Does that effect anything? I wanted to skip my period this month so instead of taking the sugar pills, I jumped straight to a new pack. This is when I switched from Tri- Sprintec to Trinessa because it is what my doctor just called in to the pharmacy for me. Unfortunately, I did forget to take the new pack right away but I doubled up the following day. Today, I am spotting a little. I think I confused my body. I normally take the pill at night before I go to sleep around 11:00 pm, but once I saw that I was spotting, I took another one earlier, specifically 1:30 pm, in order to prevent my period from fully coming. Will this stop my spotting today? Is it safe to have sex? Please let me know as soon as possible! Thank you for your time.
They’re the same birth control just different names. Many pills have multiple names but have the same ingredients. Anytime you miss a pill it can confuse your body so spotting isn’t a surprise. But also missing a pill can increase chance of pregnancy. I’d use a backup (condom) for a few days just to be sure.
