I've been bleeding for a month now..

I don't know if any of you remember my last post on here. I had missed two bcp's in my first week of pills, bled for about a week & a half & then it stopped. I then skipped my period(I figured i'd had enough with bleeding I didn't need anymore!)(mom didn't ask the doctor if I should skip or let my period come) but then in the middle of the first week of the pill pack, I started bleeding again. I've been bleeding since & i'm in the middle of the second week of my pill pack. I've got the full out cramps & everything, i'm tired of bleeding, i'm going through all these tampon packs & i'm in pain from the cramps all the time. Then b/c my hormones are all whacked & i'm nauseuos all the time. Sometimes foods, smells, even like sounds make me even more nauseaus. I'm not up for changing pills(i'm on Yasmin) b/c well, i'm not up for gaining weight hehe! I'm a model & pageant competitor, I can't gain any weight. The reason i'm on the pill is to control my hormones(hormonal imbalance, extremely severe cramps/possible endo from tipped uterus/cysts) & it's worked so well until lately i've had all this bleeding. Will it ever stop? What can I do to make it stop? My mom won't call the doctor she says if it goes on another month she will but it's too early(though I have bled for 2 months before). Any ideas, any knowledge with this? Thanks!!

Hi Blondee15
I'm sorry you are having so much trouble. Could be it is just going to take some time for your system to get accustomed to the pill. Is there a possibility you could be pregnant? When I took the pill I felt pregnant all the time, but I didn't miss any pills. They just affected me that way. Maybe you could put a call into your doctor and ask him/her if this is normal to bleed like this. Let me know how you are doing, sorry I couldn't be much help, and take care!

I would call the doctor's nurse and get her advice. It is not normal to bleed like this for so long. You could be on too strong of BC pills. I don't know if all this bleeding for so long could make you anemic. If your mom won't help you, pick up the phone yourself and call. The women at the gynecologist have heard it all and are sympathetic and understanding. I don't know how old you are, but if you are 18 it is time for you to take charge of your own health. You know how crummy you really feel, why suffer in misery?
