Bleeding a week after period, on birth control.
I'm on birth control and I just got off my period about a week ago, I missed a couple pills one day but I got back on track. Today I bled, it wasn't normal bleeding either. VERY dark red blood, some sticky dark red blood clots too. About a  month ago me and my boyfriend had sex, but I hadn't re-started my birth control. I've been cramping too, and I never get cramps.

Hello,
This intermenstrual spotting can be due to hormonal imbalance. Other causes can be hormonal imbalance(can be due to PCOS),hypothyroidism,cigarette smoking or underlying Chlamydia infection while on birth control,ectopic pregnancy. You should get it evaluated from your doctor and start with the hormonal treatment.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
