Bleeding between periods while on the pill

Common Questions and Answers about Bleeding between periods while on the pill


Avatar f tn Does anyone know when I should count/expect my next period cos if its from the first bleed I'm late!!! If the second I'm not!?
Avatar f tn Hmm, I would suggest seeing a gynecologyst to discuss your symptoms. Are you on the Birth contron pill? Usually a lot of women with irregular and heavy periods such as your can benefit from the BCP. I would especially bring up with the gynecoplogist the dyspareunia or painful sex. There are treatments or ways to manage that.
Avatar f tn Hi, the last few days ive been having a lot of brown vaginal discharge with small clots in, and ive just popped to the loo and im bleeding quite heavily. The blood is a lot darker than a usual period, its practically black, and i only came off my period about 10 days ago so know im not due yet. I came off the contraceptive pill a few months ago and thought it was probably linked but just wanted some advice/other opinions.
Avatar f tn I was still worried so i took 2 Yasmin combination pill on day 5 and 2 Yasmin pills on day 6. I did not take the pill after that. Ever since I have had heart burn and stomach ache, belching and pain between the shoulders. Today, day 13 of my cycle, i am bleeding, infact heavier than day 1 of my periods. The discharge is fresh bright red with mucous. I have never had mid cycle bleeding before. What is causing this?? Its not pregnancy or implantation bleeding, is it??
Avatar n tn i then had it removed and went back to he pill which i then started to get breakthrough bleeding on. one doctor upped my pill dosage to a higher one which i got breakthrough bleeding with as well. in august last year i stopped all forms of contraception in hopes of letting my body right itself and maybe falling pregnant. since then the bleeding has progressively got worse since.
Avatar f tn im on the pill and do not want to come off the pill until i am pregnant for sure. but my partner wants me to come off the pill. ive been off for a month abd a half now im taking them again, because when im off the pill i go 7-8 months without a period on the pill its regular. what should i do keep taking the pill or come off the pill?

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 n tn but you can still spot and bleed sometimes while on the pill. even if you have been on the pill for a year. it happens. it doesnt usually mean anythings wrong.
Avatar f tn a period, that you get from the withdrawal of the hormones in the pill. Directions for what to do with a light or missed period while on the pill (from the Univ of Iowa OB/GYN website "IF YOU HAVE TAKEN ALL PILLS CORRECTLY and have a very light or miss a period, keep taking your pills. IF YOU MISS TWO PERIODS, in a row, call the clinic. IF YOU MISS ANY PILLS AND MISS A PERIOD, call the clinic.
Avatar m tn I did have one brief bit of unprotected sex with my regular partner (who is clean and on the pill) 12 days ago. This week (8 days after we had sex) she told me she started bleeding in between her periods but she also mentioned that 2 days prior, she forgot to take her pill 2 days in a row. It seems like a normal body reaction to her missing 2 days (she is basically experiencing period symptoms) but of course knowing that bleeding between periods is a sign of an STI has me freaked out.
Avatar m tn s also possible to have breakthrough bleeding (bleeding in between periods) while on the pill. The only way to know for sure is take a pregnancy test.
Avatar f tn I started bleeding on the second of this month and ended on the seventh or eigth i ovulated and thought hey the mucus seemed really fertile about four to five days after ovulation (thirteen days after period ended) i started to bleed again. didn't seem normal either.....was a lil bloody mucus and almost like light colored blood and it lasted there something wrong with my body....does it make it more unlikely for us to conceive?
Avatar f tn i feel sickly and have back ache like when im on my period. im on the pill but have been for 10 years, same one, never any problems with it. i have no std's and neither does my partner (both checked recently) im not sure whether i should wait and see if it happens again or go to the doctors. they'll probably tell me to wait and see anyway!
Avatar m tn m very good about taking the pill on time and I even take the sugar pills which is supposed to be the time when you have your period. I have probably missed a pill or two during the years I've been taking it but again I have never had any problems. I am sexually active and my partner and I sometimes have unprotected sex. I worry that sometimes I may be pregnant because my periods will be light sometimes and heavy with clots other times.
Avatar f tn I was still worried so i took 2 Yasmin combination pill on day 5 and 2 Yasmin pills on day 6. I did not take the pill after that. Ever since I have had heart burn and stomach ache, belching and pain between the shoulders. I usually have a 30-32 day cycle. Today, I am day 17 of my cycle and been bleeding for 4 days now. MED HELP Doctors forum opined that it may be due to irregular use of Yasmin in high doses those 2 days.
Avatar n tn what is the difference between implantation bleeding and periods? also how long after implantation period will a hpt come out positive if i am pregnant?
Avatar f tn Sometimes with the pill you can have bleeding between periods 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.
Avatar f tn m 16 and my boyfriend and I have sex offten but lately I have been bleeding everyday like a period. I have been on the pill for a while. I have not been taking the last week of pills that I hear don't do anything for u. I am wondering if that's the problem or something more serious. Help?
Avatar f tn If you have bleeding between periods, try to take your pills at the same time every day. If you have spotting (light bleeding between periods) for several cycles, call the doctor's office for advice. I hope that this helps you, and the sites I provided help to explain the functions of your BCP and what you should do if you miss one in future. I think for you since you are on LoEs, you need to ensure you are taking them at exactly the same time each and every day.
1913857 tn?1322259956 He says that his second round inside me will get me pregnant even while on the pill. He said this had happened with his other girlfriend who he lived with years ago. The following week I got my period when I took the placebo pills and got my period although lighter then usual. So now end of the second week of the new pack I'm spotting bright red blood. I've bin more tired lately and a little nauseous. Little freaked out we are getting married in August.
Avatar n tn This brown discharge increased and bleeding started right after 3 or 4 days after my periods. I was on a progestin pill since 3 months and i was really relaxed these months. Now i am asked to have a low mg combination pill (progyluton), but i am bleeding now since 20 days after my regular period. Is it that I am having any hormonal imbalance or something else?? I have had a pap smear and it showed Chronic cervicitis. I had an ultrasound and it was normal.
Avatar n tn Just read the package directions that are enclosed in your pill because the side effects are listed and breakthrough bleeding is the one that all women on the pill get to experience sooner or later when they are on the pill.
Avatar m tn For example, while taking the combination pill, my period always arrived spot on and only lasted for 4 days. I started the mini-pill on the last day of my past period as my doctor told me to do so. I waited more than the recommended 48 hours before having unprotected sex. I have been taking it EVERY day at the same hour 7am without missing any pills (I have an app which I use to log my pills).
Avatar n tn hi, iv been taking yasmin for a few months now, and i was on a previous pill before that but had a bad reaction to it hence had to change. anyway last month i started bleeding before my week off, so i kept taking the pill on my week off because i didnt want to have a 'period' for 2 weeks. then this month on my week off, nothing happened, no bleeding at all.
