Quasense Overview

Extended or continuous cycle combined oral contraceptive pills are a packaging of combined oral contraceptive pills (COCPs) that reduce or eliminate the withdrawal bleeding that would occur once every 28 days in traditionally packaged COCPs. Extended cycle use of COCPs may also be called menstrual suppression.[1] Other combined hormonal contraceptives (those containing both an estrogen and a progestin) may also be used in an extended or continuous cycle.

How long will my period last after stopping Quasense?

I've been on Quasense for about 6-7 weeks. I know they say to stick it out for 2-3 months. But between the constant bleeding and cramps I don't want to be on it anymore. I don't even use it for birth control, I just didn't want my period so often. I go on vacation in 10 days, if I stopped taking it now how long might my period last? Remember I've only been on it for about 6 weeks. ## There's really no definitive way to say, it can vary from person to person and depend on your body's reaction to the hormones in it. The withdrawal bleeding could last a week, or so. Have you consulted your doctor?

Strange symptoms with Quasense

I take Synthroid and Zoloft and my endocrinologist thinks Quasense is messing with my absorbtion of my synthroid. Has anyone else had that problem? Also I have had fatigue, insomnia, no cramps the 1st 2 months and now on the 3rd month horrible cramps and 2 weeks of bleeding. Also having memory problems. ## When do you take the Synthroid and Quasense? The Synthroid should be taken on an empty stomach, with nothing but water and hour or two, before eating, or taking any other medications. There are many foods and medications that can affect the absorption of it, that's why it is always advisable to take it in the manner I described. As to the symptoms from the Quasense, those can be normal side effects, when your body is adjusting to it. If they worsen, or don't taper off, then ma...
