... bleeding went to the hospital and they don't know if its a period or and infection I'm not bleeding like i do wen i use to have periods. i didn't miss any doses is this normal?
Irregular bleeding is a normal side effect of birth control pills like Errin. This drug reduces the build up of intrauterine lining so bleeding can be lighter than periods prior to taking the contraceptive. Here is what the FDA says:
The most common side effect of POPs is a change in menstrual bleeding. Your periods may be either early or late, and you may have some spotting between periods. Taking pills late or missing pills can result in some spotting or bleeding.
You should be having periods though. They say to see your gynecologist if you do not have a period within 45 days from the start of your last period so I recommend that you see your gynecologist. It is more concerning that you havent been bleeding!
