I have been on birth control for 1 year and 8 months. I had an abortion and thats when i was put on the BC (birth control). Shortly afterwards i started forgetting to take my pills and started bleeding incontrollably. My GYN put me on the 3-2-1 method, taking 3 pills a day for one week, the next week 2 pills a day and finally 1 daily. It went under control. Now if i forget to take a pill i start bleeding immediately.
I have now started thinking i want to have a baby. But i am not sure how to stop the BC's because i dont want to start bleeding. Any suggestions?
Every time I would miss a pill (or take it late) I would bleed for two or three weeks. Now, I'm trying to get pregnant and was a little concerned like yourself. After my period, I simply didn't get back on my pills and I havent had a problem yet....no bleeding! Its been almost a month so far. I hope that helps.
