Spotting while Ovulating
Hi there

I am a Warfarin patient and have been spotting but am ovulating. Could you please advise me what I should do?You answered one of my previous questions about birth control by saying I must go on the injection.Which injection should I go for because I am on Warfarin?

Thank you and regards,

It is not uncommon to spot at the time of ovulation due to the change in hormones at this time. It should not last more than two days. In terms of the injection, there are two options - Nuristerate which is given every two months andf Depo provera which is three monthly. There is a longer return to fertility with Depo.
