Effective contraception methods like pills or IUDs and safe sex practices ensure that you don’t get pregnant. Whenever you have vaginal, anal, or oral sex, use condoms, dental dams, or internal condoms to avoid pregnancy or contracting STIs.
Birth control pills have hormones that may alter your period (early, delayed, or stopping). But these side effects go away in 2-3 months as your body adjusts. Some women who take the shot or contraceptive injection may skip periods, but it is entirely normal.
Some women experience milder PMS symptoms, such as irritability, headaches, mood fluctuations, or bloating, and for others, they may be more severe. There is no way to gauge why PMS occurs and whether these effects are normal. However, there is no reason that your PMS should affect your life, relationships, and career. Speak to your gyno to receive the appropriate treatment.
