Will i ever quit bleeding???? Help!!
Ok... On Saturday May 27 i started my period, the next day (sunday) I started my 1st pack of birth control pills, Alesse, per my doctor. Two weeks passed & i my period never ended. So I called my DR & she switched my birth control to Trinessa, b/c she said Alesse was a very low hormone which was probably making me continue. I kept taking the pills like i was supposed to & never missed a dose. I still never quit bleeding (I am pretty weak by now from the bleeding i suppose), so i make an appt. with my DR this Monday that just passed. She put me on Medroxypr (5mg) to take only with the active blue pills (which i am on now). She said i should stop bleeding within 2 days. I am STILL bleeding today (5 days later). Let me throw in that my husband & I are newlyweds (been married 2 months) & this is really getting in the way, if you know what i mean. We have only had sex twice since i have started BC.. Some people have said that the bleeding doesnt bother there sex life, but i really bothers me. Does anyone have ANY clue if this is normal. I know break-through bleeding is very normal, but bleeding nonstop for this long??? I am so frustrated! Another question is I only have 4 more days left to take the Active Blue pill & then i have to take the non-active pill & get my normal period, so my question is: Will it hurt if i skip the non-active pill? My body is already out of whack, could it really hurt anything? I'll probably still be bleeding anyway.. Has anyone ever been thru this or know when i will quit bleeding? I know my DR is probably tired of hearing from me! Any advice would be VERY helpful!! Thanks! (sorry this is soo long!)
