Wink period every other day for 1 month

I have had my period every other day for the last month. Could this be caused by stress ?. I've been on the pill for years so nothing changed there but i was just recenlyt laid off from my job of 12 years, could this be adding to my non stop period ?

Stress could be a factor, but stress usually delays your period, not cause continual spotting.

You need to see a physician and have a full pelvic examination.

Re: period every other day for 1 month

I agree... You need to talk to the doctor. It could also be as simple as your body has changed some hormonally and you have been on the same bc pill for too long. That happened to me, I was on the same pill for the first 4 years and all of a sudden I started spotting all the time etc... My doctor told me that my body had just changed or become too accustomed to that particular bc pill. It's normal. I switched pills and it stopped pretty much immediately. So... it could just be that.

The other thing I would question is if there is ANY chance you could be pregnant? My friend got pregnant when she was on the bc pill and didn't know for the first month. She even got a light period the first time (had only been pregnant for a week or so at that point she would normally get her period) but they were normally light so she didn't think anything of it. Well all of a sudden the next month she started spottingall the time. Was having to wear a pany-liner constantly. Well when she went to the doctor to complain she ended up finding out she was pregnant and hadn't even known!!!!! She'd been on the pill for years and had never had anything even close to a pregnancy scare even!! There is always that 1% or whatever it is that can get pregnant when on the pill...

So it would be best no matter what the outcome could end up being to just talk to the doctor. You might not evne need to make an appt right away. Just call and ask to talk to your gyno's nurse even. Then they can ask the doc what they think and you might be able to get a new script calledin or something and avoid the gyno appt all together.... Good luck! Let us know what you find out!
