When should I expect my period after only one month on a low-dose birth control pill? Could I be pregnant?
Q: I’m sorry if this long entry confuses anyone, but I am trying to be as detailed as possible. I am also posting this in the pregnancy forum because I imagine that there could be a small chance of pregnancy in my situation.I was on OrthoTricyclen Lo for one month. I started taking the pill on 12-7-2008 and completed that packet, but I did NOT start taking the second pack. While on the pill, I spotted a couple times, but I figured that this was because my body was getting used to the hormones, as I had NEVER taken any form of artificial hormones up until that point. I started my period on either December 23 or 24, and it lasted until about January 1 or 2. It was somewhat of a heavy flow, but once again, I attributed that to the fact that this was my first time ever taking artificial hormones. Also, I did miss the two pills on December 21 and 22, but I made up for that by taking two pills on December 23 and 24th.I was due to resume my second packet of pills on January 4, but I have not taken any pills since the two that I took on December 24. Theoretically, had I taken this packet, I would be on the placebo pills this week, meaning that I would be on my period right now. I did not continue taking the pill because I decided that I no longer wanted to be on the pill since I found it to be a hassle and learned that they don‘t allow you to have “real periods,” but you have withdrawal bleeding instead. I’ve simply decided that I would rather stick to using condoms and spermicide.When I was first prescribed the pill, I was told that most women menstruate shortly after stopping the pill (some even sooner than expected), but sometimes it can take up to three months. I assume that this goes for women who have been on the pill for a substantial amount of time, as I originally told my doctor that I planned to be on the pill for a while. I don’t understand how a low-dose pill would be able to screw up my menstrual cycle after only one month of use, especially since my menstrual cycles have been fairly regular since I started it when I was 9, and I am now 23.I have not had any heavy vaginal bleeding since my period ended. I had protected sex on January 24 (Saturday), and on Sunday, when I wiped after using the bathroom, there was a huge GLOB of whitish-almost slightly pinkish/greenish mucus on the toilet paper. It was gigantic, almost as big as a quarter in diameter. There was a tiny reddish-brownish streak of blood in the middle of it. On January 27 (Tuesday), I wiped once that day and some of my mucus was slightly pink. Since then, I have had no form of bleeding or spotting whatsoever.At first, I was told that after one week of regular pill usage, I’d be able to have unprotected sex, but I have since heard that it takes at least one packet of pills to build up enough hormones in your body for the pill to be truly effective. I don’t know what to believe. I did have unprotected sex a couple times while I was on the pill. Before the last couple days, I took the pill perfectly — I never missed a dose, and I took every one at 9 pm exactly. I did have unprotected sex a couple days before missing those two pills, but I don’t really think I could be pregnant because I have not had any early pregnancy symptoms, such as morning sickness. Since stopping the pill, I have not had unprotected sex.So, in summary, here are my basic questions:1. Has anyone out there ever been in a similar situation? If so, how did it turn out? Any advice or thoughts?2. How long would it normally take someone who was on a low dose pill for one month to get their period after stopping the pill?3. What could the light spotting and extra mucus discharge this week possibly be due to?4. I have not taken a pregnancy test yet, but I may soon. Is there seriously a small chance that I may be pregnant through all this? Has anyone out there ever had something similar happen to them?Thanks in advance for any help or answers!
A: Stop wasting our time and go take a dang test.
4 weeks late for period? please read!?
Q: I’m sorry to those of you who get soo tired of all these “am i pregnant” questions. i know you cant tell me if i am i was just wondering what you think or if you have went through something similar. I had sex with my fiance Middle May and my period was due the last day of May. We did use protection but it broke. Anyways, the thing is that i missed my period, I started getting real tired, and I have been having killer heartburn, I tested 3 times within the first couple weeks of being late and they all said negative so I quit testing and just started waiting to see if my period would come. then on the 23rd I started spotting, this lasted about 4 days or so. it was real light and only when i wiped. now still no period. I know i need to take another test now, i was just wondering if any of you took a long time showing on a test or had to have a blood test done to find out you were pregnant, or could the spotting just be a light period and mean im not prego. Thanks in advance for the help!!never took plan B, would be happy if I were pregnant
A: Your time line is perfect opportunity to become pregnant and he obviously ejaculated in you since your barrier broke. Get professionally tested, don’t wait you could be having an ectopic pregnancy (attached inside the fallopian tube) that is highly dangerous, if you wait until you start having pain it could be too late.. please go to the doctor.
Im 20 years old and i might be pregnant?
Q: Hello. So my period usually comes around the 22-29 of every month. I got it last month {august} around the week of 18-23. I had unprotected sex ONLY once in Sept 8. I was on top of him. Starting around Sept 17 i started to get some kind of light bleeding. it was light red with a little bit of bright red and some brown, but incredibly light. its not spotting, but not flowing either. I thought it was my period so i put a pad on but i the bleeding never leaked into my pad. I would mostly notice it when i would wipe and a couple of times on my underwear.. i did notice ONE spot on my underwear one of those days.Then around Sept. 23 it just completely stopped. I still haven’t gotten my period and i didn’t even begin to worry about it until right now. I have no pregnancy symptoms like sore breasts or nausea. No fatigue and no pain. I was feeling kind of bloated last week but now its all gone. So i was wondering if anyone knew what it might be? Pregnancy? Or anything else? Tomorrow is the last day, and if it doesn’t come after that then that means i missed it for this month. If i don’t get it tomorrow when should i take a test? Someone said that that bleeding could have been my period. But i have never gotten a period that light and that early in my life. And the bleeding lasted about a little over a week. My period only lasts about 3-4 days. I was supposed to get my period this week but i have nothing. No bleeding at all. i Havent been stressed out or anything like that. Thank YouI stated my age because the answers may be different for someone who is 16 yrs old or someone who is 30 yrs old.Yes. no matter what i am planning to keep it. I could never see myself getting an abortion, no matter what anyone says.
A: Okay, you need to take a test. Some women don’t have symtoms and mine didnt start until 8 weeks pregnant. Take a test, and you’ll have a better answer than anything I can say to you. Good Luck! xx
