  • Definitely call your doctor that is not right. In the mean while take 800mg of ibuprofen it will slow down your bleeding.

  • I have been off of the pill for over a year now, but in February about six months after I stopped taking my birth control pill I stopped having my period. I didn't have a period for almost 4 months, and when I started bleeding one night I went to the ER because I suspected a MC. They told me everything was fine, no MC, every thing was healthy. Well, about a week after I visited the ER I started bleeding and took it as my period.. The bleeding went on for 60 days. Light bleeding, never clots, light cramps to none. My doctor told me that its all hormones, but I would get checked out anyways. Good Luck! :)

    No it will not!! It's an anti-inflammatory and actually thins your blood and can make bleeding worse!! 800 mg is a prescription strength, so unless you are a Doctor NEVER tell anyone to take that much!! Yikes!!!
