I switched from yaz to tri-sprintec this past month and I started spotting about a 8 or 9 days into it and havent stopped. Some days its just a little spot and other days it bleeds like my period. I have been doing this for 14 days now. If anyone knows what this is or has any thought it would be greatly appreciated. Im pretty sure Im not pregnant because if I have sex with my boyfriend he wears a condom and still pulls out even when Im on birth control.
I've been on tri sprintec for a while now. I skip the white pills and take them every 3rd month. I've felt pregnant before but this month has been really bad. Anyone else having issues? I want to stop taking it to see if af comes.
I have been taking Tri-Sprintec tablets for about 5 months once in the morning around 9:00 AM. Beforehand I had irregular periods which occurred every 3 months. So, I went on these tablets to regulate my period as well as for birth control because I have been having unprotected sex. I usually get my period the 4th week but usually lasts for only 3-4 days. Is that normal? I do not get the full week of my period.
I was on Amoxicillin last week taking it 3 times a day and I'm also on the birth control pill Tri-Sprintec. The doctor Pharmacist all told me that the Amoxicillin would cancel out the birth control, so my husband and I were using condoms for the week. Two days ago, we had unprotected sex and yesterday I started spotting. Today it's heavier than yesterday and I have back pain like I've started my period, but my period isn't supposed to start until September 23.
and barely anything comes out! .....I am on Tri-sprintec for birth control.....could this be my period., or could it be from the BC??
Hi! I really doubt that you are pregnant, given that you are using a regular method as well as Plan B. It is very common for Plan B to cause irregular bleeding, so I'll bet that is all there is to it. I ALWAYS recommend taking a pregnancy test though, so don't skip that! If you are consistent with your Yaz, you really shouldn't need the back up.
I take my birth control regularly (tri-sprintec). My last period was February 25. A little later than usual because of a last minute business trip to Vegas and I was extremely stressed out. I took a pill late (was suppose to take it at night but took it in the morning and then that's days pill I took at night to get me back on schedule) a 8 days later of taking the pill consistently my bf and I had unprotected sex. 5 days later I had forgotten to take my pill.
havent been on tri sprintec for a month and have also not started a period either, having horrible cramps and extremely gassy, and extremely light pink spotting thats thats only from wiping when i go to the restroom im not sure whats going on im also have alot of pressure and a dull pain on one side of my stomach in the lower area
Hello, Such continuous spotting/ bleeding can be due to menorrhagia. Causes of menorrhagia are Hypothyroidism, Endometrial proliferation or hyperplasia like ovarian tumor and polycystic ovarian disease,endometrial polyps and neoplasia,endometriosis,fibroids and uterine sarcomas. In my opinion you need to get your pelvic examination done from your gynecologist along with investigations like complete blood count,thyroid function tests,PAP smear and ultrasound uterus.
BUT he did put the condom on upside down, realized it was not right and then flipped it over and unrolled it. I began spotting light brown blood on the 25th of November and it continued into the weekend and got gradually darker. This past Sunday (29th) was my first placebo pill. Since taking the placebo pills, the brown discharge has gotten a little heavier and darker. I am not sure if this is a sign of my bleeding that is about to start or a sign of pregnancy.

I've been taking tri-sprintec birth control for almost a year now. The last time I was sexually active was on july 16 and my last period came two days after that and a condom was used. I decided to stop taking the birth control for good once I finished that last pack that I was on and I can't remember the exact day of my last pill when I got off, but I haven't had a period since. Lately, I've been having temporary pain (sting) in the vagina and my abdomen has been hurting.
I had sex several times in the last two weeks. I am on the pill Tri-sprintec, but I did miss a few pills at the beginning of this month. I haven't tested yet because I think it is still too early. What do you think?
ok...i'm 23 years old and not looking to have a child. i have been on tri sprintec birth control pill for about 4 months...current pack i'm on is my 4th pill pack. so far it has been great...no bad side effects...but now i'm freaking out a little. i'm on my week 2 pills and just experienced probably less than a teaspoon amount of blood when i wiped after going to the bathroom.
He said that since I'm only 28, he said that he would treat me with birth control to help regulate the bleeding. (I'm taking something called Tri-Sprintec? I think it is a generic drug of Orth Trycyclen). This month my bleeding has been the heaviest it's every been, lots of clotting and it hasn't stopped once for the past four days. I'm actually on 12th day of my period, but it started very light for the first week.
so i put in a tampon and didnt think twice about it thinking i got my period. but today i checked and now there is no blood and no spotting. now im getting worried. is this because i took plan b with birthcontrol, or is this just normal and im worring too much about it? i read that it can delay your period or you can skip it sometimes while taking it so i just really want to knwo what is going on and if i should get a test or not so please help me.
Hello, I have been on birth control (Tri-Sprintec, a generic version of Ortho-Tricylcen I believe) for about a year and a half now. I always take my pills regularly and have never skipped a pill. This month, I took most all my pills at 9PM and a few around 10:30-11PM after I got off work. During this month (on the second week of pills), my boyfriend ejaculated inside of me.
Was on OrthoTC bc pills for about 15 yrs before switching to generic Tri Sprintec (insurance purposes). Been on generic at least a year but past 3-4 months I started spotting and in August had to double up from missing a dose. Yes, I had sex during that time too. I got a regular period (with spotting during that month too). I got a free coupon to try brand name (ortho-lo)for one month so I switched back for September and got a regular period.
I am going to be going on vacation in October and of course my period is expected to start right in the middle of the trip. I am on tri sprintec, which I realize is a triphasic pill so there are different hormones every week. I know if I skip the sugar pills then start a new pack that I will most likely have break through bleeding.
If so, you might want to go higher. I was on ortho tri cyclen lo and LoOVral and got pregnant on both types. I needed a higher dose, and during one of my breakthru bleeding episodes I ovulated." 2songs - this was your response that I just read today. Well I am on a generic of ortho tri-cyclin called Tri-Sprintec. Don't know if that is a lower dose one or higher though. I tried looking it up but can't find the answer to that question.
Hi. I have been on the low dosage birth control pill, Tri Sprintec. I have been taking it for at least three years with normal periods each month. However, last month my period became super light almost like spotting (which has never happened before). And right after I developed flu symptoms. I took 2 pregnancy tests which said I wasn't pregnant. I still continued to have flu symptoms of nasusea, dizzyness, loss of appetite, and headaches.

Started with Ortho Tri-Cylcen, switched to OrthoTri-Cyclen Lo, and this year switched to Tri-Sprintec (generic of Ortho Lo). I've really only noticed this issue since I started Tri-Sprintec. I'm wondering if it is to blame. I'm seeing my doctor for my yearly PAP on December 23rd and I will post my findings then.
I have never been on BC before this. I started with Tri-sprintec, at first it seemed to stop the bleeding and cause me to feel better. Though if I don't take BC I continue to bleed brown blood. Then the last period I have was more painful then any other period that I have had in my life. I couldn't sleep because of it and had terrible diarrhea. I feel gasy and bloated constantly. I also suffer from constipation.
I went to my doctor who would allow me to pay cash who gave me Tri-sprintec and It was suppose to stop my period and as of today I have been bleeding since 3/11/2013.I don't have fibroids endometriosis or anything. I am overweight and I started dieting and lost 11lbs in 2 weeks. My doctor said the sudden weight loss brought it on but I have no idea why the birth control won't stop the bleeding. Some days are heavier than others but I am so tired of being on my period. Any advice???

I've been diagnosed with PCOS recently and will start Metformin and Clomid. I've heard the chances of having a healthy pregnancy with these meds are 40% for PCOS women which isn't too bad but wish it was more like 80% : ) Just wanted to hear any success stories to help cheer me up.
You wrote that you have been on Karvia for 10months and never took the placebo pills and thus never had a real period except for occasional spotting. May I ask why you did this and did your gynecologist know that you were doing this? The reason why I am concerned is that when you don't have a period at least every 4 months you put yourself at a higher risk for uterine or endometrial cancer.
