Ask your doctor!!

This is not a "period".  Menstrual periods are when the uterus flushes out blood that is built up for two weeks after ovulation,  to support a baby if you conceive one that month.  Then,  the period gets rid of all the blood and starts again.

What you are doing is bleeding continuously  and not ovulating,  because you're on the birth control pill.  

Call your doctor.  You shouldn't have continuous vaginal bleeding,  and it's not a "period".

I have had this problem for about four years now.  It started off as light spotting between periods and has progressed to continuous bleeding or spotting all the time.  I've tried several different birth control pills and none stopped the bleeding.  I'm off birth control pills now.  I was taking prozac for the past four years and recently stopped taking it to see if that was causing it (maybe hormonal).  I had one glorious week of no spotting or bleeding, now its back to bleeding all the time.  My old Obgyn just kept brushing it off as well.  What is wrong with these doctors?!?!  This is obviously a somewhat common problem if that many women are complaining about this and for these docs to brush it off is completely irresponsible and Im sick of it.  I finally found a doc that genuinely seems concerned about it.  Im going back to see her next week and see what tests she wants to do.  Im just so ready to figure this out.  Its so exhausting and  depressing to not know what is wrong with your body, not to mention it getting in the way of other things.
If anyone else finds out any info about this problem please keep us posted.

My condition is amenorrhea. Since I started getting periods I would only get 4-6 a year. A few years back I went to the ER for a pain in my left side. After X-rays and stuff I found out I had cysts on my ovaries and was put on birthcontrol I was on them for 3 months then for a year. When I got off my entire cycle was messed up. I would was spotting at odd times and started missing more months than I did before.  That time I was rushed to the ER I had been bleeding heavily (1 pad every 1/2hr) for a month and a half my doctor gave me a pill told me to go home. When I got to the ER I had to get an emergency operation and had to get 4 blood transfusions.  

It is imperative that you do get it checked out. I am not trying to scare anyone, I thought I could deal with it and it will eventually go away. Instead I almost died.

I'm 29, no births yet, and I've had this permanent bleeding since last October. I've seen two doctors but they don't really help and take my problem rather easy. In the first month I slightly started bleeding for another two weeks two days after my regular period, which has always been very painful and was often combined with vomiting, . My next period came regular but never stopped, only changed into slight bleeding. The doctor examined me, sonography, blood test, all he found was a polyp. He recommended me to take the pill but the only result is that the bleeding cut down to exactly 9 days before my actual period. I saw the doctor 4 months later: the polyp was gone but the bleeding not. He said, looking at the sonography image it might be endometrioses but would that cause such a regular bleeding pattern? I doubt it. I also have a low thyroid condition but it's treated so my hormone level is right. I also started having circular pain and burning deeper in my vagina and dryness outside of it, especially before the period. Could it be candida? I feel silly going to the doctors again and again. Some hospitals offer advisory hours for specific problems, I might go there but I guess they are used to more difficult cases.  A friend told me it might result from stress. I had a lot of stress lthe past two years but now my life is rather quiet.  The literature says it could be anything: myoms, endometriosis or cancer which can only be ruled out by D&C  and myoms and uterin cancer are uncommon in women under 40 who are not overweight.I am not inclined to have D&C done if there is no additional indication.  It could be hormone irregularities which the doctor didn't find in me. I have an overproduction of testosterone since I am 13 but why should this cause bleeding just now? I also tried to adapt the pill pause to my bleeding but now it takes even longer. It would be nice to hear from someone who found a solution to her problem.

im 16 and ive been bleeding for about 7 weeks now but only spotting and im also on birth control. i went to the doctors when the bleeding hadnt stopped after 3 weeks they asked me to do a pregancy test as i may have been pregant and miscarryed fortunaly i hadnt but they gave me some pills to stop the bleeding but they didnt work. i went back 2 weeks later and after that i  had a week break they told me to carry on taking my birth control but im still bleeding ive got to go back soon for blood tests as this is causing me to be very tired due to the blood loss. As you all said they do just keep brushing it off and its starting to gettin annoying also just recently im startin to get pains in my lower stomach which will only last about 5 minutes but is still very painfull

I recently tried the contraceptive injection because my dr had told me it would 'lighten' my period. As soon as i took it, my period stopped for 2 days and that was exactly 2 months a go. I went back to my dr n  he did an ultrasound on me n he said tht there was still a little blood left in my uterus but it should clear up in 1 week. That was 5 weeks a go. Now not only i'm still having my supposedly 'spotting' it jas become a normal period where i have to change my tampon  every 4 hrs. I am sick of these drs brushing this topic off! It' very frustrating! If anyone has an answer to this, please please please let us know

i was 3 weeks late and i have been bleeding now for 11 days, it's just like a prolonged period, only i'm constantly heavy instead of just the 3 days i normally have, i've searched google for possible answers and found very little, i feel great in myself, though at the start of this bleed i did have severe back pain and could hardly walk.

any info would be a great help. thanks jo

please help me. i am 17 years old and since i hit puberty nothing has been normal with my body. i have been on the same period for 5 years and the doctors didn't do anything about it at fist when i went to them. after it had been happening for a year they put me on the pill at the age of 13 to stop the period and try to balance it out but it only got worse. my periods got heaver and heaver making me have to change to stronger pills. the pain is excruciating all the time i am on 6 pain killers a day just so i can go to school. it has been 5 years and i am on the strongest pill taking 2 a day putting far too many chemicals in to my body. the doctor now says that me having taken a double dosage of this pill has started to cause problems to my womb. they say that all this will probably cause problems with fertility and  the doctors still don't know what's wrong with me, if there is anyone still reading this please help, i am only 17 and i am scared and in a lot of pain. (i have many other symptoms too.)

I'm having that exact issue but I'm not on the pill, I'm really scared at what it might be and I have no medical insurance which is double bad for me.
