    Bleeding for over a month
    sasa7272 posted:
    Hi I've been on Sprintec for the past six or seven months. On the second week of the last pack I missed a day and I started bleeding so I took both doses that day and hoped that the bleeding would stop the next day but it didn't. When it came to the next row of the pills I accidentally changed my time and followed that time during the whole next week. I was still bleeding and wasn't able to get in contact with any body so I stopped that pack after the third week and started a completely new one. I'm on the third week of this new pack and I'm still bleeding. Is there anything I can do or do I just need to try and ride it out. I'm wondering if maybe stopping a pack for a week and then starting a new one the next week would help. I just don't know what to do!

    Bleeding for over a month is not normal and needs to be checked out by a doctor.
