No, it's not normal. You should go to the doctor, you may need to get a new kind of pill. And you should use a back up method of Birth Control in the meantime. You pill may not be working and you could get pregnant. Just went to doctor today and asked very same question. She said that it is not uncommon. She said your system will eventually adjust and there should be nothing to worry about. I asked her if my chances of getting pregnant are higher when this happens. She said no that as long as I take pills every day at or around same time, I am 99% protected regardless and don't need another form of birth control as a backup.

Can you have breakthrough bleeding after you stop taking the pill?

In terms of word choice, "breakthrough bleeding" is bleeding when you expect the hormones in birth control to stop bleeding. On the other hand, "withdrawal bleeding" is what you have when you stop taking active pills -- whether temporarily, as during the pill-free interval, or when you quit the pill altogether. It's normal to have a withdrawal bleed after stopping the pill. You can expect a normal period in four to six weeks.

Is it normal for you to have longer then usually periods the first month you start your birth control?

Not necessarily. This longer than usual period that you are experiencing could be breakthrough bleeding. Breakthrough bleeding is an unwanted side effect that sometimes occurs during the first 3 months of starting your birth control. Breakthrough bleeding also usually occurs before your period, so it seems as if your period is lasting longer than usual.

When you're pregnant and you start your period does that mean you miscarried?

No, bleeding or having a period during pregnancy does not mean you have miscarried. Bleeding during pregnancy, mostly early pregnancy, are actually very common. As a matter of fact, it isn't technically a period. This bleeding is known as Breakthrough Bleeding, and it looks a lot like a period. Breakthrough Bleeding happens when the hormones that control your menstruation cycle break through the pregnancy hormones. Bleeding can also occur as the fertilised egg naturally implants itself into the wall of your uterus. This happens around the time your period is due and, again, looks like a period, even though it isn't. Don't worry. It's very natural for a woman to be alarmed when they have spotting or bleeding during pregnancy. But it is all very natural. If you are really concerned, have a chat to your doctor or midwife. Good luck and enjoy the pregnancy while it lasts.

Are you supposed to have a period while the NuvaRing is inserted?

Not necessarily. You can start your first ring with or without your period. If you start without your period, you should use a backup method, like condoms or abstinence from vaginal sex, for the first seven days. After that first month, you should put in the NuvaRing right on schedule, whether you're bleeding or not. For a large proportion of Nuva Ring users, that means inserting the next month's ring while you're still bleeding. It's not unusual to have breakthrough bleeding during the first few months of use.
