Heavy periods on the pill

Common Questions and Answers about Heavy periods on the pill


Avatar f tn I decided to go on the birth control pill to help regulate the severity (they were regular, just too heavy for me to function), and I now have 2-3 day long periods that are light to moderate in flow with only the occasional clot. You might consider it if the reason you're asking is because it is impairing your life in some way even if it's just comfort.
Avatar f tn The pill can cause a lot of different changes in the timing, length and appearance of a period. That's one of the reasons why people go on the pill. To make their periods shorter or less heavy, etc. I don't think there's anything unusual about your experience because it sounds pretty much normal to me.

I started my new pack of pills on the 23rd of Saturday and I'm on my 3rd pill from my new pack, but my period has not stopped.

Avatar n tn heavy bleeding is good as it lightens your body..but excessive beeding i.e changing pads after every 2 hrs is not normal....
Avatar n tn All the females on my mum's side of the family seem to be incredibly fertile, and my grandma got pregnant with my mum whilst on the pill. I'm on the pill myself but have been having pregnancy symptoms that are very different from my usual pms ones. I appear to have come on my period today bang on time, but it started like brown spotting most of the day until any actual blood came this evening. This is incredibly unusual from my normal periods which always come bang heavy out of nowhere.
Avatar m tn go back to the doctor it is not the pill for you. Had same thing happen to me. They will simply change it and what a difference a pill makes.
Avatar m tn My 13 year old daughter was placed on the pill to regulate her periods. Will taking birth control pills at such a young age cause her any issues down the road?

Avatar f tn I'm 17 and have been on my period for 3 weeks straight. I'm on the pill and take it faithfully every day, same time and everything. Whenever i engage with my boyfriend physically though, i get my period no later than a few hours. I am constantly tired from my period, and don't know if i should see a doctor or not. Help?
Avatar f tn I was on the pill for 13 years and went off the pill 8 months ago & still haven't started my period. I went to the gyno & he said this is common, he took blood & tested for thyroid issues & came back normal. He perscribed Provera for me to take by everyone says that made their acne horrible and just made them start but didn't help them to cycle regularly. I have hated all the side effects of being off the pill.
Avatar f tn When I start in the 2nd week of pills, it feels like a normal cycle, with heavy bleeding and cramps and then dies down until I start the sugar pills and then it feels like I started my period again- with the heavy bleeding and the cramps again. How do I get my periods to be regular again?
Avatar n tn I hope you aren't on the pill...best of luck with your doctor (s)!
Avatar m tn m very good about taking the pill on time and I even take the sugar pills which is supposed to be the time when you have your period. I have probably missed a pill or two during the years I've been taking it but again I have never had any problems. I am sexually active and my partner and I sometimes have unprotected sex. I worry that sometimes I may be pregnant because my periods will be light sometimes and heavy with clots other times.
Avatar f tn I also for almost 2 years now have had really weird menstrual periods( very very heavy one month and very little another month) most of the time they are heavy. also during this time i have been having back pain and abdominal pain. It comes and goes, sometimes with pain and sometimes without. For the past 2 days I have been haveing quite a lot red and brown blood when i wipe or just in my panties. Anyone has any clue?
Avatar n tn I was on Yaz and loved it. The first couple weeks I had on/off heavy bleeding. Then it stopped and at the end of my pack had my first period it was lighter and shorter than normal. After that my periods stayed light and short about 3 days in length and they were 7 days and very heavy when I didnt take it. In addition to the shorter lighter periods....it worked wonders on my PMS. Maybe your lining was just thick and it needed to thin out. I would wait it out and see what happens.
Avatar f tn me and my bf often use condoms as well as the pill but the past few weeks we have only used the pill and ive missed a few... and have missed another about 2 days after having sex.. could that open me up to gettin pregnant?
Avatar f tn I didnt have anything on my tampon/pad for the past 4 days. I took my first active pill yesterday however today I have gotten my periods again and they are fairly heavy. Why would I have them now after not having anything? I have also recently had thrush could this have something to do with it?
Avatar n tn I'm taking the pill to help regulate my periods & forgot to take it until an hou after my usual time to take it. Will this cause any problems??
Avatar n tn 5 years old due to irregular and heavy periods. I came off 3 times to fall pregnant, which I did the month straight after eg off pill period then fell. Each time the mini pill wasn't strong enough to control the bleeding. A year a ago I was on a pill and I thought that my anxiety and weight was an issue so I changed to the Yaz combined pill. My anxiety and weight haven't changed.
