Any advice would be appreciated?

I go see my OB/GYN on Monday. Im just asking if possibly anyone may have any suggestions on what may be wrong. Maybe give me a heads up on what to expect? I am on the birth control pill. I have had my period 3 times this month and 2 of them were after the scheduled period but before the next scheduled period. When i finish each one, I have a yellowish discharge and a strange odor. But then i start a few days later again. I have taken 2 in home pregnancy tests. They both came back negative. Is being pregnant a possibility? Or is there maybe something else going on? Has anyone had this problem before and what was your diagnosis? Im just nervous! No bashing please. Just asking for suggestions and possibilities. Thank you!

  • I don't think it sounds like pregnancy. It could be that your pill doesn't have enough hormone in it to correctly regulate your cycle. As for the discharge, I would guess some sort of yeast infection? Best of luck to you - I'm sure you have nothing to worry about.

  • I had a similar problem once. I was on Alesse after I stopped breastfeeding my son, and I started having problems like that. It was weird, because I was on Alesse before I had my son as well and had no problems. But after a few months of being on it again, I started to hate it. I was having my period for up to 3 weeks out of the month, sometimes it would come and go, and sometimes it just... never ended. And then I'd only have about a week off. It was exhausting, frustrating, and expensive! It sounds like that could be part of your problem. I suggest trying out a different pill. My doctor said there was just too much of something in Alesse that was causing my body to do that. So I went on Tricyclen Lo and have had no problems. As for the rest of the problem, I agree, it could be some sort of bacterical thing. Bacterial Vaginosis maybe? It's similar to a yeast infection... nothing antibiotics can't fix!
