Difference between period and breakthrough bleeding?

Ok...I feel pregnant but I am starting to think I am crazy! I have had normal periods since I had my first period. I am on BC and this last weekend I was due for AF again. It was so different, very light and about 2 days. I called the doctor and the nurse said it was probably breakthrough bleeding. I thought that only came between periods. Am I crazy? I have taken a hpt and it was negative but it would still be too early for me to test. Thanks

  • Did you just recently start the BC? if so that could have messed up what your "normal" period would be. Test first pee in the morning its the most concentrated.

  • No I have been on it for at least 8 months now. With my first preg, I didn't get a BFP til 6 weeks. I am confused!
