    My girl is having a problem with vaginal bleeding in the morning. She got on the pill a few months ago. Had her normal period and i know she missed a day so her mom told her to take two the next day. That's when it started.

    She called the doctor and the doctor said it was from doubling the dose and it would go away. Its been like 2 weeks and hasn't went back to normal. I keep urging her to see the doctor but her moms bein reluctant with her.

    We always use condoms and I don't cum inside her even on the pill.

    I have a lot of friends who have fucked up spotting/periods because they're on one of the really low-dose pills, but just to be sure, go see a doctor. Could be something you want to know about ASAP.

    Or it could be from really good sex :tongue:

    she may have a problem with her cervix
    Get to the doctor to get it checked straight away.
    No messing about - ok?
    This could be serious or nothing - get it diagnosed as nothing serious.

    I agree with what the others have posted, she need to go to the doctor.
    But one thing I must say, and this is with any medication, do not double up the next day when one has been skipped. Birth control pills are synthetic hormones. These hormones regulate cycles. It doesn't take much to upset hormonal balance.

    One question the doctor will ask- is she cramping with her bleeding or is it painless? It could be the difference in what test may/may not be ordered.

    Good luck

    Sorry, cinnamon, but you do need to double up the next day or take it as soon as it's missed. As with any meds, follow the instructions in the packet. If they say double, do: if not, don't.

    Go to the doc to get checked.

    she doesn't need to go to the doctor just yet. if the bleeding continues then she should head in for a check up. i am guessing she had an exam before she was prescribed BC?

    she missed a day, doubled a dose before the bleeding started. with most low dose BC spotting or break through bleeding is very common during the first 3 months. since she had a mild wobble in the hormone levels her body needs time to reset it's self. the bleeding should stop after her next period.

    the bleeding more noticeable in the morning because laying down allows for the blood to collect.

    please don't freak out and worry yourself or your girlie. her doctor already told her she just needs to wait it out. if you have more questions just google a bit. there are a heap of message boards out there related to bc. some have medical staff available to answer your questions.

    I read that her mum is reluctant for your girlfriend to see the doctor. Is it possible her mum is feeling a little anxious because it co-insided when she advised her totake a double dose.

    I totally agree with the rest go and seek the advice of her doctor, even if only to put both your minds at rest. Most good practices these days have nurse practitioners who deal with contraception advise and issuses.

    Hope all goes well, I sure there is nothing to worry about, but go along anyway. Keep us posted, afterall we are your LPSG family and here to support you also.

    Cinnamon & Meerin: Do different BCPs say different things about doubling up or not? I thought they usually say "take it when you remember and then again when your next pill is due."

    Every BC I've been on has said take it as soon as you miss it or take 2 at the next dose if it's not missed until then. There may be different instructions, but I've never come across them.

    Sounds like break-through bleading - that can happen when you forget, especially if she just started taking the pill. Just warn her that if she does double up all at once.. it could make her VERY NAUSEOUS. Try to take one immediately, and then the other a short while later. I used to forget all the time and that would happen. If she is really worried, then go see the doc, but I would bet that's all that's going on. I think after her next cycle, it will go back to normal. Now, this is in general though. There is always the exception....

    When in doubt check it out...

    You are correct. I checked The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologist website. I no longer have to worry about birth control (FREEDOM!!!) but my doctor told me not to do that (double up). Not sure why, matter a personal preference?

    Just my opinion, but I have to ask :


    WHAT MADE HER CHOOSE THE PILL ?

    There are many types of birth control options nowadays, especially for younger women. (I don't know what country you are in) I recommend doing the research and discussing with the physician as to which is recommended for your woman.

    Just my opinion, but if she's already "forgotten" a pill in the first month, maybe the pill is not the right option for her? Although the pill is 99% effective when taken correctly , I know of several cases where women have gotten pregnant while on the pill (Sometimes missed pills, sometimes other medications they were on that counter-acted the effectiveness of the pill)

    Hmm, I'm not sure why he would. As far as I know, completely missing a pill will throw the hormones out of whack and put you at risk for ovulating. Perhaps it was the type you were on?
    I am looking forward to the day I don't have to worry about it and pills always made me nauseous in the mornings- not a good feeling to have when you aren't trying to get preggers. :tongue: I think I kept EPT in business until I switched to something different.

    I'd give it another week. It isn't life threatening, and it doesn't sound like she's bleeding heavily.
