... I had and it made my period come 2 weeks early. My gyno told me that the antibiotics just messed with my cycle and to switch to the 7 inactive pills while I was bleeding before going back and finishing the 10 or so active pills that I had left. I've never missed a pill and there was inly 1 time that I took it more then an hour later. She assured me that I would still be protected from pregnancy, but now this month I started a very light bleeding a week early that's lasted almost 7 days now, and my breasts are really tender. Is my body still adjusting from the antibiotics or is it possible that I'm pregnant?
Hollycrowe4'''' I don't think so as far as pregnant but its best to be safe take the test you can buy at many stores..It is not uncommon what you have said because the B/C are much safer and weaker than 10 years ago they are more like a normal cycle.BUT THE DOCTOR OR PHARMACY UNLESS YOU WENT TO A DIFFERENT ONE.should have told you about the problems with some antibiotic lowering the hormone dose and screwing up your periods..This is a good reason to use one pharmacy so all your medication are in one place IF THIS WAS me i would Call the doctor and let the Dr. or Nurse know what is going on it
s friday so you can reach someone... Have a good day and continue to take your b/c daily until you get ahold of your doctor.Chuck1957
Your gynecologist told you to do that??? That makes no sense. You just keep taking your pills and use a condom, you don't change your pill schedule for bleeding ever. The antibiotic was causing the bleeding but all that means is what I said. You don't stop taking the active pills. What's possible with this bleeding is some confusion as far as your body is concerned. Just keep taking your pills.
