I m 20 years old and my periods are normally VERY regular. I have a lighter period for the entire 5-6 days, but this last time it has been extremely light and a few days with no bleeding..but now it is back and this would be the 9th day. It is so light, but it won t completely stop. I ve recently lost quite a bit of weight for my size. I was around 95/96 and dropped down to 91 in two weeks..could this be why my body is just reacting weird? I have anorexia and have been struggling alot with eating and weight and food..so could that also have something to do with it? Please help me! i m getting worried!!!

My period is 9 days late. I had light bleeding a week before my period was due. I have taken several home pregnancy tests beginning on 5 days late and one blood test at the doctor. All negative. No real symptoms. Possibly mild back cramping but I can t tell if my mind is playing tricks on me. I am very stressed about this. What could be going on?

Hello, I ve been on Levlen ED for a couple of years now. Recently I forgot to take my pills with me and missed two. Because of this, I had a couple of days of withdrawal bleeding and then skipped my next period (which I sometimes do). I have now had brown spotting for about a week and am not due to begin taking the placebo pills for 9 more days. I ll definitely allow my period to come then and not skip it, but I m wondering how long this brown discharge may go on for and could it have been caused by skipping two pills recently?

I'm supposed to take Yasmin contraceptive pill on my first day of menstruation but my question is, when should I start taking it now that I've used Nordette as emergency contraceptive pill? I know that I will be experiencing withdrawal bleeding from the Nordette pills. Should I take my Yasmin on the first day of withdrawal bleeding from Nordette? Please advise.

Good day, Doctor! My girlfriend and I had unprotected sex on the 6th day of her menstrual cycle. Due to anxiety and just to make sure, I made her take 4 pills of Nordette 54 hours after the encounter and another four pills 12 hours after the first dose. It has already been 10 days since she took the ECP and she bled for 1 and a half days. I am wondering if this was withdrawal bleeding, a side effect of the drug she took, or implantation bleeding. The blood discharge was bright red according to her and she has not felt any cramping sensation. What are the chances that she's pregnant? Are we in the clear?
