I Am On Birth Control And My Period Is Early
I am on birth control & got my period a week early & have had it for 9 days. It is very heavy. Is there a chance I'm having a miscarriage?

Babies who are only moderately premature usually ...Read more

If you have a primary doctor, they might call in an RX of an appropriate hormone to delay your period.. Or, you could use the Health Tap app to get a virtual consult with a HealthTap physician. and explain the situation to him or her. BTW, congrats! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Menstrual : Menstrual changes, such as what you described in your post, are fairly common in women at any point in their reproductive years. If you missed any pills, or were late taking them, this could also be a possibility. Also consider taking a pregnancy test even though the odds of this are less than 1% if you take your pills as directed. Other causes of abnormal periods are increased stress/anxiety, extreme weight fluctuations, hormonal imbalances (including thyroid disorders). If the bleeding persists, or your cycles do not normalize over the next three packs of pills contact your doctor. Take care. ...Read more
I started my period a little over a week early. I am on birth control and do not miss a pill. Usually I cramp, but this time I didn't. What's wrong?
Probably nothing: This is not a period but what we call breakthrough bleeding. Your period on the pill should come predictably at the end of your pack. This can occur randomly, or if you are inconsistent taking your pills, or may be triggered by other medications like antibiotics. Effectiveness may be reduced so use backup contraception. ...Read more
