Customer Question

I have been on Birth Control for over a year and in February I had some irregularity. I was supposed to start my period this past Sunday Feb 7th but I started 5 days earlier than that on the 2nd and I am still bleeding now, should I be concerned?
JA: OK. The Gynecologist will need to help you with this. Is there anything else important you think the Gynecologist should know?
Customer: I am typically not synced 100% with my BC meaning even though I am supposed to start on a Sunday I sometimes will not start until Tuesday even though I am taking my pills on schedule daily.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Gynecologist about your situation and then connect you two.

hormonal cycle can be affected by many things, even stress can play a role, so duration and strength of bleeding can vary. Nevertheless, if it lasts longer than 10 days, you should visit your OB/GYN to stop it by hormonal treatment to avoid the risk of anemia.
