This past weekend, I've been dealing with traumatic issues. I've been on emotional roller coaster: breaking up with the love of my life and finding out stuff that has caused me so pain. I've been having emotional breakdowns and cry sessions since Early Friday morning.
A little background one me: I've been on Tri-Cyclen Lo birth control since March. And I've been taking my pills almost perfectly.
On Saturday (yesterday), I noticed some brown/bloody discharge. Since I had this before, I only assumed that it was just my body cleaning out it's system. Yesterday was also the last day of my regular pills.
Today, the first day of my placebo pills, I notice I am bleeding. I never had my period this quickly on my placebo week (it's only the first day). I have heard Stress causes breakthrough bleeding, but I'm confused on what this means.
I also want to know if this breakthrough is caused by stress, will I still have my normal period this week since it is my placebo week? Or did the stress cause my period to come early and will be I okay and back to normal once I start my new pack next Sunday?
If anyone can help me what's truly going on, that would be great. I doubt that I'm pregnant because we always used a condom even though I was on the pill. I'm pretty certain the stress is playing pilot on this one but I just don't know the process.
