Is this Okay? Please help

I had my period from 27th to the 3rd. I began my birth control on the 4th and took it for 2 days. Then stopped taking it due to headaches. I began my period again yesterday!! I am bleeding incredibly heavy and it's bright red. I have never had this happen before. Is this okay?

  • I believe it is normal to bleed if you discontinue your pill. Your hormones are inbalanced. However, (TMI) if you are saturating 1 pad and/or tampon per hour, then you should call your doctor.

  • I agree w/ princes. If it's too heavy and bright red for long, call the nurse.

  • What does bright red matter? I have never had anything like this before. Thank you.
