Patient :I'm on the birth control patch. In the box I have 3 patches I change one every week (on Sunday) at noon. I'll change one this coming Sunday then have a period starting the weekend of January 17/18th. For the past week and a half I've been bleeding, not spotting bleeding. I've had some cramping in the front groin area and my back and last night I got out of the shower and blood just came heavily dripping out. Sometimes it's bright red (fresh) blood other times is brown yucky smelling blood. This morning I woke up with a migraine and horrible cramps what should I do? Thanks!!
