I am on ortho tri-cyclen and have been for the past 5 months. This month I had to take erythromycin for 10 days in the middle of my cycle. I had sex during that time but I didn't use any back up method except withdrawl. I know that was dumb but I can't change that now. Now at least I'll use something next time. Now my period was due yesterday and I got it on time, but it is really thick and a deep red. I also had some clotting which might be normal. But this month I had unusual cramp which was the same as I used to get before I started taking birth control. I'm not sure if that is because the antibiotic broke down the pill and it didn't help with my cramping or I might possibly be having a very early miscarriage. Everyone always said when you have a miscarriage, you'll know but if its this early I don't know if I would know the difference between a miscarriage and a heavy period with a more cramping than usual. I would appreciate all the advice I could get.
