Thread: Bleeding during active pills

    Bleeding during active pills

    I find it a funny coincidence this is now happening to me after i replied to the other thread about this topic

    Last night i had a bit of spotting.. ive still got a week on my active pills to go. I was not worried cause this has been happening to me for like 5 months now.

    But then today its gotten heavier. Where as usually it's very light bleeding for a day or two then i don't bleed again until the sugar pills.

    I did miss a pill (my first active pill after the sugars) because i went to visit my mom and forgot to bring them with me. I've never done that before and i didn't take another until the next day at the usual time. I'm wondering if that is what's caused it?


    Unless the guy i slept with has super sperm and got me preggo through a condom and my contraceptive pill (which has been successfully working for me for like 6 years now) then there's no way it's a pregnancy related thing.

    I'm kinda worried it could be STI related though that also seems far stretched and i have no other symptoms of an STI everything looks fine down there no funky smells no bumps no nothing and we used a condom each time. He did go down on me though. Even so that still seems far fetched

    Im freaking out that i won't get to have sexy time on my birthday now which is only a couple of days away and i have a night scheduled with the hot Spanish guy I've been sleeping with. ... this cannot happen! Stupid period

    Someone help lol is this normal when you miss a pill? I hope it only lasts a few days waaaaaaahhh

    That's definitely happened to me when I've missed a pill! I wouldn't worry too much.

    That's happened to me once or twice, although the blood was really brown/almost black which was prettt disgusting. Your body could just be sensitive to the hormone levels, it's probably fine.

    My ob changed my birth control today because I spot. Apparently that's not supposed to happen.

    I haven't been on the pill in ages, but when I was this happened to me at least a two or three times (spoiler: I wasn't pregnant any of those times, nor did I have any STIs).

    Haha thanks guys! Im pretty certain its cause i missed that pill. I dont know if i should ask my doc about it (need to get a pap anyway) cause i have been getting spotting between sugar pills for like 5 months now. Not usually this heavy though. And it was bright red blood this time which i thought strange

    Anyway im a lucky gal as it has finally stopped. Im hoping i wont bleed again till the sugar pills

    Did she say why it may be happening? I really didnt think much of it till i read the thread on the alleys where someone else said it may be cause the pill isnt strong enoigh :/

    Not like it really matters for pregnancy for me atm cause ill be using condoms for the forseeable future. I really just use this to control my period + having 2 barriers for pregnancy never hurts

    ^if you miss a pill, take it as soon as you remember. If you don't remember until the next day I think you're supposed to take two at once.

    But also the little instruction print out that comes with the pills has a section on what to do if you miss a pill (they should be online too, I always throw mine out haha)

    Haha yeah my issue is I didnt take it as soon as I remembered, or take 2 at once (dumb, i know..) I just continued taking them as normal lol. So now I'm at the end of my active pills & i have an extra pill left. Not sure if i should take it or just leave it tbh. I'm really just concern of fucking up my period / cycle. I don't want anymore unexpected bleeding if i can avoid it :P

    I would take it. If you’re on an ortho tri cyclen the pills have a different amount of progesterone each week. So just finish it out
