If I take over-the-counter estrogen pills for breakthrough bleeding while on Nexplanon will the effectiveness of the birth control be affected?
No OTC estrogen: There are no OTC estrogens. There are OTC meds that claim to estrogenic activity, but estrogen requires a prescription. Plan B, which OTC, is a progestin.

Varies: I really believe it is more of an individuals body chemistry response to an individual pill. Monophasic pills tend to cause less breakthrough bleeding, and a 30mcg Estradiol pill may give slightly greater endometrial stabilization to avoid breakthrough bleeding. It's really a matter of trial and error to find a birth control pill that doesn't cause any breakthrough bleeding or other side effects. ...Read more

Can switching from one birth control pill (higher hormone pill to lesser hormone pill) cause spotting? There was no day without pill while switching.
Yes: Higher hormone (estrogen) content birth control pills tend to cause thicker uterine lining while lower hormone pills cause less. So when switching from high to low, you have less "support" for thick lining which is then shed. In reality, any change in birth control pills can lead to spotting. Best to stick w/bcp for 3 months to allow for adjustment (if you can wait). Otherwise, chat w/your doc. ...Read more
