Is because you bleed so much you never have sex? hmm

Fairenuff Thu 08-Feb-18 20:01:18

I bled less. Maybe it's not for you?

Graphista Thu 08-Feb-18 20:01:19

Have you tried different brands/types?

EllJ Thu 08-Feb-18 20:01:53

I've been on the pill for more years that I care to remember and I only ever bleed when I'm on my break

UgandanKnuckles Thu 08-Feb-18 20:01:55

You're bu because that's not normal.

You must be on a mini-pill/progesterone only pill.

BertrandRussell Thu 08-Feb-18 20:03:27

You need to go back to your doctor TOMORROW!

Maybe I should replace the you with I

I was on microgynon for 3 month and bled most of it then, due to bp and my advanced years, they switched to maexani (I think) and I've bled for the almost 3 weeks

I barely had bleeding with the pill even on the break. I think you haven’t found the right one.

Whatshallidonowpeople Thu 08-Feb-18 20:05:19

Not mini pill

Whatshallidonowpeople Thu 08-Feb-18 20:06:05

I can't face changing to another one. I have a couple more days then the break but I'm thinking of just carrying on

Whatshallidonowpeople Thu 08-Feb-18 20:06:45

It's not heavy, it's just every day

Duchessgummybuns Thu 08-Feb-18 20:07:04

Back to the GP I reckon OP, that doesn’t sound right at all!

ZigZagIntoTheBlue Thu 08-Feb-18 20:07:08

Ask to try cerelle, I've not had a period in ages!!

Rewn7 Thu 08-Feb-18 20:07:35

In on the POP. Cerazette.

I don’t bleed at all. Ever. It’s bliss.

Rewn7 Thu 08-Feb-18 20:08:17

I was also same in Cerelle. No bleeding at all. They are essentially the same POP.

Sarsparella Thu 08-Feb-18 20:08:24

That isn’t normal whatsoever, go back to your GP asap, I’ve been on loads of different pills and never had that reaction

calmandbright Thu 08-Feb-18 20:08:34

Cileste - never ever bleed. Could you try a different one?

Mumoftwoyoungkids Thu 08-Feb-18 20:09:22

That is what the implant did to me.

Pill / mini pill has been fine.

Fairylea Thu 08-Feb-18 20:09:25

Definitely try different pills. I’m on cezarette and haven’t had a period since I started it (nearly a year ago).

Mari50 Thu 08-Feb-18 20:10:35

When I took the pill I only bled on my break and it was a very light bleed, what you’re describing isn’t the norm so I’d definitely speak to your gp.

I've just bled for 6 months on the minipill. Just a bit, most days. Had to wear a pantyliner everyday. They irritated me, now I have a massive skin tag on my fanny.

Stopped talking the pill, and apart from the hideous growth, I feel amazing. So much happier and no more bleeding. (I'm sure I won't be saying that when my agonising real periods return, but enjoying it while it lasts. )And we're using condoms while DH tries to sort out a vasectomy. I'm done with hormonal contraceptives.

The bleed women get when they do the 7 day no pill is not a period, it’s caused by hormone fluctuations and only exists because the man who invented the pill thought women would go insane without a bleed. The pill causes no egg to be released, the womb lining to not thicken, cervical mucous to thicken, so the womb lining doesn’t build up and up, just don’t do the hormone withdrawal bleed, there’s no need.

Whatshallidonowpeople Thu 08-Feb-18 20:14:30

Next stop is the mini pill but apparently that gives irregular bleedjng. Who needs sex anyway?

Whatshallidonowpeople Thu 08-Feb-18 20:15:50

Even when I was on the pill before, it start my "period" a day or two before the break. Every month
