I'm on Loestrin 24 birth control for over a year now. I had sex about a week ago, with a condom and I always take my pills at the same time, never missing a day.
Today when I woke up I had dried dark blood on my underwear and have cramps now. And when I went to the bathroom hugeee clumps of dark red blood were at the bottom of the toilet. I've been on my new pack for over a week and this shouldn't be happening. But it's been about four months since I've had sex.
What's going on here? Should I switch pills and ask my gyno why I have cramps when I'm not on my period? This is annoying
Re: Dark red blood coming from vagina, not a period?
Okay. Until a few months ago my body would be normal, no abnormal bleeding, and my periods would start on a friday and completely stop in two days. Now when I get on placebo pills on a wednesday and start a new pack sunday, I continue bleeding until three days after, wednesday.
