    Bleeding On Birth Control
    Anon_235486 posted:
    I have been on birth control for many months now, with no problem. However I tried something different the last month. My doctor told me I could take 3 packets in a row, skipping periods, and so I did that. I'm nearing the end of the 2nd packet now, and I've had light bleeding for almost a week. Is this normal? Can I get it to stop somehow?
