Hi, How are you? If you continued taking your birth control pill while pregnant,do not be alarmed. This is because there is very little evidence that exposure to the hormones in birth control pills causes birth defects. However, stop taking Diane 35 at this point. Since the birth control pill is still a potent estrogen to prevent possible miscarriage in early pregnancy. To confirm if pregnant or not, you can check with another urine pregnancy test or take the more accurate serum HCG test. It is possible to be pregnant especially if your last menstruation was the implantation bleeding which is usually mistaken for a regular bleeding. Take care and do keep us posted.

i am 40 yrs old can i take any contr?aceptive pills

Comment by Amy on Wed 06, Oct 2010 08:10am:
Hi, I've been taking Diane 35 for about 8months and never missed it. But started the present one on the last day of my last menses the 24th of sept. Now I'm on the 13th today the 6th of October but had sex on the 2&3. I went to the bathroom some few minutes ago and realized I was having a slightly red blood after peeing. Could I be pregnant while using Diane? Should I stop? I'm confused, why the blood after 13days from the last day of my last period? Pls help.

Comment by Lois on Mon 11, Oct 2010 06:10am:
could i start using diane-35 2 days after my period ended or do i have to start it on the 1st day.

Response by Dr Rowena S, MD on Fri 22, Oct 2010 07:27am:
Hi vanessa, How are you? As long as you are still ovulating and you want to have a birth control method, you can still take oral contraceptives. However, talk to your gynecologist about and have proper evaluation. Medical history and presence of co-morbid conditions are also essential in determining if you are still suitable for OCPs. Take care and regards.

Response by Dr Rowena S, MD on Fri 22, Oct 2010 07:33am:
Hi Amy, Thank you for posting. If you had changes in taking your OCP, this could result to hormonal changes and your symptoms. As long as you are taking it as prescribed, there is nothing to be worried about. Otherwise, implantation bleeding may be present. This can be ruled out with pregnancy tests. Other differentials include kidney stones or infection of the urinary tract. If it persists, check with your doctor for proper management. Take care and do keep us posted.

Response by Dr Rowena S, MD on Fri 22, Oct 2010 07:42am:
Hi Lois, If there is no preceding hormonal contraceptive use in the past month, tablet-taking has to start on day 1 of your cycle or the first day of your period. You can start on days 2-5 but during the first cycle a barrier method is recommended. If you are changing from another combined oral contraceptive (COC), start on the day after the last active tablet of previous COC. If you opt to start later, you must have barrier method for the first 2 weeks or if there was contact, you should first exclude pregnancy. Take care and regards.

Comment by lisa on Tue 23, Nov 2010 06:18am:
Hi i amtaking diane 35 consistently for 5 months now. i started a new pack wednesday (nov.17)but i missed a tablet last sunday (nov.21). I immediately took the tablet(monday) same time as i usually take it which means i took 2 tablets at the same time yesterday(monday). the problem is, during the 7 break period i had sexual intercourse specifically nov.10 (wednesday). I had period again nov.14.. now i'm not sure if i might get pregnant? i'm really worried. please advise.

Comment by jennifer on Mon 10, Jan 2011 03:26am:
hi i've been starting taking diane 35 3days after my bf and i had contact,and this week i've been waiting my period to come but i do never had. its one week lapse from the estimated day of my period,i take PT and its ngeative,am worried what if i was into my unwanted pregnancy?

Response by Dr Rowena S, MD on Sun 23, Jan 2011 05:10pm:
Hi glensa, One of the side effect of oral contraceptive pills is irregular menstruation. As long as you are taking the pill as prescribed, the chance of pregnancy is low. Take care and regards.

Response by Dr Rowena S, MD on Sun 23, Jan 2011 05:14pm:
Hi sha, If you stopped your OCP, the resulting irregular menstruation is a possible effect. Your cycle will return to normal once your hormones stabilize. If bleeding persists, check with your gynecologist for proper evaluation. Take care and regards.

Response by Dr Rowena S, MD on Sun 23, Jan 2011 05:16pm:
Hi Jennifer, you can try the more accurate serum HCG test to determine of you conceived or not. Since you took the pill after a few days from contact, there is a chance of pregnancy. And the chance of pregnancy increases if you were ovulating at the time of sexual contact.Take care and regards.

hi! iv been taking diane 35 for 2 mos. but its been 9 days since the last tablet i took,instead of continuing aftr the 7 day free tablet. can i stil continue to take even if its beyond 7 days? is there a posibility for me to get pregnant if ihad unprotected sex 3 days from now? thnks

Comment by on Sun 17, Apr 2011 09:52pm:
You have to take Diane 35 for 21 days and this is followed by a 7 day pill free period. If you have missed starting the pills again, then start it on the first Sunday after your 7 day pill free week. This is called Sunday start method of taking the pills. Use a condom in the meantime to prevent any pregnancy.

Comment by Jen on Sun 01, May 2011 04:57am:
hi im jenny, i was just worried of getting pregnant. My bf and i had unprotected sex yesterday and I know I'm fertile because of the egg yolk appearance of my discharge, I took diane35 as a preventive measure. We are worried abt the pre-cum, will i still be pregnant even though i immediately started taking diane35 the next day? I would appreciate your response =)
