I was put on a birth control pill continuously after my endometriosis was removed in Feb. The doctor told me that the hormonal suppression of taking the pill nonstop would also supress the endo from returning. He said that I may have some spotting/ breakthrough bleeding but this is normal and nothing to worry about. My problem or question rather is: How much "spotting" is normal or safe for keeping the endo from coming back? I have been bleeding lightly (1 small tampon a day worth) for 7 days now... at what point is spotting a full blown period? Or does the bleeding itself not even matter? Is it just keeping the hormones suppressed effectively and the the blood doesn't matter at all as long as the hormones are still supressed? (I was under the impression that the bleeding is what builds up the endo adhesions so should I be concerned aboutchanging birth control pills if I dont want the adhesions to return?
