Still up today -- but we had kinda a high sodium dinner and still not enough sleep. SOOOOooooooooooooo.....
I'm also having a feminine health problem. So fellas -- TUNE OUT NOW if you're not interested.
When I went to get my hair cut and visit my sister, I forgot to bring my BC with me. I missed two pills. I took the missing ones and my scheduled one when I got back, and the next day I started bleeding. It's been a week and I'm still bleeding. It's not heavy -- well it was the first few days, but it's not stopping either. It's like JUST enough that I don't want to leave it to a liner, but not enough that I really feel like a tampon is necessary either. It's like a steady trickle at this point. It's really getting on my nerves and I'm starting to be worried since it hasn't stopped yet. Should I be worried about this? I'm also wondering if I should just start my next pack back to back without the hormone free pills because do I really need another period already???? This is the last week of hormone pills in my current pack. I really don't want to go talk to a Dr so just some thoughts -- opinions??? Anyone have this experience before? My periods are usually med flow for like 3 days as a reference point I guess.
But anyway -- I'm also kinda wondering if my plumbing being all off schedule is messing with the scale as well.
EDIT: Thank you for your replies!!! I don't have a regular Dr - I go to a Health Dept for BC, so I'm not sure who I would call. I posted to a forum on WebMD that is hosted by an RN, RNP, soooooo I'm HOPING she'll reply and not just a bunch of goobers on the site. hahaha :D The information for my BC (Lo/Ovral) says to take 2 pills a day for 2 days if you miss two days, which may be where I made the mistake, but it doesn't really go into detail about anything like my current situation. I might just try calling a nurse at the Urgent Care place I usually go for when we get sick, etc., if I can't get a reply from the nurse on WebMD. :) Thanks everyone!!!!!!!!!
EDIT AGAIN: She responded and said not to worry, and just finish out this pack normally and start a new one. She said that if the missed pills were in the 3rd active week to skip the placebos, but they were in the first active week (the end of the 1st week) so I am just going to go on as normal. Yay.
