Im 22 and have been on bc since I was 14. I didnt have any problems in the beginning. But I changed pills at 18 and ended up bleeding for 3 weeks (after 4 months of using it) and got pregnant with my 1st DD. I then tried 2 different pills - same thing --- prolonged bleeding, not just spotting. It would last for 2 or more weeks. Then I tried the depo shot - bled for 3 months straight with no stopping. Got pregnant with my 2nd dd at 20. after her I tried 2 more pills - same issues. Ive now had an IUD (Mirena) in since September. Ive bled for a month or a few weeks at a time since. this time Ive been bleeding since Feb 2nd.
I have an appointment set for thurs to most likely have it taken out.
I also have early signs of adenomyosis (but bc is what the use to fix it. not working with me) and last month while checking to see if the iud is in correctly a cyst on my left ovary was found.
has anyone else had these problems with bc? and if so have you been told a reason why?
