Bleeding/Pelvic Congestion

MelG83 posted:
I am 29 years old and have never been pregnant. I started having chronic pelvic pain on both sides in August 2009. I had pain everyday (sometimes in my back) and was bleeding every day. I started taking the pill (Femcon) continuously in December 2009, per my OB/GYN directions (when I reach the placebo, I skip it and just start a new pack -- I haven't had a period since December 2009). An abdominal CT and several ultrasounds did not reveal any mass. A laproscopy in August 2010 found pelvic congestion and did not find endometriosis. I still have pain everyday, although it's less intense. Although I take the pill continuously, I've been bleeding for the past 7 days straight. Not heavy, but more than "breakthrough" bleeding. It's accompanied by back pain and fatigue (I could hardly get up last weekend). Is bleeding a normal symptom of pelvic congestion? Is it normal to bleed while taking the pill continuously? Thank you.
