User :   i normally get my period on the third of every month i got it on the 2nd in may.. then again on the 18th.. then again on the first of this month.. and last night i started bleeding again.. but really like really spotting and its more of a really dark brown. When i went to the doc on the 20th of may they said it could be stress and put me on birth control to help. But i couldnt remember to take it every day so i missed a couple days. also ive been having unprotected sex. What could this mean?
Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :   let me read
User :   ok
Doctor :   missing the birth control pills and having unprotected sex means the efficacy of the birth control pills will be less
Doctor :   the chances of the contraceptive failure will be more
User :   Would that explain why im bleeding once again?
User :   ive been bleeding on and off since the 2nd of may
Doctor :   to control the irregularity of bleeding the contraceptive pills are given
Doctor :   and if you don't take it regular the irregular bleeding will continue
User :   the dark brown blood is nothing to worry about?
Doctor :   apart from irregular bleeding what other symptoms do you have
User :   Just a lot of cramps and a headache
Doctor :   than nothing to worry with the color
Doctor :   the concern is irregular bleeding
User :   I had mild displasia on my cervix a few months ago but my last pap came back normal so i was worried maybe this meant they were back or something
User :   ive never had irregular bleeding so this is all new to me
Doctor :   once the pap smear which had shown dysplasia and now its normal you need not worry
Doctor :   birth control pills are given here to control the irregular bleeding and regularize it
User :   ok so ill refill the birth control and go from there.. any chance i could be pregnant?
Doctor :   this irregularity will happen in every women life at some stage, so need not worry
Doctor :   when did the last bleeding occur ?
User :   last night
User :   its started again last night
Doctor :   than as of now there is no chance of pregnancy
User :   ok
User :   thanks a lot for your help
Doctor :   continue to take regularly the pills for 3 months and report to your doctor about the progress
User :   ok i was just about to ask that thanks!
