Am on the pill + tegretol. Have 12 days til next period but have old blood spotting and brighter red blood clots too, not large. Just had colonoscopy?
Tegretol: Low platelets from tegretol due to bone marrow supression can occur (rarely). This can lead to bleeding.

Or the breakthrough bleeding may be totally unrelated. See your doctor and get examined. You might want to get a CBC too. ...Read more

Be sure to change tampons at least every 4-6 hours. ...Read more
What to do if I have my period sometimes regularly but sometimes I can take up to 3 months to get my period, does that mean I'm not fertile ?
Possibly!: You definetly have some irregularity. I would suspect that the periods you are having are not even hormonal and may be due to not releasing an egg. If this is the problem then you will have minimal chance of getting pregnant. I would see your PCP or fertility doctor. They can then determine if you are ovulating. You may be fertile, but not ovulating could be a major issue. ...Read more
