Pregnancy: Ovulation occurs after your period. With a short cycle, say 21 days long, ovulation would occur on day 7. So from your account pregnancy is unlikely. You should, however, be using some form of birth control if you are sexually active and don't wish to get pregnant. ...Read more

I got my period early lasted two days stopped now light spotting? This has never happened before but have always had short periods.

Sounds ok: It is pretty normal to have a period come a little early or a little late from time to time. It is generally a good thing to have short light periods. Much better than the alternative. IF you would like more cycle control or if you are sexually active consider starting birth control ...Read more

I have been taking birth control for about 2 months and the first month was fine but 2 weeks ago i got my period early and still have it is this norma?

Shouldn't happen: It shouldnt happen. It is possible that your body is still 'adjusting' to the new birth control pill, and you may wait for another month to see if this stabilizes, but if it persists - this pill may not be best for you, and you may need to try a different pill. ...Read more

I am on birth control and I got my period early and its bright red. Should I be worried?

I am on birth control and I got my period early and its bright red. Should I be worried?

Probably normal: As long as this is a transient, as opposed to recurrent, occurrence (more than 5 cycles). This can especially become an issue with ocp (oral contraceptive pill) transitioning. If symptoms persist and/or worsen, it would be wise to undergo a work up. Depending on your age, history and stage of reproductive life, the differential diagnosis is vast. ...Read more

I missed the last 5 bc pills in my pack. I got my period early & waited 7days to start new pack. I had sex the 1st day of new pack. Was I protected?

I missed the last 5 bc pills in my pack. I got my period early & waited 7days to start new pack. I had sex the 1st day of new pack. Was I protected?

Maybe: Maybe is the best answer as that early in your cycle re-starting the pill is unlikely to result in an ovulation. However, when you miss pills for 5 days you put yourself at risk for a "rogue" ovulation and subsequent "surprise" pregnancy. Take your pills everyday to avoid much consternation about protection or not. ...Read more

I had sex  august 16 that day I was ovulating and I took the Plan B bill the next day. I got my period  early now i'm getting brown discharge . Why?

Plan B worked: Plan b prevents implantation of a potentially fertilized egg by causing an early period. This means causing your body to thin the walls of the uterus to prevent a pregnancy from "taking." following that it is normal to have an irregular period while your hormones getting back to "normal" again. All of that said : the Plan B package worked. You should check a pregnancy test at 3-4 weeks. ...Read more

I've been on the same birth control for over a year, but this month it has made me nauseous, given me many headaches, and I got my period early. Why?

Hormones: It sounds like you have some issues with hormones this month. Maybe you missed a pill or two? If you didn't miss any pills, then likely this change is due to changes in your body's hormones. I would give it another month, and if these symptoms continue, consider seeing doctor for a different birth control Rx. Not every pill is the same for every woman. ...Read more

STD? Gonorrhea?: The timing is very quick for an STD problem, but some STDs could cause abdominal pain and vaginal bleeding after only 3 days, especially gonorrhea. See a doctor ASAP; if pain is severe or if you have fever, do it today for sure, even if it means a visit to an urgent care clinic or hospital emergency department. Good luck! ...Read more

Do : Do not delay the new pack. Start the next active pill after the last placebo pill from the previous pack. If after 3 months on the pill your bleeding continues to be irregular, see your doctor for a possible change in regimen, you likely need a pill with a different hormonal make-up. All the best. ...Read more
