I have an appt with my GYN next week, so I will ask her also, but I wanted to know if any of you ladies knew anything about this.
I am on Seasonique, a three-month cycle BCP. I think the three months is a little long for my body to adjust to. I don't have any other side effects, except some breakthrough bleeding usually in the third month before I am scheduled for my period. Not a lot, just spotting for about 4 weeks before the placebo pills. This is the first time I didn't start spotting until 2 weeks before the placebos. Anyway, after 4 weeks of spotting, usually by the time I get to the placebos, there's nothing left to shed, and I don't get a proper period. My doctor has said before that the breakthrough bleeding is just a side effect and it isn't dangerous unless it's heavy, which it isn't. My only concern is that if I'm not bleeding during the placebos, am I unprotected for that whole week? Does anybody have any insight?
