birth control frustration!

SERIOUSLY, so tired of all of these issues Sprinterec is giving me!! First breakthrough bleeding the first week on it(my fault for missing one pill and taking it the next day). Then, 4 days of breakthrough bleeding, as I am stacking packs(doctor ordered it). Had that breakthrough bleeding the first week of my second pack(which if I wasn't stacking, it would of been my inactive week). Then, after sex on Saturday, breakthrough bleeding. Stopped for a day, then after having a BM(sorry, TMI) yesterday, happened again. I was brief and had nothing the rest of the night and into today, until I had a BM again. AH!

After emailing the doc back and forth, decided to go in next Wednesday(soonest I could get in).

I don't know what is going on. Is this low progesterone again? ( I switched from Microgestin to sprinterec because of that) or something else?

I know I won't find many answers here, just venting. Maybe someone has experienced this before?

I haven't had the same experience as you but I have definitely been through having a horrible reaction to certain B.C. I understand how frustrating and even scary  (for me personally) it can be. Best advice I can give is to go with your instincts. Listen to your body and your gut intuition. I hope you're able to find the best B.C. for you.

Thanks. The thing is this has happened even before I switched, so I don't know if it's the BC or something else. I didn't think much of it, since I thought it was part of the whole birth control not working well thing. Hopefully the doctor can find a solution. I am so sick of this!
