Hi VPers,

As you may have noticed, we've been experiencing some technical issues with our VP.com site -- which includes, among other things, VP's rules. Obviously, we want to preserve and continue those community standards, but we think it's only fair that if we ask people to follow VP's rules, we should have them available and accessible at all times. To that end, this post (which will be stickied) will serve as a working version of those rules for the time being.

Thanks for understanding,
For the VP Team

Hello all,

After having been on Nuvaring for a couple of years I'm tired of the side effects, so I'm switching back to the pill. Before Nuvaring I was on Ortho Tricyclen, but this time they've given me Tricyclen Lo.

My boyfriend and I have been relying on the Nuvaring alone (i.e., no condoms or pull-out). But I have one friend, and I think a second mutual friend, who got pregnant on Tricyclen Lo. This is anecdotal, I know, but it's enough to give me pause.

Neither my boyfriend nor I are eager to start having to use condoms, but we're not thrilled with the idea of an oops either. If it makes any difference, I've always been good about taking my pills on time. Anyway, is there a greater risk with this particular pill?

Thanks for any help!

I am 53 years old and just recently had my annual OBGYN exam where the doctor refused to refill my BC prescription based on how high my BP was. The plan is to stop the pill and insert a Mirena IUD on January 31.

Has anyone else been in this situation? was wondering if anyone had an idea how soon after stopping the estrogen from the pill would my BP lower/normalize to what it really will be so I can have a truer reading and start the right BP med dose?
Hi Superstars!

So anytime after my husband performs oral sex on me, the inside of my labia and vagina start to itch very badly. The itching goes on for two or three days, then goes away. Could it be some sort of bacterial reaction? Or maybe a yeast infection (I've never had a yeast infection that I know of, so I don't have a good frame of reference)?

Thank you for your input!

Lost tampons

So I am already working up to making an gyno appointment but I have been told I am crazy so many times that I am trying to find some commiseration first :

Has anyone else had issues with honestly, truly, losing tampons to the black hole that is their cervix?

Breakthrough bleeding

Hi there,
I've been on Levlen for a year or so. I skipped my placebo pills for the first time last month and it was fine for the first few weeks. I'm now on the last week of active pills on this second pill pack and I've had what feels like period cramping and some brown, slightly bloody discharge for the last week or so. Is this a typical reaction? I was prepared for breakthrough bleeding but thought it would happen in the week I was supposed to take the placebo pills, not 3 weeks after! I also have IBS so I'm sometimes unsure if abdominal cramping is due to that.. First time I've ever been hanging out for a period to see if that kicks away these cramps!

Thanks for sharing your experiences :)

This is great news. I know it was already approved for up to age 45 in Australia.
