Avatar f tn Hi,. I've on birth control pill for 3 months. It's a 21 day pill. Ever since i started the pill my period was so light and sometimes it last for 3 days. Before i took the pills i was a normal-heavy period and never skip a period even for single month. I started Diane 35 on january first day of my period. On february while on 7 days no pill, i had a very light period, brown to pinkish and lasted for 3 days. Then on march same thing till april a very light period every 7 days no pill.
Avatar f tn Why are you going on birth control? It is not healthy be on birth control for long periods of time, so if you don't need it(are not sexually active and don't have problems with menstruation) then I would recommend holding off on getting the pill. Right now, you are 14 and your periods need some time to regulate themselves as your body gets used to all the hormone fluctuations. Try keeping track of your periods on a calendar to see when you begin and finish your period.
Avatar n tn Hi I was just wondering if you got pregnant on birth control, would you still get a period(withdrawal bleeding)? I know anything is possible but for the most part...also, when would you test positive? Also, if anyone has gotten pregnant on birth control...what was your experience with it? thanks!
Avatar n tn Has anyone recently stopped using birth control (pill, Cyclesa) and seen a little hint of a mustache? I have very blonde hair and very light blue eyes. Even the hair on my legs is white. And I have never had this hair underneath my nose by dark. Its really gross and I wanted to know if once I get back on (Im starting the ring after this months period) if this darkening on my lip will go back or do I have to become a registered waxer?

Avatar n tn It can take a little while to get your periods regular when starting a birth control pill. I would however encourage you to keep track of your cycle for a few months to make sure you are not having any break throw bleeding. If you were, you would need to see your doctor for a medication change.

Avatar f tn I recently started birth control pills about 3 weeks ago and this sunday nov. 3 I went to the restroom and had light bleeding then I went back an hour later and it stopped and its been going on all week i had the light red bleeding for 5 days and today it was a really dark color my period is due next week. Usually my periods last seven days and are heavy. Basically I was wondering if that was my period and it just came early due to the pill or changed? Or is it something else?
Avatar f tn I am on the pill and have been for about a year. I did get my period however it is a really light brown, which lasted about 5 days. I have not forgotten any pills or had unprotected sex in the last month. Could this mean early pregnancy?
Avatar f tn Can stopping the birth control give you brown discharge of 8 days? and a delayed period?. i have always taken my pills, active and inactive pills every month... but now stopped it the birth control... i have a delayed period... at least 29 to 31 days sincle last brown discharge from the 2nd to the 8th-10th of July... i have regular periods after 21 to 23 days...
Avatar f tn your period technically isn't a period on it but rather breakthrough bleeding due to the drop in hormones. Birth control is believed to work by 1) thinning the uterine lining (hence, the lighter flow many women experience) and 2) preventing ovulation.
Avatar f tn I've been on lo lestrin FE for about 5 months and I usually do not have a period, and if I do it's light and spotting. I got on birth control because I was having a lot of periods in a month. Well I had sex during my white pill which I believe are the sugar pills and we didn't use a condom and the next day I started my period.
Avatar n tn I have been on the pill for 4 years. I got my period on March 9th and it lasted about 5 days and it was little light. I switched pills on March 14th. I had unprotected sex on the 19th and 20th, but I am on the pill. Today is the 25th and I have been experiencing some bleeding. It is not really red, but more brownish and a little thick. Should I be experiencing this since I switched pills and my body is trying to get used to the new pill?
