I'm 25, and have been on BC (Yasmin) before, but stopped about tow and a half years ago.
I started Yaz on the first day of my period this month. It caused me to stop my period entirely (a bit unnerving, to be honest). A few days later, I began spotting. A week after that, I began to bleed much heavier, like a regular flow, but thinner than usual. As of tomorrow, I will start the last four pills in the blister pack (the white ones) and should get my period, except that I've been bleeding non-stop for almost three weeks. I have terrible canker sores from what I can only assume is mild anemia. I'm exhausted all the time and quite concerned. While I heard these side-effects are not uncommon, and I called my doctor early on, I am quite worried. Any insights would be helpful! Thank you.
