    Late period and starting new birthcontrol pack

    Hi, So I really messed up the cycle of period in the last couple months due to stress from school (last semester before graduating). I usually have a pretty regular cycle. I'm on my sugar pills this week. I started them on monday. Usually about 3 pills in to the pack (wednesday) I get my period and usually lasts until Sunday. And I would start my new pack of birth control pills. I have a period tracking app that tracks when i start and when i end. It indicates that i "start" my period....

    So desperate for some help in the right direction...

    Hi, I’m not sure where to start, but am extremely desperate for answers.. and helping someone may have some insight. Sometime around early December 2017 I noticed some extremely heavy vaginal discharge upon waking up one morning. It was a light yellowish color, but not entirely uncommon for me. Over the next week, discharge became increasingly more heavy. No odor, maybe a slight itch. Discharge is extremely sticky and thick.. stringy, not at all chunky.. varies in color to white to yellow to green....

And it will come for how ever long it wants (longest was two weeks) and it comes at a constant flow, and i bleed almost every time i have intercourse and sometimes even after. I am a carrier for hemophilia and i dont know if this could be a symptom of carrying it? Please tell me some answers, thank you.

    Birth control on first day of period with no period....

    I'm 32 years old just started back on birth control.(after 4 years being off) I took my first pill the first day of my suppose to be period. I was cramping and have sore breast as if my period was starting. The 2nd day took my pill at 9am, like the previous morning, still no period, just a little blood when I wiped. Is it normal for my period to be delayed or have no period at all since I'm just starting the pill?

    On combined birth control pill (marvelon) In my last pack, I missed 3 days worth of pills and began bleeding. I only had 5 left to go in the pack (not including the missed pills - from the day I realised) and took the advice in my leaflet that came with them to not have the 7 day break and instead continue with the next pack immediately. Since the bleeding started, I have been very good with my pills and taken them every day. However, it is now day 8 of what feels very long and drawn out (although....

    Switching Birth control brand question.

    About a week ago I got a different brand of generic birth control than i usually get. Ive been having unusually bad side effects, cramping, nausea, migraines, and depression/anxiety. And im 8 days into this pack and finally recieved the normal brand i get and want to switch. Should i start from where i am on my current pack on the new one, or just start from the beginning of the new pack?
