BC prescription thechnicality

Hi all,

I've been talking Junel Fe 1/20, but the prescription was running out, so when I had my last annual I asked the clinician to write me up a new one. She wasn't the one who filled my last one, but I had my packet on me and gave it to her to fill the prescription out off of.

I just went in to get it filled and, apparently she wrote it for Junel Fe 1.5-30, and they gave me three packets at once.

First of all- What? Why did she randomly decide to change it? Especially since I specifically gave her the exact original prescription because I like it and don't need her changing it. Also I thought they weren't allowed to give me more than one packet at a time?

Second of all, before I start getting PMS-y and bitchy at the health services for hiring her (she's new)- does it really make that much of a difference?

I mean, yes, I'm annoyed that she's write out a prescription for a different strength when I specifically handed her the original, and my preferred, prescription, but is it that much of a difference that maybe I won't notice it? I mean, it's a little bit cheaper (it came out to $10 less/packet) than my old prescription so yay, but I'd rather not mess with my hormones more. I mean, since I've gone on birth control my sex drive is pretty much fine, my acne isn't as bad as it was (not sure if it's the BC, but I don't want to chance it), and my boobs got bigger! All good things that I don't want to change.

Also, bonus question- I'm having my withdrawal bleed, and I had apparently run out of regular tampons, so I used a Super instead, even though I'm pretty sure it's not at all justified. Does it make a difference or should I go change it omgrightnow!

Thank you all!
