@Merelymere: spotting and such is normal on birth control especially early on…. why didn’t your doctor tell you this? you need a new doctor.

My first few months on the pill I spotted & cramped halfway through the month. It’s totally normal 🙂

@Merelymere:  I’ve spotted on several types of birth controls. Breakthrough bleeding isn’t uncommon. BC is so low dose these days… Disclaimer: NOT a doctor. If it turns into a full blown (ask your doctor to make sure) period I would stop the pills, bleed for a few days, and start the pills again the following Sunday like usual.

@ChuckNorris:  really? low dose? my month-long breakthrough bleeding happened because I was on high dose. pretty sure each woman’s reaction to high or low dosage is unique.

@Merelymere:  Consider calling your pharmacist. They really are the experts when it comes to medication and their side effects and interactions.

@Merelymere:  I was on Ortho-Tri Cyclen Lo for a good 6-8 months (usually it should take about 6 months to stabalize) and then I had breakthrough bleeding randomly one day for a month nonstop. If you didn’t miss any pills and took it as normal I don’t think you are pregnant. Did anything change like meds, stress, etc? Sometimes spotting and cramping could be a UTI possibly?

@strawbs:  The “low dose” and “high dose” versions of birth control today are actually very low dose in comparison to older birth controls. That’s all I was saying. Not saying you’re more likely to bleed on the low or high dose types these days.

Are you on any other meds right now beside the BC?  They may be interacting with the BC.  I would say if it continues to call the pharmacist or the doctor.
