Sat: went for a 6 mile run...started bleeding that night
Sun: bleeding very heavily all day
After negative side-effects from a new form of birth control I stopped taking it three days into the pack. My first few days off the pill were fine. I felt great. I went for a long run 4 days later. That night I started bleeding very heavily and have been all throughout today as well. I have heard of headaches, bloating, and moodiness as common side effects, but not heavy bleeding. Is this okay? Should I be concerned for my health?
Your bleeding is due to the fact that you started birth control for three days and then you stopped. You began feeding your body hormones and then nothing. I doubt it's nothing more than chemical withdrawl (withdrawal), which feels much like a period. You can probably expect another period in another 2 weeks or so.
