Hello Dr Thomas
I have been taking ortho tricyclen lo for a while now and have never missed any pills. I am currently on my sugar pills and it is running late by 3 days. Should I be worried as I had a few spots of blood and one clot come out, and now it has stopped again.
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 1 year ago.


No I don't think this means anything and can be normal.

To be sure, simply do a home pregnancy test.

They are accurate.
