The pill back to back, 27 years old and stage 3 endo

hi everyone, I'm 27, had my lap 2 months ago & confirmed stage 3 endo. I had been taking the microgonom pill back to back for 5 months before the op and my gyno told me to continue taking the pill back to back. I'm just abit worried as I started bleeding/having a period 3 weeks ago and it's still going on. I'm waiting for a consult with a BSGE specialist, but for the time being is this normal 6-7months into taking the pill back to back? I'm really worried about my fertility getting worse if I'm still having periods despite being on the pill, also I have read some people have been advised to have a week break from the pill every 3 months?

Thanks in advance for any advice

  • Hi Laura, is the pill your on Microgynon sorry? If it was, i was on this pill for a long time too - i was never told to stop taking it after 3 months - i just took mine every day for around 8 months, which is when i decided the side effects were rubbish for me and i decided to stop!

    I didnt have very regular periods at all - sometimes every 2 weeks, sometimes nothing for 3 months!

    EDIT - Sorry laura, just realised I'm half asleep, it wasn't microgynon i was taking, but micronor. The microgynon can be taken everyday though i believe, as they give you 'dummy pills' for the week your supposed to stop i think? Sorry i cant be of more help!! Xx

  • Thank you Emma, im seeing the Dr next week x
