Around the end of April I was told by my gyne to use the contraceptive patch continuously for 12 weeks then have a week off, to help control my endo. 7 weeks in I started to bleed quite heavily despite using the patch correctly. I've now been bleeding for 12 days it's going light to heavy to brown discharge then heavy again, and there's a lot of bad pelvis pain too. A couple of times I thought it had stopped (almost 24 hours with no bleeding) but I'd do something like walk around a shop and I'd start to get bad pain and bleed again. This is really concerning me now has anyone else experienced this and what did you do? I'm going to the drs tomorrow but I'd like to try and ease my mind in the mean time.
