That might not be an option as of yet. The same thing happened to me when I started Depoprevara (sp?). A form of injected birth control. It lasts 3 months & until that's up, you're stuck. FYL, OP... I have felt your pain!

I wouldn't necessarily try another form because it might worsen her bleeding along with other period related symptoms. It also can leave her unprotected if she engages in sexual activity; ops best bet is just to suck it up and wait it out, because sadly it can get a lot worse.

To number 74: some people want to have sex before marriage and want to not get pregnant at the same time. So to your whole " like abstinence" comment, please take it somewhere else. Not all people share your beliefs, I'm not saying yours are bad.

220: ur telling him to take is abstinent opinion somewhere else and yet u say that its not a bad belief. Everyone has a different mind different opinion and different belief so why try to shut people up for expressing it? I see nothing wrong with abstinence or chastity, whatever makes someone happy that's their choice. As long as they are not trying to shove it down my throat its fine.

She might be drug testing, you never know. They gotta test on SOMEBODY.... We all hate side effects, especially crap like this. The first time I got my period I had it 2 weeks and it FREAKED ME OUT. FYL

Judge he doesnt need to. It was a solid joke and 102 actually i saw a comment with 1700 plus likes on it. The fml where the boyfriend stuck his iphone up his girlfriends vagina and someone commeted "theres no app for that"

You, die of blood loss! You die of blood loss. You'd die of blood loss. Sentence structure changes the meaning, and right now yours is not saying what you meant.

You can die of blood loss because of this issue. I almost did...it causes your iron to dip like crazy which drops your hemoglobin, which can cause major heart failure if it gets really bad. It would be smart for the OP to get her blood tested to make sure this doesn't happen, if it is she will end up getting a blood transfusion. The person's point was very valid, it was just said a bit wrong.

Endometriosis has nothing to do with the ovaries. Endometriosis is when the endometrium grows on the outside of the uterus instead of the inside. Also, the cysts you are talking about is from PCOS (poly cystic ovarian syndrome) and birth control can trigger the abnormal bleeding with the disease.

87- Just to correct you the egg does not descend to the uterus unless it is fertilized in the fallopian tubes first. Which is why some women may experience a tubal pregnancy as the fertilized eggs gets stuck there.

My mom had her period for so long, bleeding so much, that she had to have a blood transfusion and a hysterectomy. It's been three years and she still has to stay on an iron supplement or risk becoming anemic.

I want to say great job on that post! I only have one comment. The fertilization does not happen in the uterus. The sperm actually go up into the Fallopian tube where the egg rests for awhile before moving down into the uterus. After the egg is fertilized it moves down and implants in the wall.

I don't see anything there that say "can't"... Obviously you CAN have sex on your period, but many people DON'T (which is what the above comment actually said) because it's messy and gross. And some guys are afraid of it or something... =

Reply

Some guys find it gross, but i've met some (not slept with) that don't mind it. And actually having sex on your period can help sooth cramps, so it's actually beneficial to some women if they have very strong and painful cramping.

If it's an IUD or implanon this is both not an option and also not an atypical bodily response. I can't speak from personal experience about implanon but with my IUD I bled off and on for a few months, I was lucky it wasn't heavier. I've heard worse cases though where heavy 'period' like bleeding can actually last for six months. If this is the case OP would have been warned with both methods that she may get; irregular bleeding in the first six months, and potentially never get another period after those few months. Everybody's body reacts differently to different medications and obviously OP thought it was worthwhile to stick with her birth control for three months if it was indeed an oral contraceptive (which can also give you irregular periods to begin with).

Sorry, didn't mean to say that you can't 'stop using' implanon and the IUD, just that it's not quite as simple as not taking a pill. Implanon at least you require a buffer zone before it can be removed after it is inserted, I believe.
