Breakthrough Bleeding? Early Period? Implantation bleeding? Combinded with nausea
Thu, 10-18-2012 - 8:41am

My birth control was switched this month, but the estrogen levels stayed the same. This week is my second week of my cycle, and I started bleeding on Tuesday. Still bleeding today. Slight cramps very low in my uterus, but nothing major.Flow is pretty light. I did miss my pil on Sunday, but to be completely honest, Im very bad with my pills and normally have to double up atleast 2x a week. But Ive been on the pill for almost 2 years and this is the 1st time Ive had this weird bleeding early. I know that missing can cause breakthrough

In addition this week I have been very nausous. Started feeling sick on Sunday and it went away. Was nauseous again Monday night through Tuesday night. Felt fine yesterday but naseous again starting early this morning. I have not thrown up, but just have that uncomfortable feeling in stomache/bad taste combo. Not sure if the naseua has anything to do with this weird period or my new pill???

Additionally started a new diet 2 weeks ago. Could that have anyting to do with this?

Or, is it possible that this could be implantation bleeding? Not sure when that normally starts, and if I would be having morning sickness already by that point

No other weird signs that would lead my to believe its pregancy

Has anyone else had this happen? Was it just the change in the pill? Obviously my period is not yet late, so too early to take a test.

Hi there,

It sounds to me like you are experiencing issues related to the change in your birth control.  Implantation bleeding usually happens right before your period is expected (so often times women think they are just getting an early period).  Your question about morning sickness is a bit more difficult to answer as it is different for everyone.  Generally morning sickness symptoms appear 5-6 weeks after the start of your last menstrual period.

If you continue experiencing the spotting and nausea, you may want to call your doctor to let them know what's going on. Let us know what you find out and how you are feeling!
