You could have missed a pill or taken one late causing your period to start early. This is the only thing I can think of. Or if it's a new kind of Birth Control for you, it may not be the right kind. Talk to the doctor that prescribes it for you and they will help yo find a better kind.


Sometimes that happens especially when you first start taking birth control pills. It is called 'breakthrough bleeding' a side effect of the pill.

This has happened to me twice in the 9 months I've been on my pills, once in the 5th month, once this month. I've never missed a pill and take them pretty well on time and both of these times have been weeks where I've been under a consideral amount of stress. At first I was concerned but after talking to my doctor she said that it's completely understandable for your body to be unbalanced under stress. So if you're stressed and you notice you get spotting/bleeding (in the last week of the active pills) then that's most likely what it is.

Yes. If you stop taking your birth control you are at higher risk of becoming pregnant than before you started taking it. Especially at a younger age. I was on birth control and quit taking it for a week and now I am four months pregnant.

Depends. If you just got your birth control and you have never had it before.. What you do is take it the Sunday after your period. For example. You started on a Monday. You ended on a Thursday. You take your birth control that Sunday. If you have taken birth control before.. Yes, you take it. Whether you are on or off.
