Can a new birthcontrol pill be the cause of color changed period and heavy flow ?

I just started a new birthcontrol this month and it came time for my period. I got it on time but it is kind of an orange dark pink color. The orange is not real bright but it is definitely not the usual color. Everything else is ok except for unusually heavy flow when I go to bathroom. Please help? Is it ok or is something wrong?

Hello Sarah..

Birth control pills do have some effects on the bleeding. Orange colour is not a worry. There can be variance of the type of tissue formed inside. But if the bleeding is heavy and it is causing you weakness then you must see a Gynaecologist to change the type of birth control.

Hi, last night i had sex with my boyfriend. He came 3 times BEFORE we had sex. Unfortunately, the condom broke. The condom was a spermicidal lube condom. He also said that since it was the 4th time he came that it wouldn t have been a lot. I m also on Lo Loestrin Birthcontrol. I ve been taking it for 4 months now, but i had my period a week ago so I just restarted a new pack. My period last month only lasted two days and there wasn t enough blood to even fill a thin panty line. I m still extremely nervous that I could be pregnant. Should I get plan b? Do you think I could still be pregnant even though I don t think im ovulating? Please help me.
