... The thick black thing you describe sounds a lot like clotted blood, which does sit on the tampon. It's nothing to worry about, it's normal to get clotted blood with a period. This is probably just a strange version of breakthrough bleeding after missing your period. The fleshy coloured lumps... ... (1 replies)
... Its not heavy enough to be a period but definatly heavier and more frequent than spotting. I dont take my last pill till saturday so shouldnt have a period until next week.

... I have been on Ortho Novum 1/35 for approx. 6 months. I was on Ovcon 35 for a long time before this but my dr. switched me to ON because they weren't making Ovcon anymore and she said ON was pretty similar to Ovcon. Anyway, ever since I've been on Ovcon and now Ortho Novum, my periods have been very very light. So light that I really only need to use a liner. Also, and... (1 replies)

... I've been using Loestrin 24 Fe for about 6 months now. I do take it at the same time everyday (11pm at night). I switched from YAZ because of all it's controversy. However, with the Loestrin I continue to have spotting (around the second week of active pills) - a side effect I NEVER had with ANY oral contraceptive. To make matters worse, when I'm not taking the active... (1 replies)

... very laid back and easy going. Right at 2 weeks I had breakthrough bleeding I assume. I thought it was my period. Not to be gross but when I went to the bathroom blood literally poured out of me which is usually how my period starts. So I put a tampon in and carried on. The next day it lightened up big time. ...

The patch???
Mar 30, 2006
... didn't help! I had more ruptures! The only good thing about it is that my face cleared up, I had none compared to the few I had before. I did have a lighter period toward the end with some small clots. Until I got off of it. That was the worst. I was off of ortho evra right before all the scare came out. ... (10 replies)
... in March and decided in October to go back on it. I bled the whole first month so I went off for the week to get a period. But I was also 3 weeks late getting my period when I started back on the patch. So my last period was Nov 9th and everything was going good with taking the patch continuously until the week before Christmas. ... (0 replies)
... If you just started the pill, it's normal to have bleeding. Although it's bothersome, it can take several cycles for your body to become adjusted to the pill. Bleeding isn't an indication of decreased effectiveness. All pills contain roughly the same amount of estrogen, but sometimes that small difference is what's needed to control bleeding. (1 replies)
