Ok I don't normally have issues with my pills or anything but the last couple of days I've had a killer headache and then last night I started bleeding.

Now this pack of pills I've been really wonky with because of getting ready for the holidays I just haven't been on the ball taking them. My BF lives in another state so it isn't like I see him often so pregnancy isn't a concern.

I'm just wondering if the pills could be linked to my headache? I am pretty sure that the bleeding is just due to being wonky with the bcp this month.

Sorry about how long this is I just wanted to make sure I covered what has been going on.

Thanks
Lacie

PS I take Ortho-tricyclen Lo

Sorry about that Lacie.

If you've been inconsistent about taking your pills, than yes, the bleeding is likely from that.

Headaches can be caused from a number of sources. I had frequent headaches for about 2 weeks before we figured out there was a carbon monoxide leak in my car's exhaust system. If they've gone, I wouldn't worry terribly, but if they start up again, contact your doctor.

It was just really odd...my aunt thinks it was due to no caffine for 2 days. I usually have a little bit but not a ton. I don't pop often, but I usually have iced tea with dinner and I was away and didn't have them. So I'm ok now. Wasn't too worried it was just that this is a different bcp then I had taken before so I didn't know it was just something I didn't know about with them.

thanks
