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

I started my period a week early and it only lasted for 3 days usually when I get my period it lasted 7 days can I be pregnant?

Hard to guess: It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. An Ob-Gyn doctor can evaluate any persistent or worrisome symptoms. ...Read more

I started my period a week early with no cramps, I usually get really bad cramps.. does that mean anything?

I started my period a week early with no cramps, I usually get really bad cramps.. does that mean anything?

Hopefully: this is the beginning of less painful periods. A woman's body changes throughout her life and it is common for the cramps associated with a period to be worse during teen years. At least this period is a little easier to tolerate and hopefully it is a sign of decreased cramping with future periods. ...Read more

Probably ok: The earliness of the period sounds like faultry ovulation this month. Therefore the bleeding is also atypical. Appreciate that it is light this month and probably expect the next period in 5 weeks ...Read more

I've been on birth control for many years and today I started my period a week early. This has never happened before. Is there something I should be c?

OCP's: Not necessarily. Could be that the pill was taken a little later one day that normal? Alternatively, could be having breakthrough bleeding. Sometimes the lining becomes so very thin that it may break away and cause brealth rough bleeding, which is seen as brown staining followed by a more regular flow. ...Read more

Possible pregnancy: If a period comes at the wrong time and is lighter than usual then pregnancy is possible, so check a pregnancy test. Irregular bleeding can also occur if the hormones are off, and most of the time the cycle will go back to normal. So if the pregnancy test is negative it's fine to see what happens next month. ...Read more
