenever that may be since im so screwed up now. Any side effects?

  • I did some have said side effects some have not. I have never been on hormonal contraceptive, always used condoms, spermicide etc. Kind of afraid to get on anything

  • NEVER HEARD OF THAT EITHER I AM ON YASMIN & SO FAR ITS BEEN VERY GOOD NO SIDE AFFECTS AND VERY POPULAR. MAYBE ASK YOUR DR. MORE ABOUT A DIFFERENT ONE? THAT WAS REAL BAD LUCK WITH THE CONDOM RIGHT? THATS WHY I WENT ON ALSO AS I AM FREAKED THE CONDOM WILL BREAK ALTHOUGH ITS SO RARE OF A SITUATION I THINK. WHEN YOU ARE ON ONE FINALLY USE CONDOMS ALSO TO EASE YOUR MIND FOR A WHILE. IT TAKES A FEW MONTHS FOR THE PILL TO BE EFFECTIVE, SO THEYS AY.

  • no it doesn't cause you to miss periods? maybe you are thinking of YAZ?? not sure but no Yasmin is good I used to be on ortho777 for many years also, but Yasmin is a newer popular less side affects pill. But to keep in mind all pills are different for everyone. The only thing warned about Yasmin is it can make your potassium level high if you have a heart condition so not to take if ya have heart issues. Every bc has possible risks they have to be told up front but if you are healthy there isn't a real worry just like anything else.
