I'm 28 and have been lor: #dae8f4'>on the pill for about 5 years now. I've been taking <span style = 'background-co<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lo</span>r: #dae8f4'>ortho</span> Tri-Cyclen lo for some time now. Sometimes I will have light lor: #dae8f4'>spotting for a couple of days halfway between my periods. My doctor says it could mean I need a higher dose but it is fine for me to stay lor: #dae8f4'>on what I have now and just accept the lor: #dae8f4'>spotting if I prefer, since a higher dose may make me nauseous.

So, I get my period as scheduled and this mlor: #dae8f4'>onth, again, lor: #dae8f4'>one week after my period was over, I spotted. lor: #dae8f4'>only this time, the lor: #dae8f4'>spotting has not stopped. Now I am having brown lor: #dae8f4'>spotting for about lor: #dae8f4'>one week so far. What is going lor: #dae8f4'>on? Does anylor: #dae8f4'>one have any input?
Good Morning. I am lor: #dae8f4'>on <span style = 'background-co<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lo</span>r: #dae8f4'>ortho</span> Tri Cyclen bc. I normally have a pretty regular cycle. I had my normal period start lor: #dae8f4'>on Wednesday and last through Saturday. Totally normal, but then Saturday night I had sex with my llor: #dae8f4'>ong term boyfriend and I noticed about 20 minutes after I had some light red lor: #dae8f4'>spotting lor: #dae8f4'>only when I went to the bathroom.
I was lor: #dae8f4'>on <span style = 'background-co<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lo</span>r: #dae8f4'>ortho</span> Tri-Cyclen lo for 7 mlor: #dae8f4'>onths and bled all of the time during periods, in between periods, etc. lor: #dae8f4'>once, I bled for 15 days. I ended up changing to Yasmin since the lo was not enough hormlor: #dae8f4'>ones for me.
My last period started lor: #dae8f4'>on Oct 7th - I am lor: #dae8f4'>on <span style = 'background-co<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lo</span>r: #dae8f4'>ortho</span> Tri-Cyclen lo... and have been for YEARS. I had sex lor: #dae8f4'>on Oct 18th, and had a dark brown discharge from Oct 27 - Nov 3rd (week before my scheduled period). I assumed old blood. I was supposed to start my normal period lor: #dae8f4'>on Nov 4th - but it's now the 7th and no period. I have been very stressed regarding the clor: #dae8f4'>onstant lor: #dae8f4'>spotting last week and took a home pregnancy test yesterday and it came back negative.
Hello. Ok, here's my situatilor: #dae8f4'>on. I just started taking <span style = 'background-co<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lo</span>r: #dae8f4'>ortho</span> Tri-Cyclen lo again after a few mlor: #dae8f4'>onths. At the end of my cycle, like the day my period ended, my bf and I had unprotected sex and he pulled out. I was clor: #dae8f4'>oncerned anyway so I took Plan B about 36 hours after, and I also started the seclor: #dae8f4'>ond mlor: #dae8f4'>onth of birth clor: #dae8f4'>ontrol at pretty much the same time. I started lor: #dae8f4'>spotting like 2 weeks after very lightly for like 4 days. Was this my period?
I have gradually worked my way down from <span style = 'background-co<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lo</span>r: #dae8f4'>ortho</span> Tri-Cyclen to <span style = 'background-co<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lo</span>r: #dae8f4'>ortho</span>-Cyclen to Yasmin to Yaz (not that you have to do this, it's just the order in which they came out). Yasmin has much less hormlor: #dae8f4'>one than lor: #dae8f4'>ortho Tri-Cyclen or lor: #dae8f4'>ortho Cyclen, is just as effective, does not give you horrific mood swings, and you lor: #dae8f4'>only have a 2-3 day period because there are lor: #dae8f4'>only four placebo pills, which is better than the "no period at all" route if you have issues with lor: #dae8f4'>spotting.
For the past 7 mlor: #dae8f4'>onths, I have been taking <span style = 'background-co<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lo</span>r: #dae8f4'>ortho</span> Tri Cyclen lo.
