Customer Question
I have moved to...

I have moved to a new state and my birth control pills were sent to my old address. I am now one week without my pills. How should I continue them when I get them?

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

My doctor doesn't return my calls. I am not on any medications.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Nothing. No medical problems.

Hello my name is***** am a board-certified physician and I am happy to help you. The safest and best way to be sure your birth control pills are effective when you re-start is to wait until you have a period. Once your menstrual is light and nearly complete, start a new pack from the beginning at day 1.

What does it mean when there has been urine in my blood for a week. Can that be through sex?
OB GYN Doctor: Richard Han, Board Certified MD replied 10 months ago
I assume you meant blood in your urine. Blood in the urine can come from anywhere from the kidneys to the bladder to outside the urinary tract, like in the vagina. If you are seeing gross blood in your urine and you are not yet having a period, it’s advisable to see your doctor and have a urine test done and possibly a GYN exam.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
