Hi there, im asking on behalf of my girlfriend...i am actually more worried than her.
The problem is, she has been on the pill for about 4 months, we have been sexually active, we've only ever had sexual experiences with each other, no history of STI's ect., everything has been fine.
Today, about 2 weeks into this months' pill cycle she had some bleeding, a reasonable amount, enough to cover her undies. She isn't meanth to get her period for another 2 weeks, we are really worried about what this could be!!
Espescially since we had sex 2 weeks ago, the night on which she took her FIRST pill of a cycle in the morning. I didn't know this was risky for possible pregnancy, but she then told me it is in the first 7 days of starting a new cycle of the pill.
Is this some sort of miscarriage?? Pregnancy related thing?? Help!
Please help us allay our fears, thankyou

It sounds like she may be experiencing breakthru bleeding which sometimes occurs with the use of birth control pills. If this should happen to continue I would suggest that she have an evaluation by her physician. She may need an adjustment in the dosage or another brand altogether.
