  • So, you take them with no break in order to not have a period? If that is what you are saying, you will eventually at some time have some break through bleeding. I tried that for four months and little by little I was having so much cramping and pain. Finally at the end of the 4th month, I thought I was hemorrhaging. It was so bad and so heavy.

    They tell you this won't happen, but it does. Daughter said she was the same way. I stopped taking BCP now.

  • So you've stopped taking BC because you're TTC?
    Yes your cycles are going to be out of wack for a while.

  • I'm not exactly just looking for a period, I know it may take up to three months for them to become normal again, but shouldn't I be spotting or having some break thru bleeding
