Hello, KP! How are you?

Yes, that can happen if the new one has a different amount of hormones in it than the other one did. Such side effects can occur for the first 3 months or so, when you start a new OC.

Are there any other questions or concerns?

July 26th 2017 the day of my doctors appointment I got prescribed Sprintec birth control pills. I didn't start taking them until August 6th which was on a Sunday. Today will be my sixth day taking the blue pill. (Week 1) I was suppose to get my period August 9th but never got it. I've missed it, it's been late for 3 days now. My boyfriend and I had unprotected intercourse a few times during the end of the month of July and in the beginning of August around the first week or so. He never climaxed inside of me. He pulled out those few times we did it. My period has been irregular ever since June 2017. I gave birth to my baby in May 2017. My first time being on birth control was in May. I then got back on birth control for my second time. Today August 11th 2017 I noticed a little light brown spot in my underwear. I'm freaking out just a bit and need some answers! I'm wondering when or if I'll get my period? I've been taking my birth control pills consistently. At the same time every day since I've started.

• headaches
• mood swings
• more tired than usual
• mild cramps but pains in my stomach from time to time
• nauseous sometimes
