day 36...and still waiting
Thu, 02-21-2013 - 12:17am

So, here's my story:

On 1/1/13, I started bc pills for the first time. But, I was at the end of my cycle (still spotting) when I started them.

Then on 1/16, i started spotting again for a few days then it stopped. My last pill was on 1/25. I didn't start a new pack because

I hadn't started my AF. But, on 2/7 i had slight brown spotting twice on that day. The only symptoms I have had was really sore and heavy breast.

I tested on day 34  and got a neg. Yesterday which was day 33, i had one episode when having a bowel where there was red blood that came out.

Nothing since. hmmm....any one have any insight?

Hi there,

Welcome to the board!  I can understand why you are concerned at this point. 

It is pretty hard to guage what may going on.  I instantly wonder if maybe your body is having a hard time adjusting to the new birth control.  Have you called your doctor and discussed this with them?  Perhaps no period is one of the possible side-effects of the birth control?
