    Hormones messing with my Body
    An_241987 posted:
    I just stared using Levora (Birthcontrol) on 10/31/11, took it a day before my period started, and had a period that lasted 2 1/2 weeks. I decided I wanted to skip a period, so instead of taking the reminder pills, I started my next pack of Birth Control Pills. My period started on "time" 11/29/11, but it has only been spotting,well a splurt, not a full heavy period or something I would call as "my" normal bleeding pattern. I am now on day 13, finished my second birth control pack while on this new period pattern. This time around I decided to take the reminder pill, hoping my period would come and just finish already. Still getting the "splurt" not like "my" regular period pattern. What do I do? I'm seeing the GYN, but what did I do to my body? Is it the hormones or what? Any kind knowledgeable people please help!
