Brown spotting recently, been on pill for 3 years, changed brands and time I take the pill the last week. Regular sexual intercourse. What do I do?

Brown spotting recently, been on pill for 3 years, changed brands and time I take the pill the last week. Regular sexual intercourse. What do I do?

Cycle irregularity: It's more likely that the brown spotting is just from the change in your meds and timing of your pills. If you haven't missed any pills- I would wait to see if you get your next cycle and if not then do a pregnancy test. The pills even if they are supposed to be same, may be slightly different in strength and it's more likely to be secondary to the change than pregnancy. Good luck. ...Read more

I had intercourse last night with the same parter of 5 years! I'm on the pill Cerazette and when I wiped this morning there was spotting! Is this ok?

Probably ok: Its common to occasionally have some bleeding after intercourse. It usually doesn't mean something terrible is wrong. If you are taking the pill correctly, you should have a normal period during the last week of your pill pack just the same as always. If your symptoms persist or you develop itching or a bad odor, you should see your Gyn. Best wishes! ...Read more

I took Plan B a week ago an hour after sex and today I have found brownish spotting and some blood, is this normal? Was the pill effective?

I took Plan B a week ago an hour after sex and today I have found brownish spotting and some blood, is this normal? Was the pill effective?

Plan B: Yes, this sounds normal. But you failed to tell us where in your cycle you were when you were sexual. You did not tell us when you ovulate. You did not tell us if this spotting is happening on a day you expect your period to start. You failed to also mention why you are not on birth control and trying to prevent pregnancy.

Every sexually active female must know these simple and basic facts. ...Read more

Started the pill, waited 7 days then had unprotected sex 3 days in a row. Now I'm spotting and cramping. What cant this be?

Not enough time!: You should take BC pills for at least a month (two to be really safe) This spotting may be implantation bleeding. You can get OTC Pregnancy test and test in about two weeks after that spotting
Good Luck

Pregnancy: getting pregnant requires vaginal sex. Oral sex cannot make anyone pregnant. If you never had vaginal sex, it is highly unlikely that you are pregnant. If in doubt, there are several pregnancy tests available at the pharmacies. Please check. ...Read more

If I took a plan B pill 12 hrs after sex and haven't had spotting/side effects does this mean sperm didn't get inside me? (4 days following the pill)

If I took a plan B pill 12 hrs after sex and haven't had spotting/side effects does this mean sperm didn't get inside me? (4 days following the pill)

No: plan B is only 59 - 94% effective at preventing pregnancies. This can be affected by the woman's weight, where u r in your menstrual cycle, and if u have unprotected sex afterwards. I don't think there is a way by symptoms to tell if it worked (until u start 2 get symptoms of pregnancy, that is). The safest thing 2 do is 2 use a condom every single time and be on a 2nd form of BC such as the pill ...Read more

Vaginal discharge: You should see your Gynecologist for a vaginal exam. It sounds like you have some bleeding, but other dischage could look the same. Your doctor will want to check for vaginal tears as well as infections that may be irritating. ...Read more

Hi. I took plan B 30 min after unprotected sex. I was due for my period 2 days after the unprotected sex. A day after taking the pill I have spotting?

Expected: Taking Plan B within 24 hours after unprotected intercourse is 95% effective but taking it at any time during your cycle will cause disruption of the normal cycle. Now is the time to consider starting a more reliable method of contraception and using condoms every time to decrease the risk of STDs. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Girl starts pill. Today is 2nd day she can"have sex" Had sex with condom 5 days ago, and without condom today. 4 hrs after sex, there is spotting. Why?

Unprotected sex: Sexual intercourse can cause spotting, and as long as it is just spotting and there is no pain, it should resolve in 1-2 days. If it does not resolve, gets worse or if you develop other symptoms you should be evaluated. Having unprotected sexual intercourse significantly increases the risk of contracting sexually transmitted diseases (STD). The best protection for STDs is consistent condom use. ...Read more

I had a surg. Abortion 7 weeks ago I have been on the pill and having spotting I had unprotected sex 2 weeks ago the preg, test + is it just hormones?

I had a surg. Abortion 7 weeks ago I have been on the pill and having spotting I had unprotected sex 2 weeks ago the preg, test + is it just hormones?

Unsure: A positive pregnancy test should be assumed to mean you are pregnant. It would be important to know that the tissue removed when you had the abortion was normal and that your pregnancy test had returned to negative after the abortion. It is possible that there could still be pregnancy tissue remaining fro the prior pregnancy and that could be a big problem. To be safe, see your doctor. ...Read more

More Info: When you mess with your pills you can have irregular bleeding. If you just missed your pill, you are not pregnant. Remember to double up your pill. It is important to take your pills daily. It is OK to take your active pills to avoid a period. It is healthy. Missing 1 pill in these instances will make you spot or bleed but not pregnant. Good Luck! ...Read more

Check a test: If you think you might be pregnant check then check a home pregnancy test. They are cheap, reliable and available at any pharmacy. Always use over the counter Plan B if ontercourse was within 72 hours to decrease the risk of unplanned pregnancy. See you doc for birth control if preg test is negative. ...Read more

The 2nd to last day of my period, I took next choice one dose 1 hour after sex (no ejaculation). Been on the pill for a month. Spotting for 2wks now. Normal?

The 2nd to last day of my period, I took next choice one dose 1 hour after sex (no ejaculation). Been on the pill for a month. Spotting for 2wks now. Normal?

Spotting not normal: However, it is fairly common and unlikely to be a problem. First, you ovulate 2 weeks prior to your period starting. Egg had almost certainly passed. If you were on pills a month, pregnancy very unlikely. Perhaps next choice was a bit excessive. You are taking charge responcibly. Relax, pat yourself on back, have a good life. ...Read more

Very common: Unscheduled bleeding also called breakthrough bleeding is very common on birth control. It is not dangerous. It is simply a side effect of most birth control methods. If it continues then see your doctor for evaluation and a discussion of alternative methods. ...Read more

Low possibility: To get pregnant, you must ovulate. Ovulation occurs 14 days before your period. So depending on how often your period comes will determine if you can be pregnant. Day 1 is the first day of your full flow. If you have 28 day cycles then having sex around day 14 will put you at risk of pregnancy. Being on birth control suppresses ovulation so you are most likely not pregnant. ...Read more
