Here's my dilema... Everytime I am on birth control, I can not stop bleeding.
I have been on 5 different pills, the depo shot, and now I have Mirena (IUD).
Everytime I either 1 - bleed for several weeks at a time (even after taking the birth control for at least 6 months) or 2- I dont stop bleeding at all.
I now have the IUD in. My doctor said that this is the last thing I can try for birth control. I had it put in around September. Things seemed to be going ok. A little irregular bleeding, spotting, etc. Normal side effects. But now, I have been bleeding for about a month straight. No stopping at all.
I already have 2 daughters, and am not ready for another one just yet.
I also have adenomyosis. however its not bad, irregular, heavy bleeding is a symptom of it and birth control is suppose to fix that problem. Obviously it hasnt. The next step my doctor says is getting my tubes tied... Im 22!!!! Dont want that yet. and the only way to cure adenomyosis completely is a hysterectomy. Again -- 22 years old!!! Not yet!
I started using BC when I was 15. I havnt continusly used bc because of this. And I also had gotten pregnant with my first daughter while on birth control.
Has anyone else had this problem?
