[QUOTE=bcpconfusion;5362569]Ok! So I recently started taking Ortho tri cyclen lo for birth control and I am currently on my second month. During the first month I got my period in the middle of the pack, not during the sugar pills. I was worried that it was my period and that the birth control was not preventing ovulation but my doctor assured me that it was just breakthrough bleeding. This month, the same thing happened! I started bleeding on the 14th pill and my doctor still insists its just breakthrough bleeding and that im still protected against pregnancy! The bleeding is similar to a period (if not a little lighter) but it lasts for at least 10 days each month! My doctor also told me to wait until the 3rd month to see if it happens again but i cannot deal with this bleeding its getting in the way of my sex life. Im wondering if anyone else has experienced something like this....[/QUOTE]

I am not on that particular brand but I sympathize with you. I started on bcp again in early Feb. I was put on Minastrin and after first pack switched to Junel. All I do is bleed and pass clots. I don't ever remember doing this when I was younger. I don't have to worry about pregnancy but it is affecting my marriage. Heck, it's affecting anything I want to do because it's so heavy. I don't like the term "break through bleeding". They make it sound light and it's not the case for me. Following your post in hopes others with bleeding on bcp have some positive experiences to hold out hope for.
