Period Starting Week Early On Tri Sprintec
Started birth control week before period was supposed start. Unprotected sex on 5th day after starting birth control. need morning after pill?
BCP: They are generally effective for sure after you have completed one pack and are probably effective after you have been on it 1-2 weeks. You should take the pills at the same time everyday, usually in the morning but that does't matter. The reason to do this is to prevent breakthrough bleeding. So, yes do the morning after pill if you do not want the possibility of pregnancy. ...Read more

Last month i lost an active birth control pill. Took the next days pill instead. Finished pack and got period a day early now spotting a week early.?
Should be ok: Missing one pill and cutting short your month one day should not be a problem. May take a month or two to get back to "normal" for you. If concerned call your gyn doc and ask about the situation. ...Read more
Trinessa (norgestimate and ethinyl estradiol) for 4 years. Missed 2 pills 2nd week, took next day, but spotting since then (2 weeks now). Taking new pack now instead of placebo week. Prg?
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

Very light brownish spotting 6 days before period. On birth control pills. Havent missed one. Start period this sunday. What is the spotting?
BTB: Did you miss any pills or take them late? Have you been on other medicines, especially antibiotics? Have you been sick, nausea or diarrhea? Do you have a vaginal infection? Lots of things, or nothing, can lead to irregular bleeding on the birth control pill. Usually the next cycle will be better and pregnancy is unlikely, but condoms are always a good idea. ...Read more
I switched from Portia birth control to junel fe 1/20. The second week on junel was period-like. Now no period on placebo week. Pregnant?
Probably not: The change in pills can throw your period off. The junel is very low dose and therefore causes periods to be very light -sometimes just spotting. If you keep taking them , the breakthru bleeding should get better. If you are still worried about pregnancy, do a pregnancy test and trust the results. ...Read more
Overweight. Pcos. Started yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol). Got first period. Still cramping and brown spotting a week later. Missed a pill. Not pregnant. Sex burns, hurts?
See a Doctor: Please discuss this issue of sex causing burning sensation to your doctor. You will need to be checked for vaginal infections like bacterial vaginosis. Some women who have prolonged bleeding days and therefore use a lot of tampons will have dryness and sex may hurt. Stop your tampons and use sanitary napkins for a few cycles to see if it helps. Also, treating an infection will also help. Good Luc ...Read more
Been on bc pill for 3 years. Missed period week on placebo. Now starting active pill and get period. Normal? Lots brown mucus and cramping
Spotting a week before my period and into my period week. Sexually active. On birth control. Took HPT on day period was supposed to come- negative?
Repeat test: You may wish to repeat the test in 4-5 days, unless you get a period by then. Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about 2-3 weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. If the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more
Taking Ocella (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) since Feb. Got period last week. Missed Saturday pill before starting a new pack. Used condom as backup-broke yesterday. Uneasy. Plan B?
Not necessary : If you always start your new pack on a Sunday then the last pill in the pack (Saturday) is a placebo pill, meaning it has no medication. Missing the last placebo pill will not decrease the contraception effectiveness as long as you start the new pack on time. Plan B is not needed during this pack if you don't miss any of the active pills. ...Read more
On birth control pill yasmin started having clear stringy discharge third day of placebo pill week. Am I ovulating? Waiting for my period to come...
On Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) pill skipped period but got period 2weeks later on white pills. Why?
Missed pills?: Bleeding usually occurs when the hormonal levels drop. Theoretically, if you take the pills at the same time everyday and never miss a pill, your hormone levels should stay the same and so you should not bleed. But in reality, there is a standard distribution of people in the population for whom 'normal' does not apply and there is variability. ...Read more
Taking ortho tri cyclen (ethinyl estradiol and norgestimate) lo. Last month missed 3 pills, had withdrawal for 3weeks. This month I have light bleeding still on last week. Is this normal?
Yes: If you miss pills you can expect your period to be abnormal while you get back on track. Keep taking your pills and use a back-up method of contraception while they get back to normal. Many of my patients set an alarm in their phone to help them remember. Perhaps this would work for you. Hope this helps. ...Read more
