... flow with lots of cramps, I started four weeks early. Has this ever happened to anyone before? It's been eight days now with a light flow
Seasonique is designed to give you only a few (is it 3 or 4?) periods a year but this isnt foolproof. Some women experience breakthrough bleeding occasionally. As long as you took all your pill and took them all on time with no missed periods, you should be fine as far as coverage. Remember that certain antibiotics reduce the effectiveness of birth control pills so you have to use back up protection (condoms) the whole time you are taking the antibiotics and for seven days after you finish. Some women will experience breakthrough bleeding when she is on antibiotics. If you arent on antibiotics and you havent missed any pills then it is nothing to worry about, it is just breakthrough bleeding. It doesnt always need a reason, it just happens. Just keep taking your pills as they come in the pack. Do NOT alter your schedule no matter what your body is doing, bleeding or not bleeding. The best way to regulate your cycle it to keep taking your pill. You can use an OTC pain reliever for the cramping.
