Thumbs down I hate BCP

I'm not supposed to start my next cycle until Thursday, March 24. This morning (CD19) I woke up to reddish brown spotting with a little bit of clotting. I'm still taking "active" BCP and my last "active" one will be this Friday. Then on Saturday I start with the sugar pills. I hope this is just breakthrough bleeding or hopefully a cyst has ruptured. I usually have breakthrough spotting but nothing like this.

In one instance I was hoping my cycle was starting so I could hopefully get my medicated cycle started early. On the other hand since it wouldn't be a "full" cycle, what if the cysts didn't have enough time to shrink.

I know I'm worrying too much too soon. I've never had a 19 day cycle.

Mandi, I'm no expert, but it sounds like breakthrough bleeding to me. These special anti-cyst TTC break bcps are different, I think they're mostly estrogen and maybe would be more likely to allow a little bleeding? I know I've had it before. Or maybe you're right and it's a cyst jumping ship.

Anyway, I breakthrough bleeding or new cycle, I hope your cysts have both taken a hike.

It sounds like break through bleeding to me too. I used to get it all the time when I was on BCPs, whenever my roommate would get her AF I would have breakthrough bleeding, it was totally crazy. Anyhow, I hope those cysts are long gone and you are on your way to your medicated cycle real soon.
