I am taking sprintec for migraine prevention, not birth control. I typically take 3 months of active pills beck taking a week off to have a period. I missed 3 days in a row during my second pack of active pills. I tried to catch up by taking two a day, but it was too late and a full blown period started. So i stopped taking them in the hopes of letting the period run its course. It has been 5 days of (very) heavy bleeding now, with clots. I have stopped the pill for 3 days now. When should I restart, or should i see if bleeding stops?

It really would have been best, according to FDA directions, to have continued taking them, this can happen if you miss to many in a row, but should resolve itself, once you complete your next cycle. Other side effects are listed as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and PMS-like symptoms.

Generally, you should only stop them, if your doctor instructs you to do so.

How are you doing, now? Has there been any change?

I am on Sprintec , I missed 3 pills in week 2 it took those and continued to take them but on day 3 of that missed week I started bleeding . I know have 1 day left on week 3. Does this mean I’m going to keep bleeding till after the white pills are done too ? Basically I’ve bleed for a month by then . Or should I keep taking blue pills by starting my new pack in hopes that I will stop bleeding and just have a normal period next month ?
