Hi
Welcome to HealthcareMagic
Yes oral contraceptives can change menstrual pattern if you dont take them regularly. As you started pills late in this cycle i doubt about its efficacy. As you had unprotected intercourse in this cycle and pills were not very effective due to delayed use , chances of pregnancy are there. Kindly do a urine pregnancy test to rule out pregnancy. consult your doctor. Take care.

Hi Doctor, it is been three months since I have a surgery to remove only the fibroids. After my first menstrual cycle I had 7 days of bleeding which I had to wear pads. It was not heavy, when I went to see my gynecologist he put me on birth control. I began taking it two days before my menstrual period. I can say I do not have my period, but I still have painful cramps. Why do you think because I am very concerned about that.

On december 29 i had blood and i guess its withdrawal bleeding cause its brownish in color.. and lasted for about 4 days. How can it will affect my menstruation cycle? Thankyou!
