Lo Loestrin Fe- Very Heavy Continuous Break Through Bleeding...

oOo Arisa oOo Says:

I started my first pack of pills and I'm on the third week. My period started more than a week ago, and I have been bleeding irregularly and heavily for the past 9 days. The wierd thing is that I don't bleed all afternoon and evening. But when I take the pill at night, I start to bleed heavily a couple of hours after taking the pill, all the way until early morning. Is this break through bleeding or my period? I also can't get any sleep because of the very heavy nightly bleeding. Besides that, it has kept me off my moodswings, headaches, bloating, and cramping. (I am also thirteen years old, and have been going through very heavy, but regular periods for a year.)

Thank You for looking at this question! :)

Hello, Arisa! I'm sorry I didn't see your question sooner, so I hope you still pop back to read this.

Have things changed, or improved any?

Since oral contraceptives are hormonal based, it is completely normal to experience unusual bleeding, while your body is adjusting to them and it may take up to 3 months, before things start to settle down.

If it continues after that, then you should definitely contact your doctor, as this may not be the right oral contraceptive for you to use.

As to the trouble sleeping, is that due to your just being worried about it?

Yep, I ended up switching to another oral pill which worked MUCH better. I guess it just wasn't the right one for me. I'm also pretty sure the less-sleeping was due to worry. Thank You very much for the info! :)
