A member asked:

I have been bleeding on and off way before my period supposed to start and its been happening for about five days now im on sprintec birth control. the blood has been dark, brown and pinkish but today its bright red. what do you think is going on?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

The most common reason for bleeding on low dose oral bcp's ("Sprintec") is not being punctual in taking the active pills within the same hour of the prior day's active pill, causing breakthrough bleeding", or missing an active pill in a given day. Stop the current cycle, allow seven days to elapse and start a new pack of pills, which should resolve this problem.
