Hi, I hope this is finding you well. I have a few questions when you get a chance. My situation, I went off of Seasonale about 5 weeks ago. I finally got my period. My boyfriend and I have been careful, since I am not covered by any methods now. However, I am nervous because the doctor told me after going off the pill I would get my period in two to three weeks, it took close to five. A nurse explained to me that because I was taking seasonale consistently with out any breaks, it has taken a toll on an allready irregualr period schedule that I have. My last cycle was 38 days before taking the pill and this one was the same after stopping the pill. My concern that it was only for three days straight so far. Two days of heavy bleeding and one day of spotting. Could this be because my cycles are still out of wack due to the pill. I always spot a little two to three days before and then I bleed pretty have for a few days. I bled heavy only for two days and I did spot a few days before. I just want to make sure that this was my period. I had cramps and bleeding. I think I am scaring myself about reading about implanting bleeding, but my boyfriend and I are so careful. Also another question..I got a new birth control method, a generic form of ortho-tri. It is called Tri-Previfem. The pharmesist says it is the same. It is both norgestimate and ethinyl estradiol, on the pamphlet. Thanks for all of your help. Heather

It sounds like this is your period showing up. Yes, it is a bit 'out of whack' due to the hormones/withdrawal, but this doesn't sound like implantation bleeding, which not only doesn't always happen, but is also usually just a bit of spotting, not heavy bleeding.
What is it that you want to know about the Tri-Previfem? You'll have to start a new topic, 'cause you can't reply in this one, but just make that your topic name.
