I've been taking desogestrel for over 1 month now. I got my period pretty much as soon as I started taking the pill which lasted for a week and then stopped. Bleeding was normal brown to red then back to brown and stopped.
A week later my period started again but I was only on for 6 days and stopped, and same bleeding as the first one.
Then just under 2 weeks later I am on again!! Now onto my 8th day! I thought it was stopping as it went very light brown 2 days ago and I had sex with my partner but the morning after sex I started bleeding dark red blood and it's really heavy (for me) I'm only small so I don't get heavy periods normally. I'm using the normal absorbancy (yellow) tampons/pads, but with this bleeding i feel i need the next absorbancy size (green super) as I am having to change more regularly. The blood is thick and abit clotted too. I'm not sure if my partner disturbed something? But I feel quite ill since too, hence me being awake now at 02:15!! I have stomach ache, back ache and a slightly tense achy head too and just feel generally crap! I should be asleep but the symptoms are keeping me awake.
I'm thinking of going back to the mirena coil, but last time I had that i had a tough time and it scared me into not having it again. Because I was getting my period every 2 weeks and it was lasting for 2 weeks at a time!! So 2 weeks of every month I was bleeding with a 2 week break inbetween! Not good!!
Just wondering if anyone else has had similar experience. I'm quite worried about the having sexytime then bleeding heavily after?! I think I'm going to ring my GP tomorrow for a chat!
