This is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.

Ask Your Own OB GYN Question

you should continue to take your birth control pill one a day

why did you stop your birth control pills

over time, it can help regulate your period and help your periods maybe be a bit less.

While on my period I took the regular pills not the sugar pills. It made the period worse so I stopped in the hopes of letting the period run its course
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
to let my body figure itself out
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Should I stick with that or go back to the pills and hope the bleeding stops

when you have your period flow, you should be taking the sugar pills

when you are done with the sugar pills, you start a new pack of regular birth control pills

take the sugar pills for now

when your period is over, start a new pack of birth control pills

Ok thank you. It's been 10 days so far when should I get worried that I've had my period for too long

no, you shouldn't be worried.

your period will get better once you start to take your birth control pills properly

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
