  • Well, for the past year+ I bled for 4 days with two days of very light spotting prior. Last month I spotted for 8 days and had a 2(2.5) day period. And this month, I had some spotting yesterday, which is 10 days before I start. LOL So...I haven't a clue anymore.

  • Oh...I use no form of birth control. And aside from condoms, never have.

  • I assume you are asking about seasonique but it has been great so far. the side effects are the same as taking the pill but I have been fine. I absolutely LOVE it. they have a list of side effects and FAQs on their website though :)

  • well i use to bleed 2months heavy then it would go to 2 days normal 3rd day heavy heavy and then spot the rest of the 2 days. then 3 months straight heavy. so now i have the mirena which causes me to have terrible headaches but is worth it. the mirena is being used to control even eventually stop the periods. its been a year and i love it cause now my bleeding is spotting and i am able to do things i like to do without worring of accidents from heavy bleeding

  • I know you don't enjoy this now. But, when it's all over, you'll be surprised at how much you miss it. The knowledge that you can't have a child, that you're old. It's sad.

  • I heard of that but didn't want to be on it I don't want to mess with Mother nature I guess. That does sound good though. Any side affects?
