  • On the pill, think I had a miscarriage?

    Basically I started the pill (Rigevidon) about a month ago and am a few days into my weeks break...

    Yesterday I was absolutely exhausted and at about 11pm I started feeling intense stomach cramps (when I have my periods normally I usually have little to no pain) and at 12 I saw I was bleeding so put a tampon in, took some paracetamol and continued as I thought it was the bleed that comes in your week break. At about 1 am the pain got even worse, so I sat on the toilet and passed two blood clots with a long clearer coloured bit attached to it that’s similar texture. I freaked out and flushed it down the loo but before I had a look and I could like pull it so it was like a flat sheet? Idk if this is relevant but anyways that happened and now my pain is dying down. I’ve looked up stuff online and the main thing I’ve seen is people saying that it’s a miscarriage (but it might just be one of those things you look up online and there’s all sorts of things and I’m just freaking myself out lol)

    What do you guys think it is? Should I phone my doctor? Take a pregnancy test? I’m not bothered if it is a miscarriage, I’m 18 and I don’t want kids. What do I do after this though, should I just continue as normal and go back on my pill when I should? Thank you in advance xx

  • Did you start the pill on the first day of your last cycle?

    When were you due for your first period on the pill?

    Did you have unprotected sex in the weeks leading up to starting the pill?

    Have you been taking any antibiotics since you started the pill?

    It's normal to experience crazy hormonal symptoms when you first start hormonal birth control. It can take several months to get leveled out and some people never fully level out.

    • I'd ask yourself Beautiful Disaster's questions and go to a family planning clinic. I am not a doctor, so can't offer any medical advice, but I would seek treatment urgently. You could also go to your doctor, but a family planning clinic is equally as useful: if not better. I can't say if you've had a miscarriage, but make that appointment.

        I think that's the bottom line! Each person/couple should do whatever feels right for them -- even if it is to please the other party, so long as it's...

        It makes perfect sense, though. It might not be fool-proof but really if you find yourself rooting for one side over the other, that kinda tells you exactly...

        The guy my friend was dating apparently sensed her disinterest, and asked her if she'd like to continue dating. She avoided the question, and that was...
