... is that normal? Me and my boyfriend are engaged and have been having unprotected sex and have done the pull out method for about a year now and ive never been pregnant. Is it normal to spot on day 10 of trinessa? Or should I be worried?
It is not unusual to have spotting anywhere in the month when starting the Pill. They call it breakthrough bleeding. Some women get it in response to the Pill hormones and some women dont but it is perfectly normal. The pill has hormones which have to supress your natural hormones and sometimes you may get some breakthrough bleeding. This should straighten out in a few months-maybe less. Just keep taking the pills as they come in the pack no matter if you bleed or not. Dont be surprised if you dont bleed at all or much less when it comes time for your period (the inactive week) when you have breakthrough bleeding, you may not have withdrawal bleeding during the inactive week, then again you may have a normal period. It is different for everyone. It is best if you use back up, like condoms, for the first 7 days, better yet, the whole first cycle (pack of pills). It takes time for the pill to work and you may ovulate the first cycle so it is best to use back up. Pulling out before ejaculation is NOT a form of birth control. Men secrete sperm all through the sex act and they cannot control this sperm release. You are very lucky that you havent become pregnant already. Withdrawal method and using no protection at all have almost the same rate of pregnancy. Withdrawal before ejaculation does very little to prevent pregnancy. Dont rely on it for back up or you will eventually find yourself pregnant.
