What causes vaginal bleeding after discontinuation of birth control pill?
I was taking the pill levlin ed, I got my period last week as I was up to the White pills, on the Saturday I took a yellow pill and had unprotected sex and he finished inside me, same on the Sunday I took the yellow pill we had unprotected sex and he finished inside again, but on Monday I stopped taking the pill, we had sex again on Wednesday with him finishing inside again, I havnt taken any pills since Monday, on Wednesday afternoon I started having light bleeding and by Thursday it got a little heavier, after all that my question now is can I still get pregnant even tho I am bleeding now??
need more information
welcome to healthcare magic. I understand your concern.
I am Dr.Srilatha, a gynaecologist, and I need more information for better suggestions. So if you can answer the following questions:
1)Since how long you are on hormonal pills?
2)Why did you stop taking pills from monday?
3)Are you planning for pregnancy?
The bleeding might not indicate pregnancy.
Kindly let me know the information.
Looking forward to hear from you.
I stopped taking it as we are trying to get pregnant
There might be hormonal imbalance
Hello dear,thanks for the information.I understand your concern.
In my opinion the stoppage of pills in the middle might have created some hormonal imbalance leading to bleeding.
As you are not on pills for longer period the valuation might start soon after stopping the pills.
This would have occurred if the new pack was not started at all.
But as some irregular stoppage of pills occurred it might take some time for the hormonal imbalance to get to normal.
Mostly by next cycle the regularity starts and once regular cycles occur chances of conception increase.
Anyway it might not be possible for pregnancy while you are bleeding.
But consult doctor if irregular bleeding continue.
Hope this satisfies your query.
Feel free to discuss further.
