First Time On Bc And There's Bleeding Already!

User Profile
Sorry to sound like a broken record, but I have a question about 'Breakthrough bleeding'.

I recently started 'Tri-cyclen lo (21pills)' on the 22nd of April and I just started the bleeding around the 2nd or 3rd of May. How long does the bleeding itself last before I should start getting worried? I know it'll be around for a couple months due to my body adjusting to the pills, it's just the bleeding time that erks me. I have my boyfriend coming up and we haven't really seen eachother in a while, I don't want this to get in the way. (I sound so harlot like Sad)

Anyways that's all I'm curious about, thank-you so much for your time! Very Happy

Yeah that sucks. The bleeding thing is hard to say, it really depends on who you are. . .

However, there is nothing wrong with having sex while you have your period.... some people even say it is better. And you can take a shower together afterward if it is too messy or something.

*nods* Ahh Okay ...

I was just worried be cause I just had my period on the 19-25th and I started bleeding again on the 3rd or so and had a 'ftw?' moment, I didn't know if it was normal or not and how long it last etc.

Anyhoo, We might do that, he's not big on the blood bit... but we'll see.

Thanks a bunch! Very Happy
