Over a year ago, I started to realize that I had not been having normal periods. It had been about three to four months that I had not experienced any vaginal bleeding. However, around the fifth month I realized that I had continuous bleeding the whole month. This lasted about six or seven months with continuous bleeding. The bleeding wasn't heavy but more like heavier spotting. (I would use about 6 tampons a day). After a while the bleeding stopped for five months and then proceeded for an additional 8 months.
Currently I have been bleeding non stop for about 9 months. I've recently starting taking Mononessa birth control pills to help regulate my menstrual cycle(I'm on day 25 of the first month pack). Originally, the pill seemed to be working. I noticed my bleeding had gotten lighter. All of a sudden, however, the bleeding seemed to get a lot heavier to where I'm changing tampons every 30 minutes to an hour because they are soaked(I usually have to sleep with a pad on at night to prevent leakage). This started a few days ago. I've noticed now that much of the blood is clotted. I have experienced this clotted bleeding once before a year ago but it has never lasted more than two days.
I'm concerned that the pills are not working and I'm losing too much blood. I do not smoke or drink. I have had sexual intercourse once and have not since I've noticed my irregular period. Now i'm wondering is it normal to have these blood clots while taking this birth control? Is this just my body getting back on track? Could my irregular bleeding have started because of sex? I really need some advice.
