Bleeding which occurs outside the normal menstrual pattern is called breakthrough bleeding and is not a period, while it is not a dangerous condition it be very uncomfortable and frustrating, it can also be a sign of pregnancy so it is always advised to see a doctor or a specialist.
It is usually caused by an excessively thick endometrium (uterine lining) or by hormonal effects of ovulation.
Though breakthrough bleeding can happen at any time it usually occurs when a woman starts taking oral contraceptives or changes between two types of contraceptive. It Is the most common side effect of oral contraceptives. Breakthrough bleeding typically lasts for two or three cycles.
Smoking affects breakthrough bleeding in a number of ways, smokers are more likely to experience it and it tends to last for much longer than with non-smokers.
The bleeding is caused by a change in the level of oestrogen in the body. Oestrogen is a hormone which controls the development and shedding of the endometrium, contraceptive pills contain oestrogen and so when women first use they pill they have an increased level of oestrogen.
For many the solution is to change to another type of contraceptive pill or to take a non hormonal contraceptive, but it is always advised to see a doctor before changing your contraceptive pill.
Non-hormonal contraceptives refer to any contraceptives which do not rely on a pill. The most common type of non-hormonal contraceptive is the condom which is a thin rubber sheath placed over the penis before sex and acts a barrier to the sperm. Condoms are the most common non-hormonal contraception as they protect against STIs as well as pregnancy.
Hi, I think is normal. It happened to me before and that time I thought I'm pregnant (implantation bleeding) but it's too slim chance to be happen for woman. The reason your menstrual changing could be caused by stressed, depressed, mood swing, weather changing, overload work, over exercise, diet,...etc. Please don't worry, do start to monitoring your menstrual & ovulation, drink lot of water and exercise regularly.
I've been doing a lot of research, and if you've recently had sex it could be due to an embryo implatation.
Umm not as such…if you are a teenager then this is perfectly normal. The cycle can be a bit upset at times. It surely takes some time to settle the cycle and your body has to go through a bit of ups and downs to adjust completely to your fertile system. Don't worry!
I had the same problem when I was 15. So, my mom took me to her OBGYN and started me on birth control. That helped along with the severe pms symptoms I was having. Have you tried Birth Control?
I have the same problem my periods has come 11 days early and it's like spots of brown blood, last night I had the pains that you get before your periods and my boobs have been sore for 2 days now. Last week I took one of those pills that are for after sex for 72 hours, has this blood spotting been caused by that pill? I don't know what to think please help.
If you have changed your pill if you are on it that could be a reason why. Sometimes if you are on the pill and have started taking other medication the new medication could cause your period to be early. Sometimes your body just changes, if it happens again I would go to the doctors, just to get it checked out.
We want to get pregnant. For the last two months my periods have been erratic, first I started some light bleeding for 2-3 days 2 weeks after my period, then I had a normal period at the time it was due. This period has started and it seems that I have a 21 day cycle and have been advised that I am likely to conceive from the 14th day after my period has started. However I have also heard that it is from the 12th day up to the 16th day. Which is correct and do you have any tips to maximise our chances of pregnancy?
Some times your menstrual cycle does break and periods occur randomly.It is not to be worry about,but just to be sure take a home pregnancy test.
Yes it possible to be normal if you have sex and drinking cold water it could change the days.... And make sure don't drink any cold water only warm water to help the blood form dead blood...try that if it work...
