I started birth control in Aug and since Nov 10 I've been bleeding. I now feel very weak, light headed, nausea, and I've been cramping. I've also had clots the size of my palm. I know I'm not pregnant. I was hoping someone might have an idea of what could be going on. I will be calling the drs but I won't be able to get seen until next month.

If you can't be seen until a month from now, and you are already light headed and whatnot, you need to find an urgent care, or something like that.  Anything larger than a golf ball is alarming for a passing clot.

Bleeding on birth control is fine but the other symptoms are alarming. When you called your dr did you tell them exactly why you needed to be seen or just a general apt? Try also your regular physician if its going to take that long.

IMO you are having a reaction, I did the same on birth control. I ended up with an IUD and loved it. Like the others say, go to urgent care.

I totally agree with this! You need to see someone sooner than a month from now.


Quoting Marimaru:

I would NOT wait that long. Thats too much blood to pass & being sickly on top of it isn't ok.. is this an oral birth control pill? or intermal like a  IUD? Id get in fast hun Good luck.

 I'm not in the medical field. But I've dealt with female issues since I was 11 years old. I finally was diagnosed with endometriosis, in 2008. You can google it and find info on it. I had to see a specialist for it.

best wishes
