hey, sooo i’m on the mini pill and i’m new to it and have finished my 3rd month now but for the past 50ish days i have had my period and for me that is really tiring, has anyone got any advice to this as it’s kinda driving me crazy😩😩
birth control, prolonged period😡: hey, sooo i’m on... - BASHH
I was on that, I bled right from the beginning for 3 months straight, it drained the life out of me. I went back and said I wasn’t prepared to stay on it any longer, it showed no signs of stopping at all and I couldn’t take it, so they changed me to the combined and I’ve been great on that, been on it over a year now and am so much happier on it.
I did know someone who used to take 2 of the pills a day with the mini pill to stop bleeding but that was suggested by her gp so possibly they can do that? But you’d have to check with a gp
Hope it eases up for you
i phoned up my gp not long ago and they simply told me to wait it out, which i have done but they are going to phone for a chat soon so i’m hoping they suggest switching up pills. seriously tho pads in scotland are £3 a packet i’m sure, it might not seem a lot but when i’m going through a couple a week that’s not normal😂😂
thanks for the advice
Persistent unscheduled bleeding on the POP can happen. I would discuss with your local reproductive health clinic in Scotland to discuss an alternative method. 6 weeks of unscheduled bleeding suggests its not going to stop.
It should as you are having unscheduled bleeding on the POP. There must be a reason you were given this rather than the combined pill. Unfortunately there are limited choices for POPs , and sometimes is a class effect rather than the individual pill. If you cant take oestrogens for some reason, a copper IUD or other progesterone only methods may help ( Depo , IUS , possibly implanon although you may bleed again with the latter )
when i started POP it was because i was smoking regular at that point
but within 3 months i have fully changed over to a vape. My doctor did warn that it might be unusual for the first couple months but i didn’t expect this at all
If you have changed your smoking to being vape only, you may now be able to take the CHC instead. I would go to a reproductive health clinic, they can do a proper assessment, then advised your clotting risk with the chc.
