Mono Linyah Problems

Lena Says:

So five months ago I started taking mono Linyah bc after I had my son. The first two months were completely normal and I have my period on the week of the sugar pills. On the 3rd month I had my period on the sugar pills and then 2 weeks later I had my period again (yes a regular period needing to change tampons regularly for three days..) I started spotting a really dark brown/blackish color until my next period. Which was two weeks later when it was actually supposed to come. After that no spotting for two days. Then it was the same spotting again for a week. I haven't spotted since then. But my period is always really heavy I always bleed through a super plus tampon every two hours.. What could cause this?

The symptoms you've described are most commonly caused by a hormonal imbalance, according to the NIH, so this may not be the right oral contraceptive for you.

Have you consulted your doctor? You may need to switch to a different one.

Other side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, and headache, according to the FDA.

Hi, I am new with mono linyah. I am in my second week of the pack. I started taking them on the second day of my period and everything was fine. My period was heavier than usual but I thought that it was because of the pill. After the period stopped I started having really bad cramps very consistently. Is that normal?

My daughter is on Tri-Linyah and has had three periods in the last five weeks. She has been on this brand of birth control for 3 to 4 years and has just started having problems.
