Spotting On Lutera
No problem: If the spotting is occurring during the time you'd otherwise expect a "period", it's nothing to worry about--for many women who've been on the pill for awhile, periods can get lighter and lighter. This is a good effect, not a problem. Brown spotting just means the bleeding is lighter. ...Read more
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
Early light period or spotting on birth control. I just started taking birth control lo lowestrin this month. Spotting for 6 days instead of period ?
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
"surgical abortion on july 24 started taking birth control on july 28 then i took Plan B on august 2nd. Now on sugar pill little brown spoting normal?
Maybe: The real issue here is that you do not want to be pregnant and are not making good choices about your contraception. It is unlikely that you would have gotten pregnant again so soon after an abortion but if you really don't want to get pregnant you need much better birth control! my advice would be to get started on a reversible long acting contraceptive like the shot, and iud or implant. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Ovulated&had sex 5 days ago.Had brown discharge like spotting on day4&now have pink spotting on day 5.Started BC 15 days ago.implantation/breakthrough?
I switched from birth control pills to mirena (levonorgestrel) on may 1st. Took last pill on 2nd..Period on 5th to 11, spotting ever since. Is this normal?
Not likely: Iud's are one of the most effective forms of birth control. Irregular or absent periods are an expected side effect. Failure rates are 1%. Anytime you suspect pregnancy take a home pregnancy test. They are cheap, reliable and available at any pharmacy. If your test is positive you should see your doctor urgently because of the risk of tubal pregnancy (ectopic pregnancy). ...Read more
Stopping continuous birth control pills for period.. Brown discharge and spotting on week off? Normal?
I started my period spotting on Tuesday and medium flow on Wednesday then it stopped on Thursday. I am a 41 and on birth control pills?
Start bc 7mo ago. 1st 3mo/spotting. No spotting following. Missed period pack6. Ending pack7 Sunday, started spotting yesterday? Always taking on time
BC hormone adjustmnt: Most women find that their menses are lighter with bc, both pills and Depo, and your experience of spotting and then skipping a period is not uncommon. Since you started spotting yesterday, you may experience a more "normal period" this month, but it may still be only spotting for a few days. Keep taking your pills on schedule, and you should be fine regarding contraceptive effectiveness. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Started my cycle 4/2. Got birth control pills on 4/10/14 & only took one pill on 4/11/14. Unprotected sex 4/12. Bleeding today 4/18. Am i pregnant?
Can't know: You may be bleeding from altering your hormonal balance with the one day you took a birth control pill or if the bleeding is light and only lasts one day you might have periovulatory bleeding. However, you were not adequately protected against getting pregnant. Consider a pregnancy test early next week or wait 1 to 2 weeks and get an over-the-counter pregnancy test. www.askyourgynecologist.org. ...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
