  • Pill-What is going on??

    I have been on the Birth Control Pill for about 10 years. I went off it for a month and went back on it again. I was off it for 5 weeks, got my period the first week I was on it. Then this is my third week back on it, and I have my period again. I took a pregnancy test prior to going back on it and it was negative. Why am I getting my period early?

  • bad pill

    I was on the pill and the reason i am not anymore is because I was having the same kind of problems. The first pill i was on was okay. Then i switched and I was bleeding for the 3 weeks of normal pills and not for the one week when you were supposed to. Its a weird thing. Did you get on a different kind of pill this time? My doctor always told me to just keep taking it and my body would eventually adjust to it. But i couldn't handle bleeding all the time. Also, the last birth control i was on was called zovia. If I missed one day, it would make me bleed for about three days. It was so irritating. I am not on any birth control now because i have had such bad problems with most kinds ive tried.

    • Don't freak out!

      I had the same problem! I went off the pill for a bit and then went back on. I had a lot of bleeding in between. It even out again after a couple months. That is completely normal. I even talked to my ob/gyn. So, don't worry!

      • Have you tried Orthotricyclen, or low ortho, I adjusted to it very well and it has kept me regular.
