Breakthrough bleed: Sounds like breakthrough bleeding which occurs when you have bleeding at unscheduled times while on the pill. Often things get back to normal the next cycle.

I take Trinessa (norgestimate and ethinyl estradiol) & Celexa. Are they known to cause side effects when taken together? I've been having severe nausea & morning sickness since day one.
Unsure: Either one can cause nausea. Did you start them at the same time? Some women get nausea the first month on oral contraceptives. Some people also get nausea initially on celexa. Since you describe it as morning sickness, I would lean toward the trinessa (norgestimate and ethinyl estradiol) as the cause. ...Read more
Does being on orthocyclen (ethinyl estradiol and norgestimate) increase my prolactin and cortisol?
Can those elevated levels go back to normal all on thier own,
with no meds?
Well, make sure: You are in contact with an endocrinologist. There are workups that need to be done. It's not from the ocp though. F/u with your doc. Cortisol fluctuates so it matters when it was drawn and how, prolactin, if elevated, needs to be discussed with ur doc. I assume they drew them for a reason. Good luc. ...Read more
I had to changed my bcp to orthocyclen (ethinyl estradiol and norgestimate) for a month.However,I'm going back to my regular pill(LoLoestrinFe)next month. It won't be a problem?
Didn't use condom for first part, then put one on and pulled out. I'm on orthocyclen (ethinyl estradiol and norgestimate) too I take it consistently. Am I most likely okay as far as preg?
Probably: Only because you are taking your orthocyclen (ethinyl estradiol and norgestimate) regularly can I say probably. However, be aware that during the early portion of sex your partner does produce small amounts of semen (called pre cum) that has about 20 million sperm/drop. The condom should be used the entire sex act. Partial condom use also wouldn't prevent an STD. ...Read more
