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 n tn Hi, I don't really have an answer for you; I ,too, have alot of spotting with discharge between my cycles. I do have a cyst on my left ovary associated with pcos. I'm am on metformin. I know they cause irregular bleeding. What I don't understand is why I am spotting the same time every month. I've read it could have alot to do with the changes in hormones. I've also heard some people spotting just before or during ovulation.
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!
1552510 tn?1294194411 so many different things on the web. I usually have a period at the end of every month and it stops at the beggining of the next month. My last period started on the 18th of Dec. of 2010 (which is kinda weird bc thats the middle of the month). I had really bad cramping which i usually don't and was breathing heavy but had a regular period just a little heavier than normal. Well Jan.
1552510 tn?1294194411 I usually get my period at the end of every month lasting until the beginning of the new month. My last period started the 18th of Dec. 2010 (which is werid because that is the middle of the month) with unbearable cramps and heavy breathing that usually do not occur, but went on like a normal period but just slightly heavier. On Jan.1st, two weeks later, i noticed i gushed out some dark red blood mixed with a little white mucus and tissue about dime sized. what is this?
Avatar f tn s how mine was at times, though I feel it was unrelated as I would still have a period on the days I was not with my boyfriend, just it would vary between spotting and being heavy depending on the day.
Avatar m tn Whew, trying to follow that. So, you are not taking a break in between pill packs to get the induced sugar pill (cessation of hormones) spotting? I'd probably not do that to be honest. It's not like a real period but rather some spotting. Usually not that heavy. I'm not sure what is going except that you seem to be out of balance hormonally. This can happen--- perhaps the kind of pill you are on isn't a great fit for you.
Avatar f tn I believe either the cysts or the fallopian tube was the cause of the spotting (or both). i have read many accounts of the cysts causing spotting particularly mid-cycle. My GP also tried birth control which also didn't work. I am hopeful that the surgery has fixed this problem with spotting but I do hope so. i would advise talking to your Dr about getting a lap to rule out endometriosis before having a hysterectomy.
Avatar f tn Mine started in January, the whole month, but only with spotting. But this month, starting 3/15, I started spotting. And today I am bleeding but not heavily with some small clots. I am not on any medication just multivitamins. I do work graveyard shifts as a nurse and thought it could be stress or not eating right. Someone please help in answering our questions. I can't explain not having intercourse with my husband because I am having this problem.
Avatar f tn sometimes occurs days before ovulation, sometimes after). It is heavier than the light, brown spotting I have experienced between periods in the past, but not as heavy as a period. An ultrasound and a blood test showed no worrying results, I am not pregnant or on the pill, and the gynecologist I visited dismissed it as stress (I have in recent months moved to a new country with a different language).
963403 tn?1247176873 It is normal to have irregular spotting between periods, especially when you're new to the pill. The pill also makes your periods much lighter, because what the drug does is thin out your uterine lining. The thinner the lining, the lighter your period will be when it sheds. (That's what a period is-- the blood is what lines your uterus every month.
Avatar n tn The last two months I have had spotting almost constantly between periods and both months right around the time I am suppose to ovulate I have had sharp pains in my perineum (area between vagina and rectum) that only last a few minutes, usually at night and only one or two days. I have had a pap in the last year and have never had a bad one come back. Has anyone had similar symptoms??? I have a gyno appointment in 2 1/2 months, but I wonder if I should go sooner.
Avatar f tn When I had irregular periods I went on the birth control pill long enough to straighten out my periods.
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.
Avatar f tn thank yu
Avatar f tn I havent started it yet. Was going to today but forgot to fill it today. I'll fill it tomorrow and start taking it. Hopefully I don't have issues with it. I need something to shorten my periods and help the pain. 10 day periods are insane. I used to be 3 days.
Avatar f tn For the last two months, I have noticed that I have bleeding/spotting between my periods. last month I did not think too much about it coz it was very light. This time it was more although I did not have to wear sanitary napkins.. But am worried. Am scared of going to the doc as well..... Can anyone tell me if this is serious? Thanks!!
705947 tn?1228849793 Why am I spotting brown between my periods? I think I might be having a miscarrige. I was 55 days late last month but I had a 4 day period and now 16 days after my last period Im spotting brown.
Avatar f tn I have only had protected (by the pill) sex with my now ex boyfriend apart from the last few months when i came off the pill so we used condoms, but now that we are not together I am not sexually active. Should i be worried about the bleeding? Thanks for your help.
Avatar f tn I came off the pill feb this year all periods where ok on time then this month I had my normal period and now I have been bleeding lightly for 6 days now my normal period is due next week what are my chances of me being pregnant please help
Avatar n tn Any vaginal bleeding between periods, spotting, or missed/irregular periods can happen especially during the first few months of use. It is best to consult your gynecologist and discuss your concerns with her. That will be helpful. Do keep us posted. Take care and regards!
Avatar f tn More than likely its because your off the pill. Mine did that to me also and i was on it for a few years. If it keeps happening or you notice pain just make an appt.
Avatar n tn Also, this bleeding is not a week after my period. I had my period at the very beginning of the month (like the 2nd) so this is just randomly between. & It's definitely not just my period coming early cause it is way to light.
Avatar f tn Just another note: an extra period doesn't indicate pregnancy. If you spot between periods (light spotting for maybe a day or two), it could be implantation bleeding, but full on bleeding does not signify pregnancy. Many women do not experience implantation bleeding at all. If you are taking your pill daily at about the same time without fail, you shouldn't be ovulating to get pregnant.
