I have been on Tricyclen lo birth control pills for about a year and a half now. I have never had any bleeding until recently. About a week and a half to two weeks after my menstrual period (and yes i do take my placebo pills!) i got light pink bleeding that only lasted for two days along with some cramps and back pain. The bleeding was only there when i went to the bathroom and wiped (it was definitely not enough to wear a pad or even a panty liner) and I was wondering if it would be implantation bleeding or breakthrough bleeding? I have taken my birth control everyday but i'm really bad for taking it at the same time, and i also am sexually active. My partner always finishes inside me because I figured I was fully protected with the pill... can anyone help me out here?
(Updated 16/07/12) I ovulated about 6 days ago now. The bleeding started 4-5 days after. I get ovulation pains even though I am on bc although uncommon i know that it is ovulation pain and it happens every month. I did have a mild yeast infection and used the vaginal pill to help it but the day it started I was on an overnight shift at work, so I took my pill earlier than normal, about 5 hours earlier and the bleeding started that day?
(Updated 17/07/12) The bleeding lasted 2 and a half days and seems to be gone now, i also noticed a weird discharge but pushed it off to be the pill draining out the infection (sorry if thats tmi!) The cramps seem to be gone also, and i vomited a couple times yesterday out of the blue. I plan on taking a hpt tomorrow, will it show up properly?
Hi and welcome! It seems likely that you were experiencing breakthrough bleeding since you are on the pill and haven't missed any. Of course, anything is possible so taking a test is probably a good idea. Good luck and let us know how it turns out!

I know you dont ovulate on the pill but i get stabbing like pains every month on the week of my ovulation, i researched a little and I thought I could be a rare case where it does allow me to ovulate. My period is due in six days (on the 24th of july). Ive also had a couple of yeast infections before and never bled, although I never used the pills to get rid of it.
I took a test last night and it was negative. The bleeding came back today, though. Im going to take another test closer to my period and if its negative ill probably see a doctor about changing bc pills . Thanks for your advice !
