Hey you guys! So I am freaking myself out right now. I follow a strict calendar of my periods. I am currently on the Xulane BC patch. I have been on it since March 2017. I change it exactly the way it prompts you to. My last normal period 1/4/18 - 1/7/18. My fiance and I had unprotected sex on 1/1/18 and 1/16/18. I was due to start my period for 1/29/18. Instead I started have abdominal cramping on 1/23 and 1/24, on 1/25 I started having small amounts of pinkish blood. I bleed until 2/4/18. During the last few days of the spotting the blood turned to a brownish/dark red color and had a slight odor to it along with abdominal cramping. I took a Pregnancy test on 2/2/18 and it came back negative. I took another one this morning 2/8/18 and it was also negative. Should I take another one If so when should I take it? I wondered if my BC messed my hormones up and if that was the cause of the bleeding. I called my OB on 2/1 and left a message and never received a call back.

Hi and welcome! Sorry you're going through this--not knowing what is going on is the worst. If 1/16 was the last time you had sex, I think a pregnancy test would be accurate at this point. If it was negative yesterday, I would probably trust it. Not sure what exactly is going on, but it may be that your bleeding was, in fact, your period, even if it was odd or different than normal. If it were me, I'd probably continue with the patch and see what happens this cycle, but if you are really concerned (you know your body best), you can always try again to get in touch with your OB, or make an appointment. Good luck!
