ok, so I started taking birth control pills in november of 2011 and instead of taking the placebo pills I went ahead and started the next pack. when I got to that packs placebo's I didn't take them either and went ahead and started the third pack. three days into the 3rd pack I started spotting but continued to take the pill, 3 days later I got what I thought was my period so I decided to go ahead and stop the pill to let me period come on...I had my period for 9 days but 7 days into it I went back on the pill and after the 9th day it stopped, I forgot to take 2 pills in a row and I am bleeding again, but this time it is very heavy and crampy and has now been going on for about 5 days, I do not plan on going back on the pill but I want to know if this is normal and when I can expect the bleeding/cramping etc to end and will my periods go back to normal and if so when...thanks
This bleeding can be due to hormonal imbalance caused by irregular intake of ills and should improve with time. If there is heavy bleeding then you can get ethamsylate or tranexamic acid tablets prescribed from your doctor.
