I have been taking BC pills for 2 years now. I started out taking Loestrin Fe 24. About 5 months ago I switched to the generic kind of that. It made me really sick so this month I switched back to the original Loestrin Fe 24. I am having normal symptoms a week before my period like always. I am sexually active, however, my boyfriend and I always careful. He uses condoms and pulls out and I take the pill at the same time everyday. This past week I have felt extremely bloated, gassy, crampy, just normal period stuff. I am now on my second placebo pill of the four. I have white discharge every day. But, today I haven't had any discharge and my vagina is dry and smells like blood. Is this a sign that my period is going to start? Or what is going on? I am very confused and some help would be great!
