I take Larin Fe 1/20...
I take Larin Fe 1/20 birth control pills. I have been on them since August 2017. I always get my period on Tuesday, which is Day 3 of placebos.I started spotting or possibly my period today, which is Day 1 or placebos. I don't understand what happened. I am going to take new pills starting next week, and want to make sure I am still protected and the switch is seamless.My concern is why spotting or period on day 1 of placebo? This never happened before.Thank you!

This can be due to slight hormonal changes and can occur normally. Spotting can occur anywhere during placebo period so you are still protected and start your new pills next week. It is nothing much to worry about.

Thank you so much! So even though I am starting different pills (Larin Fe made me very anxious) next Sunday and normally would have gotten my period on placebo day three (Tuesday) and def not day one (today), I don’t need another form of BC? It’s a seamless transition even w this weird spotting?

Yes, that is correct.

Please do not forget to click on 5 stars.

Best wishes.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
