The bleeding still hadn't stopped by the time I finished the last pill of my pack so I decided to take a break and have a period 21 days earlier than planned.
Now I am wondering
if it's perhaps a better idea to take shorter breaks between 84 day cycles (like 84 days on, 5 days off instead of 7 days off).
I read on the web that sometimes too long of a break allows your uterus to start building up a lining like it naturally would if you weren't taking b/c. If I shortened the between times to 5 days, do you think this would help to eliminate the chances of another major
breakthrough bleed like the nearly 4 week long one I just experienced?
I am very fond of this method of taking b/c pills, so I hope that this experience was just a hiccup. I'd honestly prefer to just take them with the 7 day break, but I really don't want to go through this again.
Anybody who's on Seasonale or Seasonique or who uses this continuous method...has this happened to you? Did it eventually correct itself and become normal?
