Common Questions and Answers about Bleeding between periods while on birth control


Avatar f tn Now, this all isnt enough blood to fill a tampon or pad. I have never had any spotting while on the birth control until now. My bf and I do have unprotected sex and he ejaculates inside me every time, whish is about once or twice a week. I have been stressed with school and everything else. I dont really know what to do. Could i be pregnant? Could there be something wrong with me? Or is this normal?

Avatar n tn It is common to have irregular vaginal bleeding or breakthrough bleeding while on Levlen between your periods. Irregular vaginal bleeding may stop after your body has adjusted to LEVLEN which may be after about 3 cycles.Brevicon can also cause breakthrough bleeding. Illness, medication, nutritional deficiencies, hormonal changes, stress or rapid variations in weight, disorders affecting the thyroid gland all can lead to irregular menstrual cycles. Take a balanced diet and a healthy meal.
Avatar m tn Thins that can cause bleeding inbetween periods include taking the emergency contraceptive pill injury or disease of the vagina – for example, from having rough sex, an infection, ulcer or varicose veins a recent abortion – if you’re bleeding heavily, seek medical advice sexually transmitted infections (STIs) such as chlamydia – if you’ve recently had unprotected sex with a new partner, it’s a good idea to get tested reproductive hormones not working normally – this is common in women ap
364288 tn?1300148106 I have been on Ortho Tri Lo but the past few months I'm having bleeding between periods with it. My OB decided this past week that I need a all-month high dose instead of the low, medium, high dose pack that the Lo has. She called in a new kind but I forget the name...haven't picked it up yet because I need to finish out the Lo pack first. We'll see! I will say the Lo has made my periods a breeze, very mild cramps if any and no PMS.
Avatar f tn Oh wow noway:/ & oh my gosh 4babies on birth control does birth control even work then sounds like it doesn't like if its ment to be its ment to be lol..
Avatar n tn I am 23 years old and since the middle of January I have been experiencing irregular spotting between my periods. I am on birth control pills 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.
Avatar f tn I have never missed a period and have never been pregnant. I have been married for 4 years and am not on any kind of birth control. My last period started on Mar 12 and since Wed, April 1 I have been spotting brown "stuff." I don't usually see it until I go to wipe myself after using the bathroom. I am not due for my period for another 2 weeks. I did go to the Dr. today and she told me that it's not really a big concern and the urine sample came back (-) for pregnancy.
Avatar n tn Well I have been on birth control pills 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.
1703515 tn?1350503831 Bleeding between your periods and spotting is common with birth control patch. Bleeding while on the patch should be discussed with your doctor. A clinical evaluation may be necessary. Keep me posted. Best luck and regards!
Avatar m tn No, you should continue with the placebo pills. Spotting, and bleeding in between periods is possible while on pills. 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.
Avatar n tn from what i here is some women need to be on birth control for a while to regulate their periods to teach their bodies. Maybe you should go back on birth control for a while longer and then start.
Avatar f tn I started Lo Loestrin Fe oral birth control pill on January 14, 2014 after being off of it since Thanksgiving of 2013. Previously I had constant break-though bleeding (more like a period- for even 2 and a half weeks) and cramps. I switched to Microgestin and that made me so sick I stopped, and then restarted Lo Loestrin Fe. I have taken it everyday and have never missed a pill.
Avatar f tn so I am considering the copper IUD because it seems like a great option and doesn't have ANY hormones. do any of you woman have any experience with this birth control method? how did it go?
Avatar f tn My husband and I have a 6 yr old daughter that I was on birth control and got off of and got pregnant a month of bein off it but now I can't get prego. We have been tryn to but nothing. My periods are all screwed up and I can't seem to keep track cuz I have so much goin on. We gave up tryn and now I'm just like if it happens it happens but I still get dissapointed when I am not prego.
676912 tn?1332816151 I had no clue whatsoever that my birth control prevents ovulation. I've never been on birth control, and didn't fully understand how it worked. My doctor offered no advice, just left to check what kind they had and returned only for a quick pop in to say my prescription was sent to the pharmacy, where they instructed me on when to take it only. So, yes I could have asked the pharmacist, and hind sight is always 20-20...
Avatar f tn Hello, The commonest cause of bleeding between periods or after intercourse is hormonal imbalance. The two hormones regulating a woman’s cycle are estrogen and progesterone. If they get out of balance, one may have spotting. Dysfunctional ovaries as in PCOD, thyroid gland problems, and starting and stopping birth control pills or any other birth control method can all affect your hormone balance. Bleeding after sex can indicate some serious problem.
Avatar f tn Honestly I would never recommend the pill. Hopefully people on here can help with advice on the other kinds of birth control. I started losing my hair when I started the pill and it's never grown back where I lost it since I've stopped. I've been off the pill for almost 2 years.
Avatar f tn Hi- This is a little complicated but I have a lot of questions, and I really appreciate any help I can get. I wanted to get pregnant, but I'm on Seasonale birth control. My period is the worst experience, and I dread getting it. (It's so heavy I soak a pad and a tampon together every hour, and I get the worst migranes and backache.) So I skip it usually. Anyhow, starting on May 7 I started to take my pill irregularly, and continued to have unprotected sex.
1422615 tn?1334067834 Although a scary thought, it is not generally considered to be a health risk to neither mother or baby. 5. Getting pregnant while on the pill. This is often associated with bleeding during a pregnancy and can be confused with a menstrual period. Many women will have several bleeding episodes before they realize something isn't right.
541196 tn?1293556536 I had some dark spotting about 4 days after I stopped which lasted about 1 day. Since starting the birth control I have been very regular and very light periods... very similar to the dark spotting. Even before the pill I was very regular. My question is... for most people with regular cycles... would that dark spotting after stopping the pack be the beginning of my newly timed cycle and ovulation fall into the normal time line or will it be a long time before I am regular?
Avatar n tn Hey guys, so I was on my pack of birth control and I miss 3 days of pills on second week of pills. My boyfriend and I had so much unprotected sex within those 3 days. this was 8/26-8-28. Then I remembered to take my pill on the 29th -1st. My fiancé and I decided we want a kid so I stopped my pill on the 2nd.
Avatar n tn Started taking birth control pill (alleesee) in June so this is just fairly recent. I was in between heavy and moderate bleeding the last 2 periods but took Ibuprofen since I was hunched over in pain. My questions are: What is a reasonable amount of time to be on the pill in the hopes that it will help get rid of the cyst and for it to be effective in reducing/stopping dysmenorrhea?
Avatar f tn to see what was wrong with my body bc i went almost 4 years without ever having a normal period, if even one at all. Well, all she did was give me the birth control patch (which you change out every wk & on the 4th wk you do not have to wear one bc you are about to start your period). While I would recommend the patch for ppl who would forget about taking the pill, i am struggling a bit. On the 4th wk i started my period like i should and it has went down hill since.
1129232 tn?1360803958 I have never been on BCP before and have only spotted one other time in between periods. I'm currently on day 16 of my cycle .
Avatar n tn Am I supposed to stick it out and keep feeling yucky or should switch back to my birth control that I had basically no problems with except minor breakthrough bleeding? I start my first real job next week and I had to buy all new work clothes b/c I didn't fit into ones I had already! Any opinions??
Avatar f tn For a month and a half I was on the birth control LoSeasonique, on June 6th I switched to LoEstrin, but when I switched birth controls I didn't stop the LoSeasonique and have a period, then start the LoEstrin, I just immediately started the LoEstrin. I had previously been on LoEstrin and while on it before I had no problems with it, no spotting, cramping and extremely light periods. On June 10th I had unprotected sex.
988694 tn?1332363079 Watch your tsh now that you are going on birth control pills. I went on birth control to prepare for IVF, and my tsh was 1.77 at the end of June and a month later, 4.84! I blame the birth control, but my meds were increased to two pills a day (I was only taking one a day and two on Sunday). I went off of birth control and now I am back down to 1.9 in less than 2 weeks. Hoping to see it even lower in a few more weeks.
