Hi. I'm really worried because I'm currently on Trinessa and I forgot to take two pills in a row about 2 weeks ago. My boyfriend and I did not have sex when I forgot my pills. The week after, I had vaginal bleeding similar to my periods. The week after that I was bleeding brown and was spotting brown. I am still bleeding brown right now. I'm supposed to start my period this week. I'm not sure if its just breakthrough bleeding because I forgot my periods or something more serious? Right now, I'm a student without any insurance, so this sucks!
i have always been told by doctors that bleeding between periods is common on the pill. it's happened to me before, almost as heavy as my period and i went to the doctors only to be told that it was nothing to worry about. well that was a waste of my time! i'm sure you are fine. leave it a while and see how it goes. if this ever happens on a regular basis you should see someone about it, but for now i think it is fine.
Yeah, I am a little bit worried about pregnancy because I did have sex after continuing the pills. However, I just found that if you miss 2 or more pills during your month, you are no longer protected for that month. Bleeding and discharge is not a sign of pregnancy right? I should be starting my period this week, so we will see. :-/
I'm on Tri Nessa which is generic for Ortho Tri-Cyclen. I spoke with a lady at Planned Parenthood and thats the first thing she told that I'm not protected and I need to use other protection. When I missed my pills, I did not even end up taking them. I don't know what I was thinking.
