ortho-tri-cyclen

I just recently started taking a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ortho</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tri</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyclen</span> and I was wondering if starting birth control could cause your period to be delayed?
I am experiencing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breakthrough</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bleeding</span> on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ortho</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tri</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyclen</span>, between days 11 and 14 in my BC pack. The doctor syas it happens and it is only annoying but I really would like to not have to endure three or four days of breakthrough bleeding or spotting every month. It is messy and not very pleasant during inter course. What other pill combination would lessen this? I am open to a type and dose that will stop this.
This is my first month on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ortho</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tri</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyclen</span> lo. planned parenthood told me that I should get my period when I am taking the green "sugar pills" at the end of the pack, right before I start a new pack of pills. But I am on my period on the last few dark blue pills, before the green pills. I take the pill at the same time every day and I don't skip...is everything ok?
I started taking birth control about a year ago. I was on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ortho</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tri</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyclen</span> and it wasn't working to get my periods regular, so my doctor switched me to Estrostep about eight months ago and after the first month or so on that, my period became normal again and all has been well. Until this month that is. I was supposed to get my period this coming Wednesday (9/12/07) but I started spotting last Wednesday (9/5/07).
i recently switched from yaz birth control to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ortho</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tri</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyclen</span> lo and on about my 16th day of the new pill i started to bleed pretty heavy.. this is about 2 weeks before i should of gotten my period. and its been about 8 days now, im still bleeding, and it doesnt seem like it's going to stop anytime soon. is this just because i switched pills? and did i get my period early? or is this just breakthrough bleeding?
I recently started taking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ortho</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tri</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyclen</span>. I am on my second pack of pills. Everything seemed normal while taking the first pack. I started the second pack the Sunday after starting my period. I had a full period like always, but ever since (going on 2 weeks now) I have continued to spot. I really don't know if I should just stop taking the pills or continue taking them until this packet is gone. Please advise me on what I should do. Is this normal? should I continue taking them?

I am on the 28 day dose of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ortho</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tri</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyclen</span> Lo...I recently had a UTI so I was on antibiotics for three days. We used condoms as a backup method for 7 days after I finished my antibiotic. I was fine and had no spotting during that time. We had sex over the weekend though with no backup, just the pill, and now I am experiencing breakthrough bleeding. I basically feel like I have my period, but it's a week early. I haven't missed any pills and always take them at the same time every morning...
ive been on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ortho</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tri</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyclen</span> for 11 months and have had no problems until 1 week before my period i had very light pink discharge and it only happend 3 times in the evening and the next morning.... and only when i went to the restroom it was on the tp....could this be breakthrough bleeding after taking the pill this long....or implantation bleeding??....please help very worried....
At one point I had to take two pills at one time. Before Yasmin, I was on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ortho</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tri</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyclen</span> which made me bleed even more than Yasmin when I took the placebo pills. On Yasmin, I've noticed that I get more crampy when I have my period. Also, sometimes I feel nauseous. But other than that no other side effects.
my doctor switched me from <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ortho</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tri</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyclen</span> to marvelon because i was having break through bleeding. last month was the first month i was on marvelon and so far i had break through bleeding when i was on my third week and my period was supposed to be last week and it was extremely light (which is abnormal).i couldnt tell if i was still break through bleeding or actually on my period. the bleeding stopped yesterday and i started my pill today.
) last month and all was well up until the last week when I started spotting. Well because of my insurance I had to switch to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ortho</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tri</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyclen</span> this month so i decided to skip the brown placebo pills so i could "skip" my period, but on exactly Day 1 of ortho tri cyclen it made me start my period Full on! I am on Day 3 and still have my period...... ugh!!!
She said to expect some <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breakthrough</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bleeding</span> because I haven't been on bcp's in a long time. I was on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ortho</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tri</span> cyclen about 3 yrs ago with no problems. bleeding completely stopped after taking the bcp for 2 days/3 times a day. I then proceeded to finish out the pack 1 pill a day. About a day or 2 after the bleeding stopped, I started to spot again. Doc said to expect breakthrough bleeding. After about 2 weeks it got heavier and heavier to the point of a moderate to heavy period.
When it was time for my 4th I switched to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ortho</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tri</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyclen</span> for about a week then discontinued bc all together. A week later I bleed for 6 days. That was 3 weeks ago and I’m having horrible pregnacy symptoms. Is it possible I may have conceived?
She said to expect some <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breakthrough</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bleeding</span> because I haven't been on birth control pills for a very long time. I was on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ortho</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tri</span> cyclen about 3 years ago with no problems. bleeding completely stopped after taking the Femcon for 2 days/3 times a day. I then proceeded to finish out the pack 1 pill a day. About a day or 2 after the bleeding stopped, I started to spot again. Doc said to expect breakthrough bleeding so I didn't worry about it.
I was off of birth control for a few months, and got tri-Nessa when I went back on it (generic for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ortho</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tri</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyclen</span>). I don't always experience <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bleeding</span> with penetration, in fact that itself is pretty rare. With clitoral orgasm, I bleed. Hopefully this isn't "too much information", but yesterday, all I did was THINK about sex, get excited--no orgasm, no stimulation of any kind, and I'm bleeding a few hours later.
I have been on the pill for years now. I am currently on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ortho</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tri</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyclen</span>-lo and I am thinking about switching to Seasonique so I won't get 12 periods a year. I want to be on a pill that won't make me gain weight or give me major acne. Any tips/help.
I started birth control (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ortho</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tri</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyclen</span> lo) august 2 and I didnt take them at the same time each day. I had unprotected sex august 11 and I stopped taking my pill all together august 13. Today on august 17 i woke up bleeding. I am not suppose to get my period until around august 26th. Could I get pregnant and what is this bleeding from?
I've been on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ortho</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tri</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyclen</span> lo for two months and hate it. I plan on switching to a monophasic. In mid-late august I'm supposed to be taking a trip to MI and also somtime right in the same window supposed to get my period. I am just m starting my second week of another tri cyclen pack. I'm wondering if I should get an extra pack of the tri cyclen and just double the weeks.
i found out after being on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ortho</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tri</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyclen</span> lo for 2 years that i had a bad gallbladder and it could be due to the bc pills... best thing to do is go to the pharmacy and ask for the leaflet they keep in the boxes of pills..
I don't think you can do it without at least some spotting. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ortho</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tri</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyclen</span> lo is a triphasic pill, which means that each week is a different dose. The bleeding on the pill is caused by withdrawal from the hormones, so even if you start a new pack with no break, you'll be lowering your dose and will probably bleed. In the future, if you want to be able to skip periods at will, get on on monophasic pill, which has only one dose and therefore allows you to skip periods by starting a new pack.

After 5 years on it, she switched from <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ortho</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tri</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyclen</span> Lo to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ortho</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tri</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyclen</span> in May. (She had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breakthrough</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bleeding</span>, no serious side effects.) When she switched, she hasn't found me attractive and is severely questioning whether we're meant to be together. There are moments where she shows she's still interested, and she describes herself as having mixed emotions. (Mood swings maybe?
For 8 years I took ortho-tri-cyclen, and was then switched to Femodette, a low-dose monophasic UK pill with 20 mcg of ehinylestradiol and 75 mcg of gestodene. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ortho</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tri</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyclen</span> is not available in Europe. I requested that my GP prescribe a new pill anyway, as towards the end of 8 yrs on ortho-tri-cyclen I was experiencing moderate mood swings with frequency. I have 2 concerns: (a) Is my new pill safe?

I had my lap surgery in August 09, and have been on continuous BC since October 09 and my period (or breakthrough bleeding) hasn't stopped since I switched over - now going on 7 months! Previously I was taking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ortho</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tri</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyclen</span> Lo and since October I've tried <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ortho</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyclen</span>, Necon 1/35 (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ortho</span>-Novum), Apri (Desogen), and now Zovia (Demulen). Sorry if this has been asked before, but does anyone who has tried taking continuous BC to stop their period have any insights on how long it took?
