Hello WhatsUpDoc, I just wanted to say that I myself am going through tje same thing. Well I do not take <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>birth</span> c<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>trol <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pill</span>s. It's driving me crazy. I hope someone has an answer for us.
I was on Ortho Tri-Cyclen Lo for 7 months and bled all of the time during <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>periods</span>, in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>between</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>periods</span>, etc. once, I bled for 15 days. I ended up changing to Yasmin since the Lo was not enough hormones for me.
My gyno doctor just keeps changing my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>birth</span> c<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>trol <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pill</span>s. I'm very frustrated at this point. Is this something that you experienced?
Irregular bleeding, heavy bleeding, or fewer and lighter periods, increased spotting and light bleeding <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>between</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>periods</span> are few of the common side effects of any <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>birth</span> c<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>trol method. These side effects are more common in the first few months of starting OC pills. If the bleeding is severe or persistent seeking the opinion of a gynecologist will be helpful. Do keep me posted. Best of luck and regards!
As you will see below my period comes every month, but twice every other month. I have never experience this on other <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>birth</span> c<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>trol <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pill</span>s (period were once a month) 2/5 to 2/10 3/2 to 3/5 3/9 to 3/12 4/6 to 4/9 5/5 to 5/8 5/24 to 5/28 6/1 to 6/6 7/1 to 7/6 My concern is I had unprotected sex with boyfriend yesterday and this morning I had a lot of discharge, not smelly, yet thick and stretchy. We always have unprotected sex, he loves cumming inside.
Started on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>birth</span> c<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>trol <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pill</span>s 5 months ago simply to try and regulate my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>periods</span> and lessen the severity of bleeding. First I was on Levlen which worked fine for about 3 months, even managed to skip a period successfully. Then started to get breakthrough bleeding half way through cycle which was continuous for 3 weeks but some days worse than others. Went back to GP who changed me to Brevicon which is a stronger pill.
If you have health insurance in the states, you can get <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>birth</span> c<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>trol <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pill</span>s for free. If you don't, try Planned Parenthood as you may be able to get low-cost or free birth control pills there. However, to answer your other question: there are indeed many different types of birth control. There are various types of pills, so if one doesn't work (by this, I mean you experience unwanted side effects), you may consider a different type.
So i am now 34 weeks (monday) and am thinking about <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>birth</span> c<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>trol methods... ive done a bit of research but would like yalls opinions and experiences. I am going to be breast feeding so i know im limited to bc options... i cant use condoms they hurt me really bad (i think im illergic or somethin). I got prego on the pill so i am so not doing that, what are other forms a breast feeding momma can use? how effective is it? did u get pregnant on it? how long does it last? side effects?
Well I have been on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>birth</span> c<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>trol <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pill</span>s since July 2007 and yes my periods are alot shorter then what they use to be. However, when I'm on the non-active pill week my period comes on the 6th white pill and normally lasts about 4 days. My last 2 periods have been a bit odd though. My period always starts on a Saturday, but last month it was very ligh bleeding on day 1 (which isn't normal) and it lasted a day longer.
I am 23 years old and since the middle of January I have been experiencing irregular spotting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>between</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>periods</span>. I am on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>birth</span> c<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>trol <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pill</span>s which I take every day at the same time. My spotting ranges from barely noticable when i wipe to period like. I only have the slighted bit of cramping with it, and about a week ago I noticed that when I used a tampon only one side is saturated with blood.
Hello, Such spotting can be due to ovarian problems, hormonal imbalance, stress, anxiety, crashed dieting, use of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>birth</span> c<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>trol <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pill</span>s, change in environment, excessive exercise etc. Heavy bleeding can be due to can be due to hormonal imbalance, fibroids and polyps (non cancerous growth) in the uterus, endometriosis (deposits of the inner lining of the uterus in the pelvic cavity) or malignancies etc.
No, you should continue with the placebo <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pill</span>s. spotting, and bleed<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>g in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>between</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>periods</span> is possible while on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pill</span>s. It may start in the first cycle or may occur after prolonged use. With spotting in between periods, the possibility of pregnancy remains, especially in cases where there is a history of missed pills. Even if you have not missed the pills, take a pregnancy test if you miss your next periods. Also please inform your gynecologist about this spotting.
Please discuss this with your doctor. I am assuming you are not on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>birth</span> c<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>trol <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pill</span>s, if you are, are you taking them at the same time each day? Also, make sure that your doctor has checked your thyroid levels because low levels can sometimes cause spotting.
You might need to switch <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pill</span>s. If this is your first cycle- you should use a back up <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>birth</span> c<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>trol as well. They say you should do that for the first three cycles too. Good luck!!
Sometimes with the pill you can have bleed<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>g <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>between</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>periods</span> all of the sudden. and sometimes rougher sex can make you bleed a little, too. It could be either one, I wouldn't worry too much.
I am NOT PREGNANT, I AM NOT on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>birth</span> C<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>TROL <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pill</span>S EITHER. I have less than moderate sex life with only one partner throughout. Any help will be useful, any guidelines will be greatly appreciated.
Which is a non-cancerous growth in the uterus. It causes bleed<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>g in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>between</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>periods</span> and usually heavy bleed<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>g when on your period. If it causes no pain and not intense bleeding they will leave it. I had huge losses of blood with mine and eventually had a hysterectomy. See your Dr.
So if you have such side effects, then please stop taking the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>birth</span> c<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>trol <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pill</span>s and consult your gynecologist. I hope it helps. Take care and please do keep me posted if you have any additional doubts. Kind regards.
She said that it sounds like a hormonal problem, which means I don't have a high enough dosage in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>birth</span> c<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>trol <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pill</span>s. She said if it happens next month as well, I can come in for new <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pill</span>s, but at this point she wouldn't be worried.
