Breakthrough bleed: Breakthrough bleeding (bleeding at the wrong time) is very common on birth control. It happens in about 1/3 of users. Its no big deal and usually self corrects over time. If you are not satisfied or it continues to happen then consider using a different birth control method. It is a common side effect and does not mean something is wrong or that the pill is not working. ...Read more

How long is it okay to spot bleed after a missed birth control pill? I missed my birth control pill for 3 days in a row, I have went back to taking it every day at the same time but I am still bleeding vaginally and have been for 5 days.

How long is it okay to spot bleed after a missed birth control pill? I missed my birth control pill for 3 days in a row, I have went back to taking it every day at the same time but I am still bleeding vaginally and have been for 5 days.

You : You may bleed or spot for the rest of the pack. Once you miss three pills, you start to bleed from withdrawing the hormone, and starting the pills again will not reverse this effect. Continue to take the pills every day and also use a back up method of contraception. Hopefully after your period this cycle, you will stop spotting, given you take the pills as directed. Have you considered the nuvaring? It is a great alternative for women who often forget to take their pills. Ask your doctor for more information. ...Read more

Are white spots on your skin from sun exposure and birth control harmful?

Are white spots on your skin from sun exposure and birth control harmful?

Don't know : I cannot think of any particular white spots caused by birth control pills or sun exposure. Fungal infection spots don't tan and stay lighter than the surrounding skin, but they are not "benign" and need to be treated. You need to be seen to make sure there is nothing going on that needs to be treated. ...Read more

Can changing my birth control pill make my nipples sore a month later? Could it be stress?

Can changing my birth control pill make my nipples sore a month later? Could it be stress?

Yes: I doubt stress will cause your nipples to be sore, although, stress can be a good masquerader, so if nothing else is found to blame, you may as well do it for stress.
Changing birth control pills can definitely cause sore nipples as there's a hormonal change that nipples will be accommodating to and soreness can be a result of it. ...Read more

A : A few things could be going on.

First of all, if she is using the birth control pill correctly (taking a pill at the same time every day without missing one) then she has a less than 2% chance of being pregnant. Add condoms and the risk of pregnancy is even lower!

More than likely, her missed period is from the pill itself. Many low estrogen formulations (like loestrin) can cause very light or even missed periods. Some women will choose a low-estrogen pill just for that side effect! If she continues to have irregular periods and finds it worrisome, she can talk to her doctor about switching to a different pill.

If she has missed pills and thinks she might be pregnant, a home pregnancy test will be 97% accurate 1-2 weeks after the missed/light period. A doctor's urine test would be able to detect a pregnancy test now. Good luck! ...Read more
