Question: spot bleeding


 bald8702 - Wed Oct 12, 2005 10:49 am

For the past three months, for about two days i have been spot bleeding. This is happening aroung the same time of each month. I have been on the patch B/C for over a year now and never had any problem, my periods come on the exact time each month. I show no other signs so I cant match to anything. Or I just havent pay enough attention to know if there has been any other signs. Thanks for your help

My problem is similar...I've been on Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo for the past 3 months, have only had spot bleeding a few times in my life and have always been around the time that my period is due. Problem is that my period hasn't come before the 20-25th for ....probably years now. I've been getting it on the 20-22nd for almost 6 months...it's about 10 days before I would ever expect my period to be due and I've been experiencing menstrual pains (not severe, but I def. recognize them as menstrual pains)...and I've had some light bleeding, off and on all day. The blood has been a dark red to brown...I'm not sure why this is. Any ideas?
