How old are you?

Do you have any idea how thick the uterine thickness was?

How were your periods prior to 3 months ago? Thank you.

OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Norm S., Board Certified OB/GYN replied 2 years ago

What do you mean by bleeding all along?

Did you have monthly periods before 3 months ago? And now are you bleeding every day?

Do you use anything for birth control?

I used provera and prevnar..but still bleeding
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Norm S., Board Certified OB/GYN replied 2 years ago

Please tell me how you used the provera - for how many days and whether you repeated it.

Prevnar is a vaccination. Is that what you mean?

OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Norm S., Board Certified OB/GYN replied 2 years ago

I am unable to find a pill called prevnar. Is it a birth control pill? How many pills are in a pack?

Orthonovum
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
28 are in each pks
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Norm S., Board Certified OB/GYN replied 2 years ago

Thank you.

Most abnormal bleeding like you're having in a young women will be due to hormonal changes, and most will respond to provera or birth control pills.

If the bleeding is significantly better, but you still have slight bleeding, I would give it one more pack of the Ortho Novum. If the bleeding hasn't stopped by then, you may need a D&C, or else a change to a different birth control pill. I think that most likely the bleeding will become normal using the pill, but sometimes it takes a while.

OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Norm S., Board Certified OB/GYN replied 2 years ago

There are many different birth control pills, of which Ortho Novum is one type. Usually if one doesn't clear up the bleeding, another one will.

Sorry, I'm not able to do phone calls now.

OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Norm S., Board Certified OB/GYN replied 2 years ago

I would see your doctor. After an exam, your doctor can recommend one of the other birth control pills to help to resolve your bleeding.
