Spotting between periods while on the pill

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


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 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 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 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 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 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 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 I decided to wait for my withdrawal bleeding and last pill was on the 15th and my period started on the 19th and my 7th day was on the 22nd. I started my new pack of pills on the 23rd of Saturday and I'm on my 3rd pill from my new pack, but my period has not stopped. Im not having heavy periods, but when I wipe, I'm still getting sticky fresh looking blood. Why wont my bc stop my period?
Avatar f tn Hi. So, when we are on the pill, we don't 'really' get periods. The pill manipulates our hormones so we don't ovulate at all (required for a real period) and during the 'off week' of pills, that cessation of hormones in our system causes spotting. As hormones are added, taken away, we can have break through bleeding or spotting. Another possibility, do you have any itching?
Avatar f tn STOP taking your pill. You need to either wait till you get your period then once it stops restart your pill, having protection for 10 days or go to the doc and have blood test done to confirm your not. Your better of seeing your doc because they can give you advice on when to restart or if your pregnant they can start you on prenatals straight away and help you make your descions ect ect.
Avatar f tn I still got a period while on the mini pill. A lot of women don't have a period. But I assume it's because a lot of women start it while breast feeding, which delays a woman's period after childbirth anyway. I've never been pregnant so I don't know if that's why I still got my period anyway. In any case, you have to take it every day at the same time for it to be effective. And if you miss any, it has a higher fail rate then the regular pill.
7600327 tn?1393358885 Hi Ladies... I have been on the NuvaRing for a long time. While I had the NuvaRing in I started spotting & then the spotting turned into a regular period. I know your period isn't supposed to come on until you take the NuvaRing out, but I also know you can experience some bleeding while on birth control. Nevertheless I made a doctor's appointment & found out I was pregnant.
374593 tn?1257879950 Hello everyone! hope everyone is doing ok! So i am on the birth control pill this month due to cysts. and i still have a week left of the pills and am spotting - heavier spotting.. not sure what this is about! i have never spotting while on the pill, unless it was continuous.. i'm a little crampy and bloated as well, scared i still have cysts..
Avatar n tn are you on the mini pill or the combined pill? the mini pill will cause spotting and its a nuisance,also changing pills can cause this, the combined pill normally settles periods, we are recommended that if it this lasts more than two-three months we see our doctor to check for any other problems. are you taking iron for the anaemia?
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.
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.
Avatar n tn My periods have never been irregular and I have been tracking them religiously for the past 6 months and now, this month I recently started my period on December 8th (five days later then normal) and it ended on the 12th. I had unprotected sex with my husband on the 11th. Went three days without a period and started spotting again on the 16th. It's not heavy and started as clear mucus with bright red streaks and then spotting more with activity.
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 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 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 My doctor (family and my gyno) both say to just ignore the spotting. Which is okay when it is not heavy, but I went on the depo shot because a friend had suggested it to me. She said she experienced bleeding after the shot and was prescribed estrogen for it. She took it for 3 days and her periods and spotting stopped completely. Now, my doctors will not prescribe me anything.
Avatar f tn I went to the doc and she said i had no infection and my urine tests came out negative for whatever they tested for. I have to go back in 2 weeks to take another preg test if i don't get my period. Could it be something else?
Avatar n tn umm it could be implantation bleeding, but spotting between periods can also result from using the pill/patch for birth control or from some stds or from just menstrual irregularity. take a pregnancy test and if it still concerns you, you may want to see a doctor. hope that helps.
