I am on the birth control pill and this is the first time this has happened. I have been bleeding for over a week now and am 2 weeks early in my pills. I have been taking them regularly and had just gone to the gynecologist a week prior to this occurance and my pap smear came out to be normal. Does anyone have any ideas what this could be from. I have a lot of stress now. Could it be stress related?

Re: Bleeding

There could be a million causes. Stress is a very common culprit and it is often very difficult for a doctor to pinpoint. It would still be a good idea to call and let your doc know what is happening to you.

Other thoughts:

Did your doctor change your birth control at your recent visit? Did you miss any pills or take them at a different time? Sometimes this kind of bleeding will happen on the pill. It usually won't stop until after a 7 day placebo break from the pills. Ask your doc if you can just stop the pack now or if you just need to tough it out through the whole pack.

Do you eat a lot of soy? That's another cause of abnormal bleeding that I have read about here that isn't very serious or difficult to fix and many doctors often don't ask about it.
