i'm plaaning to use contraceptive pill to prevent from getting pregnant again. is this fine if i will use it and i had miscarraige jsut last month? is there any need to consider that it won't affect my future pregnancy?

what did your doctor say? is it OK to be on the pill soon after a miscarriage? Follow your doctor's advise on this matter.

Also as far as I can tell contraceptive use wont affect future fertility. Just stop using if you are ready to try again.

I am with the above poster. The use of BCP should be sanctioned first by your doctor.

I too was on the pill years ago and I dont think it affected my fertility issues now.

I had D&C years ago due to hormonal imbalance and was put on the pill right after the procedure. So I am sure that if your doctor gives you the go then it should be no problem.

If you are not ready then use contraceptive. Miscarriage can be very traumatic so if you're not ready just heal yourself first.

Hello girls I am new here. I'm trying read about effects of contraceptives on women. Let us just say being careful about my future. I'm only 16 but I'm doing it with my guy, I won't deny that. I don't want to get pregnant but I don't want to have a hard time later as a long-term result from taking in contraceptives.

So it is not true that contraceptives will affect me later when it is time? Silverbelle speaks of it like it is a common cold medicine. why do others say it has had bad effects on them later?

Sorry to hijack this thread.

Hello, welcome to Getting Pregnant!

From what I know, firstly, most contraceptive drugs have been approved by the right authorities as safe. It may have side effects but it's still safe.

Second, many have been around for years. I'm sure research has been done, but there are no findings of the cases of infertility linked directly to contraceptive drugs.

It is true that a significant number of women are claiming that they have developed irregular periods after they stopped taking the pills (& other medications for contraception). That's just that. I think they are more the exception rather than the rule.

Lastly, if you are apprehensive perhaps you should take some other form of contraception. something less likely to disrupt your system. You're still young. Maybe don't have sex til you're 18, but that may well be impossible.
