Can be normal: First make sure that you are not pregnant. This can be normal for the first 2 or 3 cycles until your hormones start to work again. I would see your doctor if your menses do not regulate after 3 months. ...Read more

Probably nothing: The type of discharge described is quite non-specific. It could be related to residual menstrual flow. If this is a consistent symptom, follow up with ob/gyn is recommended. ...Read more

Yes,: When you miss pills especially 2days in a row there is a chance of pregnancy if you are sexually active . Use condoms as a back up measure. Also you need to be on the bcp at least 2 weeks to be protected. Also bcp's do not protect against std's. So use condoms all the time to protect yourself. If you miss your period do a pregnancy test. ...Read more

I have been taking the birth control for two months straight ( no withdrawal bleeding in between). I already talked to my doctor about doing this, and?

What is: your question? It is not unusual for this to happen in one cycle but two cycles without withdrawal bleeding indicates that the pills may be a bit too "strong" for you!
Speak with your GYN or Family Health Provider about this!
BTW RARELY a pregnancy can occur if conception occurs before you start the pill! Take an OTC Preg Test to be sure!!
Hope this helps!

BCP: Restart your pills on a new pack. In the future continue with the pack you are on even though you have some bleeding, just remember to use another form of protection when you have missed that many pills. Things should normalize over the next few months, if the don't see your doctor. ...Read more

What could be the reason of no withdrawal bleed after taking equivalent to ec, it's been just over 10 days?

Emergency Contracept: It sometimes takes two or three cycles after emergency contraceptive use to re establish a normal cycle, so i wouldn't be unduly concerned. Discuss this with your gynecologist, but he will probably tell you to give it a few more periods before he would want to do any diagnostic work up. ...Read more
