there are combinatio pills and progestin-only pill... then there's monophasic,biphasic and triphasic... i wud suggest combination monophasic... my doctor told me it's the same levels of hormones so it's less mood changes (up & down) ... for some ppl symptoms outweigh the advantages of BC... symptoms can include nausea, headaches, increase in acne, low sex drive, weight gain/loss, bleeding, etc. but these usually go away within 3 months... some advantages are lighter period, no cramps, decrease in acne, no pregnancy = ] some BC can make ur period every 3 months but i wud say stick to the once a month! ur period is gonna b little to nothing (2-3 days) sometimes all you'll need is a liner! if ur comfortable talking to ur mom, go ahead! but speaking with a gynecologist is best!---if ur mom says no then you can wither wait till u move out for college, like i did (lol)... or go to a local planned parenthood! good luck!

To find the best type for you it is necessary to make an appointment and actually talk to an ob/gyn. All have risks, the most common being mood swings, spotting in between periods, and with most weight gain. Some pills offer a 'period every three months' but those will come with more risks due to the larger and longer amount of hormones you would be introducing to your body. Spotting is also a lot more common and is unpredictable.

When you are on the pill you NEVER get a "period" because the pill prevents ovulation. A period is the flushing out of the uterus because no egg has been implanted. The bleeding that occurs while on the pill is just breakthru bleeding or w/drawal..and bleeding isn't necessary at all, they arrange it that way...to have bleeding......because women feel better when they have it. Call a Family Planning Center and ask you questions. They will be much more accurate about varieties for your age.

Osgood Originally Answered: While taking the Alli diet pill, does it matter if you take the pill before your meal or after?
It's better if you take it before the meal since the pill is designed to get rid of some of the fat that is in your meal. Also, from personal experience, I found it to help curb my appetite and eat less of my meal.
