I'm a 37 year old. I've never taken birth control until this past April. I took it once, and stopped. Since I've stopped, I've have daily continuous bleeding since the past 2 1/2 months. It's usually very light, but for a few days it was heavier. I don't intend to take BC in the near term. I'll speak with my doctor about it, but would like to know if taking estrogen is a better alternative to letting my body just take care of itself. Anyone with experience on this?
You should be seen by your physician and evaluated for irregular bleeding. What you have been experiencing may or may not be related to your prior use of the pill. Further evaluation is warranted and at that time the use of estrogen can be revisited.
i've had a similar problem. i was on the depo for 6months so i only got the shot twice. after i stopped taking the shot i would bleed like a normal period then stop for a few days then start again. it was like that for about 6 weeks. what i did was use the birth control patch for one month to get the bleeding back to normal and to get my period back to normal. i think that your hormones are out of wack since the shot has a 3 month supply of hormones in it. you don't even have to use the patch, even regular birth control pills should work. as long as you are suppose to get your period at the end of the cycle of hormones.
