Sprintec spotting

Common Questions and Answers about Sprintec spotting


Avatar m tn I switched from yaz to tri-sprintec this past month and I started spotting about a 8 or 9 days into it and havent stopped. Some days its just a little spot and other days it bleeds like my period. I have been doing this for 14 days now. If anyone knows what this is or has any thought it would be greatly appreciated. Im pretty sure Im not pregnant because if I have sex with my boyfriend he wears a condom and still pulls out even when Im on birth control.
Avatar f tn Usually the first few months of the pill you will get the side effects of acne, spotting, mood swings, weight gain etc. I got none of that and, in fact, my acne got better and spotting stopped. But the past month I have gained weight quickly and I havent done anything different than before, I am spotting with horrible acne issues and I am quick to be moody. Is this normal? Does it vary from month to month?
Avatar m tn I've been on tri sprintec for a while now. I skip the white pills and take them every 3rd month. I've felt pregnant before but this month has been really bad. Anyone else having issues? I want to stop taking it to see if af comes.
Avatar f tn Started taking Sprintec two months ago sunday July 14. Didn't start the first sunday of my cycle just a random sunday so my period would be at the beginning of the month. Ended up skipped the first month of placebo pills for vacation; no side effects. Started the next month worth of pill August 4, everything was fine, until two weeks I started spotting, didn't think anything of it, just thought it was due to skipping my cycle week.
Avatar n tn I am on Sprintec and recently took the Antibiotic Levaquin is there a decresed effectiveness with this Antibiotic? How long should I wait to have sex after completing taking this Antibiotic? My doctor said that I should refrain from sex only while taking the antibiotic. Many websites say different things like to wait a week after the antibiotic has ended. Which is correct? I get frequent sinus infections from allergies so I really need to know the correct information.
Avatar f tn I have been taking Tri-Sprintec tablets for about 5 months once in the morning around 9:00 AM. Beforehand I had irregular periods which occurred every 3 months. So, I went on these tablets to regulate my period as well as for birth control because I have been having unprotected sex. I usually get my period the 4th week but usually lasts for only 3-4 days. Is that normal? I do not get the full week of my period.
1037984 tn?1252860841 I was on Amoxicillin last week taking it 3 times a day and I'm also on the birth control pill Tri-Sprintec. The doctor Pharmacist all told me that the Amoxicillin would cancel out the birth control, so my husband and I were using condoms for the week. Two days ago, we had unprotected sex and yesterday I started spotting. Today it's heavier than yesterday and I have back pain like I've started my period, but my period isn't supposed to start until September 23.
Avatar f tn I've been on Sprintec for over 6 months now and have had issues with random heavy spotting for about 3.5 months now. The spotting seems to just start out of nowhere at times, although I have noticed that the spotting will occur when I am more stressed (other times it will just happen when I'm not stressed at all). I've tried to be really consistent about taking my pill at the same time every single night, so I'm unsure what would cause me to spot so frequently and heavily.
Avatar f tn I did not get my period, but on a Tuesday of my second week pills I started spotting/bleeding which hasn't stopped yet and I am going into my third week (Sunday) pill. My cycle isn't supposed to come for at least another 10 days. Do I just continue taking all colored pills until the placebos or can I just stop for 7 days like I would with the placebos to have my "period" and then start a new pack? I am on sprintec.
Avatar f tn So i'm 16 and i've been on tri sprintec for 2 years now. I just became sexually active 5 months ago with the same person, we're both clear of STD's. 6 days ago on saturday, we had sex in the shower and it kind of hurt because there was no lubrication. No bleeding that day and then on sunday he fingered me and it kind of hurt. On sunday night i wiped and there was bright red blood and then it's been dark brown/dark red blood since then. It's been about 6 days now.
1123156 tn?1338866969 and barely anything comes out! .....I am on Tri-sprintec for birth control.....could this be my period., or could it be from the BC??
Avatar f tn I've been on birth control (tri-sprintec) for a couple of years now and I take it pretty regularly and when I have sex I always use a condom. Yesterday I had some really sharp pains in my abdomen and stomach right after I ate. I thought it was just gas or something that I ate. The cramps went away after a couple of hours, but then I started having brown spotting so I put a tampon in.
Avatar n tn It was pretty heavy for 4 days but when I started my new pack of pills it stopped, I am in my third row of pills now and I have started spotting, someone told me that I still could be pregnant. But I also have a yeast infection and I have been treating it with over the counter drugs, Generic Monistat cream. I told my doctor what had happened that I took plan B and then had my period she said that I was okay.
Avatar f tn I take my birth control regularly (tri-sprintec). My last period was February 25. A little later than usual because of a last minute business trip to Vegas and I was extremely stressed out. I took a pill late (was suppose to take it at night but took it in the morning and then that's days pill I took at night to get me back on schedule) a 8 days later of taking the pill consistently my bf and I had unprotected sex. 5 days later I had forgotten to take my pill.
Avatar n tn I've been taking Sprintec. A generic birth control pill. It causes my period to be regular, depending on if I take the pills like I am supposed to. I am really forgetful, so I forgot to take about a weeks worth of pills. After that I have spotting, light pink, sometimes lined with small strings of blood, constipation, which is causing anxiety because I had unprotected sex with an ex boyfriend about a month to a month in a half ago. Could it be implantation bleeding?
Avatar f tn Although since starting Sprintec, I have never experienced the side effects that it may bring, although spotting between menstrual cycles IS one of those side effects. My current medications I am taking right now is Butal, Vallium, and a heavy dose of Ibuprofen. I've searched online to see if those medications later the effectiveness of birth control, but have found nothing. But as I said before, I'm not sure what other medications I was intravenously while in the hospital.
Avatar n tn im taking sprintec bith control pills. and ive missed like 4 days. i had sex the night before i started spotting. is there any chances that im pregnant?
Avatar n tn havent been on tri sprintec for a month and have also not started a period either, having horrible cramps and extremely gassy, and extremely light pink spotting thats thats only from wiping when i go to the restroom im not sure whats going on im also have alot of pressure and a dull pain on one side of my stomach in the lower area
Avatar f tn September 3 - I started feeling like I was going to get my period. I had the normal cramping I get. I even started spotting in my underwear and when I wipe (sorry if TMI)! I have been spotting since then. Nothing more. I keep think I am going to start but every time I go to the bathroom NOTHING MORE!! I am on Sprintec (birth control). I just wonder if anyone else is having these issues like me. I did take a HPT on Sept. 4. It came back negative. My partner is dead set that I am Pregnant.
Avatar f tn Ok so here goes... I have been on Tri Sprintec Lo for the past 6 months or so. Never missed a pill. I have never taken a pill more than 30 minutes late. I had sex 2 weeks ago (November 17th.) The sex was protected, and the condom had spermocide. BUT he did put the condom on upside down, realized it was not right and then flipped it over and unrolled it. I began spotting light brown blood on the 25th of November and it continued into the weekend and got gradually darker.

Avatar f tn Hi, Yesterday I started having some very light pinkish spotting only noticeable when I wipe. It was accompanied by very light cramping, headache, and fatigue. Also I have been more moody than normal. It is a week before the start of my period. I had sex several times in the last two weeks. I am on the pill Tri-sprintec, but I did miss a few pills at the beginning of this month. I haven't tested yet because I think it is still too early. What do you think?
Avatar m tn Hello, Such continuous spotting/ bleeding can be due to menorrhagia. Causes of menorrhagia are Hypothyroidism, Endometrial proliferation or hyperplasia like ovarian tumor and polycystic ovarian disease,endometrial polyps and neoplasia,endometriosis,fibroids and uterine sarcomas. In my opinion you need to get your pelvic examination done from your gynecologist along with investigations like complete blood count,thyroid function tests,PAP smear and ultrasound uterus.
Avatar m tn I've been taking tri-sprintec birth control for almost a year now. The last time I was sexually active was on july 16 and my last period came two days after that and a condom was used. I decided to stop taking the birth control for good once I finished that last pack that I was on and I can't remember the exact day of my last pill when I got off, but I haven't had a period since. Lately, I've been having temporary pain (sting) in the vagina and my abdomen has been hurting.
Avatar f tn I have been on Tri Sprintec birth control for over two years and never had any problems. I take the pill every day between the time of 7-8. I have been with the same guy for over four years, and am sexually active but we always use another form of protection. (Condoms, pulling out, etc.) I am scheduled to start my period in 8 days (Sept 15) but two days ago I noticed this brown discharge when I wiped, it had a tint of red in it for a few hours then went back to a brown color.
Avatar f tn I used to take tri-lo-sprintec tablet generic for (ortho tri-cyclen LO) for the past 6 six years, but in Michigan we do not have it in generic form anymore. Therefore this month i started taking Eth estradi/norgestimate and I feel very lazy and sleepy all the time and I see that I have been gaining weight. My question is is what I am taking now the same as what I was taking before because that is what the pharmacy told me?
