in May I started taking Junel FE birth control due to extremely heavy bleeding, I'm on the pack where there are NO pills on the 4th week. Well, I had a period after I finished the first pack, but I havent had a period since then.. is this normal? (Btw, I haven't had any sexual intercourse since December 2011)
Junel is a birth control pill which causes menstrual irregularity. Few women experience menstrual irregularities like spotting between periods, breakthrough bleeding, and changes in menstrual flow and missed periods while taking Junel. These side effects usually diminish after a few months of taking Junel. You have been having missed periods since such a long time so you should consult their gynecologist. Do keep us posted and kind regards!
