Customer Question

My last period was July 4th and I bled very lightly for 3 weeks. I missed my period and had a negative blood Test 2 days after. I started my birth control back when my period started on the July 4th and I skipped the 4 days placebo pills because I was bled for so long and I started my new pack. And the pills that were suppose to start my period never started it. I just had very light brown discharge only when I wiped. Unsure of what's going on.

Seems like I am always have a few pregnancy symptoms as well.
Expert:  DrHoellering replied 1 year ago.

Hi there, a pregnancy may be possible, but also is an issue of your ovaries and hormones. I would therefore see your doctor. A pregnancy doesn't occur because of skipping placebo pills, but due to forgetting a pill, diarrhoea and other issues. But more likely is a hormonal condition, causing the long bleeding in July as well.

I wish you luck!

Ok thanks. When should I expect my next period? It's been over a week. And when should I suspect a pregnancy?
Expert:  DrHoellering replied 1 year ago.

Since you are overdue for a week now I would test again now, because a pregnancy is possible.

My system tells me you answered, but I can't see an answer. Is there any question open?

Hello sorry. It was negative but still having some symptoms. I am going to see my GYN next week.
Expert:  DrHoellering replied 1 year ago.

Ok, that's what I thought. Maybe something is wrong with your hormones. I hope you are not unhappy now! I would be happy if you gave me a good rating for being here for you. Thank you and all the best!
